I spent a week arguing with my husband over E2 before he ever set eyes on it.

His major gripe was with the idea that writeups and nodes can be removed, and that everyone in the community has a power to contribute to that by downvoting. He sees that as a form of censorship by which legitimate (read - any ole') information gets lost.

Personally, that smacks of libertarianism to me. I emphatically disagree with the notion that everything - including snuff movies and child pornography - has a right to propagate itself on the internet. That just doesn't work for me, sorry. There have to be limits, and limits self-imposed by the community where the writers are also the readers strike me as a good compromise between complete anarchy and strict censorship.
