I don’t understand why we would need this level of policing. I respect your opinion on stricter punishments but otherwise I think you’re wrong. I don’t think it’s right to punish someone indefinitely for something they said, even if it’s disgusting. By banning someone permanently for saying something, you’re implying with full confidence that they can never redeem themselves, that they cannot realize their mistake and better themselves ever and must be exiled. I think this line of thinking is narrow and wrong. I don’t condone people saying ugly things, but to think that none of them can ever change and must be banned forever is just silly.
Secondly, and if I get banned for saying this, I’m never posting here again; I think people to some degree just need thicker skin. This doesn’t negate the fact that the people who say racist and hurtful things are wrong and should be punished, but at the minimum, you should have thick enough skin to not care, or at least not be ruined over it. That’s just my opinion.
