Are you saying they support you martyring yourself for them by having your voice silenced by a block, for things they are unwilling to be blocked to say? I support you to remain here, and to phrase your thoughts in such a way that you can continue to be heard. I can't help but think that would be a better choice for those who agree with your point of view.

But I don't see this as one of those times when there is no other way to stay true to your beliefs. It's possible to express your opinions while staying within the civility guidelines. If you don't wish to, that's fine and it's your choice. But I don't see how it's a better way to exercise your principles.

I appreciate the support of others for my viewpoint and not my martyrdom. But Dr. Bob has just threatened me with being blocked if I do not rephrase my words. No I will not as those are my words and how I chose to phrase them. I knew this would happen just a bit later. I appreciate the support of all and Goodbye again.Farewell to all and good luck.
