Default The Beard Man Issue...

Should he be un-banned or what....
this is not about whether you like or dislike the guy but about if there are limits to what he can say on BE...

since the outcome will determine if he can come back or not, I have not included the 'I don't care' option...

Is this supposed to be a poll, as you have forgotten to add it.

I find him offensive (particularly today's comments) and all he can do is witter on about religion and why everyone who does not agree with his beliefs is wrong. If that is what he wants to discuss then there are plenty of places to discuss religious issues. He does not make this board a better place in any way - quite the opposite.



Ah - poll now added.

ridiculing the holocaust is pretty unforgivable, in my opinion.

I agree that he over stepped the mark, again though i dont think he should be banned but i do believe he should be warned. I think we all need to remember what this site is about and why it is here...

Default Re: The Beard Man Issue...

Its now neck and neck!!!

When does the poll close?

I also think that maybe a bit harsh on his beardy ness, not a fan of his one dimensional view on everything, and asking if you are a Jew if you happen to believe in the holocaust... But maybe, just maybe, he will take on board some comments... He may not all told, but thats life... He is entitled to his opinions...

Use the ignore...

Don't entice him.

His opinion and beliefs to me opitomise 'what lies beneath' the glitz and glam of this place.

Keep him as a reminder of this

It's a tricky one but I've got to go with freedom of speech.

I have now calmed down.

I think i may have acted in haste and think he should have had a warning.

That does not stop me despising him and his 'oh i'm only asking questions' demeanor. The man is a zealot, a racist and a misogynist who is on a mission to convert all.

I loathe him but think i feel stronger about freedom of speech. Can we just sinbin him?
