Freedom of speech is nonexisten here on TR from what I see.

By Why Me Worry?? ·
I don't claim to be a saint and yes, some of my posts and responses may be deemed as offensive, but why must the TR moderators chase after me and edit my posts? Since when did TR turn into AOL with chat room monitors kicking people off for voicing their opinions, even if those opinions aren't politically correct? Is there some kind of socialist agenda behind TR and their dictators..err..I mean moderators in charge? If my posts are offending someone, then that someone has a choice of not reading my posts. It's like the loudmouths who complain about "offensive" TV or radio broadcasts. Hey morons, there's something called a remote control and tuner knob to change the station or channel if you don't like it.

Iv'e seen some of your post while perusing TR and have never been offended. I would hope that TR would never edit ones words in the cover of political correctness.

I speak the truth about the H1-B epidemic and at talk about what I deem to be "cultural rudeness" on the part of the Indians, yet I get called a "racist" and "bigot". The truth is the truth and suppressing the truth won't change the facts.

the subjective.

Your statement that which you "deem to be "cultural rudeness" on the part of the Indians" is, by the use of the word "deem," clearly subjective. Apparently you seem to hold that others should conform to your cultural standards. If that is the case, then yes, by definition, you are bigoted.

From Merriam-Webster:

Main Entry: bigot

: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

We've got more than a few OS bigots floating around TR also. I only mention it because the definitial clarified it so well.

As for the H1B thing that pops up; I find politics distastefull in general but fully admit I haven't the understanding of the H1B situation required to make any comments.

Most are unaware that the primary definition of bigotry is class agnostic.

As for the H1B debate, it is necessary that one always make the distinction between the companies who use such & similar visas to obtain employees & the employees who are so obtained.

Unfortunately, too many ignore that distinction, and visit the sins of the father on the children.

And, have you any evidence to even suggest that TR is concerned about "political correctness?"

No, I have no evidence nor am I suggesting that TR is concerned about being PC. I simply stated that "I would hope they would not resort to that".

I have noticed that these forums contain alot of different subjects, some of which have nothing to do with the field we all work in. I am not OK with racial slurs nor do I beleive that TR has the obligation to post any dribble we wright.

Liberals? Just what the **** is that to mean?
Surely you can connect that.

Deepsand-
Do you disagree with that? I dont think that placing the word Liberals in my initial post which conatined references to (editing, Political correctness and cencorship)was that big of a stretch.

In the future, I may reframe from conveying my political views in my psot.

This way, the ministry can remove any inappropriate words.
