Editor's note: As many of you who read this site know, the menu on here is often California news. From time to time, we look at national and world events. Sometimes we even have to respond to outrageous claims.
Such is the case with Blog Catalog (www.blogcatalog.com). We were having some spirited debates with our friends on the left over the last couple of weeks about the upcoming presidential election. Then out of the blue, we got this note below from someone who will likely claim they are an 'impartial' moderator on the site. The note goes as follows:
from TonyB (a moderator on blog catalog) @DaveT, please type so people can explain what you are saying. Use caps at the beginning of sentences. Your run on sentences make no sense and you take things out of context just to annoy people here. The BC community has certain guidelines and standards. I've asked you to please adhere to them. I am blocking you from the discussions for a period of time. If, and when, you decide to come back, please read the guidelines and show respect to other members. Thanks
Well, we can't say we are surprised. The discussion room is loaded with those on the left who think their candidate for president (Barack Obama) and their views are just superior to everyone else. And God forbid if you should actually go into their den and challenge them on some of these views.
But the biggest thing we've noticed on the left is how sensitive everyone is. So instead of allowing for a free discussion of thoughts, and even acknowledging when we praise their views, we're told that we're not respectful towards the left, we say things that make no sense, and we take things out of context just to annoy people.
Well, in the fairness of an open society and what they would likely claim is a free forum, we would like you to take a look at some of the posts on there (see link below) and see for yourself if we (davet) should not be allowed to state the 'other side's' point of view.
As always, thanks for reading.
