I'll admit it. The moment someone uses the term safe-space un-ironically, I immediately tag them as a few eggs short of a basket. It has pretty much become synonymous with echo chambers and places for brewing up some of the worst hate-speech and clique generation around, as long as it's aimed at certain demographics. It pretty much guarantees the death of diversity in a community and has absolutely no place here.
The rules here function as they are, (even though I personally find them too constrictive as it is and are interpreted wildly differently depending on the moderator and its personal biases) and somewhat allows for different viewpoints and discussions to be had. Adding "being impolite" to the mix just opens up for flat out mod abuse to an even greater degree than we've seen before, as well as abuse of the report system to simply silence and censor unpopular views and opinions.
I agree. But on the other hand we could never get rid of this one person otherwise. Or? I mean, this person said: "doing a mithra" and he got banned for it (I have even seen the mail from one of the moderators. With exactly this argumentation). So It is more or less policy, so my question is: Would it also count in protection of users which are not directly on this forum. Like for example if someone use Diana Kim in a pejorative way? Or Nauplius? Or TonyG? If so, this safespace does not count for Mithra alone, also for others; could I than hope that those two users got permanent banned too?
I mean what is fair for Mithra should also be fair for others? In other words, they deserve the same safespace.

I agree. To go off topic here:
I have seen this person--which said "doing a mithra" and got permanent banned for it--got hate-mails form three backstage users in a anonymous fashion (several few day old NPC alts). With one of the three more or less boasting with what he had got done.
Another latter included more or less postmodern nonsense and hate-mongering in a very long fashion which could be sum up too: "you white CIS male etc...[...] check your privilege, you scholar XYZ reading, german nazi. etc....."
The victim of those mail and I have a good idea which person(s) at least sent the feminist nonsense mail. As it was fast very clear that, this person has no plan what-so-ever and spout out nonsense like: "they cannot be oppressed by definition." "metanarrative" etc....
Off topic: Definitions cant be explanations.... If someone says ... "by definition something does x," or "by definition something does not x", or "by definition something can not choose x, or just choose x etc....."
If someone says such "by-defintion-explaination-nonsense", then this person does nothing else as saying "I said so, thats way." Just in a more educated fashion.
-Other examples "in-this-style" would be:
- MTV Decoded with Franchesca Ramsey, which more or less says the same postmodern nonsense.... "that afro-americans cant be racist by definition" followed by postmodern nonsense.
- Bahar Mustafa nonsense https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9uMArSeg38
"can not be racist or sexist by defintion, because of ....." (1:56)
- Jade nonsense http://backstage.eve-inspiracy.com/index.php?topic=5683.msg93352#msg93352 http://backstage.eve-inspiracy.com/index.php?topic=5683.msg93315#msg93315
Like a I said.... The permanent banned users has very good idea which person(s) send him one of three mails.
But this is all off topic. The topic is.... can we hope that other users get also permanent banned for using a name in a pejorative way?
