USam_VoteLThe House presented its health care reform bill today. So naturally, the top story at HuffPo this evening, at this moment, written by Damn…I mean Dame Arianna herself  is “Huffington Post Game Changers! Vote!”.

You may criticize Arianna for her opportunism, misrepresentation, fear of criticism and enormous feet but she does have all the depth of a cookie sheet.  So there!

And since she wrote it, it is FULLY MODERATED AND SANITIZED FOR YOUR PROTECTION. Huh? A meaningless poll needs to be fully moderated?

So, I think it is only appropriate that PlanetPOV holds a poll tonight as well. Please vote for which of the list below you feel is the most lame of the changes at Huffington Post (you only get to vote once so please, talk it over with your attorneys and loved ones first, you wouldn’t want to make a mistake on something this important):

The combination of troll diversions, pending delays and unjustifiable scrubbing has made it to much of a chore to have a rational discussion about an issue on HP. I like to discuss politics, share facts and try to inject a little wit and sarcasm to give people a laugh, but all the good stuff gets fucking scrubbed and forwarded to Bill Maher!

The bastards! Your best material stolen and sent to Maher!

Not to worry. Here we publish your material and THEN send it to Maher!

What! Maher is getting my material for free! Never!

Rational among liberals? Interesting concept. Many of us have highly attuned intellectual capabilities which seem coupled to more aggressive infantile responses at times. Probably due to having been frustrated so often in life trying to make a good point with facts. But from what I’ve seen, we’re trying here. I’m hoping to see more of the thinkers from HP over here today and tonight. But if you read our discussion on HP addiction, you’ll know it may be hard for some of them.

I’m sorry!

I did not invite you? I certainly meant to!

You are most welcome.

Today is HuffNo Friday. Please try to resist going to Huff at all today. We are trying to impinge their page clicks.

In point of fact, this worked quite effectively some months ago when conducted off another blog.

It will take a few weeks to get it going full roar.

Why was atomic splash banned? He was innocuous compared to so many others. And yet they just let the trolls keep rolling along.

I was on the threads one night when he complained that he got a nasty e-mail from one of the mods, and he felt it had something to do with the banter between him and AC. Then he was banned about a week later. Him and AC would really get into it sometimes. She, of course, apparently had the leeway to spew some really hateful garbage sometimes.

I always thought that she was a plant, a Repuglican plant and not a Clinton supporter later turned PUMA as she claimed. Her stories changed like the weather and eventually she just turned really ugly.

Thanks. And then I survived a couple of months dumping on her for her youthful ignorance and arrogance. (I also used something like AbsolutelyTotallyAgree when I wanted to go for the jugular with her) Sometimes I get the feeling she’s a malevolent gnome weighing outside of the acceptable ratios in a sorority because her momma had belonged and daddy wanted her out of the house.

Just stopping in to say hello & goodnight. HuffPo needs to get it’s priorities straight w/its moderation. It allows racist and foul comments to go unchecked,but it’s regulars it moderates the chit out of.

Yep. Pretty sad story. I see coyotes all the time when I go out with my dogs. We keep our distance and don’t mistake them for friends. But they’re not scary to me.

I found this post of hers in my inbox this morning and thought, there she blows again. She is getting more Repuglican by the click. Her logic is beyond me and I have no idea how she travels from A to B but imagine it must be some sort of Dr. Who time machine as she is convinced she knows about the future.

Her logic is personal vanity which means she is an opportunists who wants fame and money. This whole game changers series is the most vain and sanctimonious piece of shite I’ve ever seen in the blog world.

What about the true heroes in America like first responders and others that put their lives on the line each day?

I guess they are not famous enough or the beautiful people Aryanna wants to draw favor from for to boost her ego.

Where’s the all the above selection?

Aryanna Nation has become a bunch of self affirming automatons with trolls sprinkled in to generate clicks and giggles. Most reasonable people are stuck holding back a tsunami of faux outrage and troll hatred.
