Response to Caution - Racism Ahead


I want to register my strong opposition to any moves to censor or delete posts to this forum. I for one will no longer post here if censorship is introduced.
The freedom to express one's views - regardless of how disagreeable those views may be to other people - is the hallmark of an open, democratic society (or organization).
The majority of people here are intelligent enough to recognise racism when they see it, and to regard it with the contempt it deserves.
Censorship of political opinion is a slippery slope; and I for one would have no interest in taking part in any discussion in which those holding views opposed to mine were prevented from taking part. It is only by encouraging active and open debate - including from those who support the "war" - that the issues can be fully explored and bogus arguments exposed.
