Yes, we all have the right to choose which political ideology we care to indulge our general political mindset and points of views upon, and make it known to everyone that this is what we stand for through sharing POVs.

One of the main reasons I enjoy coming on ATS is because I know that not a lot of people will agree with my "liberal" views. I know that 90% of the people on the ATS political forums are conservative/republican. Honestly it would be boring to be on a website where the majority of people agreed with me.
Do you, ATS, really want to lose the voices of members who have relevant, interesting, fresh and "awesome" material to contribute to the forum forever. Because at the rate I am seeing now it's already happening and some great voices are actively emerging into the darkness and turning silent.
No matter what message you are about to deliver somewhere, whether it is holding out a hand of friendship, or making clear that you disapprove of something, is the fact that the person sitting across the table is a human being, so the goal is to always establish common ground.

The execution of staff duties has its occasional flaw. This is largely due to what they may percieve as a violation of T&C inaccurately, which is bound to happen among such a diverse people on a dynamic forum.
However, as far as political censoring? No, not the mods. Now the membership is really good at shouting down an ideology. Since we have a Dem in the White House, it is all about conservative slant. When Bush was in the white house, the membership had a much more liberal slant.
But ATS seems to also be a stronghouse for libertarian ideals. I appreciate this, and hope that it spreads.
