Why am I banned, for simply repeating the exact same insults a horde of bullies has continuously directed at me?
In fact, I actually said less insults than they said to me.
You were suspended because you violated the rules on civility.
It's a rhetorical question. Of course I know why I was banned.
I suspect you don't. Even when I had not read further, I immediately suspected that this would be some excuse you made up to feed a persecution complex.
I was banned because I am an outsider of the group, and humans are dominated by xenophobia and their ancient emotional associations to desire conformity. Thus I was given a bias and banned, whilst others broke more rules than me, and got no punishment.
...and I was right.
If you feel others were breaking the rules, you should report the posts using the "report" link at the bottom of the post. But that's for rules violations, not axe-grinding.
New members are welcome. Should they pee on the carpet and subsequently get shown the door, that's not xenophobia.
And don't even say it was because I didn't follow the scientific method. You had guys who made ridiculous unscientific claims like "animals are not sentient" and didn't ban them for that.
We don't ban people, or even scold them, for being wrong. If someone is factually wrong we expect that to be corrected in the course of discussion — kinda the reason the site exists. You are free to weigh in in the thread about sentience, if you can do so reasonably politely. Because we have rules and expect you to follow them. If you insult people, you will be warned and eventually suspended, and you now have empirical data to support that. If it continues, you will be banned.
Let me know when you'll give me a valid reason to stop hating humanity.
I don't think anyone but you owns that responsibility, and insulting people is a curious way to be asking for help in this regard.
