Bio martens misses the conversations that were at one time fairly common on Gocomics. She wishes the moderators would have looked at the kind of analyses that the Guardian did to try to insure that real exchanges were not prevented but only that certain behaviors aimed at silencing opinions or harassing were blocked. She has sent them links to relevant studies, but to no avail. They have a "my way or the highway" approach. "One strike you're out" is the way they replied to michael_wme. And sometimes there hasn't even been a reasonable strike! Her complaint is not restricted to only those of her political persuasion. She misses churchillwasright, Mskemble, Mhic Dhu Ghaill, joadtom and others on the Right as well as her friends DrCanuck, Parker, ReasonsVentriloquist, the trustedmechanic and others on the Left.
