A few weeks ago I started a new category on my blog for censorship and forbidden books. This week I encountered a hilarious example of ‘censorship’ in online world. I came across a site with a post on Ending Violence Against Men. As I strongly oppose all forms of violence, I decided to join into the discussion. However something weird started happening. A few of my comments got posted and were ‘awaiting moderation’, and then they quietly disappeared from that page. That’s weird, I thought, as I could not see anything offensive in my comments. So I reposted them again – and again my comments quietly disappeared after moderation with no explanation or any other message from the moderator . I gave up after 3rd attempt and decided to present that site with the first award from my blog – Gold Teeth Denture Award for improved chewing, as, speaking in Mark Twain’s words, this moderator’s baby teeth obviously found my comments too chewy.
My ‘chewy’ comments are provided below.
