    hello all, I'm another escapee :) who got tired of posts getting moved to OMNI just when they were getting interesting (not in a bad way tho).

    Plus the censorship of people's names in the posts, even when they were public figures and had no hope of anonymity.

    I believe in the Constitution and free speech, and hate to see that right (among others) squelched, be it by TSA/airport LEOs or by internet monitors.

    Welcome!

    I agree re: free speech and it being squelched in favor of poor modding and/or protecting the guilty. Glad you found your way here.

    Bolding mine: I agree 100%. That's exactly what the mods at FT are doing! TSOs are ultra sensitive about revealing anything publicly from "SSI" to their names and/or images, prompting their "unofficial* ( ::smirk emoticon:: ) ban on photography. I find it ironic that the traveling public is supposed to be OK with one of them viewing our naked image, but it is not OK for us to video record or photograph them doing their job, which is performed in a public place.

    Welcome aboard! No need to worry about threads being locked over here, if some get into a bit of heated discussion about TSA... :)

    Welcome, it's great to have you. I'm sure you'll find this group more attuned to your views and best of all there's no OMNI or banished discussions.
