    You haven't read the thread. You acknowledge that you have no idea what happened. And yet you jump to crazy conclusions so you can kind of attack someone? Sarah didn't censor anyone, so cool your freaking jets.

    I think that we should delete LA blog negative review. I mean Findout is laughing that you can stop some fans, but you can't stop media. Well, actually you can, on the band's website, so go ahead and get rid of it somehow.

    It's out, done, we don't need another 1000 posts platinum thread, the band can already learn something from it, so it's time to at least lock it.

    If we agree to the positive aura thinking, let's do it 100%. Or does Dexter really love the review? I think it was tendentious, but still a campaign for the band.

    I think my idea of locking it after a certain amount of time would be a little step further, but I like Platinum threads. :d

    When has the lack of information been a problem between us? Our differences have never had nothing to do with lack of information.

    She closed Darrell's other thread, because of his opinions, where he said the band lacked creativity, I wasn't talking about the thread I haven't read yet. So, she closed it because of the information within the thread, if that's not censorship then I'm freaking crazy.

    My jets are cool, you all know what happens when it ignites, I rant and rant and rant and rant, this time I just shared a thought, based on the behaviour I see.

    Most of this discussion is unnecessary. Mostly because Sarah is seemingly going out of her way to explain the reasoning behind every decision she makes.

    Instead of just closing the threads that question the actions she's taken, she closes the ones that break the rules and leaves the discussion ones open until they reach dangerously close to personal abuse.

    Unbelievable. This has convinced me.

    It suddenly seems so clear! You're so right, this place is horrible. I'm moving to another part of the internet.

    And no, you're right - the problems between us have stemmed from your inability to leave me alone, so again, I'm not sure why I'm still surprised.
    Mmm... I believe there is freedom of speech EVERYWHERE, even if some internet site rules say there isn't, anybody can say whatever they want, you can't stop people from doing it, all you can do is delete what people says, or banning members from the BBS, so, yes, it is censorship, and it doesn't imply anything, censorship is censorship, here and in China.

    As I said before somewhere else, I was only going to talk to you when I feel you are not being a good moderator, which I didn't, I only threw one harmless comment there, which you responded in your condescending tone, as usual, which doesn't surprise me, but it entitles me to respond and clarify, as I always do, that is the thing about me that shouldn't surprise you.

    Just a heads up, freedom of speech technically only protects you from government persecution for saying things, so as long as they don't intervene, all's still fair.

    And the very fact that this thread hasn't been closed yet, to me, is proof that moderation is very lax. When 1565 comments in her "condescending tone", she's still doing it as a forum member unless she edits or deletes your posts. I get that arguments happen, but it seems a bit odd to claim "censorship!" when you're not being censored. You're just being argued with.

    First of all, censorship, as you call it, is everywhere. On Facebook, you can be banned or have stuff deleted if people find it inappropriate, too. Your boss can fire you for saying stuff he doesn't like. Any privately operated place can decide what they will and won't allow people to say.

    Second of all, THIS:

    Jesus christ, it annoys me so much when people do not understand what freedom of speech is. Sorry, freedom of speech doesn't mean you can go on the radio and be super fucking racist and still keep your job. It doesn't mean you can go on a band's website and say whatever the hell you want about the band.

    Listen up, those who hate 1565. She's not perfect, no. Nobody is. Does she make mistakes? Of course she does. But to tell the truth, the things I think she messes up are not with actual moderation, but with engaging in arguments with people who are stirring up shit, which isn't a great idea for a moderator to do. The point is, the thing I think she does "wrong" is actually a sign of her NOT being a strict mod. A strict mod would just delete that shit, but she actually debates first. I've had my comments deleted before. I've even gotten a warning once. And guess what? They were probably deserved. I don't remember what they were anymore, but having things deleted sure didn't have any effect on my life. It probably was best for the board at the time, and if it wasn't, so what?? It's. Just. A message. Board. Oh, and by the way, I've recently expressed plenty of disdain for CC on this bbs, but I've done it in a respectful, grown-up way, and I haven't been censored. 5 years ago, I probably would've written it in a way that would've had me censored like hell. It's called trying to be a bit more mature.

    Seriously, these threads come up every so often... I really would not want Sarah's job here. She does a really good job of cleaning up all the shit you guys don't even notice... and when she does one thing you don't like, you blow up. It must really suck to have to watch over a forum of angry little manchildren who think they can do whatever they want cause OMG TRUPUNX!!!1111one!!1 It's like babysitting adults whom you don't even know. Damn, Sarah, I hope the band rewards you big for this shit. I know they don't pay you... but there'd better be SOMETHING.

    Llama rant out.

    Hey, good for you. May I just say one thing? If we sign up for this forum, we have NO EXCUSE to not follow the rules. There are other forums that are out there for those who wish to break rules. Just not here.

    PS: why don't you just trash any/all posts that insult you or the band? Not just two, but 102, if that's what it takes to show the fools who's boss.
