What is c99?
C99 is censoring! I'm leaving!
C99 wont censor! I'm leaving!
Welcome to my world.
Every day I bite my tongue and suppress my biases for the common good of this site. A site owners words can become gospel. I don't want that. I try to remain as neutral as possible.
Just a few short weeks ago there was a huge clamor on this site over media censorship and how corporations are doing the governments first amendment's dirty work. No fucking censorship was the war cry. It was the hill folks were willing to die on. It was very contentious and heated. I have no doubt folks left c99 because of it.
I now hear subtle pleas for censorship here at c99, and some that are not so subtle. Is censorship that subjective? Censorship for thee but not for me? I have no doubt people will leave over that as well.
Where does that leave c99?
In a world of fear, uncertainty and doubt, I hold these truths self evident:
I remember the original premise of this site. That is; everyone should be able to voice their opinions, short of insulting other users.
No one knows what the future will bring, no one. Not even science. Predictions can be made but no one knows for sure. No one.
Covid has proven to be the most valuable tool in the arsenal of those that wish to divide us.
