Is there a more mealy mouthed, thin-skinned, local media group that panders to a certain group of "activists"?

They will publish the lies and rhetoric of some of the most notorious trolls in Santa Cruz. But try to argue a point and you don't get published. There's preaching to the choir and then there's excluding any opinion not by the choir.

For a group that claims to be all about freedom of speech, they sure seem to have heavy handed moderation that only wants to publish one side of any issue. If the publishers don't agree with your opinion, you don't get published. Or you get moderated.

Freedom of speech my ass. Not on IndyBay Santa Cruz. If you want to discuss local issues, there are plenty of good options. IndyBay isn't one of them.

And the fastest way to get anything deleted is to mention the fact that Robert is a multi-millionaire that never contributes a single penny to any of his crackpot crusades.

I tried to comment on Norse's dumb Cruzio petition and was promptly deleted.

What did I say that was so bad? I commented to never use Comic Sans as a font. Because if you want to be taken seriously, you don't use use it. It's used for comics.

Wow. What a terrible thing to say. But I guess the petition was written by a clown, so maybe Comic Sans was appropriate.

They're also too stupid to adjust the comment counter; It's hilarious when it reads 37 comments but you only see 6 or 7 remain.

IndyCrap deletes contrary posts because its users can't defend their points of view with anything other than lies, distortions, fabrications, and hyperbole.

you mean like when TBSC hijacked the clean team from TJ Magallanes because he would'nt adhere to their political agenda? This is why extermist groups must exist

Get your facts straight. TBSC didn't hijack the clean team from anyone. They are 2 completely different groups, with some members in both groups. They both clean up trash. Wow, what a crime. If Ken poked someone with a stick, that's on Ken.

TJ left the clean team because he moved to Oklahoma, and because he couldn't get along with other clean team members. He left on his own, nobody shoved him out. In fact, he's still a member of the Facebook group dipshit.

But go ahead and keep talking about things you know nothing about.

And hey, this isn't Indybay, where my comments to your lies would get immediately deleted because I'm not giving Robert Norse a virtual handjob.

At least with Take Back Santa Cruz, they actually allow people with different opinions to debate issues.

Of course, if you're a rude prick and make an argument personal, or insult people, you might get moderated. Or even blocked.

Just ask John E. Colby. Or John Cohen. Or Bob Mitchell. Or any of his other sockpuppets.

I believe you about the date so I will be sure to post a lot starting on that day.

How many months do you want me to post for to prove I havent been evicted?

I'm willing to post a lot to prove this to you and I do love the political discussions we have here.

Don't click on them John. Medusa should never look in a mirror.
We don't have political discussions here. We have you posting meaningless drivel you made up in the last five minutes (if we're lucky) or the same copy/paste you've been doing about 'dangerous teacher buzz', who may or may not be a teacher, live in scotts valley or aptos, and/or be dave beebe, zach friend, or steve clark.
Then there are the rest of us pointing out what a friggin' loon you are.

Hey, if you'd rather waste your time trolling here instead of looking for a job or a new place to live, you deserve everything you're getting dipshit.

Post away. It just reinforces what everyone here says about you.

You are your own worst enemy. You're certainly helping boost interest in TBSC.
