I used to see them frequently, but as I said (and according to what people have reported) it's changed since my experience.
[/FONT]

 I have been on DV, not DDV, for years.  I can't say I have seen anything like that on the DV board.  Now what went on over at DDV, I haven't the foggiest.  It was a little too chaotic for my liking.

[FONT color=#5b5b5b]To me the picture was no big deal. It's how the community responds. And it looks like it was a yawn, by all account. [/FONT]
 
That tells me something right there.  The DV community didn't even bat an eyelash at that crap because the posters realized it was a lame attempt at trolling.

No, that's not at all what I said. I think there's a big difference between a discussion of race (even a very spirited discussion)  and 100 posts that say "KILL ALL THE N*GGERS", don't you? I have no problem with offensive material in context, but that's not what 100 posts that say "KILL ALL THE N*GGERS" is all about, is it? Is that what you consider a "discussion around contentious social, political and religious issues"?

If people want to discuss race, religion, whatever, that's fine. If you want to advocate killing muslims, jews, blacks, or asians, then no, it's not. At least not in my house.


It sounds like you guys have a problem with dissension if it doesn't agree with your own values.[/div]
I don't think so, but I can only speak for myself.



Well said TehBorken.  

I'm curious Marty, when exactly have you seen that type of discussion curbed here, or are you just assuming that's what would happen.

 Who is advocating for the killing of Jews, Muslims, Blacks, Asians, etc on DV?

  I was asking if you curb that kind of discussion.  I asked because it seems contentious issues on DV are an issue for discussion here.

  Once again I note: I have never seen anyone saying "Kill The N*ggers" aside from a known troll who's posts I don't consider to be a discussionable contribution to any board.

Sorry, I am going to re-reply this.  I meant to delete the stuff above and just post my post... (PS - your quoting set-up sucks ;)

We might, but it's hard to predict the future. (I always have a difficult time doing it reliably.) It's all done on a case by case basis but there's a good chance that if someone starts a "Kill The N*ggers" thread here that I or another mod would delete it. Why? Because we'd probably consider in inappropriate. There are plenty of places one can go to have that kind of discussion; this isn't one of them.

And before you go all "freedom of speech blah blah blah" on me, please understand that there's no more freedom of speech here than there is in my living room. There are lots of things you wouldn't let me do in your home, and it's no different here. There are some limits imposed, some things we won't tolerate or allow, and I personally don't lay awake at night feeling guilty over it.

In short, we reserve the right to do whatever we want as the situation warrants, just like you do in certain areas of your life. The users here are guests, not shareholders. Check the TOS; unlike the Constitution there's no right to free speech mentioned anywhere.

We're not obligated to provide anything for anyone at any time, regardless of whether or not a particular person feels it's fair or not. That includes providing an open forum with unlimited "free speech" or allowing stuff we don't like. In short, yes, there are some things we don't want here and won't go along with.

If you want that kind of forum, feel free to start your own. Run it however you like. Nothing's stopping you from doing that except yourself.

You never saw it so it didn't happen. Right. Look, absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence. Several people here have said they've seen those kinds of posts (including me). I don't feel the need to try and convince you of what I saw, but if you want to dispute it, feel free.

 As would it be deleted on DV so where's the beef?

 I believe in limits to freedom of speech.  I understand that people set their own limits on their own forums and don't challenge that.  If I don't like it, I know where I can go.  Although racism is not illegal, I see no place for it on any forum I frequent.

 Note the topic here Bork.  DV is a cesspit of porn and extremism.  The example provided is Kill the N*ggers.  No such thread or even sentiment currently exists on the DV board.  If people want to use real examples, I would be happy to entertain them as they pertain to the claim, however, that isn't the case here.  Kill the N*ggers was a thread I saw on this board no less, provided by a troll.  You can try to turn it back on me and try to lay claim that I just missed it on DV, but we both know that's a crock of crap.

 I won't challenge what DV used to be, but the topic at hand is in present tense.  Presently, that crap isn't on DV.  Would that denote improvement?

 Listen, the point is, if you or anyone else here would like to make a claim based on real examples that actually exist, I would happy to have a discussion about it.

Then I guess you'll just have to live with it.

Well then, apparently we're in total agreement. Case closed.


Note the topic here Bork.  DV [strong style="font-style: italic;"]is[/b] a cesspit of porn and extremism.  The example provided is [em style="font-style: italic;"]Kill the N*ggers.[/em]  No such thread or even sentiment currently exists on the DV board.  

I didn't say it currently exists. I said that at one time such subjects did exist. And for the record, perhaps you missed these comments of mine:

> "Like I said, it's been quite a while since I was there, but at the time there was no shortage of them."
and...
> "Like I said, perhaps it's changed."
and...
> "I used to see them frequently, but as I said (and according to what people have reported) it's changed since my experience." [/b]

Honestly, Marty, what part of "maybe it's changed since I last saw it" is hard to understand?


You can try to turn it back on me and try to lay claim that I just missed it on DV, but we both know that's a crock of crap.

So even though I personally did, in fact, see stuff like that there previously, your saying that you didn't see it somehow negates my experience and makes it false? It means it never happened? I don't think it works that way, lol.  Look, I saw what I saw. And not to belabor the point, but as I mentioned several times, apparently it's not that way anymore.

[/p]I won't challenge what DV used to be, but
[/p]Good, glad we got that settled.  
[/p]
[/p][p style="font-style: italic;"]Presently, that crap isn't on DV.  Would that denote improvement?[/p]Compared to my last impression of it, yes, it would. (For the record, please see above wherein I repeatedly state that it may have changed since I last saw it.) Hell, for all I know everyone just sits around there and sings Kum-bay-ya while holding hands.
[/p]
[/p]Listen, the point is, if you or anyone else here would like to make a claim based on real examples that actually exist, I would happy to have a discussion about it.  
[/p]I'm all for it. Anyone with current experience there is more than welcome to have a go at it.

So what are we debating here then?  You haven't been there in ages.  I am telling you that crap isn't there.  The thread title is a load.  End of story I guess.

I just noticed that but I suspect it was a DV impersonator rather than the member.

You know, the troll that runs around spamming anal pics on the board using variations of existing members names.  This FLANGE isn't the FLANGE from DV.
