Screen name(s): "KevenSeven" (aka "kevineight" aka "kevenhussienseven")
Screen capture of "kevenseven's" profile page from October 18, 2009:
Active continuously since: 2005 (under several similar screen names --- the first of which, "kevinofburbank," lasted approximately two years, after which he became "kevenseven")
Total comments HuffPost has allowed him to post to date: Estimated at 50,000+ (when all user names, and self-admitted tens of thousands of comments HuffPost removed, are taken into account)
Commenting frequency: Often spends 6-8 or more hours per day on HuffPost, sometimes far more
- Expresses radical leftist views
- Has repeatedly bragged about being interviewed in his home by the U.S. Secret Service for his repeated urgings --- on HuffPost --- for the murder of President Bush and Nancy Reagan,* and ridiculed the agents, by name
- Has openly, repeatedly threatened other users and their children*
- Viciously attacks political opponents and users who dare to disagree with his opinions, on a personal (ad hominem) basis* and with extreme vulgarity*
- Uses racial slurs*
(*All are supposedly bannable violations of HuffPost's Comment Policy & Terms of Service)
HuffPost routinely protects "kevenseven" by:(a) Reviewing, approving and deciding to publish his policy-violating "comments"
(b) Censoring the comments submitted by non-leftists who attempt to refute his allegations, or respond to his attacks, and/or..
(c) Banning the users if they persist
How HuffPost has continuously enabled "kevenseven":
- HuffPost has "banned" "kevenseven" at least five times, it has fully reinstated him each time within hours or days, including his complete comment archive, and his prized "fan" list (which he claims gives him "cred")
- Despite numerous user complaints, HuffPost routinely censors and/or bans users who stand up to "kevenseven," a fact that he and his "friends" openly cheer.
A sampling of "kevenseven's" comments:
After he'd been banned, thanking "Dave," in HuffPost management, for reinstating him:
Thank you! Dave relented! I apparently called pajeff a flaming fucking used tampon of an asshole too clearly for the moderator. [...]

The first step is to cut of his freaking head.

NOTE: Amazingly (or not), the above screen capture was obtained on June 13, 2009. Despite the fact that HuffPost has known about this for more than a year, it never removed "kevenseven's" urging for the murder of President Bush, even though as shown in Section 5, HuffPost repeatedly approved and published his links to it, to show it off to his "friends": http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2007/12/04/aides-give-president-bush_n_75209.html?page=12&show_comment_id=10583497#comment_10583497
Admitting that he was interviewed in his home by the U.S. Secret Service for his activities on HuffPost:

And be careful suggesting the death of a Secret Service protectee. They may come to talk to you the way they did to me on Friday last.

Simultaneously exhibiting his homophobic slurs, and alerting HuffPost management to what he claims is an abusive user ("flagging"):
You are a dried up bitter old faggot, and I expect you are universally detested here. Oh, flagged.

Have you taken those photos of the kids as I recommended?
Because the last day that you see them is close to hand.
The Detectives of the Child Protective Services have just about wrapped up the case.

Pssst. Neo. Look out the window. Those guys sitting in the late-model sedan at the end of the block? They are the crack detectives of the Child Protective Services. They will be taking away your grubby little kids in a few days.
