Mr. Hsiung,
You wrote,[...But I don't consider it supportive...].
But readers could think that you consider it supportive on the basis that they could have read that you posted here that support takes precedence and members are to be civil at all times and that you do not wait to sanction since one match could start a forest fire. And if those readers also saw that you posted that you should revise what you said, there is no change in your TOS/FAQ for readers to know what the revision is. And anyway, the post could have been posted before you posted that you should revise what you have posted here about how you enforce your rules.
I am asking for you to open that post and type right down in the post something like:
Owner's note:
Be advised that I do not consider the statement about Jews that readers could think that Jews need to convert to Christianity to be saved to be supportive here. And my remark that Christians convert to Judaism a lot as much as Jews converting to Christianity is not factual and not relevant as to if the statement in question is supportive or not, which you may consider to be that I have used the tactic of evasion here. I am sorry if you could feel misled here and think that I am not neutral in respect to allowing statements that are unsupportive concerning Judaism to be seen as supportive here or that I am denying Lou, the Jewish member here, equal protection of my rules..
If you think that I am doing this to create and develop anti-Semitic hate here, or to inflict emotional distress upon Jews, you could write to The American Psychiatric Association at {give contact information here}.

Mr. Hsiung,
You now write that you agree that the statement in question, [...convert to be saved...], is not supportive and you are allowing it anyway. You also wrote,[...I don't consider it hate-speech..].
I now think that there is a real and present danger here by you leaving the statement to be seen as supportive as that a subset of readers could think that you and any deputy of record are validating what the statement could purport, which could lead to the deaths of Jews as either being victims of antisemitic violence or , let's say, A Jewish reader in depression feels put down that you allow a statement that could be seen as saying that Jews are inferior human beings without salvation and need to convert to be saved. This could trigger a Jewish person in depression that came here for support to feel stigmatized and unworthy of being a member here as being seen as unequal and have feelings of unworthiness and hopelessness that could lead them to kill themselves.
Another aspect of this is that those readers that already have feelings of superiority over Jews, which could mean that they consider Jews to be inferior, could feel that you and any deputy of record are validating what the statement could purport and be easily recruited by terrorists bent on killing Jews.
I am asking that you open the post in question where the statement appears initially and type right down in the post something like:
Owners' note:
Be advised that I do not consider the statement to be support but I am going to let it stand anyway because in my thinking it will be goof this community as a whole to do so. You may think otherwise based on world events being shown on television now, and you may know the history of European fascism, and you may think that the statement is against the Jews here, which is what anti-Semitism entails. If you don't like it, you can contact that ADL or some other Jewish advocacy group and I could tell them that it's my forum and I'll do what I want to, do what I want to, and I am going to continue to allow the statement to be seen as supportive here because I think it will be good for this community as a whole, good for this community as a whole, to do so.

Lou's first worst offer to Mr.. Hsiung

Posted by Lou Pilder on February 23, 2015, at 11:21:59

Mr. Hsiung,
In order for our differences to be settled here, I am offering that in order to do so that the archives here be limited to one year. What this would entail is that:
A. When a post is one year old, it falls off the forum so that it can not be actuated again.
B. The 3 consecutive post rule be abolished
C. Threads here that involve a post that is more than one year old be deleted in toto
D. Parents seeking information concerning drugging their child be told the following:
We do not endorse drugging children so only posts that are against drugging children are allowed here.
E. The TOS/FAQ be modified to reflect whatever you want changed and the changes will be made known to the readers by having an opening page with the changes and then a button to press to go to the forum saying that, "I have read the changes... proceed to the main page"
F. A deputy system with at least 3 deputies and one Jewish deputy be established
G. other good and just additions/deletions

This forum doesn't exist to promote one side of the discussion only. So long as they are civil, posters can write things which do not agree with your point of view.

We'd also need one atheist, one agnostic, one Humanist, one Christian, one muslim, one Sikh, one Hindu, one Buddist..... :)

In reply to Re: The Hsiung-Pilder discussion, posted by Dr. Bob on February 15, 2015, at 22:45:58

Mr. Hsiung,
You claim here that the statement in question does not constitute hate speech in your thinking. I say to you that it depends on the jurisdiction that one is in when they post the statements in question that I am attempting to have you purge here or post a repudiation to. It also depends on what jurists consider to be in the definition of the terms used to decide if the speech is hate speech or not. In the U.S., the terms used are {disparaging} and {intimidating}. This means that if the speech intimidates or disparages the target person or group on , as here, religion. The speech could also apply to other entities such as ethnic origin, race, sexual orientation and such. But here in our discussion, the emphasis is on if the speech is disparaging and/or intimidation of Jews as the test if it is hate speech or not. Other countries have different tests to determine hate speech.
In France, the test is if the speech insults or defames, as in the case here, Jews. Or if the speech {incites discrimination against} or incites hatred or harm or provokes ethnic hatred..
You may not think the statements in question constitute hate-speech. But I do.
I do because I understand the meaning of {insult} and {defame} and {hatred} and what it means to {provoke} hatred. And I understand that your rules say that if you do nothing to the statement, that it is not against your rules, and until you post in your TOS/FAQ differently, I think that statement by you still means what it means and says what it says and is what it is as it can be seen. But more than that, you say that even if a statement is against your rules, you could allow it to be seen as supportive because {by allowing it to be seen as supportive, it will be good for this community as a whole in your thinking}. I understand what you mean by that, and I say that leaving anti-Semitic propaganda to be seen here as supportive, will in no wise in my thinking be good for this community as a whole. I am prohibited by you to post here what could inform readers about those that said the same thing that you have here in the annuals of European fascism. I base this in the fact that the statement has been used for the justification for slavery and infanticide and segregation and discrimination and genocide, and as I see the historical record, those that tried to persuade the members of their community that they were doing good for the community as a whole by making genocide and the others state-sponsored, got away with slavery and genocide until the people could not wait any longer to see this "good" that was promised by the leaders saying to trust them. For people to trust one that allows anti-Semitic hate propaganda to be seen as supportive, could be un informed and prohibited to know, and it's so easy to persuade the un informed. It's so easy.

Lou,

First of all, my impression is that psychiatric medication is possibly overprescribed to children in some areas of the the US, mainly for ADHD symptoms. Such prescribing occurs to a much lesser extent elsewhere.

When prescribing to children, the potential for long-term changes to neurological function needs to be given special consideration; the brain is still developing. I do not believe that this issue has received adequate study, particularly considering how frequently stimulants are used. If stimulants were risk-free, I would not consider the high prescribing rates to represent possible overprescribing, but since they are not risk-free, I do.

>Even if there was such an improvement, would you advocate that the child be drugged with that drug if was addicting?

How do you define addicting in this case?

Every decision to prescribe medication should occur on an individual basis. The risks vs benefits need to be weighed up.

......................

In terms of the benefits, it would be necessary to consider:

-How severe (or chronic) is the patient's (child's) illness/disorder?

-Apart from medication, have other treatment options been explored?

-What level of improvement is the medication likely to produce? And is this improvement likely to persist?

In terms of risks:

-What side effects have occurred, or are occurring?

-How will side effects be monitored and dealt with?

-How will the prescriber monitor the effectiveness of treatment, to ensure that ineffective medication is not continued?

-How will the prescriber ensure that prescribed stimulants are not diverted?

-What is the potential for physical and psychological dependence?

-What is the risk of long-term neurological changes when amphetamines and amphetamine-like drugs are taken during brain development?

In terms of your question about addiction, I think that it's important to consider early on during treatment how helpful (or unhelpful) the drug has been. If a stimulant proves unhelpful or harmful, it should be discontinued within the first few weeks. The will minimise the risk of withdrawal symptoms. In some cases it will be necessary to reduce the dose gradually.

The usefulness of the drug needs to be reassessed at intervals and discontinued where appropriate.

I hope this answers your question.

Mr. Hsiung,
You say that you can leave statements that are not supportive here, including but not limited to defamation toward me and antisemitic propaganda that could stigmatize Jews and create a hostile environment here against Jews and spread to terrorists networks that could give them the thinking that a psychiatrist is ratifying the hate as I see what you are doing here.
What I am asking now is that you post here your thinking as why it will be good for this community as a whole to allow anti-Semitic propaganda and defamation toward me to be seen here as supportive. In this posting that I am asking from you could include any struggle that you could be harboring in your mind to go against your own rules to allow the anti-Semitic hate to be seen as civil by you here without you posting your tag line to sanction the statements in question. If readers knew of your vision, if any, that you see happenijg in the future as allowing the anti-Semitic propaganda to be seen as supportive here, that could go a long way for Jews and others to know what your thinking entails and they could respond accordingly. As of now, I do not know what this "good" is that will happen to your community by you allowing the anti-Semitic propaganda and defamation to be seen as supportive. Who does it support and why?

I wouldn't say I'm leaving it there to be seen as supportive; I'd just say I'm leaving it there. Or, if I'm leaving it to be seen as supportive, I'm also leaving your statements to be seen as supportive.

And, I'm less worried than you about those statements leading to violence.

True. I consider this my jurisdiction.

OK, reasonable people can disagree.

True, the historical record is rife with injustice, and unjust leaders. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. In a way, I see you as the voice of eternal vigilance.

Mr. Hsung,
Let there be no misunderstanding here. You wrote;
[...I would not say that I am leaving it {the collection of statements that defame Jews and others that I am objecting to here as being allowed to be seen as supportive by you}there to be seen as supportive...].
Well, if you are not leaving them to be seen as supportive, why are you leaving them since they can be seen as supportive by you?

I'm leaving them because they're contributions to the discussion here. Like I leave your posts because they're contributions to the discussion here.

Mr.Hsiung,
You wrote,[...I'm leaving them (the anti-Semitic statements and others in our discussion here that can be seen as supportive and will in my thinking, Lou, be good for the community as a whole for them to be seen that way)because they are contributions to the discussion here...].
I am unsure as to what you are wanting to mean here. If you could post answers to the following, then I could have the opportunity to respond accordingly.
True or False:
A. I will open each of the posts with the unsanctioned anti-Semitism and type right down in the post something like:
Owner's note:
Be advised that the anti-Semitic statement(s) in this post are not conducive to the civic harmony and welfare of this community and not supportive and could lead a Jew and others to feel that their faith is being put down. If you want to discuss this, use the following link to the administrative board. http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/admin/....
B. I will do no such thing, Lou. If I was to do that, I would have to admit that a subset of readers could make the conclusion that myself and my deputies of record collaborated to defame Judaism and inflict emotional distress upon you by leaving those statements to be seen as civil by us.
C. I am going to accept your first worst offer, Lou, and delete all the archives past one year old.
D. I will send an email to all members, past and present, that explains that the anti-Semitic statements allowed by me and my deputies of record to be seen as supportive here, were allowed by us to be seen that way originally so that Jews could be the target of hate and that could be discussed here, and now I am going to stop that by telling you that I have changed my mind and the reason is so that the anti-Semitism being allowed by us to be seen as civil and not against the rules here, can be discussed here on the admin board because they are contributions to a discussion here. If you do not accept that reasoning, you can contact the American Psychiatric Association.
"Dr. Bob"
Lou PIlder

No, I'm not going to do that. Like I'm not going to add disclaimers to any of your posts. Some readers have already concluded that I'm collaborating with you to inflict emotional distress, anyway.

Mr. Hsiung,
I reject your attempt here to justify leaving statements that could arouse hatred toward Jews to be seen as civil by you where they are originally posted. And if others accept your justification, that would not annul the fact that anti-Semitic statements are being allowed by you and your deputies or record to be seen as supportive here where I have offered you the opportunity to post a disclaimer that you are leaving them to be seen as supportive as they stand without your tagline to please be civil, but you do not consider them to be supportive. And worse, by the nature that they stand un repudiated by you and your deputies of record, readers could think that it will be good for your community as a whole in your thinking for them to be seen as supportive by you where they are originally posted. And until you post where they are originally posted some type of disclaimer that they are not going to be good in your thinking for the whole community to be seen as civil by you, the hate that is in those statements unsanctioned could be infused into the minds of young people and adults and be acted out in violence toward the Jews as that a psychiatrist, and a teacher, which are powerful influences on young minds as seeing you as the exemplar here, is allowing hate to be seen as being supportive by you.
Be advised, my friend, that I do not accept any reason in your thinking to justify leaving posts where they are originally posted that could foster hatred toward the Jews here to be seen as supportive and in your thinking will be good for this community as a whole. You say that you only take responsibility for posts that you author. Your posts here that attempt to justify leaving anti-Semitism to be seen as supportive where those posts are originally posted, is what you could take responsibility for, for you have rejected the opportunity that has been given to you to remediate and clarify that you do not consider the statements to be supportive. And by this rejection of yours to post a disclaimer to those statements, in my thinking you are saying that you will take responsibility for any injuries or deaths or suicides that arise out of readers seeing that you are allowing hatred toward the Jews to be seen as supportive where those posts are originally posted, and worse, you are rejecting the opportunity to post a disclaimer to show otherwise.
Lou
