... I don't agree.

This is just too big to be ignored or put aside because "There are other venues to express our feelings regarding calamities currently in the news." . Therefore, if I'm not allowed to express my feelings about this I have no other choice than to leave this forum, so please delete my account (or tell me how to do it myself, I don't seem to be able to find how).

Not a great loss anyways for the forum  smile

Enjoy your watches. Fabio out.

Thoughts about freedom, our forum . . .

. . . and the manner in which we conduct ourselves here. Yesterday I posted about my father's colleague, Angelo Chatas. The villagers of Ste Marie du Mont were so grateful for his heroics during D-Day that they named a street after him. [photo courtesy pp...  

Not to be too nitpicky...

...but many countries (probably most?) do not have anything resembling a first amendment right to free speech. Even the one we have in the US is being eroded every day... But I do agree with the sentiment...this is a watch forum first and foremost. Then s... 

Hahaha ;)

Excellent point.... This speech from veteran Travis Haley that he made way back in 2013 resonates to the fullest extent to this day, as if he had made it presently....

Well Said Sir

This is one of the few places I can come to get away from what we have to look at every single day on the news…

I probably agree, as hard as it is for me to agree. Bastard. Lol

Clearly, I agree patently on what you are saying here....

 
 By: InHavenPro : March 3rd, 2022-23:59
The one thing I am in objective disagreement with is your statement just before you locked the previous thread 'What may be an objective opinion to you...' Clearly, there is no such thing as 'an objective opinion'. All opinions are subjective and as such,... 

Let's change my wording to . . .

 
 By: Dr No : March 4th, 2022-00:49
. . . 'what may be an undisputed opinion to you may not be to someone else'. Better? ...

Hilarious. Yes.

First, thanks for sharing the heart-warming WWII story of bravery and conviction of purpose…

Second, I think the Moderators have done an admirable job of navigating content during these difficult times. My day often begins with catching up on world news via the BBC. This site is always in the early morning mix, with an espresso, for a perusal of ...

With all due respect I have to disagree . . .

. . . because it is a loss for our forum. Any person who participates in good faith is welcome here; we will be poorer for your absence. Regretfully, Art

Agree 💯

It is not that only political threads are censored (which is fine for me)...

 
 By: penfriend : March 4th, 2022-09:24
.. but also threads where people express their opinion on watches. I have said that before: there is no need to celebrate each watch as a beauty, it must be allowed in a watch forum to call a watch 'ugly' as a member did some time ago (and then he was att... 

You do have a point.

In my opinion, of course. Cheers, Filip

Don't forget that some brands have a financial relationship with this forum. Expressing a personal opinion may not please these brands.

Watchprosite maintains editorial independence on all forums . . .

. . . sponsored or not. So long as Terms of Conduct are adhered to, all opinions are allowed. Best, Art

Was the watch that was called ugly . . .

 
 By: Dr No : March 4th, 2022-15:51
. . . owned by a fellow community member? If so, please refer to our Terms of Conduct. I would be surprised if it weren't, and appreciate knowing the details before commenting further. (You may send me a private message.) As for tawdry comments and images... 

I don't think it was owned by someone, it was a thread on opinions for that watch I believe

 
 By: penfriend : March 4th, 2022-16:12
And the moderator did not argue with your argument of personal ownership, it was more like negative opinions on watches in harsh words should not be mentioned on WPS. But I cannot be 100% sure as it has been deleted quickly. I came across it accidentally ... 

Agree
