At home I am pretty steeped in a Democratic culture; my wife is a staunch Democrat, as are her parents and mine. I consider myself an independent, so to balance myself out I follow a couple of Republican blogs.
Recently I ran across a post complaining about an objectionable video being show at a local high school – interesting to me because (a) I’m a new father, and (b) it’s a local school. I posted a response to the post, thinking to start an interesting discussion. Oddly, when I checked back a couple days later, my response was gone! My comments were quite unobjectionable; I basically said that I agreed with the three points listed at the end of the article. So I posted another response, noting that my previous comment had disappeared, and asking if they were having any technical problems. That comment has now also disappeared.
Well, I don’t know for sure what’s going on here, but it seems reasonably likely that my comments are simply not welcome on that site. I believe I will unsubscribe.
