Why do you ban posts? I don't get it....who decides what is suitable and what isn't? Why filter information people are allowed to see? Not writing this to be a idiot...i honestly want to know.

To me it flies in the face of everything this movement is about...information un-impeded to the people. Banning information is what dictators do to influence the way people think. Aren't we above that here? Doesn't everyone get a voice?

What comment of yours have they banned? I thought an anti racist post I made was benned but then it showed up. I do know that they reserve the right to bann without any explanation so you may get no response.

http://occupywallst.org/forum/architects-and-engineers-for-911-documentary/ Check that out! Only comments left are mine. I've never seen that before.

Incidentally, Google can be quite useful.

Wow. I know they're very concerned about being seen as 9/11 conspiracy theorists, I suppose that is where the banning comes from. Probably over cautious. BTW I see no comments! All removed.

[-] 0 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

same with me...only comments i can see are mine.

[+] -4 points by oldJim (-96) 1 year ago

I only see my comments. That's because they aren't hidden for us. However, your comments, my comments, and everyone else's comments on that thread have been removed. Welcome to marxism. Lol

[-] 1 points by nomdeguerre (1775) from Brooklyn, NY 1 year ago

Hmmm. But I see mine even if I log off and delete all cookies. I'll try it again.

But still, this is a new level of censorship. I've seen many shadow banned posts, but I've never seen a banned discussion with all comments removed.

[+] -4 points by oldJim (-96) 1 year ago

The system is probably detecting your IP. Try changing your IP with a proxy server, or by using a friend's computer. Your comments have been removed from my point of view.

Nothing special. Occupy has always promoted censorship. They are built on it. It's a prominent feature of communism and marxism which Occupy is built on.

[-] 1 points by nomdeguerre (1775) from Brooklyn, NY 1 year ago

Wow, no matter what I do (and some of them are relatively high level), they still know it's me -- the same things used to work. Maybe they recognize my computer's handshake. Maybe this is a gubmint monitoring site. Hi fellas!

What - and so that is why you participate on this forum - hey?

Go to your bircher site - I am sure they would never censor anything you have to say.

Ya stupid fuck.

[-] -3 points by oldJim (-96) 1 year ago

I like Occupy, but that doesn't mean I hide my head in the sand when I see problems with it. There is a lot of censorship. The fact you haven't noticed this is quite surprising. Your karma points indicate that you're an addict here. You come here everyday since you have nothing else to do. Don't you see all the censorship? You also know that Occupy is a communist protest and that communists have a history of censorship. It's a disadvantage that comes with the package. I accept it. I can live with it. It doesn't mean I wish it was that way.

It doesn't help Occupy to follow it like a cult follower who agrees with everything that goes on.

Forced labor camps are not communism. I really don't like when people try to compare Stalin's rule and other abusive leaders to communism. They are not the same thing.

[-] -2 points by oldJim (-96) 1 year ago

I didn't mention Stalin at all. I'm comparing Occupy to communist organizations of the past, not to the theory of communism which you find in the works of scholars. Occupy is not theory, it's practice.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

what communist organizations of the past are you referring? I bet as soon as you list it I can point out to you that they weren't actually a real communist organization.

Who says I have not seen censorship in action? I tend to look at what was censored. Basically distractions and items of a divisive nature or items that have nothing to do with moving forward to a better healthier society for ALL.

My Karma points indicate that I have been on this forum for quite a while - without getting booted.

Yeah so - you are saying that the MSM is communist now? R U also saying that the government is communist as well? I mean they do a lot of censoring.

Nah - you are just fucked-up and are trying to fuck with this forum.

[-] -2 points by oldJim (-96) 1 year ago

The only thing I said is the truth. Occupy is based on communism and communists are known for censoring information and shying away from transparency. These are the biggest problems that have plagued Occupy from the beginning. It's no secret that their lack of transparency lost them many supporters who had donated and couldn't track what happened to their money.

Nah - you are just fucked-up and are trying to fuck with this forum.

I don't consider this forum as having anything to do with Occupy.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (25258) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

So go away. Find a site more amenable to your faulty perceptions/thinking.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25258) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Good query - but perhaps you need to contact the site admin.

To give you a start you may want to look at;

About

And

Public Forum - Read the Rules Before Posting

This 2nd one I have asked for an update on - as this forum as well as the movements have evolved since the beginning.

[-] 0 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

Thanks.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25258) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

No problem - I think that it is part of taking part in the forum that individuals should talk to the forum site admin - but that we also need to get familiar with the information that is available already prior to exploring or advancing changes - as those questions may have already been addressed - does not mean that they can't be discussed further "IMO" - but it lets us see what reasoning has been used - and so provides information to forward further thought/consideration.

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

Yeah i agree.

I wish the public forum rules were a little more detailed...what specific topics are off limits etc.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (25258) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

I think the gist of it ( forum activity goals ) is having discussions on how to move forward - the people moving forward to regain control of society. Like I said the rules page could be updated - send in a request - list things you feel are missing or are unclear.

We have to ban those whom are disruptive to the flow of progress.

[-] 1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

are you a mod?

[-] 1 points by ProblemSolver (79) 1 year ago

Do you agree with my statement ?

  • We have to ban those whom are disruptive to the flow of progress.
[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25258) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

That would be you. For 1 anyway. But you just hate censorship - OH wait - Right - censorship that is not yours.

[-] 0 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

No...not in the slightest. That's something i could see coming from North Korea....or another dictatorial country. Ban people that don't share your particular beliefs.

I think banning people that are blatantly trolls and all they're doing is trying to piss people off is something different however.

[-] 1 points by ProblemSolver (79) 1 year ago

No, I am not a mod.

[+] -4 points by oldJim (-96) 1 year ago

Read the forum rules. 9/11 conspiracy theories are banned for the sanity of all posters here. You can debate that topic on the thousands of sites that conspiracy theorists have setup over the years. 9/11 conspiracy theories are basically spam, and that's why they are banned.
