I have not and do not deny that there have been intolerant posts made on BR. to that end your sense is correct. I do not know how different it is from the earlier age of BR since I was not a mod then and one can't truly understand what is happening unless the whole picture is visible to them.
stupid posts by themselves are not a problem, provided they are cleaned up. and this is where the direction thing you are talking of comes into play. they are cleaned up, all the time, without fail, whenever they are detected.(*) so unless the earlier BR allowed people to post bigoted posts there is no change in direction in this dimension.
with all due respect, calling BR a hindutva forum is a gross disservice to the people who try very hard to keep this place sane.
(*) this is a typical example, read on. what do you think happened to the errant postor's account ?
p.s. I still do not know if it is "I"dev or "L"dev. would appreciate a closure on this issue !
