Recently, Wallstreeatheist created a thread called, "Religious dumbfvcks thread" Where people posts religious people who are idiots there.

Today I noticed it was gone and the page http://www.debate.org...
gets an error.

Is censorship becoming a part of DDO?

I hope not.

if somebody creates threads just to piss off people then its probably going to be deleted since it is more likely to spark a flame war.... And seeing as how the Weekly Stupid still is allowed to air, only the most incendiary of threads are even at risk of being deleted.

Also it might have been because of something said in the thread and not the thread itself

DDO has a rich history of censorship.

DDO has always been moderated. The moderating has slacked off in recent months, so that many forum threads are full of personal insults.

Joining the site is voluntary, and each member agrees to obey a set rules that includes civil behavior. Civil behavior is part of debate because it helps focus on the facts and arguments rather on the antics of the participants. Abusive behavior scares off people who want to be civil, and encourages immature types who want to rant. I know of good people who left the site because they didn't want to cope with the abuse.

The ultimate payoff for unlimited bad behavior is that the site loses it's distinction from facebook and the rest of the web, where unchecked ranting prevails. No need to go to a debate site when trading abuse is readily available elsewhere. It will also get the site banned from high schools, where it is of use to debaters.

Juggle doesn't seem to be interested in the debate aspect of the site, killing the leaderboord, making challenges nearly impossible to identify, and making none of the needed improvements in the debate aspect of the site. It's now all about having more places for unrestrained ranting. It's disappointing.

What Roy said.

Quite frankly, if you're just going to use the site to use a thread post to insult another user, it's pointless, a waste of time, and, just like on every other moderated site, the post would be deleted.

What Roy said.

You have no idea how good we have it here. On most sites, some of ours views on subjects alone would bring the ban hammer on us. The fact that only the most inflammatory and stupid of threads get deleted is telling.

It wasn't for angering people, though; from my understanding, it was simply a thread to post religious morons: people even religious people can hate. Fred Phelps, Terry Jones, etc.
