It hasn't been a rule for a while. When you accepted Carolyn Gargaro's
site, the rule wasn't there. You added it when she and Jen nailed you for
accepting CArolyn and then deleting her (with so much as a courtesy note).
I wouldn't bring this up blindly - I've seen the rules since the first
time Carolyn mentioned you weren't responding - more than a month ago.
This isn't an issue of some people not people not agreeing with others on
the ring. This is the pro-lifers not agreeing with your personal
pro-choice ideology. You can't justify having both sides of the gun issue
represented on the ring, and claim a different standard for the issue of
abortion. That's not "freedom" - it's a petty exclusion based on one
