Heil Hitler!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

From Russ Lipton, AKA Big Dog, at the new TB2000 forum:

While there never was a requirement on the sysops here to discuss any administrative policies we have defined for this forum, we have both permitted and engaged in some discussion over the past few days about the subject of who was/is banned and why.

[How generous of them.]

At this point, we believe that no useful purpose will be served by continuing to discuss either the reasons behind such decisions with respect to who may post (or not) or the people on such a list.

[In other words, we've been embarassed enough.]

Those who want to debate this issue further should do so outside this forum.

[ ... where there are no Nazi Mind Control types.]


[It is on ANY forum. No one questions their RIGHT to act as Nazis. But is it RIGHT to do so?]

Both now and in the future, we may restrict the access of anyone whether or not warnings or reasons have been provided to them or others. Those who know us realize we consider that a "last resort".

["We" obviously doesn't include Old Git, who cannot tolerate the slightest disagreement of any form. She wants to be able to babble about tomatoes and Evil Empires without being bothered with annoying facts.]

This thread is not open to further discussion about the issue. I will also close other threads that touch on this matter.

[By all means. That way, Lurkers will think that they've chanced upon one big happy family -- never realizing that half the members have been aborted into the nether regions by mind-controlling Nazis.]

Finally, any INDIVIDUAL posts that accuse persons or sysops on this forum of engaging in "censorship", "dictatorship" or the like may subject that poster to being banned, either immediately or at the later discretion of the sysops.

[Translation: we don't believe in free speech.]

[That's your legacy, folks. Hope you're proud of it.]

Been quite a bit of garbage thrown at the moderator of BFI. No one has been deleted for cussing out the moderator.

A few for sexual references to other posters, a threat or two and some spam about fills the list.

For me *ANY* post starting with "Heil Hitler" is OT, at least on the forums I visit. As I don't know you personally, I wouldn't presume to judge you by the same yardstick.

Are you by any chance DiEtEr's sibling?

I take exception to your comparison of Nazis to Ed Yourdon's flagrant use of censorship.

Nazis killed people - they killed people - for pete's sake.

What Yourdon, et. al. has been doing is morally, intellectually, and ethically wrong, but it is in no way comparable to what the Nazis did.

I think it's more like intellectual coercion/terrorism. It's the kind of crap that often times goes on in domestic abuse.

Ultimately, it's the people who are censored, or who can prove damages from intellectual abuse that would be able to stop it. Ed knows this, and you can bet he has NO conscience and is smiling smugly while his fat ass gets fatter sitting at his computer.

But, hey! Separating people from their money is legal in this country. Killing isn't. Can we do away with the Nazi metaphor, please?
