This sort of content is inappropriate to the site and I'd appreciate it if someone cleaned up this mess?

    A 7 day suspension? Are you sure? Read some of the pages on that site.

    We should learn from that other website with usergenerated content en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:No_Nazis quite a few good policy ideas there that could be used to improve SE sites.

    A 7 day suspension can turn into a longer ban or even a suspension. I am personally Jewish, and I find that site to be offensive to the point of ridiculousness. Give a person like that the benefit of the doubt; they will surely mess up. The site is a self-parody of web design and philosophy. Feb 7 at 5:14
  • That site reminds me of the bad old days, in more ways than one.

  • Be grateful that some Nazis don’t know about HTML5, CSS3 and responsive layout frameworks. Feb 7 at 19:37

While we don't want that sort of content here - but we don't police what people do off this site, and unless there's a clear interaction or reproduction of that content on the site, well its not our problem.

Where it is, we can deal with it in context but we're not going to suspend people for what's on their personal spaces outside SE perview.

Said content has been cleared up (partially for being off topic) and we've communicated our expectations both of topicality, and that folks are uncomfortable with some of this content leaking into the site via their questions.

    unless there's a clear interaction or reproduction of that content on the site dude posted a link to a nazi website... Imagine being Jewish or LGBTQ+ on SU/SE (or any other site where posting a link to a nazi website gets you only a 7 day suspension and the person who reported the nazi gets threatened with a block for using the word that starts with s and means poop)

    @Gantendo I would rather this guy prove himself to be banworthy than preemptively ban him. Let him prove his worth. Feb 7 at 5:16

    @Giacomo1968 Posting a link to a nazi site is banworthy imho. We already have plenty of evidence what not banning them leads to. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_of_tolerance

    @Gantendo I agree about the “Paradox of Tolerance” but I feel this is different. I believe in the concept of “Give someone enough rope, and they will hang themselves.” and that this clown will soon “hang himself.” Feb 7 at 18:41
  • I'd like to believe 99.99% of folks have an intolerance to Nazi viewpoints, and I understand the point @Gantendo is making, yet unless the user's including their views in a question (which has been deleted and I can't view), banning/suspending them isn't going to solve anything - a new account will be created by the user and the question asked leaving out the viewpoints. This applies to pretty much everything - I've come across questions where there's a strong possibility the question being asked is for malicious purposes, but with no clear indication. That's a slippery slope to go down
