Here is a something I've written recently in the thread "Re: Effective
Prospecting" dated Dec 1, 1998.  You might want to add it to your list of

I've had posts censored in the past as well.  The moderators are a bit
overzealous at times.  Since all the controversy started, it has gotten
worse.  I think they are a bit defensive at the moment. 
There is a concept in Baha'i thought that the Faith is like a sapling that
needs to be protected until it can stand on it's own.  Part of this
"protection" is a degree of censorship.  However, I don't think this is
being handled very wisely in some respects. The Baha'i
[soc.religion.bahai] moderators forget, I believe, how sensitive folks are
on the Internet to these kinds of things.
