I hope that my long term readers would agree that I try to make my points in a civil manner and without resorting to defamatory language. At least that is my goal and if I am not meeting it, I would sincerely appreciate your honest chastisement.
I also understand that a user on a given site agrees to abide by the standards that site has established. Being a person who believes in respectfulness, I read the terms of service for “The Huffington Post” and have tried to write my comments in keeping with their stated policy.
The “Post” put up a story about retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens who is touting his latest book in which he calls for amending the Constitution. In the article the retired Justice admits that the amendments which he is suggesting are ones which, had they been in place, would have substantiated a number of the minority opinions he wrote when he sat on the bench.
I decided to leave the brief comment which follows:
“Both Justice Stevens and conservative commentator Mark Levin have suggested a variety of amendments to the Constitution which each feels are necessary. Whether either of their hopes comes to fruition is probably a moot point, given the fact that the present administration seems to have difficulty enforcing the Constitution as it is presently written.”
Okay, that was my comment and apparently it generated some interest. In my notification box I had five replies to it and was going to see what these fellow readers had to say. So I clicked on the first one to find the following message:
“This comment has been deleted.”
And with the deletion of my comment came the deletion of the comment(s) left in response to it. So I never got to read what those commenters had taken the time to write.
This experience caused me to think of the verse from John 8:32:
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (KJV)
But apparently that isn’t true at “The Huffington Post.”
