Why is that?
The question was 'In your experience, do people act in their own best interest?'.
That itself was a statement, without any supporting points, which constitutes personal belief that people are inherently blind. (That might also be a doubt that Yorick is acting in his own interest, but that's another story).
Yorick just could not make a point that could not be discredited.
He could just say 'yes they do, I believe' and they would be even.
But he tried to elaborate on the destructive cause of questioning common sense and happened to mention God, which offended many.
There are many baseless things said on the forum which are not even called bullshit.
But using religion concepts in a context, not as an argument, but rather as a form of expression, amounts to a rule violation.
That equates religion concepts with expletives.
That is not right.
Sorry for this OT and my English.
Btw, I don't support Yorick's opinion about licensing policies. Serious music makers can choose whatever they want, but this Discover sandbox is for the masses.
