>Personally I get a little despondent when people, who claim to be all “inclusive” and “transparent” just block, and when you ask why / what ?? You get the same.
It's a political stance many years in the making. I remember being a lefty supporting for more freedom of speech and tolerance back when religious freaks were worried about D&D and metal.
I've also watched opportunistic scum that wormed their way to influencing positions once a left-wing politics took over and started reframing "tolerance" to mean "good application of censorship". And by now a bunch of people buy it without understanding what a failed approach it is.
It either fails to take hold because it is rejected, or it takes hold and it fails to create a better society because once you get started with the censorship the only direction is adding more censorship.
> BTW, are you an across the Tasman cousin ??
I have no idea what you mean. I guess that's a no.
