EDIT 2: People are sickening.

Also, some people, most probably from the comment section below, must be ''proud'' of themselves and think it's ''funny'' to Report a Journal about censorship and abuse of powers as ''Mature/Inappropriate''.
The irony there could kill a horse.

Website: www.equestriadaily.com/

EDIT: Sethisto is in the process of deleting these Error warnings. Several are now missing or 'Deleted'. Please, be advised...
-----

Means, by Sethisto himself, are being and will be used to prevent and censor all and any further distribution of information regarding an issue regarding the 'Drawfriend Numbering' error, from this point on.

This issue has officially been censored.
-----

Several posts/discussions regarding the previous issue AND regarding the deletion and censorship have also been removed
-----

The fact here is that *a person in a position of power* will be using their powers to block and silence another person from informing others about an issue(regardless of how small said issue may be to some).

No one would possibly approve of this on any other, bigger, News websites so how could we, in good conscience, accept this ? To let censorship be enforced so gratuitously there ? This is now, but what may be next ? What's the next thing that will be *deemed* unimportant and actively censored, I ask you ?

A figure of authority must enforce laws, NOT abuse their power over others or censor and bury information regarding issues.
This. Is. Not. Alright !

-----

The end note ? Fear your own opinions and worries... Sigh. That is a sad day, for everyone, when this becomes a reality.

It's a private site. They don't have censorship rules.

The selective control and removal of information, regardless of someone's own perception of the importance of an issue, to suit one's taste or mood, IS 'censorship'... Whatever if it's on a ''private'' or a 'widely open and News-based public website about ponies'.

>you don't know that the reason behind the deleting comments is to censor people.
-He practically admitted it to my face!

Seriously, what's wrong with people seemingly 'approving' of the *selective removal* of ALL information(and I do mean everything and anything relating to it) regarding a known issue. Whatever you may think of the concerned issue as 'small' is irrelevant in the fact of the action(s) being done.
There's also the retroactive nature of the deletion, going back to weeks and months earlier, in some cases.

And you seem absurdly anchored in your belief, just because something isn't BIG or MAJOR, that it's worthless and useless to do anything about it.

We all have a hell of our own making... Mine is trying to make things work better, even if by an inch. Well, what's yours then ?

An error is an error.
Something that can be solve easily and quickly should be solved easily and quickly.

Being complacent on your job, and then derogatory of others and belittling their attempt to solve or improve upon an issue is something low of anyone. Doubly so for someone is a *situation of power* who knowingly and wilfully abuse their power. One doesn't have any moral right to figuratively spit on those trying to solve issues that can and should be fixed and then go around pretending to be the ''good guy''.

People have a right to know, and people have a right to speak of issues without fearing to be *selectively* silenced.
The selective control and removal of information, regardless of someone's own perception of the importance of an issue, to suit one's taste or mood, IS 'censorship'.

Exactly my thought

So, you are one to approve the selective control and destruction of information, by someone in a situation of power, regarding an issue(regardless of someone's own perception of the importance of an issue) ?

Well... You learn new things about people every day, isn't it ?
