    It was most definitely not listed in the rules and that’s my beef. TDS was listed. Which I didn’t use. RINO was not. Again, just read it and say it out loud. One of the members got forcefully removed from a politics forum for using the word RINO. Not even totalitarian Twitter Facebook Google YouTube is doing that during their Orwellian purge.

    It may be oversensitive but in my observations they are still trigger words that get people riled up. Dont know how many times ive seen people complain because Tned uses the word TDS in regards to them. Thats why the mods have had to crack down on the words themselves because people are to easily triggered by them. And to be fair to them it seems to have worked as i havent noticed any flaming or name calling the last few days in there.
