i dont quite understand what you are banning here.
A bigot. I thought that was pretty obvious.

and this happened in another venue???
Nope. This all happend right here on the stp discord which is directly linked to the website.

You saying you feel its uncouth of us to provide proof for everyone to see when we ban a bigot?

i dont quite understand what you are banning here. its not the words- you showed the words. its not the swastika- you showed that, too. and this happened in another venue??? im openly pro trump on twitter... am i gonna be banned?

im not saying i agree with the guy or that im a nazi... im just curious.

oh, and digging up pics of the guy just to post them in here to shame him (or something).... very uncouth.
Whoa.. with a statement like that I don't even know if it's possible to break this down in a way that you'll understand/accept. Nor do I feel it's even worth putting a whole lot of energy into, but I'll take a very simplistic stab at it I guess.

You.. are aware of what Nazi's stand for right? You're familiar with the atrocities they put people through? You've read a little history before right? Ok so take that, and understand that we're 100% not down for bigotry/hatred around here mkay? We've made that point before, right?

So, when someone gets a symbol of hatred/bigotry/oppression blasted right over their heart that symbolizes so much of what we're opposed to.. that doesn't really jive here, obviously. Obviously?

You know we're absolutely welcoming and supportive of people of color and homosexuality etc, right? Like we don't want to kill Jews and black people, or Asians, Mexicans, Romanians, etc. We don't feel some sense of superiority over them based on skin tone and whatnot. That's not too difficult to grasp is it?

We don't hate people for dating the same sex, that's just not our jam. So, when a guy says he "doesn't jive with the homos" and has symbols of hatred forever etched into his skin.. well.. he's just not welcome here. It's kind of as simple as that.

Are we going to ban you for being pro Trump? No. You're not going into find a whole lot of people around here who see things the way you do, but we won't ban you strictly for that. We're just not going to let people spread their hate here.

Is any of this getting through or falling on deaf ears? Do we gotta go through the entire history, set up a power point presentation, show you some disturbing imagery and all that or is this good enough?

Also what is your logic? "It's not the words, you showed the words" ? Yeah, just because we showed the words doesn't mean we support what they stand for. We're showing the words to make the case.

banning language is an attempt at banning thought. period.
Dude, some thoughts are bad and should be banned. Cause they lead to action, which is bad, and should be banned.
You can't just have an intelligent enlightening conversation with someone that's full of enough deep seated hate to kill you over your skin. That shits not logical to begin with.

While I agree with this statement in most situations, I mainly hear that statement, when it comes down to fascism and racism, come from 3%, thin blue line, proud boy type people.

I have never got along with those people. They use free speech as some sort of thin veil for their pent up fascist, racist views.

Free speech is wonderful. It protects you from being punished by the government for speech.

It also gives others the right to choose which speech they want to hear, or surround themselves with.

That is what we are doing here.

You're probably wasting your time talking about any of that, this is a really big part of their self image.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
