    The history of Mandela.

    Since a generic title of "Mandela" doesn't allow for bringing up the history of who he was, how about we discuss what he was like throughout his life and not just the last quarter. Lets be honest, no name calling.

    Re: The history of Mandela.

    So, since what seemed to be a nice debate going on between you two was cut short due to the thread not being about his past, I figured this is a place where you two can continue the discussion. But I don't know how you are going to "debate" without calling him a name?

    Re: The history of Mandela.

    To be honest, I only jumped into that thread after I saw where people were trying to take it. The fact that people want to "debate" about him, I think, is just stupid. That said... debate away, I'm done here.

    He would have made a great conservative though...

    Apparently it's now racist hate speech to mess up our little liberal feel good story with inconveniences (like facts and the truth). To The self aggrandizing left none of that matters.

    God forbid the exercise of free speech turns a thread into something "disruptive", and then has to be locked down. Seriously? Some of these moderators are complete ass-hats...

    Well, you can get banned for stating history now.

    So.............was this member banned for calling some moderators ass-hats? Seems I have seen non-moderator members called worse lately and.................no ban.
