Or, you didn't read it correctly in haste to post on here something which you thought furthered your argument.

Well ….it sort of is. Not excusing the behaviour but if I had a bad experience somewhere I am unlikely to go there again.

If they received abuse specifically because of their disability by the management of that establishment that’s different. If they received abuse by patrons that wasn’t dealt with they may also have a point, but either way, would you go back?

If the abuse was from a house on the street, the answer isn't for the disabled man to be expected to use another route or put in ear plugs.
Well “on the street” is an issue and it also depends on the definition of “abuse”

Being “exposed” to something and something being “targeted” at you are two different things.

Or they could read it several times to make sure they actually understood it, instead of making rash statements based on incorrect comprehension.

Its a perfectly valid answer, just one you dont want to hear.

You clearly haven't got a clue what it's like to have a brain injury, even worse you don't even seem willing to try and understand. Let's hope you never have to find out the hard way.

If a member of a protected group is being unlawfully discriminated against, this behaviour must be stopped.

Anyone in business who displayed such a view is likely to face legal action or a visit from the police.

You "haven't got a clue" about me, or my family, so yet another rash statement.

So now you're confusing "abuse and offensive behaviour" (which is subjective btw) with "unlawfully discriminated", two completely different things.

This new legislation aims to set out the rules that we must all abide by, or face the consequences. By far, the vast majority of people won't need to make any changes as they already behave properly on the internet.
Well no, but the street is public land.

People should vote with their wallets. Not specific to disabilities, but #metoo led to a number of venues essentially outed as routinely tolerating harassment/spiking drinks/etc. Yet many of the people making the claim were regular in attendance.

Utterly bizarre. Don't fund someone who isn't looking after you.

If your disability makes you not be able to understand what you are reading correctly, maybe you should refrain from posting such links and quoting them?

The irony is strong in this one.

I do. And I’m pretty much certain I share none of the OP’s negative traits.

So do I. And because of this I have a level of understanding for the OP and do not target him when he posts as some do on this forum. Easy enough to ignore someone than target them for their issues which I believe is a form of bullying

No one is targeting Richard. If we all want a level playing field on interacting in the world, having a two tier system were some people are off limits isn't the way to go. If Richard posts on the understanding that he might not understand fully the context of what he has posted, then that's down to him, not everyone else to tip toe around him by allowing him to post things that are potentially untrue. It's so far away from bullying, it's laughable that it's even mentioned.

you see I post my point and the reply I get is it is laughable. You could have ignored my post or been at least polite in your disagreement but no you decided to post in a passive aggressive way. Guess you may well sit laughing at this reply too but you just proved my point.

Not as much as one certain poster on here who is know for being Really Chronic for such behaviour.

As a side note they’re also well known for it on Digital Spy - I know one of the mods and this person is a often a thorn in the side for testing the patience of their team by posting the same kind of thing regularly.

You call it bullying, I call it posting a reasoned reply. I'm not going to refrain from posting because you take things the wrong way, that's not the way forward.
