I accuse....

I accuse the responsibles of this forum of censorship.
I accuse the responsibles of this forum of anti-liberty of speech by closing several threads, without giving any reason.

Internet as not beomce national-net yet.

This has been argued over heaps in the past, and I think the mods have come to the conclusion that any thread will stay unless it reaches the point where it is nothing but a shit fight, or its achieving nothing and going round in circles. Also if a thread tends to swerve way off topic and loses its purpose of debate, its prolly best they get closed.
There's a difference between debating and fighting you'd have to agree.

I completely agree with you, but I was refering to MissZooropa's topic, about the United States listing terrorists all over the world. To me, there was some little pretentious bashing, but nothing important to the point of shutting the topic down without giving any reason at all. Liberty of speech ? Yes... but for some people I guess.

I've been around this forum enough to know that this thread will be closed.

And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

Yeah, I was wondering why that topic was closed too. I'm not criticising the mods decision, I just wondered why. Thanks.

And I'd posted something about immigration/refugees/asylum seekers - would it be okay if I started another post about that? I think it might be an interesting issue to have a discussion on but I don't want to start another thread if that was one of the reasons for the previous one being closed. Thanks in advance if someone answers.

Gem I agree with you on that bit. I had actually spent quite a bit of time replying to that only to find it had been closed in the time it took me to type it.

And Whizz, I think it would be great if you started an asylum seeker thread. Ive wanted to do one for a few weeks now, but kinda wasnt sure. If you start one, Id love to discuss it with you. Im about to hit the hay, but come tomorrow when Im fresh as a daisy, Id love to read what everyone else thinks about it.

Maybe we could have a talk about this over at Don't Expect, Suggest? It's got to be annoying for the mods to have this discussed all over the place, so maybe we could air all the pros, cons and opinions over there, once and for all? Maybe we could agree on some guidelines that we can all live with, including the moddies?

I wasn't done with that thread either. I shouldn't be surprised, but I am always astounded the way threads get closed around here. What's the point of even having a debate section if debates aren't really allowed unless they're sweet and pretty? Debates get heated, everyone gets pissed off, then they get over it. We don't need threads closed just because things get heated. We're not in high school.

I's surprised to check in this morning.. and see it was closed as well.. WHO? closed it?.. I think that's at least worthy of knowing.. because as we all know, the Moderators aren't this unified group.. that acts as one at all times..
Just wondering..
