    Of course. And I guess you consider manic's avatar to "demonstrates hostility towards the victim's disability" where you are the victim, especially when viewed in conjunction with the handle "manic", and as such is a form of hate speech towards a protected group.

    i disagree.

    Thanks NotAllThere

    Your answer instils me with a degree of confidence in the way you go about your moderating.

    You've gone off on a slight tangent with respect to "hate speech". I was thinking more of indirect discrimination. My exchange with Manic was actually quite friendly. The reason why we are talking about it on this thread is someone brought it up as something that I might get banned for and I thought a decision like that could be challenged as discriminatory. A number of the legal tests would have been checked: an offensive joke has been made with reference to a protected group and I am being made to feel unwelcome for pointing that out (or even banned).

    I understand that the attitude to rude posts is different on "General" but one's avatar gets posted in all quarters. Apparently the other boards are meant to be "professional". I'm pretty sure if I raised this in a workplace it would be dealt with but to be honest I'm more interested in the debate than complaining.

    You wouldn't get banned for being offended or objecting to an avatar. NLUK was talking somewhat testicularly. If you were, for example, to go on about the avatar instead of following the route I suggested, then you might get banned for trolling.

    Basic rule - do not upset the moderators. For they are quick to anger and not very subtle. Nor above stealing other's jokes.

    Good to see you back.

    If I might use a gardening simile here, without you, the dungheap that constitutes the Bremainiac contingent hereabouts would be deprived of the biggest weed growing out of it.

    Especially when you consider that Mrs sas has clearly been tinkering with the parental controls on his laptop again!

    You might use a simile, but you didn't That's a metaphor, you cretin.

    simile
    /ˈsɪmɪli/

    noun
    a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind, used to make a description more emphatic or vivid

    Or then again, maybe I did.

    If you weren't so triggered you might have realised. Still, you never were very bright.
