Today i have received more u2u's and profile comments than ever in the history of my posting.
This is due to the fact that a thread in which i maturely and calmly discussed several issues detailing aggresive corporate tyranny, censorship,
knee-jerk reactions and the draconian enforcement of those in power to silence the masses from discovering the truth - was closed.
Respecting ATS rules, i avoided ANY words and phrases which could be picked up by the nanny filters and suggested that all people engaging in this
conversation would respect the fact this could be discussed without pointing out the obvious.
Sadly one member broke the rules and destroyed my thread and promptly got himself banned, yet instead of just deleting his post, the moderator decided
he knew exactly what was best for us all and closed the thread.
How on earth can we discuss anything (even by skirting such subjects that may violate T&C) when we are at risk of being punished just because a
moderator decides that although the thread isn't offensive or breaking any rules, he will close it anyway?
How on earth can we 100% respect a website that apparantly prides itself on rooting out disinfo, tooth combing the facts and searching for the truth
when we get punished for nothing.
I have made a complaint and asked for a reason and even contacted one of the three amigo's (but i'm still awaiting a reply) but i feel we are
essentially being treated like children.
How can i then have respect for site that censors and bans posts that aren't even breaking any rules.
For instance if i was to make a childish comment in the 9/11 or a ufo thread, i very much doubt the whole thread would be deleted, yet just because my
thread challenged a broad range of subjects, one of which i can only assume made a moderator panic then it was closed down.
here are some comments from other members:
I was enjoying that thread. shame really.
I agree with you on the censorship thing.
Ironic isn't it, that one of the largest conspiracies (apart from religion) to affect humankind, and we can't discuss it here?
Rather embracing ignorance, than denying it.
Just a note to say that I'm sorry your thread about "it" was closed. For what its worth, I have lodged a complaint with the ATS peeps and
also shared some of my mind with xxx. Its actually quite absurd that the knee-jerk reaction is that you were speaking about a xxx rather than an
alternate resource for a huge range of products - not to mention jobs. Most don't know that the better strain of "it" for industrial, medicinal,
agricultural, etc. etc. use contains virtually no xxx... tsk tsk tsk. Would have starred and flagged your thread for sure ... PEACE
I sure did like that last thread of yours. I suspected it would not last long...Karma brought it down and was banned for his
I agree...ats censors a lot of different topics and discussions
When i questioned the moderator, i was given a rather rude reply which accused me of challenging the moderators intelligence (a lie!) and instead of
being given a reason, i was given a generic link to a warning about breaking ATS rules (the discussion of illegal drugs etc etc), which if the
moderator had bothered to read my post, would have found NOTHING to hint at drugs, as the topic was about hemp.
Hemp (from Old English hænep) is the name of the soft, durable fiber that is cultivated from plants of the Cannabis genus, cultivated only for
industrial (non-drug) use.
So if a moderator cannot be bothered to read the thread, which ironically frames the typical knee-jerk reaction to perfection, then what hope is their
for real truth seekers?
I very rarely go public with my grievances, but since i have had NO reply from the moderator in question or any other ATS staff, i don't think i've
been treated fairly here.
