I have to ask then, all of this considered... what is wrong with using the ignore button?

Because someone is bound to quote him. Many community members have encouraged ignoring him. However, some are prone to peek or are new and have no idea what is about to transpire. Then someone sees a quoted post, attacking them, their wife, their sex, or their race, and we're off to the races. Or it could all start from a simple counterpoint to one of his more "sane" posts attacking BTC and devolve from there.

It sounds to me that this is just a consequence of everyone being free to speak, and the response is verging on obsessive levels of wanting to control the speech of others. Just because what he has to say is repugnant, annoys you, or you find it distracting is really not an excuse for all of this. If everyone is free to speak there will always be people saying things objectionable to you, and no matter what you say some one out there will find it objectionable. This is just human nature, the first amendment need not even come into the equation.

Well, what V8 gave the negative rating was actually about a false allegation realr0ach made on a fellow member. I guess in your view, false allegations are ok as long as they aren't made on the hallowed trust comment page.

Just because I don't agree with a negative rating for it doesn't mean I condone it. For example I would consider a neutral trust rating with a reference for this perfectly acceptable. If the roles were reversed no one would give a shit, but some people are more equal than others.

Well V8 did change another one of his ratings to neutral. We will see if he takes your advisement to heart. However, given a recent comment realr0ach made which basically was trying to emasculate V8, I doubt it. Especially since realr0ach's attitude on woman is that they are all morally equivalent of prostitutes.

Yeah well, as I said the cost of being free to speak yourself is some times being subjected to ideas that offend you. You are free to click ignore, or walk away from the computer at any time. This need to control the speech of others frankly scares me more than all the insane views in the world being spoken freely.

When it comes to "free speech," some of what realr0ach comes up with is light years away from any "fine line." I'd sooner make it legal for someone to yell fire in a theater.  Cheesy

Oh, sorry, I guess that makes my point totally erroneous.

Never mind that. So much chatter everywhere it's easy for the eye to slip. Pretty instructive thread all round though.
