Redwhine should have gotten a formal warning for that comment. And Samsa should not have been suspended for a year for his.

I think the mods are doody heads. Let the drama begin.
Redwhine got told off for his comment about you in the feedback thread.
Bout time. Redwhine is a the biggest troll in the feedback forum. I have absolutely no idea how he is allowed to get away with his shit. (Well, I have one idea... former Mod status on rdf).

What comment was that?

Eh, if it wasn't that comment then they'd just find another to warn me for to get rid of me. They were pissed off that they weren't allowed to permaban me a while back so they've just been racking up bullshit warnings and advice so they can try to make it look justified. If you look at the thread where I got my warning and see some of the comments that went without warning, it's amazing that they somehow singled mine out. There were like 3-4 pages of derail where Cito just kept bringing up posts I'd made elsewhere on the forum and criticising me for them despite having no relevance to the topic.

How come I didn't get that privilege?

Samsa, I think your green vagoo was creeping them out too much.
What I've found with a few discussions I've had lately is this self-satisfaction that people express with their proffessed open mindedness. In realty it ammounts to wilful ignorance and intellectual cowardice as they are choosing to not form any sort of opinion on a particular topic. Basically "I don't know and I'm not going to look at any evidence because I'm quite happy on this fence."

Well that's just plain old sexism being grossed out by a moldy vagina.

Ha join the club, they couldn't ban me for rules violations so they started to almost make stuff up (not wanting Muslims immigrants was now racist). Finally perm banned me with only 4 warmings, and I was about to lose two of them :hehe:
A rational skeptic should be able to discuss and debate anything, no matter how much they may personally disagree with that point of view. Discussing a subject is not agreeing with it, but understanding it.

Nah, they didn't need to make stuff up. They can ban anyone for any reason, and they can certainly ban you if they decide you're a racist troll.

Well, now Jews are considered a separate racial identity. Silly me, I thought that was a religious grouping.http://www.rationalskepticism.org/news- ... l#p2057966

When a religious groups encourages strict endogamy, it soon becomes a racial identity too.

Unlike muslims that encourage marriage with atheists or evangelical christians, you mean?

Muslims are a fucking blight, though they are even more diverse than Jews... I wouldn't put a Sufi, or a Persian shi'ite in the same bag as a sunni arab, or worse, a salafist or wahhabite.

I'd say Islam is a blight. Muslims can be quite pleasant.

which was my point from the start.
Pretending that jews are the only religion that push hard for marriage within the own religion, is not realistic and that would mean that 'muslim' is as much a racial identity as is 'jew'. It's just preferential treatment of one religion.
