I believe this thread violates that ...[text shortened]... hess. For example in anther recent thread you can find:
You lying little bugger.
Amazing, just amazing. For the record this thread was my restrained response to this post by Duchess (which is really just representative of hundreds of similar posts in the last few months alone):
duchess: The pathological liar No1Marauder keeps lying as usual. It's amusing that No1Marauder
seems eager for a trolling alliance with Robbie Carrobie, who rejects the theory of evolution.
So what's the deal? If Robbie Carrobie keeps hurling more abuse and lies at me,
will No1Marauder repay his favors by writing some posts supporting creationism?
No1Marauder's lying about what he wrote in arguing with KazetNagorra and me about physics.
Only extremely gullible fools (No1Marauder's target audience) would accept that the
arrogant lawyer No1Marauder knows more than KazetNagorra about modern physics.
Apparently, No1Marauder now retracts his earlier (grudging) acceptance that I am a woman.
So does No1Marauder also insist I MUST BE WHITE, as he has claimed?
WHEN CAN NO1MARAUDER CITE THE EVIDENCE THAT HE CLAIMS TO HAVE
OBSERVED IN MY PRIOR POSTS THAT I MUST BE WHITE?
NO1MARAUDER'S CLAIM THAT I MUST BE WHITE IS BASED ONLY ON HIS RACIAL PREJUDICE.
This thread violates the TOS sufficiently that you feel like complaining about it but those types of posts (there's dozens more just like it on this Forum in the last few days alone) earn no condemnation from you?
The supposed "harassment" of this thread would have been to turn vicious, attack posts into innocuous humorous ones. I can see why that is sooooooooooooooooooooooo outrageous but hundreds of incessant insulting posts targeting several dozen different contributors to this Forum are not.
