Ok, as I don’t know if I am the only one it has happened to, therefore I do pursue this a little. I am aware there are more than one way to determine someone’s status in this respect.
You wrote: “I am further stating that it is a moot point whether or not someone fits that profile, especially if they claim to be out but act and think like they are still in, voicing opinions on our site in support of the devious practices of TFI—that is where the line has to be drawn. Whether we draw the line against someone who is a current member, or someone who is newly out, or has been out for years, is not relevant. It is not the determining criteria.”
The last part is perfectly clear.
But does your determinating apparatus somehow fail to distinguish between ‘voicing opinions…in support of the devious practices of TFI’ and voicing dissenting from opinions in general.
F.x. to differ from general consensus on this website on how someone would prefer to deal WITH members of TFI cannot be taken as meaning they support ‘the devious practices of TFI’. That would be flawed logic.
But the bottom-line it is perfectly clear – and I do agree – that you would not want this website to be a vehicle to promote or defend TFI doctrines and practices.
