isn't it interesting how Atari can say anything she wants about Warren and the FLDS, but when someone posts something that is FOR the FLDS, it get deleted immediatly.

Mighty fair blog, I say. Only the isane and the prejudice can speak their peice.

Hey Blog Boss Dude! Why is it that personal attacks on Warren aren't considered personal attacks, but when somebody disagrees with Atar-i, it is considered a personal attack? I mean, I don't agree with what Warren does either, but I did agree with what that other person said about Atari spouting off about everything the FLDS saying is false, etc. What gives?

So much for wanting to hear the truth. The crediblity of this blog just went to hell in a handbasket. If what you post doesn't make their case you might as well forget it.

So that's what happened to your post? I've been looking all over creation for it. It said it all. Yup, that's why he deleted it.

From now on, save your posts on diskette before you post them. Then you've got a record, and can repost.

Pretty sorry site, is it not?

Admin is certainly censuring, and pissing off alot of people.

onthestreet said...

What he did, fokes, was remove a post just prior to where I had replied, thus making my reply look stupidder, instead of just stupid.

Amen! That says it all. It is only worthless to the worthless.

Oh great. Someone finally speaks out and makes sense and Street has to go and agree with him so it takes all the credibility away.

oops.. sorry posted this on the wrong thread so oh well, I'll just put it here too.

You just have to do a mental Street delete. He can be hard to ignore sometimes but don't let anything he says influence your opinion. If I were the blog admin, I would actually delete his posts unless they were coherent...see if he was smart enough to figure out how a conversation actually works.

Well, it was more than a mental delete. Admin deleted an entire post, and how many more . . .

Get a life Street. They didnt delete you just the interesting stuff. If they just deleted your junk noboby would even miss it.

onthestreet said...

That's the problem, deleting the interesting stuff. Talk about pissing off alot of people!

Blog Admin

I have to say thank you for focusing on the language. Someone has been very foul fingered! I didn't notice the language in the post spoken of above. Maybe it was mild in comparison to some others so I didn't notice? You do owe an explanation. Atar has been attacked before so I don't think that is the reason why.

fttc said...

Nor was the one attacking her the only one deleted. Admin cleaned up the others also. Thanks again!

weblog administrator said...

This blog has been getting hundreds of posts per day. I watch them as I can and clean out the vulgar ones when I see them. Yes, I know I have missed some.

As for the assertion that some attacks are allowed while others aren't...I care not one whit whether a poster is pro or anti Warren Jeffs. My purpose here is to stimulate conversation. I do insist, however, on keeping it civil.

I did not start this blog to benefit one group or another and quite frankly I really don't need the grief. So either shape up or say goodbye to this forum as it exits today.

There...I've had my rant and I feel better now.


P.S. to OTS -- It's not necessary to parse this post, convert it to Hebrew and attempt to assign it some deep dark meaning. It is what it is and that's all that it is.

divaqs said...

Thank you for cleaning the place up

Anonymous said...

Ok, so if what you say is true, admin, then if I repost my previous post, minus the potty mouth, then you will leave it there?

weblog administrator said...

To Anon 1:18
I only know you as Anonymous. How could I know what your previous post contained? All I ask is that people keep the conversation civil...so post away. But remember, there are a number of younsters who read this blog, particularly here in Texas. They, too, are interested in the new culture that has arrived on their doorstep. It is for their sake that I ask you to keep it clean.

Anonymous said...

I like Texan's. Maybe they care about there youngsters. A lot of people will post there filth and say it is a parents responsibility to keep there children from reading it. I think it is a parents responsibility, but I think it is others responsibility to not post it. This web page is also a very bad example of your neighbors in Texas. And to say you do not delete posts that discriminate is a lie. You are one sided.

I would also be very happy if this web page was deleted, so that the lies about our people would not be readily spread. Mormans are honest people. They would not be participating in evil. Any one who does is not a morman. We believe as Joeseph tought. Any thing more or less than this removes you from the catigory of morminisim. We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevoulent, virtiouse, true, and in doing good to all men.

Dear admin, the Warrenites think if they put enough filth on this blog that you will take it down. Hang in there and don't pay any attention to Ruth. She has been lied to so long that she wouldn't know the truth if it bit her. Thank you for a wonderful service and I like that you are trying to keep things clean. I don't think you are one sided, if you were you would have dumped Street. Or, if you were biased toward Warren you would dump MIB and ATARI. Good job! Keep it up!

First, you probably ought to explain to the good people just what you mean by "parse" since few people carry a dictionary in their hand or in their head:

To parse is "to analyze something in an orderly way. In linguistics, to parse is to divide words and phrases into different parts in order to understand ..."
whatis.techtarget.com/definition/ 0,,sid9_gci214503,00.html

Now the people need from you an explanation as to what is wrong in analyzing things in an orderly way, and dividing words and prases in order to understand, to deepen our collective understanding.

Are you anti-education, anti-Jew, anti-communication, a propagandist, a censor, a critic of all the brings understanding?

Just tell us where you stand, and why you treat people the way you do. Nothing wrong in being blunt and even critical, but it has to begin to help others to think about life and the deeper meanings of life. This is all I've tried to do.

Now WHAT IS WRONG with that. More to the point, WHAT IS RIGHT with deleting entire posts, a criticizing analysis and understanding? Geees, man, get with it.

Thank you Admin. for helping make this a friendly environment where we can all meet and have our say, learning about what makes people tick.

onthestreet said...

Yes, thanks for ABANDONING your 'children' so you could get your jolly's off.

At least, you could of told us. Just POOF, and you're gone? Why?

onthestreet said...

Just playin with you, of course, as long as you don't get goofy.
