You must agree to these terms and rules before using the site.
Which includes this:
That rule existed long before anyone ever heard the term 'SJW'. The rule also applies equally to everyone: man, woman, alien, gay, straight, whatever.
I think the core idea behind it is not to control speech, but instead to make everyone aware that 'bad language' very often goes along with strong emotional reactions (which we're often not even aware of). By speaking/writing more consciously, it becomes easier to catch and observe those reactions - which is basically the Work.
The rule doesn't actually curtail anyone's freedom of expression because in joining the forum, we each agreed to those terms in light of work on the self à la Gurdjieff. All members agreed that this is what we will do - for a reason. Anyone is free to change their mind about their use of language here, but then they are not free to continue posting and interacting with other members. Even then, most posts are publicly viewable, so 'excommunication' in the sense of totally preventing someone from reading
the forum and continuing to participate in that way isn't even really possible.
Therefore, to say that we the forum and mods are acting 'SJW-like' is in fact doing exactly what the SJWs themselves do: "The rules don't apply to me, there should be no rules, I'm so offended and you have no right to curb my free speech."
We the forum admins and moderators are not YouTube or Facebook, we are not a popular public online service that influences entire elections and so on. We're just the Cassiopaea Forum. More importantly, our rules have been the same all the way back to the days when there was no forum, and instead we just had Yahoo Groups.
Frankly, none of the above was even the point. The point was (originally) that Bjorn posted and a few of us wanted to just say, "Um, that's a little strong, doncha think?" and in the end, he agreed. Well, happens to all of us - especially these days of Utter Insanity in the world! Since things will probably get even more nuts than any of us can imagine right now, that's actually watching each other's back since the #1 way to 'disintegrate' is to be pulled into the hysterical nonsense that has gripped much of the planet.
