    I will be leaving this group because I do not support websites that censor my text?

    @a1machinista1
    I meant please clarify the incident you speak of where you were censored. I for one appreciate TMC moderators for keeping profanity, name calling, snippiness, etc out of the discussions. It makes for a more adult forum.

    See post #7 in the above thread I linked. Seems this person is unhappy they can’t use the F word.

    I knew it.

    *sugar*.

    OK, the truth is that TMC has a secret AI designed to increase activity. Using an advanced text processing neural net, it determines your personality type and responds accordingly. Fake likes for fragile egos seeking validation, fake posts with point-by-point response for basement geniuses with too much time on their hands, fake attacks on FUDsters and shorts for TSLA bulls, and censorship for self-righteous, attention-seeking, empty-threatening posters who'll never, ever just **** off like they say they will.

    Uh....

    Because they own the site and we, patrons, are here because we find value in the site.

    Regarding permissible content, it's up to the moderators to determine what is appropriate and what is not. It is up to the patrons to decide if they can abide with those decisions. If they can't, they are free to seek other sites with different rules.

    I have had a few of my POSTS (I text my kids, I post on this forum) censored and even 1 or 2 removed altogether. Whether I agree with the action is irrelevant because I DON'T OWN THE SITE AND AGREED TO FOLLOW THE RULES WHEN I SIGNED UP.

    Pretty simple really.

    Does that dictionary also say that statements should end with a question mark?

    Disagree!

    An advanced intelligence that knew how to satisfy me would have delivered my car already.

    (Though... if it really wanted to increase my post count, maybe it would delay my delivery indefinitely to make more time for griping?)

    If you want to see censorship go to the Tesla forums. I’ve posted a couple of (what I thought were funny) replies and they were not posted. This has happened a few times, and there was nothing wrong with the forum at the time. I’ve never used swear words there or denigrated another poster.
