It is Kochzucher!
“Got it. You think everyone is obligated to debate anyone who asks. You know that's nuts, right? Do you think the people opposing those 40 speakers don't have the right to free speech? You are either sadly ignorant of what free speech means, oryou're just another whiny RWNJ. I suspect both.”
“You don't understand what the right to free speech means. Look it up, and then try again if you aren't too embarrassed by what you already posted.”
“Nobody denied anybody's free speech in the situation you are whining about. You would understand that if you found what our right to free speech includes.”
All these are post of you defending someone who’d rather rip Ben Shapiro’s arm out of his socket, than debate him, vs giving him a platform....you’re for this loony professors free speech (calling a Jewish anti alt right person, a white supremacist, and a Harvard law degree a fake degree...here you’re all for free speech), but not everyone else’s. You pick and choose which free speech is acceptable, so what’s changed?
I have nothing but respect for discussion of purple dildos. I'll fight anyone who says differently. As far as calling that poster a twat, she/he was being a bit of a twat.
THere's really only about 3 filtered words. And I think everyone knows at least 2 of them. Writing a filter for this is complex and we're at the mercy of Xenoforo Software to do it for us. Anyone with programming knowledge can bypass a filter with BBCode or other methods that are supported. And the VARIATIONS on the cheats to get around a filter are a huge number of possibilities. VOLUMES of coder forum threads on writing that stuff.
SO -- ends up Moderation is the filter. And our only emphasis is in the upstairs forums, not the Taunting Forums.
We may delete posts, edit them or warn if it's chronic.
Really though, who cares? Stick and stones . . . you know the rest.
It's really quite arbitrary. Why not just admit that?
What's arbitrary? We don't control content if it's in the RIGHT forum and the Right thread. The only reason there are ANY filtered words is that THOSE words are associated with racism or misogyny and would be over-used by some. Other than that -- If you're respecting the topic and your post is more substance than vile crap -- we probably don't even read "the vile crap".
So -- what's arbitrary?
Who makes the decision that one "bad word" is worse than another "bad word?" If you are going to allow bad words, then allow bad words . . . or don't allow bad words. A bad word that may be not offensive to YOU, might be to someone else. Let's use "bastard" for example. Maybe a bastard is insulted if you call him a bastard?
See my post #39.
