Part of an email message from Aj to let us know we shouldn't be expecting his post here in the future. The Motley Fool's perception appears to be that freedom of speech belongs to those (and only those) who can control it with the click of a "Delete" button. To submit to that one-sided, arbitrary rule would be to effectively allow myself to be intellectually oppressed and become their idiological slave; and that is not who I am. Am I being too dramatic? Perhaps, but similar to my predicament of fifty years ago, I find that the benefits of belonging to a community where free expression is denied fades in comparison to my independence to live and speak freely. Accordingly, rather than bowing to a masterdom of despotic authority, I walk away free and with my head held high. ~Joe To add to my reasoning, I also just received this notice from MF. This was my post of "Aj's Baby sitter". Interesting that it reached number 4 on the "Best Of" board with 45 Recs before it got pulled. I guess it may have been the fact that it was tied to Aj and his following. Maybe it would have been acceptable if the baby was nursing. No one will miss me here, as I have only post on Hurl 5-6 times. Since the main reason for me visiting this board disappears I also will save a little time bypassing the HURL.Hi there SeniorCit,We just deleted the message that you posted with the subject of "Aj's baby sitter" on 1/24/2008 12:07:19 PM.We want to make sure that you are aware of our rules.
