Since when is managing the content of a privately-owned discussion venue suppressing free speech?
Originally posted by sublime4372 well, I cant beleive that ATS is a non supporter of free speech.
We're interested in quality and credibility, which both aid in attracting new members, and maintaining the motto.

Did you not see the call for new DISC members by Kano? (here) There have been several occasions where new forums were added, forum focus changed (recently the F9/11 forum), and forum rules have been modified (MudPit) as part of an effort to ensure we all have a focus on quality content. The prediction forum (as some have noted) was always intended as a place to discuss pre-existing predictions and prophecy, not a place to make guesses. We're simply refining this forum to be better in-line with the ATS mission.
Originally posted by Hawk dunno... I guess we (the members) have really limited say here regarding forum policy (heh 'foreign policy'). Kinda reflects the actual government, no?
Yes. If you feel the need to share a personal prediction, post it in the Dreams & Personal Predictions forum on BTS. If needed, and the prediction is appropriate, it can always be moved to this forum on ATS.
Originally posted by sosuemetoo He seemed to ask that all personal predictions be posted only with mod approval. I assume that will not be the case on BTS.
Originally posted by Ycon I think a wiser choice would be to have a sub forum for member predictions

Its about money folks...always has been...thats why there's a post and edit from 'Springer' the "financial consultant" in this thread. The moves ATS has made in the last year are about money. They figured that they had an untouched cashcow here and it was time to put it to use.
