      1. Because there are those who believe drones are brilliant weapons……

      they allow for no-risk murder anywhere on the planet.  Two arguable sides.  Therefore, extremely controversial.  Like me putting brown sugar in my coffee this morning instead of white.

        2. But this is a factual post about people

        who resisted.  Why is that a Controversy?  Just something we are not supposed to talk about?  Can you imagine anyone here thinks they are brilliant weapons??  I certainly hope not as this is supposed to be a progressive board.  Is it because there are activists?

          3. The exact same questions I and others asked about war propaganda

          being labeled an extremely controversial topic.

            4. Yes. It does appear that this board

            has morphed; labeling actual events and preponderance of evidence as Extreme Controversy makes me disappointed.

              5. You can still talk about it.

              I don’t see the reason for some of them talking about it, but they can if they want to.

                6. Thanks for your permission.

                I actually find discussing propaganda that causes suffering and horror, and that has been used to do it successfully over and over all around the world quite important.  In order to stop the next atrocity.  Sort of a big deal, to me and millions/billions? of others on the planet and even right here – at a place we all believed this was a progressive view to have.

                11. I don't understand.??

                Why shouldn’t we talk about actual facts?  Is there a reason that we should not talk about facts?  Why are FACTS an Extreme Controversy?  Are we NOT SUPPOSED to talk about Drone Warfare?  Is that it?  I don’t understand.

                  13. My point is that drone warfare is as Extremely Controversial as

                  propaganda used to enable horror and suffering.  Both are factual events …….. but only one is relegated to a forum that not many will visit to even see.  So I choose to post anything and everything that has room for any argument for or against, at all, and could be considered Extremely Controversial by even one person on this planet in the one spot it won’t be deleted, disappeared, and I won’t be insulted for posting it.

        20. Polly, if you think this is clever and helps your argument

        You’re wrong.

        We have repeatedly stated that objections to rules, or anything on JackpineRadicals can be discussed. There’s been no discussion. Just snark, attacks and a whole bunch of crap

      19. We don't know because we didn't put it there. You'll have to ask the OP.

      Question answered, closing thread.
