The folowing is a false alarm. Yahoo just doesn't like links, and deletes every comment with a link. It took a while to figure it out.
One of the members sent me an email this AM, informing me that Yahoo was censoring comments that referenced The Obama File.
I figured there must have been some kind of a glitch -- after all why would giant Yahoo be censoring the website of a 72-year old news aggregator?
There's nothing in The Obama File that shouldn't be available via their own search engine.
So, I thought I'd check it out.
I visited this Yahoo page, "Obama Eats Dog Story Sends Campaign 2012 into Surreal Territory," with the intention of posting a comment that linked to the forum, which I did successfully -- note the comments count is 225 and the timestamp, "a second ago."
But, when I reloaded the page -- voila! My comment is gone! -- and the comments count is now back to 224, "John's comment" is still there, and the timestamp has been updated, showing 5 minutes has elapsed.
OK! So I tried one more.
I visited the Yahoo page, "Obama Birth Certificate and Selective Service Card Faked, Joe Arpaio Concludes," with the intention of posting a comment that linked to the archive.
Again, I successfully posted my comment, assigned number 404 and timestamped, "a second ago" . . . . .
When I reloaded the page, my comment had disappeared and the comment count had been decremented to 404, while "Susan's comment" remains in place.
Yup! Big, rich Yahoo is indeed censoring The Obama File, and it appears, because of the quickness of the delete, that it is being done under software control (automatically).
Now, the question is:
Did Yahoo choose to censor The Obama File on its own, or are they responding to orders from Team Obama?
As a special favor, I hope the members post the title and link to this page all over the Internet.
People need to know how corrupt those associated with Barack Obama are.
