And am sorry Muffs is gone, I liked him. I was only trying to show him that words hurt specific people, I wasn't expecting all that baggage to come up and I wasn't expecting him to leave the building before the thing played out.

-_-

Oh, lol. You're a he? You have a female avatar. Or did I get something else wrong?

Yeah, Logica is a guy... I made the same mistake with you. For a few days, I thought you were a guy based on your username.

Yep, you're not the first and won't be the last I think. Smile

RE: Racism on this forum
I wasn't equating fuck to nigger but we can if you like.

I mean just because you might not be offended were someone to call you a stupid fuckface, doesn't mean that rule will apply to all.

It's a matter of offence isn't it?

Like I said, different words hurt different people. Some words may only hurt one person, some may hurt millions.

Rofl! What is it that everyone always yells ban? Do I suggest banning? I don't, you know. Yet the conversations never get beyond banning. This forum suffers from banophobia.

And the above may rival the Jabberwocky (or whatever that was called) but I hardly think anyone is offended lol.

Besides I once knew a Cynthia whom I disliked strongly. Curse her all you like, please.

RE: Racism on this forum
I apologize for not reading all 22 pages of this thread. I made it through the first 12 and thought I had the gist of it. Hopefully I'm not overly repetitive here.

Anyway, I too have noticed some of the racism in this forum. Ghost had pointed it out at one point. It's not one person and it's not one thread. Some of it was an attempt to be funny but the argument that meaning to be funny is a valid excuse for slurs is, at least in my opinion, wrong. The original complaint that started this thread was, at least in my humble opinion, absolutely valid. His proposed solution was, also in my humble opinion, absolutely wrong. Censorship and the suppression of ideas through force or the delete key is never the right approach. When you hide from ideas you don't like, you only empower them and give them strength. The way you combat stupidity, racism, hate, intolerance, etc., is by highlight it for what it is and show those people to the community in all their ignorant glory. This is an intelligent group of people and able to discern who makes a reasoned argument and who is just an idiot trying to get a rise out of people.

Not that he needs my endorsement, but I am 100% in agreement with how Stark has chosen to manage these issues. You're never going to please everyone but pleasing everyone is not a requirement. I think it's far more important that people have the ability to speak, or write in this instance, their mind than to have someone grant themselves the power to decide what is appropriate or inappropriate speech. And, if someone says something that offends you, ignore them. Or their statement. Or fight back. All of those are within your rights. What is not in your rights is to live in a bubble and not be offended.

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
