    And, I am quite sure that admin enabled editors can grant themselves an untold number of moderations, to inflict upon any AC that shows the slightest tendency to go aristarchus. Mod me down, janrinok! You know you want to! And if not, have one of your alt-right minions do it for you. Oh, the manatees eating cabbage have nothing on the dezians of SoylentNews!

    Nobody on the staff moderates on the basis of their politics - that would be moderation abuse. Most moderations of your comments are made by the community and are based on the your comment's contents.

    Have you ever stopped to think that perhaps some people are trying to tell you something? That question is entire rhetorical - of course you haven't.

        I have read khallow's journal. We are not working on behalf of any government. We, unlike yourself, allow any political views to be expressed. I can see no connection between that journal entry and this site. As I have clearly stated - what you perceive only exists in your mind.

        This is a privately run site which exists for the benefit of its community. We can accept whomever we wish as members of this community, or we can refuse them admittance. Those that act like adults, behave responsibly and are prepared to discuss topics are welcome. Banning is not something that we do lightly - in fact only one person in 9 years has been banned. You have not been censored - you are expressing your views now. Aristarchus has not been censored because his journals are still there and can be read by anyone. Aristarchus was banned because of his behaviour - not because of his politics, not because of a point of view that he expressed, not because we do not like him, nor to censor him, or for any other of those perceived reasons that you keep shouting about, because none of those are true or even relevant.

        So your point is?

        If you do not like this site why don't you move to a different one? I think that you would be happier, and we certainly would be. But if you choose to stay do not expect our standards to be dropped just so that you can have things your own way. If that is what you expect, go and start your own site - with drugs and hookers if you like.

          Moar ravings from the Mad Grand Censor? Fan mail from a Flounder?

          I have read khallow's journal. We are not working on behalf of any government. We, unlike yourself, allow any political views to be expressed. I can see no connection between that journal entry and this site. As I have clearly stated - what you perceive only exists in your mind.

          None are so blind, etc., etc. Any objective observer can see there is a clear right-wing bias at SN. Even Ncommander saw it, in the horse paste. So janrinok being unlike an AC only exists in his mind, which is troubling.

          Aristarchus has not been censored because his journals are still there and can be read by anyone. Aristarchus was banned because of his behaviour - not because of his politics, not because of a point of view that he expressed, not because we do not like him, nor to censor him, or for any other of those perceived reasons that you keep shouting about, because none of those are true or even relevant.

          True, but all the posts that aristarchus would have made have been censored, only because of his politics, and the fact that janrinok (and several other hidden crypto-alt-right SoylentNews staffers) hate him so badly it makes their teeth ache. So these actually percieved reasons are in fact true, and relevant, and SN is no longer what it purported to be at its launch.

          If you do not like this site why don't you move to a different one? I think that you would be happier, and we certainly would be.

          Yes, I imagine that janrinok and Runsaway would be happy in their bubble, if only rational critics like aristarchus would leave them alone. I have an idea, why don't you move to a different site? We know Runaway cannot, since he has been banned from everywhere else on the internets, even from the Fox News discussion fora.

          So the authoritarians have abrogated to themselves the right to determine what are "bad posts", and what is moderation abuse, and whose website this is. I, for one, do not see the difference from being taken over by Dice. We will have to Buck Feta all over again, but this time we are not leaving.

                  Sorry, but ACs are by definition anonymous, so they can't be sockpuppets. Or is that what bothers janrinok so much, ACs posting as the unofficial and alleged sock-puppets of actors unknown! So now we are all sockpuppets, and Runaway a thousand times over. Don't Spam mod me, bro!!

                    The accounts that ACs try to create ARE sock puppet accounts if it results in having 2 account identities, particularly when they still have an existing working account. (Now somebody is just realising why we have kept one of his very early accounts active - although it appears that he has forgotten all about it.)

                    ACs remain as ACs. Logged in account holders can also post as AC but it doesn't delete their existing account.

                        I wrote a journal criticizing janrinok for pandering to Runaway. 20 minutes later, my journal has been removed and my account banned. The journal is https://soylentnews.org/~Legend+of+Aristarchus/journal/14112 [soylentnews.org]. Janrinok says Soylent News cannot edit or delete journals. Here is proof he lied.

                        Janrinok is now blocking all new accounts. I got an email when I tried to create a new account to post about my journal:

                        Somebody using the email address '*********' has attempted to create an account with the username 'Censored By Janrinok'. Unfortunately it has triggered our security software and the account has been temporarily disabled.

            No they haven't, you never submitted them. It would appear that you censored yourself. We are not obliged to give anyone a platform if we choose not to do so.

            Abusing people is not rational criticism. Why don't you get out of your basement and ask your mom to give you a hug? It is obvious that you are not feeling the love here any more.

                  Who do you think drives that shitty behavior? Most of the liberal users kept it civil while rightwingers spewed baseless lies, personal attacks, and straught propaganda with a solid mix of racist bigotry. Then Trump happened and it got worse, and the bullshit piled up so high that insulting the moron fascists was the only option left.

                  This is all on Soylent News for allowing the shitty behavior, but you go ahead and blame everyone else. Typical rhetoric from you, maybe you should have clamped down on sock puppets and ACs before the community left as was suggested for years?
