Interesting. So we cannot critique the actions of anyone, because we are not them? Strange. Doubly strange, because what you imply DooDoot has no business to do, is precisely what you take it upon yourself to do, in relation to anyone on this forum who disagrees with you, your positions or your over-complicated and uncharitable speech codes.
I have not done any such thing. Your continuing efforts to twist words and smear are just sad at this point.
DooDoot's comments appear to be judging whether someone else, or someone's politics, is Buddhist or not. I have never engaged in this type of speculation.
How do you resolve your double standard, regarding what you believe you and your fellow leftists should be able to do, in contrast to what others elsewhere on the political spectrum should be prevented from doing?
I don't identify as a leftist any more than you identify as alt-right. Why is it ok for you to ban me for merely using the term "alt-right" in connection with your comments (e.g. your seeming "obsession" with the George Soros conspiracy theories, using one of your favorite words), but it is ok for you to label me?
As to your point, I have not displayed a double standard, because I have not proposed rules to follow. Rather, I have tried to have a discussion. Such discussion has been polluted with negative comments which, now that I understand the dynamics of the DW Team, appear to be politically motivated.
You might wish to pretend for a moment that you have respect for me, pretend for a moment that I am sincere in trying to have a dialogue rather than set rules, and give serious thought to whether there is anything positive which you can contribute. So far, most of what you have contributed is trash talk.
