WHO FAVORS MEN CENSORSHIP?
« on: May 27, 2008, 04:30:20 PM »

My opinion is there is too much censorship everywhere we turn. If ALL the participants are actively involved, then that makes someone fair game and they have opened themselves up to scrutiny by their own posting. Turn about is fair play. Those that come on in an arrogant manner to blast others need no protection.

However, I believe that if someone was NOT a participant and they were being talked about, then maybe they need protection. If they have more than one account, it is an unfair advantage to have numerous accounts. The Terms of Service currently do not prohibit individuals from creating more than one account on MT. It should NOT be allowed. That in itself would diminish the attacks since I believe the ones doing the attacks have different accounts from which to do their attacks.

Lastly, if someone doesn't like the content, they should go to a thread that conforms to their personal standards.

I say only in rare instances.

MEN has a vested interest in this, obviously. They must protect that interest. Anything libelous must be carefully watched.

It is a commercial venture, owned and operated by the MEN.

They 'publish' the content if you will.

They can print, or withhold printing, what they choose.

My views on censorship.

I’m not in favor of censorship but if key words need to be modified for a good reason then it’s understandable.

What I’ve witnessed is lazy editing………removing entire topics instead of surgically removing words and admonishing the poster so everyone could learn from the mistakes.

A non-response doesn't mean you've won, it merely means the obnoxious, illiterate, right-wing morons have taken too much of my time already.

Censorship only if really necessary, and I must be living in the backwoods, because I seem to be missing all the censorship and deleting posts,etc. Anyway, yes if it needs to be done to maintain a community type of service. :)

I am not in favor of it either.  However, I do find that there have been instances where a moderater needs to step in and say ok, enough.

I understand...it's supposed to be for entertainment.

...and 'entertainment' is a relative term.

I believe the paper is employee owned but I’m a subscriber and I only want the best for our community news organization……it’s all we have.
