    I really do think that any amount of "silencing" is absolutely ludicrous because the fact is there were people complaining about the JMS era Spidey, people complaining about OMD, people complaining about BND era, and people complaining about Slott.

    At all of those times, I at times in at least some instances fell into the complaining side rather than the fan side. That I was able to complain and never feel "silenced" makes me think that the people who feel "silenced" probably did something to deserve it.

I think you're setting up a false dichotomy here. The way you put it, "silencing" is no problem as long as it isn't 100 per cent effective or it doesn't inconvenience you personally.

Obviously it all depends on what Former SMB Member meant by "silencing". Personally, I think that the way people got flak for the mere fact that they criticized OMD, that they were right from the start maligned as "haters", accused as being "selfish" for liking married Peter Parker, told to "get over it" etc. pretty clearly amounted to an attempt to silence dissent instead of engaging with criticism.
