I'm getting the distinct impression that certain opinions (mostly my own) are being censored on these forums. I find it ludicrous that half-baked kids in their early twenties can be allowed to post anti-war messages and other naive political drivel that has nothing whatever to do with the subjects of purposes of these boards, while I have voiced several well-considered opinions from the viewpoint of one has over 50 years of life experience, only to find my posts deleted the next day.

I have tried to be kind, thoughtful, and genuinely helpful to everyone on these boards, and I believe that many of you here will agree that I've been somewhat successful in those efforts. However, I am an opinionated person - you get that way with experience - and when I see someone saying things that I know to be wrong, I make an effort to set the record straight. If that is perceived as a character flaw these days, then I am a flawed person, and damned proud of it.

Kevin, if you take such exception to my words that you feel it necessary to delete them so that some thin-skinned twit who hasn't lived long enough to know squat won't be offended by them, I'd appreciate you telling me just what it is you object to, and why. You've chosen some of the oddest things for deletion, while leaving others intact, in an almost contradictory fashion. If others are allowed to voice strong opinions that, quite frankly, offend me, then I should be allowed to counter those opinions without being censored. Just my opinion.
