Solomon's respectable. I could do without the Miami Vice penis-extension that he sticks in everybody's face, but other than that, he is definitely not gay. I even like his back-handed humor which I was once the brunt of. :)

Well, I remember reading his comment that "he gets physically sick" by thinking of gays etc. He is up there with 123456 as this forums first and foremost gay-hater.

Why do gays need their own channel? Shame on you MTV!


EDIT: I think personal attacks like these shouldn't be tolerated. Feel free to tell me to STFU though, I've made some pretty bad remarks in the past. But in my defence, I have changed quite a lot since those days ;)

Why do we need:
- Religious channels
- Comedy channels
- Food channels
- Gold channels
- Home shopping channels
.... etc etc etc.

There is obviously a marked or so it seems. You have to rememeber that gays have money. They don't have kids (for the most) and don't have a normal family's expenses and hence can and do spend more money, hence they are an interesting target groups for marketing and a TV channels for gay people is an excellent direct marketing channel, ensuring maximum exposure to your target group.

Funny that some of you are making jokes about homosexuality. In the end, you'll get what you deserve.

Let's hope it's not as worthless and seemingly full of cliche's as BET or Oxygen.

The moderators here mostly go with the crowd. They don't have much backbone. But that's OK. The personal attacks on me have opposite their intended effect.

I think its wrong for TV stations to alienate people from an entire channel. I shouldn't have to be gay, asian or religious to watch TV, FFS.

Because straights have hundreds of their own channels .
and y'all get pissed anyway (well some) when a show with "a gay" as a character ends up on "your" channel .

I think it is ebrostig that is most interested in this channel. He's the one who hangs out at gay bars all the time.

:wink:

Nope, it's not going to be one of my fav channels, but I figured (and I thought people would find it a bit humerous) that our 2 most ardent anti gay people would enjoy this channel, that's all :)

Gold Channel = Golf channel :) My bad ...

I've never really thought of TV as being Gay or straight. I mean half the people on British TV are gay anyway. I'm sure someone I was speaking to once referred to the BBC as the "Gay Mafia". Indeed there was once a tv show on British TV that an ex girlfriend made me watch that was about a couple of gay guys, think it was called "Queer as folk" but I'm not sure. Once I got over the general eww factor of watching two guys shagging it was actually quite a good program.

Since then The whole gay think doesnt really bother me anymore, I now have a few gay friends and dont really think anything of it.

I'm with Erik on this though(christ twice in one month, I feel a sweat coming on :wink: ), lets sell them stuff. :lol:

Savage.

P.S a23d56: I dont normally make personal comments but in all the posts I have seen you make you have done nothing but attack people, make religious zealot like statements, and generally just annoy people, while adding nothing to the conversation. Are you really that bored/insecure/that much of an idiot. ohh and just for clarity.

ROFL, good one Svein. Ill be sure to pass this too along to my buddies at Oracle. You know they are beginning to really think you are immature. Too bad some of the mods around here dont have the backbone to be consistant and ban you as well.

I find this amusing. If we ban too many people, we're "fascist, overbearing moderators". If we don't ban enough, we lack backbone. Tell you what -- how about if we ban everyone? That way, we'll be consistent...

I grow tired of repeating this, but...as stated in the OTW Guidelines, if you feel you're being personally attacked or a thread is otherwise getting out of hand, please bring it to the attention of one of the moderators.

If you're too lazy to do this, then please avoid griping and whining about any apparent lack of action on our part on a particular thread.
