Why is this site so strict about the wording of posts? I've had two posts removed recently for being "antagonistic" when the worst term I used was "idiotic". Not even in reference to a specific person either, simply criticizing how certain groups hold contradictory ideas. I don't understand why the site feels the need to be THAT strict about posts. I mean, maintains order is nice, and preventing people from being completely out of line, but just calling hypocrisy "idiotic"? Are we not allowed to express at all negative views about anything anymore? Basically, why is this site so strict, and how does it determine what is "antagonistic"?

You'd want to talk with admins in regards to the posts.
If it looks like a post is being meant to antagonize another user which means the debate would be more hostile than friendly than a mod will mark it as such. In the end the admins review the posts. Nobody's perfect. Friendly debates are great but a debate that gets full of name calling and such is not a good thing.
I notice you're mentioning groups and stereotypes so it sounds like you mighta been in a controversial topic. I'd be very careful of those "hot topics" honestly because if people have strong opinions much like you're mentioning it can be very easy to offend somebody even if you don't mean to. I'm not saying to "walk on eggshells" when you type but just have that thought in the back of your mind. Pretend as if you're talking to people in front of you. Anonymity easily causes people to talk differently without the confrontation. So things people would not say in a group of people become a lot easier for people to say at a computer screen. If you have a passion for something and somebody called it idiotic, you might be offended but if it's something you don't care about, you wouldn't be. So just keep that in mind.0
