Simple Mathematics Mushrooms

Taking Marty To SchoolDoes Anyone Read Turkish?

I don’t usually pay attention to my stats, but this page links to me, but every translation service I can find makes no sense out of the words on the page.

At first I thought it’s talking about Quiet The Hum, but now I’m not sure. It does talk about censorship and “simple mathematics mushroom”.

The original and the mangled translation are below the fold thingee.

Operation FuckTard

The Hovind Crime Family has managed to have the Rational Response Squad’s YouTube account suspended by filing at least ten false copyright infringement claims. (That’s a felony, in case you’re interested.)

The Rational Response Squad’s rational response comes in video form (another You’re A FuckTard music video entry at the end, watch all of it!). Please download the video and repost it wherever you can, and add it as a response to this video at this link.

I suppose that when your lies masquerading as Science are exposed by people educated in the relevant fields as a pile of crap, you don’t really have any other choice but to lie to censor your critics. It’s typical behavior from Creationist “scientists”, so I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. For the record, “Dr.” Dino (as he styles himself) unshockingly has no credentials in either the scientific or education fields.

Once again, just cuz it’s so damned funny – Live and Acoustic, from EddyGoombah himself right below the fold!:

Now The King Of All Poo Is Pissed

Pooflingers AnonymousLook out WP staff. You just got some Poo flung your way.

Here’s the story: not long ago, Janie and Kate wrote a short bit of serial erotica from two differing points of view (me linky you long time). To be quite honest, it really wasn’t all that dirty in comparison to some of the shit I’ve read on the web, and it had a style I respect where things are more hinted at than graphically described. Allowing the imagination to fill in the blanks is a great way to fly, and works well in nearly every literary genre (the main reason I like Steven King’s older works). Forcing the reader’s imagination to become actively involved in the story adds a bit of investment for the reader, and keeps them coming back.

Unfortunately for the girls, some asshole at WordPress apparently objected. It’s not that erotica and sex are taboo topics for WP blogs… the only thing we can figure is that someone took issue with the involvement of a priest in the story. Janie and Kate suddenly found their tags no longer appearing on WP’s main pages, and no searches in WP returned hits. All this, and no warning or explanation. A few emails to the support staff received half-assed excuses in reply… something about “we don’t want kids accidentally running into your stuff or people getting in trouble at work”.

Bullshit.

You might want to duck.

WordPress Staff Visits Elizabeth Wood’s Blog

Dr. Mike and Toni, apparently from WordPress’ staff are at least answering Elizabeth Wood, which is more courtesy than we’ve received thus far.

Elizabeth asks questions similar to our own and has (as yet) not been de-listed.

Please stop by and add your voice to this conversation about WordPress, censorship, and community.

In The Event You Thought De-Listing Was A Minor Issue

The BoyThe Boy makes a very good point with a graphic illustration of what de-listing did to his blog stats.

His voice is being silenced for no better reason than he was critical of WordPress’ policy.

We are not at war with Oceana. We were never at war with Oceana.

Janie and I are done blogging for the day, we’re going to practice some “mature material” kinds of things for inspiration. Then we’re going to watch the game and go for some more inspiration at half-time and after the game.

Maybe we’ll tell you all about it tomorrow, if our blogs haven’t been deleted by the WordPress Gestapo by then.

WordPress Censors The Erotica Tag

Stop Censoring Our Blogs

Janie was just checking, and all the posts have now disappeared from the erotica tag (only two very recent ones are there, apparently added after the purge by Mark and WordPress’ McCarthy Censorship Board).

We can now only assume that Mark has suddenly decided to go on a Holy Crusade against erotic literature on all blogs, and we are apparently the cause because we mentioned the tag when we were bitching about being blacklisted.

For that, we are truly sorry.

But please, don’t just stop writing it, don’t roll over and just accept his whimsical crusade.

Do everything you can to stop the WordPress Purge.

Post the graphics, make your own, blog about it, comment about it on other blogs, email WordPress Support and tell them how unhappy you are about these McCarthy era tactics of censorship in 2007.

Do not allow WordPress to continue censoring our blogs.

This must stop now.

Joseph McCarthy Adds His Graphic Talent

Stop Censoring Our BlogsOver at Censor This, Joseph McCarthy further protests the censoring of UDreamOfJanie and KissingCorporalKate with his own graphic. (Don’t sweat the url – there’s no child porn, it’s a protest statement.)

For those who may not know, our blogs have been de-listed from WordPress’ internal listing, which means we no longer appear in the category pages, we no longer appear in the tag surfer, and we no longer appear in the friend surfer (a WP service where bloggers have to enter the URL of blogs they want to see there – 100% opt-in).

The vague reason we have been given by Mark, apparently the head of the McCarthy Censorship Board at WordPress is that our blogs “contain material which we determine is of a Mature nature will be removed from our tagging system.”

Meanwhile, the adults surfing the sex tag (or any other tag for that matter) who are looking for content like ours can find piles of it, just not ours.

There is no set of rules, no list of guidelines, and no specific item mentioned which put us over this arbitrary and invisible line.

We have been censored at the whim of one person, we were not notified before or after the de-listing, and we have been given no recourse or appeal.

Interestingly, the de-listing seems to have occured just after the posting of The Itch, Part The Last and before the posting of Sugasm 64. Other blogs continue to post material that is highly sexual in nature, so I can only assume that Mark’s issue is with our portrayal of a priest as a sexual submissive.

We are apparently not permitted to speak about the church that way without reprisal.

WordPress claims that is strongly in favor of the freedom to publish, yet that is apparently only so as long as you don’t say something Mark doesn’t like. Their own Terms Of Service states:

The Website may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors.

While we haven’t been deleted (yet), we have been censored from the WordPress community’s eyes.

Please add your voice to the growing chorus of protest against this practice of arbitrary and secretive censorship.

If Mark can censor UDreamOfJanie and KissingCorporalKate for what we say, he can censor (and even delete) your blog without notice for something you say which he personally finds objectionable.

Have you posted a picture that might have been too risque? Are you sure?

Have you divulged just a little too much about your sex life? How do you know?

Have you used language that offends Mark’s delicate sensibilities? Do you even know what words you can’t use?

Add one of these graphics to your blog, your myspace, whatever. Blog about this, comment about it, email your displeasure to mark at support@wordpress.com and demand that WordPress stop censoring blogs.
