Did I say censorship? I mean "moderation" ... maybe you'd rather we all sit back and be content with the environment that's been created here, but I personally find so much else here VERY welcoming and helpful that I felt compelled to voice my concern ... which may very well be quelled before others are given the opportunity to either agree or disagree ... because that's what happens here.
But I'm hoping that the opposite happens and this conversation is at least allowed to ring out and others given the opportunity to respond. Maybe there's something that I'm missing or simply misunderstand. Maybe it's a cultural thing - there is a little history between the US and the UK ... it sort of centers on this very topic. And although this is essentially an international community, I see regular signs of this site being born and bred from the UK.
One final thing - I'd like to raise one concrete example from the recent past. There was a news release that mentioned future sets that have yet to be officially announced. LEGO requested that the site remove the material posted, which Brickset respectfully complied with. Then in a move I've NEVER seen in the 19 years I've been on the internet (yes, kids... we had things like usenet and irc back in the day) EVERY SINGLE MENTION of not only the proper set names, but any word that comprised the set was stricken from existence. Most of the time without any other indication that the post was modified!!! Words cannot even begin to express how bewildered I am that Huw let's that go on. Absolutely, 100% bewildered. But it does - and perhaps that's the culture that is desired here - but for a forum comprised mostly of AFOL's (I'm pretty sure ADULT is in there somewhere) I see A LOT of censorship going on. I mean "moderation."
