Subject: BS: Censorship and Attitude Rolled into TWO
From: The Shambles
Date: 04 May 06 - 02:01 PM

As I am the originator of this thread – the excuse can't be used that this one is subject to any imposed editing action at the request of the originator. The originators wish for this thread is that the posters are left to decide if this thread (and every future thread) is to be contributed to or left to fall off the bottom and die a natural death.

Censorship and attitude rolled into one

The above thread was closed. Among other things (which it would appear that our protectors would rather we did not see) were the following links.
Proposal for members only posting of BS
Music posts by Guests to be reviewed
I may disagree with what you say-
Your favourite Shamblism
Why all the closed threads?
Non posting of judgements week
Do we need to curb the troublemakers
Proposal for members only posting of BS

Perhaps the discussion on the subject in that thread's title that was interrupted can be resumed in this new thread? On the lines of;

Whether the attitude that seems to be currently encouraged on our forum of judging the worth of our fellow posters and trying to find way to prevent them from posting where and what they choose - is desirable, has anything to do with Max's intentions for our forum, why this has happened and how/if this attitude can be changed?

You know, Shambles, we were all talking about this very subject in Is Closing Threads Censorship?. In fact, I think I made some very good points in that thread. Why is it that you feel a compulsion to start yet another thread? Is it because you can't stand up to logic, that you have to move away from those who try to face up to you with reason and factual information?
Isn't that just plain cowardice?

You have been a problem here for a long time, Shambles. You try to overwhelm Mudcat with countless repetitions of your groundless accusations. Pehaps we should make a new rule, just for you: perhaps we should say that we will allow only one open thread with more than ten Shambles posts at a time. I suppose you'd come up with a way around that - you'd start a new thread every time you hit nine posts in an old one.

You seem to be trying to make Mudcat into a forum that centers around Shambles, and I don't think it's fair to the rest of us to allow that to continue. Feel free to say what you have to say - but quit all this repetition and this constant opening of new threads. In general, then, please be advised that we will allow only one "Shambles thread" to be open at a time, and I will take editorial action to enforce that. I will handle the enforcement of this particular policy - not the volunteers.
