Obviously, I agree. This mod is a threat to free speech here. Deleting someone's post is an act of violence and should be reserved for sound, stated, and principled reasons.

I might add that chupwin took and enormous amount of time to finally respond. That is not the act of a responsible person.

I note that chupwn joined 2 months ago. Maybe he should be encouraged to rejoin reddit?

As has been stated by others, inoffensive speech is not in need of protection. Censorship is directed against offensive speech.

And we all know, or should know, that being "offended" is a personal choice. We choose how we feel. Those who claim otherwise need to take responsibility. There is no objective criterion for being offended or for what someone should feel..

Like Viktor Frankl stated in his post holocaust, existential work, Man's Search for Meaning, it is our HUMAN choice to determine how we react.

Our choice in how to react to the world is humanity's ultimate right that can never be taken away. Chumwin, take responsibility for yourself.

@chupwn has a bad attitude. Chumwin, take responsibility for yourself.

3 months tomorrow! I'm excited.

Honestly, you are taking this way out of proportion. I explicitly told you it was nothing personal. It was not "an act of violence".

Deletion is violence. Silencing someone is violence.
