Because those who whine most loudly about it write comments like this:
He is not in control of his speech or his actions when he attacks people (0.00 / 1) [delete comment]
And that makes him a victim of them, as well as a perpetrator of violence.
I am not going to continue this. You can investigate what I’ve advocated, accept it or reject it.
I am not advocating silencing anyone – but I am advocating placing limits on actions – in this case, hate speech and ad hominem attacks.
I also see in Armando’s attacks and escalation, acute signs of mental illness, and it’s that which is manifesting in the extreme speech which I believe is also a manifestation of Armando’s distress. Limiting his ability to hurl invectives while he isn’t in control of himself is similar to providing privacy for patients who are not in control. The intent is to preserve their dignity and worth, and to provide that in an environment with the least restraint possible to effect the goal.
You as site administrator/owner can schoose to have a PFF-like site, but that should be made clear so that visitors can make an informed decisions about participating.
I came based on Turkana’s recommendation and your “be excellent to each other” motto. I see that isn’t the case.
I choose to withdraw.
Now, did you really want this to be on the site?
If not, then please zero it out.
Okaaay then. Accusation of acute mental illness seem a tad bit uncivil. “Verbal violence” in fact, no? What would Gandhi say?
I know what I say, “civility” seems to depend on whose ox is being gored.
