You said: "The same thing can be said about Bantu-Kelani: she threatened to ban me from this message board when she was running out of proper arguments, and that's what I would call abuse! I thought this was a reasoning board, I didn't know it was a teasing board: as soon as you don't agree with the moderators they threaten to ban you!'
I knew you were going to come with another puerile argument/distortion. Instead of looking and reflecting on your own poor conduct you want to impute that someone wanted to ban you for your views or lack thereof in my opinion.
"Checkmate", give me a break. You have not put forward one point that I did not expand on this board previously.
The difference is that I KNOW that education is supposed to improve conduct and when I see people willing to step outside the bounds of reason to resort to bullying tactics, distractions, distortions and slander then I know that is the END of reasoning.
Should tolerance of opposing views give you the right to demean and slander? No! And that is the rule of the website.
Is that denying some their views? YES!
Not any conduct and every conduct is acceptable or should be acceptable.
