if this in the wrong place please let me know or move it....

I am just blown away. I was responding to someone else s post regarding ALA's challenged book list released today when a screen pop'ed up and told me I was banned for an abusive post.

I guess all the forum's are infiltrated now. anyway. I guess that's alright, cause I like it here better any way. It seems to me that there were more posters there, but much more unreliable i guess.... they let all doomtards post anything they like and suposition, but actually talking about something real, and oops your banned.... well pooh on you I say

Uh-what website are you talking about? And can you explain what a "challenged book list" is? Your thread is pretty vague and confusing......

the other site is GODlikeproductions....

the challenged book list is the ALA (american librariy Ass.) Banned book list. Books the TPTB dont want you to read for what ever reason..... not really a banned book list since these books are still available today, but they are books that are frowned upon by some religious organizations, and priviate schools, military schools, most of the books on this list deal with revolution. 1984 is on there, brave new world, etc..

Not at every store. When I was a teenager I worked at BarnesandNoble, if a banned book is ordered, it is flagged. And if it is sent to the store, the manager will refuse to sell it.

wow over 1000 in public libraries?!? It's a public library as in all information should be there.Did you see Of Mice and Men was on the list I think it was 2001. How pathetic! I know that they can't ban the books here in the good ole U.S.A., at least not yet. It is crazy that so many people try to keep others from ideas other than there own. I think I'm going to have to go read all the books on this list. I love to read!

They keep silly topics like "I'm a crusader that time traveled from 1332, ask me a question" But if someone opens anything more investigative it gets closed and the user banned.

You can't question anything and there's no real debate other than yes men posting their dribble.
In any case it stays an interesting site cause their news posts seem to be fast and usually faster than ATS...

If we can change that GLP can kiss my IP goodbye

Where does it say every store?
It says if you can't get a book in store, then online you can.
There is no banned book that you could be arrested for reading

Easy. I'm just saying you generally can't get those books outside the internet. I'm not challenging you or anything.

" ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom records hundreds of attempts by individuals and groups to have books removed from libraries shelves and from classrooms."
www.ala.org...

Just to be clear this is only a list of books that individuals have tried to ban from libraries and classrooms...it's not a list of books that are actually banned by the ALA, or that are universally banned by anyone...As you yourself said you were posting to someones post already talking about this, which means that since it was already a subject of discussion you were not banned for talking about it....You were probably banned for the reason they claim....You made an abusive post.

The ALA or American Library Association is not the individuals that "challenge" or ban books. The ALA fights for the books to not be removed from the shelves. The banned book list is complied from the books that have been challenged by various groups and parents in schools across the country. All of the books can found in your library, sometimes they do keep certain books behind the counter and you must ask for them...this keeps the books from being stolen or from chidren without a parent present.

There are indeed some books that are not necessarily for children but they are available if a parent wants to check iot out for them. As for a book store not saleing a book that is on the list...that must have been that manager as I have never had a problem locating any of the books on the list and purchasing them through B & N or anyother book store, Yes you may have to special order it but no problems...they just may not stock it.

Here is the verbage from the ALA web site you provided the link too that shows they do not ban books or even challenge books....


"The ALA promotes the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one's opinions even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those viewpoints to all who wish to read them."

A lot of religious nuts say that Harry Potter is the work of the devil because they use magic. I've even seen news reports of them protesting at movie and book releases.

Yeah, and 'everybody' loves Harry Potter, so if some religious nut gonna say he propagates evil forces yappityappa, he will bring some attention to himself. Especially in US, where people get media coverage for seeing face of Virgin Mary on a buttered toast or Jesus on slip from grocery store. And it's being treated seriously, even NOBODY knows how they look like.

I studied this book and watched the film in secondary school, how / why the smeg is it on this list? Is there any place that notes the reasons these books are challenged?


Edit: Never mind, found it:

Reasons

To me, it looks like a lot of whining; nothing in the book was out of context for its setting.

A LOT of good books on that list. A little bit of modification and it should be a Required reading list.
