Where is the line on censorship?
« on: May 05, 2009, 10:16:45 pm »
I've been thinking about it, and the equation of a group, to a criminal behavior, is biased, but it also sets up a precedent for pointless accusations.

So bassically I am putting this out there.

Lets assume the following premise. Something isn't politically correct, if its wrong to say about any group. So with that premise in mind.

White ____ robs bank

Rich ___ embezzles money

Retarded ___ exposes himself in public

Are these statements inappropriate, and should they be subject to moderation on this forum. What do you think and why?

As of right now, I am divided on this matter.

Actually by the rules of PC, no matter what, the first one is fine. I understand that this is a PC forum with PC rules, and I can respect them.

If I can do it, anyone can do it.

In fact, I think you erred when you sided with me in the conflict with Sandy. If you read the terms of service, they clearly don't want anything "hateful" and even mentioning that a member of a protected minority could do something heinous is clearly hateful.

On my forum, everyone including Nazi's are protected minorities.

That's insane. Then everything and anything is censored. Nothing and nobody can be spoken against; we can have a nice little Lollipop Land of everyone politely declining to point out anything negative about anything. Degeneracy follows.

No, I despise the immunity blanket and I don't want one, ever. If there are flaws and shortcomings, I invite any attack. If the attack is Reason-founded, I welcome it to hone and revise my views. If it is not, I welcome it to strengthen them. And as far as I know I'm the only Nazi here.
