Racial Slurs

We're having some posts being reported for the use of racial slurs in this forum. While it is widely known that there is some racism that goes on in this forum, those users have found a way to dance around the issue enough that the majority of moderators of this website have deemed the behavior fine for now.

It's really not okay to me at all. I don't believe that people of color should be subjected to that shit over political affiliations. That said, I'm a firm believer in a majority consensus so it is what it is at this point.

That said, overtly racial slurs will result in bannings. It is a bullet point in the TOS of this website, and not much is out of bounds. One user has already been banned, and another one has been warned. If you insist on trying to dance around racist comments, please be prepared for a vacation if you use a term that is deemed racist by the moderators. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

But if they continue the same behaviors that got them banned in the first place, they're gone again and we don't even really have to justify it to anybody because our TOS says that if you've been banned then we can ban you at any time for any reason we choose.
Makes sense and thank you for responding.

Now that we have easy anonymous reporting coupled with mods who have grown more activist, we see an expansion of the rule against racial slurs that exaggerates the disconnect between that rule and other forms of incivility (e.g. bitch, ****, pillowbiter, shitstain, and on and on).
You're mistaken on all counts. We haven't cracked down on less obvious slurs. They're just reported less often. We don't run around looking for infractions on this site. With 3000+ posts per day, there's no way we can traffic cop them all and we've specifically tried to avoid that perception. If our users have a problem with something that appears on this site, they are supposed to report it so we have a trail, we know what happened, and what was done to resolve it.

I was banned from a hockey board for suggesting that the French were utterly worthless except for those that had been relocated to North America for a few generations and taught to tend goal.

Watch yourself.

Say if I was having a discussion about immigration and someone brought up the 1954 Operation person of Hispanic heritage in the discussion. We all know now that the word " person of Hispanic heritage " is known as a racial slur, yet why does the government & historians still reference this yet we shouldn't use it in today's way of communications ?

Even in the 50's, during a time of when racial remarks and racism was running amok, it wasn't a good idea for then POTUS Eisenhower to use a word that is know as a slur, but he did or his administration did.

Why did they /he do this ?

Look, I can choose to walk in that pile of shit right there or go around it. It's my day, it's my nose and it's my choice.
Love the attitude. But you're the exception rather than the rule. Most the rules on this site were created because we've had issues at one time or another. We don't get off running around creating more rules to shove down everybody's throat. We generally respond to complaints and since we're among the most active users of this site, we want it to be a cool as everybody else wants it to be.

I guess you've managed to figure out how to take your frustration out on others in a far more enlightened way.

Bully for you, young man.
