- Censorship on this forum - Why censor do not state rules a thread broke, after deleting it? Who censors respond to?

Hello Asgardians! After some discussion on other people's threads we opened our own thread in the Economic subsection of this forum. It was a long post, about a currency, and it was appreciated: someone made questions and got answers, it was an useful discussion and, as far we can tell, it didn't violate any forum posting rule. Today it is gone, Censors deleted it. There is no explanation at all, nor a PM telling us "your post violated the rule X of this forum, and for this reason we had to censure it." We don't like censorship as principle but we agree sometimes it is necessary if someone break rules. That's not our case, or at least the anonymous censor didn't take a minute to write us "your post was deleted because it break rule X". We're wondering why.. (also censoring an economy thread make us wonder what happens to controversial discussions, as religion, sexuality... or Science, Galileo docet) For a potential space country who claim as objective to reunite several populations under the same flag and organize the birth of a new Nation (trough a forum) this "fahrenheit 451°" action sounds very strange. 1) How an Asgardia citizen is meant to discuss relevant topics if he gets censored with no explanations about the rule he broke? Probably our post was censored for a valid reason, but we're sorry, we can't find it. 2) There are "online Asgardia cops" patrolling the forum and deleting posts they don't like. Shouldn't citizen know who these cops are? Shouldn't citizens know who those online cops respond to? Head of Nation? A peculiar Minister? Do these guards have an extra secret rulebook we should know about, to avoid incurring in their censorship? Dear Asgardians, there is no progress for a Nation who burns books. “A book is a loaded gun in the house next door... Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?” It was a metaphorical warning, it was not meant to be taken literally ;-)
