people on here get banned for political incorrectness

that's fine whatever, i don't agree but it's somewhat understandable

but people who say that Hindu Swamis were enlightened or that the Buddha was wrong for leaving his family should be banned or forcibly subjugated to "Discovering Theravada"

No one was banned for political incorrectness. People get banned for violating the terms of service and being disruptive and for writing "goodbye cruel forum" posts and when (literally) asking to be banned.

Be careful what you ask for, sometimes proposals are accepted.

Who has been banned?

An interesting suggestion, but such a claim would not in itself be contrary to ToS, and I'm not sure that forcible subjugation has much of a role on a Buddhist site.

disruptive here = not submitting to secular materialist liberalism & casual noncommitted western buddhism

banning people is forcible subjugation

tbh banning all heretics isn't even necessary but ones that go as far as the examples i cited i think should not be welcome here

these specific individuals are also not Buddhists as far as I understand, they are Hindus performing Hindu taqqiya

I don't submit to secular materialist liberalism nor casual noncommitted western buddhism and I haven't been banned yet.

People get banned for the reasons I noted above, not their views.

It's a bit un Buddhist to make people of different faiths unwelcome. As long as they don't impose their views I don't see a problem.

And? There is quite a bit of overlap between the two faiths. You could choose just to not engage with them.

Dylan, if you feel agitated, you should say to yourself, "I will not post for a few hours", or "I will not post for a few days".
