Clearly those criticisms were written by someone banned here for spamming GPL garbage. The mods and staff do a fantastic, thankless, job sifting out
the crap so we can all play in the sandbox.
I honestly wouldn't come back if not for them. If not for them weeding out the useless garbage, we'd be no better than any other randomly organized
rant fest... i mean forum.
And if we want to go specifically into Sandy Hook.. Yes, if it means I don't have to be embarrassed to frequent this site, please continue to
"censor" that story.
ATS is the high water mark for what a conspiracy related community should be. In keeping with that, some decisions have to be made, and clearly we
don't all agree on the specifics....
but when it comes to mods, they clearly have the best interest of the community AS A WHOLE at heart. If a few people have to deal with some butt hurt
in the process, well...
Suck it up princess... or go complain on Wikipedia. Which, is ironic, considering we aren't supposed to trust Wikipedia as a reliable source of
information when posting source articles, yet we consider it reliable enough to get miffed over some complaints.
It should be mentioned that stuff is rarely actually "censored" here. Duplicate articles are the reason for 90% of thread closures, T&C violations
for a good 9%. Then there's that 1% margin of error to let the mods feel out what they think is best.
There is a concerted effort to infiltrate and marginalize sites, just like this. Heck, there are threads on this very subject here. Certain
ridiculous things MUST be weeded out, or sent to the grey area, if not, we risk letting them come in and taint the punch.
Alex Jones anyone? David Icke anyone? 911 no planers and pod people... anyone?
This is a community driven site, that's for sure, but it aint free to run, and a site like this has to cover their staffs collective butts, you don't
have freedom of speech here, you have no rights, regardless of how loudly you demand them. If we can just say whatever we want, willy nilly, we put
the entire site at risk, as someone has to be held responsible for it, and I'm not paying the hosting costs.... Are you?
