I posted a link to CNN news on it, it got deleted. I did multiple searches using multiple keywords and combos and can't see anything about it.
Considering FReepers usually post breaking news within minutes of it being announced, I cant figure out what's going on. Software glitch? Deliberate censorship?
No. Its you personally.
'djf' does sound kinda made up. Very suspicious.
it’s not paranoia if they really are out to get you...
You posted it with the wrong headline and without any text, but a proper link. Too many clicks to fix it, sorry.
Is there even a thread on it? I felt stupid to even try to post it to breaking because I figured there would already be ten sources...
This is a good time to remind everyone to fill out the fields properly when posting.
Sorry...These kids were asking for trouble....not much sympathy here.
Alot of people, members and lurkers, watch FR for breaking news. It makes no sense to pull a thread instead of the mod just asking me to fix it.
I could understand it if there were already four threads on it, but as far as I can tell, there isn’t even a single thread yet...
There has been alot of haggling over the “Breaking News” category lately and I wish somebody would come up with some guidelines...
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin sneezes and there are 27 posts about it...
Let me see if I’m reading you correctly. You figured there to be ten threads about it already, so you posted a vanity . . . and when the vanity was pulled, you posted another one about it?
It was NOT a vanity. It was posted in News/Activism. It had a link to the CNN story...
What, you don’t think it’s important news? You don’t think other FReepers would be interested?
If I was interested in your opinion, I would have asked.
But I’m not.
So I didn’t.
Crawl back under your rock, I’m just trying to find out how to help this place run efficiently.
WTF is up with the Iran/hikers story?You did ask for my opinion, and I'll add to it--you are not thinking clearly this morning.
No, learn how to fill out the posting forms correctly. Really it’s that simple.
Oh yea, this is a private site the owners can allow whatever suits them to be posted or not - not censorship at all.
this thread is making me chuckle
The headline says What.
Did he really post WTF and now the moderators “cleaned” it up?
I agree with other posters. The OP seems to be one of many who want to get a story into Breaking News ASAP.
Yesterday I laughed at someone so anxious to be the first, that they double posted the headline. Then, to make matters worse, they posted a day old story.
Wait....I know this one.
One day three men were hiking along and came upon a raging, violent river. They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do it.
The first man prayed to God saying, "Please God, give me the strength to cross this river." Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours.
Seeing this, the second man prayed to God saying, "Please God, give me the strength and ability to cross this river." Poof! God gave him a rowboat and he was able to row across the river in about three hours.
The third man had seen how this worked out for the other two, so he also prayed to God saying, "Please God, give me the strength, ability and intelligence to cross this river." And Poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map, then walked across the bridge into Iran.
