Recent Events

I know a fair amount of threads have been lock of late. I know there has been good reasons and I know this has angered at lease two of you. I would like to weigh in on the topic tho and get a more broad heading on things. Say my views and hopeful let some of the steam out of the pipes for you all. Calmly.

First. I know some have wished to see answers to posts made and are not pleased about their locking. Mods do a job. I can tell you until I spoke to some of the members involved in today's issues I was holding back the urge to blow up. The call to say that freedom of expression has been stifled here is simmering. I can see that. But keep in mind that should all of this really have blown up we all would have started taking swings at one another. It would have been bad.

While I do not think that stopping topics from being discussed is great it is sometimes necessary. Some topics are sacred to some and taboo to others. I think today we hit both of those headings.


To those that posted the comments. (And before anyone thinks I am pointing at any one person, I hold more than just 2 people accountable for today. Not attacking any one person) I would first like to say that sometimes you need to think about either the impact of what you say or adding context to it. Sometimes only seeing half a post or half a conversation makes things seem far worse than they are meant to be. Yes you have the freedom to voice whatever views you hold but you are accountable for those views should you voice them.


Lastly I would like to point to the mods that have had to keep this under control. Today is a day I can say I am glad I am not one of you but kind of wish I was one. Snap choices that have to be made in the face of such issues are not easy. But I really hope that those that are angry at the locking of some of these threads are able to understand it was best for all, even if a topic or two is now well and truly taboo here now.

In short. As a community we all think differently. As a whole tho we mesh rather well. Lets not make talks of leaving or the suppression of topics when deep down we all really know that the choices made today where both in made in careless moments but overall handled very well by almost all on the site.


Dice.

PS. Feel free to voice your feelings here but lets not lock this thread too.

I can understand why the mods locked the threads.

What I don't understand is why you would post a section of chat out of context and not let the other party explain the meaning.

That would be like posting "i hate dice" and leaving out the explanation of why they dislike you or if they only dislike you in certain situations.

EDIT: Please don't lock this thread unless it gets offensive/out of hand. Let us discuss things :>

Agreed, I think Trix blew this all out of proportion, especially hating on Athe like he did just for effectively saying "no country is perfect". Ironically it was Trix that first brought Hitler into the debate thread.

And Dice, I'd like to apologise for pushing you to answer the "Why so serious?" remark. I wouldn't want you to feel like I was hounding you just because I am less sensitive to the controversial joke. I respect that you have your reasons even if I am not privy to them. Sorry, pal.

We do have the freedom of speech, but we have to be responsible for what we have said, and no freedom is without restriction.

It's just like people in countries like China do have some degree of freedom of speech, but when it comes to criticizing the communist party... courts and jails await.
People in the US have more freedom, but are you allowed to leak classified files of the government? No. We all know absolute freedom only brings disorder. The difference is where the borderline is.

And as a mature adult showing some respect to others and thinking twice before speaking out do no harm.

I am wastly disapointed. I can see that non of you understand anything, have no desire to understand.
So in turn, I have no desire to be a part of this. Reading all of this makes me want to break bones, and I'm not going to subjugate myself to such company.
