Wow Censored!
A Tic In The Mind's Eye ^ | 12/31/2009 | Joseph Speranzella SFO

Posted on 12/31/2009 9:37:42 AM PST by Jihadi Du Jour

Got a post censored from Free Republic for a political humor post about the wikipedia update that said Rush Limbaugh was dead.

How is that any different than this?

I guess Free Republic isn't that free after all...

Sometimes things are deleted because they’re just dumb.

Your post neither indicated a whit of humor, nor accuracy. The original headline only quoted the end ‘fact’ as you intended. Your ‘humor’ sucks and you are a tasteless individual, period. Go away.

Worth repeating.

Your post neither indicated a whit of humor, nor accuracy. The original headline only quoted the end ‘fact’ as you intended. Your ‘humor’ sucks and you are a tasteless individual, period.

If this was the thread I thought it was, a big thanks to the Mods. I'm sure it is a tough job to keep this above the gutter of 12 year old humor.

The title of the deleted post was just plain tasteless and upsetting to too many people.

If you don’t “get” that, maybe you’re in the wrong forum.

Censorship is when the government says you can’t speak, not when a private citizen says they don’t want something on their privately owned property.

You deserved it. “Rush Limbaugh Is Dead” for a headline with nothing more should be pulled like an impacted wisdom tooth. Youre lucky you werent banned or suspended.

Actually you violated the cardinal rule of posting articles, and that is to use the original headline. You only posted the first part, not the “... or not” part. Also FR isn’t a government agency, it’s a privately owned website and they can “censor” all they want according to their posting standards.

On what planet is private property “free”? You’re free to act to the extent that the owner of the site allows you that freedom. If you don’t like the policy, show yourself out.

Yeah, well try being an Admin Mod for a while. You lose your sense of humor rather quickly.

Trafficking on the possible death of Rush Limbaugh on Free Republic. Hmmmmmm....

Maybe it's within the rules but it is what it is and I don't like it. Just sayin'.

Oops. (well, it’s not really my fault)

I found out that the link to the website leads you to just one cartoon, or poster.

The link “this?” actually leads to the real website.

I guess the author screwed up multiple times. So much so that I can’t tell what the links are even for. They don’t pertain to the original issue. (unless something is farther down on his website, which I really don’t want to waste time reading)

The supposed link to your website takes one to a poster of Uncle Sam.

The other link “this?” takes one to your website.

Perhaps you should not have started drinking so early for New Year’s Eve.

I’d like to see all of these stupid “satirical” headlines pulled. They’re a) misleading, b) never funny. They’re created just to stir the sh*t and drive traffic to someone’s lame blog by tricking people into clicking through.
