    Airmax would not automatically be given one. But, I would be happy to step down were he interested. Clearly Mike would need to approve, but I didn't think I needed to specify that--I just took it as obvious.

    You said I brought it up. You did. And you did not need to mention it.

    When you try to get Airmax here as mod, I will make it my mission to make sure that doesn't happen. This site will barely survive you, much less you and Airmax.

    Fuck Airmax, Kaiser Bsh will never ever be inferior to pseudo-democratic Führer Max. 

    Bsh is a benevolent oligarch, Max is a corrupt fascist.

    In this thread, you certainly did.

    It does on COC enforcement. The wide degree of autonomy moderation was assured does that. Mike would only interfere in very rare circumstances, as I understand it.

    OMG. I feel like I have answered this question 20 times...probably because I have...You wouldn't know that, though. The answer is you cannot use the n-word but you can debate "that Black Americans have lower average IQs than white Americans and at least a few of those IQ points can be attributed to genetics."
    That's fine, but it would probably be the other way around if I was moderator.  IMO using 'the n-word' doesn't automatically mean one is a racist and trying to hide a racist agenda behind euphemisms and faux-science should be stamped on -but that is only how I would (try to) do things.   I think a moderator has every right - even duty - to operate as they see fit.   D'art is a privately owned and paid for - it's not a democracy.  C'est la vie.

    It probably should have been, on my part. I don't know where my hesitation came from.

    I heard a word that rhymes with granny and starts wit a T is currently banned. Does anyone have an up to date banned words list 
    It is tricky that one Wylted.  As I have found out for myself. 

    I was warned about using the extremely vulgar and offensive words - stupid – and backward -.

    I had the audacity to ask someone if they were “stupid” and I also had the cold never to ask someone if they were “backward”. I simply cannot imagine the permanent irreparable and psychological damage I must have caused, but I was warned via PM . But I have found in life that someone who acts or performs in a stupid manner are usually called  stupid and or backward. I suppose we have so many stupid people and backward people using the internet that it were only a matter of time before word censoring became part and parcel. It is hard not to offend anyone these days. 

    I was told that these words  constitute personal attacks”.
     
     
     I was also warned against  warning someone that I would report them if they insisted on disruptive behaviour on my thread?
     
    Actually the words used in the warning was
     threatening to report someone”  Threatening!!!!!!??????
     
     To which was added that it 

    “is entirely unacceptable and viewed extremely unfavourably by moderation”. 

    So to give someone a friendly warning that you will report them is taboo also.
