And I don't even know why.


I don't remember posting anything particularily obnoxious, although I did refer to Racine as the Pedo Capital of the USA.

Oh well. It's been one of those kinds of days. I wonder if OrbsO'Corbs' account is still active?

Maybe I can plead insanity?

I don't go there. Every click you give them is encouragement, approval and dollars in advertisement and endorsement. The only way to win and find nirvana is to resist the urge and abstain. I truly feel "dirty" when I lapse.

I never once got banned from the JT.. hmm.. feels like I'm missing out.. I do go there to read the news, although I know I should really go to other sites, I just have them bookmarked from long time ago.. I do however really try to stay away from the comment section and the blog page I stay FAR away from..

I've been banned from there 5 or 6 times. I've lost count.

I emailed them asking for the specific reason or comment or word that got me banned, but I doubt they'll answer. They wiped out all of my comments. I think my railing against pedophilia enablers is what did it. I pointed out that the families of pedos often protect and enable them, keeping them actively molesting children for years, while they try to "help" them. Same thing at City Hall. Truth hurts big time.

Over and over, I ask myself, how do you live with yourself when you know that you are damaging others? I can never find an answer - all i can come up with is that there are two kinds of people - those with a conscience and those without. The first I call humans, the second I call pigs.

Oink oink, pedos and lying John!

Orb's: Most times I read your WIT, and I laugh out loud. Few people are capable of true wit, but your an expert. Thanks for the laugh.

Beejay said...

Orbs, you hold the record for number of times being banned. Keep it up! LOL....

Me, never been banned...stalked over there, but never banned.

Ahhh yes, the good ol' days of being banned, deleted and stalked...NOT! Nothing compares to being an Irregular. An Irregular, I will always be!

I received a reply today from Brenda Wishau to my query about why I was banned:


"Your account was banned for calling others pedophiles and saying Racine is a pedophile town.

"These statements are considered libelous, objectionable and clearly in violation of our Terms of Use.

"You can appeal in 30 days from the date of your ban, and if you say you agree to follow our Terms of Service, your account will be reactivated."

I did not call anyone a pedophile other than Becker.
