You make a good argument.

I concede.

Exactly. And 'free speech' is not our mission.

So are you in disagreement over this? Just curious, not trying to egg you on.

No, I don't disagree at all. Hughsie and I were talking about a mission statement for TTA a while back. And here it is, Seth provided it for us.

Oh, I was talking about whether or not Chas is in agreement with this judgement.

Seth's letter states what I have been saying for months, but being shouted down and vilified by the absolute-freedom-of-speech crowd championed by the current admins.

I have been right, they have been wrong.

They still won't admit it.

Is that clear enough? Drinking Beverage

RE: A message from Seth
I love how much you love telling me what Seth thinks of me, perhaps Seth doesn't need you as an official spokesman putting words in his mouth.

Maybe that's a thought. Consider

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

Quote:I don’t see the forum or social media pages as a First Amendment haven, nor have I surrendered my right to set a specific tempo for the community. I do, however, allow many unpleasant and indefensible ideas to be presented so that they can be seen, absorbed and ultimately given the white-hot light of scrutiny that the skeptical community is so well known for. In almost all cases, the good men, women and youth of the TTA community actually provide the rebukes, the refutations and the outrage these bitter pills deserve.

In a rare case, though, I do step in and pull the plug. TTA’s forum is a place of discussion, yes, and free discussion at that. However, is it NOT required to pander to everyone and everything that comes along, and ultimately, it exists to provide conversation, support, encouragement, information and community to the atheist, the agnostic, the freethinker.

It's pretty clear. Seth took the time to write it out.

RE: A message from Seth
My opinion is that they [the admins] were interpreting Seth's wishes as best they knew how & now that they have more clear a directive from him will act accordingly.
