I didn't 'whine' about censorship. I believe the functionality of this site that causes comments to disappear is censorship. Ryan says it isn't because no single individual is controlling what people see. Yet that's exactly what it does, for anonymous users.

My second point is that this censorship function may have a reasonable argument for it in limiting, basically, hate speech. Yet this is not how people use it.

People use this site like Z Jones below. They consider it 'their website'. That may be what it is. Yet I think this website could be, ideally, a public forum rather than a circle of friends.
