Yes there is. But when the rhetoric becomes spam and what can only be described as trolling, it's another thing altogether. People are going to interpret it as they see fit. Sandy would not be the best example, but yeah, we can only tell you what we know and how we see it. Sure there will be some (probably only Sandy herself) who could claim that she was banned for her political views, but when we consider that even other bible thumping and Bush loving conservatives were asking us why and how she could be allowed to remain on this forum due to her trolling, it kind of gives some indication that she came here to goad and flame people with her trolling. When she returned as Diane, she was given a second chance and monitored. But within a few posts, she was back to the same old spam and trolling. While the words "political rhetoric" may not have been the best choice, at the end of the day she was banned for spamming and trolling with the exact same crap that had her thrown out the last time. Had we listened to the other Bible thumping Bush loving conservatives on this forum, she'd probably have been banned much sooner.
