If you want to talk about it being front page news, there's actually a thread for that.
Is it so hard to talk about LGBT hacks and not attack the hacker himself, or straight or gay rights? That's what the thread is for.
We did NOT bring up the gay rights thing until he brought it up first.
We did NOT attack the hacker until he interpreted our somewhat negative comments as 'oppressing the community'. And even after that I was less harsher than him.
Is it so hard to read those chain of posts first?
Frankly I don't know if these posts would result in me being banned instead, but there has been a handful of people agreeing with these points earlier and more if you summon the IRC chat. (If I ever actually get banned for this I would have to agree with what some people in the IRC chat think about the forum.)
