Well, I see either

crybaby left wingers begged MediaBistro to delete the Obama scandals thread or they did it on their own...which clearly demonstrates their political loyalty.
This is precisely analogous with the reason for the investigations of the Oversight and Government Reform committee, the Ways and Means committee, et al., i.e., cover ups and hiding the actions, failures to act or improper actions of the Obama administration from public scrutiny.
This was the most current...and most important..of any current event ever posted to this forum. It addressed public trust...or lack of same...in the US government.
Even if MediaBistro chooses not to support free speech, encourage responsible journalism and encourage necessary investigation, this is not the end of this issue.

either that, or they clearly saw your effort to dominate
the board by sheer force of numbers of posts..however ridiculous they might be..as something that didn't need to go on and on and on..
they realized your NPD is out of control, and decided to step in and clean it out..
for which the rest of us are eternally grateful..
let this be a lesson to you..

The only "lesson," pal,
is that you don't have the intelligence to comment on the topics. All you can do is hurl ad hominem...as you've amply proved in the past.
But I don't need this...

All due respect orth,
People can post all they want. If that's why the post was taken down, shame on MB. Everyone can choose to read/not read, respond/not respond or start a new thread.
Since when has MB moderating anything here?
It's kind of weird. But, whatever.

The Republic itself
...is threatened by whether or not cruiser's thread remains here?
(insert eyeballs rolling skyward)
Every now and then it occurs to me that I'm just too vain.
And then I read yet another self-imprtant cruiser post and realize that I hardly know vanity at all.
Cruiser, the Republic will survive or not without you. You ain't the glue that holds anything together. Well, maybe absurd human vanity. But nothing else is threatened by your presence, or lack of it.

You know cruise;
when you come swinging out of the box with "The only "lesson," pal"...that ranks right up there with 'you don't know squat dearie...' The patronizing is downright nauseating.
It's not just that you insult people all the time, which you do, but then you couple it with that "All you can do is hurl ad hominem" and then insult people. Duh.
All that being said--I thought we were having a pretty reasonable discussion....especially when it comes to 'Congress wasting time on committees when it should propably just appoint a 'Special Prosecutor...' to investigate the scandals.
Why did MB pull the thread? I don't know. I would hope it wasn't just because you posted so many times (I didn't think there was a 'limit'--especially when someone like you feels so passionate about a subject)...and I sure hope MB didn't think you 'went over the line' somewhere'...HELL...you go over the line all the time and it doesn't offend me (lol).
On the other hand--Let's just move on. We can still argue/agree/disagree regarding the current "scandals"...we are by no means done with the topic(s).
All the best. And I mean that.

And You Were SOOOOOO Close!
A couple more posts and Obama would be out! Forced to resign by the sheer weight of your cutting and pasting.

It is very odd that we haven't seen a message from MB as to why the thread was pulled.
But then again, FB doesn't allow the posting of certain web address.
And recently a kid was arrested for a posting a rap on FB.
And another was arrested because he was asking questions.
Censorship abounds, doesn't surprise me that it happened here, On a board that is supposed to cater to journalist, reporters, editors and writers. We like it when we are silenced.
And don't throw flames. No one else thinks this is censorship?

It's not censorship.
"ENTERING A BULLETIN BOARD OF mediabistro.com WILL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT ENTER mediabistro.com BULLETIN BOARDS."
That's pretty clear. It's their 'Sandbox'. Don't like it, go somewhere else. I like it here because of the people (Yea, I know, what the hell are you smoking mp??) I agree with many, have a few problems with a few, and get disgusted by a handful. In other words, it's politics.

cruiztwit..you get "insults amd ad hominem" from me..
for two reasons..
firstly, because as a general rule, your posts are not worthy of serious consideration and response..
and secondly, because of what you said about my late mother way back when..
i'm irish, and we never forget...

Can speak for the rest of us "left wingers" but I
stopped actually reading that thread days ago.
But I think Cruiser should write an opinon piece
(850 words) about this for a major media
outlet. Be sure to note the censorship.

mb has shown their "political loyalty" by banning right leaning posters- yet allowing left-wing posters to slander, attack and use language that is inappropriate.
the obama scandals thread is gone yet obamanadoes still exist.
these double standards and allowing left-wing posters to post amuk is the reason why few post here anymore.

until MB responds, all of this is just speculation.

Or a muck.
Or a truck.
Perhaps a duck
