I wonder if you have heard of Gaire? Well, it's a site that claims to promote free speech, and it does, as long as what you say conforms to the cosy consensus of its inner circle. If you do not subscribe to that point of view, that inner circle is free to hurl personal abuse at you, and if you try to fight back, you get banned. There is an inner circle of bullies who control the whole thing, and those bullies have carte blanche.
The sad thing is that they are all in denial about it.
Recently, a young man started a thread who was looking for support. He was not out yet, and did not want to come out at this time. He was bullied, intimidated, subjected to vile bitchiness, and left the site in disgust. Because I supported him, I was subjected to sexual innuendos and personal abuse.
I do not support gay marriage, but I do support civil partnership. Because of my stance, the Gaire bullies, masquerading as moderators, vilified me, and when I had the temerity to answer them, I was banned from the site, even though I am a fully paid up member, and have been for longer than most of said bullies.
That is Gaire. Judge for yourselves!
