Mods, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not lock this topic. I really want to hear what members think about this.
I recently put it a suggestion to be able to view censored topics. A lot of other web sites have this option. It was locked right away.
I've also seen other suggestions/questions posted by people that are shut down almost automatically with NO REASON GIVEN except for no, or it won't
happen. Some of them are understandable, some of them are not.
Youtube for example, allows you to selectively view comments marked as spam. I'd like to see why this couldn't happen on ATS. Why can't we
selectively view posts/threads marked as "against ATS rules" ? Posts/threads that have been edited/censored by ATS mods?
Are we denying ignorance this way, or just being censored? It seems to go against the motto of the site that I've come to love.
I AM CONFUSED!!!!
The answers to the thread were, and I quote, "There is a reason" and "No!"
Will the mods PLEASE allow this to be discussed? I don't understand how censoring and locking threads relates to the site motto of "Denying
Why can't we hear what other members think about this?
If a mod wants to delete or edit this post, can you PLEASE SEND ME A PM with an explanation of what you mean?
I've put so much into this site, and it is basically shattering my worldview when something like what I just asked gets deleted. I feel like my
entire worldview has been crushed because I owe so much to ATS for opening my mind.
