Poll: Should "racism" be a valid excuse for banning?
    #2164834 - 12/06/03 07:18 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Due to Rono's recent threat of banning me due to racism, and my lack of ability to find any rule relating to said issue in the post that HE made ascribing the rules, I think I'll turn to a more democratic method. This is my first time ever putting up a poll, so if it isn't set up properly, I apologize in advance.

Do you think that the use of racial stereotypes (For example, refering to Mexicans and Negros as "Juan and Tyrone") is a valid reason for a ban? This does not mean to include flaming using racial slurs (For example, "you stupid ", mearly using a racial stereotype.

METHOD=POST ACTION="http://www.shroomery.org/forums/dopoll.php"> TYPE=HIDDEN NAME="pollname" VALUE="1070756339enimatpyrt">

Should Racism Be a Valid Excuse for a Ban?
type="radio" name="option" value="1" />Yes.
type="radio" name="option" value="2" />No.
TYPE=Submit NAME=Submit VALUE="Submit vote" class="buttons">

Also, rono, if you'd like to finally address my question and give us a working definition of "racism", with your assurance that you'll warn and ban ANYONE who violates it against ANY group of people, this would be an excellent place to do so. Thanks.

People that say "yes" to this are basically saying that freedom of speech should only include what they want it to. If you are one of those that rally against the PATRIOT act as being a tool to control the people that disagree with the establishments opinion, you really can only vote "no" for this. Thanks.

It might would have been better if this thread were about wether or not racism was an excuse for censorship.


In a messageboard situation, THat could be considered trolling, or baiting. On another messageboard, it might be trolling/baiting to ask if Jesus was black.

Why?...Are you planning on spouting more racism despite being warned not to? Is it really necessary for me to make more forum rules? I only made two rules to keep it simple, under the assumption that those that post here would have enough common sense and intelligence that Racism wouldn't come into play...apparently I was wrong.

I would be more than happy to create a specific list of rules for this forum that both mods agree on...we have been extremely tolerant of alot of stuff that has no business in this forum...if you want to force us to review the only 2 rules of the forum...fine, we can always add more...

If he wants to be racist, let him be racist. If that's what he believes in, I see no reason to censor it. The only damage that he'll do is to himself by making everyone realize what an ignorant bigot he is.

I think if he should be banned for anything, it should be for puppetry.

I think free speech should reign. People should say whatever they
want to as long as it is not overly insulting to other forum members.

As an aside...would racism against white people be punished as
harshly as racism against minorities in this forum?

People have the right not to be descriminated against in a public forum.. Referring to any race by racial slur's will get you absolutley nowhere.. People have names and calling by a made up a name based on a streotype is negligent.. I think that apply's to evrything including political orientation which I tend to see alot of here.. It makes me sick..

If he was referring to any members here with racial slurs, that'd be one thing, but he's just making generally racist comments.

After reading Baby Hitler's post about banning emmigration I've changed my mind.. That post makes racial slur's look like nothing.. Just the fact that he can name himslef after a murderous dictator an then basicaly preach the same shit make's me wonder how the hell he get's to be a moderator..

What an angry lil' fella.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

You might be surprized but racism and bigotry is generally not looked upon to be one of the more positve human virtues in this day and age..I have enough friends that have Immigrated to defend their honour when people are talking absolute bullshit trash about them and likeneing them to be pathetic and less capable of managing their destiny then someone who just happened to be born in America..
