Response to DPC.Comment (Reply #7)

37. This is true, DPC. There are some things you simply cannot say...

even if they are your opinion and you say them in a rational non-rude way.

To be fair, not EVERYONE blocked you. There are just a few posters who run around hitting the alert button on everyone they disagree with.

Some jurors in voting whether to hide a post or not, gauge it solely on whether they agree with the post that was alerted on. I've served on some juries and seen responses that were comments disagreeing with the SUBSTANCE of the alerted-on post, rather than whether it's against the rules or rude, etc.

I could probably even write a list of what you are not allowed to say, according to those few posters.

Keep in mind it's not everyone. Most will accept a differing opinion and will simply argue back and forth with you, and THEY will be RUDE to you, but not alert on you.

You can expect some strenuous arguments when you disagree with something that's legal and a constitutional right, though. Which is as it should be. People SHOULD strongly argue for their constitional rights.

Turn it around. You say you are gay. Are you accepting of posters who are anti-gay, under all circumstances? Would you consider their posts not hurtful, not rude?
