|still it's his opinion and it's a legitimate opinion|
Having an opinion does not legitimize that opinion.
|He can have his own opinions.|
Of course he can.
|So you should expect that.|
I expect not to be blasted with garbage speech on this forum. I have already explained how most
forums explicitly prohibit hate speech, and though this forum does not explicitly
proscribe it, it does ask for civil discourse and warn that uncouth language can get your posts deleted and your account banned.
|Being bigoted is not the same as being a troll.|
I didn’t call him a troll.
|People who legitimately believe in something should not be judged.|
Bull pucky. That’s exactly the kind of moronic thinking I’ve been lambasting this entire thread.
|Whether you dislike them is up to you, but there is no notion of everybody hates you.|
I’m not sure what the antecedent of your second clause is.
If you are saying everyone shouldn’t hate suyashsing234
, I agree. I don’t hate him. I dislike the language he was using.
If you are saying you think I feel put upon, then stop. I don’t.
|There are no rules in this forum about the nature of the discussions that happen in this subforum.|
Um, wrong. Try again.
I have already posted a link to the injunction for civil discourse. But since people don’t believe in clicking links, here is the full text:
|Welcome to the lounge forum in C++.com!|
In this forum, users can to talk about topics other than programming.
Feel free to participate in a constructive and polite way in any topic of this category. Messages may be deleted or moved without prior notice and may prompt the suspension of user accounts.
That is the owner’s very nice way of saying, don’t spout crap and I won’t have to discipline you.
|So we DON'T have the right to police this forum and say what's wrong and what's not wrong, rather we can suggest what's inappropriate but whether it really is inappropriate is up to the person who hosts this forum.|
It would seem that you have not been here as long as some of the rest of us. There are several hot-button topics we have all more-or-less agreed not to discuss because of the tension it causes. (Like religion.)
And the idea you cannot tell someone their language in a public forum is unacceptable is nonsense. The guy who owns cplusplus.com likes to let people handle stuff themselves, and prefers not to get involved if he can avoid it. I rather think it is because he figures we are all adults (or close enough) and can deal with stuff like adults.
|I'm not saying it's wrong to report him. It's right because this is something that is likely to be considered as inappropriate.|
So, ask yourself, what exactly are you trying to contribute to this thread? More derailment? An apologism?
Or disagreement with my assessment of faux intellectualism permeating our society and making online forums hostile places?
Because it doesn’t read much like the latter.
