Plenty of questions/opinions get removed when they're not offensive, explicit or antagonistic. I think this is an example of bias, GaG admins will only allow you to express questions/opinions THEY agree with, so ultimately on this website you are not entitled to your opinion. GaG is effectively a dictatorship. It's not that serious a question becuase it is of little consequence lol, I just wondered what others' take on it will be..
Do you think GaG allows freedom of speech without showing bias?

Well, this is a site with a very diverse user base so of course not everyone is going to agree with everything. We do our best to be as unbiased as possible though. However, the site guidelines encompass much more than just offensive, explicit, or antagonistic posts. There are other reasons for a post to be removed than just that. You can view our posting guidelines here. http://www.girlsaskguys.com/faq/moderators#147
Moderators simply hide posts until an admin can review them. Then, the admins make a final decision. If you feel that a post has been wrongly removed, you can always send us a message and we can review it or explain the removal in more detail. www.girlsaskguys.com/contact0
With a site that's so full of diversity, it's pretty hard to not have bias. There are so many different people here with so many different views. What you may find not offensive, may be offensive to 5 other people. It's difficult. And sometimes things that get removed by a mod will be reviewed and put back up. So just try to keep in mind that there's a lot of gray area when it comes to what's offensive/antagonistic on here.1

Yes, that is true. I think we've discovered this already.1
Not necessarily... I've gotten away with plenty of things I've said. But they have occasionally removed some of my comments but that's because I'll be in a heated argument say somethings I shouldn't have and the person that was rude to me reports me to get the last laugh.
Other wise no I could've been reported many more times but they don't do it.0
No it doesn't allow that. We all know that1
Yes, GaG is completely biased. I thought we all knew it already.0

well obviously, its a privately owned website, not a publicly owned company.1
the site rules are not the U. S. constitution. It's a privately managed website, which means they pretty much set the rules where speech is concerned. But generally, i find the admins quite lenient. Stop trying to equate GaG with your country's government system... the two are not the same1
Yes actually. Its all in the name of political correctness.2
It's biased, but the federal government says they won't arrest you/punish you for your ideas/speech. GaG is not the government and has no requirement to allow free speech and can moderate any way they wish.0
I agree totally with what you say.1
Yes and no.
It allows freedom of speech until some butt hurt whiner starts mashing the flag icon, usually for the simple reason that they don't agree with the comment and therefore feel it is their right to stifle any idea that doesn't coincide with their own.1
