This is the kind of thing I'm talking about. Do you think some of these guys are right-wing nutjobs, or Republican shills trying to shut down discussions of issues that are 'dangerous' to them?

The internet can be a powerful place, and much information that would generally not reach too many people becomes widespread via the web. Discussion of the information keeps the topic front-of-mind, keeps it near the top of the first page in the forum index, and is thus doubly dangerous to those who are negatively affected by greater public awareness.

Do you think I'm on to something, or do you think I just need to get more sleep?

Things that make you go "hmmmm".
It wasn't just trolling, flooding and the like. They were active in banning people, and they were paying big bucks as well.

This is just the US agencies. One can only imagine the amount of time, energy and money the Chinese (and others) are spending to shape the minds of youth, and to inflame the faithful, all over the world.

And here I thought this thread was going to be about Ramona and Beezus.

I'm pretty sure I never joined that forum. But if it full of woke morons, I probably would get banned.

Guess I will head on over and find out

That completely depends on the "I-have-no-life" mods there

I saw some familiar tracks, over there. Their mods are a bit aggressive, though. Or, were.

Any forum that censors based on thoughtcrime isn't worth even looking at
