Obviously, calling any group of people "dogshit" based solely on their skin color or religion or other irrelevant characteristic is despicable.

Unless you are a Conservative of course...

I support that action.  If Reb didn't want rascist pricks here, would any of us say anything about him banning them?

Unless they hate the joooooooos? Oh wait, that was TOS. ;)

173. That's because it's OK to call evangelicals "dogshit" on DU.

Prove to me it isn't.

I thoroughly detest this "new" policy and will probably vote with my feet, purely as a matter of principle, because I KNOW it'll be applied unfairly -- it already has, in this very series of threads. It is a power that should never be given. I don't care WHO "owns" the internet it doesn't give them the "right" to spy on their own user data without a damn good reason such as a direct site violation.

OR we could have a link on every page: "I am a Republican" click and you get banned. It's a clickable option right?

I RUN a public forum, albeit small -- and have participated in
neighborhood BBSes facing these issues time and again, though
they never solved them in this fashion.

Maybe DU should have a Christian haters forum while we're at it,
since people are more likely to get threads locked DEFENDING religion
and religious Democrats.

It's so helpful to have a legalistic approach of "it's a private site not a public forum and you are a guest (so I can shoot you if you don't leave when I ask)" instead of relying on liberal discourse that is the main alternative to that old approach to discourse.

the rebellion continues . . . maybe Gonad should have just deleted the damn poll.

Sort of O/T, but I find the term "evangelicals" to be silly.  Mostly because it is used in the same contemptuous tone that "the Religious Right" is used.  Sounds like the liberals found a new label for the same old thing (kinda like "progressive").

I believe the poll thread that started this drama thread used the term "christians".
