Censorship on AF

My popular "Sex in an Airstream" thread has been locked.

The Air Forums are invaluable. But let us not forget that its value is based solely on the contributions of its members. Censorship dilutes the value of that contribution.

However, in the case of "Sex in an Airstream," if the locking was due to complaint from a minority of members, I am extremely grateful for your efforts.

Why?

I will defer to Dick Cavett: Censorship feeds the dirty mind more than the four-letter word itself.

Regards,
FAN

I am dissapointed the thread has been blocked. I found it amusing and informative and way more entertaining than the usual black water issues. Awhile back I intentionally pushed a thread called "Camping in Bear Country to see how far we could go. At one point I even asked for moderation, to no avail. I would vote that the Thread be changed to "EX IN AN AIRSTREAM". Tales of litigation, murder and mayham.
If people were offended by the thread they ciyld have easily eliminated those feelings by unsubscribing from the thread.

LOL! One letter changes the whole thread!

The older I get the more I scratch my head about the strange duality of prudishness, and implied sexual signals in so much of culture.

Its a strange, exciting repression. The why of it is completely beyond me.

LOL@ lewis.

It has been my observation and experience that those who vigorously expound censorship do so because they possess a guilty conscience.

Ironically, this piece of "trailer trash in silver spandex" has always been monogamous and I do not smoke, drink, or do drugs.

The human condition is truly absurd.

The decision to close the thread was based on the consensus of the site team. We try to avoid actions such as this but there are occasions when intervention is required. When complaints, or ongoing vulgarity are encountered, we review the conditions and act according to the site rules. We take into account the interest of our members (within reason), but when threads get off track and beyond the limits of what one would consider a typical family environment, we act accordingly. We attempt to maintain a sense of humor about topics posted here as this is a diverse membership, but there is a limit.

As for the references to censorship. Please refer to the Community Rules which are part of the TOS you agree to abide by when you sign up here.

I didn't really post to it, but it did seem very very popular. It seems that popularity would account for something:-) But it is privately owned so the moral code those owners push must be abided by regardless if some people find it to to be censorship.

I believe, being one of the two last contributors to the last 4 posts to the thread, that it was my fault the thread was torpedoed. I am soooooo sorry. I thought I was contributing to the Airstream experience of enjoyment during the off season. It may have been the picture I pasted to support my opinion on the si&^&^* subject?

It was fun, and I hope all who contributed and enjoyed the thread, voice their opinion about its closure.

I see it has shrunk another page today.
Maybe there is a limit of 50 pages/thread
