I read two thing on the Britannica blog today and couldn’t decide which one to post about. So here they both are:


Ghosts in southern libraries (but nothing in my state).

    Britannica Blog is tightly censored. Reader comments incompatible with Britannica’s commercial or ideological proclivities are excluded. Boycott Britannica censorship.

    First, I don’t believe you.

    Second, I don’t care.

    Ooh, censorship. You know how I feel about that! OTOH, having been hooked before, I’ll just swim right past the bait this time.
    So what does “full support” amount to in mantyhose? I also wonder how they know “the bulk of wearers are straight men in long term relationships”. Do they ask? I see your post down there; is that really all your wrote, or were you censored?
    I wonder if my objection to censors has anything to do with growing up Catholic—the smell made me sick.

    I didn’t post there. That’s a trackback, meaning that my post HERE automatically shows up as a link over there, so people can see who’s talking about it.

    I also hate censorship, and as we’ve discussed elsewhere, I don’t consider it censorship for a private entity to moderate its own Web site.

    To me, the evil of censorship is about the government stifling free speech.

    (I did attend a midnight mass once, and was fascinated by the smoke and smell.)

    Ah, a trackback…that makes sense.

    I think my definition of censorship may be broader than yours. While I agree about private sites in general, and can’t quite place my finger on the specifics of the difference, I’m sure there are some.

    I assume the pun made it through.

    ‘Course the pun made it through!

    Geez, who do you think you’re dealing with, here?

    Well, I was ready to be incensed if it hadn’t. As for G, he’s out of the office, so I know I’m not dealing with him!
    BTW, I’ll be in Atlanta on the 12th & 17th, but only at the airport.

    I will not be in the airport those days, but have a good trip. If you ever make it further into the city, you should definitely let me know.

    Will do. I enjoy road trips, and will likely do another through the South.
