I agree that the last three events are hurtful as they are a direct message to the OP. I have different thoughts about the firstly mentioned event i.e
@RamAbloh I don't worship shiva because he is too tamasic for my tastes. Same with his wife. ~ Ikshvaku
Though I agree that this is an ill discussion this was not a direct message to the OP. This was a casual discussion between two different users about their beliefs and understanding.
Generally, as Pandya mentioned, any user going through their chat transcript felt offended by any of their discussion, can flag those comments. But from a mod's perspective, it should not be considered as action needed, because:
- This was a casual discussion and people who were discussing it have no problem with it. (read the chat transcript here)
- The discussion was not on the Hinduism chatroom where we have our own community understanding discussions to take place.
In other words, we can't restrict users to have a casual discussion about their beliefs on other Stackexchange network chatrooms.
If the mods or community is taking some actions (banning, avoiding, disrespecting, etc) based on such different beliefs then we are thinking of this site as "practicing Hindu religion" but not discussing it. Taking action by the mods or community is clearly unwelcoming for non-Hindus.
I am mentioning all these because of my discussion with the user TheLittleNaruto on the Hinduism chatroom. You can read the transcript here
To put more weight on "avoiding/ignoring" (or insult), I do feel there are people who avoid others just because they have different opinions/beliefs. This should be avoided here if we really want to move this site to graduation as one community.
