Lies. My post in this thread was my first on the subject. Only MPTrooper actually commented on it.
He did not post any hate speech or inflamatory propaganda.
Yet your question was, "Why hasn't he been removed?"
Lies. My question was "[W]hy is the Klansman's profile still intact?"
You are mostly right on this score...my mistake...My apologies for the misquote.
(Your characterization of my oversight as "lies" implies it was done a'purpose, though, which is dishonest, as I think you well realize I have no gain in "smearing you", or whatever...
So they were mitaken impressions
, not "lies".)
I wrote:The passage you quoted by this site's founder does not say that people who ascribe to disagreeable beliefs are unwelcome, but merely that their posts will be removed if those particular ones are offensive without any redeeming virtue.
ados wrote:Every post the account makes is directly linked to the profile (although I admit I was hasty in that I went by what MPT said before checking to see if the site was still up, although for all I know it could be a server problem and it will be up tomorrow). The profile can be edited without damaging any of the content of his posts.
So?...Is anyone forcing you to click the link in the profile?
If you do click the link, are you so impressionable that you must believe what is written there?
Or are you just saying that you believe the rest of us are?(And need protection from our own weakness?)
I wrote:Check your head, brother....Censorship in the name of PC is even more objectionable than censorship for blatant fascist logic, because the people who are doing the editing believe themselves righteous beyond question...At least fascists are obvious people-users, therefore the censorship retains its honest stink.
ados wrote:"Censorship in the name of PC" is saying we can't call black people "water buffalo" when they're in large, noisy groups in the early hours of the morning. The KKK's sole, one-and-only purpose is, as I said, to spread fear and hatred of minorities. The difference is between calling someone a nigger because they're black and calling for someone's expulsion from the country, if not death, because they're black.
Once again, I submit that if someone is spouting such idiocy, the only sane thing is to let them have their say publicly, and allow the ridicule and mockery of their weak ideas to be likewise visible...People are smart enough to see what is wrong with racist dogma.
By censoring it, you only color it with an aura of power it does not deserve.
ados wrote:At any rate, on this site Bobby Henderson's edicts are beyond question because this is his website. He hasn't actually commented on this specific issue, but we could email him if you like.
This sounds unnecesarily confrontational and juvenile, so I will refrain from responding to it.

Fixed your typo.
An oft-seen-on-the-board passive-aggressive move.(the "translation" of someone else's words in a snarky kinda way.)
To my eyes, a pretty transparent display of anger. I will take this anger as an admission that you realize that you were wrong in thinking that admins ahould have banned him/edited his profile/or whatever other step you feel they were lax in, prompting you to post in this thread.
