Is this forum anything to do with the other science forum which is run in an abysmal fashion?
If it is, I will refrain from using this site.
As an advocate a future panel member for internet reform it is my duty to raise awareness of ill run forums who will not be given a licence to operate when mandatory regulations are put in place.

There are pages upon pages of google results for science forum. Will you please clarify to which other forum you're referring?

Perhaps also this will help: topic3.html

The forum you are talking of is the .com site I suspect.

There likely never will be internet regulations of the type you suggest.

If we all chip in we can buy her a nice shiny uniform and an office with a telephone where she can draw up the new executive orders. :D

I thought I addressed directly the OP's point "ill run forums who will not be given a licence to operate when mandatory regulations are put in place."

I will bow to your assessment if I wasn't (obviously I was taking the p**s ,if I can say that under the anticipated regulations)

Perhaps instead of asking everyone to please stay on topic I should have instead asked everyone to please avoid unnecessarily flaming others.

Exactly.

Those who resort to personal attacks should be suspended.

The site I refer to is .com of which some members(and mods) are on here.
I was merely trying to find out if this site is run by the same people.


As for buying me a shiny badge and an office, I am a very politically engaged person and influential and I have contacts everywhere.
Not that I needed to tell you. Or prove it.

Absolutely. Although, whether you do or don't will have no impact on what will be.

Like they say "You die if you worry and you die if you don't ".

Influence has very little to do with censorship and personal preference of what's on the internet

Except maybe in Russia and China?

If one is on the internet, one has to grow a thick skin. You don't get to assert influance and say you will censor anything you don't like. That's not how life works

I agree. In part.

If it were so simple. But the reality is much different.

Growing a thick skin isn't the answer to constant hounding, libel comments, spiteful behaviour and general insensitivity. Is it?

Oh, wait. They say.... It's freedom of speech.

Rubbish. Even that has it's limits.

Try using it on an official or officer of the law. Or somebody above you. You probably won't because you know your place.

Right?

So why mention it? Do you have something to prove to yourself?

No, actually most of us dont. Its a matter of being able to ignore someone if they are trolling you. that only goes so far if someone is asking for specific answers that are not being provided.

Freedom of speech is not valid in a private setting.
