I am very, VERY concerned about the recent censorship trend on SBP. One of the unique strengths of this blog is its democratic character - people post shit and eat shit for it, reprimanded by fellow bloggers. But the shit has always been out in the open, for anyone to see and evaluate. Deleting posts because you think they may be offensive offends everyone else - what if we want to see for ourselves what the offense was, and respond to it?
Censorship is a marker for mistrust in our powers of analysis. It's bad for our community and the genuine, albeit raunchy at times, camaraderie on this blog. I honestly think that if the trend continues, the blog will lose a lot of contributors. Let the blog continue to function as a genuine Socratic forum - do not tamper with its dynamics!
