My thread "The Apocalyptic Depression of the 21st century" was moved to chit chat after I added "The Collapse of the Dollar" to the thread. Ivanovich (moderator) posted:- . I'm leaving this forum. I'm not one who argues, but before I leave this forum I will still state my position and hope Ivanovich would let some people read this before moving this also to chi chat. What I understand is that Ivanovich implied that I do not qualify to post about economics or to make post that fits the standard required in the Economics section. I could only surmise the reasons being one of the following :- 1) That the last post in particular "The Apocalyptic Depression of the 21st century" or the post "The Collapse of the Dollar" have something highly offensive to good social (or economic) sense and sensibility. So it is the duty of a responsible moderator to move the thread to a less prominent place. 2) that my posts frequently contain glaring economic factual errors, information or completely fallacious economic arguments. 3) that what I posted frequently are nonsense obvious to anyone. There is no way for me to defend myself as nothing official or clear was said except implied through the mention of kitco.com. I would have stop posting anything serious about economics if anyone pointed out to me that I simply don't know economics and should not posts any and if Ivanovich concurred and issues a hint of a warning. But no one pointed where I went wrong. I don't reply to things like "That's all bullshit" offered as arguments. But then moderators need not give any reason for their action. So this is my personal experience about American freedom of speech, thoughts, expression, etc.. Not hearsay.
