Thread: LFPF censorship and moderation

    Re: LFPF censorship and moderation

    It's clear that the moderators are doubling down.

    Contrary to what some people think, this is not a free site. The are consequences of action, and inaction.

    Yes, moderation IS VERY HARD, but not as hard as taking a stand against bigotry.

    Please all bigots do come out of the woodwork.

    Again, we never had a problem with the photographs.

    That was precisely my point.

    Great, I'm glad we agree that the personal stories of an oppressed minority should not be suppressed because some take issue with their morals.

    Richard, please back away. You are reading this, and us, wrong.

    But this was never a "free" site. It has always been moderated according to guidelines that provide a lot of latitude.

    Again, do not equate our moderating actions with our views on your topic.

    It is not our job as moderators to litigate bigotry, or to allow flame wars simply because bigotry is being litigated.

    I encouraged Oren to keep this thread open, but now I'm seeing injury and so much reciprocal attack that people will end up hating each other, which is precisely what we are trying to avoid. So, thread closed.

    Thank you all for expressing your views; we will continue to discuss it amongst the moderators.

    Again, your intent isn't the issue.

    We did not agree to that. We agreed that our moderating action was not in any way related to the morals they believe.

    Right, I never said it was about your intent in taking the action, but about the actual effect of doing so.
