A pro-independence blog by James Kelly - voted one of Scotland's top 10 political websites.
Not to highjack your blog too much James, but you might be interested that the far right racists and wankers over at political betting are strutting about attacking Salmond and the Murray win with impunity while the cowardly moderator just banned me for daring to compare them to Dan Hodges.That's how far gone that place is now. Go and have a look at that thread. You will scarcely believe it.You would almost feel sorry for Smithson if it wasn't for the fact that he chose the simpleton right wing moderators and is happy to have such obnoxious racists posting.
Mick - Rob here.Totally astounded that you were banned. What exactly did you do, I saw you had one post relating to kle4's post about the wingsoverscotland blog deleted, but it wasn't controversial at all. I tried to ask what had happened, but that post mysteriously disappeared into the ether.
Hello Rob.Thanks for being brave enough to actually ask on PB as I saw that and counted the seconds before I knew it would be deleted.You can take your pick as to the why but you saw my posts and it's pretty hard to come to any other conclusion than the moderator just had a hissy fit and banned a scottish poster yet again.Hardly for the first time either since this is the 88th time I've been banned and blocked from posting on PB.Pretty self-evident that it's not me or indeed James with the problem, isn't it?Anyway, this is James Blog and though I'm sure he won't mind too much (he also knows first hand how biased the moderating is on there) I'll just say thanks for your concern and rest assured I won't let the bitter twats over at PB spoil such a great day.
It's funny you should say that, Mick, because although I haven't really been back to PB since my banning, the first thought that went through my mind when I saw Salmond unfurl the flag to salute a Scottish triumph was "I bet the PB Tories will be exploding in fury". It must have been a truly dreadful experience for them, and naturally the poor dears' sensibilities required special protection from the moderators.Seriously, I'm sorry to hear you've been banned yet again, while presumably out-and-out racists like Moniker and AlanBrooke can continue to post with impunity. I don't feel sorry for Smithson - PB has become a right-wing hellhole through his own free choices. Nobody forced him to make TSE a moderator. Nobody forced him to issue these utterly stupid bannings. He has to answer for those choices, but as always he "can't be arsed".
Hello Rob.Thanks for being brave enough to actually ask on PB as I counted the seconds before I knew your question would be deleted.You saw my posts and it's almost impossible to come to any other conclusion than the right wing moderator on PB had a hissy fit and banned another scottish poster yet again. Hardly for the first time either since that is the 88th time I've been blocked from posting and banned. Unless bringing up Dunblane was what set him off? You just never know these days as I'm afraid it looks like the site is being moderated by lunatics.I don't think James will mind too much but this is his blog so I'll just thank you again for your concern and rest assured I won't let the twats over at PB spoil such a great day. :)
Sorry for the repeat post James. My PC seems to be buckling under the heat.Thanks for the reply and please forgive the imposition on your blog.
Well I hope you come back (same to you James), if the bans get lifted. Seeing what some of the other posters have said about Salmond today, I can see why you think they are certified nutjobs.
The trouble is that Smithson himself is a Scotophobic bigot so the site reflects his own disgusting bile.
We'll find out Mr Anonymous. If Smithson permanently bans me for something that anyone will clearly be able to see is the heinous crime of posting on PB while scottish. I'm afraid there's absolutely no way around that considering the subject matter of that thread, the other posts by the conspicuously unbanned right wingers, and his past history of banning scottish posters.It's true that the right wing moderators and posters on his own site do love to tell Smithson what to do and push him around. Most of the time he buckles and caves in to their demands (it helps that he doesn't have to pay them to do his moderating work) but it's still his call in the end.If the ban is permanent at least I'll be able to post some of the most incredible things that Smithson and his moderators have been up to (with James permission of course) as I have plenty of examples of those.
Smithson and his "administrative zone north of berwick" is just another britnat. Proven Scotophobe and any explanation other than his own bigotry for allowing monica of fascism to post anything it likes? Man is a typical lib-dem. Proven liars and unionist lickspittles to a slug, every single one.
"If the ban is permanent at least I'll be able to post some of the most incredible things that Smithson and his moderators have been up to (with James permission of course) as I have plenty of examples of those."Yes, feel free to post whatever you like, Mick.
