I wonder if we could get a ruling from the mods on this.
I've noticed for some time posters hostile to Christianity use the abbreviation Xian instead of the full term. Xian is a well-known putdown on the internet, for example, on Richard Dawkins' website.
Personally, I find this offensive and disrespectful. It is Babble policy to avoid hateful and insulting terminology, which this clearly is.
Can the mods make a statement that this is unacceptable behaviour?
