The admins on this site are both attractive and intelligent. I have no complaints to make. Instead, I would like to congratulate them on their exemplary editorial policies. If only certain other weblogs were run like adequacy, the world would be a better place.

Update [2001-7-20 20:20:19 by Peter Johnson]: Edited to remove excessive profanity and to improve readability.

<p>Seems that someone <i>translated</i> my ranting.. ;-)</p>

<p>And what's wrong with some <b>excessive profanity</b>? At first glance, it seems like this site occupies some sort of no-man's zone between plastic and geekizoid .. but now it seems to be something completely different.</p>

<p>Just remember that censoring is wrong, and you'll be able to sleep better at night.</p>

You're entirely wrong there. If I'm engaging in the act of censorship, I'll actually sleep better if I believe that it's right. Think about it.

Are you adequate?

I guess that I'd care a bit more if I hadn't been rattling a few cages.. still what is your reasoning that makes it right to censor comments/stories/diaries?

Offensive, yes; profane, yes. But were there any complaints? Plus what's to say that militant christians might be offended by other diaries expounding pagan beliefs? (Not that I am offended by that particular example .. I'm happy to see someone find a spiritual experience in any form.)

So what is basically being said is that the authors are gods around here, and if a lowly user wishes to expound any controversial opinion, whether against the grain, offensive, or profane; said authors see perfectly fit to silence the words directly posted by the users of the site. I find it hard to believe that this is the same group that was at odds with Michael Sims, especially around the time of Signal 11's departure from slashdot.

Adequacy is not Kuro5hin or Slashdot. It is also not a sand box for adolescents - or those who just act like children - to wallow in while calling each other names and looking to find a present left behind by the neighbor's cat.

This is an edited site. That means we, the editors, will edit content that we consider to be in need of editing by our editorial staff.

Adequacy is no different than the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal. We choose which stories to publish. We decide which commentary from our readers is fit for publication. We dictate the nature of the site.

Your diary is a privlege, not a right. Anything posted to it may be adjusted by any editorial staff member at any time for any reason. Your diary and comment posting privleges may be revoked if there is compelling reason to do so. These privleges may also be revoked for no apparent reason whatsoever.

There is also no official editorial policy governing this site of any sort. Editors may choose to agree or disagree with the actions, comments, and interpretations of any other editor. I speak for the entire staff when I say that I do not have the right to speak for any of the staff.

Thank you for choosing Adequacy. Please enjoy your stay.

I agree 100% with this diary entry.

What other weblog in existence would censor the obvious idiots who call them "trolls" or "stupid". They just don't understand this site, and the editors are wise to keep them from spreading their tales of disinformation.

I bet those that are censored could even be CIA operatives working locally to opress radical opinions that they don't want the American people. Fortunately, we have the editors of adequacy to ensure that everything here is clean of the dirty influence of American Opression.
