Recently I had hetcho comment on a post I made in this sub.
His comment was nothing more than an attempt to minimise the contributions of a popular user.. He deleted his comments, but you can see my response was on topic, relevant, and not unnecessarily hostile.
Yet, some users seem to have been offended.
Do some users really believe that I must be nice to the guy at all times unless he brings up child porn?
To me this seems stupid. I won't attack the guy out of nowhere. I won't call for him to be banned as long as he stays legal.
But I am also not going to be nice to the guy. He commented on my post. He sent the comment to me and maligned a good user. But somehow I am the asshole for pointing out he is a hypocrite?
The guy is openly a paedophile. He spams Voat with borderline legal pics, sometimes flooding unrelated sub's with it. Animosity towards him is not unprovoked. He has done all he can to wind us up.
But we are supposed to accept that and be nice to him?
I think we all have the right to free speech. But we also have to pay the consequences. I have the right to be rude when talking to assholes.
Who's the crazy one? Me or the hecho fan club?
