she's not "bothersome"
I feel that A2K is tacitly endorsing racism by allowing her continued presence on the site.
Setting aside the question of whether or not what she writes is sickening, offensive, or simply boring, I really can't see how "allowing" her to post her comments is endorsing
them, let alone endorsing racism.
Clearly, Kraven (or whomever is running this joint) is a big proponent of free speech, and he has provided members with an effective means for not being exposed to speech which they find offensive: The ignore and thumbs down features. That he doesn't swoop in and ban speech which others find offensive is hardly endorsing that speech.
Neither you nor I are endorsing anyone's comments if we do not offer an opinion on them. The argument that we (and everyone else) do has been made by a few members, but it is a specious one.
It's been said before, but our right to free speech is most important when it protects speech that offends.
I think that sometimes we forget that we are but guests in this forum. For some it has become something of a community for which they have become possessive and protective, but no one pays to post and no one is required to perform tasks in order to have the privilege.
I'm sure there are discussion sites wherein monitors determine whether or not something someone has posted can be considered offensive and censor speech accordingly. Such determinations are biased. The strength and nature of the bias will vary, but its highly unlikely that in a discussion forum not intended to operate as a members-only club for very like-minded people, everyone will agree on what can and cannot be posted.
Better to do as Kraven has done. Allow all speech but provide participants with a means to shield themselves from the speech they find offensive. This is an approach that is entirely without bias (unless the bias is the value of free speech). If he bans one opinion or one topic, why wouldn't he ban others?
There is plenty of crap that I find offensive on and in TV, radio, newspapers and the movies. If I don't like it, the best way for me to deal with it is to not watch, listen to, or read it.
