    Every post includes a sig... :rolleyes:
    I havn't read the whole thread, but I'd like to point out that-
    If something is against the forum rules, therefore the user can be punished for doing said act
    Thusly, promoting or showing a link to anything violating forum rules should be given the same penalty, because it is exposing forum users to the same problems.
    Example... Porn is against the rules, thusly showing porn on the forum and/or linking to porn on the forum yeild the same penalty.

    The same rules that apply to posts will apply to sigs.

    Generally, we prefer to review it on a case-by-case basis, since there's no way any set of rules can cover every aspect of it. ;)

    Technically, I'm not even sure the BNP supports that. I think they more or less say that people of different cultures should live in different places because they won't get along well, and assume that people of a given race will mostly be of similar culture, don't they? Something like that.

    Anyway, you can support racists without being a racist. Probably a lot of BNP supporters don't care about race specifically, just about what they perceive as an influx of poor potential-criminals from other countries, and thus they vote for an anti-immigration party.
    If you examine my post carefully, you will see that I asserted no right to free speech. I said there should be free speech here, not that there is or must be. (I'm a moderator elsewhere, and I've had to deal with that "free speech" silliness too. I'm waiting for the day when someone tells me that banning is subject to the Fifth Amendment.) I also didn't suggest that I wouldn't respect Thunderfall's rules. It's his board.

    Perhaps my post seemed harsher than I intended it to be. My apologies for that.

    Just out of curiosity; what's the difference between: "there should be free speech here" and "there must be free speech here" ?? Both ways imply that CFC is better off with free speech. I disagree with that.

    If people want to vote for an anti-imigration party, they can vote UKIP. The BNP are racist, fascist thugs and that's all there is to it.

    Wow! What a convincing argument! I've really seen the error of my way now, because you say so it must be the truth. *End sarcasm.*

    Well, people keep posting in it....

    ....


    ....

    :p

    Anyway I'm glad an agreement has been made w.r.t. Joe's sig, though it would be nice if there was a rule set or at least use this as a precident in the future, but I understand that "case by case" seems to work for you guys.
