Prosthetic Conscience wrote:Your opinion that someone who supports de-platforming would also say this is irrelevant. It is not a call for de-platforming. They might also say "racism is bad", but that doesn't mean that saying that is the equivalent of de-platforming.
I agree with all of this up to the point where you say that @WarmPotato wasn't calling for Allsup to be silenced, it seems to me that he was.
Prosthetic Conscience wrote:But you're the one objecting to the thread and trying to persuade WarmPotato to leave the forum.
I absolutely am not doing that, I am only pointing out, like @Bulaba Jones has done, that this is a free-expression of ideas kinda place and that he needs to be aware of this when joining, I consider this a courtesy. I'm not calling for anyone to be thrown off or leave. I don't work that way.
Prosthetic Conscience wrote:And yes, I did say something like "you're not for real", because I think you claim various views that you don't really hold but pretend to, for the sake of winding other people up. Because your views aren't consistent.
I suppose if you think so, we should debate it sometime. Why you refuse to do so with me is odd and I can't understand why you simply shut-off conversations with me. Obviously you have the right to do what you want on here, but it seems disingenuous for you to act like you are being an impartial defender of someone who doesn't really want to debate (but only silence or stop) other views when you have exhibited similar behavior towards me as a poster.
Perhaps I am being tu-qoque
on this, so I will be drop the point. Its not going to be profit me anything at this point anyway.

I understand his position and intentionally did not interject his status or position into the conversation as that would be a forum no-no. I am merely engaging with him as another poster, nothing more and nothing less. He indirectly referenced me and critiqued me in his post, which as far as I am aware, makes him free-game for a rebuttal.
Obviously, anyone can drop any conversation anywhere, but that was not my point, the context of that conversation was salient to my point on this thread; which is that PC is defending someone who supported de-platforming views he can't stand makes sense as he dropped conversations with me explicitly
because he couldn't stand something I said because of its "edginess."
If PC is someone that cannot be debated with because of some sort of official status he holds, let me know. I was not aware of such.
Further, I emphatically deny suggesting that any member should leave the forum EVER.
I've only attempted to point out that the forum has divergent views and if someone does not believe in hearing divergent views, they need to question their desire to expose themselves to such here by joining such a group
. A point which you yourself have brought up in your own posts on the matter
I can see that this conversation is now proceeding into the thin-ice territory of a potential
rules-violation trap of some-sort and I don't want to go down that road. This will be my last post in this thread
, if I have acted "inappropriately"
in some "formal" manner as it pertains to the moderator team or PoFo, please reach out to me in private.
Either way, I am done on here.
I didn't intend any disrespect to the Admin team, everything I said was done in the spirit of fair debate in a thread. That is all.
