Yes, I was reading on PT today. There are days when I just have to get a good laugh.
As I was reading through the comments (and rolling my eyes), I came across someone who obviously disagreed with the thoughts expressed in the main post. Her name is Danibel.
She posted a short comment and then was pounced upon by the PT mob. Not only did they attack her ideas, but they attacked her spelling - even her name, for crying out loud! And then.....nothing.
No rebuttal, no backing up her statements. Nothing.
This is all cleared up a few comments later by TC. She explained that Danibel had been "escorted from the premises" after Danibel had posted a few scathing comments about (wait for it)...."personal responsibility." (Yeah! I would love to have been able to chime in on that! Oh, no - wait. I can't. I have been banned. Boo hoo.) TC promises that Danibel's comments will be on tomorrow's post. Oh joy!
See, this is my main issue I have on PT. There is no tolerance for anything that remotely resembles a dissenting comment. If you don't chime in with the mob - POOF! - you are banned. No chance to give a rebuttal or to even defend yourself. Yet the PTers are quite liberally allowed to tear this person down with no hope of her being able to comment.
This site is different. We show both sides. We allow differing points of view.
What do you feel about the banning of people from sites (any site - not just PT) simply for not having the same point of view? (Not talking about personal attacks - just for a different point of view.)
When is banning justified? (If ever.)
