Slaphead moderator politically correct

There was this thread "Gay drinks Zurich" closed by Slaphead. That's a real China-like politycally-correct policing or are we in Barosso's EU now?

Re: Slaphead moderator politically correct

Ya right The question was: Do you come to a gay meet up - the answer was: yeah we want to see lesbians wrestling.
The expression politically correct is always used when something doesn't please one's ego in a thread. Well, just start a thread about "girl wrestling" (and they won't be lesbians, btw) and let the gay adults alone if they organize something that obviously is not for you.

Re: Slaphead moderator politically correct

Sounds like someone had a real zinger to post, funny pic uploaded to Photobucket, and ZAP- thread closed!

That thread was a mess and Slaphead did the right thing.

OK, let's look at this. The thread in question was:
  • four months old
  • pointedly abandoned by its originator (quite understandably given the general tone of responses)
  • being dredged up futilely - again quite understandably, but still futilely - by new arrivals to the forum.
Closing it is the normal response to that situation. Nothing to do with the thread's subject, everything to do with its trajectory.

The following should go without saying but apparently doesn't:
If you are, or anyone else is, interested in organizing a Gay Drinks Night, please feel free to post a new thread proposing one. Better yet, put an event on the social calendar.
