message to unleashed moderators and commenters

.. censorship is ...

  .. un- & anti-democratic ...

    .. censors are democracy-criminals


Free speech is an essential part of democracy; only so may we exchange facts and opinions - obvious.

Censorship - of fair comment - happens far too often on unleashed; just once is already damnable. So, message to unleashed moderators: Kindly stop censoring fair comment.

Message to unleashed commenters: IF you post a fair comment to unleashed AND it is censored, THEN you may post your comment here as a comment; if I judge it as 'fair comment' then I will publish it.

A good collection of censored comments may expose the bias of the censoring moderators, and provide evidence to support more serious actions, see below.

(*Unfair* comment would be abuse, extreme ad-homs or silly language, it's just common sense and no one needs it.)

 .. specific requirements and recommendations regarding comments to Unleashed:
  "Comments which the ABC considers to be abusive, defamatory, discriminatory or off-topic, or otherwise unlawful, will not be published." 

Comments based on, and/or responding to already published comments should be allowed, also with some tolerance - that'd only be fair = normal democratic conversation.

In any case, a good next step against unfair AusBC censorship is to take complaint(s) to your local Federal MP.

Another possible next step would be the appropriate ombudsman or state-sponsored legal aid.

All fair comment welcome here - trolls needn't bother.

PS Copies of comments posted to unleashed, never to be seen again = censored, submitted here as a comment should include a) the post-point, b) the unl-thread "name" or number, and c) the approximate comment posting-time.

i.e. Re: Unbeliever@09Jun'11,3:15:56pm on "Prohibiting the use of nuclear weapons," censored comment posted 10Jun'11,3:51am.


  1. If you posted for every blog means your comments already displaying means moderator never publish your comments. If deleted your comments and it will be saved on spam folder. So if you post your comments means give some topic related comments to that blog.

  2. Thank you for your interest, Website Hosting India.

    There are three part-topics here:

    1. Blogger auto-spam - IF a blog is moderated, THEN the publish-decision should be left wholly to the author; *neither* Google, nor Blogger, nor any other agency or robot need fiddle. However, that is not my complaint here.

    Funnily enough, WeHoIn, your comment was put in my spam-folder by Blogger auto-spam - IMHO, none of their eff'n business. (On the other hand, if your comment was made only to publicise your business, then your comment would rightly belong in the bin; I've extended you 'the benefit of the doubt.')

    2. Comment-censorship may occur due to abusive of off-topic material; that is also not my complaint here.

    3. My specific complaint here is the deliberate censorship of topical information, by a presumably human moderator, employed by a publicly-funded 'national' broadcaster. When they censor 'fair comment,' that indicates a) their un- & anti-democratic corruption, and b) their biases, namely here pro-war, pro-US & pro-Zionist - all anti-truth & anti-justice.

    In the case of pro-US & pro-Zionist censorship, this shows treachery.

    In the case of pro-war censorship, this shows inhumanity.

    Only the truth can set us free.
