    For the maximum tolerance, and least censureship, as I have consistently for 6 years.

    I saying the biggest problem, IMO, have been self-appointed vigilantee gangs, misusing HRs to suppress POV.

    One can advocate POV all folks like.

    It is organized attempts to suppress POV that I find most ugly.

    What in my comment here led you to belief I am advocating the opposite of my intent.

    Sorry to miscomunicate to such an extent, but thanks for the feedback to alert me that something miscommunicates this point.

    I've had trusted user status for as long as I can remember, and have been here over six years. I don't think I've used my HR capability but a few times, if any.

    I don't an audience this sophisticated needs protection from ideas.

    I've also argued that anyone who really wants to should be able to see "hidden comments" if they are over 18, and actively check off a waivor.  On the theory that be making it less significant, there would likely be less fuss over it.

      Because I totally mis read you.  Probably missed an adverb or adjective along the way.

      Sry about that.

      •  Well, thanks for allerting me on this (0+ / 0-)

        smoothnmellow.  If you got this impression, many others may have as well.

        It may have been that long tangetial aside I put in brackets between the noun and verb.

        Also, I was being intential abstract, so as not to aggravate pie fights about the very specific example I'm thinking of, and seem to have been the select and targeted focus of kos' ratings bans.

        Which I impressed and relieved that his appears to have researched this well.  This are not anywhere near as arbitrary as he says they might be, IMO.

      This is what I've noticed as well.

        wasn't more succinct.  

        Because, IMO the two of us here, have focused on some really critical core issues and criteria.

        Brevity on the first pass in not my strong point, smoothnmellow.  But, with help with someone like yourself, we can boil it down to some well defined criteria PDQ.
