"Content on the Daily Paul is the opinion of the original poster, not necessarily of the Daily Paul"

To add to a post earlier directed at Jon, every post made to the DailyPaul contains this verbage in search engines such as Google, therefore even though the site may be private property, one would technically not be trespassing or amassing liability upon the site itself. The original poster is the one supplying their "opinion" which should be protected by the First Amendment if such a disclaimer is going to attach and indemnify the site of agreement or support, right?

Read my post again and then yours....

you can agree with yourself.

If my home was a symbol of freedom and acceptance, denying your right to be there would negate my symbolic stance.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Please Watch

what goes on here closely. It is getting creepy. It sucks when we have to wake each other up to keep it honest. Fishy has been banned from posting and I have had several posts 403'd though I don't know why.

skippy

Do you think that you have a right to be here?

Do you have a right to maintain a presence on Michael Nystrom's property.

Does he not have the right to eject you from his property?

lol

It's not a right, it's a privilege to be here.

Yes, as the owner of private property (this defining lawful control), Michael has the right to do as he wishes.

However, common sense says.....

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

If you do not have a right to be here...

then neither Michael Nystrom, nor his moderators are violating your rights.

You said it yourself, you do not have the right to be here.

I am aware of what I said,

glad you are able to read.

If you don't already see the glaring contradiction here...

then you aren't firing on all cylinders.

Cheers.

Indeed

The contradiction is that this is a place for freedom, acceptance, and tolerance - otherwise, it would not have people like me, or a thousand others here.

Glad you were able to justify yourself...

Na zdrovie.

If I Wanted People To Visit

me and my house AND HELP PAY THE MORTGAGE, I wouldn't be a hard nosed jerk to them while they visited.

skippy

That is a very good point.

All of this censorship will result in the drying up of donations and paid memberships on the DP.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Sounds like a good plan, if

Sounds like a good plan, if one were so inclined.....

Maybe That's What Jon Wants

I am beginning to think he is working as one of Obama's trolls. Not even sure it IS Jon anymore. Nothing surprises me anymore. Maybe "they" took over DP during the Boston raid. Now how's THAT for a conspiracy theory?

skippy

Does the 'd' in your name stand for delusional?

Because if you really believe that, then you are delusional.

When I suggested that I got 10 upvotes =D

Conspiracy is bread and butter for the DP community.

I really pity poor Jon. Taking a lot of heat from the tin foil wearers. People really can't act like adults on the internet can they?

Look at Fishy...her every post screams " ME ME ME!!!" ...its a little sad...she doesn't even seem to realize what she is doing wrong...

you seem to think you have

the handle on how the DP has ran for years
people who have been here longer know it runs the way it does
and yet you think you know more about it than them
how arrogant of you
if you can't see,then maybe you should open your eyes and read
go back a few years,check out search tab,see for yourself
all the topics that have been posted by members here
but i bet you won't do that,you just go along with your smear campaign
of everyone here,and you think you are right,when in fact you are totally wrong,but just keep them blinders on,you seem to enjoy them

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Conspiracy Theories by Cass Sunstein/Adrian Vermeule

http://warontreason.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/SSRN-id10...

Written in 2008.

Some strong language: Because those who hold conspiracy theories typically suffer from a “crippled epistemology,” in
accordance with which it is rational to hold such theories, the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups.

From Page 14:

II. Governmental Responses

What can government do about conspiracy theories? Among the things it can do, what should it do? We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. (3) Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy
theories. (4) Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. (5) Government might engage in informal communication with such parties, encouraging them to help. Each instrument has a distinctive set of potential effects, or costs and benefits, and each will have a place under imaginable conditions.
However, our main policy idea is that government should engage in cognitive infiltration of the groups that produce conspiracy theories, which involves a mix of (3), (4) and (5).

Liberty is defined by its only characteristic..

Liberty.

If you have to ask permission, if your abilities are granted, if your voice is censored... well.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Lets post some girl on girl

Lets post some girl on girl porn here while we're at it, yeah?

After all, its not liberty if you can't post whatever you like.

Terrible reasoning. A common problem on these boards.

These DP guidelines must have been written for the likes of you.

" This site may contain adult language and adult concepts. If you are offended by such content, or feel you may be offended by such content, point your browser to a different site IMMEDIATELY. "

What Was?

The meaning of Conspiracy Theorist? Note taken. Thanks. I am getting so I don't trust anything anymore. I have come to realize that reality is well, relative. (Whatever that means) I find myself singing Strawberry Fields Forever a lot these days.

The disclaimer also states:

The Daily Paul reserves the right to make changes to, corrections and/or remove entirely at any time posts made on this website without notice.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

then what is the purpose

for the content of my post heading? If the DP reserves the right to change, correct and/or remove ENTIRELY at any time posts made on this website without notice, why do you need the disclaimer that the post is the opinion of the original poster? Obviously the post was not made by a mod if it shows LibertyPoet as the OP.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

Prior to..

"The content of all posts and comments on the Daily Paul represent the opinions of the original poster, and are not endorsed, approved, or otherwise representative of the opinions of the Daily Paul, its owner, site moderators or Ron or Rand Paul. Additionally, posts on this website are the opinion of the specific author and are not statements of advice, opinion, or factual information on behalf of the owner or administration of the Daily Paul."

So, people have to be censored for their own views which is the first established rule?

Seems More And More Of Us

are starting to feel oppressed here. I know Fishyculture isn't happy and I am starting to see more of us wake up to how DP is being manipulated. You know, the problem with being awake is that you can spot the BS a lot quicker than before. Sorry Jon but I smell a rat on DP.

skippy

I do not have a problem with Jon,

I have a problem with censorship.

I come here to read information that is usually found beyond the extensive ends of the spectrum. I come here to post theories and ideas found beyond the common discussion.

If this becomes no longer possible, than I suppose it's removed my interest.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Well I Never HAD A Problem With Jon

before. I have even tried to overlook his censoring of the Boston issue because of respect for Michael's feelings. But then he went on this weird 403 binge. I posted a thread playfully saying that Fishyculture should become a mod. 403, she put up a thread gripping about the 403ing of my thread and guess what? 403, THEN Jon, with nothing better to do, put up a thread about contentious comments and disabled the comments to that thread. I have seen more 403's and disabled comments on DP since Michael has been gone than I have seen in the whole time I have been a member here. Now Jon is disabling comments on other people's threads as well. Excuse me but I thought this was an enlightened family like site where we could share thoughts and ideas as well as info about FREEDOM. When did it become the "share thoughts and ideas as long as it is agrees with Michael and Jon's thoughts" site?

skippy

what is

jon's contentious comments thread?

Jon Posted A Thread

this weekend titled "most contentious comments" that listed a lot of people's comments that really had no contentiousness at all. They merely had somehow stepped on his toes. I had simply posted a response to fishy about his 403ing my thread for saying she should be a mod. Anyway, I can't find it now. Surprise! Jon has the power to give or take away on DP.

skippy

the number of 403'd threads

I have been blown away by the number of 403'd threads. It's staggering. The other day I logged on and every thread I clicked on was 403'd. Something is definitely severely wrong lately.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.
