Lack of free speech on this forum as moderators delete posts and threads
I have noticed an uphill surge in moderators restricting free speech in these forums, deleting threads and posts. Are you kidding me? Who do they think they are? Right now I was reading an interesting thread about extracurriculars for Ivey before it got deleted and the conversation with it. I can bring up so many Charter violations right now and point to the rules that this website promised to abide by. This is getting damn ridiculous and I am a parent, teacher and a university professional. These mods need to go on other similar student websites to see how they are run. Learn what running a FORUM is about. You don't just delete all the posts and threads you want to just because you don't like what is being said on them. How are students going to feel free to express themselves here if you just go on every thread moderating what is being said, and if something is said that you don't like you either delete the post or challenge it.

Edit: For an example of what I am talking about see Razear's links (below) to various forums.

How did you decide what program you are doing in university
Heyy people, I am a going-to-gr12 public hs kid wondering what to do in life.

A brief info about myslf:
1. Live in GTA
2. Like interior designs, fascinated by tech, love to eat, outgoing, enjoy flying and driving
3. my favourite YouTube video is "A Day Made of Glass"
4. i studied because of others, not for myself (aka I got good grades but I didnt enjoy them)
5. my ultimate goal is to retire asap (at 45) [I know it may not be feasible, but still...)

Here's my gr11 grades
English 83
Functions 99
Accounting  94
Marketing  96
Chemistry 86
Physics 82
Biology 90
Broadcasting 87

And my only grade 12 grade is physics (completed in summer school) - 94

As above, how did you decide what you are going to do in the future??? Like how do you figure out what you want??
I like interior designs, tech, food, sports, but the thing is - i can't see myself in the future
I dont know what to do? Despite trying to get good grades and apply every single university in ontario....
I really need some advice. Please give me some advice :) :) :)

Thank you very much

University GUIDANCE needed please help! CALLING ALL YCONIC MEMBERS!
Hi to all of the members on Yconic. I am currently in grade 11, attending a semestered school. I have spoken to numerous guidance councillors at my school and need some help as their guidance is COMPLETELY USELESS. 
I have a strong interest in chemistry and business. I like the idea of becoming a pharmacist, doctor or investment banker. I am applying to university in grade 12 and really could use some advice. I do not want to pursue university and graduate with a BA, in which will leave me hanging in the longrun. Do you think I should go for a Bachelor of Science and hopefully get in to med school? Or go for a more secured option and attend a business school and get a corporate job? 
Please let me know what you think I should do in accordance to my current grades which I will list below. Thank you so much. I really need some guidance ASAP as my school has none to offer. 

SEMESTER 1 (FINAL GRADES)
GRADE 11 CHEMISTRY- 86 
GRADE 11 PHYSICS- 80
GRADE 11 PERSONAL TRAINING-95
GRADE 11 ENGLISH- 87

SEMESTER 2 (MIDTERMS)
GRADE 12 BUSINESS LEADERSHIP- 84 
GRADE 12 INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS- 86
GRADE 11 BIOLOGY- 75
GRADE 11 FUNCTIONS (ACADEMIC)-65
TOTAL AVERAGE: 82.25
P.S Im currently enrolled for summer school gr 12 english and gr 12 advanced functions 
Thank you so much for reading this! I am really lacking some guidance.

Interesting device. Let's discuss
Hi guys! A couple of days ago I was looking through new Kickstarter project and found the device called CarDroid. You can search it on the Kickstarter website.
 Seems like an interesting idea to me but I've never tried anything like that. What do you think about this device?
