Two weeks ago I participated in a debate on abortion. In that debate, I posted photos and aborted children. This drummed up some protest from people about whether the photos were necessary or in poor form.

I recently searched my username in the search bar and stumbled upon a forum by this title " Justin.graves is mentally disturbed." Upon clicking on that forum, I found that is was deleted.

I would like to request of the moderators and Airmax that this forum be uncensored. I was allowed to use my photos, wand this user should be allowed to voice his opinion, even if it is defamatory. I am not offended nor am I insulted by this forum topic and would have been more than happy to participate in a discussion.

Please stop censoring the thread.

This type of thing will usually be deleted regardless of whether or not the member it's directed towards consents to it. The discussion described is fine, but the thread title and several of the initial posts were not appropriate.

Feel free to start a new thread about the substance of this (whether the photos are appropriate or not), but thread titles and threads on subjects generally for the purpose of denigrating another member will usually be deleted.

I didn't have a problem with people criticizing your use of the photos or questioning your judgement for it, but many of the posts weren't substantive and were pretty much encouraging the harassment of members, and naturally the title of the thread itself was inappropriate. It got reported several times, was evaluated, and ultimately deleted. Feel free to disagree and to restart the thread on the subject of your mental well-being based on your views and approach to abortion in a substantive manner that is not abusive to another member.

While I don't think threads about insulting people should be here, something like an image of aborted babies is okay in the appropriate thread. If it's about abortion, what did you expect... This is a debate site, and debates are going to involve sensitive issues and sometime you don't want to see them.

I don't think they really censor pictures and sensitive things if it's relevant to the debate/thread, although I haven't tried to find out.

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
