Time to close the thread, it's become divisive and now succumbing to mission creep......

Maybe.....but. I strongly disagree with TB,s choice of words, but equally strongly defend his right to use them.
Freedom of speech, expression and thought, as long as not intended to manipulate others into committing violence, are probably the most precious things a society can have.
They are under severe threat in todays world, and we wont really miss them until they are gone.
If you disagree with what someone says, dont take action to stop them speaking.
Engage them in conversation and win the debate. Or ignore them.

This about sums it up.

There are many people who believe in freedom of speech only when you agree with them.

As soon as you don't they play the 'hate speech bigot card' and try to shut you down.

What an odd thread, standout statement for me is   "You could argue that her punishment was a little harsh."

It is his Forum that he has chosen to avail to the public :-X

I don't agree with his point of view on this, but I respect it as his point of view.

Just before locking, I wanted to correct that statement, just for 100% clarity.

It is our forum.
