It took only 37 posts for me to be to be banned from posting comments at the Kos.
I would believe that being banned would require such untoward behavior such as calling people names, swearing, posting libelous remarks, being a jerk or being just plain rude. Of course in our enlightened times, there are many who believe that anyone who disagrees with them are rude or obnoxious, and are most likely stupid, superstitious, backwards and other labels that may or may not apply. The worst being "conservative" (followed closely by "Republican").
So what pushed the mods at the Kos to ban me from posting?
The very last post is unavailable at the Kos. If you look at the list of my posts you will see this message when clicking on any of the last 3 posts.
"ERROR!By the way, as an indication of how the brain trust at the Kos works, the last post, submitted on March 4th, is numbered "1" by the Kos, and my first post, submitted on January 1st, 2014, is numbered "37".
If this error doesn't make sense to you, please submit this error message to the helpdesk.Can't call method "comment_url" on an undefined value at /www/dk4-perl/current/lib/ScoopDK/Controller/Comment.pm line 150."
My next visit the Kos showed the "comment" button missing. I sent a message to the mods and received notice that I'd been Banned.
I tried to see if I had posted anything that was actually rude or insulting, but I don't believe I posted any.
Well maybe this one because it was "Condemned for all eternity"
Here are some examples of my posts... and maybe a response.
Kos article: "Did Speaker Boehner just issue an impeachment threat over executive orders?"
Note: It should read 4.7, not 47, in the last sentence.
Does that response imply anything other than an opposing opinion? While I'm sure partisans on the left do not like their heroes being labeled as uncaring lawless supporters of the one percent, I don't see any vitriol in it. Besides it happens to be true.
The truth, something Charles Krauthammer describes the Obama administration as having "an arms length relationship with". (Here)
A post in response to the article titled "Sociopathic stance on Obamacare would be fatal to GOP if successful"
My response, starting with quoting a line from the "diary":
Looking at the "scoring", Mine had one up-vote, while jqb gets 7 for labeling me as a "RW troll".
I say typical because this is the type of response conservatives, or anyone with a different perspective, will receive from Progresses and liberals. This can be seen in the media, who I label the "legacy media", because they support the Progressive agenda.
All of my posts, with the exception of those the Kos decided were unfit for human eyes (condemned) can be seen at the Kos, under the comment by me at this link. If you think I should have been banned, let me know why. I have always been open to suggestions.
