    just can't seem to upload anything even slightly distasteful or unpopular without the thread getting removed despite everyone saying it's basically free speech. Like Reddit mods Imo, can't argue with them, can't reason, they just do whatever, wouldn't surprise me if this gets removed and i get a mute or something for questioning the divine wisdom of the holy administration.

    In the FAQ -> look for "Are these conditions challenging my freedom of speech?"

    I don't see anything about giving people "Free speech" anywhere. If there were free speech, would Pro-Porn support be allowed? Where's the limit? When does a rule-break become a thread deletion, a post deletion, a warning, or a ban?

    You can't rely on people to be mature and post appropriately (towards the rules or other members) no matter what the format, let-alone a forum as big as this.

    Though the admins here haven't been perfect over the years, I believe they deserve some respect for what they've done to maintain and keep things from crumbling before them for such a long time.

    I've been a member (on and off) for over 5 and a half years. I've seen trolls and people who have sinister reasons for what they do (and people who inadvertently break the rules) and they have had posts deleted, threads deleted, and/or get banned. And in my opinion, the majority of the time, it's what should happen.

    Short answer: There isn't complete free speech and for a lot of cases you'll find that's the right decision.

    I'll agree with you, intentions are good obviously, it just seems like my stuff gets removed for no reason, there's always a bad % of the mod team to make the rest look bad right? Since no one is perfect?

    in my experience merely questioning administration gets you muted or targetted, it happened to GhostWriter as his account seems to be locked From doing anything and he had basically the same concerns if not better.

    As I don't know the contents of the posts or threads, I can't really form an opinion on whether they needed deletion or not. When there's a post on these forums, it's in the hands of the mods whether they believe it's rule abiding or not.

    I understand if you believe your posts have been deleted for the wrong reason/s that you'd think that it was a bad decision, but just not that they're completely bad at their job and it's a bad look for the other admins/mods.

    At the end of the day, it's just a post on a forum. I understand what it feels to lose posts though, I had a Black-out once where my whole post was lost, it's not the same as having it deleted I know.

    Edit - There are some helpful posts on here however, that have been on here for a very long time, that are great and can change lives. There seemingly many more that don't give much back at all, I guess it's a roll of the dice sometimes whether it's going to be good or not.

    rip @FrequencyLimbos , you was a great user, you wa s a bastion o free speech.
     
  6. This site isn't meant to be about "freedom of speech". It's about porn/sexual addiction recovery.

    Freedom of speech is a law in some countries that stops the government from silencing you. It doesn't pertain to private entities such as online forums.

    This site is privately owned and they can do whatever they want with it, no matter what I or anyone else think. I imagine the off-topic wasn't meant to be used the way some users are using it. I think the toxicity of some of the threads have driven away some good posters in the past and posters constantly bitching about women and gays in off topic doesn't help anyone much

    welcome to the forum, hope you're ready to quit pmo.
     
  12. I am not saying you specifically are a bad poster. But there is constantly threads/posts being made on here that bash women and gays. Some good female and gay posters are now gone and I think it is because of that.

    Your earlier threads that got removed, the thread titles seemed a bit provocative in my opinion. So the mods would of seen these threads about women and probably shut it down because those threads usually get out of hand which reflects badly on the site when people from the outside look in.

    This site is meant to be inclusive of everyone to help get better from sexual addictions and having anything that looks anyway controversial in the off-topic is understandably seen as a hinderence to this goal. I wouldn't be surprised if off-topic is removed or suspended from the site because of so many divisive threads are being made.

    I dont agree with everything they do. But moderation is a thankless task, i certainly wouldn't do it.

    For what it's worth, i have absolutely no interest in debating people who are defending porn (if you don't have a problem with porn, this isnt the site for you) and, as a married man, i find the misogynist streak that shows up here more often than i would like to be rather childish and pathetic.

    There is a huge amount of quality, though, and given that its 2021 and 99% of online forums have disappeared or turned to shit (and im certainly not going to start posting this shit all over social media), i am very grateful for its continued existence and inspiration. Where else are you gonna go? :)

    agreed, where to go? This site seems like the oasis in the desert for pmo addicts who, like me, never dreamed of telling anyone or just felt like commiting self elimination. i myself find use for these sites, but i usually end up muted or banned, in my experience i just question authority, their motives or i call them out on their "mishaps" or abuse and then i suffer for it.
    but as it's fair, I'm nowhere near a saint.

    if i had moderation powers would i be better? Hell no. As a teen when my brother used to administrate or code for Minecraft servers i would ask him for moderation powers cuz i thought i could do good. And cuz i like the power so the latter is the Main reason.

    I'm just impatient, bitter, belligerent. But i try to be logical to compensate i suppose. A comparison: I work now, thankfully, your "managers" or supervisors have the same problems. I like to judge them as well as others who are like 40k a year and say "yeah they got it easy, just attack us daily and suck each other off in the office"
    i guarantee management is a nightmare, that i don't know of yet, and that's an organised company, this is a rag tagg of misfits handing together against an immeasurable threat, greed, lust and desire.
    okay rant over.

    Free speech doesn't really play a part in this, since it's a privately owned website. However I have noticed that the moderation is... Of a varying quality.
