Censorship question

by Rectiphobe    May 21, 2012, 5:43 PM

Can one post comments that are offensive to a large portion of the population, but which are not directed to any individual here?

This has mostly to do with sensitive issues, such as abortion and Trayvon Martin (obviously, this is Lounge-specific).

It seems a few users have been warned/banned for making offensive posts, and I disagree with that type of moderation. I think things like personal insults and profanity should be removed if they must; comments that are risque or taboo should not.

It is impossible to appease everybody; somebody will always be offended by something. Perhaps your philosophy is that if somebody reports something, you must take action. What I would do is simply ban those who abuse the "Report to Moderator" button.

Oops. I offended somebody.
