    Totally can relate bbz. Went over to ISOC yesterday and had 12 posts removed in the space of 10 minutes. I feel like I'm being bullied for expressing my opinion and I really don't like this. I feel like I should report this to someone but Lord knows I'll probably have that reported and removed too. Tis a sorry state of affairs around here sadly :cry2:
    The ISOC should be renamed as the "Islamic Safe Space" and block anyone who isn't Muslim from entering.

    I blame the conflation of criticising Islam, the faith/ideology, and criticising Muslims, the people. In other words, I blame the word 'Islamophobia' and all its advocates.

    The Faith & Spirituality subforum is already a designated safe space. It was originally splintered from the religion forum to allow religious folk to discuss religious matters free of challenge of any kind. (source)

    but the way you criticise it matters too.....like the tones and wording you use can be impactful in either the wrong or right way
    You are now entering a different subject: decency and manners. These are not relevant to the subject of whether criticism of an ideology is bullying or not.

    Indeed. A thought police of this kind has recently emerged and aim to create 'rules', which are very much against Western values.
