That's not how freedom of speech works. It doesn't give your the right to spam a private forum.

I think if there are post that are very offensive using profane languages which I believe if someone will read it as a trash comment then I believe the moderator may have it deleted and in our understanding is that it is being censored. Will just have to continue doing constructive postings as we are required to since this is always noted on the ANN thread policy of an ICO we are participating.

You are free to write whatever you want and share whatever you want without restrictions, but you are not allowed to Spam.
Mods can restrict the freedom of your posts especially if you are wearing a signature "This restriction is only if you post spam or violate the rules."
If you feel any injustice, please complain here. [1]
I checked your account and you have [1 topics removed [2]] & [8/10/2018 9:32:21 PM woke up]
I think this deleted topic is the reason why you created this post, can you share it?

This is absurd.  You have no expectation of freedom of speech from a private forum.  I don't know if you're thinking of the 1st amendment of the US constitution, but that's a guarantee that the government won't stand in the way of you expressing your opinions, not private citizens.  This is a common misconception in the US, especially among the SJW crowd who don't understand life or how anything works in the real world.

In any case, it'd be nice to have examples instead of a blanket statement.  Bitcointalk has rules, and if you violate them, your post will probably get deleted.  I've had quite a few posts deleted and have never contested them.  It's not my forum, and it's not yours either.

We need more censorship - the current spam crap is violating  my freedom to read rights. Smiley

Who are involved in censoring moderating this website?


The mods are responsible for enforcing the rules. Did you break the law of the land? Would breaking the lass of your country be a threat to your freedom of speech? Sometimes you can't just say anything you want if it breaks the rules and causes damage or danger to someone else. Care to give us some examples of this 'censorship'?

I thought I was the only one feeling that there is censorship on the Bitcoin talk forum. That's a crying shame that on a forum like this, which is all about our freedoms of all sorts, we encounter such a disgraceful thing as censorship... Angry

Such as? There are rules here for a reason and if you break then posts may be removed or users banned. Without rules things turn into compete anarchy and there needs to be some order here to have a functioning board for discussion. Otherwise it would be just wall to wall spam... oh wait, never-mind.

Ha. We do need to get harsher and clamp down on certain things like spam and farming etc, but people aren't going to have opinions removed just because someone doesn't like it unless you're doing it just to be disruptive and derail threads etc. Reads the rules and try to play by them and you likely won't have your post removed.

The owner of Bitcoin Talk and an anonymous individual named “Thermos”, has banned all talk of breaking protocol upgrades from these forums. In a 2015 post, he states that users cannot talk about any hard fork upgrades on his forums, unless those upgrades already have consensus

I'm guessing you have a source for this? Usually helps if you put the quote in your post.
