Why is freedom of speech inately superior?

Yelling fire in a crowded theater, when there is no fire is a bad idea.

Slander and libel are free speech, but reasonable arguements can be made against them.

I also hope everyone here can see the difference between adspam and legitimate recruitment RMB postings and not suppress them all.

Edited a 6 year old post from TWP so that I could make my 6 year ago self not look like a fool xd

You can still read them, just click on the plus sign. :P

Dudley do-right

You can also delete your own posts if your are delegate.

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Don't have to be Delegate to delete your own posts. Finally a way to fix those pesky mistakes. Delete...repost.

But should you settle for suppression? Some parts of that good old days were the random conversations or additions the recruiters brought to the RMB. Honestly, if you make a policy to suppress ALL adspam and not just ones that break the rules previously outlined...than you start sending a message that recruiters should not come, which will reduce the amount of people reading and contributing to RMB conversations.

A region for those wishing to learn, role-play, or discuss Nazism and National Socialism. With nearly a hundred members, NE is one of the oldest, largest and most active Nazi region within NationStates. All like minded are welcomed, but all possible trolls/spammers will be banjected. If you have any questions, telegram Scarsaw.


I agree with Bravo. I think there needs to be a distinction. I know you have a point Duc, but I do believe that as long as us recruiters contribute in some way to the conversation, it should be deemed acceptable.

Further, TWP is a legitimate recruitment region, yet allowing recruiters to be supressed... it just doesn't seem right.

Ok everybody letīs do anaerobics
For you barbarians information, thatīs aerobics without all the unpleasant,heavy breathing.Some people donīt breath at all.

My only problem with that idea, Vlatvia, is what happens is there appears to be no active conversation to contribute to? I mean, I'm a yappy thing and so often try to put a point in here and there when I advertise; however, there has been days where there was nothing but garbage going on. No conversation, only random posts...would it be right for me to continue the rabble, which is only a few steps away from spam?

Mos long lost twin

Good for you, Bravo. Good for you.

True, but at least it's better than pure spam. Your point only reinforces what you were saying before though, that us legitimate non-adspam recruiters read and try to contribute to RMB conversations, even if (as you've just pointed out) there isn't anything to contribute to.

Would you rather TWP supresses all RMB recruitment?

Scarsaw outpost bravo

I do think that it's polite for recruiters to contribute, and is something I promote; however I'm not sure if making it mandatory is the right thing to do. Taking a step back, and playing a bit of Devil's advocate, I can't help but wonder how does the ability to suppress should change anything? That part confuses me.

I mean, in the past delegates had the ability to ban the person, so why weren't those who posted only spam banned? Why was it tolerated to begin with? Shouldn't the same rules as before apply? What is it about suppression that demand that newer, sticker, rules be made?

It's been itching at me since my posts got suppressed in North Pacific simply because it's NAZI EUROPE, and I think we should at least explore this before making such grand, prehaps game-changing, decisions.

Thatīs amazing. How come the idea of supressing RMB recruiting never cross TWP veteransī minds ? Thank you, Vlatvia!

I was thinking that those regions that have active embassies open on the TWP forum would be granted an exception from Suppression. A thread has been started on the forum for comments.

But I also don't mind AdSpam that shows due consideration for the community and it's RMB conversations.

@bravo. I must say I find it amusing that you argue for free speech here, yet you deny it to folks who may want to have it your region.

Scarsaw outpost bravo

But would you grand all who request an embassy?

What do you mean by that Ethel?


Mos long lost twin

RMB recruiting in the Feeder regions plus TRR and Laz is a game feature.
Weīre authorized to deal with it, not to stop it. Period.

Scarsaw outpost bravo

If you start suppressing all but a select (and possibly elite) few, than wouldn't that stop this game feature?

Mos long lost twin

New ones will swarm in, my young padawan. They always do.

Suppression is a new toy for the delegates (and founders) to use in managing their regions. The feature is there to be used or ignored at the Delegate's whim.

Mos long lost twin

Tell it to the Mods, AGP...

I'm sure the mods are 'listening' at the moment. I've seen them lurking about. :P

Scarsaw outpost bravo

I don't understand what you mean when you say "new ones will swarm in." If you do only allow those who have active embassies (and it's not clear if all who ask would be given an embassy) with you to post recruitment posts than doesn't that greatly diminish the game feature or prehaps even eliminate it?

Saying that only regions A and B can post because they are accepted and applied, than suppressing all others, is not really dealing with recruitment spam but slowing it to a near stoppage point.

@Bravo. I agree with what you're saying, but the problem I see is that I do think it will be used differently. You may play by the rules, but for one reason or another, you'll be suppressed. As you said, you were suppressed - not banned - because of your region name, which if you think about it, wouldn't have happened before.

You're right, the same rules should apply, but I just don't think they will. And I know it's only one click away from a message being 'un-suppressed', but that could make all the difference when it comes to recruiting. As you can see above, TWP is divided on how this feature should be used, and I do think the outcome of this is that it will have a bad impact on us.
