Bye Moonbattery

On top of outlandishly long load times due to all their ads, the site Moonbattery.com is now inaccessible.  Attempts by me to access them are met with the DoD warning label that notes they are a Hate and Racism site.  I don’t know who decides such things.  I’m guessing it is a black woman with a degree from an HBCU in equity studies.  Since weasel Zippers is almost an identical site, content-wise, it can’t be far behind on the ban list.

 

As others have pointed out, this is just another movement in the cleansing of the internet so that only one political view can be seen or heard.  It happens from both ends.  The ISPs and IT techs at the user side and the censors at the content side are all working together on this project.

    Very true. Often I find conservative leaning sites blocked with the same DOD banner. Of course there is no way to honestly complain because they bark out the “it is a government computer” crap as an answer. Each week there is another conservative blog or website blocked, yet lib crap can be accessed 24/7 with no issues.

    Speaking of clogged up with advertising …

    “This site uses cookies”

    “Discover Mexico”

    “Buy stuff at Sears”

    “Amazon Prime Original: Goliath”

    The price of “free” blogging, I guess.

    I assumed you didn’t collect fees but it looks like WordPress might be collecting them instead. I have no idea whether my blogspot site does the same but I don’t see them.

    The internet is just getting clogged with intrusive and invasive advertising. I have no issue with them raising money, after all someone has to pay for it. But autoloading videos, pop-up ads that slow the load to a crawl, etc, all the stuff you were talking about.

    I’ve also recently noticed that sites that use Disqus for comments now apparently require you to log in even to read the comments. A pop up “log in now” shows up and all the comments are greyed out until you do. You can read them (except for the first couple where the pop up in) but it isn’t as easy or convenient. To be fair I think that is Disqus, not the sites, but I would imagine that a lot of people will be looking for a Disqus alternative for their sites soon.
