Freedom of Speech!#0

I don't post very often here - but I noticed more than twice now that some of my posts are changed, edited, sentences, opinions added etc. then published on the general message board under my logo and subject line without telling me. Am I the only one who noticed this? Isn't this a (not very subtle) form of censure? Hey, what's up with that???? First Amendment Constitutional Rights are still here...

Not on this web page they're not. This is a privately run page with its own rules and regulations. They are not the government.

It's more like being at someone's house and you act badly and they ask you to leave. Their house, their right.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought a post was either allowed to remain as written by the poster or deleted altogether. I don't think the Mods edit/rewrite posts. If you try to post certain words they may be replaced with #@*$ type symbols, but that is an automatic filter.
PEACE.

I agree with you, Papa. It ain 't right. Your drunken, sensless rants have become the very thing that defines you.

Well, my recent post is on the regular message board; it was my review of the play "Fiction" - I started that new thread and it was very positive and without any "bad" words or anything dramatic or personal attacks or 4-letter words.

can you link me or PM me.. have NO idea what you are talking about. The MODS do not edit posts except to remove copywritten material (i.e. if people post articles in full)

thank you, nina. y'know you work so hard to cultivate a persona and then with one coherent post you see it all come crashing down.
