Don't Dump on the Stars -- Even if they like to get dumped on

There was a very positive review of the new Joaquin Phoenix film I'm Still Here by Hellin Kay on Huffpo today. I have to admit that I haven't seen the movie and never will but I like to read reviews, especially reviews that rip bad films. I posted the following comment:

You have got to be kidding me. A movie that consists of a self involved jerk being rude to people, doing drugs, and generally making an @ss of himself? No thanks.

If you read some of the more critical reviews I was being polite compared to the stuff they wrote. I mean I didn't even mention the scene of the guy crapping on Mr. Phoenix's face. Yet this comment was deemed too offensive for The Huffington Post and was deleted.

It was clear that The Huffington Post deleted my comment and not the author of the article because I also found her blog and posted a comment which she allowed to be published.

  1. This certainly appears to prove just where the strong arm of censorship is coming from.Which then begs the question, why?

    What is the gain or objective for HP?The question of why is an important one.

    1-Control of narrative.

    2- Generalized policy targeting select regular HP participants, for reason unknown except for HP.

    3-Are particular moderators targeting only select posters due a personal issue towards particular posters?

    4-Do certain Moderators have their own agenda,unknown to even HP?

    4- All of the above?
