Why was I censored?

I recently made a comment on a mature rated comic, I quoted verbatim what one of the characters in that days comic dialogue said, other people quoted or made other comments along the same lines, but mine was erased. Why? My comment was taken directly from the last panel of yesterday’s Lizzy comic, I have a mark against me on DD for a reason I can’t understand.
Do NOT meddle in the affairs of Dragons. Because, YOU are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!

Ah. Simple, really.

The owner of the comic reported your comment to the Admins, who then erased it.

The end.

Heh. It could be worse you know. I was just recently banned from the Marvel.com forums for posting a poll about ninjas.

That's right.

NINJAS.

If only their forum rules and posting guidelines had mentioned NINJAS and NINJA posts were a bannable offense, my record would still be clean.

:(

Much like you, I even quoted the Mighty Avengers comic, where Tony Stark says “Every team needs a ninja.”

we also have rules against saying the word ninja because in the past DD was attacked by ninjas.

so anyone who says ninja will get flogging via PQ

you have been warned

I believe censorship is wrong. Censorship is harmful to children and society in general. Children should be taught by responsible adults to question what they see and hear and read. They should be encouraged to gain knowledge of the world around them and have things explained in an age appropriate and impartial way so as to make their own decisions about their lives when they reach adulthood.
As for censoring material intended for adults…it's simply an insult to ones intelligence and an assumption that the wider society is morally ambivalent and easily
led. Which is simply ludicrous. We have more guardians of morality right now than we have ever had before, and they have louder voices, but to censor them would be simply uncivilised. Without free speech society crumbles and revolutions begin.

the author controls the comments
if an author wants a comment muted he can do so himself/herself

there is no mark against you if you get your comment erased or muted unless the comment is a deliberate insult

Author's report comments for different reasons. Here are a couple.

1 Readers being rude/sniping
2 Readers spamming comments on the page
3 Readers giving away some plot line that the author doesn't want to reveal
4 Readers just giving 5's, no comments (Which some think is a way for someone advertises THEMSELVES rather than reading the actual comic)
5 Readers making silly comments that the author doesn't want
6 The author wants the comic to be nothing more than a gushing fan comment area, with no crits whatsoever


1 & 2 penalize readers. 3, 4, 5, & 6 don't.

The Moderators at Marvel.com believe all the same things you do. EXCEPT WHEN YOU POST ABOUT NINJAS! They've now tried to ban my IP three times. The latest time was for posting a poll about whether or not Echo, the most ninja-like character on the team, should have her own appreciation thread, like all the other appreciation threads in the Avengers forum. That's how much they hate ninjas and are out to quelch Ninja-Speech.

The crazist part of it all is, I couldn't make something this funny up if I tried! Truth sometimes is stranger than fiction.

Don't be surprised if The World's Friendliest Ninjas do indeed make an appearance in Superchum sometime before Christmas.

Censorship should be age appropriate. the underlying flaw in anyone's notion that you can introduce ANY subject matter to a child as long as it is “age appropriate” is that they don't consider cognitive development. The frontal lob of the brain does not finish developing unitl the subject is in their 20's early 20's for girls, late 20's for boys. The frontal lob is our judgement center, conscience, inner voice that gives us self-control. That's why teens do stupid things, kids touch hot burners when told not to, etc. They lack the cognitive ability to make a sound judgment or comprehend certain information no matter how “age appropriate” so person trys to make it.

Now ninjas that's a different matter, it could be a case of political correctness (root of all evil) maybe marvel feels ninja is slanderous to asian americans or some other BS idea. I'd take this issue up with Ask a Ninja, he could probably kill whoever booted you from the marvel forums, course there is a form to fill out!

Or saftey ninja. me and my freind were saftey ninjas one day. They were giving out these free luminous wriststraps at school (You know, the ones that are like rulers and you hit your wrist with them and they curl round) and we put 'em round our heads. We came up with the idea for luminous kunai, but sadly, Only ninjas for a daylol.

anyway, wouldn't want to derail this thread:
Why not PQ the author and ask him?

No, don't do that. Comments are deleted on a no questions asked policy.

…Apparently.

Seriously though, it's no big deal. Unless your comment was offensive or spammy or something. If not, it doesn't really matter. The author either didn't want it on his/her page or by accident, deleted it. Let it go man. :)
Please, please, you give me too little credit.

This is a possibility, I once got a PQ and accidentally clicked “Report” when I mean to click “write back”

I've done that.

To my own comments.


I figure, there's lots of places to spout off on here, that if an artist wants to ban comments, step off.

Another reason comments get censored is by mistake…I'm not sure if the system has changed or not but I remember a few times I would accidentally click report bad comment and it was done with, whether or not I really wanted to or not. An admin may delete the comment afterwards, not knowing it was a mistake (or not, I'm not really sure). Point is, I've done it more than once…
