Really, I don't even care if people are pro-gay rights or anti-gay rights as it is there choice. However, on a site such as this the self-proclaimed "post Nazis" ought to be a bit more even-handed when they dole out their biased judgments as to what is appropriate or inappropriate. When somebody crosses the threshold into flat-out homophobic comments, they should be addressed. The poster I am referring to used the term "butt sex" and "perversion" over and over again in multiple posts and NOTHING was done about it.

ONE example (of many) can be found in this thread and it is STILL up after multiple reports were made regarding it by different people:

It's funny that particular person doesn't want his kids to see anything about homosexuality, but I think I'd be more embarresed for his kids to see some of his other ridiculous posts, especially the D E C L I N I N G SOOOOOUUUUUUTTTTHHHHHH H I L L S

I believe the post in question was left there because the replies it got showed how utterly stupid and absurd it was.

I'm sorry, but, I simply cannot agree with that. It's a homophobic and denegrating post and it (and the MANY others he posted as well) should be deleted as per the terms of service/rules here. If I were to have responded to him using any racial words/terms, I would have been most likely banned. As a matter of fact, my response to that was something to the effect of "Go step in front of a bus". Three months later, I received an infraction and a suspension from some mod for that response!!!

From the T.O.S.:
"Hate speech, racism or bashing of ANY sort will NOT be tolerated. Rude posts will be removed and infractions issued. Do not quote or talk to trolls or your posts will also be deleted. Use the report feature instead."

If that post doesn't fit that definition, I don't know what does, short of calling gays the "F" word or blacks the "N" word. If homophobic, insulting, and direct attacks are allowed to stand by one person (regardless of what race/sexuality/religion etc they are bashing), why not just throw out the rules altogether?

I have been treading lightly on this topic b/c I know we aren't supposed to complain about the mods, but I have to agree with BVH. Totally offensive crap should be deleted. I, too, have reported posts that could not be interpreted any other way, and they have been let stand.

Guys, if you have issues with moderation, feel free to DM me and we will talk about it. General rule is that we don't discuss it on the forum, even in a thread like this one.
Yac.

I must say this rule is fairly offensive. It is understandable that you operate a private forum, and that in order to post on said private forum, you must abide by your rules, but seriously... Doesn't it just sound a little Big Brother-ish to be banning discussions regarding the moderators?

I see our friend returnedYinzer, aka Row Jimmy, Stagger Lee, greyhead and perhaps many others (I think), is no longer a member. He will probably be back. Don't feed the trolls! Watch out for people who say they have lived in Denver, Philly and Pittsburgh, work in urban planning, hate the suburbs, etc.
