Subject: RE: BS: Is closing threads censorship?
I think the relevant dates of the two quotes made by Max and Don T should be quoted. I believe that about 6 years elapsed between the two, and a more up to date message from Max might be in order, to see if he still feels the same in view of the amount of abuse and back biting there has been since he originally made it.
You keep saying, obviously Max doesn't agree with Joe Offers suggestion that members only post in the BS section. How do you know this, have you been told it by Max?
As for "how do we know their editing decisions are not personally motivated?" we don't, we have to trust that they are fair in their actions. After all as I said previously, this is not, and never will be a democracy. If it were then we would be able to vote off Clones or Posters we don't like by collecting enough signatures.
Now that WOULD be an interesting exercise!!
