I generally think the mods do an excellent job here and it is a site that stands as an example to the future. I enjoy
forum posting and reading here as much as other people enjoy watching TV in their free time. I have learned a lot from threads and feedback to my
posts. I also understand why the mods have been erring on the side of caution at times, particularly with the subject of drugs.
One last (minor) point makes me question the necessity of some minor censorship effect though: automatic deletion relating to the very name of a much
smaller competitor conspiracy forum (I think due to its entirely different style and audience and moderation policies, angellike productions does not
pose a real threat - substitute the creator of the universe wherever you wish), as well as the (non-forum) site of a certain radical Polish
philosopher (who used to have some bitter debate with ATS, I forgot about what exactly though, and I guess so did most people who know them too...) It
would be enough in my opinion - perhaps after all these years - to add an automatic disclaimer to such posts (something like, "this post refers to an
untrustworthy site," or, "to a site unfairly critical of ATS").
But there might also be technical reasons I do not understand.
(Anyway, I wonder how the moderators can read all our stuff all the time...)
