    Well... like someone else mentioned, This isnt my forums and I dont make the rules, so I can choose to obey them or leave, simple as that. And honestly my sig doesnt mean that much to me, so I think I'll stick with mmanews.

    No, actually I don't. Notice I don't bring it up.

    What I meant Clint is the recent freakout of Wadokai started over a political avatar, but it seems there is a rash of threads like that that don't have anything to do with politics. I saw something very similar at another forum I belonged. The "feedback" subforum was a constant battleground. I don't know if it is inevitable when a forum grows to this point, or if it is the rep system making everyone nuts, or if it is how staff is handling it. I don't envy you the hassle. Frankly, I'm sorry I posted any comment at all. I don't care to create any more drama. Feel free to delete my posts if you think it may get people started.

    well, as much as i'm against censorship such, i hated the political sigs i saw here when i first came. i mean seriously, barack hussein obama; the most popular candidate in the middle east? wtf? are you retarded?

    i wish people would have some fucking taste, especially since we are a global internet community here. some people want to ruin everyone's fun

    and honestly... it seemed like a choice few of the people on this forum followed obama around all day waiting for him to do something muslimy... get a fucking life people. let's go back to talking about flying gogoplatas

    Anyways it's not like you haven't have objectifying posts on here before. Sure it was objectifying men but objectification is objectification:

    Here I am Clint entering my financial data into Quicken, and I jump on the forum for some entertainment. Little did I know. More entertainment than I expected.

    Some of you guys are unreal!

    You can have your Political sigs, just not a negative!

    How the hell is this anything worth getting your panties in bundle about?

    Do some of you people a vast collection of "McCain sucks cock" or "Obama = The AntiChrist" sigs?

    Shut The Fuck Up!

    If we aren't allowed to call a fighter a cocksucking, child molesting, Canadian donkey puncher, then what the hell is different than banning doing it with political figures in sigs and avs?

    Its just a Sig/Av. Why is this difficult?

    I'm convinced that some poeple are just determined to whine, bitch, moan, groan, sob, argue, disagree, etc, with anything that they don't like.

    Mods, throw everyone that is arguing this rule in The Hole for a few days, and Neg Nuke 'em. From where I sit, this item wasn't up for discussion. So arguing the rule is worthy of some infraction. "

    Politics and religion have their places, it's just not allowed at the bar or my MMA getaway so if you can't find something else to put in your sig go fuck yourself. No one was putting this shit in their sigs here last year and everybody was fine, it seems now you want to bitch for the sake of bitching. Just because you were told you can't do something your all up in arms.

    I say you fucking neg nuke a min of 50%, more if they are whining about getting negged and deserved it anyway!
