    @ Nation Network

    Is the reason you employ a white power fist as your symbol of choice because this is a hub for liberal white supremacists to talk code?

    Your response is necessary or I shall have to advise my clients to withdraw investment in your product.

    Please and thanks.

      It’s just a fist of solidarity against Leafs fans actually. LOL. Seriously though, are you a CNN reporter finding fault with anything remotely different from your liberal left wing views? Long live Trump. Haha

      • Peggy McIntosh

        If it is just a fist of solidarity against Leafs fans, why do seven Nation Network blogs – including Leafs Nation – employ the same white power fist?

        I am not a liberal. Not sure why that matters, though.

        Is freedom of respectable speech not acceptable on this forum?

        I am merely a polite customer inquiring if this is a liberal white supremacist blog and if I should advise my fellow clients to divest from the Nation Network.

          What you are doing is threatening the nation with an imaginary boycott, by your nonexistent clients.
          You are not interested in freedom of speech, in fact you are clearly against it.
          I will give you one thing, you are mildly amusing.
          What have you bought here that you call yourself a customer?

          • Peggy McIntosh

            How am I demonstrating that I am against freedom of speech?

            You are the one projecting your mental health issues onto me.

            Depression, OCD, Seasonal Affective disorder…

            May I ask if you are affliced with albinism and a calcified pineal gland?

            And I am a customer that networks with other customers.

            As such, I would like to know why so many Nation Network blogs deploy a white power fist.

            If you truly support freedom of speech, the question should not trigger you.
