A friend sent me a link to yet another Urban Exploration (UE or UrbEx) Website. Undercity Dot Org is a rather interesting UrbEx Website as UrbEx tends to be.

Almost simultaneously, the censors at EDC Forums edited a member's thread/post linking a video found on that website. The reason cited for the censorship was they don't want to promote illegal activities. Unfortunately, that doesn't make a lot of sense considering they left discussion open regarding the website! For some reason, discussion and commentary on these nefarious "illegal activities" is somehow "okay" but viewing the actual video is not.

After a few exchanges about various acts of censorship, I have given up trying to figure out how people justify their actions when it comes to the exchange of information.

As Paladin Press Owner Peder Lund once told the "journalists" of ABC's program, "20/20," notorious for their hit pieces, "Once you begin censorship, it's impossible to stop censorship."

Here is to the free-flow of ideas. That is what the Internet was supposed to be. Some people wish to turn it into a very rigid structure of control.
