Ok I'll rephrase - just because you find something offensive doesn't mean that a person should be, to use your own words,punished or corrected. Who do you thing you are? What makes you the arbiter of what others can or cannot say?
Well, what makes you any better an authority? Who are we to contradict Jon Snow saying that this is an abusive use of such terms?I dislike the stupid phrase "nanny state" though I guess you don't as you seem to use the expression freely and for no apparent reason.
I spy an alternative fact! I think I've used the phrase exactly once on this site, quoted above, for the reason above.If you believe that the contents of a post here is illegal under the Equality act then report it to the authorities.
Not what I believe or wrote. I asked what you thought of it and you're sidestepping instead of answering.
I'm not claiming to be an authority better or otherwise. It's not me who is saying that things I find offensive should be banned censored etc nor that people who say them should be punished. You are.
As for Jon Snow. Either a TV newsreader or a character from Game of Thrones. Whichever one you're referring to doesn't condition my thoughts on this or any other matter.
I think my answer re the equality act showed what I thought of it. It's to tackle stuff that matters not the ramblings of folk on an obscure website. You obviously disagree so what do you think of it.
Did I comment on the number of times you'd said nanny state. I merely said you'd used it freely and for no apparent reason in your post though you are, of course, entitled to use the ridiculous phrase as much as you like.
