If you don't like it, just go away and stop whining.
If you don't go away then there is somthing here for you that costs you nothing. Live with it or don't.

cannabis is a conspiricy in my eyes not only here but in the world. This site is about whistleblowing and debating taboo subjects, yet we cant debate or even have an adult conservation about cannabis without topics/posts being deleted.

The owners of this site have sold out. They edit anything that will offend the ad income. They only want to make money, they do not care about the truth or sharing thoughts and ideas freely.
This site has became a huge pile of rubbish, heavily moderated by way too many people that think they are right.
So point is the owners sold out, they want money not the truth on anything. And they prove this by all the free labor and the wiping of most posts.

As far as we can tell, there are three ways to provide a site of this magnitude, to this many people, while ensuring it runs smoothly, and loads up as quickly as it does.
1. charge a monthly fee
2. pay for it all out of the owner's pockets
3. allow advertisers to pay for ad space.
