Garrett --

The number one rule at JavaRanch, the one everyone agrees to when they register, is "Be Nice." The thread you point to contained a number of examples of folks violating that rule, and therefore it has been removed. I hope we won't see any future discussions degenerate to that point.

It looks like that thread got off track and no longer served a purpose.
In theory we could have a meta-discussion about why the thread was considered off track and why it has gone away, but my suggestion is that the contributors spend their time doing more productive things.

Hi. Nice to meet you. I am the censor king on this site. Freedom of the press belongs to those that own one and all that.

I think the level of censorship we do makes for an excellent site. I think any site worth visiting practices some level of censorship (otherwise they would be loaded to the gills with porn and spam). Some sites are a little heavier on the delete button than others. JavaRanch is on the heavy end of the delete spectrum. Some people are offended by this much censorship - so it's a good thing there are lots of other sites on the internet to visit.
