A plea to Village Fool

Original post made by Anonymous, Adobe-Meadows, on Dec 5, 2013

Village Fool, Palo Alto Weekly is now accepting anonymous bloggers. Web Link
I have closely followed your crusade against the draconian censoring on this site. To the point of creating and monitoring your own blog. I feel this is an important area for discussion within the community about the power of censorship in shaping an biasing the discussion on Palo Alto issues.
At the very least, posting your correspondence with the Weekly would provide very interesting reading if they were to refuse you.

@Anonymous - Thank you for noticing.

This thread was restricted only to those who log in, that proved to stifle the discussion.
I read the fast restriction as a statement on the moderator's part.

Village idiot started a thread a while ago trying to deal with these issues (Web Link). At some point that thread was restricted as well,
While the discussion about the editing(?) is gone, the editing(?) itself is alive and kicking.

I have addressed these issues in my blog several times - here are two samples: Web Link, Web Link

I decided to log in and thank you. I'll try to present soon in my blog my belief that this issue is not disconnected from other occurrences which, for example, are rattling the schools. The same issues which especially impact those who are not considered to be "civil", in an area which prides itself on being diverse.

And here's again, to the rules of civility from another time - Web Link

I've read the TERMS OF USE and I believe that I have complied. Let's see.

@Moderator - may I ask why this thread was restricted only to those who log in?
