"PAJeff" was another user who dared to challenge the radical leftist comments by "kevenseven," one of the most egregious violators of HuffPost's comment policies, yet whom it has protected for four years, documented here.
Unfortunately, we do not have access to "PAJeff's" comment archive, but the comments by "kevenseven" and another user paint a pretty clear picture of what HuffPost allowed to transpire, and who it chose to protect, and to ban from the site.
"PAJeff's" interaction with "kevenseven"
In an apparently fleeting moment of lucidity, in November 2007, HuffPost banned "kevenseven" --- but as has happened about 15 times since (here), it quickly and fully reinstated him.
On a news thread entitled Fox News Loves The Hillary Hostage Situation, Turns It Into A Car Chase, "kevenseven" explained to a "friend" who welcomed him back that "Dave," in HuffPost management, agreed to restore him to posting status. (The following is from the PDF of "kevenseven's" comment archive at the time, right):
Thank you!A few days later, "kevenseven" commented on the fact that while HuffPost allowed his comments to remain posted, it was removing ("scrubbing") "PAJeff's" in real-time:
Dave relented! I apparently called pajeff a flaming fucking used tampon of an asshole too clearly for the moderator. [...]
Me, I say let's humiliate the idiot until he cries for his mommy.

Not one moment too soon. He is a used tampon of an idiot. About as welcome as 200 pounds of fresh gorilla shit.

As if this weren't enough, here's an allusion to "PAJeff" committing incest with his mother -
jeff, don't disappoint your momma. And pop a boner pill on your way home, she sounds a little desperate.

Soon thereafter, HuffPost banned "PAJeff," but left "kevenseven" free to continue.
Ironically, it was only two days after this --- on December 4, 2007 --- that HuffPost allowed "kevenseven" to start posting comments that ultimately resulted in him getting an in-home interview with the U.S. Secret Service for his activities on HuffPost, which it then allowed him to brag about, starting in April 2008. HuffPost continued to protect and enable "kevenseven" through at least October 2009. See full documentation here.
ADDENDUM: HuffPost allowed another user to badger "PAJeff" about incest with his mother --- on its top "news" threads
At the same time "kevenseven" was gloating over the fact that HuffPost was systematically removing "PAJeff's" (non-violating) posts in real time, it allowed "kevenseven" or one of his "friends" to create a screen name, "PaJeffsMom," with which to continue the allegation that "PAJeff" has incestuous relations with his mother:
Jeffie is a naughty boy and naughty boys get spanked. On the bare bottom. While wearing his special "naughty-boy" outfit. And then afterwards he gives Mommie a hand with her vibrator.
NOw darling boy, why would you want to get rid of your very own Mommy? Mommy loves her good boy and her good boy loves his Mommy. Twice last night. You have such staying power.

WHere are you boy? I KNOW you don't like the pull-ups but I'm tired of washing sheets every day. And besides, you always make me sleep in the pee spot.

Come here and give your Mom a big kiss.
No tongues this time, the neighbors are watching.

As the PDF excerpts show, HuffPost allowed this to continue until at least February 2008, apparently because "kevenseven" and his "friends" believed that "PAJeff" had returned under another screen name. It also expanded beyond these users; more of their "friends" joined in once they saw that it was apparently acceptable behavior on HuffPost.
This all occurred on HuffPost's top news threads at the time (see page topic headers atop each comment) --- meaning that it would have been all but impossible for HuffPost's 24-7 moderators to be unaware of it (especially as they were "scrubbing" non-violating user comments at the time).
HuffPost's protection of the most egregious violators of its "policies" --- and its banning of non-violators --- often on a minute-to-minute basis
