Status updates removed

Recommended Posts

There was a status update today about Youtube removing channels and discussion about Internet censorship.
I don't see it no more.

It was removed because it's politically-motivated. YouTube removed QAnon-related channels/videos and other conspiracy garbage spreading misinformation.  Good on them.

Status updates are removed, so other people don't have to see them.

People who feel compelled to share their religious and/or political beliefs with everyone here, which is against the rules.

Agreed. There are many, many other places where such things can be discussed.

BTW: Did the hidden forum get removed?

It is neutral but still political related. Hard to draw any other line.

I don't care if someone states that they voted, but if you want to espouse your personal political beliefs (such as which candidate you are voting for), that goes over the line.  If that bothers you that much, well, I'm sorry.

I didn't say who i was voting for,
If i remember correct , i asked why is every celeb telling me to vote for a certain person
I didn't even get a warning and none of the other mods removed it when they seen the update
Took almost a day to get removed

Because anyone paying attention knows who the celebrities are asking people to vote for (Biden), and your status update was clearly designed to get other people to respond to it since obviously you don't agree with those celebrity opinions. As for why it took so long to remove, moderators and myself are not hovering over the status updates to nuke any that break the rules.

This is what the Forum Guidelines have to say about status updates,

 

Also, do not use Status updates to espouse your political and/or religious views.

 

Stating that you voted is not a political view.

Some people would call that a political statement. ;)

Maybe you could revert that and make it read only. Just for historical reasons.

I can appreciate that, but unfortunately when the forum was fairly young, discussions on politics and religion (mostly politics) would almost always become heated and people would get angry with one another.  It was bad enough that at one point I walled off the "Politics & Religion" forum and far fewer people had access to it at that point.  It's mostly been dead, and with the current political climate, I decided to close it off completely.

 

AtariAge is primarily focused around discussions of video games, which should be a subject everyone can talk about with a jovial tone, at least most of the time.  Also, I (and I'm sure most others) really don't want to know the political and religious leanings of individual members.  Again, if someone says they voted, fine, and that is right on the line.  Beyond that, I don't really want to see it here.  Same goes for religious posts, but those are much less often an issue, thankfully.

For a good reason. Such discussions get heated and personal extremely fast. Many people are unable to accept loosing an argument.
