He's not on the site posting enough to be put on trial in my opinion, but he is borderline.
Turn around, go back.

Interesting. I'm not sure that not posting enough bile is a reason not to put someone on trial, though. He has a long history of horribleness, which I think we might take into consideration.

Well, if you check his sig, I'm pretty sure he is the only person on the site with such qualifications, and I sure do value diversity.

What value do you think Anti-Athiest offers the site?

I would say yes but he's not as much of a nuisance as others who had previously been placed on trial... so what would the site really gain from it?

I don't know if that was a question for me or not, but right now I'm just curious what the people think and I don't want to particularly influence their thoughts any more than I already am by asking the question. So, I'll defer that for a bit later... probably should have done the same with MS.

Yes. He said Jews deserved the Holocaust, is an open Nazi, and has said some pretty nasty things against others, and shows no sign of regret or remorse.

Check. his. certification. As far as I know, nobody else shares that certification with him.

That he has a perspective or that his perspective is unique does not mean that it offers value, though.

Yes. I think there should e a harder stance on users who comport themselves in such a hateful and inappropriate fashion.

No. Trials should be reserved for real, active members, not trolls. Anti is nothing but a troll and while I personally don't mind him around, there's no need for a trial to bam him.

Why don't you mind him being around? If he posted more regularly, would you mind him being around?

I probably would, yes. I don't really have an issue with him because I don't see him and when I do it's usually somewhat funny (if obvious trolling). I don't care if he's banned either way but I think a trial isn't necessary

So, it would be acceptable to you if anti-athirst were banned even without a trial?

But in all honesty, I don't think there should be a trial here.

"Evil teaches tolerance only until it dominates"
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

I think that would probably be best, actually. The most a trial would do is prove an amusing diversion for a while. Also an easy win.
