Milton the Censor is . . . .

I think Steve Ibanez the PennLive editor. Yesterday, someone posted a question asking Steve whether he could please respond to an email requesting a new forum. I responded by saying Ibanez doesn't answer email or return calls. The poster was then critical of PennLive, pointing out that readers who log on are a valuable commodity. I suggested he start his own blog like we had to, and told him our posts would probably be removed. And presto! Tonight our posts are gone. Me thinks Steve is Milton and doesn't want any criticism.

I was just censored too. I responded to the Al Gnoza comment respecting Tattoo Jim and I said, "Now we just need John Luciew to respect him too." That comment was cut immediately.

what was that comment Milton posted here a couple of months ago, about shitting in your neighbors house? I guess you should expand Milton to include ALL Patriot News employees. We can call them Miltonettes....

Bollocks? That's a term I am unfamiliar with. What does it mean? (I'm seriously asking . . .)

How I do love to enlighten! It's British. Of course, I was shooting for: censorship is "nonsense" meaning ;-)

From the Wikipedia:
"Bollocks" is a word meaning testicles in British English and in Hiberno-English. The word is often used figuratively, most commonly as a noun to mean "nonsense" or as an expletive following a minor accident or misfortune, but also in a number of other ways; as an adjective to mean "poor quality" or "useless", and in various compound expressions (see below). Due to its versatility, bollocks has been called the Swiss Army Knife of andrological profanities.

Has anyone at the Patriot ever acknowledged the consorship?

No. And Steve Ibanez simply ignores emails and calls. I did have one reporter tell my husband in an email that they knew this was a problem, but that the newspaper is managed by a different crew than the online endeavor.
