Free speech, ethics, etc.

I find your idea regarding "free speech" etc. a little odd. Thus is Dr.Bob's site, and he's free to edit it as he sees fit, since he's responsible for it. I don't think it's unreasonable to modify posts that suggest lethal doses of meds, or sources of drugs that are illegal in the U.S. I don't always agree with the warnings or blocks, but since it's his site, he can exercise whatever judgement he wants, and if people don't like it, then they shouldn't frequent this site.

Not all the advice given here is totally sound, but people with experience can sift through it pretty efffectively. For those less experienced, there are usually enough alternative views that they can at least see the range of opinions. This is pretty rare on the net.

I think my judgement is fairly good, I'm not naive, and I get a lot of good information from this site. I take it all with a grain of salt, but clearly a lot of the posters know what they're talking about either technically, or based on experience, or (usually) both.

Do you really think that shutting down this site would help the majority of those who use it? I don't -- it's a very useful forum for exchange of information, and if a bad suggestion slips through once in a while, so be it --that's free speech, with all of its risks (and benefits).
