I wasn't under the impression that this was a board where we all had to wave the American flag and pretend that everything is apple pie on the 4th of July, but after I posted this photo it was deleted:
I said something like "For Cyzappa and any other Cub fans out there - I took this photo at our parade today. You know it's bad when the ultimate in passivity, the 'wait-til-next-year' Cub fans are protesting."
No private message to explain why it was deleted or anything. I asked why and I got no explanation. I waited for several days because I know people are on vacation and all, but still I have gotten no answer to my question. Was that so bad to get yanked from the forum??? I don't know who was the moderator that deemed it unacceptable, but it seems to me to be unreasonably harsh. It was no more political than the post that began the thread, so I don't think it should have been deleted because it was on the wrong forum.
Ironically, here's the rest of the photo:
Dissent is Patriotic! (Dissent was crucial to Independence.)
and here's the group marching right behind them, the Unitarian Church:
It's not all apple pie, but is it that bad that it needs to be deleted???
