Will the harassment on disqus ever stop?


Today a commenter admitted he’s been harassing me for months by flagging and downvoting my comments. I reported this to disqus but I’m sure they won’t do a damn thing.

We're "outlaws" banned from "News for Everyone" aka "News for the Echo Chamber"

It's Friday the 13th, several of us have been banned from "News for Everyone." Don't let the name fool you, it's "news" for an echo chamber of those who are opposed to reality, logic, dissent, and any different viewpoints or different opposing views.

Censored, Authoritarian, and Afraid

I've been given a "time out" at "Uncensored and Unafraid" or as I call it "Afraid and Scared." Or it could be "Censored, Authoritarian, and Afraid." Apparently I've been a very naughty commenter who argued with logic and fought back against attacks on myself and others. Oooooo I'm so bad. This is the thread, brace yourself for a good laugh. https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-uncensorednewsandviews/hannity_in_middle_of_bitter_gop_campaign_fight/

Why "I think" I got banned at Monday Music


I'm stating this for the record on why I believe I was banned at disqus channel Monday Music.

I posted there for a few days and was "unwelcomed" by some commenters there who don't like me. I was on my best behavior and was posting about mucic and was having fun. I didn't violate any of the TOS rules. 

I posted this song, "Colors and the Kids" by Cat Power. 



I later posted this song, "My Cat" by Jack off Jill. 


Both songs were marked as "Spam" and deleted. After the second song was deleted I asked the mod why? I was given this bullshit answer that it violated the disqus filter. Disqus doesn't filter song lyrics, only what posted, including the song title. The song "My Cat" is hardly offensive. I was told I was pestering the mods for asking why my posts got deleted. 

At the same time another commenter was posting. All of her posts were deleted and she was banned along with me. Her crime was being American Indian. She posted nothing offensive. The mod "Swamp Fox" read a conversation at my blog and questioned me about it. Hence I was also banned for posting at my own blog. 

Some snapshots of the conversation. My response to him before I was banned. 


After I was banned the commenters "rejoiced." I'm guessing my posted were flagged into oblivion because some adults can't get along with others.

Damned if I do, damned if I don't

Well this is a new one for me. I was invited by the mod of Community Council to have a discussion at this thread,
https://disqus.com/home/channel/communitycouncil/discussion/channel-communitycouncil/expect_resistance/

I only became aware of this thread because another commenter posted it to me. I'm banned at all Community Council (CC) channels, hence I don't go there or read anything posted at those channels. I wouldn't have known I was invited unless a fellow commenter told me about it. It was a passive aggressive invitation, not a direct invitation by the mod at CC. My disqus profile is public and she could have invited me by posting a link directly to me at my blog. She is NOT banned at my blog, therefore this would have been a direct line of communication that was already open.  


When I posted at the Community Council thread, I found it was impossible for me to post as "expect resistance" my disqus handle, because I was banned there. I happen to have another account to post a response. What would you do in this situation?

Instead of resolving the moderation issue the mod closed the thread without any resolution. I showed up for my public flogging and it was a fail on the mod's part to do anything constructive. The thread is closed and no more discussion.

Let's hash this out

There is a lot of fighting on disqus as most of us know. If you want to hash something out and get it off your chest now is the chance. Let's do this.

Come and take it

How many of you have seen this pro-choice sign?



Do you know the history of it? 

"Inspired by the historic "Come And Take" battle flag of the Texas Revolution, this version of the unofficial logo of the movement to repeal Texas' severely restrictive abortion laws was conceived and designed by longtime Texas Troublemakers Carrie Collier-Brown and Cole Latimer." http://store.bumperactive.com/come-and-take-it-uterus-sticker-pack-of-three/

"Come and Take it" battle flag of the Texas Revolution. 



There are t-shirts and stickers you can purchase for your very own. 





Contrary to what some anti-choicers believe this has nothing to so with communism and everything to do with defending a woman's right to chose. I hope this clears up the myth about this.
