Dear Members of the Universal House of Justice:
Please consider the following message from a moderator of
soc.religion.bahai in your consultation on censorship and the
In this message, the moderators are actually censoring the
very Words of Baha'u'llah Himself!
Permit me to say I've used the signature file below for at least
a month or two. Many Bahais and non-Bahais have such
signature files that refer to databases or websites reflecting
their interests. I consider it an unconscionable act of censorship
to prevent my posting to soc.religion.bahai, part of the "country"
of Internet, merely on such a basis.

Dear Mr. Glaysher:
Many thanks for your quotation but I saw no point to it except to advertize
the RFD for trb.
The moderators have decided that srb is not the place to discuss this issue
and a moderators' posting will be made shortly explaining the reasons. If
you would like to resubmit the quotation in support of your views on the
Bahai Faith, without the  reference to the RFD to trb, I will be happy to
post it.

Tablets of Bahá'u'lláh revealed after the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, pp. 22-23:
"In every country where any of this people reside, they must behave
towards the government of that country with loyalty, honesty and
truthfulness. This is that which hath been revealed at the behest of
Him Who is the Ordainer, the Ancient of Days."
