My latest post re crime and burglary has been removed.
There was nothing offensive in the post.
it was factually correct and aimed at bringing about greater good.

The Police were praised for their actions in the text of the post

So how does censorship of this type win over democracy and free speech ?

Safecracker, your post has not been removed. It has been moved to a more appropriate forum: "Neighbourhood Watch". When you go to the top bar and click "My Stuff" then "Your Posts", you will see it is still there. The current post actually belongs in "Chat Area", but will leave it here for now.

The post titled burglary and Crime has been removed !!!
The original posts reporting the burglary have been buried in a sub forum of Living in Belize.
This subject needs to be acknowledged and addressed not buried !!

It is very unfortunate that your property has suffered more than one burglary. The posts regarding crime, safety and neighborhood watch issues have specific areas on this forum. The chat area of this forum is not the right place. Thank you for observing the message board moderators requests during this peak season holiday weekend.

Democracy and free speech are observed in message board chat forums - please utilize the relevant sub-forums.

Amanda, in this peak season you are letting down all of the visitors to the island.
You are mis leading them to a false sense of security rather than acknowledging the problem.
If people were aware they would be more careful and more vigilant.

Safecracker,

I have asked about your post "Burglary and Crime" and there were several complaints because you accused someone, that's why it was removed.
As Amanda said, there are specific forums for neighborhood watch and people living here. The Ambergris Caye forum is not meant for that.

Thanks for getting back to me and I hope you'll understand the structure of this board a little better now.
If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know.

Admin

Amanda,
Could we please make Safecracker a Business Forum member so he can put the post there.
This criminal is a major problem in our area and getting bolder. We have videos of the robberies and they continue.
