There is no need to make it seem as if there is some sort of conspiracy against the non-Muslim members here, since the rules apply to everyone not just a certain group or members of a certain religion. Special attention is not granted to anyone, and neither do we bend the rules for anyone - Muslim or non-Muslim.
Now, contrary to popular belief, the moderators cannot read minds, neither do we have eyes on the back of our heads. All posts are not read, since we all lead busy lives. If a member or thread is getting out of hand, report it. Or if you wish, you can PM a moderator or admin that you trust.
Also, I'd like to add that I've witnessed some members 'trolling' in threads were no provocation occured. So the excuse given is a rather weak one.

Please stop trying to depict LI as some oppressive/tyranical regime, because if anything, we were too lenient with the respective members. If LI did not accept dialogue between members of other beliefs, then we would not have non-Muslim members still here, who have been here as early as 2005. However, some members have the dignity and respect to verbalise their opinions in an honourable manner, whilst others pounce upon any opportunity to insult and ridicule Islaam and Muslims. The first is acceptable, whilst the latter is not. You may not be entirely satisfied with that, but let me repeat; the rules of this forum are determined by the administrator and not the member. I hope that clears any confusion you may have had on the matter.
