1-0-0 just publicly attacked me for making a legitimate post and I want to defend myself, (MOD EDIT: That post is HERE)

Yes, I was banned from SOCN a couple years ago.  After many years hanging out there and untold thousands of post I was suspended 2 or 3 times.. Once for calling out bigotry against an attack against an atheist.   And the other was for defending an attack against Neil in GenPop by a LABT who hates him because of his political beliefs and I called it out.  I gladly took that one.

But everyone who ever posted in SOCN knows there was always a double standard against liberals by 1-0-0 and the mods.   Every liberal that posted there was constantly personally assaulted and the mods turned a blind eye because obviously they felt they deserved it.  Hell, I was even Doxxed and the mods did nothing.

The mods let the conservatives get away with 8 years of spewing never ending racism against Obama.  There was endless birther conspiracies and attacks for being Muslim and so on. There was always some racist posts from the attacks on Muslims (NY mosque) to present day Trump racist propaganda.   No one was ever called out once for posting and promoting that racist garbage. Ever.

I was banned for suggesting that some posters motives might be racism.   Imagine that!  I mean, it was obviously true, but still!  

And also, since Trump we have a wealth of social science that actually proves I was right.  What I said was a fact.  I can post endless material supporting that conclusion as we look at people’s identities. (See:Lilliana Mason)

Other than to see old friends when Neil passed away I could care less about this place. Like the other liberals I moved on long before the ban and rarely posted as it was.  This was a legitimate reference To Rush that could be posted on any other a rush forum, but once again, if it hints at anything negative to conservatives it is taboo.

What a joke.  Some things never change.   The first rule of Rush Club is don’t talk about a Rush, especially if people might find out they were atheists and progressives and abhorred bigots.  They get banned.  

1-0-0 will delete this I am sure.   But it is a fact.  We both know it.  Everyone I talked to when I came back in PM’s agreed. You can claim to be fair but you allowed endlessly bigotry and attacked those who confronted it.   You can live with that, my conscious is clear,

What kind of mushrooms do you consume before talking politics? I'd like to know so I can avoid them should I ever get into mushrooms. Or politics.

And as far as "Everyone I talked to when I came back in PM’s agreed," umm, how many people is "everyone," like, two? Your only two sympathizers in SOCN? Is that supposed to affect me in some way?

I'm sure you're aware of what the SOCN rules state about bringing conflicts from that section out to the rest of the board, like you're doing here?

I don`t think anyone has ever had their mind changed about fundamentals like religion or politics in an internet forum, and the principle for most interactions should be

a) Try not to offend
b) Try even harder not to be offended

Whenever I see or hear political or religious propoganda it instantly passes through my bullshit filter quicker than taco bell through my colon. Unfortunately, people that believe this swill are putting the psychopaths into positions of power. I exercise my duty to vote but I've come largely apathetic about it since I know I'm just one vote in a sea of millions. If people want to follow the collective stupidity that's ruining this world, then there's not much I can do to stop them.

As to the original post...think before you speak, but words are just words. Most people that get punched in the nose had it coming.
