Hey FReepers, in my post above as michaeljeremyjones, I expressed my moderate and non-profane views about the Plame affair on the board. Within 15 minutes, I was called a "troll" by L98Fiero, had my posting privileges revoked AND my original post was deleted so none of you could read or respond to it. Sound a little like Stalinist Russia to anyone? I am amazed by how quickly the powers that by on this board responded. Geez.
Fortunately, I remembered that I had a second screenname from before, so I logged on with that and posted this so you all would know.
You are not hearing an uncensored viewpoint on this site and you are not being given the opportunity to freely converse and change minds.
Anyway, I will probably stop reading this site because it is clear that it is not a "marketplace of ideas" but rather a tightly controlled locus for just a few views. Plus, I have to study. SEE YA!!!!!!!! Thx for the good times while they lasted . . .
Thank God, you obviously are posting on the wrong site anyway. You might try DU, they really go for mindless drivel.
We know. We also know when something has been pulled, because it appears on the screen as 'comment removed by moderator'.
We all agree to certain rules when we decide to post here. If you don't want to abide by those rules, then don't post here. You'd get tossed off if you don't obey the rules at any other specific political site, e.g. DU.

It is a site for those of a conservative viewpoint. If that is not you, then you won't be happy here anyway, so you might as well go.
