Well today was an average day.
Only two of my Disqus comments were censored and deleted.
So much for the notion that comments are posted immediately for those who are registered users.
Maybe my comments were deleted because in one, I called the editors at The Berkshire Eagle "Leftist rubes".
D'ya think?

Disqus is so gay I posted a couple times there and your right if I make a comment from my phone and then go back later from my laptop from a different path the comment is not there. The eagle should just not bother having one at all. However it does allow them to keep savory comments about political figures during election time while keeping out negative ones keeping things one sided and swaying public opinion even if it is in their own minds.

what I really would like to know is why they started doin this anyhow. I think someone must have sued and made the eage pee their pants or must have threatened to sue. Gee, I wonder who it was. Any body out there have any ideas??

Why don't you take up the mantle of wingnutdom, and wander around the public square ranting and raving like a normal lunatic?

I leave that to you and your bosom buddy Alan Chartock since both of you have the expertise in ranting.

More likely the rubes who run The Eagle suddenly were confronted with the real power of the Internet to disseminate news and information and thereby influence local events like the Angelo Stracuzzi firing/resignation.
The Eagle thinks it can prevent something like that from happening again by controlling what gets disseminated on its web sites.
Fat chance!

In many instances I am now making duplicate posts to Disqus and Topix.

Funny that I am not the one who continually brings him up. It is you who seem to have the unhealthy obsession with Alan Chartock. Perhaps you are just jealous that the businesses under your control didn't thrive.

Of course, you are the one who continually bring up Chartock. Perhaps you are merely jealous that the business of his creation thrives, while your own attempts were less than successful?

Millions of dollars expended annually so 6,900 listeners get their daily quota of Leftist gibberish you consider a success?
If you say so, Lides; if you say so.

10 years of expenditure on websites and spouting on public forums & no action whatsoever against WAMC = incompetent, unfounded, and impotent accusations.

Hmmmm...So Heller is merely jealous of Chartock and what he has accomplished? Sort of like Obama toward Bush???

Angry Liberal Lides, you sure are obsessed with that WAMC Northeast PIRATE Network web site.
(Please note that crooked management at WAMC is just one of the topic areas covered by the various web sites I edit.)
Lides, has it occurred to you that the financial shenigans pointed out by the WAMC Pirates web site may be why so many are rightfully suspicious of 'Honest Al' Chartock's total control of WAMC all these years?
Maybe you can explain why WAMC Management patently refuses to rotate auditors and the CPA firm that reviews its books?
Wouldn't you think an honestly managed charity would welcome fresh eyes to review how listener money is being spent?
Please explain why WAMC's management team is afraid to allow new auditors to review where and how management spends $7 million annually?
Is it really necessary, LIdes, to do a poll asking whether or not people believe 'Honest Al' plays fast and loose with listener dollars?
Also, Lides, since you seem to know so much about successful businesses and broadcasting, please explain why WAMC's listening audience remains so dismally small after all these years despite the number of expensive licenses WAMC has added and repeaters installed?
Waiting for your answers.

Idiotic GM Heller, I could care less about your self aggrandizement, nor of your failed allegations against WAMC. Clearly you are unable to support a valid argument, or attract the attention of any authority willing to further investigate your claims. After 10 years of continued allegations, it tends to make one think that your claims might be utterly without merit.

As usual, angry Liberal Lides, you fail to answer the simple questions that undercut your entire argument:
Why does WAMC Management patently refuse to rotate auditors?
Wouldn't an honestly managed charity would welcome fresh eyes to review its books?
Why is WAMC's listening audience so dismally small after years of acquiring expensive licenses and repeaters?
Stop circumlocuting, Lides, and just answer these obvious questions.
