That's just it. I'm 100% serious. Do we ignore someone showing suicidal tendencies and call it silly? One person sending a u2u to a mod is like an average Joe walking into congress expecting to be heard. I was hoping to gain some support in this thread in order to add some weight to the issue presented. Now I expect this thread to be deleted, with the issue swept under the rug. Isn't that what all governing bodies do when an issue isn't held up to public scrutiny?
Hey, you raise good questions. If an alcoholic is known for driving drunk, for his own safety as well as for others, should he be banned from drinking establishments or from buying booze? I don't know. But if so, this doesn't mean he should be banned from going to the cinema. See what I mean?
As for my mood saying 'slap you silly' I would actually feel a lot safer with someone venting their anger with words, than with someone appearing calm but expressing disorganized thoughts. Wouldn't you?

And who would make the decision? Personally I think fundamentalist christians and members of the GOP are mentally ill, but I would not recommend banning them. Because if you don't believe in free speech for everyone, you don't believe in free speech. Yes, the individual you are talking about was a member; yes he did show classic signs of disorganized and delusional thoughts; but who are we to judge? I'm wrapping up my Master's in Psychology and would not want to consider judging a person's mental health solely through posts on the internet.
