In the last 48 hours we have had a torrent of racist posts and "let's shoot the looting cops" posts. A small handful of LEOs are known to have engaged in highly questionable conduct (out of over a thousand) and the majority of the population, and the vast majority of the poor people, in New Orleans are black, so--big surprise--the majority of looters televised have been black. Scum/animals/trash are scum/animals/trash regardless of race, so we are not about to tolerate the generalized crap that has been posted of late. I have already locked eight or ten accounts, and other Staff have locked more. The lamest excuse is, "I'm not a racist, I'm just pointing out the FACTS!" Bullshit. The rules here have not changed. Please keep your posts within the Conduct Code or you will simply be removed. The "paperwork" of such things is cumbersome and time-consuming, so at least I am not going to bother with it--so if your account is disabled, this thread will have to serve as your notice. Keep your posts within the rules and you will have no problem. This isn't open to debate, so I'm locking this. Enjoy the board.
