Can I just clarify what the situation is with the word "nazi"? I'm sure there was a thread ages ago where it was said that it shouldn't be used.

Hi rags, No it shouldn't be used but I can't remember if it was a banned word.

Perhaps Ben will clarify.

It's not just individual words, it the general context and repetitive nature of the abuse, like this sort of thing.

lol the nazi still trying to excuse it speaks of the territories which are controlled by the Palestinian authorities, not Israel, so nice try nazi scum, but you are a lying twat

It's just the same thing day after day.

Perhaps you could all find ways of communicating that don't require you calling eachother names?

It's just a thought.

Well as this forum allows blatant antisemitism and does zero about it, I think its high time that admin did something about how racism is being allowed freely on here to stand

So if something is posted with intent of hate against Jews it will be reported as I am sick of the left wing bias allow racism to stand on here

For too long that racist scum gets away with murder

Only after being abused several times. Didge is abusive as soon as anyone posts if he doesn't agree with them. He even got abusive on a thread about shoes versus boots. I'm going to report him every time he does it now - he's disrupting the forum.

I don't often agree with Sassy, but this "nazi scum" business is getting very old and tired, and I think it should stop.

I don't care what she buys, you shouldn't be so abusive all day, every day, and it's time someone said so.

I see you've had to water down the abuse now that you've been pulled up for your sexism. That's a start ...

This is the situation. In debates, if you are even the slightest bit rude or obnoxious to me, I will not respond to you at all. If you get too abusive, I'm just report your posts. The choice is yours. Don't bother to troll or spam in order to get me to reply to you - just be polite, and maybe I will.

It wasn't.  If 'nazi' were to be banned then we would have to consider all other words of historical significance that have taken on a contemporary, colloquial meaning.  Did you know that 'Left' amounts to a loan-translation of French la gauche (1791)...where progressives sat on the left-hand side in the Parliamentary seating, conservatives on the right.  Now we hear it as 'lefty', in use all the time on this site.  Should we ban it just because it's unfriendly?

That is what we will get if we start banning historically legitimate terms.  Frankly, I'm against banning any term.  How could we discuss etymology if we ban terms; it's not the term that is bad, but the use of it.  What we are really saying is we don't want animosity on this site.

Well I have never abused you but you have called me a name on here.

Obviously, nobody meant it should be banned per se. It's just that it's bandied around rather a lot as a term of abuse on this forum.

No I didn't, I said you liked slutty talk.

If you want to overlook Didge's relentless, daily abuse on here, that's up to you, but I'll report him if he goes too far.

Rags I'm not going to argue with you, that was not what you said.

I'm not ignoring anybody's "abusive posts" But I can't see all posts everywhere and if a post is abusive it should be reported.

Yes it is what I said - or words to that effect.

I know you can't see all posts, that's why I'll report him if he gets abusive.

Lots of words are used metaphorically, and some in a bad way. That's the problem with censorship...it's not the word that intends the insult, it's the person.

To ban words is to ban metaphor...which is the basic device by which language grows and evolves. See, eg, Metaphors We Live By, George Lakoff and Mark Johnson (1980).

Yes, but when someone chases another member around the forum calling them "nazi scum" all the time, it gets a bit much - wouldn't you agree? After all, you keep saying you don't like people talking about other posters in a negative manner.

In all of your examples it's not the word or metaphor that is offensive.  It's the animosity.  That relates to the attitude of the person.  You don't penalize words for the anger of people.

Perhaps Ben will clarify.

Same with 'leftie', 'communist' and 'regressive'.  These are words of derogation, merely intended to insult...which is prohibited.

I look forward to cleaner, more refreshing exchanges in the future...as if! Rolling Eyes

I think you might have missed the point Quill, so never mind eh?

Looking back, I continually amaze even myself. I think the point was spot on: Words don't insult people, people insult people.

I can cope pretty well storm. I have days when I have Pms coming thick and fast and I don't always see every single thing on a forum.
I just can't please everybody, all of the time.

Oh and it's not my life either.
I have that outside of the forum.
