    My posts seem to have been tampered with of late. If those with the power to do so find my opinons offensive, simply post counterpoints. Or have the balls to ban me; but covert censorship is anti-everthing our nation was founded upon and everything the RW says they oppose.
    I plan to watch much more carefully, and copy and past to word pad my remarks to determine if my hunch is correct, and have evidence if it is true. Mea culpa if I'm mistaken, fuck you if I'm not.

    One has no protections on an internet board. You have no rights except those the board owner allows you to have. I have complained before about obvious abuses on this board by Admin and Moderator alike. And have roundly been told to damn bad.

    It does no good to appeal to your fellow board members as they do not care unless it happens to be them being screwed with.

    Having said that, I have NEVER seen any moderator or Admin change what a poster said. They will remove posts and ban for some pretty dumb stuff but I have never seen them alter content.

    The powers that be at USMB can make this board into anything they wish. They own it, we do not, nuff said.

    Capitalism Magazine - Comedy Central&#039;s Editing of the South Park Mohammed Episode is NOT Censorship
    The above is all about the Comedy Central brew-ha-ha but it fits.


    All that said, if "the powers that be" are farking with post for reasons other than what is stated in the rules, well, that's flat out uncool yo. :eusa_think:

    There have been several posts that I have made that I have dearly wanted to have altered or abolished by some forgiving mod.

    Be grateful that someone is watching your back.

    You could always save each post as a Jpeg, put it on PhotoBucket and post the image.


    But then, they could still fuck with it. Come to think of it....you're fucked!

    If the charge is true, it's a cowardly thing to do. Leave them posts alone, it would get pretty boring reading one pov around here.

    *yawn*

    Try again, whiner. No one on this staff touches your posts and no one else can. Why should I want to try and alter you making yourself looking a Class A, partisan fool on your own?

    What a rube.:rolleyes:

    As we see, when he has exhausted real life issues about which to complain, he needs to invent some. Now his own mind is fucking with him. :lol:
