I may be wrong, but haven't you said here that offensive remarks against Jews and Israelis don't bother you a bit?

If I had read Echoes' banned post I would probably have chosen to laugh at it. Following my heart surgery I don't choose to be offended, I choose to laugh. It is a safer choice for me.

I love Russia - Christian rouge state run by heavily corrupt government.


Then again, Putin is wonderful. He steals superbowl rings.

As a Jew, Punky, would you agree there has been an increasing rise of anti-Semitism on the internet within the last three years?

I tried that in my own case of banning and got a reply that while my words may have been perfectly reasonable, the moderator was able to find a more sinister meaning, based on his personal opinion of me.

So no, I did not think of going that route.

And yes, I think that all too often people act offended in a belief that it demonstrates their superior moral judgement. But by deciding to be offended rather than just ignoring whatever it was that they deemed to be offensive, they just lend relevance to the supposed offender.
Well, you could basically choose not to be offended by anything, whether it's spam/commercials, hate, porn, trolls, etc. and have a moderation-free forum. Like I said this is not one of those and that's pretty all there is to say about it, though you can always contact Vertical Sports and propose them your idea

Fascinating that Russia has never had any kind of sensible leadership.

Do ordinary Russian citizens understand that their political leaders are a laughing stock in modern countries?

Well, same could be said about Berlusconi, George Bush and some other 'modern' countries.

Is stating that the American government is worse than Nazis OK here, or would that cross a line? Bearing in mind that the government represents the American people?

Is there some point to that or you are simply bored?

Edit: It's under discussion now.
