    I don't even know what a kike is....

    Anyway, concerning bans, it might be a good idea to also provide an information about ban length on the user block & profile.
    As well as a reason.
    Might help prevent speculation reaching absurd levels. Plus it offers a good opportunity for further ridicule.

    All I asked was why there have been so many bannings, and for you to make some kind of a statement about what's going on. I never said I expect you to sacrifice yourself for my right to use abusive language. Nor did I insult you or any other members of staff. I've been critical of the changes in moderation policy, that's not the same as being abusive to admins.

    I now understand the reasoning behind the changes, but I still think you're mishandling this. You can't control Australian law. Everyone understands that. But we've all noticed this place going down the shitter for a while now and whenever anyone asks what the fuck is happening all we've had is passive aggressive ratings from admins and mods. No acknowledgement of the issue, let alone any explanation.

    You've made no announcements about changes to free speech policies on the site. Oh sure you've posted about it in the middle of a thread that's tens of pages long, and I've seen that now and know where your coming from. If you'd said that was going on sooner people would have been a lot more understanding instead of being left to speculate and defaulting to blaming the Jews.

    Nobody expects you to die on a hill for them, get sued or go to jail. Nobody asked you to break the law either.

    If you took any of my postings as a personal attack then I apologize. I don't know you and have no personal issue with you or anyone on staff.

    Edited to remove unnecessary snarkiness.

    As a person from country that provided Israel with 91 millions of machinegun bullets to shoot Egyptian soldiers and UK officers, I can safely tell you it means Jews.

    I think it might be a description of group of Jews in traditional clothes going to synagogue, or other Jew related stuff. (At least it was likely original meaning before it become profaned.) Aka when you see group of Jews going to school, you say group of Jews. If you see them obviously going to do theirs community stuff you could use the above word, well you could use it before it become profaned word.

    Thank you for banning Ontopoly the arch-racist and highest ranking person on FBI's most wanted terrorist list. He just wouldn't stop writing the n-word online and you might have narrowly avoided a drone strike for associating with such persons. Unless the «two day» ban is like the «limited» ban Kalin and others received in the past you might want to consider making the ban permanent for personal safety reasons. We can't have foul mouthed racists like Ontopoly around defaming Larian Jews.

    I just knew multicultural country like US would invent some derogatory term. But I thought it originated before the "entry-forms" incident.

    If he had simply deleted his posts like any other user can do, there would have been no problem and he'd still be an admin, but he deleted them from the database, an abuse of his power. Can't walk that back.

    I could understand why though. That's as far as I'm going to say.

    This is probably a popularity contest who gets the most posts in his ban thread.
    Needless to say i choose Ontopoly.

    I'm no fan of Ontopoly, but why can't we separate the risk of actual legal injury from injury to ego?

    Incorporate the Codex elsewhere.
