5/2/09: HuffPost users: "Hey, someone should murder President Bush!!!" (HuffPost: "Approved!!!")


This article is an extension of this special report:
HuffPost's protection of the most egregious violators of its "policies" --- and its banning of non-violators --- often on a minute-to-minute basis

(Originally posted in May 2009)

Well, this one is a "two-fer."
Here we have one of HuffPost's resident raging leftists, "postman606," whom HuffPost has facilitated and protected since September 2008.

Keep in mind that HuffPost's
FAQ: Comments & Moderation and Comment Policy prohibit threats, racial slurs, etc. Also keep in mind that HuffPost's Terms of Service & User Agreement, Part 3, clause (iii) states that by accepting these TOS, the user agrees that he/she will not:
"...submit material that is unlawful... threatening... hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense... violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate"

With all the above in mind, and the fact that HuffPost vigilantly monitors its top news thread, where all the following transpired, consider:


In the past 24 hours alone, while up to 25 other comments were "pending" (awaiting HuffPost's review, approval and publishing --- or rejection), HuffPost decided to allow comments from this user on its top news threads that:
(a) Urge the murder of former President Bush (see 18 U.S.C. 871)

(b) Use anti-black racial epithets

In both cases, HuffPost then reviewed, approved and published comments from his "friends," cheering him on, while blocking and/or removing comments from other users.

And in the last 8 months, as shown below, HuffPost has approved him to post over
6,000 comments.


So clearly, this user is no "troll"*, as Ms. Huffington and her associates like to use as scapegoats when the site's practices, and the rantings of its raging leftist users, are publicly exposed.
(*The term "troll" refers to users whom HuffPost accuses of creating hit-and-run screen names, to try to make HuffPost look bad; see a detailed chronology of this ongoing excuse, here. See other instances of outrageous yet "approved" behavior, including explicit threats, by long-term HuffPost users here and here).


First, re "postman606's" (and his "friends'") urging for Bush to be murdered:

On Saturday, May 2 at 12:15pm, HuffPost reviewed, approved and published the following "comment" by "postman606" on its top news thread (here) --- while 25 other comments were awaiting its review (stuck in "pending"):

To which HuffPost reviewed, approved and published some of his fellow raging leftists to reply with their affirmations:

The screen captures below validate these posts:


Below is the screen capture showing that 25 comments were "pending" HuffPost approval at the same time that it reviewed, approved and published the above "comments"re Bush:


Keep in mind that the phenomenon of HuffPost approving, facilitating and protecting radical leftists who urge or threaten violence against former President Bush, or other Secret Service protectees, is nothing new.


Now, pertaining to "postman606's" (and his "friends'") racism...

HuffPost approved the following "comment" to be published merely 1 day ago, on May 1, to remain "published" on that day's top news thread (here) --- and even removed criticism of it:

As you can see below, another user, "TiredOfLiars3," complained to HuffPost, "flagged" this post as abusive (see link at bottom of each user's comment), meaning that he/she reported it to HuffPost to review. Not only did HuffPost do nothing, it approved another user, "rampage," to attack "TOL3," while keeping the original, racist "comment" published.

Furthermore, as shown above, when a (non-leftist) user, "OrbitOne," voiced an objection to this racism, we witnessed HuffPost:
(a) Remove "OrbitOne's" complaint and ban him/her

(b) Leave"postman606's" intact
(Sorry, no screen captures on this --- it all happened too quickly).


Soon thereafter, HuffPost reviewed, approved and published its radical leftists' continuing racist comments:

During his confirmation hearings he woke up to his African-American nightmare moment.
Before that he thought it was all because he was good.

The Affirmative Action SCOTUS, who hates Affirmative Action. How ironic. Wait, didn't Bush Sr. and his staff call him Clarence?
Clarence hates his black skin. Me too.

In regards to "TiffanyHusseinBanned," we've amassed a considerable volume of evidence of "her" persistent racist attacks and slurs, month after month (which may end up in a special feature here on Huff-Watch). And as shown in the screen capture below, obtained on October 26, 2009, HuffPost has allowed her to remain an active user since April 2008 --- one month after it began pre-moderating all user comments on its news threads --- during which time it has permitted her to post 26,681 comments:


Even casual HuffPost observers know very well that were either of these two activities directed towards President Obama --- the urging of his murder, and/or racist attacks against him --- its radical leftists would have gone apoplectic, and HuffPost would have removed the comments and banned the violator within a matter of seconds --- or minutes, at most. (Proof of past incidents available upon request.)

But because this was directed at former President Bush, and Justice Clarence Thomas, well...

... the HuffPost beat goes on.


=====================

UDPATE 1, OCT. 26, 2009: HuffPost "banned "postman606," but allowed him to return within a few days as "postman66" --- under which it has permitted him to maintain his pattern of egregious violations of its policies

Sometime in early May 2009, shortly after the above posts, HuffPost "banned" "postman606".

But on May 11, HuffPost permitted him to re-register an account as
"postman66," under which it has allowed him to post nearly 10,903 new comments as of October 26, 2009:


So what kinds of comments did HuffPost review, approve and decide to publish by "postman66"?

This was not a user we paid a lot of attention to. But the following few examples give indication as to the level of vulgarity that HuffPost chose to continuously enable and protect --- while at the same time it was fast-banning other, non-violating users who dared to challenge, speak out against, or mock "postman66," and his radical leftist "friends":



This is what HuffPost has chosen to enable, embolden and protect --- in "postman's" case, for more than a year.


=====================

UDPATE 2, NOV. 7, 2009: HuffPost continue to approve "Postman's" pathological violations of its policies --- 1,400 more comments in 12 days

HuffPost has continued to protect and enable "postman66" (and his radical leftist "friends") to pathologically violate its policies at will --- while fast-banning other users who dare stand against him. Examples:

On October 28, on a page dedicated to debate over hate crimes legislation, HuffPost approved "postman66" to post this obscene rebuttal to another user's thoughtful post:


On a Nov. 6 page dedicated to discussion of the demonstration in front of the Capitol regarding healthcare reform, HuffPost approved "postman" to attribute some aspect of the event to a Jewish conspiracy:
(Note:
On HuffPost,"DaJoos" is a common parlance for "The Jews")


On a Nov. 7 page dedicated to discussion of the House of Representatives' planned vote on healthcare reform, HuffPost approved "postman" to assail another user,
who claimed he/she is black, based on race --- then to claim he/she is lying about his/her race:


And it just goes on. As of Nov. 7, 2009, HuffPost has reviewed, approved and decided to publish 12,308 comments by "postman" since May 11, 2009 --- more than 1,400 comments in the 12 days since Oct. 26 alone:


Assuming "postman" sits on HuffPost for ten hours a day, that means it has reviewed, approved and decided to publish more about one comment of his every five minutes, for ten hours straight. Nope, no problem there.

Yet as noted here, at the same time, HuffPost continues to censor and ban non-violating users who dare to challenge or mock him and/or his "friends," sometimes after as few as 6 comments.



=====================

UDPATE 3, JAN. 20, 2010: "postman66" openly admits he is the former "postman606" (as if there were any doubt); HuffPost bans inquirer, but continues to let "postman66" violate policies at will

As shown in the screencap below, a Huff-Watch operative, "Xerxes In Boston," openly asked "postman66" if he is the former "postman606," to which he responded "One and the same."


Two days later, on January 22, HuffPost banned "Xerxes In Boston"...


... yet as of March 1, 2010, HuffPost continues to let "postman66" post at will... while fast-banning users who dare to challenge him... and he is now up to 25,819 comments:

.

=====================

UDPATE 4, APR. 26, 2010: HuffPost permits "postman66" to basically "live" on the site, exceeds 35,000 comments

On March 1, "postman" had 25,819 comments in his archive; less than two months later, HuffPost enabled him to add nearly 10,000 more --- to 35,577 comments. That's 1,250 comments a week, or nearly 200 comments every day. Breaking down that math, it adds up to nearly one comment every six minutes for 20 hours per day, every day --- no matter how egregiously he violates its policies (while censoring and banning non-violating users who dare to stand against him and his "friends"):


=====================

UDPATE, APR. 29, 2010: HUFFPOST MAKES "POSTMAN66" A MODERATOR

Yes, it's true. Click to enlarge this screen, so you can see precisely how HuffPost defines a Moderator's virtues, and powers:


=====================

UDPATE, June 7, 2010: HuffPost bans "Postman66," but allows him to come back hours later as "Le Facteur 99" (French for "The Postman"), rapidly elevates him back to Level 2 moderator

All his behaviors remained exactly the same, so we're not quite sure why HuffPost would make a show of "banning" him. We have absolute, irrefutable proof that when HuffPost wants to keep a user off the site, it has the means of being able to do so --- before the undesired user even is able to post one comment, under a new account.

Regardless, now "postman66" is "Le Factuer 99" (French for "The Postman"):


And how do we know that Le Factuer 99 is, in fact, postman66? Well, because as before, he made it a point of telling his dear friends --- the worst-of-the-worst fellow Moderators who he is. This includes the notorious "foxinretreat" (famous for his threats and solicitations of murder against top conservatives), who we profile here:


=====================

UDPATE, Dec. 22, 2010: As before, HuffPost has allowed the Postman to essentially "live" on the site for the past six months, continue engaging in his same behavior (while intimidating and deleting other users)

As shown below, in the span of six months, HuffPost has allowed the Postman to post 21,500 comments:


Working out this math, that translates to nearly 3,600 comments per month, or 120 comments per day --- every day --- week after week, month after month. Or one comment every six minutes for 12 hours a day, every day. For six months. On all of HuffPost's top news threads. Violating all its Comment Policies and Terms of Service at will, along with the periodic threat and solicitation of murder thrown in, just for good measure.

So, using all the facts and figures above, HuffPost has allowed the Postman to post --- at a minimum --- 63,000 comments in the past two years.

Yet according to HuffPost's senior management, the "offensive" comments that appear on its top threads, by users such as him, are all "accidents," and they work vigilantly 24-7 to keep the bad users away.

Right.
