Subject: 2015001 - Please Explain...
You seem concerned about opinions that never get posted because of concern for government surveillance -- I quote:
An October 2013 survey PEN conducted of U.S. writers found that 85 percent "were very or somewhat worried about current levels of government surveillance" and that 16 percent reported having censored themselves by not writing or speaking about a particular topic.
Please explain -- What is the difference between the self censorship committed by writers because of government surveillance and the censorship imposed by the journalist community on opinions of non-journalists -- particularly opinions that may be critical of some journalist opinions.
This web site (http://iifihadmyway.com) has been publishing since January 1998 -- lack of response is the most aggravating type of censorship.
Why?? Please explain this massive hypocrisy.
To be continued (I really hope)

I don't provide for comments since that is a system designed to control the communication process -- I do provide an e-mail address!! (Please put a [MYWAY] in your title to get my attention).
BTW, I am working on a replacement system -- and I sure could use some help.
