Just in case you did not know but this site has followed this policy for at least 2 years and will continue to do so....
Kindly follow policy!
IMPORTANT POLICY ANNOUNCEMENT: In order to protect the public, ProBoards has instituted a policy which prohibits the posting of misinformation related to the COVID-19 outbreak. More details are available on our Support Forum.
Every time I log in as an administrator I see that message and it finally dawned on me that I should share that information.
Put it this way, this site merely exists via the generosity of a person who set up the pro-boards site format some time ago.
I am merely conveying a message that they felt they should convey and I actually appreciated the wording.
Someone who shall remain nameless posted a calendar girl photo that I thought was okay but we got an immeadiate cease and desist notice which fair enough is the real site owners choice.
But in the 2 years we have been operating that is the only condemnation and I accepted that and notified the particular poster who deleted it.
The person that owns/runs the pro boards sites made a squillion dollars from early days computing a bit like Elon Musk so despite memoryfault's concern I think this site will be still operational even after the dickheads have destroyed the Australian electricity system,
The enemy have us surrounded. Good! Now we know where to find the bastards! -various

You are talking about censorship by decree, NFA, which has sfa to do with network blacklisting.
Censorship by decree amounts to government issuing a "thou shalt not" order and then fining, jailing or otherwise punishing somebody who does not comply. Network blacklisting however, creates an actual barrier preventing a person from connecting to a site. The site simply disappears as far as the end user is concerned.
Enthusiastic co-operation with genocide. Easily the most gutless quisling thread of Catallaxy in all its form. Jason's Catallaxy, Sinclairs Catallaxy, And Catallaxy The Fractured But Whole. This is the worst display of craven glory hole presentation to evil in the history of Catallaxy.
