LXer: Opinion: Censorship on Linux Sites isn't Cool


Published at LXer:

Most of the time I enjoy LinuxAdvocates.com. No, really I do... but there are times I disagree with the opinions expressed by one of the primary authors there (Dietrich Schmitz). He likes to write somewhat controversial articles... and I sometimes like to comment on them. In many cases there is no problem... but if you disagree with him you may very well find your comment deleted... and all of your future comments requiring moderation. What it leads to is a complete lack of opinion diversity. Rhetorical questions: Have you ever been censored on a Linux-related website? If so, why? How did you react afterwards?

Trolls should be banned.

Opinions should not be censored.

The first thing to do if your opinion is censored (and no insults or other rule breakages were involved) is contact the site owner and tell them about it (without insults). If they refuse to reply or listen, then make the situation known to as many using the site as possible ... and other (legal) ways you can think of to put pressure on the site owner. If that doesn't do anything, go somewhere less totalitarian.

I totally agree. If a blogger is not able to stand constructive criticism he shouldn't post articles in the first place.
