That's not bullying. I get you're offended, I felt the op could have chosen different words or not made the thread, I can't control that. I can only control my reaction.

I've found plenty of things offensive here in my nearly 4 years of being a member, and yet I'm still around. Because the good far outweighs any bad. Is it perfect, no, but I've yet to find a forum that is.

Thing is he won't escape that, that's life. Nothing is stopping someone from walking up to him and calling him some nasty names to his face. No one can control that, you can only react to it and handle it yourself when it happens.

Of course not, I would hope most would be more respectful than that but there are those type of people out there.

There is something very wrong with this forum.

It allows for other individuals to be personally bullied to the point where they can be called any derogatory name allowed.

That is not free speech. That is idiocy blanketed by a term about which this forum is clearly oblivious.

Gasp

The forum moderators = Hobo

I have enough sense to leave a forum with no sense.

You said I was a "dick" in another thread and now you're butthurt because someone called you an "asshole"? I'm glad he didn't call you a whole ass....because that would have been tragedy for you. Do what a lot of other members do and neg rep the clown. I'd do it for you, but this forum discriminates against certain members so I can't. People with Neg rep don't have the same freedom of speech on this forum as positive repped members.

RE: I must leave
Hi Foxen (If you are still here).

Sorry to hear that you have been upset. IMHO it is unwise to get emotionally involved in an internet forum. The only thing that us ordinary posters are responsible for is our own words, others will say what they want. If there is some flaming we can always switch off.

I have left a few forums over the years, but only through boredom. If you are still around I would recommend taking a rest and then look back in another time; if you still feel uncomfortable then move on. The web is a big place.

ATB,

D.

Well don't let the door hit ya where millions of years of evolutionary mutations split ya.

Seriously dude, if you can't handle what was obviously a philosophical question on the power of racial slurs, and not an intent of using those words as actual slurs, than perhaps the internet is not for you. Consider unplugging and finding a nice enclave in the 19th century. The Amish may be willing to take you in. Or, perhaps the Mennonites (some of the Amish actually use the internet now to advertise their businesses and the "bad" may still get to you).
