    That was different. I was just saying that people from different races shouldn't be in relationships or have mixed race children together (especially considering the circumstances I highlighted in that thread), that's all. That has nothing to do with racism. You should look up the definition of the word. I have not seen any racism on TSR.

    While we're at it, let's have separate bathrooms and only allow certain races into certain bars and restaurants :rolleyes:
    I'm in a mixed race relationship and if you don't think that telling someone who they should/shouldn't be with based on race isn't racist, then you're not paying enough attention to the meaning of that definition you're holding up.

    What and get this kind of condescending response? What's the point?

    You had an openly fascist and racist mod on here not that long ago. Clearly you're not at all interested in evidence.
    No, I tend to treat people that are helping the mod team with a great deal of courtesy. If it's reported to us (and there is basis to it) then we'll investigate and act where necessary.

    So what on earth happened with that openly fascist and racist mod? How did you miss it? Pretty sure i reported it at the time.

    I actually have no idea who you're on about (and this isn't the place for this discussion as it's potentially libellous).

    It doesn't - racist posts are dealt with as and when they are seen. I think the issue is more where the line is drawn - certainly in d&ca we're damned if we do and damned if we don't - we remove threads and we're accused of censoring peoples opinions, if we leave it and that develops into discriminatory posts we're accused of giving a platform to bigots - where do you draw the line in allowing proper debate without letting offensive posts crop up?

    Because what one person calls 'racist' another person sees as their right to express their opinion. It's almost never black and white. I would say a few of the posts I've read recently in D&CA have been offensive and anti-Semitic and have reported them. I am also open to the fact that another pair of eyes might see them as okay.

    Sure, but hey they will happily remove some pretty petty stuff so not sure what the big issue is with borderline racist posts, just needs a little common sense.

    No idea why this is still there. SpikeyTeeth has made a number of anti-semitic posts, seems pretty clear what the aim was with this.

    Yes I agree that joke is out of order although I also would not be happy with one of the replies calling the OP a '*******' either.

    Every day there are threads about Jews having too much power, Jews controlling the Western world, Jews being behind the West's poor relations with Russia and/or Syria. These things are separate from the Palestine debate (which many people have a legitimate interest in) and should be shut down as soon as they arise.

    The moderator reaction is so slow.

    To be fair, I don't think anyone has reported the posts so they tend to stay.

    The one I linked has, apparently it's ok because they used a question mark.

    I take the opposite approach, keep reporting (4 only today for example) and eventually the mods will see that investigating and dealing with these neo-Nazis, every single time they make a new alt is a waste of their time and be forced to actually take drastic action.

    Totally within TSR's rules :dontknow:
