I, one of the self-hating, sexless, prudish, anti-fun, slut-shaming, anti-pro-homosexual gays on the moderation team, was against him coming back in the first place.
What did this guy even do that makes you hate him so much lol? I mean, I didn't agree with him on everything, but he made some damn good threads and contributed a lot to the forum in terms of content. Apparently he had been banned back before I joined, but unless he was literally destroying the forum, let it go.

I don't say this to criticize your authority.

Too late.

RIP, FF.

Did Adam (Ohio Adam, not Georgia Adam) seriously try to make this into an Atlas repression of gay rights thing?

A bunch of self-hating gays with anti-pro-homosexual agenda teamed up with the Junior Anti-Sex League to purge the Atlas Forum and make it a straight-only domain.

LOL.

I can see two sides to the issue.  The root of the problem seems to be a non conciliatory nature which was intrinsic to his style of debate.  It should have been more evident that this element had not disappeared.  It is unfortunate that the appearance of how this occurred lends credence to the theory that the specific content of his new posts was as much of a factor as his previous history on the forum.

Obviously, there are clear inconsistencies in the manner with which users are banned.  It seems to be as much a flaw in the system in how the death points are accrued as much as any grassroots push from posters; for example, some people have been talking about banning Bushie for years, for trying to scam members into buying into Ameriplan, among other things.  The fact that Krazen is still here, spamming threads with links to faux-news sites, is a mystery.

The more I think about it, the less I understand why he would be permitted to post here only briefly just to be given the boot once again.  It seems like an exercise in pointless 'proving of a point.'

You're making lots of good points. Banning policy is hardly consistent.

As of Libertas' particular case, I must admit the swiftness of his banning was surprising, especially as he just gave up arguing in certain thread. I still feel he mishandled his return, not realizing that, as freshly re-banned controversial poster he should have displayed less belligerent attitude (at least for some time). Yet his return was somewhat derailed by hostility he received (including from those who weren't even around for his original tenure). Behavior of some during the "affair" leaves bad taste.

About Poland:

"In Poland, it was published in 1992 and reprinted in 1998. The Government of Bavaria halted its publication in 2005, stating that the book is protected by copyright. Possession is legal. Trading is legal, but may be considered illegal in case when "intent is to promote NS ideology". It is widely available in larger libraries for research purposes."

Thanks for claryfing.
108  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: What will happen after the copyright of Mein Kampf expires? on: January 17, 2015, 11:06:39 am
I doubt Germany and Austria would have to ban it explicitly after this year, I would say possession and sale of the book would fall under the prohibition paragraph/law. I guess quite a few other European nations would simply just ban it?

I can't speak for other countries, but Polish law specifically prohibits propagating fascist or nazis ideas, which would make any legal publication impossible without specifically banning the book.

He's merely upholding the Church's doctrine. I don't agree with him, but did you really expect the Pope to avoid what is after all an important social issue?

I haven't really followed the made over Libertas, because his act bores me, but when you manage to be let back after a ban, it's pretty stupid to push the edge again right away and return to the  high maintenance mode

Indeed. Libertas failed to understand that, as freshly un-banned controversial poster, he is on, shall we put it, probation.

The Dixiecrats are dying.

Literally and figuratively.

Elizabeth Warren is a Dixiecrat?
Is someone who moved out of Oklahoma decades ago and besides that no one is saying 30% of registered Ok democrats aren't liberals.

Fred Harris was a Dixiecrat? The Dixiecratic party wasn't even on the ballot in Oklahoma in 1948, so technically there are no Dixiecrats there.

It's obviously refereeing to conservative Democrats that regularly votes Republican, not to all (especially past) Democrats from the region and not to a short-lived 1948 party, as "Dixiecrat" is being used in wider context than that.

Why wouldn't they?

You registered in 2009 but have only posted three times, all within the past month or so.

Just putting that out there.

Doesn't seem unreasonable to assume a Libertas sock.

Libertas went back in time to 2009 to create a sock account?


Sleeper cells man.  We need our mod team to have the highly honed paranoia of James Jesus Angleton

Was Harold Wilson a Libertas' sock?

117  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of the rebanning of Libertas on: January 17, 2015, 07:37:06 am
To a large extend, Libertas brought this upon himself. While there was some improvement from his old version, he retained essentially the same unnecessary belligerent attitude and just couldn't keep himself from escalating the whole "controversy" by reacting to every provocation by the likes of Snowstalker he should've ignored. The victim complex of some "grand conspiracy to reban him" didn't help either.

I really tried to be helpful to him, and so did the others, but he just didn't listen.

What do you mean? These people are literally calling for the exact same thing.

No they're not. There's a significant difference between granting lawful rights to an oppressed racial minority as opposed to a lifestyle choice which is strongly discouraged in Holy Writ.

So, following this "logic", I assume the fact you and I are attracted to an opposite sex was also a "choice"?

I hate this about this site.  Right wing is the far right of the American political spectrum.  Ted Cruz is not right wing.  Left wing is the far left of the American political spectrum.  Bernie Sanders is left wing.

Good, good. The Democrats need to fight against this right-wing madman at every turn, before he destroys the state of Illinois.
How is he a "right-wing madman"?  He's pro-choice, supports gay marriage, and seems to be more of a liberal on other social issues.  I'd call him more of a moderate Republican.

If you have an R next to your name - or hold any fiscally moderate to conservative positions at all - you are a right-winger on this site.

Conservatism is right-wing, genius.

I hate this about this site.  Right wing is the far right of the American political spectrum.  Ted Cruz is not right wing.  Left wing is the far left of the American political spectrum.  Bernie Sanders is left wing.

Brian Sandoval and Charlie Baker are moderates; they ARE NOT right wing.

Joe Manchin and Andrew Cuomo ARE NOT left wing.

Now you are very left wing, so I'm sure like 75% of the population seems right wing to you, LOL.
Sandoval and Baker are centre right, it's still on the right of the political spectrum.

Preceisly. "Left" and "right" are wider terms. Just as there's difference between a moderate leaning to the left and a moderate leaning to the right.

Now you are very left wing, so I'm sure like 75% of the population seems right wing to you, LOL.

Nice try, but that's dangerously too close to "everybody's on Louis XVI's right is a raging socialist" reasoning, prevailing within your party Wink
