NOTICE: Abusive spammers know (or should know) the price of dialogue on serious matters — basic civility

Pardon a moment.
Just a notice to let the abusive spammers know that the price tag for serious dialogue is basic civility. (And in some cases, a lot of uncalled for stuff — for cause — would have to be removed and apologised for. Why should I or any sensible person let you do the verbal equivalent of repeatedly dumping garbage on my front lawn?)
Oh, a follow-up snippet from my comment inbox, to see some of why I say this:
. . . Where’s the “serious dialogue” here on your worthless site and in your threads on UD? Blocking and banning people who speak the truth isn’t “serious dialogue”. You don’t have the slightest clue as to what “serious dialogue” is, you LYING [vulgarity] dictator.
Your ONE SIDED LIE-FILLED sermons are NOT “serious dialogue”. Every word you spew just makes you look more and more like a cowardly, LYING lunatic. You should be thoroughly embarrassed by your reputation as a big mouthed blowhard with no courage, morals, or integrity whatsoever. You’re a deranged loser.
On the contrary, it should be quite clear that I am simply insisting on a modicum of decency and — in this case — correction of a lot of already existing harmful commentary. How, I wish we were able to focus on how we could work together to call for reformation to deal with the problem of human trafficking exposed by the Bibi Aisha case, but instead we again have to pause to deal with abuse.
And, BTW, irresponsible, out of context misreadings of Deut 22 etc are not “speaking the truth.”
It cannot acknowledge the obvious implication we face, that any sound worldview must start from the premise that morality is objective, that our fellow human beings have comparable moral worth to ourselves, so we have duties of care and respect to one another, and that being under such moral government strongly points to a ground of Being who is the inherently good and wise Creator and Lord of the cosmos.
And, FYFI, venom, vulgarities, personalities, poisonous side-tracks and false accusations, of course, are not serious dialogue. G’day. END
