Who here is disgusted with the Nazi badge?

So, what's with the Nazi badge that Drew_theist has? I'm not defending Drew_theist's behavior, in a way I think he deserves it, but I this is wrong.

Here are the reasons I'm against it:

1. I just don't want to look at a swastika! Isn't there an image that gets the point across without a swastika on it?

2. This will stigmatize anyone who has the badge.

3. This could drive off theist.

So what do you think?

[MOD ANSWER: DREW HAS THE BADGE BECAUSE HE ASKED FOR IT.]

in case you haven't noticed yet, this is a trend.

True, but it was poetic justice that he got a swastika instead.....

Well, that is what is happening, I can understand if someone wanted to take a parting shot at him after all his trolls.

 

 

"Hitler burned people like Anne Frank, for that we call him evil.
"God" burns Anne Frank eternally. For that, theists call him 'good.'

Hmm...hadn't thought of it that way. BTW, thanks for not using the word "irony."

Yeah, his thread selection

Yeah, his thread selection is so very trollish.  He's on the list.

I don't like words like "poetic justice" in so-called rational debate,

especially this one. Sapient took a serious course of action in labeling Drew-theist with a Nazi symbol, and it seems he takes this course of action pretty lightly.

The swastika wasn't a parting shot, he'd had it for at least a couple of days. I, like Vessel thought it was part of his Avatar, and I didn't know what statement he was trying to make...

Even still it was not the right course of action to take.

It wasn't at least a couple of days. I saw the badge the night it was applied, and started this thread the next morning. Drew_theist didn't do much debating after that.

I'm getting tired of this thread. The matter is settled in my mind.

And the thread will now be closed as a result.  Sorry you were discouraged by the badge Rage, several mods and our whole stickam room agreed when it was made that there would be a fall out, and we were bracing ourselves.  I don't think we expected he would stay with the badge for very long. 

 

Darth Josh is making a warning thread to the several other trolls on our board right now, they've been given a very long leash, and a bunch could be cut soon.
