On reading this post on Independence Home I posted a comment that stated the content of that post was 'a load of spheroids" and referred them to my post here.
If one claims to be 'libertarian' then surely one of the basic concepts of that creed should be that of free speech, however disliked the opinion may be. In defense of that statement I can but quote Voltaire: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it".
The moderators of Independence Home may well be 'busy' however it has to be asked whether moderators should be 'monitoring' their sites if moderation is in force. Having posted my comment an hour ago, I believe it reasonable to expect that it should be visible.
Or perhaps Independence Home is like Conservative Home - censoring free speech? Or, God forbid, Tim Montgomerie is moonlighting as a moderator on Independence Home?
