Post a New Topic
Political correctness and censorship by editor
Original post made
on May 14, 2010
Let's see how long this post will last. I want to raise public's attention to unwarranted and unjustified censorship of politically charged topics that happens on this forum. An example would be "Arizona boycott" topic which paloaltoonline editor turned into "registered members only" thread, which was a way to shut it down. The original post just asked a question of what is wrong with Arizona law, but the editor immediately reacted with closing the discussion to reg members only. I am afraid this post will be removed as well as it raises the issue of censorship and political correctness. I am all for removing posts that are offensive, but what is wrong with civilized discussion of a political topic? People still have the right for free speech, or do they not?
