you can make an argument that the original thread title is to blame for the whole series of events. Even with the thread title in mind, I agree with Truck that the post he replied to had terrible logic and I was considering replying in the same way. Just because someone does something good doesn't mean they are beyond reproach for other bad things they've done. It's poor logic.
Don't care that he's a beloved political person. If I think he's an idiot I'm going to say so (I do by the way), and until it becomes continuous and belligerent (and I'd argue it has to be off-topic) I don't think there's any issue.
Since it hasn't become continuous and belligerent I don't see how the examples provided apply.
Again, you can make an argument that the thread title is baiting. Ask a mod to change it if you want. I'd do it myself but I think they decide these things by committee these days and I wouldn't want to step on any toes. Also not sure I still have the ability.
Bolded: You are correct.I just though that the kind of response Truck gave was inappropriate, but I have been corrected.Just felt like it was unfair to Radek, since honestly, if I didn't kept it to myself, I would have written something similar to what he wrote, without the name calling of course.
Second paragraph: No problem at all.Just like I have to call out politics and it's policies, you have the same right.Again, though the response was inappropriate, but I was corrected and was given response by the mod team that it was ok and that wasn't baiting.
Third paragraph: As I said, dosen't apply to Truck because I don't remember him having a history of doing that, but I wanted to let that out because if that didn't happen before, it sure will in the past.It may be naive of me to think like this, but I believe there is a better way of saying you disagree with someone vision or behavior than calling names.Just because someone did a bad thing or had an inappropriate behavior, dosen't mean you have to go to his level.It's up to every one of us to keep discussion civil.
Nah, won't report. CGI and Ryu already posted in this thread.Meaning that they either know of the problem and don't care, and know and like it.Either way, I would just be losing my time.Also I don't need to point out that using a natural disaster to point fingers or have a petty war against someone with different view is silly and inappropriate.That's just common sense.
If someone provokes a situation, a response to it is different than if no one in the thread called for such a comment.
If Radek thought the 'Clown' part of the thread title was inappropriate, he could have reported it. And if he wanted to call out someone, it would be the thread creator at best.
Instead he attacked a group of people, and brought up the subject of racism, misogyny and bigotry, while using an example that no one so far seems to have been able to make any sense of.
So there are several things here that provokes a response.
You shouldn't call out people of a certain opinion, if you're not prepared for them to respond.
It's not usually inappropriate to think that a public figure is a certain way. Unless it seems completely unreasonable.

For example if I said that "Shigeru Miyamoto is a pedophile because he makes kids games".
