Why is this board constantly censored.

Why is this board constantly being censored. You have deleted the post about elderly people.......which was a major joke.

You deleted everything about Bali? There is not a day that goes by that anything controversial gets cut out.

No doubt I will be forced to write a public article about the censorship. Obviously you want people to read only what you think they should read and not what people are talking about.

Ever since a few months ago Danny's had a bug up his ass. It's true the board is more travel focused ... and much more boring. It seems they would prefer to have a stupider audience so they delete anything that might remotely stir the pot.

I am sure that since you used the phrase "a bug up his ass" this post is soon dead

Get over it, Question.
It's not a censorship (as in "free speech") issue. It's Fodor's board. They set the rules. If you don't like the rules, don't participate. It's that simple.
I am sure the Fodor's people were quivering when they read your threat to write a "public article"!

Don't you think the Bali post might have been helpful to some uninformed traveler?

For example, anybody getting fed up with the trawling for customers of this guy?

You can just about bet he would never hesitate to try to cheat you out of a good value, since he feels no constraints to observe Fodors policies against commercial promotion here.

Question: What's it to you why this board is constantly being "censored?" I await your public article.

If you don't like it here, don't let us keep you. Bye...

FYI, posts about the situation in Bali have not been removed from the Asia board. (true as of 10-15 evening)

Agree that it's time to squelch "Jack's" ubiquitous posts on all the Italy threads. There are several regular posters on the Europe forum who provide good advice, are in the travel business and manage to avoid the in your face solicitation of Jack.

There were two Bali threads, one which started before the bombings, which said in the title some like "Have you been to Bali". It is gone. Maybe you are talking about the sympathy messages.

This is Fodors sandbox and they get to make the rules. If you want to play you have to abide by the rules, even though you may disagree with them.

leave it alone! Fodors and Random House do not need to continue hosting this great FREE site. If they want to remove ANY thread for ANY reason it is their business. If you don't like it, go away. Or better yet - start your own site where anyone can say anything they like. And take the whiners with you.

Because they are liberal commies that is why. No further explanation needed.

Never understood the juxtaposition of liberal with commies. Liberals--true liberals, that is--are liberal in their views and policies, not wanting to tell others what to do. It's conservatives who seem to want to always tell others what to do, similar to totalitarian regimes like the former USSR. So shouldn't it be conservative commies?

Xxx, I agree but I think Conservative Nazis may be more accurate.

I do not mind the censoring if it is disrespectful of the readers but on many occasions I have found the censoring happening for no reasons. For example, there was a muslim asking if it is ok to travel to europe...how was that disrespectful???!

I agree that the censoring doesn't seem to make sense. For example i had read a post about music in London and how great British bands are. I was going to post a question about music tours in London for an upcoming trip and when I finally had time to post it was gone. What was so controversial about music? All this censoring will make this board boring. I agree that people shouldn't curse or be overly rude but why can't they just delete those post?

Who is it that wants to redistribute the wealth...... It is the socilalists=liberals=communists. Who is it that wants to tax us to death for any reason....the socialists=liberals=comunnists. The liberals want to control our life, the liberals want people to pay for the out of control behavior of others. The liberals like to spend other peoples money for whatever reason.
