What in the world are you rambling on about? Dead issue, it was repealed sometime in the beginning of winter.

1) I have no idea what you just said, except I assume it was in favor of the DADT policy.

2) I thoroughly disagreed with the policy whilst it was in place, both for my own personal proclivity as well as logistically. If servicemembers care to ask about orientation, then another should have the right to speak freely, as long as it doesn't disrupt service.

I suspect that this came from your experiences with DDO members.
First of all, let me address your points:
the fact that people ask questions and get upset with the question
I don't understand...whose questions? I presume it to be the people's, but if it is their choice to ask and inquire, why should they be 'upset with the question'?

if there is a possibality you arent going to hear what you want to hear don't ask and nobody will tell
By that logic, if I ask a question to my teacher ('How would you grade my essay?') and expected a ten, but not a ('one', 'two', 'three', 'four'....'nine'), I shouldn't ask at all.

Ridiculous. People need to learn in different ways, especially if they are given responses outside of their expectations that explain so (i.e. the teacher might explain why he/she would give the paper a six instead a ten and so on).

The rule is not 'don't ask don't tell' nor is it that simple. Basically, if my interpretation is correct, we should evade controversy and issues and risk better judgment.

I'm saying if you are going to get upset about about it and complain but if you can handle it feel free

But that's untrue. Sometimes we NEED to ask questions that we don't want the answer to:

For example (I'm going to put on my hypothetical tinfoil hat here), if the government had a giant conspiracy where they're putting brainwashing substances into McDonald's food, and we inquire and research, and we get the truth, OF COURSE we'd get upset about it. But that seems like a pretty necessary question to ask, don't you think?

Yes but not on that large a scale don't yell at people for an honest answer to your question

You must be referring to our reaction to your racism. I apologize, for myself anyway. It really is not my fault, I'm allergic to stupidity.

Eh....again, it doesn't wash. If you asked someone if they hated Christians, and they said they absolutely did, would you have the right to get mad?

Something seemed vaguely familiar about how calvincambridge spoke, the nature of his threads, and the sheer stupidity of his posts.........he's Inferno.

Nonononono. He popped up before Inferno--I know because I remember the day. And besides, calvin always writes short posts with (to be brutally honest) shoddy grammar, AND he doesn't post in the awkward random skipping, as though he's writing a poem, the way Inferno does.

They're both Christian and they both troll EXACTLY the same way. Inferno trolls by doing deliberate irritating things to provoke a response. Cambridge deliberately reopens old and dead threads because he knows it annoys people. Cambridge I suspect was inferno's original account. If I am wrong, then at the very least I must be correct that this guy has some other account. He's supposedly 55 and racist with a highschool education, but he speaks like an arrogant guy in his 20-30s......something is off here.

Then the problem is how you express yourself, thats all. The way you phrased your regard for black females was offensive.

If you were to say, "You know it's funny but I am not really attracted to black girls". No one can really be offended, unless it's in a context of you being a jerk.

However you said something akin to saying that black and beautiful was an oxymoron. Comes across a little jerkish.

Not that I was particularly offended in the first place.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.
