Sometimes I weep for humanity,
Looks like the usual boneheaded stupidity is reigning over there again. While the mods are happy to jump upon the original poster (who admits he was being a little mischevious and tongue in cheek), they do nothing to quell the anti-religious rhetoric there.
It seems as if the predictable and the "norm" views are accepted but when a person challenges the status quo or points out an issue that another poster disagrees with and resorts to single word replies or something tantamount to "religion is shit", "I'm not a christian but...", the mods do not tick them off. **
One poster does challenge THG at this point but completely deflates it by saying "they do an excellent job" and another states that this community has "less wank". Well, for the record most of the wank (or oppositional discourse, shall we say) gets deleted. Anything remotely resembling a challenge or deconstruction sees the poster banned or his comments deleted.
Still, nice to see THG is being consistent as per the norm....
How long must this go on for I wonder? Even though the mods have installed another maintainer, there is no external balance or redress and no voice for those who have been banned or bullied or censored.
On a lighter note - I did enjoy Vampires in Venice last night but there were a few pacing issues. Some lovely tidbits of what is to come though. I think the Moff is going for a full reboot - and not just for Nu-Who either. Mondasian Cybermen anyone and proper Skaro-sian daleks? Oooh, the excitement!
** I am an atheist, for the record. I have no religious (or political) affiliation but I do believe in freedom of speech and the ability to express one's views without being censored or lambasted for my belief.
