How do we know he is a hoaxer? If there was proof outside the Japanese translator I didn't see it.
Because they aren't the personal story of an ATS Member, besides that you can still have a lively discussion about them in the HOAX Forum, they just won't be getting any search engine boost from ATS.
Censorship -- the control of the information and ideas circulated within a society -- has been a hallmark of dictatorships throughout history. In the 20th Century, censorship was achieved through the examination of books, plays, films, television and radio programs, news reports, and other forms of communication for the purpose of altering or suppressing ideas found to be objectionable or offensive. The rationales for censorship have varied, with some censors targeting material deemed to be indecent or obscene; heretical or blasphemous; or seditious or treasonous. Thus, ideas have been suppressed under the guise of protecting three basic social institutions: the family, the church, and the state.
