HuffNo Friday 02

I know that AdLib has some definite ideas on the next HuffNo Friday, and I don’t want to steal his thunder, but I also don’t want to repeat what he wrote me because obviously he is still cogitating on the subject.

But he told me he is crunched just now and might not get to post on the subject tonight, so this is a teaser:

We all agree that HuffNo Friday is a fine concept, yes?    So my question to y’all is the same:

What can we do to max out buy in from the members here?    I observe HuffNo Friday the way I ate fish sticks every Friday as a child.   Catsup.    That is the key there.   Red sugar poured over food.

So how to get everybody as enthused as am I?    And more to the point, how do we draw more of our conferes from that which we shall not name?   (Huffington Post)

I am perfectly ready to get my moniker burned.  The last one had 500 fans.    Sigh.    This one has less than 30.   No big deal to move past that.

You may not actually believe this, but I assure you, it is well within our power to impact Huff’s numbers, such that they would have to notice.   It happened before, let’s make it happen again.

    Well I have a Skype video call with my father in a minute. If I don’t see you later, take care and wish you all a good day. *waves*

    Most of my comments go to pending and never get posted. So, I’ll try where I can!

    I find it particularly interesting that they scrub anything negative about McCain and Palin. Crazy.

    Yanks win it!

    I’ve got some spare socks (it’s easy to add new ones). I’ve been able to get a few p l a n e t p o v s in posts without getting scrubbed or banned so far. I’m happy to boycott on Fridays too — it’s good for me.

    I’d like to point out an extreme example of HuffPo hypocrisy. There is a user called KimTorrent whose avatar is porn shot of a woman’s gigantic bosoms. All the comments are sexual allusions. I reported this profile earlier today and just checked it. It’s still there.

    Don’t believe me? Or just want to see? Here’s a link to the profile. The picture disappeared from there but it’s still visible if you click on a comment.


    I am not a prude but I’m not crazy about porn and I DEEPLY resent having my innocuous comments scrubbed while this porn troll is allowed to roam freely with impunity. I believe the HP modz are just jerkoffs in a backroom somewhere having a good time and pulling a mickey on all of us.

    I wish that I could help but am now an ex-HuffyPuffy and most of the regulars are either banned or have moved on, I seem to know fewer people there on the odd occation I have gone to read read a stupid post by the Empress or Naomi Klein. Sorry.

    I’m willing to sacrifice either of my two “semi-normal” socks for getting the point across. How can we continue to constern the censors (let’s not kid each other and call them moderators, it’s a hypocritical title)? Try seeing how long calling it “HuphKnow”? Can we HeavHo at the HuphKnow? Calling out those who already know us to “return to the planet of their point of view”? And redirecting them to the jump link?

    We recognize the need for creativity on this, as each week the inquisitors at HP will find ways to crack down further on insurrection. I forgot what word I used today that got a message pulled, but it was friggin’ innocuous, but it’s on the list.

    • bitohistory says:

      FM, Does anyone even know “the list”? It is a guessing game for me. I was never invested like many of you here, but in my short time I think I spent more time on a “24hr time out” than I did commenting.

      • Kalima says:

        It’s just the stupid word filter they installed last year but when I was still there, you couldn’t use McCain so he became McDoddery or McGrumpy as with all the other candidates in the Primaries. Dead, death,kill, bombs or bombing, idiot, Kiss my German arse, a favourite of mine, they changed the no-no words every week or just added to them to the point of sheer bewilderment for most of us and no it made no sense then and it doesn’t now. Huff practices blatant censorship and needs to be exposed as such.

      • FeloniousMonk says:

        It’s a learned thing, but it’s always morphing and expanding. That’s where I get hit (see, another word on the list, action verbs are really taboo) when I use a perfectly everyday word which in one usage out of ten may be an agressive or derogative usage (“ugly” is an ugly term there, but you can say “asses”)

        I never got any notices, and no suspensions. I just discovered that the blade of the gillotine had dropped and my head was in the basket. Of course, I was fucking with Arianna and the inquisitors then, too, so to speak. Crimes against the state, immediate summary execution.

      • escribacat says:

        LOL. Doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to getting a timeout. My last comment that went to pending went there because of the word “citizen” I think. Pretty shocking word.

        • bitohistory says:

          “because of the word ‘citizen’ I think” That’s what I never could figure out. Right after Sen Kennedy’s death I quouted some thing form his book. In the quote was the word death and it was scrubbed and I had to go sit in a corner for hours. I guess I should be glad I never quoted E.A Poe. I would have been banned :-)

        • FeloniousMonk says:

          I’d raise Kane over that one, if I was you.
