Exactly. As I mentioned to Eric Griggs, this really drives home a point to me.

Nothing this guy said would have violated any policies on Quora. Even though he’s an obnoxious bigot, his homophobia is the sort routinely tolerated by Quora moderation.

My comments, however, would not be. We’re not allowed to call bigotry bigotry on Quora. The homophobes have free reign.

Notice that here on Medium, his comments were deleted with a quickness.

I like it.
