    Default Rule 15 update...

    15. No posting slurs of any kind in thread titles in the political or announcement area, it will result in the title being changed and may result in a ban for repeat offenders. (This is to ensure Twitter doesn't ban our account).

    I guess I should define "slur"...

    A slur is a word that "insults" an entire group of people though it may be used in the context at one person. ie the "n" word...

    Things that are slurs would include (this list is not all inclusive) racial epithets, homophobic epithets, Transphobic epithets. The moderation team will have to use their own judgement. Not every insult is a "slur".

    Now, please understand that this rule is about thread titles only.

    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    Does Twitter know you're the host of racists? Now threaten me as you usually do.

    How come when actual racists call people "darkies" or other blatant racism you keep your mouth shut while I destroy them for thier racist comments?


    and how would that make me a "Racist"? see you want what a lot of lw forums are doing you want a purge of all of the right and libertarians under the guise of "racism". you have no evidence that I am a racist but plenty that I am violently anti racist, yet here you are calling me a racist and saying you think racists should be banned. The racists the actual racists like text drivers and a couple others I noted may have a home here, but it's not a happy home when they cross my path.


    you seem to look the other way at actual racists while calling people like me who are very openly hostile to actual racists, racist. in other words, you suck at this.

    impossible, racism violates the non aggression principle of libertarian philosophy and in incompatible with libertarianism. All libertarians are anti-racist. anyone who claims otherwise is not a libertarian.

    There's a blatant irony somewhere in this thread.
