    Where does it say anywhere that AULRO allows freedom of speech, or is a Democracy, etc?

    There are plenty of places where anyone can say anything they want, but this isnít one of them. Remember that this place is here to give Land Rover owners a place to learn and ask questions etc about their vehicles. The rest of what we carry on about here is supplemental to that, and Google partly pays for the site to operate through revenue from Adsense so I donít see why itís an overreach to follow the rules they want to impose.

    If you donít like it there are plenty of other places to go to chat about such things.

    Gav, that particular part of the discussion was about the broader issues around Google, not AULRO. I am aware of, and totally support AULRO's position here. It's far preferable for a site like this one to maintain certain standards to keep certain threads from degenerating into slanging matches, a point I've made before. From a persronal perspective I wish we didn't have to depend on Google, but it is what it is, and that's fine.

    The definition of which is also merely opinion. Google, FB, Twitter and the like do not have a mortgage on fact.

    And often no basis in fact. I prefer my information to come from scientists, doctors and other relevant specialists, rather than some random bogan on social media, who never progressed their education beyond high school.

    You seem to assume that all such people agree, and the MSM and tech companies push that narrative. It's the same thing as saying "the science is settled". Well, if it's settled it ain't science. There are large numbers of highly qualified medical personel who disagree with what you are being told. That isn't "misinformation". a term largely used by the tech companies, it is merely different information. There are no absolutes here.

    This is how 'vaccination' should be presented. "Informed Consent".
    Interesting to look up Japan's "case" numbers / hospitalisations / Deaths. Compare with other similar size & populated countries.

    WTF?

    it isn't mandatory here in australia either, even 13 year olds need to give personal consent to be jabbed ... but you are held responsible to some degree for your decisions here and there
