Os, it is here.

But now I looked at it again, it is gone! So Larry must have removed it.

I don't see that in the F.A.C.T.net Forum Rules
.. Maybe they removed it. I would have, so that's my guess. <snip>
Oh yeah, I began looking at that link recently. I believe you saw it. Something like that would draw criticism. Maybe they did put it on there and then think better of it, but it's not a bad idea in my mind. I might have done it had I been them.
Here's why I don't fault their tightening up over there:
The cult folks who were cyberstalking me constantly employed multiple sockpuppets and disrupted entire boards. They skewed all the polls, and made it impossible for folk to discuss what they were there to talk about because it was conflicting with the PR they were spouting. They do it over here too, and I know if it happened on a lot of boards I visit, the people doing it would be banned. Toney is an example of someone who made a career out of disruption, and his contingent and possible sockpuppets still survive over here carrying on that tradition in a less blatant manner.
Trolls create a drain on the admins who generally receive multiple complaints FROM THE SOCKPUPPETS that their "freedom of speech" is being violated. Oddly, the innocent posters are usually not the ones complaining to the admin, but the trolls who enjoy twisting words, events, posting inflammatory statements then altering them or removing them, that kind of thing. Making absurd allegations against other posters to put them on the defensive. Making illogical allegations to stir up controversy about innocent people, like the allegation that asking for donations indicates ulterior motives or other nefarious purpose.
The trolls on this board and Factnet come like a swarm of bees, they have a disruptive agenda, and they should be penalized in some way for disruption. Here, there is a free exchange policy which asks the members not to feed the trolls. It is different at Factnet.
Factnet says it wants to be a supportive climate for ex cult members to join into, and when someone is being backhandedly called a "loser, whiner, baby" like happens on this FREE SPEECH BOARD, people who have been violated are being re-violated. Factnet has a right to make their board a place where antagonism and passive aggression against ex cult members is forbidden. It also has a right to ban cult PR agents and propagandists.
I do not understand all the whining from folks who are here making "sour grapes" statements such as, "That board is bullshit but I never post there anyhow" when they did post there before the IP's were shown (done to prevent sockpuppet abuse no doubt). Undoubtedly, the biggest critics of the Factnet policy are going to be those who were abusing their welcome.
Which is kinda typical for trolls.
