not the banning, but the situation created a need for you to decide what YOU will do or not do about it, as it has for each of us and the very reason for this thread here.
It's just a reaction to a situation, like finding frost on the windscreen means you have to scrape it off. The following analogy is too dramatic for my purposes and is ripe for being quoted out of context, but i sense some of the relief of an abused spouse who's gotten clear of the relationship. She's willing to suffer indignities in return for security; i've been willing to suffer arbitrary punishment in order to have fraternity.
I've simply decided not to insult my intelligence by typing "ghey" or "Natzi" ever again, even if the Gestapo were to tolerate my presence. There's nothing at all creative about that, while creativity is the essence of, the raison d'etre for, a John Galt.
The original Romans of Fine Woodworking fame were Galtish. The current crowd is why Rand argued against inherited wealth. The org isn't managing very well at the bottom nor apparently at the top, leading me to the conclusion that the true cause of this Obamassacre isn't likely a group of people discussing Palin's wardrobe, but rather a systemic problem in management.
