132. Again I didn't say anything of the sort
I said that I have observed an increasing number of folks entertaining such theories - even for a blush of a moment.

I found the where the criticism fell on the thread to be interesting.

The first amendment point - came at what - I admit was my speculation as to the point of the rant - was a frustration at conspiracy theories as it relates to the election - and was stating that I wasn't commenting on the theories - just noting a change in behavior when said theories are floated. But that even if I found some theories out-there and perhaps counter productive in the larger public mind - that I didn't think that it was upon me to try to censor folks from stating those theories.

Was not discussing the policies of the board (and private entities have that right) as much as the tendency of some to view the expression of these types of sentiments (the conspiracies) as something to be stifled as they "make us look bad" - and my belief that attempting to stifle - right or wrong - is futile. So perhaps I should have used the word "stifle" rather than censor.
