Censoring Eye Roll on World Net Daily

World Net Daily censors its comments. All you have to do is go to my About page for more on that. Or some of my earlier posts where I mentioned how many comments WND had deleted in some articles.

So, when I saw a news story on WND linked to the London Guardian entitled, “Popular Science Kills Comments,” I knew that it would be rich in cognitive dissonance.

The article itself isn’t even really important, but I’ll mention it in one line if you haven’t figured it out: The website Popular Science has decided to remove the ability for readers to comment on its articles because “Simply including an ad hominem attack in a reader comment was enough to make study participants think the downside of the reported technology was greater than they’d previously thought.”

Right now, the top-rated WND comment is from “ratamacue76” who wrote, “Sounds like they just can’t handle opposition to their views.”

“onooop” wrote, “Nobody wants to know what the publics real thoughts and feelings are anymore! they just want us to be subservient and indoctrinated to them!”

And, “Captain America’s Wife” wrote, “I’ve noticed recently that a few of their articles were politically motivated and skewed to the left, so it’s no surprise that they want to suppress opinions and discussion.”

Sometimes you just have to shake your head and wonder if these people realize that everything they say applies to their own views, too.

    Hmmmm… I still get “You do not have permission to post on this thread” on EVERY article I try to comment on. At least PopSci applied the same rules to everybody, not just to those who expressed an opinion it disagreed with.
