Subject: RE: BS: Censorship on Mudcat
Shambles, to determing the difference between "I" and "we" requires a modicum of intelligence. "I" is singular and refers to the speaker. "We" is plural, and refers to the speaker and various others, explained in the context when necessary.

This is not an issue here, and never has been. Please don't try to make it into one.

As for this convoluted sentence:The answer to this is pretty easy. You either don't impose any at all. Or if 'you' or 'we' do feel that ANY editing action is required - (preferably consulting the originator first) - this is always made clear by an editorial comment - that makes it clear that editing action has been imposed and the details of who judged this was required and the reasons why?
- I think I've answered it adequately, countless times before. What you propose is a very complicated process for approval of what is essentially a non-issue for most of us. Editorial actions ARE controlled - by Max, Jeff, and Joe. If you question an editorial judgment, consult with me. I am the one responsible for explaining that judgment. If we make an objectionable message disappear, we are not going to discuss that deletion publicly, but we are generally willing to answer private questions.
