Happened across one of those divisive, opinionated, off topic posts, and was trying very hard to not point out the glaring errors in the assumptions made by the author.

And just when I was almost about to start the feeding process (against my better judgment), the post disappeared.

Thank-You Yes

Agreed, especially the latter, considering some of the adversarial OP's and threads begun recently (I take it that's what is being referred to). I had gotten to the point I didn't care to check out the forum.

I have been away from the forum for a bit and this is most welcome news.  Is there a policy explanation by Logos or did they just begin taking action?

No new policy or position. This was part of an overall response to a particular incident and came from the top.

Well, even if it is only for the "particular" incident, I'm still thankful Yes

truly many thanks, stephen, to all who may have been involved. Sometimes the overall health of the body requires decisive action. Well done.

It is amazing how people flock together like little sheep!

I for one... Do not appreciate censorship!  I say let the people speak their mind.

However, I do believe in some type of order.  But, c'mon folks just because ONE forum member

gets out of line, get thicker skin, don't feed the animal! 

What you do not feed, will die...

I say people speak up, share your minds with others.

Sometimes people need to hear things we/they may not like, this can make us better.

MJD,

Anyone who enters a forum (another's property) has to abide by the rules of that forum. Logos has allowed a great latitude of discourse on the forum. A constant and flagrant violator has to be dealt with.

Generally, it is Bob's position to allow the forums to go uncensored. In this case, however, there were racist,  sexist and other derogatory comments that were way over the top. The forums need to be a comfortable place for all people to come and learn how to use Logos software. I feel that comments that cross that line must be censored. If Bob has a default position, however, it is to allow freedom of speech.
