I am afraid that's precisely what you have done with your peurile outbursts of how the board sucked and how "freedom of speech" on a private board entitles you to rude, condescending behavior. Freedom of speech was concieved so that revolutionary ideas like "the earth goes around the sun" would not automatically result in loss of life. It was concieved so that thinkers in society could question what royalty or governments were doing. To think that all it means to you is give you the right to go around shouting 4-letter words in polite company indicates a severe lack of maturity. You have wasted a lot of bandwidth by purporting to tell long-time residents here how to do things; this will hardly endear you to anyone, least of all the Baba who has been here and well-liked for a long time. You are taking on the wrong guy: you have incurred the Baba's wrath; I suggest you either slink away with your tail between your legs, or calm down a little bit and lose the smart-ass attitude.
