Reddit run by junta who meet at /modtalk/

I have been banned from posting to worldnews. Here are the messages that I got from qgyh2, who seems to be the censor-in-chieft at reddit. You can also check my posting history to see if I deserve this ban.


(The messages I received from other users are not personal ones, but replies to my comments)

Being 'right' has never been one of Wolfowitz's or the Neo-Cons concerns, they do what they want, damn the consequences.

You're an idiot. Getting drunk in celebration of the end of a series of exams does not make you an alcoholic.



And as for forming an opinion of a political leader based on the actions of his children? What a good-looking idea you've got there! I expect you'll also be needing information on how each candidate's hair looks, the brightness of his smile, and how many babies he's kissed this quarter in order to make an informed vote in the upcoming election.

Blair's son is not an alcoholic, he's a kid who got falling down drunk in a celebration and got caught out.

Reddit is private property, so therefore it is the right of the owners and workers to edit it as they see fit. The same with Digg and other websites. I posted a pro-Iraq War comment on Reddit yesterday under the name stalepie4 which appears to be taken down now, but I am not going to cry "censorship," because censorship is only something that a government can do. In America, and other modern countries, the people who own the property are given certain rights to do as they please with those using the property -- and this extends to websites that they own.
