I'll go you one better. I was admonished the other day for telling a poster who said he found nothing wrong with the writings of noted white supremacists that this showed his poor judgement.

 I wouldn't have to think very long to come up with the party's whom you refer to.

All joking aside, I am amused.  Especially since I was warned once, didn't see the warning, referred back to my original joke and was summarily banned for ignoring the first warning.  Ah well, I'm pretty sure I was spending too much time there anyway.
Something similar happened to me there...

Someone posted a reference to an article. I pointed out the fact that the source of the article was poor (something that even one of the co-moderators had done on occasion). My posting was deleted, but I didn't get the warning. I assumed I made a mistake in posting so I re-posted my comment, and got suspended.

Have to say, at least one of the moderators there has become a complete and total idiot.

Right now there are basically three lunatics there posting most of the topics, one allegedly from Turkey, one from the far fringes of the left whose only interest, it seems, is a frenzied condemnation of anything related to the US or the West, and the third a dullard of the far right who calls himself a white rights activist.
You'll have to be more specific about that... there are 2 there that I would classify as "dullards of the far right"... one that openly admits to getting his information from neo-nazi literature, the other that praises that very same individual.

You're forgetting another lunatic... the one who likes to cut and past from christian web sites (with fancy colored fonts) yet seems unwilling/unable to actually create her own content.

One weird bit of censorship...

The word 'cracked'.  (Its a name used by a humor website.) Not sure why that one would be banned by the software. Perhaps they are concerned about how it may refer to hacking/computer security, but the word has so many connotations.

I had something similar as well. I logged in and went into a thread and responded to the most previous post that had been made by the "Head Troll" ( I think might know who I mean...all things Canadian ) before I realized that he/she had completely derailed the thread. My bad I guess for not reading up the page before responding. Guess who got suspended? Not the troll who had done the initial derailment. And that member seems to get away with same constantly.

Not only were the moderators inconsistent, I'd also question why they are so concerned with keeping threads "on topic".

Yes, sometimes a troll can derail an interesting and legitimate thread, but sometimes discussions evolve over time, and the resulting topics can be just as interesting (if not more so) than the original discussions.

How does that work??

I bought a certain number of ad free credits (25K) and then bought 10K worth of views in terms of web traffic.  It used up the ad free credits.  I'll buy more when I'm back from Hong Kong next week.

I took the electric fence down again.  It might take a few minutes.

I hope you didn't spend hard-earned money just so that we can swear.  Because we can certainly find ways around the autocensor if it's any burden on you. 

I fizzityuckin' guarantee it.
