Tony and I were in the midst of a quite interesting discussion on ethics and magic performance. I just logged in to check any developments, and I wonder why it is no longer here.

We were both civil, bouncing ideas back and forth and I was learning a lot. Why would such a post disappear? Is ethics something forbidden to talk about - even when done politely, and in the genuine search for good information? I don't even think we were disagreeing. Would such a thread be terminated? Is not ethics an important part of such a powerful art form.

Tony and I seemed to think it was important. How many times must a magician talk about double lifts rather than a topic with substance? Aren't we supposed to be informed when the magic police decend upon us?

Sorry, I am again disappointed in the Café. A waste of a potentailly good forum. I am genuinely hoping the topic will still be there and I missed it for some reason, or there was a glich and it did not load. Hopefully I will look a fool for posting this, rather than it being erased.

Every time I come to the Café posts of all sorts start disappearing, from all sorts of people. Most of these I have seen disappear are in good spirit. Is the free flow of information forbidden?


And Tony, I am listening. I would love to bounce some more ideas in a forum that promotes thinking.


Uhhh so...double lifts are pretty cool. What do you guys think?

There are two things that everyone who posts here must bear in mind. One is that if a discussion becomes too controversial, or if it gets too many complaints from one group or another, it will be moved into the cooler. This happens when we allow discussions to go somewhat far afield. I don't know what may have triggered this, but I'm sure it was due to someone flagging the thread.

Once this happens, the powers that be will look at it and see if there is anything that needs to be edited out. They will clean it up and put it back on the forum.

There are two things to bear in mind. One is that the powers that be are not to be questioned.

The other is that this is Steve's forum. He determines what is within proper boundaries.

If you haven't gotten a PM from him asking what's going on, it probably wasn't one of your posts that did it.
