No to Censorship!

The basis of most "folk" music, whether it be from America, Great Britian, Ireland, China, etc ad nauseum is often based in contraversy. People wrote songs about their lives and times and events which they percieved.

The incontravertable fact of the matter is that this being a "free" forum to dicuss music or events or just stream of though gives a marketplace of ideas, a free exchange of thoughts and opinions oan feelings which others can react to or think on, much as music is suppposed to encourge free expression of ideals. I post occasionally, but often just log on and check out what is being said.

With the world being diverse as it is, everyone must understand that people have differing thoughts on topics, and express them in various ways.

While as a matter of general respect, personal attacks and blantant, hurtful expressions of topics such as racism, religious intolerence, etc should be avioded and not tolerated by all members of the forum, one should also keep a general open mind to others ideas and thoughts.

Always remember, well expressed thoughts are always more effectve at bring a point than using a "sword" slash approach.

Now, off my high horse and no to cersorship!
