    I'm a bit disappointed that a thread was prematurely closed, and I thought something should be said about it.

    Prematurely closed?

    No.

    Unless of course you are whining that I have not allowed you to keep posting links to sites which encourage the raping of children and other sites which encourage and provide a means to demean and insult and abuse homosexuals?

    Oh I am so intimidated by you. Really.

    Or else what?

    The only reason he wants that thread opened is because I have taken away his platform to post homophobic rants and lies. And you are complaining about this?


    Unless of course this is something else altogether. Do you have a pressing need to bash gays and lesbians? Or post your own links of sites where the raping of children is encouraged, perhaps? Is that why you want the thread reopened Chipz?


    If that is what you want, I am sure there are forums particular suited to your needs.

    I did find one forum that seems to promise what I want. They don't have much of a following, but I think I will give it a try.

    You're much too sensitive, Bells. Nowhere did I bash gays. As for the links, they were mere examples of the subject at hand--replies to what was being said.

    Good. Then go. Stop making a scene and just leave.

    That may be a relative term. If you do not support full and equal treatment of all people, regardless of race, belief, origin, gender, physical or mental ability, and sexual orientation, then you are evidently - at a minimum - generalizing to a stereotype, against the ideas held sacred in a temple we call humanity.

    This site tries to promote the human condition. I fully support that, and no matter what complaint you may have against Bells or anyone else - at least on this we should agree. Any other disagreements would seem to pale in comparison.

    You not want to find out. Just open or else.

    No.

    And if you think you can threaten me, think again.

    Hmm... Possibly Sciforums has fallen the route of most others--pretentious. There was a time when free expression was common here, and I could have said anything with no more than a counter argument. Never was I banned or had my posts edited. Part of the human condition is the freedom to express yourself, no? And I don't so much have a problem with Bells as I do with the general direction of this forum. This is the second time I've been slapped for the use of words.

    Balerion, what can I say? If I'm making a scene, it's simply because I've been around here probably longer than you, and in that time, I've seen this place steadily go down hill from its former glory. This truly has become the home of the Intolerant. Maybe that makes you happy, but I find it disturbing.

    On a side note, I think I've found a new home. I think these folks will make good company. They're so mellow. My last post for a while. Enjoy yourselves.

    The irony of your argument will not escape anyone who has been unfortunate enough to witness your hateful bigotry on this site.

    However, since you seem to believe you are free to post what you like on this site, let me remind you of this site's rules:

    You went so far, in your stereotyping and bigotry as to link a site which encourages the rape of children and tried to link it to homosexuality. And then you had the nerve to be offended when I deleted the link.

    Not only that, you also linked to sites which suggested ways to insult and demean and stereotype homosexuals in every way one could imagine. This is of course, just the tip of the iceberg of your homophobia in that thread and the sheer number of misinformation you tried to spread to justify your own warped beliefs.

    I have also been around here for a very long time, Bowser and had you pulled the stunt you pulled in that thread back then, Porf would have banned you permanently.

    You don't like the fact that I will not give you a platform to spout your homophobic bullshit on this site? Boohoo for you.

    In short, Bowser, you are free to leave. Notice that no one is begging you to stay. And that is not because of this site, but because of you. You are a hateful little bigot. And I am sure there will be sites out there where you can feel free to spout your hateful ideology and feel as though you are amongst friends.

    Bowser,

    I'm guessing that for the real-life people you most commonly interact with, the kind of casual homophobia that you display is probably the norm. In a way, you can't even imagine how others might find your views and comparisons and stereotypes deeply offensive.

    Probably you need to get out more.

    Do you agree that hate speech should be banned? Now put yourself in the shoes of a mod. Where does one draw the line?

    The test is whether that freedom is used to speak on behalf of the human condition, or against it. When we speak of "freedom of speech" we generally are referring to the natural right to speak out against abuse, not in favor of it.

    How would you rate your own words - do you equate them with hate speech? How do you think another person might answer that question? And what if that person happened to be homosexual, or otherwise sensitive to hatred faced by homosexuals?

    Most folks weigh your discomfort against the angst of innocent readers who either happen to be homosexual, or who otherwise care about equal rights. I believe the vast majority of the scientific community considers equal rights a sacred principle. If this were a fundamentalist site I'm sure you'd be given carte blanche.

    Why do you need to threaten her? Do you need a man in your life or something? I am surprised you were not banned for that.
