I guess Twitter has really stirred up a hornets nest by improperly blocking an attorneys account.

Lin Wood, attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse, says he was locked out of Twitter account

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/attorney-for-kyle-rittenhouse-locked-of-twitter-account

I can't help but to feel like I have been the victim of said discriminations at times and even recently when it comes to Jack's Square Capital.

Perhaps I should reach out to this attorney on Twitter, doesn't feel fair.

The first amendment protects people from having their right to free speech suppressed by the government. It does not protect against the same action by private corporations... Which is exactly why when Trump overturned the net-neutrality rules imposed by Obama, he made this kind of thing much more likely to happen. But as long as he's a macho prick, you'll gladly follow his lead right through the gates of Hell. It's your own voting record that contributed to this problem.

Just sayin

That's a harsh indictment, PowerStroker!

There such a thing as section 230 for distributor amunity, it's clear that Twitter is going against the "code" by unfairly discriminating against people based on their political and religious beliefs. This is a big no-no and has nothing to do with net neutrality. 

If they want to be a publisher rather than a distributor then they should switch to a subscription service and see how many people stick around. 

It's a moot point since every 10 years or so someone better comes around and canabalizes the market. When they want to kill off a platform they sell it to Microsoft - ie Linkdin and soon to be TikTok.

After all, it's not Twitter that makes Twitter, it's the members who make Twitter. 

Try following Jack Dorsey for more than a week, I can assure you it's a boring and unfulfilling waste of time. 

IIRC, Twitter is not a private company. It's a publicly traded corporation.

The first amendment doesn't protect your free speech against the actions of publicly traded companies either. It just protects you from the government. Which is why liberals, like myself, like to regulate companies so they can't pull this kind of shit. What has your side been doing about regulating companies exactly?

You don't see many conservative sites censoring liberals but almost all liberal ones will censor the conservatives.

We don't regulate because we don't need govt in every single aspect of our lives like Libs. Libs would have a 95% govt sector and 5% private left to them.

Not true, I'm a capitalist. I would however like to see the government increase in size large enough to provide single payer universal healthcare like every industrialized nation. But other than that I'm ok with the ratio of private sector to government.

Lets deal in truth rather than Reagan / Nuffan talking points please.

I was just kidding... laying some bait to see if Rastus would emerge from his hiding.

I kicked you out of the V8 Cafe, because you're a dick, quite frankly. Since you goal is public humiliation by way of character assassination based on dubious or otherwise conflicting evidence (aka textbook Democrat), then I figure what is the point in just feeding you more?

Considering everyone on this forum, including current V8 Cafe members, are anonymous anyway - that about says it all.

That said, Rastus hasn't been around in awhile... I sure hope he is doing well and that COVID, Aliens, Secret Societies, The Nucular companies, Governments or all of them collectively haven't gotten to him.

I made one little comment and included some of my own faults in it as examples of how all people have a past and shouldn't let it paint a picture of their entire lives. Then YOU drew far more attention to it, and created the very problem that you are complaining about.

I am a dick though, so you're right about that at least.

BTW, I have attempted to redact / censor the post that offended you so much as a show of good faith, but your site seems to be broken. I'll try again later though.

I tried again. For some reason I can't edit my posts in the Kamel Toe thread. I was going to thoroughly censor the offending remarks but no joy.

Perhaps you should make this place more like twitter so I can censor things more easily?

I've never asked you to delete anything, EVER. Any censoring you do is at your own discretion. 

Again, I am not ashamed of my past. 

On Twitter there is only the option to delete your post, no provisions to "edit".

Your "edit" provision isn't working. It lets me go in to it and make changes, but then I click submit and nothing changes.

That is odd... I have been able to edit my post for spelling errors without any issues...

Perhaps it's because you no longer have moderator access and the time to edit has elapsed?  

Try making a response and then editing it a few minutes after to see if perhaps it's just a time limit thing. Like I said, I have made a few edits here and there for spelling without issue.

Looks like ole' Jack Dorsey is going to face the music for his recent censorship of this article,

https://nypost.com/2020/10/14/email-reveals-how-hunter-biden-introduced-ukrainian-biz-man-to-dad/

Apparently Twitter users were banned over the link and it was removed from Twitter to the point that it could not be sent, even by way of private message! Now that is some real BS right there, perhaps the lowest I think Twitter can go.

But it would seem that all is not lost because Jack Dorsey has been subpoenaed to appear before congress to answer for his suppression of free speech and censorship.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/senate-republicans-call-on-twitter-facebook-bosses-to-testify-amid-censorship-claims-say-subpoena-in-the-works

I think it's safe to say both Twitter and Facebook are guilty of censorship.

Just got banned from Twitter for pointing out that so and so at NBC got kicked in her cunt by Trump in the sham of a town hall, where she apologized for even having to broadcast Trump on NBC. 

If anyone else can't see that Democrats are corrupt as fuck I don't know what to say!

 

Biden and Hunter - Pay to play at tax payers expence for millions, if not billions! Just wear a damn mask - "CCP 2020"

Fake Russian Hoax

COVID-19 - Wuhan Flu where Hunter got millions (China)

All liberal cities decimated with shut downs and or riots BLM.

 

Even if Trump was dirty, shouldn't we take out the oldest and stinkiest trash first!? If Trump is dirty then two years from now I promise to vote blue! My word!

But shit ain't right! Not by a long shot!

Twitter bans Trump and the United States POTUS account. Literally censored the last remaining vestages of Democracy. 

Yes Trump was arrogant, but he was always that way and the Politicians hated him for not being a double talking swamp monster. 

President Trump did every bit as good of a job as any other President and even donated his entire Presidential paycheck! He was as good as some, better than most!

What do editorial platforms like Twitter do but fan the flames to keep their ratings up? Honestly! Twitter is now in the business are forming narratives, but the one they don't see coming will be the best because regardless who you are, if you're a red blooded American you will NEVER support censorship!

Since when do the vestiges of democracy reside in someone's twitter account?

Based on the attack on the Capital, it seems like democracy isn't what you people want anyway.

Never before have I seen the sitting POTUS censored in America! Sounds like something they do in communist China.

Just remember these days PowerStroker, because if Biden comes up short it might be conservative news desks and social media that cuts off and censors Biden!

You know what they say, what goes around comes around. All you people had to do was wait 12 more days but you couldn't... You guys set a precedent.

I should also mention that a Twitter account was suspended for calling to attention Albuterol inhalers being empty at 70 puffs remaining.

Very odd how Twitter opperates, considering Jack Dorsey does not look like the most healthy of individuals. 

Sort of makes you feel like perhaps Twitter does not allow the real truth, and that the owner might be sucking corporate cawk. 

Missouri is the show me state.

That and calling into question the worh of Bitcoin. Guess that was the straw the broke the camels back.

Meanwhile, I have to find something to do with all that time I was spending there! LOL

Took three cuts with compound to get the oxidation out of the spoiler on the Firebird! It's been kicking my ass but it's looking and feeling nice!

Biden is trying to endorce a RACIST theory... They call it CRT or Critical Race Theory... He has PACKED Washington with these people!

HIS TWITTER SHOULD BE CUT OFF!

But nobody gives a fuck what Biden has to say... currently 90% of the conservatives have either been banned or run off the platform.... the remaining 10% are RINO's... remember that November 2022.

I guess being part of a group that is currently executing people without due process is okay on Twitter.

Twitter and Jack Dorsey are so full of shit, really nothing shocks me about that place outside the fact they seem to get away with widespread discrimination and censorship.

The platform isn't even that great, quite lame and basic if you ask me. 

I long for something more like the old AOL or Yahoo chat rooms! Live action! 

Now days these social media platforms are just too basic with no feel of community whatsoever. 

Glad I am no longer assosiated with the Twitter Taliban.
