How do you feel about censorship on this site? Do you think it's biased?
I recently had a post and a question removed because apparently it was indecent and nonesense. The image was of a woman breastfeeding her child and was in response to a full frontal nude shot of a woman with her minge and titties out. Personally I find it deplorable that a pornographic image had been up all day long but I post a photo of a breast that's got a baby on it, as it was designed to have, gets removed before it. I also think it’s pretty shameful of GaG to remove my question multiple times and claim I am trolling. I didn’t contravene any of your guidelines you just didn’t like my question so pretended it didn’t meet the rules.
My question is at the top, I'm not trolling and I don't particularly want to get into an ethical and moral debate about whether you think breastfeeding is right or wrong. So it isn't antagonistic either.
Thoughts about selective censorship and questions being removed because of mods apparent personal dislike of a subject?
My response detailing why my question was removed:
Your Question has been removed because it was irrelevant, didn't contain enough details, and/or was considered trolling. Posts should contain engaging information and a specific question that members can answer. Please post relevant and appropriate content (and no trolling) to keep GirlsAskGuys both fun and helpful to our visitors. Please be more considerate with your future posts. Thank you for your understanding.
I can understand your frustration, but there are a set of guidelines intended to ensure no one is offended when browsing through this website. I did not come across your removed post but there are several reasons it could have been removed. Things such as: Offensive – Certain individuals may have found that post offensive and consequently reported it as such.
No Sexuality Topic - All sexuality related Questions must be in a sexuality topic. I am unsure as to whether you followed this, but that is another potential reason as to why your post was removed.
Explicit – The post contains sexually explicit details that are considered poor quality content. Another possible reason.
Duplicate – If you've already posted a particular Question/Take, please do not post it again as it will be removed.
Just a few reasons. I am not giving anything concrete or on behalf of the moderation team, this is just a personal observation with regards to this question and the Guidelines. I am sure you know where to find them. If not they are located here: "http://www.girlsaskguys.com/faq/moderators" under the title "Why would a Moderator hide a post? What are the posting guidelines?"
It is actually somewhat odd, because I think you have to be at least a super mod to remove things, normal mods can just hide. One time I got a question that was "taken down temporarily for analysis from the admins" and I was like wtf that has never happened before. That question actually stayed up.
Things get removed if enough people report it, I think. The basis for what qualifies as invalid content in my opinion is pretty arbitrary, so sometimes I'm a bit disappointed by what mods do remove, and what they don't.
You probably need to make your point a bit more straight to the point next time, I guess.
Yes this site is biased to certain questions/ photo images i feel it's not right that one girl had picture of her ass/ pussy was up over close to 2 hours nothing done oh i made a MyTake it was taken down cause i was told it was asking form and question but hell if you look there is more of them MyTake and yes they are asking form and could be question.. I think it's judgmental to take down pictures of a mother breast feeding and i wish people would stop thinking that breast feeding is deemed inappropriate my cousins wife breast feed my little cousin and no one made a big issue out of it i think people need stop making something out of it.
Maybe the moderators believe that if they let one nude picture on here then everyone will start uploading them and expect that they won't be deleted. The fact that it was a baby s*cking a breast doesn't change that the photo had a nude breast.
Biggest reason I am seldom on this site any longer is due to situations such as yours. You have certainly hit the nail directly on the head as you describe those that determine what posts stay and what posts are removed. With this new format I am not even sure if you can determine which of the worms are the mods any longer. Don't expect any better from the trolls who actually run this site.
