    There's a good bet that this thread will eventually be deleted, too.
    I will wreak havoc on this site if it does :laugh:

    Seriously though there's absolutely no way a deletion of this topic can be justified even by TSR's standards.

    "Freedom of speech"



    It's great when they criticise western women calling them whores but when we do the reverse and called islamic women oppressed because of their religion, we get reported.
    There's nothing to be done about it, I'm afraid. :dontknow:

    The Punjab Protection of Women against Violence Act 2016 actually passed in Parliament, it's just that one crazy group that is asking the government to retract it.

    Of course it can be justified by TSR's standards. The thread topic is almost irrelevant to the Islam-related threads that get deleted -- it's usually to do with the debate veering too far off-topic (again, by TSR standards) or becoming 'unconstructive' (before some I-Soc brownshirt considers reporting this for 'discussing specific moderation actions' -- this is from a post by a former moderator on a public thread, which I'm happy to link if required).

    Try doing your own research without using wikiislam.
    An atheist using WikiIslam is no different to a Muslim using IslamQA, which I have seen many Muslims use as a reference source on TSR (perhaps even yourself?)

    Every article on WikiIslam has links to the relvant Quran verses, hadith or sirah, just like IslamQA (and all the other similar sites).

    I really fail to understand what the difference is supposed to be...unless it is the usual "Pro Islam=good. Anti-Islam=bad" argument.

    It is interesting that sceptics feel comfortable use both sources as reference, whereas apologists will only use one. I wonder why that is?

    Brownshirt
    noun
    a member of an early Nazi militia founded by Hitler in Munich in 1921, with brown uniforms resembling that of Mussolini's Blackshirts. They aided Hitler's rise to power, but were eclipsed by the SS after the “night of the long knives” in June 1934.

    It's a reference to the concerted efforts made by some members of the TSR I-Soc to get TSRians who are critical of their religion banned by mass-reporting their posts for minor offences. I'll stop there, though, before someone reports me for 'off-topic discussion.' :rofl:

    It's the same old, 'Ha! You used Wikipedia, so you're wrong/ignorant/using Sheikh Google!' jeer. Right up there with, 'evolution is just a theory.'

    That may true, but ISOC's Islamic Freedom Army of Post-Reporting don't think in terms of that.

    Reported. You should've thought about before making such an Islamophobic and anti-Muslamic statement mate.

    I agree, they seem to think freedom of speech is conservative code-word for we hate muslims or something.

    Well, to be fair, freedom of speech is not a legal guarantee on a privately-owned website like TSR. :beard:

    Well if Facebook and Twitter's decline is anything to go by, social media companies infringing on "speech" (based on feelings) usually ends up declining in terms of users...

    However, I realise the demographic makeup of TSR users is different than FB/Twitter so the same principle cannot be applied with confidence.

    I wouldn't say that it costs TSR users -- on the contrary, the more it can claim to be a nice, friendly place where nobody has to worry about having their feelings hurt, the more people from the student demographic they will attract and retain (do you ever wonder why Chat is one of the most active fora? :rolleyes:).

    In terms of negative consequences, it most likely means that there's an upper limit to the mean IQ, because anybody with any sense and the determination to express it will, sooner or later, be forced to leave.
