Yahoo censors answers to Jane Fonda's online poll
Yahoo ^ | May 12, 2007 | Vanity

Posted on 05/16/2007 11:41:52 AM PDT by 3AngelaD

Remeber the Jane Fonda poll on the Yahoo site a couple of weeks ago? I contributed to the answers, and here's what I got back from Yahoo, which removed my response.

It’s a crock, but I’m not surprised. Great answer by the way.

Your problem was that you responded rightfully to a radical anti-American, anti-military socialist leftist. Yahoo is a bit to the left, you know :-)

I contested the removal and asked them to point out to me which of the guidelines I violated. They haven’t gotten back to me because I didn’t violate any of them. They removed my comment because they disagreed with it.

"Here's a link to the guidelines"

You ignored an over riding guideline, i.e., you interacted with Liberals. It's always wrong, always.

Yahoo thinks that American Air Force refers to a terrorist organization.

I would send them an e-mail and threaten them with a lawsuit as they have violated your 1st amendment rights and they have violated the 14th as well. Claim censorship and that they violated their own rules as well. That might get a reaction from them anyway.

It might be fun to send again what you sent before, but preface it with, "Please forward to executive in charge of customer service" and ask why you haven't gotten a response.

My response was somewhat more caustic ... I didn’t receive any notice like you did. I wonder if my response was deleted ...

If I am alive when Fonda dies,there will be a party at my house,w/champagne.

If any person near where she is buried wants to make a dollar they can receive specimen bottles and charge $25 to pour them over the grave. They will get rich.

Except Yahoo isn’t the government. The 1st Amendment prohibits the government from limiting free speech, not private enterprises such as Yahoo. Of course they violated their own rules. The are liberal hypocrites. I look forward to continued dialog with the 14-year-olds loser-nerds that run it.

I responded ... This Vietnam combat vets parents taught him to love his country and not be a stinking traitor. Something your parents obviously did not teach you

Apparently we can’t. Now because of the lefties having orgasms over Jerry Falwell, we have to behave so we are not hypocrites. They suck all the fun out of life...

You should have left out the “I was taught.” They were looking for incomplete sentences.

You violated the guideline about “safe and useful”, because you mentioned “weapons”, which puts liberals out of continence.

I love it!!! not what yahoo did... what you said!!! I am a child of the 60's and greatly disliked her then... more now. The truth hurts and yahoo doesn't want to make waves.

Great response friend.

By implication, the same applies to Yahoo when seeking public comment.

Good answer, remarkably restrained under the circumstances, and a damned silly pull.

What a fanstastic idea, but why wait until she's dead?

I dont see how a Patriot like Falwell could even be copmpared in the same post with Jane Fonda-Traitor.

A Holy man compared to a common traitor and slut.

Great comment - no reason for Yahoo to remove it except blatant censorship of a leftist persuasion.....

I, too, was taught never to betray America to our enemies, so I guess Yahoo wouldn’t except my submission either......

I’ve never been banned at DU. And I don’t know what WA is. I’ve never been banned anywhere. I guess I’m letting down our side, and will have to become more strident. Here at FR, I am fairly well gruntled.

It wasn’t directed at you, just the general topic of the post. :-) I’ve been banned at both of those 2 liberal sites before for discussing conservative points of view.

Yahoo has the means and the will to enforce politically correct expressions of thought. It is only a dim reflection of the totalitarian thought control which the left is currently implementing.

That's the thing that p*sses me off about liberals - they just can't be honest and say what they really mean.

Their answer should have read: We have deleted your post because we considered it to be a right-wing fundamentalist attack upon a well-meaning, misunderstood, smarter than you enlightened liberal.
