    Being tolerant of intolerance is essentially just skipping step one and doubling back to being intolerant. If anything its far worse than just being intolerant (which is often just plain ignorance).

    Fair enough. But it's hardly a paradox, which has already been explained here.

    Actually I am tolerant of his intolerance of this intolerance thread. However I understand your intolerance of my perceived intolerance.
