    Is this an example of censorship?

    Is this an example of censorship?

    Obviously, I will never post anything at the Political Forum again. But I want to hear you guys' opinions. Is this an example of censorship?

    Does Debate Politics have a similar policy regarding posts that the moderators disagree with on ideological grounds?
    Is the following quote reckless in the extreme? Then read my 2008 paper about monetary theory:

    I'm confused...

    What in that link is being censored?

    And/or what are you claiming is being censored?

    Well hopefully THIS post gets moved to the Binky forum, even though you're bitching about the moderators on a different forum.

    Could you please add a 'what the hell are you talking about' option to the poll? Thanks.

    Is it censorship.. why? Because they moved it to the Humor and Satire forum?

    I don't understand. I would say if you've posted it more than once and they keep moving it, it's time for you to take a clue and move on.

    You may call it censorship, but remember... that board is privately owned and they can do with it what they feel is right. You may not agree, but that's tough ****. If you want true freedom of speech, open your own board/forum and post to your hearts content.

    When you are in someone else's 'house', you are subject to their rules as far as so-called censorship is concerned.

    There is no such thing as censorship on a privately owned forum. So no, it's not censorship.

    The owners and operators of a forum can do whatever the hell they want with your posts. It's the same as walking into a Wal-Mart or stepping into someone's home. Your right to speak doesn't override their property rights.

    No. Just as this forum cannot censor, because it is a private forum. They can do what they want. If you did not like it you could find another that is more to your liking. As is this case.

    I've got lots of ties to autism and know more than the average bear about ASD, but the "post-autistic" thing just baffles me. It's either so deep I'm a drowning intellectual pigmy--or it's just silly and it belongs in a humor forum.

    ...

    The definition of censorship does not change just because of where one posts/talks (public, or private place)... it is whether or not the censorship is acceptable or not that changes. I think that is a big difference (though important).
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
