The current situation here is ridiculous, our administration appears to be in voluntarily house arrest to avoid upsetting the least contributing, least objective group that has the pleasure of inhabiting the forum.
Legitimate debates - usually between people from the right and left of the political spectrum - are hijacked and turned into hate sessions by this small but vocal group of people and whats more our management will not agree to discourage this behavior even by deleting posts.
Just because some people can't understand the difference between what is a biological or a social factor does not mean racism and homophobia are legitimate views to hold. These people are eroding legitimate discussions between people that actually come here for legitimate debate. If our management isn't prepared to outright ban racism and homophobia the least they can do it to create a dedicated section where people are allowed to express their bigoted homophobic and racist views, and have them banned in all other sections.
If we're going to allow this crap for the vague excuse of "freedom of speech" then we should also allow people to discuss and prepare terrorist activities and organized crime.
Sensible people from the right, the left and the center should be able to agree that this kind of crap is eroding constructive debate and contributes to an unattractive culture that discourages people of ethnic minorities and homosexual orientation to join the forum.
EDIT: And yeah I realize I posted this in the wrong section, hopefully it won't be long till it's moved.
