I never saw that post, so it is impossible for me to have claimed, hinted or otherwise suggested that gays=pedophiles is controversial. I could now claim that I am offended by your accusation, but choose not to be.
Would it not be simpler to let other people in the forum deal with his remarks? We are mostly grown ups, we do not have to be Shielded from bigots. Surely it is not a crime to have erroneous opinions. Do you really think some MTF members read his post and said to themselves, "I hadn't realized that until now?"
I think we are nannied to the point where the forum is exceedingly dull.
And of course, as I said, I never even claimed that gays = pedophiles is controversial, in the sense that it may or may not be true.
There is ample evidence that it is not true.
What I actually said was that Echoes was being controversial in many of his posts. There is a big difference. But I think it is dangerous to ban people for being wrong. If everything posted here has to be right, then there is no need for discussion.
But if you are going to follow those guidelines, then I invite you to comb through recent threads and ban everybody that states that American Social Conservatives = Racist Rednecks. I think that is very discriminatory.
