    But I also blame the Jews. Yes...I am blaming the Jews on this one as well. Orthodox Jews made a pact with the devil and supported a teabagger over one of their own all because they hate gays.

    That doesn't fly. Blanket statements like that are bigoted, anti-semitic and have no place on this site. Maybe you should consider not coming back from your 'boycott' at all.

    Jesus Christ.

    •  to be sure I am clear; you are suggesting a person (0+ / 0-)

      be banned from a site because of one statement, no matter what the history of that person on this site or his other contributions or his length of time here?  That would seem to smack of a purity test of some sort

      •  No, (8+ / 0-)

        I'm suggesting that if that's the way the diarist really feels about the JOOOZ then maybe he go somewhere else of his own free will.

        We don't need that kind of drivel.

      •  campionrules didn't mention banning.... (7+ / 0-)

        You're the only one that has used that word.

        He simply stated that perhaps the individual consider not returning...two very different things.

        ...though nice try at deflection.

        Wonders are many, but none so wonderful as man.

        •  but with the same result (0+ / 0-)

          whether with a bum's rush or just a whispered suggestion from the bouncer, in either case you are excluded from the bar.  So while it may be more genteel to suggest someone not return vs screaming for someone's banishment, the end result is the same and that is what is questioned, the desired end result

        Or do you feel that Kos's rules are meant to be broken? I get what you are saying, but enforcing website rules is hardly a purity test.

        •  enforcing rules? What rules are being broken (0+ / 0-)

          and if there are any being broken, can Kos not enforce them?  Since MB departed, it seems in some cases the site has lost its collective mind

            I was objecting to you saying just become someone does something once, that shouldn't be bannable because that is like a purity test. To refresh you memory, this is what I was responding to:
            to be sure I am clear; you are suggesting a person be banned from a site because of one statement, no matter what the history of that person on this site or his other contributions or his length of time here?  That would seem to smack of a purity test of some sort

            So I was saying yes, one statement can get you banned as there is no 3 strikes in breaking site rules. I didn't say anyone was breaking rules, which that is just you putting words into my mouth so maybe you see if you've lost your own mind before you accuse whole groups of others of having lost their mind.

            •  I was unaware that one remark constituted (0+ / 0-)

              sufficient grounds for being banned, particularly when that remark is not considered in context.  Now on the other hand, you take umbrage that I asked if you were suggesting a person can be banned for one statement.  So if I am not clear on a matter, I should not ask about it?

              Then there is further umbrage at my observation that to ban someone for a single comment would seem to smack of a purity test of some sort.  Now exactly what is offensive to observe that some action would seem or appear to be in some ways indicative of a purity test?  Are observations now verboten?  

              In short it appears you are overreacting to what is, in the final analysis, my opinion based upon what I observe and perceive.  I assume I am still entitled to my own opinion?
