Some sites censor their content by making very political associations that are not valid. The most innocent post can appear to be racist or prone to incite violence if you assign a false and inflammatory motive to another person’s words and flame the author of the post hard enough.
Example post from a political discussion site (not Purism discussion board): “We need a large wall built on our Southern border”.
Example Response: “You’re a racist for trying to keep brown skinned people out of the US”.
Example Moderator’s comment after deleting the original post: “This forum does not allow the promotion of racism”.
Meanwhile, any discussion about financial effects of illegal immigration and increased crime rates of illegal immigration are banned by default, from the discussion. The core issues are banned from the discussion in support of a partison position based on a lie. Everyone feels absolutely justified for treating the so-called racist badly. No real resolution of real issues can ever be achieved. Everyone from one side of the aisle feels good while everyone else feels angry for their being mis-treated.
The moderator here on this board was correct to put a stop to a few threads that were frozen here. One of my posts might have been the final straw in one case because it was off-topic for the purpose of this forum. I’ll do better in the future. That kind of moderation (and compliance with the law) is the only kind of moderation that should be allowed on any forum that allows anyone (strangers) to sign-up and post anything there.
