You are correct about the censorship.. But I see you posting on the boards almost daily.. It's not like anyone is keeping you here.. Just saying.. If
you think it is so bad just log out and don't post anymore..
The analogy I see thrown about is that your in ATS house and you must follow their rules as a guest in their house.
My only problem with that is as Sinny said, the rampant censorship, even on topics that are CURRENT political issues, Obama using Harlod and Kummar as
an example could get you censored on here.
The way I look at it is that ATS does get revenue from us via ADs, so they ask us to see some pretty offensive adds from time to time.
Such as asking us to Sign a petition to attack IRAN.
Its a bit hypocritical to censor social issues, while asking us to ad support them with some ads that at times are worse than the social issue they
Its a bit mercenary of them that ideals go out the window when it comes to ad revenue.
I do not begrudge ATS ads, all websites have them.
My problem is with willingly making money off of us while stifling open discourse when it suits them, and than turning around and saying their slogan
is Deny Ignorance.
Free and open Discourse is the glue that holds a free society together, ATS has a right to censor what they wish, just as we have the right to not
come here as well.
Id simply wish they would change their slogan as its blatantly hypocritical at times (adds to attack iran, how is that denying ignorance?)
