    It is open to Michael to try to argue that a riot is relevantly equivalent to a protest if he wants to try that, and it is open to others to disagree.

    what happened to that rule that people should avoid quoting whole chunks of text (or even as in this case the whole text) of other posters only to add an one liner?
    The couple of examples in the Koshnitsky award are conspicuous cases! Another example in the Martin Niemöller's thread!

    It is not a defined site rule but from time to time the more severe examples / repeat practitioners will be snipped when I notice such cases and have time to deal with them. In some cases posts may be deleted.

    Posters should be aware that requoting long posts in full unnecessarily clogs up the thread for others, forcing others to waste time scrolling through something they have already read.

    There is a defined rule against quoting a long section of copyrighted text from other sites without permission and adding a very short comment - posters doing this should expect that their post will definitely be deleted. Fortunately hasn't been a common issue lately.

    As I am disallowed from mentioning a certain country except outside it's special thread could my mate Michael be restricted to only mentioning Aborigines in threads where they are directly relevant?
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    The cases are not equivalent. You, unless forcibly restrained, will gleefully post about your latest off-topic fetish (whatever it is) anywhere on the board for no reason at all, whereas Michael's tangents are confined to certain political threads where his position or a position he supports is under pressure. He may genuinely believe his comparisons are valid and reasonable.

    That said I have considered placing such a restriction on off-topic comments about Indigenous people and may do so if the issue persists.

    I also see now that you provoked Michael by re-raising Aboriginal issues on the thread; those posts have been deleted.

    If I may suggest an amendment of the Never Trump in the SB as it effected me even though I was being a good boy. Maybe only two consecutive posts on US politics in the SB then no more until at least 8 other non-US shouts have been posted. Because there are beautiful one liners coming out of it that are gems. I think my last shout has been there on top for a number of days - not very good.

    Ohhh, so disappointed. Saw that antichrist had been banned and thought it was permanent. Disappointed that it is only for 24 hours

    Chess-related posts have been moved to "Chess Whatever" which is the off-topic chess thread: http://www.chesschat.org/showthread....Chess-Whatever
    Any discussion of this decision may occur in the Help and Feedback section only. Do not reply to this post.
    Thanks for moving those posts. I was fairly sure that they belonged in a chess thread, but didn't actually realise that the Off-Topic Bin (which I usually ignore) is only for non-chess posts. Anything that increases my number of actual chess posts is fine with me!

    There have been a small number of chess-related posts in Off-Topic Bin from time to time but mostly just silly ones by antichrist. I decided that if people were going to have a reasonably serious discussion about a chess subject it should at least be in a chess section.

    Can American colloquial expressions like ....pony rider be used in American politics threads. That was a Biden special that nailed them.

    Not to insult other posters. That particular expression will cause problems sooner or later if used to insult other posters because it includes the term "lying" and might imply a serious claim of lying.
