What's your stance on racism and coded racism as I would put it?
The facts that I'd addressed/dismissed almost exactly what he posted [minus the clever-clever addition of "retard"] in a PM before he chose to put it up in the main forum is a tacit indication that he's chose not to comply.
My stance on bias-related discrimination [racism/sexism/heterosexism/religious bias] is that it has no place here.

There are better ways to make a point, but I'm not seeing it as ban worthy, unless someone complains and the user is warned.
In this context, I read it as a deliberate passive-aggressive addition designed to needle the point about discrimination. I have no interest in going down a slope where I'm expected to justify each of my actions [this is not a democracy], and I could see it coming up as a problem, why single out gay people and ignore the plight of discriminated-against handicapped.
I'm not going to play that game.

I don't think so. I'm not even considering it at this point.
