I've noticed over the past few months that I'm simply incapable of being honest and open without angering other people.
While I still enjoy the camaraderie, the insightful discussions about grad school stuff and the humorous off topic rants, I am tired of feeling the need to concoct elaborate justifications for ideas I think are either obvious or at least reasonable to the extent that they shouldn't be shot down. I'll probably be back eventually, but in this leave of absense you won't need to make a poll about where I'm hiding...

There hasn't been any true censorship yet (completely deleting comments), just people getting upset about what you wrote. That will happen anywhere you go. Having "freedom" of speech does not mean you can say whatever you want and expect everyone else to just shut up. You have to accept responsibility for what you say (especially because this is not truly an anonymous forum) and deal with the consequences.
I think quiz left because of my response to a post of his in the "MIT" thread. I told him no hard feelings but I guess there might be some. It just made me mad that he's scared that he will "only" get into Columbia, while I would love to get admitted to a school of that caliber.
