Creating a blog to calm the political storm...

It's been a week since the Moderator swept through and deleted a shitload bunch of political, virus, religious blogs in an attempt to steer blogs (and forums) back to their intended direction... dating.

I see a few disguised as something else have slipped through and that's to be expected. What I didn't expect was the original post by the Moderator having taken on a life of it's own with a high-level of bickering... it bears the very same tone of blogs that were deleted.

At some point I'd wager at least one of the following: The blog to be locked, some comments to be deleted, an additional revision or entry from the Moderator.

Years ago, Yahoo allowed for comments to their articles/stories and sometime last year, that was discontinued as opinions went beyond opinion with name calling and comment abuse taking the focus far away from what Yahoo intended.

I think this first round was a polite warning...

rolling on the floor laughing The blog watcher hath spake!!!

They can't even write a Moderator blog that warns about the political shite, without it being taken over by the political ########!?

It's all wrong,I tell ye!laugh
spake, the archaic past tense of speak. laugh

I heard a word yesterday that British sometimes use and Americans don't... shat.
The woman said she laughed so hard that she shat herself!
Marbsroo
laugh People tend to say 'I've shit myself', rather than the past tense which is 'I shat myself' (not that I would know, being a lady!)

Because one wouldn't want the fact that one had shit oneself (hence shat) to be too far in the present... (hence the lingering waste products about one's person.) In the interests of health and hygiene, one must 'deal with it!'

So, if you have 'had an accident', or 'shit oneself' then I suppose you've just got to 'suck it and see'...

Shit happens!

A thinly veiled demand for more censorship of views you don't agree with.

Some people are obsessed with controlling what other people can and cannot talk about.
Marbsroo
Some people just need a good shit! laugh
Can we censor the word "whilst" while we're at it? For some reason that word really bothers me. I don't know, seems archaic.
Dongg
Everything UK is archaic.

Pardon me, it was crystal clear they said P&C.
The admonishment here about any steering away from religion has become " virtue signaling" if not straight harassment from Jim and
..now you?

Clearly some people are going to defend Jim's tactics but your statement is over-reaching what was being
censored.Does your preference demand retaliation too? We can easily read who has ignored the mods
and very few blogs have been removed since.
A few had comments removed by the moderator.
If one believed your statement simply hit topic button and find the truth.
Marbsroo
Yes Gongg, we poo like real anarchists!!! We could give a shit! laugh
Dongg
Let's face it. CS got the memo from the DNC just like other social media sites. They control the government now so no need to try to hide their communist mind control anymore. What a coincidence that all the social media sites suddenly decided to unabashedly censor political talk that doesn't support the DNC agenda at the same time and at the very moment their side took over Washington.
Marbsroo
Rose, I don't see any problems here!! Only being light-hearted and laughing about the past and present form of the word 'shit'!!!
Marbsroo
Dongg, isn't that happening all over the so called social media now? It started with shutting down Trump's online voice and now, there seems to be a lot of censoring going on? Political or coincidence?
RoseHipster
BTW, that few that had comments removed by the moderator,
refers to the commenters that like
to show their control
through the great common denominator;
over-sexualizing everything in a perverse or
immature way.
(Especially on the blogs of Believers because
that is somehow more a courageous hit n run,
then whine their damage was deleted).

It gets more pathetic every day in their attempts to
kill anyone's happy blog.
People are begging for the return of civility,
kindness and homey anecdotes, the main
reason people leave is the vitriol:
Mockery, sarcasm, vulgarity,control, divisiveness
and retaliation.
Grandchildren behave better than the adults here.
Blogland is easily in the 50+ range and BITTER.

The only censoring being done is by the left. The right does not need to censor because their views are popular and people voluntarily subscribe to them. That's exactly why the left censors them. If they allowed people to hear them, they would lose the ideological war. Their only hope is to prevent people from hearing views that oppose theirs and allowing them the free will to make up their own minds. Think Nazi Germany or Communist Red China. That's what's going on in America today with the left.

I resemble that remark!
RoseHipster
Out the entire introduction one could take out of context "shitload" as the main theme.
So consider my comments as similarly referring to the bullshit of claiming religion was also censored.
Not that it would matter in any way to you clearly.

As this segues into politics too.
RoseHipster
wink some do enjoy a shit show..others
avoid then before they become a shit storm.
Have fun kids.
Dongg
I don't understand why people can't just mind their own business and let other people talk about anything they want to. Why do some people have to be such busybodies and have to control everyone else?
Dongg
I see lots of things that people talk about that I don't agree with, don't like, find offensive or just find boring. I would never even consider demanding to make them stop talking about it. What business is it of mine to take away the free exchange that other people want to participate in? Where does it end. If you force me to stop talking about things you don't like me talking about and I force you to stop talking about things I don't like you talking about no one will be able to talk about anything.

Why don't people just mind their own business and let other people talk about anything they want? The answer is that they have a fascistic mindset and want to abolish anything they don't agree with because they are so insecure about their own beliefs. It's a mental disorder.
A thinly veiled demand for more censorship of views you don't agree with.

No Dongg... Thinly veiled or not, I'm not demanding censorship of any kind. Knowing you for so many years, one might think that Nazis, Communists, leftism and censorship all go hand-in-hand.

Good job! thumbs up
Dongg
The way to have peace isn't to ban talking about things, it's to ban people with this mental disorder. They are the ones with the out of bounds issues, not people who simply want to engage in the exchange of ideas.
RoseHipster, ahhh... make a few comments and hide your profile.

You are correct the Moderator didn't say religious blogs. I believe it was some bickering that was the reason for their deletion or deleting comments.

Clearly some people are going to defend Jim's tactics but your statement is over-reaching what was being
censored.Does your preference demand retaliation too?


Can you find any comments from me on a religious blog?
You have stated "now you?"
Any proof?
I don't comment on religious blogs.
You are reading into something that doesn't exist.
The way to have peace isn't to ban talking about things, it's to ban people with this mental disorder.

Take it up with the Moderator.
Other than the loss of my blogs on politics and virus health, I've had no part of managements decision to remove those blogs.
Yep, C. Good points.
In counseling. with select, ego sufficient, non-psychotic folks, gentle frank discussions of their own therapy, ie defenses, and other details of technique, occasionally brings results, when stuck. In the right hands.
So yeah, that idea from Yahoo had merit. But the crowds on CS and other sites don't exactly represent love fests of health. Present company of course excluded.
Posting politics, is of necessity a grey area. Some are more cryptically sneaked in than others. I think the Cyberscrutinizer is doing just fine so far, with what I've seen magically vanish. And the worst offenders genuinely seem trying to substitute topics non politic. Kudos all around. The most severely impaired, well, perhaps not so much, sadly.
It's also a grey area as to how intensely syndromic a few are here, verses those who just are mostly with it, and may merely have moderately deep convictions, yet are able mostly to keep their wits about them.
So lets see how it all unfolds.
Personally, I've always preferred the occasional use of slight of hand/keyboard superficial trance induction, to attract, and to fight my battles, ---over too much of the really nasty stuff. Crowds of flies from honey, vs. vinegar, no?

But we should all wish it were a more perfect world. As I listen to certain Mssrs. Ron Carter and Eric Dolphy. Magic, indeed.

I thought that the moderators were serious, but it seems that they posted the warning and left. Nobody seems to check blogs and threads (although politics, conspiracy theories, etc. are sneaking in again) and they will probably remember to come back here in a couple of weeks, delete dozens of blogs and threads, ban several users and then leave again. It's not at all serious behaviour. I think that they've given up on the social part of the site - they only banned controversial topics that could bring problems to them, since all social media started with controlling the content that is posted on their sites.

I'm seriously thinking about leaving this site for good...
As eYe pointed out....
... apparently you regulars don't want to admit it...
The ch change was brought about by 3-5 turbo bloggers...and 2.) Mod has no feel for the blog page or moral high ground...see entire comment scroll, if ya please...2a.) the geezer blogger & or shut -in...has zero interest in 'dating'...other Peeps from thousands of miles away...if I'm wong-- there is private messaging & Lear jet Transport.

I don't comment on religious blogs.
You are reading into something that doesn't exist.

Now you? -is in reference to the censorship error, and ONLY in regards to this blog topic.
It allowed for the reader to know whether it was intentional or an error on your part.Therefore NOT an assumption.Which is slyly put as "reading into something that does not exist".
Non-existence and proof does always seem to be in demand by certain persons here,lol.

Now you? Does not require proof, or reading into it beyond this question? You do not even have any obligation to answer it.

About my coming and going on anyones' blog, no one was required to raise their hand to be excused.

I commented:
Have at it kids..( because it was getting political)
implies both, I was leaving and why.
Your error was my only reason to be here; to point it out.


wave B'bye.

Hopefully. This is a dating site and I come here for fun. What was being posted wasn't funny. I hope the moderators will put down their foot and enforce their own rules. If I wanted to read shite like this, I would join some wacko conspiracy site and I have no interest in doing so. wine
Censorship does not create a perfect world of loving all. It only pushes things farther underground. The old idea works well of working for your enemy so you know exactly what he is up to.
Dating is more than fun and games. Those who avoid opinions counter to their own are doomed in relationships. They matter. From the women who followed Manson, to those who marry a convict...to those who fight constantly with a mate...the time to find out things is when dating.
The PC crowd is of the opinion is we avoid everything, it will cease to exist. They are bat crazy to the point of Polosi wanting to...drat memory....anyone else?? Some wording with man in it..oh well..point lost. sigh..
Soon one will not be able to refer to a female dog as a b*tch. Or mail as mail.
The idea of a dating site is to get to know a person prior to actually meeting. If you dislike someones political views or general comments, guess that tells you to avoid contact. And if their remarks bother you, simple..pass over and dont read them!! Don't rely on Big Brother to erase something you dont like. Maybe someone else agrees because they ALREADY think the same way.handshake

This is something that can be picked up in private mail. What was posted here was beyond general comments.
Of course. Private mail is a great way to get to know your stalker.
KNenagh
I don't do private mail. I'm in a relationship and if I was single, a dating site is the last place I would look for someone.

Free speech doesn't mean no consequences. I'm glad the mods put their foot down. There are other sites for that type of posting.
