We on the IC are used to verbal arguments. Basiji or Zionist labels are tossed around like rice in a wedding ! But for most part these are verbal. People do not threaten each other with bodily harm. Up to now only one person on IC threatened me with physical harm. I brought it up to the admin when it happened. The admin replied that the person is not serious and I dropped the issue.
However the recent threats on two blogs have a more alarming nature. They are not as simple to dismiss as the previous one. I am writing this blog to alert people to dangers of threats and to start a discussion. We on IC need to condemn threats of violence and to get some rules put in and applied. Otherwise we are asking for trouble.
My suggestion is that any threat of violence be taken at face value and very seriously. We all have families and do not want them in danger. Therefore I request the admin warn and then ban anyone making threats of violence. Threats of violence are illegal in America. What happens if a poster on IC is physically attacked and God forbid harmed? This is why we need to put a damper on such behavior.
