Ban on racist postings
« on: 12 June 2019, 11:38:53 PM »
I'm enjoying the site and the forums...but not the anti-muslim posts. Only a tiny percentage of Muslims support terrorism....and they would have the same proportion of rapists as we, or any other community, have.

If you spot any, report the post. Admins don't have time to read every post/thread on the site so need help from everyone else to stop this.

Totally agree with you.  Some of the posts have been pretty outrageous.   Most of that shit I think was in the BREXIT thread – which has since been locked.

There was "The Naughty Corner" for anything that shouldn't be seen on the main forums. As it's description suggests.
Perhaps new users posting such content haven't found it yet?

As a fact - I've been on the receiving end of racism (as a white British male, in the wonderful "Great" Britain). Unfortunately in 2019 I would be classed as being racist, just by telling my story!

Some people get opinion and fact mixed up.

Who are you trying to convince.
