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.

Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

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.

Everybody's getting along, but you.

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.

It's 5 years later and I think they should be shut-down.

While I'm not fond of the behavior threads in certain sections tend to inspire... nah. Having non-TMNT sections is at least the equivalent of putting out snacks so people will still hang out a bit while there is next to no Turtles stuff to talk about.

Talk about banning talk is pathetic and a cop out. Like cancel culture for the life-angry.

It doesn't matter, the 'usual suspects' are going to bring up politics in any thread in the TMNT only sections as well, they already do.

just because it's different doesn't make it better. school shootings on the rise. SJW's run amock... political divide worse than ever. Politics in EVERY aspect of life.

Give me the simple 80s any day....when you knew what was what.

or at least nothing WORTH talking about. Ever since Laird sold the company, all hope for tmnt was lost.. the moment michael bay was mentioned, you knew the direction they wanted to take things...

Even IDW has gone down hill...and that was the shining bright spot.
