That's a bit different. She was convicted for possession of terrorist materials.

Quote:
Samina Malik, from Southall, west London, was found guilty at the Old Bailey of owning terrorist manuals.

Quote:
She was convicted of having articles "likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism".

This is not the same as being convicted for having thoughts. She was in possession of articles forbidden under the relevant act.

Yes, but what about the original charge?

And besides, there is no definition of "terrorist materials" in law, except that the police can make it up as they go along. Seriously, the owner's manual for a sniper rifle? FFS!

The reason I came to DSC was because the board I was on before just spiralled out of control and the owner had to shut down the forum. I became almost impossible to get anything of substance done because there was so much cutthroat immature posting going on. That only took about 7 or 8 months to degenerate into the final mess and although I doubt this board will do anything similar, the web team is probably mature enough to cut that kind of action out early and still leave in the normal unabusive crackpot postings. To me, it is not censorship at all or a matter of the law, but truly a question of viable survival. The WT is in a difficult position! Yet, the strength of the board is in our hands.
