All freedom is controlled by someone, even on a site like this.
Imo, no topic should be out of bounds, as through debate, points of view can be made openly with evidence given for people to digest, mull over and
then provide counter evidence to support their own opinion. People can draw their own conclusion to what they feel. We don’t have thought police yet
and allowing people the opportunity of debate things happening in our World should be encouraged.
A thread about circumcision was closed pending moderation. Why? All men have a penis, we all have words to describe them, and points raised in that
thread were a fact worthy of discussion, yet was closed probably because it was about genitals and referenced many terms of sexual language.
I'm not being funny but how many threads are there on here about guns, murder, death destruction etc?
We are all or mostly adults. Maybe an age regulation option should be added to ATS threads or some sort of icon that can be added to warn of adult
However, this isn't my site to determine the rules which we all agreed to.
I also agree that posts should be removed that insult fellow members.
Threads should be removed where an opinion is put across that has no link to any evidence.
