Should the three musketeers (the forum moderators) delete "objectionable" posts? (Note: I'm normally anti censorship, but I think some of the posts are too offensive to certain people, especially Tamara, who does not deserve this kind of disrespect.

Cast your vote! (You don't even need to be a registered voter!)

I won't vote. That's for you guys to decide. I will express a couple of thoughts.

One is that this guy won't get bored and go away any time soon because he gets off on his fantasies too much to get bored with them. The more you respond, the more exciting this place is.

The other is that, if you start deleting him, don't brag it up. Do it offhand, just like you'd brush away some dirt from a place where you want to sit down. Don't turn it into a war. Don't get torqued out of shape. Just do it without a second thought.

good advice

-- joj (jump@off.c), December 12, 2001.

I don't like the gross or vulgar offensive hateful stuff. It's like a 12 year old is acting out or something. At least put up signals on the titles so I don't waste my time clicking on the stupid ones.

More good advice. But more work for moderators

-- joj (jump@off.c), December 12, 2001.

Expressing unpopular views is one thing, but I'd really like to see posts like "You are all idiots!", "KILL ALL SAND N-----S!" and "Go #&*# yourself!" gone. They are not productive in any way and give the anarchist movement a bad name. (Like it doesn't already. When most people think of anarchy, they think of precisely the type of people that like to make the BS posts I mentioned above).

Ummm...Is that 8pm central, or...because it's 9:30 here, I just got back from work.

I think that they should be allowed to post as long as they actually HAVE opinions. IE: In "Anarchy forum", there is a post containing only random letters and has no point whatsoever. Those are the ones that should be deleted. As for the Haters, well, (I hate to be the one to say it) but they are entitled to their opinions, no matter how grotesque, violent, or sick as they might be. If they explain WHY they submit such...controversial responses, then allow them to share their opinion. You are allowed to share YOUR opinion, too...If you are offended by them, then CHEW THEM OUT!!!!

To recap...

1. Delete only the STUPID posts,

2. Allow everyone to share their opinion, providing they grant a viable explanation, and 3. If you don't like what they post, feel free to CHEW THEM OUT!!!!

Also, if their post is ONLY to embarrass another poster and/or present awkward situations, and are unable to voice any opinion whatsoever consistent with the topic, delete those.

Well, as one of the "Big Three" moderators, and the founder, I think everyone is entitled to an opinion, no matter how idiotic or devoid of human intellect. however, randomly or repeativally(sp) insulting other posters, especially the way Tamera has been insulted at times is totally unacceptable. I'm sorry, but stuff like that is not having "an opinion" or "a say", its just immature, vulgar, and disgusting.

But, restricting them I think would make us sound like elitists, and might hinder more than help. But, their need to be some limits. Leaving postings up like "i want to poo in your twat, etc" polute the forum. Isn't that why we started the new forum because the old one wa so overrun by perverts and child molesters(exaggeration). Let's not let them think that they have a safe place to carry on their freakish behavior (of course, one might ask themselves "is it better that they have their little fantasy here instead of going out and raping a 10- year old?)

Personally, I would like to see them gone.

What are the opinions of the other two moderators?

-- ass raper (dees999991@yahoo.com), December 13, 2001.

See! I put up with that shit! And you complain that I dont delete it? Why? I wont delete unless it hinders access. Let the others if they wish. I have my ideals and values. Cencership isnt one of them. Freedom is. Let the others do it. I wont.

-- Tator (you@cant.resist), December 13, 2001.

See? It's posts like "ass raper"'s here I have a problem with. They don't even express a viewpoint. Even Wendell's grotesque rantings are preferable to this. There is a world of difference between expressing unpopular opinions and blatant trolling.

-- Nexar (Icant@tellyou.com), December 13, 2001.

I rant. Do you want to delete me, also?

-- Tator (you@cant.resist), December 13, 2001.

Tator you are good. Ass raper is worthless.

-- (pirate@nyc.com), December 13, 2001.

Tator, at least you are capable of conductings an intelligent conversation, unlike some that come by here that think with their dicks instead of their brains.

censorship is good, but bad
