    My concern with Wikileaks

    I am going to argue that squashing dissenting voices is as detrimental to a healthy society as burning books and corporate sponsored advertising that poses as "news." It matters not one whit whether you like or dislike what wikileaks publishes. All that matters is that if there are facts that should be known that influence policy decisions that are being denied to the people who would be affected by those policies, this site should be protected, just like any 4th estate entity. Otherwise, we would do stupid things like invade a country based on a lie, promote tax cuts as healthy when they would be seriously detrimental to economic health, or misrepresent major cultural reforms because they would adversely affect a tiny minority who would gain economically from halting the reform.

    Or do we like the lies, exploitation and unfairness of asymmetrical information?

    Blogs are the only part of this website where we allow political discussions.

    We feel the blogs are physically separate from the forums and usually harder conversations do not carry back to the forum discussions.

    We ask all our members to read the Blogs selectively.

    Good stuff iceshack149.

    And even if any of the information is true, we don't have a divine right to the information.

    It surprises me just how much it seems the world's governments are incapable of managing / restraining the internet. Oh I am not necessarily calling for restraint but some of the stuff is just downright dangerous (e.g. wikileaks), at best unhelpful, and corrupting.

    Hi CS. Who Dat!
    Sure the Saints are the one common denominator of BnG' members. But the website has all stuff Saints and more - Checkout the blog categorization..... that includes "News" and Politics. I don't go in that door if the thread title is unpalatable.

    Couldn't agree more. I continue to be amazed at what people can manage to convince themselves of. How is this perceived by ANY one as a positive is quite frankly beyond me. This tool should swing from the highest tree.

    My concern with Wikileaks

    WikiLeaks is a quagmire and is almost as bad as terrorist, or eventually maybe worse. It's a huge security risk and can get our soldiers, agents and officials killed.

    It needs to be stopped because the next move is to lock down the internet, which is the first step toward hardcore censorship.

    Yeah. Dumb joke here, about an e-mail sent at 4:26 in the morning... I didn't realize until later that I had posted it at 4:50.

    LOL...LOVE the Greyhound line!

    You do have alternatives though, and the bus isn't so bad really, but as soon as somebody blows one up the bus terminal will likely feature increased/enhanced security too.

    All in good discussion Cash. Have a great Turkey day!

    and an apology to you to Mark, and you probably deserve one as well saintfan... I'm going through a tough time trying to move into a new place right now and to say i'm a little jumpy would be an understatement.
