Once again, its time to explain a few things about this site, and freedom of speech and “balanced representation”.
Any site has the absolute right to decide what is and is not appropriate to its interests. One may notice that pretty much all main stream news does not allow comments at all when it comes to issues on Islam. That is because they know what they will get and it will get them shut down by governments with agendas other than the preservation of their own peoples and cultures.
At this site however, we allow a wide range of opinions and encourage debate and discussion and we have seen a lot of it. Sometimes muslims come and state their piece but not often because the result is usually a polite and informed vivisection of their arguments in a way which is not conducive to sympathy for Islam. Hence why Islam does not tolerate criticism as a matter of legislation and force, as it cannot stand up to reason. Reason is anathema to it, in fact.
However there are conditions which this site considers abusive, irrespective of the content.
If a person were to relentlessly spam each post on any issue of interest to this site with irrelevant material hocking a separate agenda not related whatsoever to the focus of the article or even the site as a whole, that will be considered spam, because that is what it is.
Freedom of speech does not mean you can take a private forum and start haemorrhaging your own issues all over it in mass posts. I don’t care if it was about motorcycles or magazine subscriptions, or even if it was pro-Trump material, it is not acceptable and will be marked as spam.
Sometimes in a friendly way, people will entertain discussions about unrelated materials like music or whatnot, but it is limited, and usually related somewhat to something. But more than a bit of that, its best to take it private or to another forum. If a website is about everything its about nothing.
In the case that is currently the issue, it appears to be the sort of sly methods of contemporary antisemites to slowly bring up materials that are borderline Jew-hate, and inject more and more and more both in terms of volume and in terms of the degree of blatancy of the antisemitic content.
There are a lot of sites for that. If this is what someone wishes to do, go to one of those sites, or better yet, start your own. But using this platform for your agenda, that is not going to be allowed. And my not letting someone hijack this platform for another agenda, objectionable or not, is not limiting freedom of speech, nor is it a function of a balanced PoV.
In fact even that notion is a little silly. If I say 2+2=4 and someone else says it is 6, that doesn’t mean that one must then say 2+2=5.
The internet can accommodate any number of websites. So people who are not happy with this one, or find that it is too restrictive, have a staggeringly large number of options. Please chose one and best of luck.
