Greetings Mr. Man,

Yes, and the distinction is quite deliberate.

Thanks for a straightforward answer to a straightforward question. For some reason Sam did not wish to acknowledge this or was unaware.

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

As you can see, the "person" and the "idea" are clearly differentiated in the rules of the News section, and the forum-wide Terms of Service. This is a deliberate measure, which if held to, both fosters appropriate behaviours, and enables a free marketplace of ideas. Hi Paul This is what I was gett...

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

Personally I would. But I also think it should be specifically stated. Is there a reason why you don't want it to be specifically stated Sam?

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

Personal racial abuse is clearly covered. That is directed racial abuse is covered but content is not. I do not want personal racial abuse covered again. I am pointing out that posting racist content is not against the terms of service. Would you think it was "nasty"? Or a subject matter inappropri...

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

Personal racial abuse is clearly covered and in my opinion this makes the omission of a specific clause dealing with content all the more glaring. So it's clearly covered, but you want it covering again? Personal racial abuse is clearly covered. That is directed racial abuse is covered but content ...

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

It's fairly obvious that Pornography and coarse humour would be covered by 2c. Execution videos as well, which might also be illegal (?). Indeed. Hence my examples. I think what I would term racial abuse would also be fairly obviously covered by the ToS. It seems implementation is done on an ad-hoc...

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

It depends on how one construes anti-semitic, racist and misogynistic content. The fact that these can be construed differently by different individuals is a good reason for looking carefully at the ToS rather than one's own labels when deciding what to post. Hi Sam Your answer, in my opinion, does...

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

As you brought up the case of murder victim Jo Cox, I thought incitement to murder was your concern. If you state the question, I'll try to answer it. But I didn't "state the question". That's my point. Ask a question, or make a statement, preferably without getting bogged down in fruitless wrangli...

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

The question is not just whether anyone is likely to be murdered because of something posted here on DW. Who made that the question? As you brought up the case of murder victim Jo Cox, I thought incitement to murder was your concern. If you state the question, I'll try to answer it. But I didn't "s...

Re: Free speech, mere offense, direct harm & antisemitism

I agree with the general point here, but would warn that ideas having caused direct harm in the past is a poor predictor of whether they will cause harm in the present or future. Ideas about homosexuality being a sin against God, for example, or ideas about racial purity and miscegenation: these ha...

Re: Has anyone notice no aid from Islamic country for non Muslims ?

Greetings, Sure, so where a comment is actually anti-Semitic, report it... Ok, done with the latest example which is an almost a classic example in the history of anti-Semitism. Okay, the Protocols of Zion was mentioned, but we can easily dismiss/refute this rather than censoring it. From the wikip...
