> Lou, surely you must have seen that things have changed at Babble. There does not appear to be any active oversight. A lack of communication from Bob at this point is pretty much the norm. If your request isn't acted on, it probably has been tacitly allowed to stand.
> I do remember that if a poster makes more than three complaints about a member that were not considered uncivil by administration, then written explanations need no longer be given. The action or lack of action would be considered an answer. Perhaps this also applies to multiple complaints by a poster about the posts of more than one member. If this is so, then even if Dr. Bob were consistently answering, which he's not, he would not consider it necessary to reply.
> I am curious. Have you been elsewhere on the internet? I can't read a major news site comments without being sickened at the hatred and vicious rants. I've never seen on Babble the sort of antisemitic rants that go on elsewhere without apparent response from the moderators. I can't see antisemitic violence coming from anything I've seen on Babble. I doubt it's likely on the other sites either. But it does seem as if your concerns are needed more elsewhere.
> Also, I wonder if you see any uncivil remarks towards a person who happens to be a Jew to be the same as anti-semetism? Isn't it possible for someone to be uncivil to another person without regard to their religion or ethnicity? If someone is rude to me, I don't consider it a sign of a tendency towards violence directed at all Americans of European descent. How do you even know the religion or ethnicity of a person who is rude to another person on the internet? Isn't it possible that they too are Jewish?
You wrote,[...I am curious...I can't see antisemitic violence coming from anything I've seen on babble...].
I am unnsure as to what you are wanting to mean here and have concerns. If you could post answers to the following, then I could have the opportunity to respond accordingly.
A. Have you read all posts here on this site?
B. By what criteria do you use, if any, to determine if or if not a statement here could or could not arouse antisemitic feelings that could lead to violene toward a Jew?
C. Are you aware of the propagaanda used to foster violence toward Jews that is in the historical record, before 1933?
D. Are you aware of the propaganda used to excite a community to do violence toward Jews after 1945?
E. Would you be willing to examine the posts in the offered links by me in this thread and apply whatever criteria that you use, if any, to determine if or if not there is the potential for some readers of those statements to comitt violence toward a Jew?
F. redacted by respondent
