Recently I had another article deleted on a nameless news aggregation site., taking with it, everyone's comments and debate. Thats a lot of content to go poof, as if it never happened.
Yeah it was a bit trollish, as I was condemning the GOP for their tolerance of open racism from their party.
Some people tied to claim that I meant only GOPrs are racist. Which is very far from the truth. I'm saying the GOP tolerate it openly, the dems do not.
Being comfortable saying racist things like glen beck does, is something that hasnt existed in america for 50 years and I say the gop have set us back 50 years.
AT any rate I guess this hurt the feelings of the oh sooo thin skinned GOP. That absolutely cant stand being challenged with facts.
ANd yes I can understand why they would be. Its not nice to be shown you are a bigot. It has happened to me before.
But that doesnt make it not true.
I understand why the vine lets the community moderate and this PROBLEM has been discussed an d ignored before.
Still I have the question, does minority moderation belong on a NEWS agrigator website?
lets spin back to newsvine 1790
all posts anti slavery would be deleted. ALl posts showing how slaves are mistreated would be deleted. Is news only valuable when it doesnt offend a large minority of the public?
scroll back another 20 years and we would not be able to complain about the Brits without getting deleted?
