    No one said there's a list of people about to get kicked out.

    You said people like Dinner post racist shit and wreck threads.

    I don't think it's too much too ask for you to identify which other posters are like Dinner. Should be real easy to show the evidence of such a thing.

    You see a pattern has formed among you leftists in society at large that everyone on the right is a racist. We see that here on this board where the left on the board is constantly attacking the right on the board as racist.

    So when we see race baiting against board members on the right is @Bickendan going to do something about it or just call it trolling?

    8. In General, Don't Be A Complete Asshole.
    At WordForge, we value free expression; more so than most other sites. However, the aim here is to have open debates, and fun. The aim is not to figure out a way to break the site or its community beyond repair. Free speech is part of a triad of what we value, and depends on its other two parts: including individual members, and overall community. If your use of free speech interferes with either of the other parts, there will be consequences, including but not limited to anything from warnings to temporary or even permanent bans. We trust our staff to make that call. If you feel that you do not know how to avoid being a complete asshole without a set of detailed instructions, this might not be the right site for you.

    Are you just trying to rules lawyer for the sake of rules law debating? There still isn't a complete list of detailed instructions, there's just a clarification that's basically yes this might have slid in the past but it will be considered going forward. No loopholes are being opened or anything like that.

    No. Not rules lawyer stuff.

    Really want to know if this is going to be applied to people like Diacanu and Amaris or is the race baiting when they do it just going to be written off as trolling.

    Honestly, if this is a concern of yours I suggest you make use of the "report post" function. You'll get better results if you include a well-reasoned argument, rather than an offhand comment or demand for immediate action.

    Whose demanding anything?
    I haven’t reported anything. I can’t even remember the last time I even bothered to repost a post. Is there a way to look it up?

    Just thought it might be an interesting way to put the new rule to the test, for anyone so inclined. :?:

    so "people acting like Dinner" would include Tererun? I'm not a math wizard but Tererun has made racist comments about whites (mostly male conservative whites of course) both in general and to specific individuals countless times. Granted she's white so I guess that's a grey area (HA!) and she's got it that way, but still.....let's call a spade a spade here. :shrug:

    It's a fine rule, and as long as people like @Diacanu and @Amaris have no say in the enforcement of it, it should be ok

    Little old me? Why would you ever have to worry about that?

    It's like a mini version of the impeachment proceedings. First thing you do when engaging in illicit activity is accuse the people trying to get you to stop engaging in that same activity.

    You're just out of touch with what many people have to deal with day in and day out, and your privilege prevents you from learning.

    That doesn't make you any less out of touch. A CEO can have ten thousand employees spread all around the world, and he can visit each location, and still not understand anything about them or their culture. Right now, though, you're on Wordforge, and your schtick is old. Your jokes are stale and bitter. You gaslight people, and you dismiss them because you don't understand where they're coming from, like you do me. You're a bully. Not a troll, not a joker, a bully. It's all you have left, and you don't like it when I call you on it. You're the Bill Maher of Wordforge, and you're boring.

    Not on everyone, but I can tell you firsthand about not having enough food, no home, ignoring worsening medical conditions because you can't afford treatment, and hoping to god you can scrounge enough money together to pay for 30 days of insulin. Moreso, I talk to people who have been in this position. We get together and try to lift people out of their problems. See, something you don't understand, nor Garak, is that while I don't get to really go anywhere, the internet is a powerful tool which gives me the ability to act on ways to protect others from that same fate. I have made connections all around the world, and while it would be so much better if I could physically act in every one of those situations, I have to use what tools I have. You can mock it all you want, but I know better than to punch down at the people who hold everything in their hands, especially should they realize the kind of power they actually possess.

    Interestingly enough, this comes back around to the thread topic: don't fuck with people who have been oppressed, don't pretend you're just as oppressed, because people have long memories, and the internet never forgets. That is why the racism needs to stop.

    so because I've never been as oppressed or destitute as the people you are trying to help I need to keep my mouth shut on all subjects because I am an evil white racist by default - got it!

    No, but then you've never had difficulty missing what people said in favor of what you assume they said. So, you know, whatever works for you.
