    Why are people allowed to call people terrorists, but you can't say someone is wrong?

    Someone had called ALL Muslims terrorist, I reported and it went unnoticed, whereas I told someone they were wrong, and I got banned for 7 days... I feel Hubpages is setting double standards and I don't feel it is fair at all...

    What is the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter? It does not exists. It depends on the official status given by the government.

    In WW2 freedom fighters where seen as terrorists by Nazi Germany. now they are heroes.
    Osama Bin Laden was a freedom fighter fighting in the mujahideen against the Russians in Afgahnistan, he was seen as an good guy by the Americans at the time. then the Americans invaded Iraq and he saw this as an act of aggression and fought against the Amaricans and suddenly he was a terrorist.

      I mostly referring to a discussion on here. People were stating that ALL Muslims were terrorists, and when I told them they were ignorant, I was banned, I reported them for abuse, nothing happened... Why the double standard...

      I see that the thread is gone...that was some despicable hate speech against muslims, for sure. Saying they wallow in filth, etc. Figures they get no banishment and you do. Probably 20 or so reported you versus only you reporting them. Clique Rule.

      Really? If one person reports nothing happens? Versus many? I talked to hubpages they assured me that they take all reports seriously... But I'm still banned... sad

      It strange Ta-iset, did they tell you why you where banned? I think people should get a warning first before they get banned anyway, otherwise it is very rude behaviour by Hub page.
