More BlueBoard censorship
This morning, I made three attempts to post a response to R. Paul Martin's BlueBoard, but he has apparently added me to his growing list of the banished, a list that includes active Pacifica and WBAI board members, along with anyone who dares to criticize his despotic mismanagement of that old forum.
Include the names of outcasts like Michel Cohen, Carolyn Birden, Cerene Roberts in a post and it is re-routed to the generalissimo's screen for "approval." It may eventually make it through, but then it is usually outdated. If you misspell these names, they will make it, but then you have given the despot a foaming at the mouth hissy fit. Isn't free speech wonderful? Isn't it amazing that people who purport to be supporters of Lew Hill's concept so completely miss the point?
Anyway, my post doesn't really warrant repeating here, except as an example of how ludicrous the little guy has become.
Here's the innocuous response I attempted to post on the BlueBoard. It has to do with today's WBAI piece in the NY Times:
And here is a brief e-mail note I sent to R. Paul Martin when I realized that my post is in his banishment bin:
Re: Frivolous censorship
R. Paul, you will find two or three posts entered by me today. Please do not publish them as I have had my fill of your idiotic censorship.
I will have more to say about this on my own blog, where free speech is practiced 24-7.
