What say you, Scott, to that accusation?

EricHunt2020 last posted on the 25th April. He posted a short message around the forum;
"Update 4/25 *My posts and posts by others are being moderated/censored/ split off into "memory hole" forum by the deniers who run this forum. So I'm outta here. If a real free speech forum can be suggested let me know..."
If it was him, he appears to have gone.
Well, Eric Hunt edited the original post on his thread on 4/25 with the accusation that he was being censored or trifled with somehow. When I saw the accusation, I did some careful checking of the Moderator and Admin logs to see if I could confirm this but found nothing weird, so I edited his original post with my answer as follows:

Hey all, your old pal Eric Hunt here.
Update 4/25 *My posts and posts by others are being moderated/censored/ split off into "memory hole" forum by the deniers who run this forum. So I'm outta here. If a real free speech forum can be suggested let me know. Denial is easily dismantled if given the opportunity to reply to their con game which involves refusing to acknowledge massive evidence which exists, then claiming it doesn't exist. Holocaust Denial is a hoax. If Peinovich wants to stop censoring the truth and stop hiding in his coronavirus bunker, he can defend his denial nonsense in a debate moderated by Ryan Dawson who he is in frequent communication with.*
EDIT from SCOTT SMITH ─ re: UPDATE 4/25.
As far as I know Eric Hunt has not had any of his posts moved or edited, at least not intentionally. I see nothing weird in the Admin or Moderator logs. We routinely delete double posts, and board latency usually causes this. And my Internet is especially slow right now during the CoViD-19 pandemic.
Anyway, I repeat, Eric Hunt has not been censored, at least not intentionally. Anything weird, you can directly notify me.
I suspect that what happened is that Eric was conversing with Nessie in the Memory Hole 2 subforum (because Nessie was then banned from posting in the Holocaust subforum) and either got confused as to where his posts were going, or just used Nessie's temporary posting restrictions as an EXCUSE TO VAMOOSE from RODOH and perhaps to renege on his offer to debate with Mike Peinovich from:
But even if Eric quits posting here for some reason, I sincerely hope that the debate he claims to want will take place.
As a newly-registered poster, Eric's RODOH account might have been subjected to some post-flood-safety-checks or other things from the board software. This could have combined with some board latency and trashed one of his posts, I don't know. (My Internet is extremely unstable and slow right now, and i am probably not the only one.) I did look at all those settings and made some tweaks but, as I said, I couldn't find anything weird.
Again, I never split or messed with any of Eric's posts─if any such thing actually occurred─and I have been through all of the board logs.
Also, as I announced in the "Will There be an Open Debate?" thread in MH2
, I took that opportunity to restore Nessie's full posting permissions. I think he has earned it by now, and I think that I have made my point to all as well about obsessively and compulsively derailing threads.
I would have done this a long time ago─as I told Nessie─but I had a general revolt on my hands, so I wasn't sure exactly WHEN I would restore his full privileges. As much as I am a sort of free-speech absolutist, I do have to think about the interest of the forum itself and all of its participants.
I understand that Mike Peinovich has been discussing the prospects for debate with Holocaust Controversies but I have not had time to listen to the 5/1/2020 TRS podcast yet (and my Internet has been timing out badly all day).
Btw, I posted a link in MH2 to the Music Video that Svenpai from TRS did about the Irene Zisblatt story but I don't think anybody has seen it. Eric mentioned it in his OP on this thread so I'll link to it again. Pretty funny stuff.
