What I thought was a pretty good thread on why ATS shuts down any threads that discuss drugs was itself shut down, so I have to post on this loong
thread here. Hope someone sees this.
The terms and conditions state that any discussion of illegal activities is prohibited, drugs, hacking, sex with minors, etc. Fine, but seems very
If I say that I have used drugs, or know someone who has, or just talk about people I know who use non-legal drugs, would my post be deleted?
According to a strict reading of the rules it should be, since I am discussing an illegal activity.
The moderator who shut down the thread alluded that discussion of how to procure drugs is not allowed, and this does make some sense.
I think this rule should be changed to state that any threads that PROMOTE, ADVOCATE, or FACILITATE in any way illegal activities should be banned,
and then strictly enforce this. You are not strictly enforcing the current rule, and I honestly can't see how the 1st amendment does not protect
people from being able to talk about illegal activity, as long as they are not promoting it, giving instruction on how to, etc.
Please reply mods.
