    I can't answer that.
    The site owners did it.
    Above my pay grade.

    I've no issue with it though.

    I hope that was when you were young, otherwise that sounds kinda creepy.

    Free speech in action. Without it you wouldn't know what others were thinking. Works pretty good.

    Not trying to be insulting only slightly snarky and condescending. Looks like I fail all around. Sorry the arshole in me came out too much.

    You have to weight that against the member base which I would argue is not adverse to controversy and are staunch supporters of freedom of speech (in the informal sense). If a forum loses a sponsor that is bad, but if it lose it's members then the adspace is worthless.

    No one wants participate on a boring forum, and having some discord is part of that. As long as it's there's no personal attacks (allowing for the ocasional ad hominime as it just makes the one using it look dumb), and it's a mostly civil discorse then the owner of offensive opions is more helpful that hurtful.


    :facepalm:
