Sirhan Sirhan appreciates your support, particularly in this election year!

Your hate for America is now on the internet.
Really, dude? The reams of red text weren’t clear enough? Guess who won’t be appearing in this thread again.

Next person will be getting a temporary board vacation. The one after than will get a permanent one. We are not joking when we say no politics.

Mod Note:

We’ve had multiple prior red-text moderation warnings in this thread, including by the site’s owner.

This is your first post on ENWorld…on this account. Given the owner’s post immediately preceding yours, I suspect you’re either a multi or someone who routinely causes issues. As such, you’re not getting a temporary ban- yours is permanent.
