      >Susan, I do not like banning. Existentialism is about freedom,at least it is to me. Certainly most of us here have been at odds with Dick but that does not make him banned. The most recent attacks on Dick were most violent and profane. I do not pretend to know what existentialism says about kicking a man when he is down but common decency makes that sort of authoritaranism anathama. Now as a brit he has no implied first amendment rights but as a US owned site I would think we would extend our cherished freedoms to others.If not as Americans your husband and you should cherish free speech as an acedemic right .Don`t ban Dick, don`t ban anyone for their ideas,argue with them but do not ban.

In a group struggling for its numerical existance doctrinal excommunications seem suicidal. Don`t duck it Susan,what gives? Bill
