Why was post about John B. And Cat B censored? Updated with answer.Submitted by borisimo on Tue, 03/30/2010 - 22:33
Why is it so much oftener now that when I go to look at posts of interest at the Daily Paul they have been censored?
The post seemed to me to not break any of the rules of the DP. It had information from both sides that was helpful to me. The people mentioned are already public figures, and therefore open to scrutiny, praise or criticism.
I really enjoyed the comments on that post both praising and criticizing these activists, and learned a lot about them and their activities. In my opinion it was worthwhile reading, educational and eye opening.
It would be of interest to other posters to see for what reasons posts are being censored. So why, please why, did the Daily Paul censor that post?

Apparently the post got pulled got flagged by the spam filter the OP made some edits to his own post. The spam filter didn't like it, and automatically unpublished it.
I took a look at the post. The revision, at the top of the post says,
IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED [name omitted] it appears was a liaison for the United Nations as recently as 2008
Okay, now, give me a break. WTF? IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED, it appears?
I don't mind discussing things, but I think it is extremely unfair for an anonymous poster to go spreading rumors about people who put their names on the line, and I don't like it. That is an unfair fight. How can you fight if you can't even see your accuser?
