More PennLive Censorship

Someone who also posted here about having his postings on PennLive deleted has now had my response to his question deleted.

I told him to call Steve Ibanez to complain. That bit of advice was promptly deleted.

Never mind that I personally spoke with Ibanez a few months ago and he promised he would check into deletions and that my postings linking to this blog would not be deleted. Everyone needs to call Ibanez and complain - again.

Know what? It used to REALLY bother me about how PL conduct themselves with regard to post deletions, etc.

But the more I think about it, the more I find myself saying--"Good. Let em delete it all they want."

Because lately, our community of voices has been resonating louder and seeming more credible than any crappy forum on a commercial newsgroups website that's moderated from over a hundred miles away.

With blogharrisburg.com acting as a hub for all of the sites like this, I think we're covering most of the bases and REAL issues pretty well.

Behold the new media!

I was the one who posted and I didn't have your question deleted. That whole thread was deleted at once--mine and yours.

Thanks.

Well--it happened again! I think the only thing that worked was the threat to post it to another board each time they make a deletion.

I find it interesting that the PennLive editor, Steve Ibanez, is not apparently in control over his own publication. When the censors are deleting information Ibanez said to post (i.e. that those who are deleted should contact him directly) then he obviously has lost the battle with the corporate censors or whoever they are.

If that's the case, then I assume the latest round has to do with the subject matter and a reader or readers who don't want it discussed - so maybe the Patriot should check their logs to see if anyone involved with the school district is requesting deletions?

Deletion done at request of the poster - just so everyone knows I'm not turning into Milton

The entire school district thread has been wiped out again.

Clearly, someone doesn't want that can of worms opened. How about it, you Patriot reporters who read this blog - who is deleting any discussion of the school district?
