Subject: Comment limit

Neil,

In the last 24 hours you submitted at least 24 comments to VTDigger. In the past week you commented 96 times. That quantity is too much for our staff to manage, therefore we will be limiting you to five or six comments a day. Any in excess of that number will be deleted.

Can you challenge Vermont Union ideas & be heard? Moderation or censorship at Digger?

Interesting censor on this one. Complementing another poster on the good ideas, that challenges the plan for institutionalizing our young children. Nope….this one didn’t make it either. What are your thoughts? Here’s the “scandalous post”.

Vermont Digger admits to censoring many commentors

Here is an email thread with the folks at Vermont Digger.

 

Neil,

In an effort to let more readers’ voices be heard in the comments section, we are setting a limit for some commenters who we feel are dominating conversations. The VTDigger comment section was never intended as a chat room. We provide the platform to foster comment and discussion, but the back and forth some commenters engage in can hijack the conversation and divert it far from the original topic. While we understand you are passionate about your particular issue, frequent repetition of the same points becomes tedious very quickly for other readers.

Vermont Digger censors dissent on Burlington Teachers Strike

Vermont Digger, censoring ideas and dissent on Burlington teachers strike. There is censorship going on in Vermont.
The following was banned from the conversation on Vermont Digger. You’ll see we have proof, via pictures, timing and removed stamp from discus. Let us know your thoughts. The “objectionable” posts are below.

 

Are we being fooled again? By our Reps and Senators?

There is a trend in Washington, and it resembles a sleazy con. 16 years ago our folks in Washington quickly voted to fund the war. Bush took the money and started after Hussein. But we didn’t declare war, and the fighting goes on. We are told it was Bushes fault, but they are supposed to have the facts before pulling a trigger. Nope Bushes fault as they all quickly got in line to vote yes. Perhaps we should push the pause button.

Socratic Method on College Campus or Political Correctness?

We’ve all heard about the uproar at Middlebury Campus. Across that country people are being asked questions that deal with fairness and justice. Is there a difference between political correctness and Socratic Method? Is this accurately using debate to find the truth? Let us know your thoughts.

Vermont Press Censoring? Working to find truth or for Lobbyists?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As you know our organization has been very vocal for years now about having high grades on ethical government in Vermont. It saves us money and gives accountability to our representatives.

In a recent commentary article on Vermont Digger, this reporter was censored and prevented from asking questions on the open board. Below is the article.

Jim Condos: Let the sun shine in

FLOTUS, promotes, peace, forgiveness and love at Rally

Below is a link to FLOTUS Mrs. Melania Trump introducing the President at a Rally in Florida. She opens with the Lords prayer. When was the last time you saw this? What are your thoughts? Are you familiar with the Great Books, of which Western Civilization is based? We encourage you to read and study.

Is learning proper English actually racist?

You’ll see this report from Breitbart news where Washington University is claiming using or requiring students to use proper grammar is racist.  Perhaps this show how poorly our school systems are doing? Harvard class of 2102, taking introduction to Congress were under the impression that cheating was acceptable? 125 students in the class were caught cheating on a test. 42% of the student body was cheating on homework according to their own survey. Is this the standard of excellence we strive for? On a college level? Give us your thought
