: : This is for everyone who is irate that posts are taken down on the Ragozin board: What, precisely, do Ragozin and Friedman owe you? Why do they owe it to you?

: Certainly Rag and Co. have the right to leave whatever posts they want up on THEIR board. The point is that it speaks more that they create a bulletin board allegedly for public debate and then selectively remove critical posts, than any post could ever say. Oh well, isn't the first time communists have cracked down on free speech :). Seriously, I agree with what you say in general. I feel the same way about people bitching on this board about the choice of races or analysis in the ROTW, which is free or about commissions for horse buys they have nothing to do with. Instead of bashing Rag for censoring posts, maybe we should praise JB for not doing it. By the way, Leslie, have you considered that maybe your post was removed because the spelling made it completely unreadable?

Alleged by whom? Alleged where? Is "allegedly" (asserted without proof) really the word you want? Is free speech a categorical imperative for JB, or is this a marriage of convenience? Why is Noam Chomsky practically banned from the airwaves in the United States? He is a minor celebrity in Canada. I must admit that I agree with the second half of your post, the part where you agreed with me. Go figure.
