    Follow Nickb’s link. You will need to go toward the end of the comments. There is no issue of risk management or self-preservation involved with DPF’s decision. There are times when it is increasingly apparent that a poster is so poisoned and cancerous that he/she has to be excised. D4j displayed a malignancy that cannot and should not be tolerated by any right thinking citizens. My only problem is that by banning him we pretend he does not exist. He does and will no doubt spread his poison in other venues.

    Your position is like the lefty who says “oh, you prefer free market solutions? You must be an anarchist then”. Its similarly extreme.

    You seem to think that the liberal ideal of freedom of speech extends as far as not walking away from people saying offensive things. Or to allow spammers to post comments. How is that any different?

    Its “freedom of speech”, not “obligation to listen”.

    tvb,

    No, KB is David’s private space. It is, in fact, analagous to the private space that is your house.

    – The Internet is the window into the house. Those passing by (URL) can look inside.
    – Looking inside does not grant right of entry
    – User registration is the door to allow entry into the house
    – DPF [ ] comments and demerits are how he guides appropriate behaviour for his guests

    As with your house, David is under no obligation to allow anyone in, or to remain. Similarly he can ask people to leave for his own reasons and is under no obligation to justify them – just as is the case in your home.

    His evicting D4J is to freedom of speech what you asking a guest behaving inappropriately [to you] to leave your home is.

    Although I think it is pretty disgusting attacking someone who is so obviously grieving for a recently lost parent, the likes of Cameron Slater really do incite this form of attack as a consequence of their utter contempt for the values and sensitivities of others.

    For the life of me I cannot remember anything Dad4Justice or Peter Burns has contributed anywhere, apart from the Whaleoil contribution, and I am a little disappointed in seeing Farrar overreact, regardless of the bile apparent, to a comment on someone else’s blog. You either believe in free speech or you do not; believing in free speech with limitations is not a belief in free speech; believing in speech within limitations is an endorsement of restricted speech.

    Those here who support Farrar’s decision to ban Peter Burns do not support free speech, and this decision is anathema to the lip service Farrrar pays to his belief in the ideals of classic liberalism.

    This has nothing to do with free speech.

    Free speech means I can say whatever I want, and the government can’t make it illegal. It doesn’t mean that we have to publish everything that someone else wants to say.

    Free speech isn’t an issue in this incident at all.

    I agree strongly with free speech, and defend Burn’s right to say what he did. But he can say it on his own blog, or on a street corner, or in a newsletter he writes himself. No-one else has an obligation to publish what he says.

    D4J has a history of abusing all & sundry when he loses the plot which occurs on a fairly frequent basis. If you go back to 9th Dec last year (on GD from memory) you’ll get an idea about what he’s like.

    In this particular instance he managed 110 demerits in 22 minutes for, as far as I know, an all time KB record & it didn’t stop there…..he kept abusing DPF by email afterwards. Your sympathy is well misplaced.

    As an editor / broadcaster I tried to publish everything that wasn’t outright illegal (and even then only to preserve the survival of particular medium) but I wasn’t obliged to do so. If I took a decision not to publish someone’s correspondence, or to “dump” them and cut them off air, then their freedom of speech assured them of the right to publish their own newsletter, or invest in a bullhorn and a stepladder and see what sort of audience they could draw. And I’d be there defending their right to do so.

    From what has been said here, Burns’ diatribe was a disgusting personal attack levelled at a grieving individual who has just lost his beloved mother. Even a degenerate leftie like me knows that there are times, places and appropriate circumstances for robust exchange of views and quite another when someone is in deep mourning for the death of a parent. And I’ve said exactly the same thing when Barbara Summer Burstyn delivered her mindless diatribe against the late Corporal Jacinda Baker. Cam is in probably quite enough pain as it is without Burns adding to it. At times like this, I don’t care about ideological labels.

She certainly came across as somebody willing to engage other views, something not that common these days. Gently reminded of those one does not easily swear or curse in front of because of the dignity they hold. Salute.

    Nasska referred to the D4J meltdown thread above.

    Here’s a challenge for those who feel inclined to defend D4J’s “contributions” (in the broadest sense of the word):

    – Start here.
    – Identify which of D4J’s apparently defamatory comments qualify as “freedom of speech” (bearing in mind that DPF has censored the naughty bits, to avoid any prospect of vicarious liability as blog host).
    – Next, state whether or not D4J is entitled to make defamatory comments on his own blog.
    – Finally, for bonus points, please explain why DPF is obliged to publish such “contributions” on his own blog.

    D4J’s comments on Whale’s blog were out of place and if DPF wants to retaliate with a life ban then that’s his call. I’ve got no problem with that.

    What is hard to take is the hypocritical posturing of those self righteous sanctimonious commenters on this thread who have often been just as offensive in comments on Kiwiblog and elsewhere.

    I’ve read some disgusting filth directed at Lucia Maria. Sarah Palin too has been the target of some equally repulsive insults. Just a couple of prominent examples. Hate and derision and ridicule directed at their political opponents, especially those who challenge their cultural dictates, is a common and frequent strategy of the left.

    The progressive left are mostly cowardly and stinking hypocrites who are only morally outraged when it suits them, or there is some political advantage in it.

    Their complaints on this thread therefore are hollow and hypocritical and sickening in their falsity and inconsistency.

    I agree with RB on this, except that it can come from across the spectrum, and RB is known to dish out repulsive insults as well, making his comments a bit ironic – but he probably doesn’t know who he is.

    The progressive left are mostly cowardly and stinking hypocrites who are only morally outraged when it suits them, or there is some political advantage in it.

    So RB starts a comment well and turns it into a farce with his hypocrisy. But that’s classic Redhypocrite.

    Its not across the political spectrum at all.

    It is the strategy constantly employed by PG and so many other contemptible and repellent left wing cowards. There is no left winger who has had to suffer the cacaphony of hate that Sarah Palin and her family have had to suffer.

I am glad he is not pursuing a political career. The first amendment does not apply. Anyhow one day whether this blog is on the nature of a public space or private space will get tested. Strangely DPF’s assertion that it is private place may work against him legally for any defamatory comments but a commenter. I assume it is private space for some purposes but not others.

    Edit-

    Yes, totally agree trans. That eighty per cent of this thread is concerned with explaining such a simple issue is a good measure of the average intellect on Kiwiblog.

    Pity in some ways that DPF banned D4J, I was looking forward to seeing how long it would have taken the prick to rack up enough demerit points to be banned again once his current ban had ended. I figured that it would have taken him about ten minutes.

    Let’s be frank about D4J, despite his claims of unfair treatment at the hands of the cops he is a man who has had no less than six protection orders issued against him, he has also had his gun license revoked by the police. The man is clearly mad and it is no surprise that he is well known to the cops.

    Fuck him, he will not be missed, the guy is a piece of shit.

    “Although I think it is pretty disgusting attacking someone who is so obviously grieving for a recently lost parent, the likes of Cameron Slater really do incite this form of attack as a consequence of their utter contempt for the values and sensitivities of others.”

    Yes, Slater does invite bad responses with some of the crap he throws. On the other hand, one has to stoop very very low to accept that invitation (if not quite as low as d4j did in this case) and that’s not the sort of thing anyone ought to do.

    By all means mock him for his philandering, but not for a family bereavement.

    In four years I’ve banned two people from my blog and it’s been a blessed relief to everyone to see the back of them.

    I’m happy to allow the most robust debate from any quarter, but personal abuse earns the abuser a warning, then they’re gone.

    (Or if it’s bad abuse, they’re gone straight away.)

    And so I defend David’s right to tell his visitors to leave if they disrupt the party. (Or even if, as in this case, they make so much trouble at someone else’s place that he no longer wants them to visit.)

    To be honest, the male backlash movement has always reminded me of its mirror image, radical lesbian seperatists- imprisoning themselves within their own little coteries, droning on and on and on about their oppression, and lashing out at anyone who violates their particular concept of ideological purity. Tends to remind somewhat of Trotskyites on the far left, and, unfortunately, the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis crowd. Too taken with the echoing sound of their own voices and too little with relevant political activism and realistic goals.

    Hey, we live in a small country. Even if we do not share particular political worldviews, there is no call for incivility and demagoguery, even if one is debating political opponents. I may be on the opposite side of the political fence from many of your posters when it comes to some issues, although not others- my social liberalism deserts me when it comes to P/crystal methamphetamine and hard drugs, child sexual abuse of any kind anywhere, and violent crime against particularly vulnerable members of society such as the intellectually or otherwise disabled and the elderly (given that my parents are in their late seventies and early eighties themselves). And there’s some overlap between National and Labour over shared concerns such as the importance of free trade. Also, I tend to agree with some of the criticisms of radical Shia and Sunni Islamists, although I also think we need to be careful not to homogenise all New Zealand Muslims, especially.
