Ah, and how lucrative is it to misrepresent [] information?

Yes, sure. According to the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Agriculture is incredibly efficient... Verified by that most objective of sources known as "Politifact".

or do you realize now, that you've been informed of the misapprehensions of your own source

I didn't mean to make it sound that bleak. The first 8 hours are ok. They're productive. I don't sit here tearing my hair out doing nothing waiting for everyone to leave so I can type. I actually don't mind the open office plan very much. A private office would be *much* better, but this is ok.

But when I do work over for an hour or two I like it a whole lot more. I'm not terribly social (yeah I know, a computer programmer that's not terribly social go figure). I like to code in the dark and with a perfect quiet around me. It's much more pleasant and I seem to get a lot more done. Or maybe not - maybe I just enjoy it so much it feels like I get more done.

This is pretty much the point. There is a huge difference between trying to incite people to commit violence against people and stating an opinion. The question is whether that difference will be considered. "Kill all infidels!" must not be on the same level as "I disagree with what you said and here is why I think you're wrong".

Judging by the development in other social media I cannot say with good faith that I can trust this to be the case.

True, but in the end, the difference remains. When it's simply prostitution, what matters is money changes hands and one person, the person giving the money, will have his or her satisfaction. The satisfaction of the person receiving the money does not enter the equation. If anything, it's a bonus.

In a role play situation, the key element is that the recipient of the money is more interested in personal satisfaction than the monetary compensation.

If you run a personal blog talking about that stuff, then fair game

Is it? Suppose, he was into homo rather than heterosexual subjugation... Do you suppose, they would've banished him just as well — even if he were open about it?

should not be anyone's business but his.

Of course...
