I'm gonna be honest here. So please don't discard this post as trolling. After Shi's post, the strawmanning incident, and several other comments made by the staff.. What I'm really getting from all this is that the current administration of the forums is encouraging the censoring of open discussion. Whether they realize it or not. Call me biased or whatever, but if I were you, I would sincerely reflect on a solution before you start turning away members due to the excessive restrictions on what can and can not be said. It is necessary to have order when it comes to politically charged topics like we have on SC.. But in order to keep that order, there has to be a certain amount of objectivity. Which as far as I can tell, none of the admin staff could be considered objective. In fact, quite the opposite. The staff is actively involved in these discussions, which is okay, we should encourage open discussion, not discourage or censor it. But it's literally impossible to stay objective, especially when it involves rules and regulations, when you yourself are actively involved in the discussion. I fear for the health of the forums at this point. So If I may suggest... Either remove the current events section entirely, or find someone who can stay objective about what goes on in those threads. At this point it's not about fighting censorship, but rather the inevitable repercussions that will come from it. (I.e. turning away members.) So I implore you, please reconsider some of your policies, and the possible solutions to maintain order within the current events section without censoring open discussion. That is all. Thank you for your time.
