Subject: RE: BS: Censorship on Mudcat
El Greco - Xander - George or whatever other handle you may choose to post under and for whatever reason you choose to do it.

Which of these two rather conflicting views is it to be?

Absolute freedom is open to absolute abuse and would destroy this forum. Normal rules of civility should apply, and where they do not, the clones should be allowed to trim offending or time-wasting (or disk space-wasting) texts.

I am in favour of minimal censorship, next to zero: The only case I would say it is needed is when libellour remarks have been made, and that is only to protect Max as the owner of the site.

Or is really wise for us - not to take any notice of any views expressed by any of your many guises?
