They are enforced, prehaps not the way you would like them to be, but they are enforced all the same.WalterS wrote:I don't know why Konrad should be worried about the Forum rules regarding Holocaust denial. They aren't enforced, anyway.
It's permissable under the rules to question the methods of the masskillings, but not the fact that killings of millions occured or that they were planned and intentional.WalterS wrote:A poster who says he does not believe that people were gassed to death by the Germans is, by definition, a Holocaust denier. Is that not so? Or did I miss something?
Again, it is enforced (the fact that some members have been banned for violating it should be enough to verify it) though obviously not the way you would want it to be.WalterS wrote:It's your forum and your rules. I just think that if you're going to have a rule you should enforce it and be clear about it. Otherwise, get rid of the rule.

No. That's not a very good metaphor. The US government did steal land from the Indians.I think you guys should be "tougher" on this. I see no problem with being tougher. It is kind of like saying: you can't argue that the US governement stole land from the Indians...you can only argue whether they used rifles or canons doing it. ????? Doesn't make much sense, does it?
To deny the existence of homicidal gas chambers is to my understanding equivalent to denying the Holocaust. And this is against the rules of this forum and will result in the banning of the poster. Please correct me if I am wrong.
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... ht=#479300The debate of the existence of homicidal gas chambers is on this forum a dangerous topic.
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... ht=#480688"Non-denial deniers" Mr. WalterS? Very clever! It seems to me that the a non-denial denier is the result of the rules of this forum.
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... ht=#491989Anyone who would attempt this could be accused of denying the Holocaust and be banned from future posting on this forum.

Forum = A public meeting or assembly for open discussion.
Debate = A discussion in which reasons are advanced for and against some proposition or proposal.
I have nothing against you forum rules, Mr. Thompson. They are none of my business, I have enough other problems.
But I find this hilariously funny.
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... ht=#501023To debate = discuss the pros and cons of an issue.
The opposing debater on this forum is subject to be subsequently banned from any further posting, according to the forum rules.
And the moderator is happy: "I found me another denier!"
You people must be kidding!
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... ht=#501058I am trying to figure out what makes you people tick on these matters. Roberto told me that you hate "revisionists". If true, try to get rid of the hate. It stifles the mind. By the way: I could'nt care less for your rules.
andThese rules are not my rules, they are yours. You should be bothered by them, not me.
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... ht=#501694I am neither unhappy with this forum's rules nor unable to adhere to them. I couldn't care less. I simply do not understand how a "privately owned" forum invites posters to debate certain topics and at the same time posts rules that could lead to the banning of the poster if his expressed opinion is opposite from the moderator's or the webmaster's point of view.
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... ht=#502233If I am not banned by then I will write my experience in one of those threads.
Konrad didn’t answer them, so I asked them two more times. He never did answer them. Instead, Konrad first claimed that he must have forgotten that the questions were asked, and then he claimed to have been insulted – slandered – by having the questions put to him. With an air of injured innocence, he also claimed to have been blacklisted by the moderator. He still hasn't answered them to this day.Why would a person want to participate in a forum where he didn't agree with the rules?
What kind of person would play the part of a deceiver, in order to be able to post in a forum?
Prost, Herr Thompson! I and most other members come on this forum to read useful historical information and interesting, civil, sensible discussions, not neo-Nazis posting their crap alleging that millions of people mysteriously disappeared, and that the Jews somehow even got the SS to go along with their "hoax".Any garden can be beautiful, if you weed it.
