It seems that you might already have left, but I will address this now, anyway.Beatriki wrote:Raw or not, these are homophobic insults. And I'm not leaving because someone has a different opinion, I'm leaving because human rights are being violated, and because his message hasn't been deleted. So, what happens here, insults are permitted if they are addressed to homosexuals?? What kind of rules are these??
First, I have only just seen how this thread has turned out. There are not many moderators on this forum, and half of them seem to have disappeared into the ether. The rest of us do not spend 24 hours a day glued to the screen watching out for violations.
Second, while I find Kenny's comments unnecessary, inflammatory, derogatory, rude, crude, controversial, unreasonable, insulting, ignorant, and a whole host of other adjectives, I would point out that he has not actually breached any of the rules of this forum. He might have breached common decency, but unfortunately there is no sanction against that here. While on the one hand I would dearly love to delete his comments, I see no reason to, and having been lambasted in the past for censoring when no censoring took place, I dread to think what will happen if I actually *did* delete his posts. Being a moderator is a thankless job, but we do try to do the job within parameters.
Third, I hope you have not left this forum for good. It has been a brighter place for your presence. I have found it much easier just to ignore the barbarians.
I will be more than happy to delete the posts (and all those that follow it) if everyone requests it. Until that time, I'm afraid the muck has to stay with the gold.
