    Re: My 2 cents…Cencorship…? or Free Thinking.?

[quote=BonnieBoo]Ive been observing the comments from all on this posting and the "My 2 Cents" posting…and decided to register to ask my question….would the comment above "text removed by CMartenson" be considered censorship on this site…?  Or are we only allowing comments that are only beneficial to our self serving purposes…?  Looks a little like something Hank Paulson would do to me…?

BonnieBoo,

If you will refer to CMs previous posting you will see that he clearly delineated his requests to jdb123 as regards the potential for and reasons why he might censor remarks.He provided every opportunity for him to participate in meaningful dialogue.

We need contributions which further the overall purposes of this site.  There are plenty of sites that allow for whining and sniveling and bitching and moaning among members. This is not one of them. I applaud and support Chris in his fair, clean and swift decision making.

Objectivily speaking and not kissing any butt this site is private property that belongs to Chris Martenson and he has set rules for posting here. These were supposed to be read and agreed to before registering. If you don’t like it then you can go somewhere else and be obnoxious.

GUIDELINES

For posts that stray outside of our admittedly subjective boundary lines, we reserve the right to modify or even remove any given post to conform to our definition of “acceptable posting.”

Please avoid any of the following:

  • Personal attacks.
  • Posts which are in violation of any law or openly advocate breaking the law.
  • Posts containing information known to be false.
  • Posts violating copyright laws.
  • Hateful, taunting, violent, or harassing posts.
  • Posts which are invasive of personal privacy.
  • Posts containing any language not suitable for all audiences or that would trigger a corporate firewall or cause responsible parents to block us out. This includes all swear words.

Fair—Here are Chris’ words above …and I quote…

"A full prosecutorial rehash will not be welcome.  

That goes for anybody else harboring a desire to wallow around in this topic.

I hope that’s clear.

Chris Martenson"

Yet above Futkou makes a FULL prosecutorial marginally accurate rehash and  I can only assume that Chris has now cut off all posting priviledges–after all–that would be "fair" as you say–would it be not.?

 

The question raised above has NOT been answered—Was it censorship onthis site or not..?  And I don’t ask that directly of Ckissass….but for every OBJECTIVE observer on this site….

What’s the message that is being sent..??—If someone does not agree then they ARE DISSENTERS! and MUST BE SILENCED!!!  or " we can just keep quiet and let a 4 weeks member do our big mouth bashing for us…..it keeps my hands clean of the dirty work anyway…."

 

Any REAL–OBJECTIVE constructive….non-butt kissing opinions or thoughts out there…?

When I registered for this site, I did it because I was impressed with Chris’ Crash Course and was also impressed with the level of discourse in the various forums.

It pains me to see some of the heretofore intelligent discussions deteriorate into mudslinging that have nothing to do with the original purpose of this site.

Accordingly, I respectfully ask ALL participants in ALL forums to return to dialogue that is relevant to Chris’ original intentions. If you cannot respect others, then I ask you to please go away.

I don’t always agree with everything Chris says, but I respect his right to moderate this site by his standards. If you’re only here to nitpick you are not wanted, in my humble opinion. If you are here to engage in reasoned dialogue about the serious financial issues facing this country, then I’m sure you will be welcomed.

Sam….

*sigh*

I know who this poster is and I’ve emailed him at his home address to get him to stop posting here.

In case BBBooBoo or anyone else of his/her opinion is out there, i’d just like to clarify two issues here. I’m not one to prolong uesless discussions or further irrelevant arguments, but I do feel that a well-reasoned response to any allegations/concerns is necessary, if only to prevent any doubts other observers might have.

I’m not here to argue how accurate my post was, although I still stand by those quotes 100%. Anyone can verify that the quotes weren’t tampered with.

If you look at my posting time, it was 3 minutes after Chris made his post. His post was not there when I began writing mine. I would not have made my first post had his been there previously. I think my second post makes that rather obvious.

Also, there are no 4 weeks members doing any bashing around here. Assuming that’s a reference to me (albeit a rather selfish assumption), I’ve been a registered user for nine months.

I agree with srlinder.
