Expelled filmmakers set up a Myspace page, put up a poll ( http://answers.polldaddy.com... ) recieved these results - and then promptly deleted the poll link off their page. Typical creationist liars and cowards. They make a film about how dissent is not allowed, and yet they're the first ones to censor anything that dissents from their little fairy story world view.

"Expelled filmmakers" are not using force, nor funded by force. It is not possible for them to censor anything. Censorship requires force.

Now why they'd be dumb enough to take a poll, I'll never know.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Then again, why they'd be dumb enough to promote intelligent design, I'll never know.

Lol.

Censorship is the suppression of speech or deletion of communicative material which may be considered objectionable, harmful or sensitive, as determined by a censor. Which they did.

I'm going to have to disagree, genuine censorship requires force imposed by someone capable of imposing it... like a government.

If a 2 year old covers his ears with his hands and starts singing "LA LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU" that is not censorship.

If someone removes content from a site they own, or simply just manage... like a myspace page... that is not censorship. There are many other outlets that a person can express what was taken off the site. This poll is a good example, it is still documented on the internet.

Genuine censorship requires the scope of power to forcefully lock down all forms of communication to suppress information. Only something like the government, or the mob, has this power.

You are aware that liberals would disagree with you here?

None of those clear headed facts matter to the PC liberal. You cover up one letter he spray painted on your church and to him, that is censorship. Like America is currently doing to their votes for Hillary.

That's right. The OP isn't really about whether it's technically censorship but to point out some pretty blatant hypocrisy. Quibbles over the definition of censorship is missing the point.
