I dunno, PH. It looks like a fairly even-handed application of a 'three strikes you're out' policy on Robert's part...
I think nuking the thread was over-kill. What did he hope to accomplish? Did he think that doing this was going to somehow stop future political posts here? Given the egregious crap that was permitted to go on here for years with several well known suspects, this seemed like a lazy way out.
The TOS for the WS site says political posts are "subject" to deletion. I didn't see the post(s) that precipitated the locking of the thread in question, but most of the political discourse I say there was good natured and funny. The TOS also say that "offenders" would get an e-mail warning them of the inappropriate post(s). I know I've made a post or twelve in violation of the TOS and I haven't heard a peep.
