I'm trying to find a forum where I can post dissenting views without having my posts removed.

I posted on another forum about the definition of Terrorism. I'll make it a summery here.

Basically I said that if you look at the DOD's definition of Terrorism, you end up noticing that a certain superpower looks as bad as the rest of them.

I had this idea right after 911, but Noam Chomsky uses the argument too and is more articulate.

Anyway I hope this forum won't delete my polite but dissenting posts.

Thankyou,

The Rev

It must have been the DU (Democtratic Underground). They censor posts for content all the time, and kick people out for disagreeing with them.

Oh. Wait. It looks like you agree with their point of view.

I guess it wasnt them, then.

While I don't agree with you, censorship is a poor substuitute for discrediting a position through debate and fact.

I don't post in places that censor dissenting opinions for exactly this reason. If I wanted to post somewhere where my positions are universally accepted, I stay with email or start my own forum.

One would hope as long as the poster is civil....and does not use the 3 B's...(Bigot/Bastard/Boring) Yes I made these up myself, there should be no censorship on a good board. Unforunately...not all boards are good...heh

Unlike the real world I think most of these forums lean to the left........I am a member of 4 or 5 of them and they have many more liberal posters then they do conservative ones.........

I think Debate Politics Forums is one of the most balanced on the net and I would like to compliment and thank the staff and the moderators on the leeway they give posters to express their opinions.......:cheers: :good_job:

Rev, come on, share with us which forum censored you. I posted a short sentence on a forum and they told me that my response was unacceptable. What? They are too serious there, so I said too-da-loo to them.

I was posting on Democratic Underground, but I hated it. No one really talks to each other. All they do are rant and rave and bash Republicans. BORING. And they all sound bitter. Blech.

Navy, I am surprised to see you say that. I left a forum before coming here because I was getting bashed on a daily basis because I was one of the few liberals. If you want, I'll tell you which board it was--you'll be right at home. ;)

They had a "reputation" button where you could click on it and say something positive or say something negative, and you had a score. If you were in negative numbers, people were saying bad things about you. It was like high school. What was so funny is I knew who all the liberals were because they had the negative numbers. LOL

Well mabe its becasue you were wrong. And of course the DOD isnt responsible for soldiers or agents using Boeing 737's to run into skyscrapers. Or detonating car bombs infront of churches and innocent people. But of course the US is responsible for terroism. The US is also responsible for 911 itself we brought it upon ourself. We twisted the mens arms to hijack planes with box cutters. So of course we are responsible for terroism. :lol:

the apathy of Americans
shortcomings of America . as thick as a fog in LONDON!
the people in America are destitute !
the weary ,sick ,tired masses, are huddled in their basements.
Clutching onto duct tape and plastic,practicing duck and cover drills
waiting for the big bopper to return



They bow to their ELITE master American race ,who enslave them with mumurs of patrioticism, while they clutch their hearts.
and send their week end only Natl Gaurd ,to protect their american oil wells in Iraq.
apathy because they dont want to see how ugly they are,they only see beauty in their reflction.

As beauty is in the eye of the beholder ,they truely believe that they talk to god ,and are the dieties of defli .
with Their pompous attitudes ,they do not want to see the real America.The America that is destitute,and weary.they owe so much money to china and japan that they need oil wells for secutirty lest they be deault natl debt payments

The American dream ,is a Nightmare .that is why they see only through eyes that only tell them lies.
