So this is a conspiracy site, let's explore the first conspiracy... who is behind it. Now we all now axolotl_peyotl - he's the music maker. The man who bans those who disagrees and then decries censorship. But there's someone new here, someone unfamiliar. Doggos.

Now, this is a forum for free thinkers. It's not political. It's free from the agendas of reddit. Now we can really ask the tough questions.

So let's ask the tough question: Why is it now being moderated by a moderator of ?

We're all conspiracy theorists, we're all critical thinkers. So here's some critical thinking for you: Why are we handing the keys over to a partisan?

Perfectly valid concern. I am responsible for the development of all the Win sites, so naturally I was a moderator here before release, and simply have not yet removed myself. Axo is still the top mod here.

What is the software you used to make this site?

Ok, if you're the technical muscle behind the operation - and since you believe that censorship is wrong, I'll make a deal wiht you. If I provide evidence directly to you that axolotl has been censoring and banning people on /r/conspiracy simply for disagreeing with him, you remove axolotl as a mod from this forum. Deal?

I believe censorship is wrong, and I very strongly support freedom of speech (even though I don't particularly utilize it).

I don't think that banning people for disagreeing is good for the health of a community, but it's also not a platform's place to create or enforce rules for communities.

Unless a Win community permits posting illegal content (such as illegal porn), we won't take any action.

Removing someone as a moderator is not a breach of free speech. We regularly allow far lefties take over our communities because we are too nice to remove them as figures of authority.

So you've told us you and axo set up this forum, you've told us that you don't think that there should be any banning, but you're perfectly fine with axo - the person you partnered with to set up this platform, banning people for disagreeing with him?

I don't believe the platform (in this case it's "Win", which hosts a number of different communities) should be making any decisions like that.

banning people for disagreeing with him?

Reddit is a battleground...everyone we've banned at /r/conspiracy broke the rules there. I wish we didn't have to have those rules but it's necessary when dealing with a shithole site like reddit.

We don't have the same rules're not going to be banned for disagreeing with anyone.
