Distressed over Bloggers flag cencorship

I am distressed over bloggers inane policy of placing flags over blogs for objectionable conrent. I am against censorship and do not want even the vilest antisemitic Communist rag of 167 censored. The first amendment is my birth right as an American, Sometimes we have to put up with moronic dolts like the bird brained duck or the acolytes of 167. However they are best used as comedic props and are more amusing then rubber chickens.

If you don't like a blog do not read it.

Secondly, it does not alow us to see the name and blog of the person who objected. I saw fags placed on almost every blog I frequent left or right. I will not flag blogs as I believe in free speech.

Censoring the internet is like milking a rainbow. Only the deluded can imagine it.

I've already flagged myself twice.

It's fun!

The United Nations Summit to hijack control of the internet occurs next week.

Bill Clinton, appointed to the UN in Feb 2005 by Kofi Annan, has sold you out again and Bush will back it.

Those flags appeared last summer, and I ran a little test (I have access to more blogs than just my Always blog). I found that, at some point, Blogger must've changed policy because, after a certain date, any new posting resulted in the immediate appearance of the "Flag?" icon. In one of my tests, I posted, then immediately the flag showed up.

And why can't we find out who flags us? Whatever happened to Freedom of Information?

Of course, Beamish already knows who twice flagged his blog. LOL.

Beak, you're so right: If you don't like a blog do not read it. Like you, I read blog with which I don't agree. But I would never advocate censoring those blogs.

Did you hear that the blogs tried to influence the French rioters to move into the heart of Paris? I wonder if the U.N. will bring up that argument.

Many believe that GWB's re-election was due, in large part, to exposes by bloggers. Can Hillary's election be manipulated if the Internet is restricted?

How do you know if you've been flagged?

Type your blogs adress in Google and see if you get the objectionable content message. Jason, Always and Mr Beamish have it.

Bless. I haven't laughed so much in ages. Maybe I should try to visit Beakerkin’s tribute to his own cowardly mindless libellous fascist drivel a somewhat more regular read than once every four or five months.

I’m flagged? I didn’t know that. Who would flag AOW?

At this rate it might become a badge of honor.

Maybe the straps on your straight jacket are tickling.

Jason,
CAIR might flag me. LOL.

As to "objectionable material," my site is a "clean" one. No bad language (At least, from me!), no sex stuff, etc.

I'm going to check to see if my homework site is flagged too.

Always On Watch said...

No objection to my homework blog. I'm surprised. Certainly some of my students object to homework.

I'll flag your blog for fifty cents.
