all threads go too shit. norm is right.
about fuc*ing time.
Your arguing apples and oranges. Here's where you went astray.
In response to JB saying it is a free service to you, you make the point that there is revenue to the operator(s). That is beside the point JB made. As an aside: Who cares? It's free to you and everyone else.
To which you respond:Originally Posted by MorrisWR
Your insult was equating SGN with Daily Kos or Democrat Underground. You missed the boat. Nowhere in this thread was anyone taking issue with capitalism or SGN generating revenue, for whatever purpose.Originally Posted by Balog
To be clear again, the issue is someone feeling entitled to some sort of elevated privilege to guide the operation of SGN, just because you are a member/contributor here.
Oh and BTT.
Some changes were made. People commented on them. Other people got their panties in a twist that anyone would dare to offer an opinion about the site. I pointed out that this is a business dependent on its users to generate revenue. That's it. No entitlement, no demands to be able to boss the site owners around, nothing. Everything else exists only in the minds of folks who are determined to be offended.
I also note that I didn't compare SGN as a whole to DU/Daily Kos, I compared the people whining that I had pointed out that this site is a business to the posters on DU/Daily Kos.

Please be more explicit if you only meant a few people and not "this site." (For the record, I was not insulted.)
And again, you make the mistake that people are coming down on capitalism. Whether it is socialistic or capitalistic is only a point being made by you. You miss the point. People were and still are taking issue with bitching about a free service. If that is not clear by now, I am not sure what else I can do to help you.
Everyone needs to quit bickering and go out and enjoy the Holiday weekend & the sunshine. This thread has turned into the perfect example of why the mods have so much un-needed babysitting to do. Keep your arguments to pm's.

1. offering feedback is not bitching.
2. as for it being a free service, that's sort of a half truth innit?
Again, I don't object to the business model. I think it's a wonderful idea, and I'm glad for this site and that it's been able to be successfully monetized.
Also, I think I'll go back to lurking the FS forums. Have a good weekend all, and hopefully the terminally offended don't get thrown from that high horse...
You CLEARLY missed my post in regards to this. Here it is again for you.
The bottom line here is whether you think you're right or wrong you are barking up the wrong tree by criticizing the site, assuming the staff is getting rich off the members and making unrealistic comparisons. No matter how hard you try to win this argument I am here as the site Admin to assure you that you will only lose in the end.
