so, i guess the question is who is going to be next in line for this censorship crap.
u want a public board, but u shut down ppl who share diff opinions that you.
Let me make this very clear. This is not an act against free speech. First off this is not a public board owned by the people. It is a private bulletin board owned by an individual where people are aloud to post publicly. He can and does regulate the content. Didn't you guys read the rules before you signed up? It is no different then coming into my house and talking trash. I can censor it there. If you want to exercise your freedom of speech do it on your own form. That is what free speech is about. It is not about speaking out in private area where your comments are unwelcome and meant to be inflammatory. Your speech can and will be censored here.
As Mongrel already said, this is a Private forum and the owner/ admin. can do whatever they want with the site.
Additionally, I find it very annoying when people spell like gutter trash while writing on message boards. Which brings me to my point:
This is, IMO, a great message board that has always been unique in that the memberships is generally a cut above all the morons out there in cyber space. I feel that if there is a member or members that appear to be damging the integrity of board, for any reason, the owner/ admin. has the right to boot them.
