It is not OK to punch ISIS and Al qaeda members
If ISIS and Al Qaeda wanted to hold a march calling for death to America and a fundamentalist caliphate to take over the US then any who attack them or inhibit their right to free speech are evil violent people

What do you all think about Faustian stories?
Diplomacy is a great playground for turning on friends for personal advantage, and I'm pretty sure everybody might compromise their held virtues for a little harmless gain in most places of their lives. Do you all think Faustian narratives are on point the more we all trod into the great 21st century, or is the devil obsolete and unversed in the digital age?

"New Game" page needs correction.
When creating a game and selecting the pre-phase length, the description says up to 5 days but the dropdown gives only up to 2.5 days.

Leaving the grey arrow
Is there any bigger asshole than the guy who's doomed to defeat and puts in his moves with a grey arrow so that everyone has to wait a day or more each phase? Of course everyone goes out of town sometimes or is unable to get to the site for some reason, but someone who does it faithfully every turn should be banned. It's the behavior of a crybaby.

Anarchists in the US
"if we possess any sort of freedom today in this society, it is the result of all the times people defied and overthrew governments, not because of the times they were obedient. If not for disobedience, we would still be living under the rule of kings."

It's okay to punch Nazis
I purport that it is perfectly ok to beat up the following types of people:

- Nazis - Neo-Nazis - KKK members - David Duke - White Supremacists -

It is also perfectly ok not to give a sh*t about the "free speech" of these people. Nobody has any obligation to debate with them or listen to their ideas.

Does anyone disagree with me?

Whether or not anyone thinks what you suggest might, or might not be OK, Jamiet99uk, I hold the view that this thread topic is definitely NOT what I want to see in the brave new forum with more decorum, as it advocates violence, imho.
Far better to dismiss these neo Nazis as ignorant, racist bigots. Win the "contest of ideas" with calm, rational contributions

"Nobody has any obligation to debate with them or listen to their ideas."

I agree with this statement. You're free not to listen to them but doing violence unto them is a crime. Political violence has no place in a free country.

When the "ideas" of a group can be summarised as "let's kill and/or persecute the blacks, the jews and the gays", I do not wish to engage in a "contest of ideas" with that group.

We literally already fought a World War over this crap.

Actually it is not okay. Every American in the United States has the freedom of speech and assembly. You are threatening violence on an entire group of people and also disenfranchising them of their constitutional rights.

You (myself included) may not agree with their speech, but in America they have a right to say it.

It's also possible that you, jamiet99uk, are falling into a response strategy that suits these types of extremist groups. Extremists like to polarise the debate, to reduce the discussion to simplistic propaganda, and to drown out any voices of moderate, sensible views. Their "stock in trade" is hate speech, so it suits them to reduce the discussion to a slanging match, in which volume and outrageous and offensive barbs count for more than calm reason.

"because my views might upset the KKK"

Your views are not the issue here. The issue is the supposed open incitement of violence. From what I'm reading here I don't think you are Jamie but, the mods may take it that way.

@ND: My position is that they should *not* have the right to freely advocate for the genocide of non-white people. It is not just ok, but right and proper, to prevent them from espousing those views, that programme.

Don't you get it Jamiet99uk ? If you get expelled, it will be because you are offending the moderates. WebDiplomacy is NOT the home of the KKK

Plus the forum at WebDiplomacy is not the USA. This is a website, not the public arena of a particular nation state.

Some of us actually have jobs to do, and I don't particularly like wasting my time with shit like this.

No, it's not ok to threaten or condone or "purport" violence on my site. I've made this abundantly clear.

Jamiet, if you can't follow the rules, you shouldn't be here. This has to be the fourth or fifth time I have addressed you specifically on this issue. I've silenced you until you can agree to abide by the rules or leave the site.

@MM: Well, I am offended by "moderates" who think that when an ACTUAL F*CKING NAZI stands up, gives a Nazi salute, and says "kill the blacks and jews", the correct response is to say "hmm, yes, I don't agree but I respect your right to hold that view".

I do NOT respect their right to hold that view.
