oh hell, as long as they're not endangering anybody else..............i think its safe to say that the majority of us have done this in the past although i was not able to read the post in question and am not privy to all their ages nor their circumstances.

Damn I saw this and I thought you were talking about my boss from last season (Treasure Island Scout Res Waterfront director, missed our goddamn national inspection cause he was too hung over from drinking on an outlying island the night before). ;)

You're such a square. [:D]

Well, that's a little ridiculous, especially in light of the fact that every member who posted in the thread was basically calling the drunken teens in question a bunch of idiots. Not like we were egging them on to drink more - you know, "advocating" an illegal activity. I guess the next "How fast have you driven" post is a goner. Especially in light of the fact that the only illegal activities that are prohibited by the code of conduct concern illegal firearms stuff and the purchase of illegal items.

will we now lock threads that discuss going over the speed limit? [rolleyes] howabout a "tell us about the first time you got drunk" story thread? what if we hear about underage drinkers there? *gasp*

Ok. I'm back at home and I'll let you know what happened. I drank one Smirnoff Ice which has the same alcohol content as beer. I threw up later that night which I think was from eating a bunch of Ramen noodles and junk food. I didn't get drunk, I really didn't even feel it at all. I didn't like it either, and I don't plan on doing it again. I sat there with my friends, I didn't go on the river or even near it. We just sat and talked until about midnight and then went to sleep.

It's not the only ridiculous lock lately either...

It's always better to sweep it under the rug than to address such behavior directly and attempt to steer those concerned in the right direction.

Yes. It was an disturbing yet well made film that immersed the viewer into the dark and lascivious side of teen society. If you found "Kids" to be engaging, I suggest that you also see "Bully" starring Brad Renfro.

Locking a thread just becase an 18 year old had some beer? WTF is happening to this god damn place?

It is the strict enforcement of existing laws. Either you are with the president or you are against him.

WTF? has ARFCOM been bought out by the PC police? Guess what bk? It's silly, totally lame stuff like this that really makes one think when it comes time to renew memberships. This isnt a threat, nor is it some type of vague hint, just the truth. WTF is going on? "We do not discuss illegal activites"? Yes we do, all the time. Check the legal forum. Check the GD. There is all kinds of stuff that could be potentially illegal. How about the "shooting looters thread"? I know it is a fine line, but IMO, this is way off center.

It was addressed, just not in public.

guess what guys i took out the trash this morning ... and I didn't separate out the recyclables if you want to do the same, i suggest putting them inside a plastic sack, and putting rotten food on top. that way the trash guy doesn't feel like diging around to bust you for "trash mixing". bwa ha ha ha ha IBTL

Let's see BK....that would mean any discussions of using Kazaa for MP3's should be locked...what about when someone discusses shots fired under a questionable circumstances....or shooting in city limits... I guess we will have lots of posts about "Wow the sky sure is blue today" , "What color are your fuzzy bunny slippers?", "Who is your favorite democrat ever to hold office?" I believe the BATF would more concerned about illegal activity posts referring to illegal manufactioning or modifications....not posts about Litlle Johnny having his first beer and horking his guts up.... I can see the JBT raids now on the local highschool parties.... Evaluate your actions Mike. Will locking a thread about under age drinking prevent it from happening again? Definitely not. Will it solve some social il? Once again ..no. It was not as if he discussed how to falsify ID's to buy liquor, or even how to use a weapon to best hold up a liquor store to get his booze. I highly suspect that the members of this board oppose and will not tolerate censorship, or tyrant like behavior. Now is the time for my public service message: Kids, remember this, drinking alcoholic beverages kill brain cells, and that the loss of braincells is the leading cause of democrats. So don't drink.....do it for your country....

Umm... no. There were some private, personal issues at hand also. The thread was simply moved to the Moderator forum. That's all [:)]

Yes I do, but I don't think that is the point people are making here. Most people were rough on them for their behavior. Hell we have enough fathers in here. But the reasoning Mike gave for moving it to the Mod's forum... [red] . . has been moved to the Mod forum. We do not discuss illegal activities on this board. A group of 8 teens, the oldest of which is age 18, drunk and puking around a flood-swollen river qualifies as an illegal activity[/red] ...is garbage. I understand people don't want teens drinking, and that it is against the law. However many other topics would fall under the guise of illegal activities.....as I posted earlier today...

Yes in perfect world. By 14 I had bought beer on a fake ID. Smoked pot. Smoked cigarettes. Lost my cherry. Owned 2 firearms. Lettered 2 times in Jr. High football. Set local records on the swim team as well as won state wide honors. Ran track (sucked). And many more things.
