Blatantly racist poster with a long history....

of making references to a "Jewish problem" and making blatantly racist statements against Jews.

Here he is making a reference to "Jewish parasitism" and saying "The Jewish race is behind all the criminality": http://www.dailypaul.com/285055/the-most-famous-american-jou...

Here he is saying "When Jews stop acting as parasites on humanity.": http://www.dailypaul.com/263192/the-terrorist-state-of-israe...

Here he is saying "Jews are the worst practical joke on humanity.": http://www.dailypaul.com/284379/stop-the-blank-check-to-isra...

Here he is hinting at a final solution: http://www.dailypaul.com/285524/bottom-line-if-adam-kokesh-g...

Meaning of the "109" and "110" references: http://www.dailypaul.com/283087/nestle-ceo-says-that-water-i...

Virtually every other comment made by this user is an attack on Jews, just look at his comment history: http://www.dailypaul.com/user/32645/comments

This is not simply a case of someone criticizing Zionism or Israel, this is an all out attack on Jews as an ethnic group.

It's up to you guys what you decide to do with this, I'm just posting what I perceive to be a black mark on the reputation of the Daily Paul.

Controlling spam (advertising

Controlling spam (advertising other sites) and crazy posts.

Should be pretty easy to change all the links to nofollow if the vote count is negative. "Nofollow" means they get no page rank from the DP, and the comment spamming/posts would be pointless, and usually will drop once they realized this.

Here is an article on the details of "nofollow" from Google.

http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&ans...

So the plan, if post or comment is negative, simply add:

rel="nofollow"

to the href.

Or just make them all nofollow, advertising isn't allowed here according to terms. (Advertising from users.)

Blah.

I asked to have my account deleted a month ago and it was not...

but now that you are cleaning house of the offensive topics and users that made me want to leave, I think I'll stick around and start coming back to the site, so please don't delete it :)

I'm here to talk about liberty and fiscal policy, not some BS about crisis actors. Thank you Jon, Michael and Mike for making this a sane place to visit again.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Critical mass is officially reached

The conspiracy theorists decide Jon has been planted here by the CIA =D

It would be hilarious if it wasn't so depressing.

I normally try to withhold from posting in the modbox...

because it is not for conversation, but considering all the attacks currently occurring in it. I did feel it was appropriate to echo JoshArizona's statements.

Jon, you are doing a great job. You are much appreciated, have always been level headed, and far more tolerant than you should have to be.

Why can I no longer reply to these threads?

Don't sweat it Jon.

There are many of us here who are very supportive of your efforts.

This place is a zoo, and you are one of the few zoo keepers preventing the animals from taking it over.

As a guest I like to visit the zoo, but that's hard to do when the animals are rampaging around making a mess of the place.

Thanks for all you do!

And remember that even though the orangutans here may like to throw excrement at you, most of the guests appreciate your hard work and know this place wouldn't be the same without your contributions.

"The State is a gang of thieves writ large." - Murray Rothbard

It's pretty clear

Jon is no Michael

Downvotes on this sarcastic post will be a measurement of your intellectual capacity, or lack thereof.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

To Whomever is Running DP Now

Who are you and what have you done with Michael? DP isn't DP anymore. It is getting too weird here. I have seen less censorship in Nazi Germany novels. I am going to give my donations to another site from now on. Is that your aim? To run us off? Good for you. Did they take Michael away during the Boston fiasco? All your power trip has accomplished is to lose revenue for DP. I am not leaving but my money is, I hope others here feel the same. You are going to have your crummy hands full trying to censor all of us if we decide to fight your BS. Go for it jerk!

skippy

Dear Jon

Thanks for turning off the comments on my thread to you, after responding. http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/3075232

Point taken that this site is private property.

This site is also supported by subscribers like me. I support this site with MY FRNs.

Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe you're right about Bauman. But I disagree with you, and I'm not leaving.

If you don't want my FRNs, then ban me. Do it openly too, and show everyone what happens to people with dissenting opinions here.

well, you said it was for me

I have to assume people mean the words they say.

Does a subscription grant you your own interpretation of the facts?
Does it free you from any threshold of proof when making a claim?
Does it immunize you from editorial review, or reality?
Does it empower you to libel others?
Does it enable you to post pornography? Or obscenity? Or flat out lies?
Does it exempt you from reversing perspectives to solidify your argument?

No, it doesn't.

Can you honestly say you've tried proving yourself wrong? So far it sounds like you're willing to admit you might be wrong, but just aren't willing to verify it. That's not a person I would want to talk to, would you?

Cancel your subscription on your own if you want to go.

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

I already said I'm not leaving

Does a subscription grant you your own interpretation of the facts?

No, my right to free expression and my own "interpretations of the facts" is inherent in my being. God has granted me those rights, not a subscription.

Does it free you from any threshold of proof when making a claim?
Does it immunize you from editorial review, or reality?

I thought Mark Twain was doing a good job with his threads, of course they have been 403'd by YOU.

Does it empower you to libel others?

If you consider me calling things as I see them as libel then I'm guilty. You are a coward.

Does it enable you to post pornography? Or obscenity? Or flat out lies?

Nope, my ability to Self-Govern my actions prohibit me from posting Pornography here. Same with obscenities. Flat out lies? Just because YOU don't think Jeff Bauman was an actor doesn't mean I am posting "out right lies". It means we disagree.

Does it exempt you from reversing perspectives to solidify your argument?

I thought I saw dust being thrown on the victims. This has been debunked. I accept towels. You're arguments against my claims of Jeff Bauman have not convinced me otherwise. Nice tries, but not enough. fishyculture has provided an excellent reason why Jeff would still be alive today, when she mentions arterial spasms.

Can you honestly say you've tried proving yourself wrong? So far it sounds like you're willing to admit you might be wrong, but just aren't willing to verify it. That's not a person I would want to talk to, would you?

I look at all things with an open mind. I don't deny that there were real injuries from the Boston Bombings. I just think that the "Poster Victims" are BS.

If you don't want to talk to me, that doesn't break my heart either. I'm not here for you.

everyone gets their own interpretation of the facts??

oh dear. Good luck with that.

- - - - -

Many Days Later: Rereading, I meant something more specific than "interpretation". The quote I was recalling was: "you're not entitled to your own facts".

Intepretation was probably added because around this time I was getting tired of bizarro claims that were clear misinterpretations of fact.

awesome idea : color-flag system

... allowing for graduated levels of moderation :) thereby adding an element of diplomacy to the unique moderator \ post-writer relationship... If you went back in time 40 years and said that last sentence aloud .. would be funny ) ... flashforward :::

so here's a beta of the idea :
5 levels of moderation of posted comments and content:
• gold border around a post indicates "hall of fame nomination"
• silver border = "good job"
• no change = "good so far"
• yellow border = "watch it bub"
• red border = "you'rrrrrrrrre OUTTA here"

bonus feature : paying or long term members still have deleted posts within their own comments and topics archive page

double bonus : mod comments scroll across bottom of comment }
{ flexes glutes }
ok obviously a huge undertaking / long-term goal maybe :)

artist: Schiller

Dear Jon

Do you know this to be true, 100%? Do you support censorship over honest debate? Why not let threads that YOU don't like, live and die by their merits as ecorob suggested? In my opinion, you are a coward. I never thought I'd see such blatant censorship on a site that promotes liberty and freedom. I thought that the 1st amendment allowed ALL forms of speech, even controversial speech? I thought I heard Dr. Paul say something like that once...

##############################

Your opinion on a factual event is wrong. You can spread it somewhere else. Statement in bold is by Jon.

##############################

IMO, "Jeff Bauman" is a crisis actor. IMO, there was a mixed bag of real life and fake injuries. IMO, the most severe injuries are the ones portrayed by "actors". IMO, those with the severest and "fake" injuries are being portrayed as poster victims for the Boston Marathon. With all due respect to "Jeff Bauman", I don't believe his injuries are real. Then again, those are my opinions and I'm not here to convince you.

Jon the Moderator says: "Jeff Bauman is a crisis actor threads will not be tolerated"

I say: Your blatant censorship will not be tolerated, and I will call you out on it.

Unpublish is foreign to me.

Unpublish or withdrawing post thrice may well be innocent. I wish all to be innocent mistakes... Mine or your is of little consequence. Unfortunately, the evidence weighs heavy. I seek to show the worlds travails in a helpful manner. Meaning no harm. Nourish understanding & sympathy. News photographs posted & linked were published by major new media April 15th. Analyst annotations describe the photographic evidence. I am thankful for the response posted to each of my DailyPaul threads. I work diligently on each & every post & reply.
I linked relevant DailyPaul threads as well. I could easily reduce the 3 posts to one or two, eliminating redundancy. Photographs were of the best focus found. The VetearnToday photo essay & editorial board postings here are what got me my interest to post more. Twas hard to stomach this mess. Seems contrived per the photographic evidence.

If you feel that major news reporting of April 15th, Boston was... counter to all evidence to the contrary... honest & upright, I am speechless.

I stood like one bewitched. I drank it in, in a speechless rapture. The world was new to me, and I had never seen anything like this at home. But as I have said, a day came when I began to cease from noting the glories and the charms which the moon and the sun and the twilight wrought upon the river's face; another day came when I ceased altogether to note them. - Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi, 1883.

Ya' know, I really wanted to try to make peace, but when you reply to more recent posts, and you suspend my posting privileges without explanation or warning) and then refuse to acknowledge this... It starts to look like a personal vendetta,. I hope I am wrong.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Most Contentious Comments

according to Jon. Yet mine has 3 upvotes and Jon won't allow responses to his post. What gives?

skippy

ecorob's picture

so says the great and powerful...

"mods"

rhymes with oz (almost) and carries the same type of connotation

did you expect us folks here at the DP (those liberty-minded who are drawn to it) to support ANY kind of censorship?

we are not wired that way

if its not a personal attack (sorry, I have been guilty of that) or, if it doesn't inherently seek to "destroy" this website by those things against the "law" of the land then it should be left alone to live and die on its on merit

I think those things are just "paulisms".

When I try to view all "recent comments"...

...of myself or others, the screen comes up as if someone has put in criteria to do a search with criteria defaulted to my screen, rather than the usual list of all comments coming up.

I have not tried to search my comments with that function, let alone with the criteria that is in there, so not sure why it comes up like that.

I clicked a couple other members' names to see if it looked like that when I try to see all of their recent comments and it comes up that way on theirs as well.

Where it says "Subject or Comment", the word "contains" has been selected in the box underneath both, and the words "judy wood" are typed in under that. Where it says "Timestamp", the words "Is equal to" have been selected in that box under it, and the date and time "2013-01-01 00:00:00" have been put in under that.

So two questions:

1) Why is it coming up automatically with search criteria pre-filled to look for comments containing "judy wood" and with a timestamp selected?

2) How do I see the list like I used to be able to see of all recent comments if I'm not doing a search for specific criteria?

Joη's picture

welllllll

if, signed in as you, you ever clicked on any of the links I had pointing to my comments on Judy Wood, I bet the site took those options and remembered them for your account on that page.

I've now set it to not remember them, and default to an option that shows all results.

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

The subject, comment, and timestamp boxes...

...all now say "Is not empty (NOT NULL)"

Not sure what that means, but at least I can see the list of comments now.

The change where "judy wood" appeared in my search function is something recent, as it hasn't been too long ago that I'd looked at someone's comment list. I don't recall clicking any of your Judy Wood links recently, though, as the Judy Wood controversy is of little interest to me. But whatever happened, at least it's reset now.

Thank you for fixing it to where I'm once again able to see the comment list.

To Joῃ:

For a thankless job well done:
