Yes, you are. Because nobody's trying to put a label on every forum member. Words have meaning, and they attach themselves to an ideology, which has consequences. So are you getting tired of people being held responsible for their words?

I'm sick of people labeling people and crying out that the world is against them. You started this because you wrote a nasty post and you want to hold someone else responsible for it being deleted as opposed to you seeing your own words as wrong.

Re: Biased moderation

And I quote CHUFF, "EF has become a home for alt-right and alternative science nutters (and that unfortunately includes MC) and it is extremely disturbing."

Sorry, but not twisting his words. I could count the number of so-called "alt-right" on 1 hand. "Alternative science nutters" seems to include anyone who questions anything about climate change, so I would expect there to be more than a handful, but certainly EF is not a very welcoming home for them.

BTW, not a Libertarian in any way, shape or form. In fact, consider them cowards for not really believing in anything except the right to be left alone... I DO agree with you that words have meaning and that one needs to be willing to accept the consequences of their words. Free speech might be free, but it is NOT free from the consequences that your words might bring.

And NO WHERE did I see anything about MC leaving, only that she is the reason that some of us stay. Now who is the forked tongue devil twisting words to your own nefarious purposes. I suspect that your family has rubbed off on you, you horrible Libertarian!!!

I'll just chalk it up to critical thinking skills then, bc none of that makes a lick of sense.

I asked you if people stay because of her moderation habits, because why else would you argue she keeps people around when nobody was saying she shouldn't be here, only that she shouldn't moderate. You know what? never mind. I'm not going to get an actual answer anyway. You and the other three people who commented around your post aren't interested in answers, just more posturing and spinning.

Then why don't you just dismiss yourself. Nobody's forcing you to read any of it. I started this because a person who was directly involved, quite heavy to one side, used her moderation power to delete something that called out a chum of hers. That's the only reason. You can go now.

Are you not responsible for your own words? As per the forum rules I understand why your post was deleted. I'm hoping your see the irony in that you feel personally attacked for having your personal attack deleted.

Re: Biased moderation

This always amuses me, I get a post deleted by a mod, that has been thanked or green repped by AT LEAST 1 other mod.
It happened again today

Re: Biased moderation

Methinks the snowflake doth protest too much...

For someone who seems to hold his own critical thinking skills in high regard, and claims that "words matter" how do you think it is ok to aggressively attack someone in the post that MC deleted. Have you even read the forum rules? I think you were lucky not to get at least a 24hr timeout.

Your not a noob according to your join date. Why are you acting like one?

I stand behind my words, so yes I'm responsible for them. I don't see any irony since I never said I feel attacked, nor was my post a personal attack, but rather an attack on Mr Tony Clifton Libertarian's lies and general b.s.

But just keep on twisting. I'm sure you'll get it eventually.

Blah blah snowflake blah. Now there's some irony, calling the guy a snowflake noob who maybe hurt the little Libertarian's feelings too much. That's right buddy, I've been around a while.

I and my critical thinking skills think it's ok to call out a snarky b.s. artist when he's blatantly lying about a deadly pandemic. Call it an aggressive attack if you will, that still doesn't change the fact that the mod was biased. That point seems lost on you.

I can think of a number of reasons. Projection, jumping to conclusions, passive aggression, toilet training issues, maybe on the bottle too long?

A misunderstanding of "irony".

I like your avatar.
