I'm banned right now so I thought I would throw together a 15 min blog about censorship and AirG "Comunity Partol", since I know we all love it so much. Plus I have a particular story I would like to share that I am sure many of you, if you chat on AirG, have experienced.
I was chatting in the forums, like I normally do, and I came across a thread made by some non-American called "is it safe to live in America?" or something. I hate these threads. Almost as much as I hate a Jesus Freak thread (or even a God hater thread... you Atheists ain much better than your competition). Anyways, you know me I decided to respond, so I wrote a few things. Got some posts up. The conversation was going. Then, when I wanted to make a final post...... PROFANITY BLOCK!
I didnt even cuss once! And the words were not even that aggressive. Nowhere near profane. It got me to thinking, because this has happened numerous times before, so I clicked back a page and took me some screenshots. Now lets see exactly what I said.
Lets play FIND THE PROFANITY:
"THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE A WELL THOUGHT OUT OPINION ON AIRG. :| PEOPLE WHINE AND COMPLAIN, POST 40 TIMES WITH GIBBERISH AND LIES, TELL U UR WRONG, AND 16 HOURS LATER THE CONVO HAS MOVED ON EVEN THO YOUR POST NEVER GOT ADDRESSED WITH ANY SORT OF WEIGHT. :| KING DAVID = ONLY ONE IN HERE MAKING ANY SENSE"Anyone see any cuss words? Anyone see anything profane at all!? Im tired of internet companies like AirG censoring what I say regardless of the decency facors of it all. And blaming some "program" that is poorly written and nobody believes in anyway? When you "report posts", its supposed to go somewhere, right?
I think AirG has Mods just like any other website.
Its a shame they hide behind this precious, but non-functioning "community patrol" program that only causes the kids its trying to protect to come up with other derogatory terms to call each other.... things like "CHOMO" and "BAGINA" (Cuz misspelling the word causes the program to "miss it"). Then you get banned like I did right now... I said tweaker once.... so I gotta sit out for 15 mins.
Okay AirG. Hope you like what I did for the last 15 mins. This time there is nothing you can do about it.
