    I recommend either banning or at least adding WP jr after their forum names. I have previously complained about other forum members being racist toward Asians but the mods did not reply to those reports. I am glad to see the Mods have changed for the better.

    Some of our less than professional forum members decided it was ok to make fun of the way Asians speak English. TAK warned them and they continued to make racist comments.

    To answer question:
    OP did not delete it.
    I am not aware OPs can delete whole threads.
    I don't know if you still can but use to an OP could delete the OP and the entire thread would go away.

    Saying "[Yes, this is racist Grim - ForumAdmin]" is not being racist towards anyone and anyone who wants to say it is, I say a big FU in return. Thank you for your time.

    There was stuff in that thread that went way beyond of poking fun at the way people talk. If the thread was removed it was most certainly due to the other stuff...not from that.

    Using a fake accent to depict a member of any ethnicity is perceived on this board, by several members, as racist. It is therefore disruptive, whether you believe it to be or not. The forum members have informed you this offends them. The Forum admins have informed you that you are in violation of community policy. Please do not continue to press the case regarding your previous comments.

    And if that's the way this game is going to be played then I will play it too. Then, it will be abundantly clear to everyone how selectively the rules are enforced around here.

    I did not report this post. I graciously accept your FU if you are a woman. It was another post which still exists so I believed the Mods were OKing it so I did not report this in the Benghazi thread. The Benghazi thread did have some very good stuff in it and I wish I would have copy and pasted the comments.
