I am fascinated how posters, trolls or not complain about the voting and claim it to be censorship. If you feel that way, don't post. The majority of the posts on this site are civil whether a poster is agreeing or disagreeing. It seems to get derailed when someone posts a valid point but then slams a previous poster or the whole site with an idiotic personal attack. This will get voted down and when it does then we go into the whole censorship BS. For me personally the site is great, I may not agree with everything, I may not have an opinion on everything, or I may choose to just read the posts and submissions. Many of the submissions and posts are thought provoking and engaging.

I had to look up trolls, because for the life of me I cannot understand why someone would do it? What does it do for the person? Check out some of the definitions, I now understand some of the reasons now. I know I have been sucked in a few times!!!
