I joined 'disqus' several months ago. It's a service many news media use to allow readers to post comments. You create a profile and when you comment, your profile is referenced. It's great because you don't have to 'join' every media link just to leave a comment.
A couple of weeks ago DISQUS changed their delivery on news articles. Prior to this change, you could click an UP arrow or a DOWN arrow to register your opinion on something a commenter had said (much the same as the 'likes' on Facebook). Up and down votes were tallied and you could see which comments were getting the thumbs down.
Well now, the UP votes are counted.... but 'in the interest of keeping things positive' DISQUS no longer counts the down votes. I swear to God - this is the reason DISQUS gave for NOT showing the tally of negative replies. Can you say CENSORSHIP!
A few minutes ago I read the article at the link above. I knew what it said because I had watched Krauthammer totally nail Obama for his weak stance on the Russian invasion of the Ukraine on the panel on Special Report. From the link:
Charles Krauthammer responded on Special Report tonight saying, “The Ukrainians, and I think everybody, is shocked by the weakness of Obama’s statement. I find it rather staggering.”...“What he’s saying is we’re not really going to do anything and we’re telling the world,”
This is Tiananmen Square all over again - people fighting for their freedom against an oppressive regime, and this country sits idly by with our thumb up our a$$ and watches them die. Obama is a disgrace.
I have now been blacklisted from commenting on the National Review site, and MAYBE from any site that uses DISQUS as a commenting tool.
Yup..... this is the beginning of serious censorship, when we can no longer criticize Barack Hussein Obama.
p.s. Chuck.....I sure hope your income taxes are correct and ready to be 'reviewed' by the IRS
