 How to Combat Tyrant Editors

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:
Oct 27, 2001
I have been hearing a lot of gripes about the overbearing editorial policies here at, both here and abroad. Defending against this is actually quite simple, and you just might be suprised to find that you are already an expert...
Now, I don't want to be accused of subversive behaviour by the staff here at, but I simple must point out that the perfect way to combat their domineering methods is through the hearty application of banality in your comments. Such a strategy should surely serve to subvert such severe suppression. And if that makes me a subversive in their eyes, then so be it. For I cannot bear to see the anguish of such well-intentioned readers as spaceghoti persistently 'given the shaft' by the editors with no recourse for their own defense.

Consider the logic: the editors would have little call to delete or modify posts based on such vague criteria as 'banal', and might eventually find themselves in the uncomfortable position of deleting most every post on the site (in the spirit of consistency) should they decide to travel that particular road.

What anguish? The amusing antics of the juvenile Editors doesn't cause me anguish. It's the announcement by Elby that people really do mean the hopelessly dogmatic material that fills the front page. The Editors are only a small part of that anguish.

A troll's true colors.
