Well this discussion has certainly went way off topic.
Well no shit Sherlock. You have the right to say whatever you want. If you shout out that Africans are subhuman, you have the legal right to do so. Employers can fire at-will employees instantly for any reason. It's their right by the contract. If Yoel Romero wants to go on some "EAT THE POO POO" rant, you can't stop him. They can turn off the camera, fire him, and remove him from their private property but they can't stop or physically punish him from saying or publishing it . What are the UFC going to do? Cut his tongue out for blasphemy against the liberal creed like Saudi Arabia crucifies Shiite theologians? You can say what you want as he can say what he wants as long he doesn't threaten physical harm or incite others to do so. If the Fertitta brothers and Dana White want him to go for any reason and he's an at-will employee, it's their business.
I don't even know what the point of the argument is, or why people are arguing it, nor do I even know how it got here. Seems like a pointless argument, but what do I know?
well, this thread derailed.Going to talk to Marv and crew about a "no dumbassery" rule for Chang 2.0. That might cause half my posts to be moderated though.
How about "you can joke and make remarks but not in certain places"?Like, say... the measurement forums, the headphone discussion, etc...I'm sure dumbassery in the off-topic section is very appropriate and should, in fact, be encouraged.
