    @TwistedThrottle @Bob Blaylock you are free to post your images again by tonight's cutoff time. There wasn't anything wrong with TT's entry. It was simply an image without any comment. Bob, you aren't permitted to give your opinion of mask wearing or calling people dumb or stupid who hold a difference of opinion with you. That has nothing to do with the challenge and ventures into a political discussion.

    These challenges are simply photo challenges based on whether or not the photographers captured the theme without adding explanations to try and make sense of the subjects or to make the subjects try and fit the theme.

    I only deleted Bob's post when he chose to withdraw from the challenge. We tend to go through and remove posts that derail the challenge threads. Had the comment been posted in a different subforum, it would have been edited but not deleted.

    Any further condescending comments by anyone might result in an infraction and/or a time out.

    Not really the outcome I wanted.

    I do not think that either of our entries should have been censored. I think we both should have been allowed our entries, as they were submitted, with their respective expressions of opposing opinions.

    Censoring both opinions, because of the contrary opinions, was a bad idea. Even worse, though, is censoring one opinion, while allowing the opposing opinion. I cannot think of any circumstances under which i would consider that acceptableness at all.

    The other entry had the comment in the image. Mine needed the comment external to the image, to put it in context.

    The other entry was no less insulting toward those of us who disagree with the opinion that it expressed, than mine was toward those who disagree with my opinion.

    No rational cause exists for you to have censored my entry, without censoring the other entry, though I would also argue that it really wasn't rational to censor either entry.

    I consider your conduct in this matter to be dishonest, cowardly, and a blatant abuse of power.

    In any event, I have to go to work. The deadline is going to pass before I have an opportunity to do anything further with this.

    This is a photography forum, we moderators just do our best to keep this forum going. We've been around long enough to see how opinions on politics, religions or other sensitive subjects can create turmoil that send members away.

    I wish that you would respect our opinions and just live with our decisions. They are after all final. Someone has to draw the line once in a while and in this case, I think Hark did a fine job, please comply.
