This Saddens Me....

Some of our greatest members have been "shut up" by way of their stories being taken down, flagged and or complained about based on no truth at all!! This place was to be a spot for free sharing. Experience Project used to a place to go and share your thoughts and feelings without being told your feelings are wrong or too bold.But apparently my impression was wrong. Experience Project, while under the guise of protecting other members from harassment, is on the other hand telling others that your opinions are not fair to state in a free manner such as a story. Stating thoughts without revealing another members name is fair and not harassment. These stories I have seen are written within the rules set forth for members of this place and do not harass at all. I wish that EP and the powers that be would listen up and understand that it is NOT FAIR to apply harassment to these stories. They are written to express thoughts all while adhering to all the rules set in stone on EP. Harassment is defined as "a course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such a person and serves no legitimate purpose". But when no names are used to describe the person being spoken about then it IS NOT HARASSMENT.  Censorship is the suppression of speech......and that is what is going on here!

Hear the voices of people being censored based on no legitimate definition of the word harassment!

They are wearing the members down. We're still around. Trust me, everyone is still fighting with what's left of what we got but they sure are fighting dirty. Abuse of power maybe? It's not fair that they make it our problem to fix but end up making questionable moves like this? It's probably just an "image" thing. It's not about breaking the rule but if a story actually depicts EP in a bad light. There are no rules but I am sure that's a big factor in stories they get rid of.

Well I hope that the smart people of this site wake up and refuse to be censored

why don't they bother to censor freaks that want to be raped repeatedly, for example? what good purpose does garbage stories like that serve? great post indeed, meg.

Great post! =)
