Seems that way. Heimoshu recently launched into this assault on me:
[quote]Sure MM apologized but his apology is as full of shit as him and FM… Do you think that MM’s apology should stand. I think it is typical bigoted BS like that that gets to me…Now some pompous prick on a forum wants to score some points pointing that out and then offer a halfhearted apology. Fuck off.
“Fuck you and you dumbass opinions about South Africans and people who claim to be Taiwanese”.[/quote]
And Bizmark, the mod, leaves it sit and apparently even tags it with a like (he eventually cut the original post but still has left the content on his quote and has even defended the post).
Super80 and I both complain and we get this:
[quote]Well, he insulted the man’s country, and his countrymen directly, and him indirectly. What the hell do you expect? Saffas can get very defensive about these things. To be fair, I would have to suspend the both of them. But I’m not keen on that sort of thing. I’m sure MM can defend himself well enough. He’s good with words. Better than me, better than most.
He said, “Fuck you and you dumbass opinions about South Africans and people who claim to be Taiwanese”. Where I come from originally, that isn’t considered a personal insult. Them’re just fighting words.
Don’t insult a man’s country, his countrymen et al, and you won’t get a “fuck you and your opinions” in return, yeah? We’re all grown ups here. We realise the result of our words.[/quote]
First off I said nothing that the Saffies don’t say all the time on this site, or that they haven’t been telling me for 15 years: they don’t go back because they have nothing to go back to.
I meant no insult by that and apologized if it came out the wrong way. That should have been it but Biz decides he didn’t like it and would just sit back and do nothing when HMS went far beyond what the rules allow.
I’m been banned for saying “fuck off with the excuses” to a poster who was bragging about breaking the law. How do the remarks made above not result in even a warning?
The uneven moderation of this site is really pushing this site further towards self-immolation. Could we perhaps not keep lighting more fires?
