I guess this set of mods policies =/= all policies of all previous mods, but i've seen people infracted/been banned for that before here. One example i remember pretty clearly was some guy who said a bunch of garbage up to and including calling immigration of muslim people a "dirty brown tide" or something

    I think there definitely needs to be some kind of iron fist past a point, especially for that kind of thing, because while debate is fine for most things we talk about here there's certain ideologies (white nationalism ect) that no one really benefits from debating, and can make the people who're the targets of those kind of ideologies feel uncomfortable. Even in a setting where something is so absurd for the only response to be mocking (Lets go for a hypothetical example, like "lets stop gay immigration" or something else substituting race/religion/ethnic group for "gay") that still gives a platform to ideologies that fundamentally don't deserve to be treated like they're valid viewpoints to be discussed, because you're working backwards and always in the favour of the people supporing it since it's a bad faith argument to begin with. You're legitimising it through allowing it to be treated as something worthy of being discussed, i guess

    Not to accuse anyone of fostering that mindset, that's just what i got out of that
    I don't mean to legitimize their beliefs/positions/whatever, it's just that squashing them seems to tend to yield the opposite of the desired effect. Their thought process isn't "Oh, maybe there was something wrong with what I said or did, and should think long and hard about my beliefs associated with that", it's more along the lines of "Ha! Those dirty liberals can't handle THE TRUTH and have to resort to bans or [insert some other thing here] to protect their evil little bubbles!" It just reinforces the idea to themselves that they're right really. And the more ardently one believes in these things, the harder it is to eliminate these things from society.

    lol there's an irony in that post considering how he's been going on about Brexit going through parliamentary procedure so I thought you'd appreciate it.

    I know you can see that I read your most recent post. I just wanted to let you know I'm not ignoring it... I just need to get to bed lol.

    I just feel that it sort of challenges my intellectual integrity to intentionally ignore a post that contradicts my POV, nor do I want to appear like that.
