    Have you ever been to NC for a prolonged time MSgt?

    Right. If you want to complain about these things, you can always go to a Bulletin Board specifically designed to allow for debates about it.

    Oh, wait....

    I used to just merge them, but it's no longer any use. There's a 400 post thread where everyone had their say, and now people are just starting threads over again and going back to the same dumb talking points that we heard 2 months ago.
    How about merging them all then closing the thread

    Someone makes a new thread about the exact same thing, merge it with the closed thread.

    Who cares about speech if all you're going to do with it is open a million threads on the same subject.

    I suppose if folks truly gave a **** about speach they would make better use of it.
