Guys, it's not a matter of censorship, the OP's post was simply deemed to belong in the section it was moved to. Just like if you were to mistakenly post a pistol for sale in the Handgun Discussion Section; one of the Mods would move it to the appropriate spot in The Classifieds. Sometimes, I'll use The Feed or the What's New tabs and do a scan for threads posted in the wrong spot. If we do move one, we send notice to the OP. It keeps things where they belong. Ex: If you really want to sell that gun, it should be listed in the classifieds, not in some other part of the site. And if you want to talk about things like these latest mass shootings and either the initial post or the various responses go political, or get heated, then it needs to be in the Politics and Hot topics section.

Keeping threads in the correct section keeps the site organized for everyone's benefit.

However, that's not what happened in this case.
It was moved to a section that can't be seen by the general public not logged in or members who haven't turned on access. I have no idea what the original post was, but it was deemed possibly heated or political in nature and apparently not for everyone's eyes. Several other boards I frequent do the same thing, but you have to pay for access. It's how they keep inflammatory topics from prying eyes. Others just mark it NSFW and you enter at your own risk. But we still get our hands smacked from time to time there. IMHO, it's exactly what happened. It's not my board and the owner/s have a format they want to stick to, so it's all good.

You do NOT have to pay to access this section on OSA, all you have to do is opt-in by editing your profile. Go to profile and select "join user groups" and you're in.

I never said you had to pay here. I said "Several other boards I frequent do the same thing, but you have to pay for access." Context. Anyway, you still have to join and allow access. It's not available to those not members. That's the bottom line. It's hidden, just not super hard to get to. I know people from out of state who won't join because it's not USA Shooters, it's Oklahoma Shooters. There's no arguing what it is, no matter how it's defended. In any case, I'm done with this discussion.
