Guidelines, rules, laws = monitoring and enforcement...
The enforcement of "Don't Be A DU Asshole Guidelines" and suggested website forum upgrades sound like a lot of hassle for the dozen or so members who actively blow their brains out on these white DU forum walls.
Perhaps as an alternative members could pretend to click on the invisible "Hide" or "Ignore" thread button and simply choose not to read the thread or post they know is going to piss them right off.
If we can't be tolerant, respect other member's opinions and accept that in the real world people aren't always going to see things from our perspective... then maybe we need to self impose a personal forum timeout. I can highly recommend ignorance and a life outside DU.
Besides... freedom of speech, hate speech, narcissistic soapboxes and our insignificant opinions are so overrated.
On the flip side, the chaos and raw emotion unleashed in the forums has been valuable to me over the years... its been an unexpected source of inspiration and made me reflect and realise that we can all be assholes... big, small, good and bad.
Don't waste time dissecting my worthless opinion... I've clicked the "Could Not Give A Flying Fuck About This Thread" button before I hit submit.
Well, there's always the argument to be made that there would be more than a dozen or so members posting in these forums if they weren't constantly tripping over tripe in virtually every thread.
Don't believe these leftist and their deconstructionist jive. They wish to rewrite history, especially their own, and tear down all tradition and past standards. This is currently pushed by white elitist democrats, whom have absolutely no room to talk about anything. If we are now to remove everything that is connected, as they see it, to bigotry... Then let's begin with the piece of shit Jim Crow Democrat slave party. This Klan party did all the fuckery from founding the slavery party, instigating all post civil war racist laws to just recently being caught doctoring evidence in their sham impeachment.
Cancel the democrat party, founder of institutionalized racism in America. If Seuss must go then they absolutely must be banned....
A few guideline tweaks and volunteer moderators actually moderating voluntarily ( "Hey, you - don't spam the same Hate Shit everywhere." ) pretty much dispenses with the need to vigorously, drastically overhaul anything.
