|> The number of posts to almost all of SI's boards has fallen precipitously since its heyday. It's difficult to understand why it didn't realize that censoring discussion would lead to discussion going elsewhere.|
Do any other forums on the Internet besides SI give thread ban power to the the user who created it?
I'm very curious about this since I don't know any that do. I don't use SeekingAlpha, Stocktwits, etc. so I wouldn't know.
All the ones I know have many moderators to censor content, but they're at an admin level above the users.
Since Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and its "hands off" approach for holding companies liable for the content their users produce is getting a hard look now by Congress, it may not be long before SI and other places that allow people to abuse each other like they do here won't be allowed at all.
