It is worth recalling BarryA's announcement of UD's "new" moderation policy:
† †
UDís moderation policy is fairly simple: As a general rule, so long as your comment is not defamatory profane, or a vicious personal attack, you can say pretty much what you want. We have no interest in censoring viewpoints, because we believe ID is true and consequently in any full and fair debate we will win ó and if we donít win we either need to learn to debate better or change our position. Donít get me wrong. Iím not opening this site up to nasty juvenile name-calling fests like one see so often at Pandaís Thumb. †But if you keep your comments restricted to ideas and not attacking people, you should have no problems passing muster here...

...Our readers will then be in a position to see: (1) that UD, unlike the Darwinists, doesnít ban or censor ideas; and (2) that theism in general and Christianity in particular is quite capable of defending itself against lies, distortions, illogical arguments, and misunderstandings. Our role is not to censor ideas but to provide a forum where hard questions can be discussed calmly, fully, and fairly, and we trust that when that happens truth will prevail.
