GUEST,Big Ballad Singer BS: Mudcat Censorship-How Come (32) RE: Mudcat censorship 14 Jul 10


Personally, I feel as though anyone who wades into many of the non-music discussions should have their big boy/girl pants on and be prepared to encounter the spectrum of IQs, attitudes, political views etc that are bound to be represented anywhere where free and open discussion is allowed and encouraged.

I don't, however, think that what Joe or anyone else does is censorship per se. I think the moderators know many of the long-time members here pretty well (in terms of knowing what they are likely to say or how they might react) and I think the moderators do an admirable job of staving off many potential disasters in threads that are, admittedly, volatile to begin with.

In my experience reading here over many years, I have learned that if you don't want a light on, you don't throw the switch. Come into the discussions prepared to perhaps be the only poster of your persuasion, be a human about it, and you're not likely to be bludgeoned to death. Feed trolls or bring intellectual knives to mental gunfights, and God speed you to the bottom of the sea, 'cause that's where you and the discussion are headed for sure.

Regards,

BBS
