While I understand your point about the context of the poem, the point of the poem is we must not sit idly by. In that context, I believe I was OK. I understand you do not. That's OK. As I said above, freedom defending to the death, the right of someone to do something you would spend a lifetime arguing against.The context in which the poem has been written is that of a criminal inhuman regime that had millions executed. The context in which you have used the poem is that of moderation limiting insults and politics in a gaming forum.
I will leave it at that.
In that sense, we honor each other and that's all I could ever hope for. Just because we disagree, doesn't mean we have to dislike one another. As you say, there is likely far more we agree on than disagree on. I will buy you a beer when next we meet. Hold me to it. -- jimOver the years we've had some issues in which we don't agree with each other or exchanges that were unhappy - at times rather sharply. But I also believe we agree on important matters, yet sometimes coming from different angles.
In some cases you might not have an intuition when my red lines get crossed. It might be the same vice versa. Still we manage to keep a respectful tone even in cases where our disagreements are serious. I intend to keep it that way.
