Why wouldn’t Off-topic threads be marked (here I tried an asterisk) to stand out in the Recent list?

Question:
With the new rule, why do such forums as ‘Religion’ or ‘LGBT’ still exist?

Have to agree, get rid of all the
offensive forums or you'll have
new members posting in them.
Or members that haven't been
here in awhile. There are hundreds
of banned topics here.

Good point. Move the threads to an archive if mgt wants. But kill the topic areas.

Has the WOV sub forum called Free Speech Zone always been there?

It says in the description that as long as posts don’t violate federal law, nobody will be punished for what they say there.

This section probably can’t exist under the new rules.

My guess is people know exactly what's appropriate to talk about and what's not. Of course, you have people that will try to see how close they can get to that line. Then they come up with all kinds of excuses of why they believe it's appropriate while trying to spin their comment. How can people not know what's controversial and what's not? One just can just assume they're talking to a snowflake, whatever it is you think might trigger them just avoid saying that. Why is that so hard?

Maybe people don't know what is appropriate anymore. Nowadays hardly anyone even knows exactly how many genders there really are. Used to be two but now if you had to have a dollar for each you would need atleast a couple real bills and a bunch of counterfeits.
Why should one have to tiptoe around a snowflake? They are fast melting and leave no permanent mark. Why is everyone intent on building an abundance of safespaces to keep them from melting?
There really is only one answer. The lessons of history have yet to be learned.

Wait, nothing has really happened of interest, and people are suggesting more changes?

Bah. Humbug.

Because snowflakes are themselves a product of culture.
In the years of Enlightenment, religious people were ‘snowflakes’, sensitive, ‘triggered’. Yet if the libertines and philosophers had refrained from ‘triggering’ them, where would we be now?

Free speech implies offense. If you are pro free speech, expect to offend several of your loved ones. It is a price to pay, but worth the spending.

Everything’s controversial at one point. Shying away from controverse means not talking at all.
