This forum is seriously turning into flame wars, trolls and other kinds of haters. It's getting pretty pathetic in many ways. There needs to be stronger moderation here. I'm open minded about people's opinions but it's getting ridiculous nowadays. Personal attacks and name calling are so middle/high school. It's not warranted on a forum; like what kind of person takes the time to bash someone they have never personally met just cause they are pissed about what they wrote? I can maybe understand if you personally know them and so have some kind of connection but on a virtual forum? I think it will just turn off the good posters in the long run and you can see this happening as of now. Sometimes being too liberal about the posting rules actually impedes the long term survival of discussion boards.

Well love is a bit strong a term to use. I will say basic human respect and decency. Now i have been a bit harsh sometimes myself and i admit it and try to tone it down.
The newbies have been getting extremely out of hand and they should be immediately deleted. That would keep the wars down and productivity up. I have asked Winston to give me the power to do that and i have heard nothing.
I have zero tolerance and zero patience for people who have nothing to offer.
I suspect that a major issue is that many of our topics, hits upon core issues and deep-rooted psychological underpinnings.
For example, the image of the baby Jesus and the Madonna/Mother Mary is a huge part of, I believe, the archetype of the male upbringing. Hence, many fellas unconsciously aspire for that connection. After all, it's in the mosaic of the religion itself, along with some natal experiences. In the latest blow up, Oil Trader/Hal Lindsey was repeatedly subjected to the idea that women were more the Pop Star Madonna than the Mother Mary one. Well, after a while, it hits critical mass and the firestorm erupts, with Biblical flamethrowing et al. I'm not surprised, just surprised at how quickly it happened.
So yeah, I agree, people who enter this forum have got to realize that it's non-mainstream, plain and simple. Adulating women or hosting sacred cows, isn't what goes on here. Instead, it's an honest look at ourselves and the world(s) we live in, with a few sidebars and add-ons.
This is a non right wing website. And we strive to keep it about going abroad or dating abroad. The extreme people are coming here with great frequency. One thing i disagree with Winston is this yes everybody has freedom of speech, yet when they cross the line and threaten people that should not be tolerated and they should be booted off.
Simple life rules. Going online is like being invited to someones house for dinner. If they ask you to remove your shoes and put on slippers you do it. If not then leave. You either introduce yourself to other people there or wait to be introduced. You do not demean your hosts house or children, you keep everything polite. Simple right yet so many people refuse to treat online engagements in the same way, like they were home trained.
I tell Winston all the time this is your house and if this was my house you would be thrown out immediately for creating some of these infractions.
Basically if you are a Tom Leykis fan then this place is for you. If not then the 700 Club or Creflo Dollar or any of these other religious places.
You guys are the biggest bunch of crybabies I ever heard in my entire life, are you sure you guys are men? If you are men, you are unlike any other men I have ever met or even heard of, it's like you're all a bunch of sissies or something, maybe this is your problem why you cannot get girls, you're all too scared to even go up to the dumb broads and treat them like who and what they are.
I mean seriously, listen to all of you, "oh where is the love on this board", give me a break, love on a board?
Maybe this board should be called "yellow submarine" instead?
Come on everybody, let's all sing together, "we all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine, we all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine", come on don't be shy, join in everybody......
Maybe this board should be called "sissies r us"?
Welcome to Sissies R Us everybody, enjoy your stay, if you like to f**k hoes and get your dick sucked you've come to the right place.....
No wonder women complain, "where have all the men gone", obviously American society has turned all of you into first class whopping girly men......
Listen, don't any of you sissies move to Las Vegas, trust me you wouldn't make it here, the guys would kick your asses and the women would shit down your throat.....
I don't think I ever in my life seen a bigger bunch of losers and sissies in my entire life, a bunch of worthless two-bit whiners and complainers and sissies and backwards Godless freaks in my entire life, what planet did you freaks say you were from again?
You know something, not one of you is even one tenth of one percent the man I am, I could kick all your punk asses so easily you cannot even begin to imagine it. It's no wonder I work from home and won't go out anymore, it's because right in front of my eyes over the last 30 years you guys have turned into total scum bags everywhere I go, brainless clueless scum at every possible corner and in every possible way.
Now you want to know where the "love" has gone from this board.....
Oh you mean the love where you call Filipinas Cattle and stupid and they EAT EAT EAT, is that the love you're talking about here?
This has got to be the biggest loser forum I have ever seen in my life by a thousand times.....
Maybe you guys need to talk with Dr Phil, he might be able to help you out, I'm sure he loves you enough to help you out, and together maybe you could find some answers, we'll get you Dr Phil to help you with your problems, and we'll get you Richard Simmons to help you with your weight problem, how would that be?
Bunch of two-bit sissy boys on this forum.....
You know something, from my perspective women are superior to you, and they are inferior to me by a thousand times......

OilTrader, you've lost your marbles. For one, you're a what ... ~28 year old virgin looking for June Cleaver. You don't even have any experience, you're living in some Numerology bubble with yourself.
When I was 18, I was dating an 18 year old Premed and an 18 year old pre-PhD. Both were modern American women and one of them was actually a decent person until she joined in cult in medical school. By 24-25, I was traveling the world and actually seeing the differences between our respective societies.
Now, you show up and all of a sudden, you are some Master of the Universe/Fibonacci Commodities Trader, King of LV, all because some guys on a forum decided to talk trash about women but yet, you've never dated a Brazilian or Singaporean woman in your life.
So really, what do you know (besides the divinity bully pulpit) and why are you here? You belong elsewhere, please find this alternate forum.
Well that much is for sure, but I just want you to know, if you ever got around me and started talking about how Filipinas were Cattle and stupid and they just EAT EAT EAT, you would get a fist right smack into your mouth, real super hard to.....
I guess that's why they refer to you men as "white devils"......
You're total scum of the earth, going around to other countries trying to get 18 year olds when you are 50, losers of the highest possible order. And believe me, if it wasn't against the law, you would get yourself a 13 year old.......
I can see now why Winston is your hero, a fat stupid Chinese guy that his own people laugh at and ridicule because he is so fat, can you imagine that? How many fat Chinese people you see? And this guy has the nerve to call American women fat?
Fat ass Chinese man looking for hot model type women, don't have any money, don't have any class, don't know how to dress, have a bad attitude towards everything in life, looking for a hot model that's super smart to have long intellectual conversations with.......
It's mind boggling what you losers are, just mind boggling, if any of you spineless sissies had any nerve whatsoever you would just go out and start asking women out, but NO, you are too chicken for that, so you go overseas because that's all you can get.....
Whereas I have the opposite problem, I could get any one of this hoes I wanted to, I go overseas to find a quality Godly girl, not for prostitutes and bar chicks like you guys do.....
Come on, I want to hear the one where Filipinas are like Cattle again, where they have family and morals and values and are all friends with each other and have a rich culture that is real, you call that Cattle, and that is because you're all a bunch of Mcdonalds breed worthless losers in this life......
I should have known better before I ever came here this is what I'd find.....

Considering that a Filipina woman, married to an old friend of mine, is one of my best friends, you'll never see me engage in that type of national/ethnic mud slinging. But that's just it, I ignore it and move on. I let the sidebars have their day in the sun.
As for the age thing, I don't see any pedophiles here, despite the sentiment towards younger women.
And even for me, < 25 is too young these days. I want a woman in her thirties who understands life a bit more.
All and all, what's apparent in this forum is that men let loose about their feelings towards women. If that's bothersome to you then maybe you need to find a different place, closer to that olde New England gentry than that of the modern disconnected males.
Are you talking about yourself? You're the most right-wing member here and have the most extreme ideas.
I too tire of these pointless picture prostitutes and their brain numbing memes and gifs. But what can we do? The future is theirs! Perhaps get a better video card and new monitor capable of 1920x1080 and the pictures won't seem so big.
The problem is not enough people on here get involved. Most of the members of this forum lurk in the background but never say anything. And there are a lot of readers who won't create usernames and don't contribute anything. So it becomes a popularity contest on certain topics. If you're got an opinion that's unpopular in modern culture, too bad. It means you're a nut-case and you will be given the same treatment you would get on any other forum. You repeatedly read how the men on here are free-thinkers but besides one or two issues, they're really not. Also we tend to only respond when we disagree with someone. I know when I read something I really appreciate, I rarely respond. If the topic is truly original and "fringe", silence might further alienate the writer.
I think we're all here for the same reason, we're refused a lie. You can categorize it many ways. We can call the lie American women. Or modern marriage. Or just feminism. Or Anglo-American society.
Some of us are satisfied with learning of the one lie. (Steve55)
Some of us don't even want want to admit there is a lie! (ladislav, momopi)
The rest of us have learned of a few more lies, all related to our short-term interests. And that is the limit of our world so to speak.
But a few of us have decided to keep going. We've learned 5 or 6 or 10 lies.
To a person who learned 5, a person with 6 is interesting. To a person with 4, a 6 is insane. To a 2, a 6 is a troll and should be banned.
I think this is why some of the conflict arises.
Excuse me but when did believing that Jesus was a historical figure (not a fictional character) become so controversial that people are foaming at the mouth?
I'm hoping you photoshopped the eye shadow in.
