Wait a sec, I didn't say "yank the account."  I said "suspend the account."  But
"shut up you crazy fool" is not at all the same as nazi rantings, which is what
this question originally was about, as you posted it.  My intent was to say that
I wouldn't tolerate someone ranting about nazis and the like, no matter where
the post was made.

Look, let me make this clear.  If you are having a conversation with someone on
rgcc, and the fur starts to fly, you must meet certain requirements of decorum
in order to have a useful discussion, right?  If the conversation gets into a
series of one-liners regarding the holocaust, capitalist swine, and
wife-beating, then that person is denigrating himself, and would denigrate CCC
by association.  If the conversation were heated, but not "crazy" or overtly
personal in nature, then that's another story.

Look, it's a tough question, but that's where I come down.  If people want a
harder line on this sort of stuff, they'll vote for me; if not, they won't.  And
whatever the result, it's fine with me.
