Of course it is. But is the new rule in a forum designed for hatefulness that you can be hateful so long as you are not too hateful? And how will that be modded? With a series of ad hoc rules that will apply to single issues at a time but almost never to anything insulting to groups that are not favored by the board?
ETA: Please don’t misunderstand me. Jesus, was that an awful thing to say. Just awful. But the whole damn forum is awful.
