David has been banned for insulting personal attributes of another member. Mocking the personal attributes of a member, however veiled and witty, is not allowed.

I really don't like having to ban members for such mundane behavior. However since this has bothered Mau, and since David has been warned about this behavior before, he has been banned for a week.

As Eagle said, this is petty. Which is why he's only been given a week ban.

We can't allow people to make personal attacks in every post. What are we, an internet article comment section?

Algren has been banned for 1 week due to vile language and hateful comments.

What was his vile language? Was it more vile than:

Mau wrote:
SERIOUSLY? I'm ok with everyone but that nigger. ugh.


?

What Mau said was so vile...it still sends shivers down my spine.

It was abiout equal, the difference was that it was not the first (or even second) time Algren has done that.

I presume Algren is perceived as having violated the fourth rule (or commandment) of the forum as outlined in the other thread. It is interesting, though: did he ever call an African American member of the forum the word in question directly? If he did, I cannot remember it, and a search for "nigger" indicates he uses it in ways such as this:

Algren wrote:
The new trend is to not say "nigger".

It's [one] of my favourite words. I say it most days.


I believe this should be protected rather than punished considering Eagle's statement below:

Eagle wrote:
Similarly, profanity is an expression of oneself, and so long as that expression is not hostile to another, it is acceptable on this forum.


Is there a secret list of words which cannot be used in any way on this forum despite the overall feigning of a belief in freedom of speech?

Attica! Attica!

No, mainly it is common sense and using what you'd also say in real life without causing an outrage from the general population. If anyone is uncomfortable with this, there is always the "Sign Out" button.

It is cool. Just lose the bullshit freedom-of-speech-unless-directly-hostile rule and tell us what we can and cannot say. Be real, man.

I would hate to quote from Huckleberry Finn one day and find myself banned because Twain uses words at which Arthur might blush.

No. Just try to act like a civilized person. People take too many liberties on the internet as it is. It's not "PRETEND WORLD" where you can do anything you want.

"Agitators are a set of interfering, meddling people who come down to some perfectly contented class of the community and sow the seeds of discontent amongst them. That is the reason why agitators are so absolutely necessary. Without them, in our incomplete state, there would be no advance towards civilisation."

Post Re: Disciplined Members
David,

I want members to feel that they are free to express themselves here, and the rules reflect that. With regards to Algren, it wasn't a specific post, rather the straw that broke the camel's back. The freedom that I want users to have is a freedom that allows them to discuss their beliefs. If Algren wishes to have an articulate discussion about racism, homosexuality, and his feelings on each, he's welcome to do so. The issue with his post, and with Mau's, is that they're filled with hateful words, and hateful intent.

For some members browsing the forums, reading those hateful words can lead to them feeling personally attacked, even when the words are not directed at them, and that type of behavior is against our policies. Lecter and I are only so active, if you see these types of posts consistently from a member, please drop one of us a line to make sure we're aware.

As for Mau, I'll be sending him a PM shortly with a warning for his comments. He really should be banned, a lesser track record is a poor excuse, but it's what I'm going with for now.

Karl

Start by stopping saying 'imma'. That hurts my eyes more than those other words.

The forum is a cruel tundra without Algren. FREE ALGREN AND ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS.
