be_it Isnt this the same as that guy who posted on here trying to do research for a vegetarianism debate? He signed up despite it being clearly stated that this is a forum for veggies or people seriously considering being veggie ONLY. Just saying...

I was doing my own thing quietly and YOU are the one who created this post trying to make a big deal out of it. Keep flaming the fire. That must be what you want.

Gita Some forums don't like overly political (or preachy) posts. They find them inflammatory. I guess they all have rules.

I'm not a board moderator, so I have to stick with virtual *****-slaps for people who think the first amendment applies to private organizations. Wish this forum had a fish-thwacking icon.





Something like this?





Not the best. Rushed through it.

seanmillion Christians typically are willingly ignorant ... even if you don't come on so strongly, merely posing questions they cant answer will get you kicked out :P

Forums are not a free country. They are owned by an individual who pays for their upkeep. If you sign up for one, you agree to the rules of their "club" so to speak -- if you disobey those rules, you can expect that you will not be allowed to participate anymore.

If I go into a church and start shouting about how Christianity is a fiction, I'd expect to get thrown out. I wouldn't consider my freedom of speech to have been restricted. Freedom of speech does not mean freedom to say what you want, how you want, whenever you want.



Similarly with internet forums... some of your opinions may be considered inappropriate for a particular forum (advocating animal abuse on VB, for example). You're still perfectly free to go voice your opinion on another forum, or even start up a forum of your own. Your freedom of speech has not been restricted.

Exactly! You don't agree with the contract, you don't sign up. Simple.

'Freedom of speech' does not pertain to online communities where people have agreed to follow a certain set of rules and restrictions in order to participate.

I've talked to homesteaders who were creating what could be percieved of as minature factory farms as part of revenue generation for their livelihood.

jeneticallymodified if you'd said the opposite here, you'd have got banned for it too.

OilPatch197 I got banned at a popular homesteading forum for saying the following, in summary:



Quote:
- The industrialization of our livestock industries is wrong, unhealthy, cruel and inhumane.



- Large corporations are primarly responsible for the mistreatment and abuse.



- We are charged by the Bible to care for our animals in practical ways.



- Based on these views, I don't greive when I hear of another slaughter house closing down, infact I rejoice.

It saddens me that people want to be willingly ignorant, and simply don't care. They are in it for themselves, for that paycheck no matter what unethical thing they must do.
