Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

Who's for, who's against? VoteIf you look at some of the other threads, it is full of racists posts, some people even remarking about how all muslims should be killed. Here is an idiotic thread about muslims stinking and steorotyping muslims being violent and in this case killing (of course) innocent little puppies. Well, at this point I got sick and tired of all the racist remarks and the stereotyping and deciced to stand up and show how all of this is idiotic. I held up a mirror and showed how it is not religion per se but people commiting violent acts, and I used christianity (and yes there are orthodox, lutherans, etc. guess what islam also has its own sects as well) as an example. And now suddenly now you have a problem with it. Why did you not say anyting about other threads when people were posting about getting rid of all muslims, or making racist remarks? You get pissed of when its your own religion that's involved, right?My grandfather used to say don't argue with idiots, others may not be able to tell the difference. well that seems to be happening in this case, so I'll sign off, until the next time I get really pissed off.

QuoteOriginally posted by: gardener3Yes, that's yea, assuming we hold the same poll for all threads with stupid racist remarks.I agree, I think we are sorely lacking some mechanism where if x percent (or some other means) of people would like to see a thread deleted, then it should be deleted or least moved to a “trashcan” similar to the good folks over at n.p.

I could care less about the bible or the quran, but I do have problem when people start making racist comments and talk about killing a group of people. As I said to Cuchulainn, the comments I made about christianity were idiotic (I don't think sarcasm tanslates well over the internet). They were meant to be idiotic to show how the comments of ppauper lack logic (perhaps I should just ignore him instead) If you are referring to the comments about the bible being sexist, I was trying to point out that taking a random passage (taking it of the larger context) and giving it a narrow interpretation is clearly wrong. So I was actually arguing against the bible being sexist. I don't think my sarcasm or my point translated well. Anyhew, apologies if this was misinterpreted, it was clearly not the intention - which you would see if you read my posts carefully.

Nobody cares for everyhting they read, we all have our own opinions, but is forum 'natural selection' just censorship? Maybe I'm just concerned b/c I'd probably be the first off the island
