Am I correct in assuming we lost a strong, caring, speak his mind, man over BS?

Capt has helped me with his humor on my worst days. He speaks his mind. If you don't like him...don't READ him. But taking him from those of us that NEED him is uncalled for. He was the reason I signed up here. and I will miss him.

if anyone attacked jeanne that person should be reprimanded. jeanne is the most giving and loving person ive ever known. her personal loss never held her back from comforting people for one minute. this aint the 1950,s ac , let us destress in our own way. the old englishman who trained me in masonry was a colorful individual. if hes aware of the political correctness were being subjected to right now hes probably spinning in his casket with an erection, making a hollow bonking sound with each revolution.

IMO (as cap'n would say... ) the hurtful comments made to jeannegibbs were far worse than any cuss words dear cap'n ever posted. Stinging remarks and leaps to judgement have no place on a forum like this. I've been astounded at times by how quick some posters are to write comments without first taking the time to read enough of a thread to make a reasonably informed and intelligent response.
Jeannegibbs is the best, and I'm sure she'll be back. Her wisdom and insight are really needed here. I miss her too Mishka.
As for dear, funny, crass yet kind-hearted cap'n I really HOPE he's not gone for good!! He kept me grounded. He made me laugh, I mean really LAUGH, and if he's really gone I'm going to miss him more than words can say.

I agree with JessieBelle. I do not worry about them censoring their site. They are pretty good, actually, about what we write, IMO. I was on the Stephen King forum -Stephen King for goodness sakes!!- and the moderator there would not let you cuss at all! And you could get kicked off for it. Also she was in love with Pres. Obama which is just fine but she would censor any posts that would speak , even politely, against him. (they had an off topics thread). I finally left when she shut down my thread about how upset I was about Pres. Obama poking fun at the Special Olympics-- (think years ago). I am not trying to start a political thing here --nor there -I just was voicing my sadness as a Mom to a child with special needs and she shut my thread down!!(though kept up the many, many threads against Bush). Sooo- I think this site is actually pretty fair. IMO IMO IMO ;o)

Saying that I do want to reiterate that I enjoy Capnhardass's posts very much (for the most part ;o) I totally agree with him that we need to have more fun on here. More pictures, more links. For many of us this is our social life-- the virtual world has become our one link to the "outside". I have no friends in the real world. I used to. But they all went away. Or I shut them out.. IDK. All I know is when I feel lonely and crappy sometimes the threads that are humorous and raunchy are the very ones that make me feel better. Sometimes I don't have the energy to help someone with their problems ( though I usually do like to give advice ;) -just not when really stressed) and I just want/need to laugh.

As for jeannegibbs- I think she is a wonderful helper here. When I was freaking out about my Mom's meds--at like midnight-- she got back to me and really helped me think it through. I have noticed that she would try and answer many of the posts that did not get a lot of traffic and she has a pretty funny sense of humor. It pops up when I least expect it and only makes me laugh all the harder. I miss her and hope she is OK. I know she has been through a lot. She has been in my thoughts and prayers. Actually, guys, you all have been.

Wow, Cap'n......you must really rock to have a thread started in your behalf...lol... I must say.....I am one of your "silent" followers.....n I find your humor extremely helpful, being a full time caregiver for both parents.....you have this unique way of bringing the "shock" value out of the English language......I've never laughed so hard at the constant use of the 4 letter words of the alphabet, as I do when reading your posts....I have learned to truly appreciate the bounty of uses for the word...f***!!!! What an epiphany....thanks, cap'n......you're awesome...

I just read this thread and want to chime in as the voice of reason. AC is a business that provides this support group as a courtesy. This group is public and is searchable on Google. AC has the right to moderate in whatever way they choose, because it is their public image. They have a right to protect that image, because this is their livelihood. If we are a member of the forum, we need to have respect for the AC staff that makes the forum possible.

Well said Mishka!! I've been trying to come up with a response for the last hour and just couldn't find the words (I think I'm a little OCD myself when it comes to that....sometimes I obsess so long over what to say and how to say it that by the time I hit "submit" my post isn't even relevant any more! ;)). I especially like the middle paragraph - the whole reason I sought out this site in the first place was because I have no one else (other than my husband who's just a burnt out as I am) to talk to. I do have a couple of friends left but they each live hundreds of miles away and although I communicate with them via email now and then I'm reluctant to "unload" on them because I'm afraid it will drive them away. One has never done this before so can't relate. The other spent several years caring for her mom with cancer and finally lost her a little over a year ago...Last thing I want to do to her is vent about my problems and dredge up all the pain and stress she went through.
I've seen some editing here that I thought was a bit over the top, but for the most part I think it's reasonable. As Jessiebelle pointed out the posts here are more public than some may realize, and although I might not always agree with the way AC sometimes edits stuff I respect whatever obligation they must feel to do so.

Reason comes in various forms, as does venting. I am more concerned about the silent, unstable individuals in our society and the insidious plotting of governments to take away God-given freedoms.
If a few words from the "not preferred list" offend, change your channel. Blatant superficial rants mean Nothing. Look into the heart and soul of honest, outspoken people like capnhardass. You will want to be alongside him if our freedoms are further threatened, not someone who keeps it all inside. Control. That's scary.
It's so frustrating to see judgments made about Crappola that doesn't matter.
Oh yea, IMHO. Forgot that important requisite:)) Softens my point, right? xo
