    Well it's just there are alot of forums that ban people for it with the excuse of "Hate talk" or something.

    I'm not actually going to post anything I was just wondering if this forum has had any experience with this.

    There have been a couple in the past. The threads usually get locked because they get out of control.

    We can't promise something like that, but the odds are extremely unlikely that you could get yourself banned. Getting banned requires (generally) persistent, abusive behavior. Just posting highly controversial (to be generous) material won't do it.

    That said, have a thick skin and be ready for a negative reaction - not the least of which will come from me...

    No. :biggrin: If you go out of control, I can't promise anything.

    Denying the holocaust is like denying a tsunami hit Sri Lanka. You can deny it all you want but you can't erase the past. I've read the "holocaust denial" garbage, unbelievable.

    In fact, maybe Skepticism and Debunking would be a better place for it? And it would save Evo the trouble of watching the thread... (sorry Ivan).

    Smurf, if you ever have occasion to visit Washington, DC, you should make a point to visit the Holocaust museum.
