This was never posted. There are previous posts in this thread that bash Americans,religion,and recently claims that if your not a minority of some sort,you cannot understand oppression (which is ridiculous) .Was my post more offensive than those topics?After my un-posted message several were allowed that did not go along with my point of view. Are we now only allowing ideas that are politically correct or go along with the point of view of the moderators? I thought this was a forum to discuss and exchange ideas,as long as they are not hateful or inflammatory.I hope everyone is bothered by the fact that this type of censoring is happening. After all, what kind of board is it when you can only talk about things that everyone agrees with? I would hope that even if you,the reader, do not agree with my viewpoint, it would bother you that you never got a chance to see it.
Sux don't it. Unfortunately almost all forums have moderators that shouldn't be moderating.
I used to post more often, but after seeing a few disappear for the lamest of reasons I started posting less. I also don't post as much. It sux spending several minutes writing something just to find that some moderator doesn't like your opinion & blocks it.
I've stated this many times here: I enjoy talking politics, religion, culture, etc., but I don't particularly enjoy seeing it at VGC's site. I come here to get away from that stuff.
Burk, you brought up the phrase "slippery slope", and I think that applies here. If your thread is approved, then that will allow others to post threads that don't pertain to video games. And this site is dedicated to video games.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to play Food Fight on my 360.
I agree with mesk and the OP on this as well. While I can appreciate that Dave wants to have good forum standards, this whole notion of having to "wait for approval" on any messages posted (including this very one I am typing right now), is ridiculous. This is the only forum I have ever been on that does this. And, I am always wondering if my post will be edited, or just out-right deleted by an overzealous mod.
Really, if you are registered to the site and have above 10 posts, I see no reason to have folks "wait for approval" on messages. If, after the fact, someone posts something that goes against the TOS, a mod can come in and edit or delete the post. Shouldn't be the other way around.
I'm the one who said you can't understand oppression unless you're a member of a minority group. I'm also white, straight, I've been both thin and fat, and know there's all kinds of horrors in life awaiting for everyone, no matter who you are...
You don't want details. They don't belong here.
I want to know why your post was censored. You raised a really good point, one that deserved an answer.
@JustLikeHeaven is there any way to make it a rule that more than one moderator needs to agree a post is inappropriate before it is completely deleted?
