Censorship on other forums
I, and others, have struggled against heavy censorship on other forums.
I have had posts deleted that do not fit with the moderators opinion, I have had posts edited to mean something else and then the thread closed so I can't comment or correct. One thread asking about this censorship was deleted with 14 minutes of appearing (see here
I feel the problem is not just the desire of the moderator to make the forum a big love-in or advert for the XF, but also the fact that the forum is sponsored by a dealer. This disallows free speech about both the car and the dealer, and results in many posts simply directing users towards that dealer.
We will never know how much has been deleted or changed, and we will never know about certain subjects at all.
This forum is here simply to allow free, uncensored opinion. There will be no "off-topic" - if the thread wanders then the posts will be split into a new thread. There will be no censorship of opinion, and no unsubtle ads for one dealer. In fact, no ads at all.
If you know someone you think may appreciate this, please let them know.
