    It's that stupid:" split rpg codex and political codex " all over again. Except this time they confuse the right to express oneself, one of the basic human right, more and more impaired in modern globalist NWO, with a political side

    I can only imagine Infinitron like Wormtongue in DU's ear, "We could be a respectable forum." Except then you won't be anything at all. Just another turd in the toilet bowl.

    I voted free speech although by common sense it should be both.

    Using the ni*ger (using * to avoid autocorrect) insult or Nazis as a example to crack down on free speech is exactly bthe same tactics leftists use to legalise abortion.

    Say we need to allow abortion due rape victims or women whose life is threatened by pregnancy which in reality consist of like 1% of all abortions and others are out of convenience.

    Same with free speech, say we need to stop those pesky Nazis then the next day you can't say anything against gays or any form of leftists ideology.

    Those who weren't here few years ago when Gamergate started certain mods did everything in power to remove any post or topic referring to it.

    It didn't have anything to do with Nazis, white supremacist or niggers but their ideology was under attack so they retaliated.

    Putting any control of freedom of speech is just opening the door for a slow purge of people certain moderators will find unwanted, or better said people who don't share their beliefs.

    And then you will end up with yet another Resetera.

    I challenge DarkUnderlord to a duel over the ownership of Codex. I will cover the cost of flight to Australia myself. We will fight 1v1 with melee weapon of your choice. The cost of your burial service is also going to be paid by me as a sign of good will.

    The Codex is not a democracy. It is probably best described as an autocracy.

    Also: DU has been known to flip the poll choices if things aren't going in his favor. See above.

    So, you know ... participate in his polls at your own peril and remember the result is exactly what he wants it to be.

    At the end of the day there is always option to block users whose posts you don't want to see.

    It's a better solution then forcing your own beliefs on everyone.

    Codex used to be an aristocracy with mods like JarlFrank

    Now it's tyrannical judeocracy.

    You're incredibly weird.

    Believe it or not, of all the active Codex staff members, I'm probably the one who has the least to do with what's going on currently

    We all know people who want "political discussions" forbidden aren't interested in merely not being personally affected by it (negatively or positively), they want others to be punished for it or limited in some sense. It isn't about convenience, justice or whatever.

    As for DU, he probably just doesn't want Codex to get "bad reputation" for discussions herein, and wants to preemptively ban them so that he be spared retaliation from Twitter or whatever. An understandable position, if a bit pathetic.

    Better enforce stronger and clearer rules in non-GD forums. You don't want people to say the "n-word"? Then clearly state so in the rules and enforce it. Don't want people to speak badly about Jews? Say so. Instead of this frankly childish and tiresome kwetching about what should be done.

    Where's that black man who said "online harassment? move away from the screen bitch!", because goddamn. There are countless threads with innumerable insults, lies and propaganda against Islam here, and even calls for genocide of Muslims (hi irenaecuck), on account of that in some countries this whole site would be purged out of existence and everyone arrested for "hate crime". Grow the hell up people.

    And lastly, again, Codex isn't nearly as influential in any way, either for or against the right or the left. There's like couple of dozens users who frequently post in GD. Wow much extremism there. How out of touch with outside world one has to be to think Codex in any way has any influence on real societies? Overblown as usual.
