@ Angry, Well if someone bans you from an internet site, it is not censorship. It just means that whoever are running the site don't find the poster's contribution worthwhile for whatever reasons. Now censorship happens when the state decides that a particular viewpoints or person(s) (opinions) cannot be expressed. Or when a multi-media comglomorate decides to actively use its influence to silenced stories. So please don't go around crying censorship when a site bans you, as you are just perpetuating this confusion. The internet means it is pretty hard to surpress opinions, as there are thousands of forums to post on. Indeed you, yourself run a site where you express your views, so calling being banned, moderated or having a code of conduct for posting censorship is ridiculous.
Anyways, welcome the broads and happy posting. grin

Thank you for the lesson Mr.Cortez, happy to hear what your definition of censorship is. Although I beg to differ. Censorship is acted out by a Censor. A Censor is defined in a dictionary as:

Quote:
cen·sor
   /ˈsɛnsər/
–noun
1.
an official who examines books, plays, news reports, motion pictures, radio and television programs, letters, cablegrams,etc., for the purpose of suppressing parts deemed objectionable on moral, political, military, or other grounds.
2.
any person who supervises the manners or morality of others.

So you see, no matter how you look at it, it is censorship. That doesn't mean I don't agree with it. If I was posting porn on a Disney forum I'd certainly expect to be censored. My only question was, by posting a link to my blog which is written by an anarchist that consists of what I like to think of as relevant material, on a site which is made up of largely anarchist discussion... was my morality in that action worthy of censorship?

Regardless, Khawaga explained his reasoning, there has been a lot of spam going on here so I can see how it can be difficult to weed out the good from the bad. I choose not to make his life harder as I can see his point of view, so after realizing I had a choice that worked well for the both of us, I put the link in my profile.... if that is not proof that anarchism can work, I don't know what is wink

P.S. I was very happy when posting smile lol

err.... neither of those two definitions really support your view? I see your argument, but to use censorship in such a loose fashion is to pretty much render the word useless. Glad to see you realise that making admins and mods lives harder is counter productive. I will check out your site.

The first definition clearly concerns a government agent, while the second is so vague to be rendered meaningless (and probably concerns "censor" as an epitaph rather than an actual meaningful definition).

This person has bumped a couple of really old threads, and has a link to some "dissertation site" in this post:

Not sure if it's actual spamming though, as (s)he has made one on-topic post (in the wikileaks thread)
Some of the profile details suggest it might be Marsella having a bit of a laugh.

I've deleted the link and left the rest. I googled to check where the profile info etc came from. It might be a spammer so sworth keeping an eye on.

re-added the link (http://libcom.org/forums/west-midlands-anarchists/crane-amp-cast-dismissals-09022006#comment-370920). I think that warrants a ban as spammer.

I know its difficult for a socially retarded fuck-up like you to even conceptualize that there are people outside of the Internet, but not everyone who is female and posts on this site is me. Seriously, that person is obviously not a bot. Perhaps they should have been given a warning that posting spammy links at the ends of their posts isn't allowed, rather than just banning them without any discussion? But way to go libcom in addressing the sausage-fest that this site is by banning what new female posters sign up! roll eyes

Don't try and pretend that you were banned for sexism.
That person does not seem like a bot but they are spamming links to a thesis site and when the link was removed from the post and replaced with SPAM they replaced it. They are spamming even if their posts seems legit. I checked that person's profile to ensure it wasn't copied and pasted because that has happened before. Although the profile was not a bot as far as I know, it is clearly a spammer and was banned.
