While of course people in other countries may be unaware of these things, i think it’s their responsibility to look into the history if they’re going to argue whether or not someone is racist. But like as I said, slavery was very recent, legalized racism was even more recent and black people are st...

those were just examples. Any racist term is prohibited. Some terms are not racist in all contexts. Obviously you can use the word animal when referring to actual animals but to use it to refer to people would not be allowed.

So, what you are saying, is that you are happy for people to make unsubstantiated claims such as that, provide no evidence to support the claim when it is asked for, and the person so labelled has to prove a negative "that they are not racist" with no indication what was supposedly "...

I tried to post some clear guidelines in the improving WP thread but they were just statements buried in parts of that thread so here is a better attempt at some very clear guidelines regarding racism and calling out racism. 1. Posting racist slurs will not be tolerated (Deeply offensive terms like ...

Still no response from Alex on this or any of the other heartfelt comments we have made on this thread. Alex, So many of us have tried to work towards a resolution with you and we have yet to be addressed. Instead, you came and briefly commented on an avatar, and then bailed again. I realize no one...

If people don't like the way WrongPlanet is run, then why do they stay? They don't. Haven't you been paying attention? Oh, I do see that ... good people who try to do good eventually get fed up and quit, while many of those who stay seem to make their every post a complaint about one thing or anoth...

^ I've pm'd him Good luck with that... On a related note: I do find some humour in the remarks by Alex about people supporting Mr Trump being white supremecists (or at least inferring they all are), then a few days later a prominant white supremecist goes and backs Mr Biden for this year's election...

I’m just trying to prevent racism and hate on the site not push a specific political belief. As far as this upcoming election goes, I’m not voting based on my politics, just voting to get rid of trump. I suspect a lot of Republicans will be doing that as well. I understand your point of view Alex. ...

Straight talking: Alex in the space of a few days you have undone the work of thousands of man hours, you may have no heed on our work or our voices, you may take our autistic energy for granted, but that doesnt mean that I will consent to being taken for granted. You may own the site and invest ha...
