Why was post about John B. And Cat B censored? Updated with answer.

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 The spam filter didn't like it, and automatically unpublished it.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?

Valor -- The Better Part Of Indiscretion

Drama Aside --

This was one of the best threads on DP in weeks. I don't have a dog in this fight ( unless maybe it's paul4won, unleashed -- I trust her BS meter in the context of that debate).

When we shack up for liberty, may our tin roofs never rust, our windows remain open, breezy and transparent, and our motley band never stagnate as contrived Shiny Happy People Holding Hands.

PS. The domestic tranquility I believe in requires vigilence to secure against controled demolition ... and frequent recurrence to fundamental principles of liberty.

When Crushed By Confusion ...

... it's time to pull one's head out of one's asset and reflect, a wise man once said:

"I will gladly choose freedom any day, with all its pain and suffering, over the false unity that the GOP attempts to display.
*
The most important thing now is to learn what we can from this experience for next time. The takeover of the GOP - for those who choose to pursue it - will be a long, slow process. On that road, patriots will face many more issues and tests like this one. The most important thing is that though this process, we maintain our principles the whole way through. As Dr. Paul said in his speech at the Rally - even if you make what you think is just one little exception, just one time, you've sacrificed 100% of the principal. It is a slippery slope.
In his introduction to Freedom Under Siege, Lew Rockwell writes of Ron Paul:
Greatness is often lonely, and it is never easy to oppose colleagues or the statist special interests who wanted Ron Paul to act as their errand boy to the Treasury. They were all amazed, then aghast, at his refusal to play their game.
New Congressmen are always advised, in shady Sam Rayburn's words, "To get along, go along." They're told, "Don't make waves. Vote for the other guy's spending bills, and he'll vote for yours. Do as you're told and you'll be taken care of."
How easy to become part of the system and reap the rewards of power. For virtually every Congressman, there is not even a pause before he plunges into the trough. But that ws not why Ron Paul went to Washington. He sought a great rostrum for freedom, and he never sold out.
After seeing the tremendous pressure put on people in real politics, live and in person, it puts me in flat out awe that Dr. Paul ever made it this far. He talks a tough game but he walks it courageously and unwaveringly. This past week I saw first hand exactly why Dr. Paul is so special. Standing for what he believes in takes the kind of courage that most people simply have not yet developed.
That kind of courage takes practice. This was a first test, and it will only be a failure if we learn nothing from it."

That topic helped me too

and I don't appreciate it being censored. I am coming to DailyPaul less and less. My liberty site does not censor. Sorry.

I also don't know why the count of users down on the right is often higher than if you actually count the users.

I'm curious, what did the

I'm curious, what did the post say? If the OP wants to repost or email it to me, I'd like to see it.

Overall I am disappointed to see the infighting that is developing in this movement. I have worked with Catherine and John and believe them to be hard-working, sincere patriots. I am honored to be part of their organization. Go ahead and throw mud at me for associating with them, if it makes you feel any better.

By the way, what was confirmed is Catherine Bleish did work for the Santa Barbara branch of the UN/UNESCO. Confirmed by Catherine Bleish on her own website.

Tried to place the link her but der spam filter says it is VERBOTEN.

P.S. If anyone has a private jet and would like to fly Catherine Bleish and her friends around to bash Ron Paul she would like you to contact her.

FROM BLEISH'S SITE:

I’m looking for a private flight IF POSSIBLE, at the lowest cost possible.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

1. If you know of anyone who flies private jets – here is what I need:
