For many reasons I sincerely appreciate our LSCC message boards and the Gobrecht journal but one important reason that has stood the test of time is that we are free to post controversial topics and information here with little fear of reprisal from other organizations that filter information. Like the grading companies message boards, numismatic publications, etc.

If you have ever submitted an article for publication on a controversial subject you have probably experienced this, often in the form of editing. Sometimes a writers intended message can be dramatical changed by the editor changing the tone or a few words. I understand why these organizations monitor and enforce their rules and preferences but the free and unedited opportunity to express and discuss different ideas and perspectives is extremely important and of great value. These open unfiltered exchanges provide an opportunity to consider information and views that can open our minds, provide reasons or new prospectives, for why we might modify, change, or strengthen, our opinions, positions, and even beliefs.

The journal and forum are great. It’s a great spot for us to meet and learn from other collectors. A ton of knowledge on the boards.
As far as other boards I’m sure they edit quite a bit. If I’m not mistaken that’s the first person on the board.

I don’t have much experience on message boards ... I’ve never been much of a writer. But I have to agree that it is very important and helpful being able to post whatever comes to mind without being worried about being censored. I’ve read other sites and sounds like there is certain things that can’t be written? Not sure why ?

I have never had any difficulty with the LSCC Message Board and have been provided excellent information not often available elsewhere ~ an excellent resource that many are simply not aware of.
