Members should feel free to express their opinions but without abusing other members, is that so hard to understand? There are plenty of forums that encourage flame-bait, we don't.
No, it isn't hard to understand. I just feel that saying "feel free to exspress your opinions", and then saying "you can't say that" when someone posts something racist or sexist etc negates the point of saying "feel free to express yourself".
Myself, I wouldn't post anything rascist or sexist or whatever (intentionally), and am just asking the questions because I like nit picking.
