@platorepublic,
There are rules which are available for all Members to read, and as long as there are rules, Moderators are charged with the responsibility of enforcing them using the best judgment they can. If anything, the staff here is extremely lenient and generous in interpreting whether an instance violates these rules and make an conscientious effort to give Members the benefit of the doubt. They should be applauded for not only giving their time to moderating this forum, but also for making a very serious effort, both as individuals and as a group, to do the best they can in supporting this community and the forum's mission statement.

@Emil,

You make it seem like I inferred that the US is a developing country because of a single incident. That is not the case. So that you can find a single incident of stupidity in some european country does nothing to me. There are many stupid things in the EU too. What do you think I am? Some blind zealot, EU-tionalist? Of course not.

And you make it sound as though I am basing my comment on a single law/incident. There are a great many more I can assure you. I did not mention for example the law in which it is illegal to urinate in a canal unless you are pregnant (blatantly sexist in my opinion). The Dutch party hard and I have booked my plane ticket post haste to Amsterdam. But make no mistake, the "Americans" party hard too. In Ohio for example, it is illegal to get a fish drunk. True story.

In turkey, it's against the law to fall in love with a neighbors son, daughter, wife, servant, or any of his animals (however, there is no mentioning of her

There is no law in Denmark against bestiality, and there shouldn't be either. There is a law against animal cruelty. If the sex act is in some way cruel to the animal, you can be changed with that. I doubt that the sheep thought it was a big problem with that fellow ******* it but who knows? Seems hard to judge after the fact whether some animal suffered from a sex act or not. One would have to reproduce a similar effect and observe how the animal behaves.
