    Not because someone criticized what they perceive as too "black or white" and you agreed with that criticism. But because you made the snarky comment that "Nuance is nothing but another form of propaganda".

    That was nothing less than an attack on the diarist. You might as well have ended that sentence with "Nuance is nothing but another form of propaganda for Ray." And that is an ad hominem attack, right at the top of the thread.

    And according to the parameters set up by the site administrators, apparently, that makes you a dick. Who knew.

    As for the critique itself, I disagree. Somethings aren't nuanced. Trying to figure out what precisely constitutes probable cause can be pretty nuanced.

    Just recording everything every one says and writes and looks at on the internet is not nuanced. It is a direct attack on our democracy and our rights.
