Out of curiosity, just on the internet or have you been an asshole to someone you perceive to be a bigot in person?

I’d be interested to see that.

Are you unfamiliar with nuance, dingaling.

There is none. I've stated over and over again that platforms are well within their rights to do whatever the fook they want sleeping
My statement was in a broader societal sense, not specific to any specific platform.

Claiming authoritarianism is moronic.

You don't know what authoritarianism is.

When you take it upon yourself to deem what content is appropriate for the public and make moves to delete, silence, and prevent that content from being aired, yes, that is authoritarian. Especially when you are self appointed, and take additional steps to further silence that person or institution.

People like Maza are doing exactly that on multiple fronts, and are proud of the fact that they are doing so.

Like I've said a billion times, private enterprises are free to do so. What I have a problem with are self appointed individuals who think they have the right to decide what content I should be able to patronize. There is nothing more undemocratic than that trout

No bigot perceives himself as a bigot.

In fact, "I'm not a racist" is always a first thing a racist would say when accused of being a racist -and then proceeds to say racist things. shrug

Totally true!

ElOgro hasn't been exonerated of bigotry lately.

It’s troubling. I was ilked early on by our resident expert on bigotry, homophobia, etc. I don’t see any exoneration in the cards.

Didn’t understand the question?

Are you an asshole to people you perceive as bigots in person? Or just when you’re flapping the keyboard? Both?

I don't say anything here that I wouldn't say to a bigot in real life.

GTFO with your "perception" game. roflmao

The problem is that these cowards never do it in real life because there are real consequences if they behaved like that at work or school or public space.

I'm not afraid, they are.

On a rare occasion when I came across people like that, yes.

As I said, bigots like to cower, they don't like the consequences their behavior brings in real life.

But posting anonymously on the internet makes these shitheads brave.
