I don’t believe that freedom of speech is freedom to say whatever you want without taking responsibility for it and accepting the consequences. I come from a multicultural pluralistic society. I expect the same standard of politeness in this forum that is expected in a Canadian public meeting. I enforce Canadian standards in regards to racism and other forms of prejudice, and I don’t tolerate “alternative facts.”
I have been a serious practicing witch for some 30 years and am a High Priestess in two traditions. I say this because I seem to attract a certain brand of commentor who comes here with the intention of “educating” me. Please don’t waste your time or mine. If you think I’m an idiot who requires instruction, by all means tell the world about it on your own blog. Don’t come into my house to do it. I will remove you.
I welcome debate and discussion, even criticism, but I maintain a safe space here in which it’s not okay to be rude. I expect people to be polite to me and to each other. Failure to do so will result in the removal of your comment. Repeated offenses will result in being banned. I also ban people who come to argue which religion is better on the first offense.
