    Why is calling someone a retard on this board considered to be "hate speech" but having a swastika in your avatar perfectly aceptible?

    And why not?

    Why should it not be?

    It's generally tasteless and usually stupid, to be sure, but as an American, I find the display of a swatstika a hard thing to outlaw.

    I was told calling someone stupid is also hate speech but swastikas are acceptible?

    You see, OilIsMastery ( such a fucking stupid name), A swastika is instantly recognised as being antagonistic and therefore challenging one to take offense or be stronger or be looked on as a juvenile attempt to engender a vitriolic response, on the other hand, calling you a stupid dickwad is more a statement of fact.
