This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by etherealtruth (a host of the General Discussion forum).

their own personal site banhammer against anyone they disagree with?
Should the HoF group have the ability to ban posters completely on their own?
It's clear they will be happy with nothing less

4. do not make this only about hof. it is not only hof. it is not only a few. look at the

 

threads with all the other voices. the recommends. do not dismiss all those voices on du. it is wrong. it is not nice. and it should be called out each and every time. that is not the reality. a lot of people are putting in their time, and being a strong voice. what a disservice to ALL those people. and there are lots and lots.

wow. what an insult. lol

So clearly we aren't as all powerful as the Discussionist crowd imagines. I'm guessing there is a thread over there that got him riled up since no one has been banned recently, that I know of.

there are plenty of places at DU where you can discuss pretty much whatever you want.

Perhaps you should start a one man discussion board where you can be absolutely right about everything all the time instead of completely wrong about many things quite often. Like now.

40. Meta, but rest assured that many of us objecting to misogyny here aren't part of the "HoF group"

I don't recall ever seeing the HoFfers asking for the ability to ban posters either. Their hosts can and do block people from within the group, just as hosts in other groups do.
