    If they did half the posters here would be banned within a week.

    Or, they'd stop using racial slurs.

    A thousand times, I'd say yes. Take away that, and the Stormfronters have little left for their racist rants. They'd have to get creative, and I just don't see them reaching those levels. It's not my place though, but I see them being just as bad as what falls under 12b.

    Why's that?

    Using racial slurs in thread titles is already prohibited.

    As long as there is a clearly-defined list of prohibited terms, what's the issue?

    No; because the determination of such, is subjective.

    If the proposed rule lists specific racial slurs that aren't allowed, it's objective.

    The determination of what constitutes a breach of Rule 12b is subjective.

    Plenty of people manage to survive here without calling other posters pedophiles. If that prohibition can be enforced, so can others.

    I imagine that a sliding scale of punishment could be put in place by the Moderation team for people who use specific racial slurs.

    For example, a ban of 1 week could be imposed for a first offense, 2 weeks for a second, and so on.

    Frankly I prefer things the way they are now. It makes it so easy to figure out who to ignore right off the bat. Does this subject mean something special to you? I am just trying to understand why it's important.

    I abhor racist slurs.

    I respect your opinion.

    Those aren't "racial" slurs, are they?
