Post deletions

Hey Scoob.

Some posts are deleted, but not others nearly identical in tone and content are retained.

Bias is present in the editing.

Blog owner typically can filter/censor however they choose and don't have to explain their decisions or even be consistent.

The flipside is that systematic bias in filtering will simply drive the legitimate contributors away, reducing the relevance of the blog site, which is probably not what a blog owner wants (though who knows).

We have to accept the reality that blog owners are rightful dictators in a small domain, but we can decide what our threshold is regarding when we choose to stop participating in (and therefore supporting) it.

I'm very impressed overall about this blog. I've been keeping tabs of sharp rise in the number of visitors accessing this blog.

I employ an even more rigid form of censorship. I allow no comments on my blog. All the content there is either mine, or given to me through other means, to put onto my blog. The downside is that my blog has a readership of 2 people (excluding web crawlers).

I may occasionally miss some post that deserve deletions. I am busy and keeping up with everything is not my goal.
Thanks for visiting.

This blog's numbers are fantastic even when considering that it focuses on specialized, technical and non-pop-culture issues relevant to a relatively small audience pool.

I'm sure all the news about NIF in the media may have helped that some too. The PR campaign seems to have some uncontrollable inertia (some call it blowback).
