That's rich coming from someone who called people far worse things in that thread.
Shall I bring up some quotes?
Feel free to do so, have I denied it?
Far from it. I'll admit that myself, much like many other people have been prone to the old she-devil known as hate, but regardless, I don't recall
deliberately calling ANYONE stupid in all my time here on ATS. Feel free to prove me wrong on that one.
However, the true cake maker is the fact that I am also not one that I going around complaining about hate when I am a de facto contributor to the
very such thing. Sorry if the truth is too much to swallow.
I've taken a few moments to skim what some people "want" in accordance with Oz's OP, and, well, it is pretty easy to see who the collectivists are
"I want this."
"I want to get rid of this."
"I'm tired of seeing this, so get rid of this."
"I would appreciate not have to deal with this."
I'm an age old fan of the "if you don't like it than ignore it" methodology. It is really quite simple. If you see something that you don't want
anything to do with - then simple pretend that it doesn't exist.
What is even more fantastic is that the hosts of these forums were kind enough to implement an ignore feature, so if you feel that a certain user is a
notorious contributor of such topics you want no part of, YOU CAN ELIMINATE THEM.
This is what Democracy has taught us children. By disabling people from doing anything whatsoever, you eliminate the possibility that someone might be
offended or wronged by such things. What does it matter that you are bound by endless regulation and rules, so long as you are saying what everyone
WANTS to here.
Forget about truth or *gasp* the questioning of certain well known "facts" because everyone knows that the topics listed in the OP, as well as some
of the various facets listed by others in this topic, are so cut and dry that they no longer deserve any discussion. In fact, it should be stated in
the T&C that the following subjects are NO LONGER
allowed to be debated on ATS, as well as the reasons for doing so:
Debates of the Existence of God
- Because we all know that The Holy Bible is God's word, and therefore it is all true. Therefore, no further
discussion is necessary.
Anything Questioning Past Events
- Because every event portrayed to us in history books, such as the JFK assassination, the sinking of the
Lusitania, the Holocaust, and 9/11, is portrayed with the utmost facts and no political or patriotic bias.
Any Country Superiority
- Because everyone already knows that Oz is the greatest country on Earth, with the world's smartest and most
enlightened countrymen - as it is so eloquently reminded of us by everyone of it's citizens.
Any Attacks on Communism
- Because individualism is a sin and what I say goes.
Any Attacks on Israel or Jews
- Because Israel is God's country and they have never done any wrong. The Jews are completely honest with every
piece of their history and hold themselves to be superior to nobody, so we should do the same.
Anything Targeting a Non-Caucasian
- Because anything said against someone of another skin color or nationality is racist, even if it does not
have anything to do with the aforementioned traits. The only reason you dislike them is because of their skin color, not because they were directly
attributed to the deaths of thousands of people, committed various crimes, or lied to a representative populace. Racism is bad folks, especially when
you don't know you are even doing it.
Non-medical Professional Advice
- Because the FDA doesn't lie and they are required to report and keep track of every side effect or dangerous
piece of medicine that is sold in this country. They are never wrong and they never lie.
Attacks on Law Enforcement
- Because there is no such thing as a crooked cop or biased security personnel. All law enforcement is sword to
uphold justice and provide a helping hand. They are in no way, shape, or form biased or working hard to enforce petty laws in order to reach a
Anything Against Anything Else
- Because everything that I know is true, and anything that has been determined in the past has been determined
for a reason. Historical information as well as information that has been provided by news outlets is known to be 100% factual and is no longer
necessary to be debated.
Well that about covers it. I think we should get this show on the road. Mods, site overlords, can't wait for the new T&C. That way, everyone is happy
in a world of peace and no-think.
But don't worry, I'm sure if ATS decides to ever follow the route of anti-free speech in every form as the OP infers, there will be another forum
waiting in the wood works. Until then, I will just continue to practice it here, where with any hope, I don't have to worry about butt hurting a few
posters who don't want to have their day ruined by having to see something outside of their control take place. Sucks when we all can't be God's
At least the mods are chosen widely, that is one plus.
Honestly... some of you are silly, SILLY people.
