[Admin Edit] This is not for discussion. Forum T&Cs are clear. This is your first public warning.
Yes, the T&Cs are clear that racist comments are not allowed. I wouldn't want it any other way. However, the T&Cs don't define 'racist', nor to they link to a definition. I can see how that could be a problem for some posters who's definition doesn't match the admin's. That's not just possible, it's likely because we live in a time where, well, Thomas Sowell said it best:

The Mods have a tough job. It doesn't help their cause when wanting to appear particularly outraged they use entirely the wrong word.

Thread locked. Our T&Cs are not for discussion on the open forum.

This forum is not really the place for hate speech in any form, whatever you care to term it as.
