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.

Just goes to prove an almost unanimous hunch that AH never strayed from her Republican roots and doesn’t want upset her RW buddies.

It’s pretty ridic. It’s surprising how she lets Shannon Moore bash Palin, but even try to bitch about the Wassilly ho on Shannon’s thread, and again, shut down. Whatever.

Exactly, whatever. You can bitch about her here to your hearts content. Try it, it feels cleansing after the Huffy straightjacket we were all made to wear for years.

Yup my dad is happy though I don’t follow the sport anymore. It’s only the NHL and NFL for this sports fan.

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.

LOL. Yep. There she is with her two companions! I really find it stunning that she hasn’t been banned. I truly believe that the mods are frat boy types who are bored. I think they scrub comments just to get a reaction out of the commenter and they leave this shit just because they can get away with it.

Anyone heard of the Stanford prison experiment, Philip Zimbardo:

This is the same type of thing at work.

I hear ya. It looks like they removed her photo, but left her silly ass comments.

Sheesh…. I resent it as well. I suppose it’s just more proof that the Queen is in to the $$ much more than the news of the day or reasonable commentary.

Night all.

ps………kevin, I’ll try really hard to stay off the damn site on Friday, but it’s harder than i thought. 🙁

Escriba – she is using a sock after being banned last week as “Patricia Cutterling”. Different porn-type avatar, different woman in avatar……..same woman using both ids.

Oh, and I saw the cow. blech. No class.

Holy Cow! and I do mean “cow.”

I used the words “shabby journalism” in regard to that phony Bill Clinton headline (“Wish I’d Been Carried Out of the White House in a Coffin” Words he never said.) and they never saw daylight. Scrubbed.

But bare boobs are good for business, apparently.

Does Aryanna claim to be a feminist? How does this, and stories about pole dancers, and wardrobe malfunctions, etc. fit in to her view of what makes a woman womanly?

Anything for a buck.

I spent about ten minutes on PuffHo today. That was too much. I definitely won’t be there on Friday–or possibly any other day at this rate.

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.

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.

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.

BJ was a bugger for filth, sometimes he was scrubbed, sometimes he was banned and more often than not, his comments stayed for hours much to everyone’s annoyance. When he was scrubbed our replies went with him and for no reason at all, our next comments ended up in pending hell.

I’m also convinced he loved every minute of it, he just kept coming back.

I was always highly amused when Volvo would shoot him down like a clay pigeon.

Well bearing your comment in mind, I do hope that Hell is fully automated and the worthless [email protected] can line up on a fast moving conveyor belt for his last 15 minutes of fame. I detest him.

oh btw, if you accuse them of censorship, they will ban you as with any direct digs at the Empress with no clothes.

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.

“Crimes Against the State” Yup, that pretty much covers it all.

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.

“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 🙂

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