DumpBachmann is a Joke

Today I posted more responses to the ongoing DumpBachmann comment thread, and Eva refused to post them. Again. Eva's blogs are the worst kind of deception: they claim openness but even as they do, they silently manipulate the debate by squelching comments from the other side.

Can anything they do or say be trusted? How can a person like Eva Young claim to have a shred of credibility after such hypocrisy?

As I've said before, it's every blogger's right to censor comments - but when you openly boast that you don't censor anyone's comments, then silently suppress views you don't agree with, that's pure hypocrisy.

DumpBachmann is a joke.

I'm posting your comment here. That thread is way past it's prime on DB. We aren't going to approve any more comments on that thread, so knock yourself out.

Eva

I submitted this earlier, and you are censoring it. I'll keep submitting until you post it. As long is-joke.html">censoring it. I'll keep submitting until you post it. As long as you continue to suppress valid comments, you are censors and hypocrites. ===== "Why not equal time for personal jet packs as well?" Well, let me list the reasons... jetpacks are: - less safe - less efficient - less practical - more polluting - not public transit PRT, on the other hand, is more safe, more efficient, and less polluting than jepacks, trains, buses, and private cars. PRT and jetpacks have nothing in common, unless you are a luddite who views all new ideas with condescension and mockery. Once again, a DumpBachmann contributor gets it completely wrong when it comes to PRT. But by all means, keep trying, eventually you might get something right. :-)

No, Eva, that's not the way it works. You are a censor, plain and simple. The thread was on DumpBachmann, not here, and the response belongs there. Note, you allowed other comments to pass (again) without posting mine, which is clearly a deception.

But I'm not surpirsed. DumpBachmann is a joke.

Here's the link to the comment thread. I pasted your comment at the end of Lav Blue's Jet Pack comment - so it is now available on that comment thread.

Ha! Eva posted it two days later not as a top level comment but as an edit to an existing comment!

Why does that matter? Well, edited comments don't appear on the blog sidebar; only new comments appear there. So now, my comment is effectively buried - held for 2 days until the thread was buried under other posts, then finally posted in a way that it did not appear in the comment sidebar - and then only after I berated her for suppressing it.

Obviously Eva doesn't want anyone to see this comment, which calmly reveals the absurdity of her anti-PRT rhetoric.

{sarcasm}
Well then, Eva, it's now abundantly clear that you never had any intention of squelching my participation in the debate. Please accept my apologies for daring to question you openness. {/sarcasm}
