This was one of the fastest HuffPost bannings that any of our observers ever witnessed (and had the foresight to document) --- after 6 non-violating comments.

"ABeautifulJesture," a new user, apparently dared to express a conservative viewpoint, with humor and rhymes. The surviving two pages from his/her comment archive, taken at 7:43pm on October 29, 2008 (see lower-right corner of pages for time-stamps).

The following screen capture, taken two days later, on October 31 at 1:52pm, however, shows that HuffPost banned "ABeautifulJesture" --- after the above 6 non-violating comments:

Yet as is documented in extensive detail here, while HuffPost was banning users like "ABeautifulJesture," it was enabling, emboldening and protecting users whom it knew were pathologically, egregiously and continuously violating its policies. (This even includes "kevenseven," whom HuffPost knows has been interviewed in his home by the U.S. Secret Service for his threats and urgings of violence against its protectees; see summary here and detailed analysis here).

Return to:
HuffPost's protection of the most egregious violators of its "policies" --- and its banning of non-violators --- often on a minute-to-minute basis
