Text has banned words

Arggh - I just spent the last half-hour typing in some nice, peaceful, sexy piece on intimacy - until I hit the "Add" button, and discovered one of the, uh, "improvements" made in my non-posting absence. Apparently, somewhere I used a "banned" word - though I don't know what it might've been.

And the sad part is just throws it all away, all of it -whoosh!- lost.

Gee - wonder why so many have signed off their blogs, saying they couldn't take it.

I'm sure AdultFriendFinder, and the readers here, couldn't care less if I were to stop posting - but if they want others to contribute here, they need to put as much effort into protecting our work as they do into censoring it. If you want to scan for a 'dirty word', fine, but show me what it is, and mostly, don't throw away my writing, let me edit the motherf&*#ing thing, ok?!

My mood? Was "mellow", now "frustrated", and "pissed off"

The definition for the word "fascism" includes the component of censorship. The idea and belief that everyone will read the fine print (whether told to or not) when signing up to these places is unreasonable, and having knowledge that a significant portion of those people will not read the fine prints is a practice of deception by putting pertinent information of that type in the fine print. The defintion of "deception" is "a ruse, a trick, a misleading falsehood" and synonyms include "cheat, betrayal, deceit, and treachery". Why did I mention the semantics? I mentioned the defintions because common practice in this society by business is to redefine and prefabricate definitions for existing ideas in order to suit their own selfish whims, and to relieve themselves of liability for their actions. Unfortunately, the state(s) have turned a blind eye to this practice, and the consumer and peoples of the state(s) suffer in return. The protective barrier follows suit in the form of an allegory of sorts that I like to use from time to time:

"First time, damn them.
Second time, damn me."

Freedom is relative only to those constraints that provide and are provided, and neither is equally defined for the other.

I hate it too. There's not much point to inviting adults to a place if you aren't going to treat them like adults.
