Title: Daily Mail has banned me
Post by: EvadingGrid on Sep 19, 2019, 01:21:55 pm
Daily Mail has banned me again.

They let me login, post comments on articles that are "not moderated", but do not publish the comment.

Previously, they would refuse to publish anything on "moderated articles", or wait until the story was dead and then publish my comment.


Daily Mail now has a Remainer Editor, but a No Deal Brexiteer readership.

By God man! Did you dare offend one single person? Cause I know I haven't. I haven't done anything bad ever in my life.

A few years ago they banned me for an entire year . . .
My crime was to have the top rated comment, and the comment was a quote of Winston Churchill.

From the days of Spartacus, Weishophf, Karl Marx, Trotski, Belacoon, Rosa Luxenburg, and Ema Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite recognizable role in the tragedy of the French revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th Century. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

Just goes to show how fake it all is . . .

And how do I go about banning you from Global Gulag?

And granted they do not publish things that they think they do not like  .... (sic).

They just don't publish, even some of the most benign comments I have put up.
So I have had to figure that:

They aren't modded but are looked at in batch before being published, and a window for publishing is closed, even when the
"comments for this article are now closed." is not yet up.

"...Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island or lose the war..

If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.

But if we fail, then the whole world,
including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science."

And is preceded by something in the vein of:
"The Battle for France is over; the battle for/of Britain is now beginning."

He did actually make this speech, though there are reports that he never made it to the Commons, and recorded it only in hindsight for posterity, perhaps his lengthy tome, "Memoirs of the Second World War" in 6 volumes.
This recorded version (bold text above) is available in The World at War, ep 'Alone', I think it is. Circa 1974.
The non-highlit text does not feature in TWAW episode.
Always good for a bit of approximately accurate history.

Try REPLYING to already posted comments by others.


That may work for you. That's what I do. Let me know.

Now I can post on some articles and not others . . . .

The articles that do not attract much interest and are unmoderated I can post. The articles that are moderated, I can not post - and I do not get email notification that my comment has been rejected.


Some sophisticated selective censorship, that is adaptive and mobile to keep it covert.
