Private site so its a non issue, plus Digg is more or less to unholy combination of retards from Freeperland, Daily Kos and the Myspace political forums. I used to site for a year and found Newsvine to be much better.

Man I thought this was a Gov't conspiracy, but it's just net nerds gaming the system. Thus NOT Censorship. Really, you shouldn't go to sites that use errant terminology.
Yes, because it's only censorship if the government is doing it. :lol:

Shiner Bock for me.
Tangent: I was in SC last week for a family reunion and my dad brought a bunch of beer over to my uncle's house. His brother (who is a staunch conservative military man) asks him what he's got. My dad says he's got Shiner Bock and Corona. My uncle asks for the American beer and my dad hands him the Shiner Bock. My uncle responds "Texas ain't no goddamn part of my America, gimme a Corona."

Yes, actually. Only GOVERNMENT can censor you.
So if one of the mods on here doesn't like what you are saying and deletes everything you say what are you calling it then?

A private site.
Whether private or government does not change the textbook of censorship, but the acceptability or lack therefore, IMO of course.

Sure it does, the government isn't allowed to censor anything by law, private sites can censor anything they want to.

Governments have allowed themselves the 'right' to 'censor' the free speech of the media and private individuals over and over again. Censorship the very basis for our system of laws regarding how information is transmitted or how an idea is conveyed. You're not allowed to place pornography on a sign in Broadway because the government has created laws to censor what can and can't be printed near children. The government doesn't allow you to print images of aborted babies on condoms because of decency laws. You aren't allowed to hold rallies wherever you please because the government can censor you in certain locations. No, no. The government is very much by law allowed to censor. The list of things the government is by law allowed to censor goes on and on. Ask any news agency. And private individuals with enough power can and do censor others.
