Let’s Take It Down A Notch, Shall We?

I’ve ignored it for too long, and usually only mention when someone complains. Take the personal insults down about 30 notches. No more spoofing other poster’s names. No more nasty personal names. No more epithets. We’re adults here, regardless of political affiliation.

    Thank you.

      Well, let’s see who actually abides by it.

      The idea the fictitious characters were the only victims to which this applies is no small joke.

  2. Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

    Guess now we know who complained.
    Not surprising though.

  3. Bill Bear says:

    An excellent policy. Thank you.

  4. Professor Hale says:

    Excellent. But we can still call people communists, right? That’s more of a political label than a epithet. Like saying someone is a Democrat. It’s not my fault if people are ashamed of the truth.

  5. Bill Bear says:

    The term “communist” has become meaningless, as the regressives use it. It is entirely disconnected from any political meaning as used by the far right. Now it simply means “anyone I wish to discredit but lack any factual basis on which to do so”.

    • formwiz says:

      The same goes for the inaccurate application of fascist, I would assume.

    • Kye says:

      When you say “as the regressives use it” whom do you mean by regressive? Once again you #@%&*, “regressive” IS an insult but whether you like it or not, $%@#&* communist is still a political philosophy and a party. You can’t even last a couple hours. You are completely unable to speak without pejoratives. WOW!

      • Bill Bear says:

        UrbanDictionary.com probably gives the best (or at least, the most concise) definition:

        “Regressive Right is is composed of the more negative aspects of far right political opinions, specifically in such a manner that frowns upon critical thinking in favor of dogmatic thinking… Such examples include sexism against women by virtue of their gender, denouncement of racism while simultaneously denouncing people of color by virtue of their skin color, denouncement of any economic philosophy alien to Capitalism, Christian apologetics, Islamophobia, American Exceptionalism, etc.”

        • Kye says:

          Good for you, Bill Bear. You’ve managed to Google the least intellectual but most anti American source possible beside Pravda. I don’t think Urban Dictionary is an arbiter of anything let alone English definitions. Besides you didn’t say “regressive right” you said regressive. If there is a regressive right there must also be a regressive left. I assume they would be the communists since they managed to slaughter 100 million plus in the last century. That sounds very regressive to me. So, which is more regressive, people on the”far right who frown upon critical thinking” (says the guys who won’t allow disagreement on campus) or murdering communists on the left. I’ll get back to you on that.

          • Bill Bear says:

            Kye requested a definition, and I supplied it.

            If he chooses to reject the definition, that is entirely his choice. His unwillingness to discuss the definition does not change the fact that the definition exists.

    This IS an April Fool joke, right? I mean, I’ve been called a racist, bigot and white supremacist so long I’m kinda used to it. Not to mention homophobic, a misogynist, Islamophobe and the all encompassing “ignorant”. What will the leftists do if they have to engage rather than insult?

    Professor Hale, if they can use our party or political affiliation it’s only right we use theirs. Communist is a party/political philosophy and if they think it’s an insult they should change parties.

  7. Professor Hale says:

    Well. That didn’t last long.

  8. The Neon Madman says:

    Good on you, Teach. Your level of tolerance has been far beyond mine. I would have had the banhammer out long ago. JG is about the only commenter I have been reading lately.

  9. MSG Grumpy says:

    Good call, We should treat each other with respect –
    we are all adults,
    we are all individuals,
    we are all different!
    (I’m not)
