The mods must be angry …
Seems that you cannot stand up to the mods at RMCA.org unless you want to be censored, then banned … and have the forum rules quietly rewritten, without a dated notice of amendment, to justify your banning. This is MY experience with the forums at RMCA.org (mischief.rmca.org).
The moderators, or perhaps just one of them, seems more comfortable editing their own posts and removing mine after I simply made a comment about their treatment of the forum’s members. I was simply commiserating with another member that felt insulted by a moderator.
Quite honestly I had forgotten about an incident with this moderator in the past, but also quite obviously this same moderator was waiting for my return to the forums. As I appear to be “IP banned” I cannot see how the threads I have posted in have been changed so as not to cast a disparaging light on the current RMCA staff.
Also, it should be noted, prior to being banned I sent a PM to the RMCA.org “founder” but have as yet to receive any sort of reply. Unless “You have been banned from this forum” when I try to browse the main rmca.org web site is the founder’s reply?!
If this is what I can expect as a forum member at mischief.rmca.org then perhaps it is best to leave this to the inescapable balance of karma.
As I said, it truly appears censorship is alive and well at RMCA.org. This is also a truly sad state of affairs that a potentially first line resource would allow it … and it begs the question: what else has been removed because someone did not like it?
I will leave this matter with a quote from Voltaire, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
(Who would have thought this quote would get me banned.)
(PS: This ban was lifted approximately two weeks later.)
