It merely happens that the admins prefer to keep it relaxed. The fact that you can't use the rep system is not in any way a diminishing of the fact that you *can* if you want to, say more or less what you like, and no one will stop you, although we might use *our* free speech to tell you what a pointless dickhead you are.

Whiny shit.

Today.....I am not the dickhead. Today we have seen a lot of dickhead behavior....but it didn't come from me.

Today....today you have not been the dickhead. For over three years you have been gathering negative reps. But, today you are not a dickhead. Walk tall there Champ. Hold that head high.:

No, we must sling feces and tear each other's faces off in between eating each other's parasites.

But I can't make this comment about him on his rep wall:

"Online biker thinks arguing a point he disagrees with is tantamount to whining"

You poor thing. Your rights have been abrogated! Maybe you'll just simply have to give in and call one of those social justice warriors you despise so much.

I don't think every argument is whining ... but I think that's exactly what you're doing here. You abused the privilege when you had it, people responded in kind, and you lost that privilege based on people treating you the way you treated them.

If you want sympathy, you'll find it in the dictionary, between shit and syphilis.

"Minority group"? That's laughable. You're simply using that language trying to take a poke at the liberal values you perceive here. You're not part of a minority group, the members of which are being persecuted for their common views. You are an individual who treated enough people poorly enough that, when they each decided to neg you, cost you this privilege you so clearly miss.

As for the forum's principles, did you get to this part?

What's wrong with playing to the crowd? This is a forum and what is a forum made up of? People. People like to be made to smile. People like to laugh. You can make a good valid point without a wall of boring ass fucking text nobodies gonna read.

We're here to have fun not do our fucking taxes ya stupid old cunt.

If you don't like people having a smile every so often there's the door. ---->

Guess you appointed yourself bouncer, eh?

I don't think there's anything wrong with playing to a crowd, but you'll need to find those good valid points to go along with your amusing behavior first. Don't get me wrong, every so often you make a good point, but meh, broken clocks etc etc.

I would like for you to cite where on the Forum Principles, Culture, Ethics and Behavior it says there is unbounded free speech. http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...d-Behavior

All I can find is, “You have a near-total right to say whatever you want, that’s it. Near-total =/= total.

I never claimed it was unbounded free speech. The wording I used was "free speech for some, restricted speech for others". Obviously this means one group has a greater ability to speak here than another. I shouldn't have to explain this to you.

This is from my first response in this thread:

Quote: 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.

That is my claim and there is nothing contained with in it that is factually in-accurate.

This kind of bullshit is precisely why you have a rep of -51.

You don't stop even after your vacuous argument is debunked. You do this over and over and over ...
