It seems everytime I assert that Trump's a russian agent, it's removed.

Even with a direct link from an news article saying the same shit, it's removed.

No deleted notice, nothing; just gone from the forums.

Seems like someone's trying to silence a certain message, which leads me to believe it's probably an outside entity from BTCTalk making the requests.

Who knows, maybe it's just moderators removing posts they don't agree with.  Roll Eyes

Perhaps it is time to read the rules.

It would be considered a low quality topic and definitely not the right place to post in META.

This should be in off topic - otherwise it will likely be deleted or moved for you by the moderators.


We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

Why would an entity outside of BTCTalk try to cover up a forum post when there is already some article that you are linking? And moderators don't moderate with their personal opinions in mind, they wouldn't stay a moderator for long if that was the case. Anyway, if there is no deleted message, I'm assuming that means your thread was moved to the Trashcan section, and the reason for that would likely be that you have posted it multiple times, its spam, or you are posting it in the wrong section. Spam is generally defined as low quality topics/comments that introduce little to no points of discussion. So while you might have points of discussion for your topic that you'd like to bring up, if you are not addressing them and just posting a link + an intro, it might be being deleted as spam. There is a TON of spam that is just *insert link* What do you guys think? So even if your topic isn't intended to be something like that, if it follows that kind of format, chances are its catching moderator's attention. Try posting in Off Topic or the Politics section with room for discussion, and it'll be left alone.

Because people here seem to lack critical thinking;

So far, the "Trump is a Russian asset" thread was removed from Ivory Tower (which it seems plenty of Jet Cash conspiracies live without issue), Serious Discussion (which seem to have plenty of other random conspiracies), and politics and society (which was removed this morning, surprisingly, also the section home to anti-vaxers and flat-earthers, that somehow aren't spam?).

If I remember correctly, Bitcointalk operates from the united states. The United States can't exert authority over foreign nations to "gag" their media or forums.

Overall, the only thing that makes sense is a gag order or biased administration, which I highly doubt the latter.

We'll see if this post is deleted (not trashcanned) without explanation.

It's funny how you have the mentality/paranoia of Alex Jones, but the exact opposite political views.  Roll Eyes


Theymos is pretty libertarian. The last thing he'd do is censor people without a reason. A gag order? signed by who? Trump himself? That seems.. Excessive..

I'll just tune in to CNN if i want to hear that Trump is a Russian asset...?

Pretty much why a gag order is the only thing that makes sense. Sure, removing it from the ivory tower is justifiable, I guess. Sure, removing it from serious discussion, why not. But politics and society? Really?

I'm not sure any moderator has the ability to interact with all three boards. I think perhaps only global moderators. I'd be surprised by anyone acting on political bias as well, which pretty much leaves just forced actions by an external party.

There isn't a gag order, no one cares about what people say on a forum, and even if they did, it would take some amount of time between having the order issued, Theymos speaking with lawyers, and then responding/removing a post. Did you post the threads in the three separate boards at the same time, or did you post one after another when they were removed?

Posting a thread title with a link is not interesting.  Posts/threads like this are removed when I see them.

Why don't you take a look at my personal text and then tell me I am censoring topics that are anti-Trump.

You conspiracy guys really are fucking stupid.  It's amazing to me someone can be so stupid as to think that a deep state plot exists to censor them because a few posts/threads are deleted and yet it happens like clockwork ever month or two!  Hey Snowflake no one is working on censoring your government toppling posts/threads!

._.

I mean, if that sort of subject doesn't belong in society/politics, where does it go? obviously not the other two places, which you'd think "president of a nation committing treason = pretty serious stuff", but 'LOLOLOL, DIS JUST TRUMP BROOOO!' trolls kinda derail the conversation.

There's plenty of evidence to be collaborated and such, really, a self-moderated topic would probably be more effective, but it's kinda annoying having to be a fair moderator.

---

I suppose fixing this shit would be just remaking a post, including several links, which I believe I've done in ivory tower (but were deleted, so my work was gone, so I said fuck it all for a while for 'freedom of speech on private platforms').

It's just annoying overall having to retype paragraphs paraphrasing other sources. I might as well just publish to my own platform.

The above is a shit thread and does not belong in the P&S board. The above is more of an advertisement also I don't need you to point out every fucking link on the web I can search them myself.

Self moderating threads isn't a free pass to post whatever you want.  A self moderated shit thread is still getting deleted by me.  Self moderated threads don't have to have fair moderation either.

You think it isn't annoying having to respond to snowflakes who cry conspiracy theory and censorship like mental midgets?

If putting effort into your posts in annoying then perhaps a forum isn't the best venue for you?  If you just want to throw around links head on over to twitter or facebook and interact with a bunch of other like minded individuals and pass around links till your have your fill of them.  There is no 140 character limit here for a reason!

Serious discussion and Ivory tower have additional rules about low quality posts:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2722359.0
Quote
- When you post, you must have a clear point. If you ramble on about nothing, then your post will be deleted.
 - You must stay fairly close to the topic being discussed in each thread.
 - While some amount of error is difficult to avoid, if your English is so broken that you sound stupid, then your post will be deleted.


EDITED:
One liners and a link are not acceptable topic starters in politics and off topic but with serious discussion and Ivory tower even more is expected.

I agree that something like that is not adequate for serious discussion or Ivory tower.

Just posting a link and a single short sentence is not a "serious discussion".

I might not agree with the opinion and convictions held by Jet Cash and Notbatman but they are serious about the discussion that they post there. They have a religious conviction for the topics that they post there and discuss it in great detail.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

BADecker often posts quotes from an article and that's pretty much it to 'bump' his posts. Pretty much, it's advertising. tbh, 'cnn' was targetted as 'fake news' so, it's pretty easy to think 'cnn = blogspam'. However, this deleted post example was only the one in off-topic.

I'm pretty sure I spent a good chunk of time typing out Trump being a Russian asset, timeline, links, sources to post in ivory tower.

However, for ivory tower, I did shitpost in other threads in response to trolls fucking with my threads, but it was new, so meh.

I'm betting that was wiped because *all* my posts were purged from that section rather than just one or two.

I'm pretty sure serious discussion had a bit more than a link, but I wasn't able to pull up that thread. Probably too much trolling and bickering to actually be "serious".

You know FHF is doing a great job when you have "fine people on both sides" whining about a conspiracy.

bluefirecorp_ - there is always 4chan if this forum is too "gag" for you. You can thank me later.

it's kinda annoying having to be a fair moderator.

But you expect the actual moderators to be fair to you according to your own standards? You're taking "entitled little brat" to a whole new level.

Wait a minute... The FHF a rag tag group from an american city fought in WW2. Pearl harbor happened in WW2.

Pearl harbor is in Hawaii... Stitch crash landed in hawaii.

Ad tinfoil hat and I get... the BTCT SS moderation and crushers of ideas.

Or a reasonable moderation policy applied to everyone, and explained when feelings are bruised. Can't be this it's to obvious.

One liners and a link are not generally acceptable topic starters in P&S.  The OP also has several Trump/GOP/Conspiracy threads already along with even more threads discussing Trump and American Politics specifically, including a "shoot the shit" mega thread.

If a thread like that is reported I will evaluate it and remove, leave or move it if necessary case by case.  P&S isn't twitter...

I don't always see every post or every thread.

As mentioned I am an equal opportunity troll censor!!!!!!!!
