A recent Israel thread got closed, presumably because I and others made comments that I guess "condemned an entire demographic." In reality, I put all the proper qualifiers on my statements - some, many, most, etc.

Assuming that is why that thread was closed, is it fair to say that drawing any conclusion about any group, based upon a majority believing or supporting a particular thing, is not allowed?

I assume it was closed because the discussion wasn't on topic and instead was just people accusing others of being racist.

*edit also comments like telling people to "go jerk off or something" probably didn't help and certainly isn't on topic

It is natural, as is most racism. What matters is if that natural instinct is turned into policy... which of course it should not be. Similarly, wanting to go all vigilante on criminals is perfectly natural... but not a good basis for the law.

As per Comrades actions, I agree, they were both unnecessary and offensive. They should be edited out...

Until I hear back from the admins though, I won't say more than that.
