This is atually my second sub default . I guess you would be for taking away peoples rights if your for censorship. You are such a nice guy. a Real Role Model.
Why are the people who invoke their rights so often the ones who understand their rights the least?
Alla is private property. You have no right to expression here, any more than I have a right to stand beside you in your mom's basement and sing old KISS songs in your ear while you play. You're a guest here, and can do only what the site's owners and delegated administrators allow. That said, they're not going to ban you; the karma system is "working as intended."
Or the 'Ignore' feature?
Well, he specifically asked for an "auto-mute" for habitual sub-d posters, and the karma filter does a better job of doing that automatically than the manual "ignore" feature does. I liked it better when filtered content was completely invisible, though. Now, I'm always tempted to take a look and see what was so unpopular.
