Definitions from Oxford Languages ·

illiterate
/ɪˈlɪt(ə)rət/
adjective
unable to read or write.
Example:
"his parents were illiterate"

noun
a person who is unable to read or write.

Do you think this word is enough to ban someone for 4days While those that used harsher words are not banned 🚫

Seun, I will continue to draw your attention to the wrongs going on in nairaland

What you choose to do with the evidences is entirely up to you.

Lol... Nairaland people. Someone is clearly not an illiterate, you call them an illiterate with the obvious intention of spiting them, and then turn around to ask if it was an insult?

You defined illiterate as someone who can't read or write. And now your argument is that you don't know if the person you quoted is an illiterate? You read the person's comment and you replied knowing he'd read yours, and yet you don't know if the person can write/read. Lol... smart.

I don't think it's about the word but context...... Maybe the context sounds intimidating or aggressive
