    Weekly Digest Post (3/23/20)

    In the most recent Weekly Digest a photo was posted by or of Ron Durkin. Someone in the photo is giving the photographer 'the finger'. I don't think such an obscene thing should be allowed to be posted. If the 'fingurer' is that upset or does not like and/or appreciate his and his motorcycle photo being taken, perhaps it should be deleted. If the person in the photo is a member and refuses to stop posting/displaying such obscenities, then maybe he should be blocked or otherwise not allowed on the forum. Thank you for your otherwise timely posting summaries.

    I think it's posts from the My community section of the MOA website.

    Also reminds me that lots of people like to have their picture taken with their tongue out

    I have trouble navigating that part of the website. If I try to click on a post I usually get a message like I don't have access or I'm not connected to that member.
    I have to admit I don't try very hard to navigate the site.

    Would you define what holding up that finger means? I would like to know what you are so mortally offended about!

    The guy in the photo must be Italian; I think it’s Italian for “Mercedes Wins Again!”

    But I could be wrong...

    Is this for real? This is a forum for ADULTS. Even if I found the photo objectionable, I would just shake my head and move on to the next post.

    It's pretty obvious that the guys are having some fun and the finger is not expressing hostility.
    Obscenity is in the behind of the holder.

    Exactly! My buddy gets a kick out of it when we pull up to a stop light and he looks over and I give him the finger out of the blue.

    Joking around, I see no issues. Heck the last place I worked it got to be known as the company salute! I would walk into a job site and there would be 3-4 guys popping the "bird" to me when I walked in the door. I haven't worked there for years and I run across one of the guys from time to time and we give each other the good old company salute!

    I also understand we all don't come from the same backgrounds. Some people are quite a bit more reserved, some are hell bent on destruction. We have to meet in the middle some where. I am sure there are people here from the Hells Angels to God fearing bible thumpers. We have to met in the middle of the bell curve somewhere.
