Announcement: Capability of the group called censors to moderate the common stream

If you are a member of the group called "censors", then if you affix a label beginning with the special character "~" to any item, that item will be instantly marked private.  It will be visable only to members of the group who posted it. 

The censors group is by inviation only.

So if you see one of your items suddenly go private to your group, look for a censor's tag to find out why.

The special character is actually a vertical pipe | not a tilde ~ that must be prefixed on the tag name.

so is this to be a feature here?  … we never needed to actually use it … but then there was just mostly the two of us.

this is getting wiggy
maybe you should set some guidelines so that people know what kinds of things you would censure. Is it going to be known to the subscribers & clients.  Fb I think publishes some guidelines on usage. 
  • pornography?
  • someone else’s political postings?
  • shouldn’t the reasons be posted?
  • something to limit controversy?
  • Is it just going to be something you don’t like?
well, notice that this was a very old item which i ran into clening up old groups.  I think at the time we were worried about illegal pronography.   it’s also something we never really used …. except perhaps for testing.   i personally don’t like censorship … but it is a tool in the arsenal when a domian is beseiged by decay … especially in wide open groups.  i remember the Usenet days where there alsway was this threat to moderate a group or not.  I saw groups which had lively interchanges get stifeled by some hotshot moderator.   i say put this in the back room and let some domain operator reconsider it were it become necessary.
