in reply to Friendly home node

I'm going to stick my neck out here, and it'll probably be chopped off by a mass of -- votes. So be it. There seems to be enough direction to the general sentiment that I feel the need to express a dissenting opinion.

I'm not entirely in agreement with everything written or depicted on this node. There are many things on it, in fact, that I strongly disagree with. That said, I'm all for letting it stay, picture and all.

Not for letting its owner suffer a loss of reputation for his opinions, not for showing how the Monastary can be abused, and not for comparing against others, but for letting the person behind the name speak his mind.

If the anti-American or anti-NATO nature of the message is what offends you, maybe you need to stop here and ask yourself why that is the case. Would you be less offended if the message were different, perhaps directed against something that you feel is not right? Can you acknowledge that some people disagree with your opinion of America? What would you say if I were to post an anti-Alex the Serb rant on my home node that attacks his views? (And can you see how some of the replies to the parent were exactly this?)

This post is, of course, my opinion. You're free to disagree with it, just as you are free to disagree with the node in question. I don't think, though, that you have any right to tell me to remove it.
