    There are constant and regular threads in this forum which spout bigotry over religion, race, culture, gender, and others, which are allowed to remain open...

    Why was the IQ thread closed?

    I didn't pay close attention to that thread (I had no doubt that IQ is at least partly inherited). But it seemed to stray far away from the original topic.

    the title in itself says it does not belong in a political forum........I didn't waste my time with it because it just sounded stupid

    Was it State who started it? He can be kinda cryptic sometimes, but he seemed to think this was a hot topic, along the lines of whether gays are born gay or not. But it wasn't and I'd agree with you.

    It got closed cuz Patters didn't like it. If it got closed cuz it's not "political", then why do we have a Michael Jackson thread going, or a sun is out thread? I don't mind either, as I'm just trying to make a point.

    Somebody said Asians were smarter than white people
    (they probably are, who gives a sh!t) it's good though to see somebody stick up for the White Bastards once in awhile........................:D

    By occasionally closing threads and occasionally deleting individual posts, the hope is to discourage people from personal attacks. As far as the bigoted threads go, I'm still struggling with the right way to do it, but in general what I'm trying to do is close threads that are both bigoted and filled with personal attacks. It's not a perfect system, but hopefully provides a little disincentive for people to violate the rules.

    Thank you for closing my 'a new begining of gay USA' thread. What is your definition of 'bigot'?

    I think you should contact Ian and complain that your right to free speech is being violated by a liberal moderator. ;)
