An administrator posted his defense of the page early Thursday morning, saying the page "clearly prohibits racism", and told KNOE anyone who makes racial slurs is blocked from the group.

Administrator Daniel Norred says the page has even been reported to police, but has faith the true intentions of the page - to spread awareness about the community of Ruston - will let it thrive.

However, Norred says there should be a limit on what is allowed to be posted.

"I think the only limit should be that there is some factual evidence to what they are posting," says Norred. "I do not believe we are going to get shut down. If we get shut down, we'll start all over from scratch. That's perfectly fine with me. Ruston Rants is not going anywhere."
