Well, I had not known that, interesting indeed.  I'm not sure why this fascination with numbers of posts exists, but it's fine with me.


Translated let me divert attention to something else so I can take the highground in my own limited mind
I do find it interesting you bitch about someone poking fun at you when you wanted a limit on the number of posts I could make in a day at one time especially in light of someone having these unofficial records per post in one day

1. 87
2. 84
3. 81
4. 74
5. 69 (twice)
6. 66
7. 65
8. 62
9. 61

Can we say hypocrite yet?
As a note do I need to self report this post as well?

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

I never wanted to limit the number of posts a person could make in a day.  I thought the proposal to limit word count in a single post was worth considering.

I try and keep my posts short.  I don't think anyone reads uber long posts.

I see you continue to fabricate all sorts of lies about me here.  It is entertaining.  You can't deal with the Truth, so you fabricate some alternate reality.

SNIP:
Most of the defenders of censorship by Big Tech have claimed that most of the removed postings have violated “the science” surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. This ignored the fact that many of the offending posts have been by highly credentialed scientists and medical specialists from some of the most prestigious institutions in the world, including Stanford, Yale, Harvard, and Oxford.

But what explains Twitter’s censorship of Jason Whitlock, an African-American sports commentator formerly of ESPN?

Whitlock’s crime is that he posted a link to a real estate blog showing that Patrisse Khan-Cullors, a Black Lives Matter co-founder, was buying a $1.4 million home in a secluded Los Angeles neighborhood where only 1.4 percent of residents are black.

Whitlock had some fun zinging the self-described “trained Marxist” ideologue for her hypocrisy: “She had a lot of options on where to live. She chose one of the whitest places in California. She’ll have her pick of white cops and white people to complain about. That’s a choice, bro.”

Twitter promptly censored the tweet — posting a notice that it was “no longer available.”


Khan-Cullors has recently bought four high-end homes worth a total of $3.2 million.


The family of Michael Brown, whose death in a police-involved shooting in Ferguson, Mo., led to a wave of corporate and foundation donations to BLM, says that their local group has received a total of $500 from BLM. “Why hasn’t my family’s foundation received any assistance from the movement?” Brown’s father asks.

BLM’s Khan-Cullors isn’t the only left-wing figure to get soft treatment and protection from Big Tech. Recall that Twitter shut down the New York Post’s account after it published a pre-election story that Hunter Biden’s computer had been left at a store for repair and was found to contain disturbing information on how he traded on his family’s name to secure lucrative payouts from suspect Chinese and Ukrainian companies.


A Gallup/Knight poll last year found that nearly half of all Americans think the media is highly biased, with 57 percent saying their own news sources are biased. A troubling 52 percent believe that reporters misrepresent the facts, and 28 percent believe reporters make up facts entirely.

After episodes like the Khan-Cullors censorship and the media’s kid-gloves treatment of Hunter Biden, should any of us be surprised at those numbers?

More proof that those on the left are flat-out hostile to the First Amendment.

I don't think Twitter is violating the First Amendment, if we take that wording as absolute and verbatim.

Selective editing
Showing a dramatic scene and hyping it and failing to show any context
Showing 3 people's interviews when you did 30 to get the most extreme
Offering opinion in the "news" part of the show
Failure to cover major stories
Excusing said failure to cover
Deciding on the story and then fitting the facts to support that story, instead of presenting anything in context
Incompetence
