    I don't like censorship and I've been the victim of it at a number of sites. Lately I've been hit here as well and it's only a matter of time before I give up on this site as well.

    I suspect I'm being singled out by the socialist lefties here who love free speech as long as that speech reflects the views of the socialist left. The truth is that is the only way for them to implement their oppressive and evil philosophy on the rest of us.

    Well even if I'm silenced here, I will continue to fight against this evil and for individual freedom. I call on the left to stand up for what they believe too and admit to their enthusiasm of socialist doctrine. Stop trying to hide from what you truly believe, speak the truth and see how many will follow you!

      It seems you blame everything on liberals.  I see quite a few conservatives posting on these threads so it could be just your choice of words on the forums or on your hubs. 

      Are you saying HP doesn't censor the left because they favor them over the right?  How in heck would this be beneficial to HP?

      LOL.  Only "socialists" censor?  I have some nice screenshots of various comments I've left on conservative's hubs.  I took the screenshots because I knew the comments would be deleted. 

      I've also been verbally attacked simply for posting an opposing view on someone's hub. 

      You just have to get over it and move on. The fact is, each person's hubs are their own.  I can censor you all I want on my own hubs, rationally or not, and there's nothing you can do about it. 

      As for the forums here, well, they're pretty inconsequential in the grand scheme.  Spend less time here and more time writing hubs and you might forget all about being 'censored'.

      Tell me Poppa, why would you care? Hubpages is a place where people come to write their whims and earn a few dollars doing it. If you want engaging conversation then go and join the forum at ABC or News dot com where your intellect can be evenly matched.

      Half of your interrogators are probably under eighteen years of age anyway here on HP.

      Cor blimey - that is the second funniest post I have seen today.

      "Singled out by the socialist lefties."

      "Fight against this evil."

      Love it - you are sooooo The Blues personified.

      Da daa da duh. big_smile

    I can't imagine, by violating the forum rules on numerous occasions, why in the world you'd EVER experience what you call "censorship."

    If you don't like censorship...why don't you buy a domain name, find a host and then you can put whatever you want on your site and no one can say a damn thing?  The people than own these sites have every right to censor what is put on them....

    Terry,

    I hope not, as Hubbers are supposed to be 18+ to have an account on Hubpages.

    1. TerryGl profile image60
      TerryGlposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Supposed to be. And, you have to be of age to have an adsense account too.

  5. gamergirl profile image58
    gamergirlposted 8 years ago

    Right - so if you encounter a Hubber who is under the age of 18, send an email to team@hubpages.com and let them handle it. smile

      I don't know where your from but we don't dob on anyone - period - in Australia. There is one thing lower then a dobber and thats a snakes guts.

      You might enjoy that, but personally, I don't. We call them low lifes, a waste of space.

        So,  do you give child molesters a free ride?  I doubt it.  Allowing underage writers is against HP policy.  But I suppose you didn't read the TOS you agreed to.

        Terry, there was a Hubber here on HubPages who was under 18.  He was an excellent writer - I think a few people suspected but didn't say anything.  Eventually he got found out and his account had to be closed.  He'd written a LOT of Hubs.

        In that case it would have been better to stop him early, rather than wait till he'd put all that work in.  Not dobbing in my book. 

        Anyway, the whole idea of "never dobbing" is ridiculous.  I assume it comes from Australia's convict past, but IMO there has to be a limit. I mean, surely you're not saying you would "never dob" on a murderer?  Where do you draw the line?

    Is this satire? Serious question btw.

      Is what satire?  The bit about notifying HubPages if someone is over 18?  No that's not satire.

    LOL Alright then, Terry - if you don't do anything about a problem, then you shouldn't gripe about the problem either.

      Gripe, where is gripe in my response. Go away will you..

    Well said!  Although I am sure there are plenty of members under the age of 18...it is not hard to enter is a birthdate that makes you old enough smile

    "Half of your interrogators are probably under eighteen years of age anyway here on HP."

    That's the gripe I'm referring to, Terry.  Sorry you feel the need to get riled about it.

      Oh, that's a gripe. Wow, I learn something new everyday. Difference is that I am not that trivial, sorry, still go away though..

    No I am not being mean at all. Gamergirl is a long time member of Hubpages. The fact is I was not having a gripe. I was simply giving a response.

    There are many who offer their services at http://www.fiverr.com/ who are more then willing to jump on board any forum and have a go.

    My response to the thread was simply not to take everything on face value, as half of those might have different agendas. As for reading the terms of service they would not apply to me as I abide by them.

      Terry,

      I am not offended by you telling me to "go away" a couple times.  I presented to you an option to solve part of your post, which did appear to be a gripe.  To me, a gripe is a minor complaint about a minor problem.  Most gripes can be easily solved with a minimum of effort.  That's all I was suggesting, was a solution to a problem that requires a minimum of effort.

      As to the rest of the thread, Poppa Blues' gripes about censorship are easily rectified by efforts only he can make, and answers only Hubpages Staff are able to give in full, unless the 'censhorship' he's speaking of is occurring in Hub comments on other Hubbers' articles, at which point he'd have to take it up with those Hubbers on a personal level.

      Either way, I hope everyone has a good day. smile
