It's simple really: Don't make personal attacks, don't paint entire Races, Religions, Cultures with a broad stroke in an insulting manner, and leave politics out of tragedy.

I don't know anything about bannings but locking the thread was the correct move. When people can't be respectful they need to be quiet. It is the few who break the rules that ruin the conversation for the rest of us.

Hey, at least I don't deny that bannings and lockings and deletions happen.

If only because the proof is about as hard to hide as public rape is.

True.




The backlash against reddit for them doing the opposite, though, is a maelstrom of fury that makes the Fappening look like a walk in the park.

Guess it was not a good idea to make a statement coming from experience. Croatian schools suck regarding foreign literature.

Ahh sweet sweet victory, thy name is Nalaniel's love. In blissful repose I savour the moment, this fleeting and fulfilling joy.

As a side note I just dug out my school uniform, I still fit it perfectly. And looking at my year book I realised I look the same age I did when I graduated high school...ten years ago. Think I might for shit and giggles go wander the hallways and see how long it takes for them to realise I am not an active student.

Morale was deteriorating and it was all Yossarian's fault. The country was in peril; he was jeopardizing his traditional rights of freedom and independence by daring to exercise them. - Catch 22

My school substituted Catch 22 for all of those other books. It followed no chronological order, making reading it as messed up as the story.

You know, it's one thing to complain vociferously about how things are done on a forum. It's another thing to stick around while doing so. There are other forums, and there are even free forum utilities out there to create your own. Go. Go and be free. This "Oceania" allows any and all to come and go as they please with or without notice or cause.

Kind of hard to feel oppressed when things are that way.

He's upset because they locked the other Orlando-shooter threads after they turned into Trump-supporter rhetoric about evil Muslims and gun-owners.

If you can't read Orwell's "1984", at least rent the John Hurt movie.

No. It was locked because of multiple rules violations and aggressive flouting of moderators' instructions to reel things back, including posts with content such as this:


Fuck ya'll Muslim loving race traitors. You are the problem and you will be the end of us all. They dont even need military might with ya'll. I feel sorry for your children.

It's amusing that individuals who attempt to ban others for the crime of providing factual refutation of their views should feel so entitled to a community where they hold the minority opinion.


And then try to DARVO and say "Yes, yes, go and build another community, just leave me everything that everyone else has worked hard to build!"



Funny how they don't ever seem to take the advice that they are so quick to dispense.
