So I didnt post back for a while, but I’ve been a long time lurker on this site and what is going on with censorship on here? I noticed a members post disappeared from the “places to get laid” thread here. only reason I noticed is because his thread is still in other members quotes!

for a travel site this is shameful, travel is all about breaking down boundaries and moving past things like censorship which divide us.

im ashamed by what this site has done.

The “get laid” thread is still there.
One post was removed, and yes, you can read what was deleted in the quotes of other posters.
I agree that travel is about breaking down boundaries.
But using a phrase like the one that was deleted will surely build barriers rather than understanding and friendship.
“Moving past censorship” is all very well but a phrase like that is rather divisive to say the least.
If you are a longtime lurker, then you know that the Pub is the place for more controversial topics, language, etc.
BTW
There really are no “new mods” here. Everyone who mods is a longtime Eurotrip member.

Evidently not, it was moved to the pub and the links in the original forum don’t work.

Short of anything illegal, we don’t really care what is posted in the pub.  That’s the whole point so as to keep some sort of order in the travel forums.  So yes, we censor offensive (and more importantly off-topic) posts in areas specific to European Travel.  I mean, come one, did those remarks really have anything at all to do with european travel?

We are a community and just like every community, progressive or otherwise, we have rules.
