Come and talk it out, you'll feel better. This is the olive branch.
It's okay. You'll see, we're not that scary.

Don't worry, it's just a thread about Ethics in ComicBook Storytelling.

Judging from the posts I saw sdp quoting, looks more like this to me.

Half of those aren't even in the thread in question though.
They're cherry picked from other discussions.

I'm still waiting for folks to define Toxic for me.
Which is a quote from this thread.

Fair enough with the first point.

As for toxicity, I don't believe there is any such thing aside from the stuff emitted by snakes, Just a new label people these days have used to describe what they believe to be wrong and must be censored.

I imagine its because outright banning someone for saying something wrong would be considered a violation of Freedom of Speech, so we have created all these exceptions/loopholes like hate speech, Freedom of Speech is not free, toxic. Basically: "You can say anything you want, as long as it is acceptable." Not that I'm against it or anything, I believe its only natural that people will want to surpress what they consider to be immoral.

To be fair, I've been edited here precisely because you didn't like what I had to say. If we're actually doing free speech, the mods wouldn't be rung 30 plus times, and we'd have no disintegrator unit.

Unless is the US Government doing the censoring, there's precious little that's a violation of the First Amendment. What a lot of people confuse with Free Speech violations are really just communities creating and maintaining their own standards of decorum.

The Mods could easily make a rule saying: We will ban anyone who uses SJW or FanBro, and they'd be well within their rights to do so.

That's not violating anyone's Free Speech.

Know what, you two both need to step back and stop instigating the hell out of each other.

Right now. I'm seriously sick of your back and forth bickering. And yes, I'm saying this out in public...

Knock it off.
