Has anyone else noticed that the editor at the Leesville Daily Leader is stuck on some kind of power trip?? This individual is banning people left and right for stating their opinions? If the Editor doesn’t like what you say he\she just arbitrarily bans you from the website citing an infraction of the ‘rules’, however the interpretation of the rules this person cites is so farfetched its ludicrous. Too bad this little ole town doesn’t have any other local (in Leesville) newspaper than this rag with a yellow journalist for editor. The ‘editor’ should concern himself/herself with the multitude of typos and inconsistencies in the reporting of stories instead of making excuses when these are pointed out. Of course anyone who mentions the mistakes the paper is filled with gets an automatic ban. Me thinks the ‘editor was beat up as a child and now wants back at all the ‘bullies’.

I have experienced some of the same things.There absolutely no coverage at Rosepine town hall meetings.

I too have been ban from posting comments from the Leaderas they don't like it when you ask questions.
But to combat the banning I just make up a fake name and post my comments until that one is ban.
Side note I am running out of names lol (not really).
It would be nice if the only paper in town would have the nuts to let people post a comment or better yet have another paper come to Leesville and start printing, but that would not work as the power in Leesville would not allow it and as always the Town will never grow as it should.
The LDL will always be a dead paper as long as we let it be, I know I give them hell lol!!!

Hmmm. You guys make it sound like a fun place to post. Do they ban just usernames or do they IP ban as well?

Well so far it's the user name but they may have someone who has a brain and ban the IP next but I don't think that is going to be a problem as noone there has a brain.

The Leader is a joke and the editor is a mullett. It is a shame that morons like them have any more responsibility that washing dishes at the parish prison. The only folks that have any skill are the sports guys. At least they get out of the office and do some work.

I have seen comments that were deemed unacceptable but to me I saw nothing wrong with them... One of the rules says don't say anything that you wouldn't say in front of your mother at the dinner table, or something to that effect..... You should hear the things I say infront of my mom!! Most people would fall out! The rules are too loosely listed and bent for the LDL to delete whoever says something a bit bold or ugly cold facts. It's not really fair, it IS a public forum but it's anything to cry about, it's just the Internet.

The editor at the Daily Leader is once again resorting to high-handed and bullying tactics. The Gestapo censorship policies are again the ruling the comments section below the articles printed. If you are not in agreement with the elite crowd the paper promotes then you will have your comment deleted. If you have the audacity to question the editor’s fairness and objectivity then you shall be banned. This is a paper that only wants ‘puppet posters’.” Agree with me or else.” “Do not post your opinion unless it is also my opinion.” “Do not question the powers that be.”

Maybe the rack price will lowered to a nickle so we will get our monies worth. If that bunch at LDL would put their snacks down and get to work- we might think in terms of appproval.Investigative journalism is not a practice at LDL but laziness is.The classified rates are OUTRAGEOUS !!!!

There is no original journalism at the LDL. They only thing I ever see printed are prepared statements from various sources and reprints from media outlets such as the Associated Press and Reuters. I see no staff written articles. Investigative journalism is not a term they are familiar with. It is my wish that a genuine news provider would come in and provide the citizens of Leesville accurate, complete and mostly UNBIASED information that other communities enjoy.

If you've been keeping up with the posts on the Lopez story on leesvilledailyleader.com , you will notice there were over 80 responses early this morning. I just checked, and there are only 53 postings. The last 30 or so replies have just vanished! What say you, LDL?

There goes the LDL Editor up to tricks again, you know the one; the editor that went to Adolph’s School of Journalism where they majored in Creative Writing for Nazis and minored in Applied Gestapo Censorship.

Maybe it’s some bizarre southern thing. I think it’s a little weird. I always trick or treated on HALLOWEEN which strangely enough in the North is celebrated on the 31st of October. Every year.

My apologies, the above post is bizarre because it belongs on the trick or treating thread. It ran away from me and wound up here instead. Sorry, I'll try to keep better control over my posts in the future.
