Post: A postscript to "what happened to me"

Post: Well that was some fast back-tracking by Facebook

I know. I know, I know. I went too far. I should have just reported the facts and got my stupid ass out of there. I forget just what a different world I live in now to most people. I wonder if I shoul...

Post: RE: PSA: Hate Speech

Why would you have to censor a word when simply discussing the word? What kind of person would get mortally offended seeing the word written in full, but can survive if there’s a star in the middle? I...

The thing is, they can’t just admit that this rule is solely aimed at one particular word which I’m not allowed to say. That in itself would be racist, because it’s providing "protection" to one group...
