Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

Hmm, I'm clearly missing something here, having said that, I've only been on the forum for 1 day.
What make one a gun nut. I do carry guns and for a Brit, that is no easy task.
However I do comply to the countries regs and sign them in or bond them on the boat. But I have had to use then on two occasions while on passage!

Welcome to SailNet.

PRWG is a sub-forum of the Off Topic forum. It's where moderators attempt to keep all politics, religion, war and government topics as those discussions can get heated and nasty. The General Sailing forum is really just for...sailing.

http://www.sailnet.com/forums/politi...ar-government/

Sometimes, as in threads such as this, it is a fine line, but we moderators are human and try our best. If one group is ok with a decision, another group will demand that we do something opposing it. The posts in question were not deleted, just moved, and not without discussion between us.

Jerry, just to be very clear about this ..... there has been no censorship. All that happened yesterday was that I split the thread into two, one (I confess poorly named but see below) over in PRWG the other still in General Interest Sailing Related. No posts were deleted and I didn't do any editing. The simple reality is that discussions that in any way relate to guns, gun control laws, second amendment rights blah blah blah will always end up in PRWG, at least while I am still a SailNet moderator.

ref the name ... mea culpa, it was I admit inappropriate, even though it accords with my personal viewpoint.

Definitely censorship.

You are censoring content by moving some content to where it won't "bother" the majority political viewpoint on firearms and cruising, as well as taking a political side in general discussion while wearing the moderator hat. A thread like this should be an appropriate enough place for both viewpoints to be able to discuss self defense while cruising.

It is what it is.

Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

The trouble with gun related threads, is they almost always end up in an argument over gun rights, etc. However, it would seem the simple introduction of protecting oneself while cruising, even if with a gun, is sailing related.

What a load of complete and utter nonsense Chris. This obsession some of you have re your supposed right to bear arms is not sailing related in any way whatsoever. Never has been, never will be. At least not under my watch.

To quote from Wikipedia, "Censorship is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, politically incorrect or inconvenient as determined by a government, media outlet or other controlling body."

Suppression being the operative word. Not one word was excised by me from a single post in the original thread, not one post has disappeared or been suppressed. It is all there, in its entirety, every post, every last word. How pray tell is that suppression ?

I do grant you that splitting the thread has resulted in you having to read though two threads instead of one and I apologise most humbly if that has been an overly onerous inconvenience for you. Indeed so gutted am I at having so egregiously offended you that I've asked one of my fellow mods to drop a quarter into your mailbox when passing. Use it with care.

Very true. Discussing the merits (or not) of protecting oneself while cruising is one thing. Debating gun rights is something different and almost never ends without name calling and other forms of disrespect.
