Some of your mods are quite perceptive and understand where I'm coming from in my personality and my values and my Christianity quite well. And not only the seemingly very few Christian mods seem to understand me well.

Others seem to have absolutely NO CLUE about me and persistently BLACKWASH me up one side and down the other . . . SEEMINGLY looking for whatever excuse they can to delete a post or somehow otherwise hinder my postings of my perspectives and values.


Forgive me for pointing this out, but the staff are not here to pander to your personal ego.

The board staff are here to make sure the sites T&C are enforced.

Its not a question of "you"

Its a question of the T&C.

I rather strongly disagree.

WHEN [color=CCCCFF]SO MUCH DECISIVE, HEAVY DECISIONS AND ACTIONS

HANG ON

[color=FF0000]PERCEIVED INTENT

THEN

IT IS

about me and my personhood, attitudes, tones, demeanor etc. my over all presentation of myself in my writing on ATS.

Pretending otherwise

WHILE ACTING exactly demonstrating that it IS inclined to be about personal perceptions about personhood

is disingenuous at best.

Finally...tired of all the hated being spewed on here as of late. You do realize that a lot of conservatives will be banned or will just leave.

Im so glad you are cleaning house here. It will be a pleasure to be able to read posts from people who inspire thought, instead of reading posts from people spewing hate and stupidity and wondering why Im still a memeber of ATS. But I would hate to miss a post from JeanPaul or fail to get the news before it makes the news. Again, thank you.

Actually, your words were NOT all that clear to me.

I got the emotional tonal WHAM of your words but

any intellectual understanding of the word content seems rather mystifying to me.

Conservatives? Your own recent thread regarding minoritites has been deleted. Being a liberal doesn't ensure you will not be eventually banned here or targeted for being 'hateful'.

All I have to say is. It worked.

Actually about to ask why it was deleted...because I was against racism and such not for it. I was not being hateful just asking a question and giving examples that could be research and validated.

Now, whereever you stand on the issue, from a more conservative standpoint the NYT article is a good example of MSM left-wing bias. And like it or not, the preponderant political stance on ATS is also left-wing. Conservatives do not get a fair hearing here. Christians are regularly attacked, and Muslims are apologized for. Now, so I don't get accused of bias myself, I will say that extreme fundamentalist Christianity is simply not "my cup of tea" and leave it at that, But I certainly sympathize with the way they are treated here. They are under constant attack.


THX

ABSOLUTELY INDEED.

It's amazing that it took this many pages for someone to speak of the elephant always in the room on every thread.

I don't think there are a LOT of conservatives on here.

It's fascinating how

in the name of

TOLERANCE

the intolerance is escalating.

There have definitely been some posters that let their racism and hatred shine through, but there has been an equal surge in people charging others with racism where there is none. Saying someone is a racist is a pretty serious accusation and starts just as many fights.

Most important being racist will always hurt your argument, and always hurt the cause. I personally have been on both sides of this argument (the Zimmerman/Martin case) and at first I was very vocal in my opinion that Zimmerman was guilty. Lately evidence has come to light and changed my opinion. I share a race with neither of the men as neither are white, have supported both, yet people have still implied I was racist just because I argued on behalf of Zimmerman. In my opinion the evidence speaks for itself and people's opinions will fall in line with what it suggests (even if it changes again and shows Zimmerman is guilty - even though it shows the opposite now). Being racist just makes people opposed to whatever you are supporting by association.

Remember you represent your ideas. If you are racist and then someone goes through your post or sees a banner under your post and it has a politician you support they will reject everything about you. So I find it really annoying to see people with Ron Paul banners saying racially insensitive things (even though I haven't seen any being truly racist),

I couldn't agree more.
This type of thing doesn't belong in the ATS community.

ABSOLUTELY INDEED.

And this sort of thing is CHRONIC hereon. I've accepted it as a fact of life on ATS.

However, WHEN the double standard gets REALLY EXTREME . . . as it does with some frequency

it gets REALLY DISCOURAGING.

Thanks for speaking truth.

One would think that THE TRUTH would be more popular on a site dedicated to denying ignorance.

Benevolent (or otherwise) dictatorship is definitely your right as site owner. I just hope you don't practice equivalency like the media, which treats ignorance with the same respect as informed knowledge and then promotes conflict between the two instead of calling out the idiot. One thousand learned, non-politically aligned scientists can provide years of evidence and peer-reviewed material to assert the existence of man made global warming. Meanwhile a gaggle of politically motivated, non-scientist pundits and politicians rant about it being a lie, often bringing out their bibles and few crackpots as proofs for their "side." The press treats them with equal respect. It is a big problem in our society, this inability and/or unwillingness to distinguous fact from opinion and to call out ignorance when encountered.

Ignorance and dogma expressed vehemently as fact and used to smear or blame should be accorded no respect.

My language skills have consistently been the highest rated in all my English classes 1-14.

My IQ is above genius.

However, given my particular unique constructions on reality . . .

I don't do "THREATENING-MYSTIFYING-CRYPTIC" very well at all.

Actually, I don't do most types of cryptic well in some contexts. I can think of too many possible meanings and have too hard a time distinguishing which is the most probable.


Just one of my weaknesses.

Given that you are evidently not planning to elaborate,

I'll just assume that no meaningful communication will transpire any further.

Just a side note but even this thread perfectly highlights the fact that anything can be argued and all too often quality threads and posts are diluted with those who simply want to argue. Hopefully the new TOS covers this kind of blight as well. I know we all love a good debate, but to what end? Should there not be a basis for debate other than the "look at me, I can formulate and opinion" fodder simply hurled to spurr argument for the sake of argument alone?

Just my two...

With all the racism, bigotry, hate speech and the like floating around ATS, we don't have to worry about the "divide and conquer" strategy of TPTB. We are doing it to ourselves.

Seeing the comments in this thread makes a person sit back and say 'wow'. Just... 'wow'.

This is why I do not own a website.

Truth

Now that's an interesting concept as everyone has their own idea and approach as to what truth is. Some say that the "truth will set you free".

Albert Einstein said: "In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same. Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."

Buddha said: "In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves."

Winston Churchill said: "Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened."

Johnny Anonymous says: "The truth of the matter is, I'm leery of anyone that claims to have or know the truth of the matter".

Yep.. if you can't beat an argument, you can always call the person arguing a racist I guess.
It's a shame. I used to be vehemently liberal. As I have moved to a more libertarian point of view I see that the new left is more like the old right. My liberal friends on facebook seem so ignorant and blind to me. They don't realize they are liberals calling for the blood of a man in this case and trusting the media because the victim was black.


The old left used to fight for the truth especially if it was the unpopular point of view. Now they will buy right into the MSM and they are trying to fight the same fight as the liberals of the 60's, but that fight is pretty much over. They are the ones that are holding onto it. Racism exists, but it is not at the default position in my opinion. It is no longer publicly acceptable and that is all that needed to change really, because racism will never go away it is not possible. If you deleted it it will spring back up spontaneously.
