    I respect you guys that run the site, but frankly (no pun intended) I'm a little confused. So please, allow me to step out from behind my screen name and avatar, and hear me out on this.

    It seems to me that anything Frank has posted here is available without restriction on almost any cable channel except perhaps Disney. In fact, most of it is no more racy than the Peter Gowland calendars that were distributed by the Ridgid Tool Company for several decades. To me, this is modern "cheesecake." I see much stronger stuff late at night on Spike TV's "Manswers" program, and I am sure there are quite a few nine-year-olds up watching that program, too.

    Now, I understand a complaint that might be based on morality. In that case, why would we be able to have a "who's drinking with me tonight?" thread, but not a thread with photographs that are no more revealing than what you would certainly see live and in person with your family during a day at the beach, photos intended to cheer a guy making his way through chemotherapy?

    Maybe we need a better definition of what comprises posts that are "inappropriate," and under what circumstances such a determination is to be made. The word "inappropriate" has gained a lot of traction in recent years. It used to be that rules had to be clear and bright in their lines of what is permitted, but "inappropriate" strikes me as one of those words that can be brought out when there is no clear infraction, and used as a catchall when we don't like something, but we are loathe to articulate just "why" we don't like it. While this is popular in legislatures, I think it gives too much latitude (in general) to a few Judges who are empowered to make that determination.

    So, with Frank thusly chastened, I'd like you to make allowances for Frank to be back here to help celebrate Bret's victory this week. I don't think that's too much to ask, and this thread will be better for your kind indulgence.

    Legally yours,

    Admin and moderators,
    I would like to second Timebuilders eloquent disertation requesting " a second change" for Supertech65. I have to say, unless he was warned and the "limits clearly stated" he may have been unfairly banned.

    Although I have not reviewed all of the post by Supertech65, all that I can recall could be considered mildly "Risque'" but none ,that I can remember, were much beyond a PG-13 rating .

    In light of the situation I ask Supertech65 be allowed access, with an appropriate warning if you deem it necessary, to join in "celebration" for FCS.

    Thank you for your equitable consideration.

    CCIKelly
