I'm not talking about book banning, but really something else. Yesterday I ran across a blog post, read it, made note to comment but got busy and honestly forgot. Today, during a moment of downtime, I intended to go back and comment. Just a word of encouragement, chin up type of thing.
I found the post had been removed. This isn't really about that as much as it is about me, which is why I'm not mentioning the blog in question as it's just one of the many I quietly follow and sometimes comment on. See, O has made me do that. Remove a post. At the time I never questioned it, just did as he asked, and of course I apologized to him and the readers of this blog.
But...was that really the right thing to do? Was whatever I had written that wrong? It was my feelings, my emotions and right or wrong my thoughts. Isn't that the purpose of blogging at least for me? The truth was when O did that it bothered me a lot. Was I supposed to censor myself? Edit out anything that wasn't agreeable? Sometimes I do wrap things around my head wrong, or see things that just aren't there but does that mean that each time, I'm supposed to edit and remove whatever it was? How is that accurate? At that moment that was how I felt or how I believed I had interpreted what O said. If I got it wrong well that could be fixed later. He could correct it by commenting, or asking me to add something.
He has access to my blog he could have put up his own post about how wrong I was, or did that in his own blog. Anything. He didn't. Instead he made me remove my words. For a while I even had to pre-approve my topics so I didn't offend him or get into trouble.
Is that crossing a line? Asking a slave or sub or whatever, to pull a blog post because they don't agree with the content, maybe because it's just too emotional? Even if it is wrong, or a giant misunderstanding, does that give the Dom, Domme or whoever the right to censor what is written by their property? I mean of course it does, but should they use that right, or should they pull up the big boy (or girl) pants, discuss the problem, fix it and leave the post up there as a reminder for better communication for the future?
