Re: Let's Start a New KC Indymedia Site

chuck, as i mentioned in another thread, not all censorship has to be government censorship. journalists are censored by their editors, religious groups censor their members, businesses censor their press releases. censorship differs from website moderation imo because censorship addresses the ideas or opinions conveyed by the post. by comparision, classic web moderation just involves removing duplicates, flames, incomprehensible posts, or if a post has been miscategorized, putting it into the right category.

if you do not like the political opinion conveyed by an article and remove it, that is censorship. if you do not like a work of art that is posted, and you remove it calling it "bad art", that is also censorship. this site is not supposed to be so limited as to only let through content in line with your politics, opinions or tastes.
