    well, now you're asking too much: that website is known to have only dull and unimaginative active users, no humor in there.

    No. No. No.
    It is voluntary.

    Don't join a voluntary game and then demand the rules be changed to suit yourself.
    That is the behavior of a SELFISH ASSHOLE.
    Let others enjoy their games.
    Go find a different game to play.

    There should be a petition against the name change.
    This is childish.
    the business has become successful with its original name.
    If you don't like the name of the business... Don't use the service of the business...
    Don't cry because it offends you..
    Grow up.

    If my name was "Harrold (Harry) Nutz".
    I would not change it because you were offended.
    Id tell you to mind your business and cry in a corner.

    So maybe i am behaving like an asshole for my position on freedom of speech?

    I think NOT.
    A few thousand years of brutal lessons are behind the ideas about the importance of free speech and control of language by those who seek to control PEOPLE.

    FIRST and most important is to protect and defend freedom of speech.
    Certain exceptions and compromises are appropriate, as NO principle is perfect.

    And so, while we ought to obey law, we ought never sacrifice our speech without a demand of law.

    Fuck off, to those who don't know history of who can't understand the implications.
    The laws we have in the west were written by those who know history and understand the implications of the loss of freedom of speech, and more specifically the THREATS that inhibit free speech.
    That is why freedom of speech ought be protected with threat of violence (as far as law allows...currently the limit is loss of physical freedom). There were times and places when and where it was appropriate and necessary to defend freedom of speech with actual violence we call "war".

    I think i can fairly say that i am a "nice" person, but i will NOT ignore the implications of "being nice" to those who wish to OWN me, and that IS what it means to control another person's speech.

    If you ask about "moderators" and websites ...
    They are "private property" with regard to content, and it it their right by law to control the speech in their website. It is NOT an infringement of anyone's free speech because engaging with the website is voluntary.
    So, don't cry when your shit gets removed (and i won't cry if THIS is.)

    It is not "childish". It is DANGEROUS.
    It's fine to joke around, but it is a serious issue.
    So, maybe it's childish like when a child gets hold of a gun....

    That didn't take long to get rejected and be described as "you are part of the problem"

    Let us be frank. He is changing the name for only one reason. Money.
    He is afraid of losing all the support and money from advertisement, a spineless, dick move.

    the only reason that forum exists in the first place is because of money. I can’t believe that I have to point that out tbh but it looks like you missed something very important in our capitalist society. Or don’t you care about money?

    i actually agree, by jules moronic drivel in his totally irrelevant postings you could very early see he doesn't care about the issue .

    he, the freaking owner gratuitously facilitated it all to become a sort of holy grail for all sorts of undercover bigots misogynists and general assholes spreading totally nonsensical not even related hate on that thread and let that spatter allover his business.


    great job Jules!

    “Political correctness is America's newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people's language with strict codes and rigid rules. I'm not sure that's the way to fight discrimination. I'm not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech.”

    the problem with your misguided quotation is Carlin wanted to go even deeper and change the structures on which discrimination rest upon. Its a critique from a radical point of view!

    so using it in the sense that he somehow promoted insulting people for free, then you are totally altering the intent and his deep ideological care and struggle for regular people.

    Ah yeah, the good old: "Leftist and pc snowflakes are the real threat of our society."

    Meanwhile every major country is run by anti sjw's/anti pc conservatives, rightwingers or racist idiots who are turning this planet into a shithole.
