I'm being ignored on #lj so I'll post this here.

Apparently hijinx made some anti-gay comments on channel. Someone kickbanned him, a lot of people are pissed off.

The way I see it, making anti-gay comments whether he meant them or not isn't against any posted rule anywhere and it simply a matter of opinion and covered under free speech. I asked this on channel but got no response. If people find his comments offensive, why don't they just /ignore him? I mean, if he was offending the channel majority, that'd be one thing, but to get banned from an open-topic free form chatroom because he offended a handful? I see /ignore to be a much easier and fair solution for all involved. Those who don't want to hear it, don't have to. This shouldn't be such a big production.
