That’s not true.

In this case, though, the response that got him banned, wasn’t to the newb who made the Satanism comment. The thread hadn’t really devolved into a spitting match yet. Nobody provoked him into name calling or personal attacks.

JR stated plainly where he stands, without name calling or derision. He said nothing that would even be considered strong compared to the usual level of vitriol these threads tend to break down to.

The long and short of it is, if you’re going to argue with the owner of a site about how he runs it and imply that he and what he stands for is *fringe*, you can expect consequences.

Cm exercised poor judgment; he could have stepped away from the keyboard, he could have accepted the reprimand and moved on. This isn’t the same as face to face confrontations where it’s far more likely to result in unintended consequences. At the keyboard, you have time to think it through, compose the response, and hit the post button twice. Flying off the handle is just not warranted.

The other question is why cm, along with other evos, are so intent on making FR *DClite*? If you guys object so strongly to the position FR taking, why stay when you have your own God-free evo only forum?

That’s not true.

Is that your opinion, or are you submitting that as objectively verifiable fact?
