It works like this: The Internet is full of AssHats, D-Bags, and Trolls (ADTs henceforth). RealLife is also full of these creatures, but the internet seems to bring out the worst in many people.  And since this isn’t some huge, commercial site, I’m not interested in entertaining the moronic masses.  If you want stupidity in your comments feel free to visit Youtube.  While I’m usually open to discussion, debate, and different opinions and perspectives, I tend to have a low tolerance for flat-out ADTs and their penchant for dragging other users into Internet pissing contests.  With that being said, I ask that you be mindful in your postings, and take the time to read fully and research a bit on your own before making hard accusations of silly questions. 

Censorship  is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient to the general body of people as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body. – It is alive here and will be instilled as seen fit for the sake of promoting the site’s well being.
