Q: Why am I blocked from commenting on Huff Post? A: There are a few scenarios in which a comment might be blocked:
1. A comment is extremely abusive, off-topic, uses excessive foul language, or includes an ad hominem attack 2. If a commenter has previously posted comments that are abusive, off-topic, used excessive foul language, or include ad hominem attacks, a Huff Post moderator may decide to ban the commenter's IP address. This means the abusive commenter is banned from commenting on the site in the future, even if the later comments are not abusive. We ban IPs because the sheer volume of comments makes it too time consuming to individually delete comments written by someone with a pattern of abuse.
So not fair. Doesn't keep you from using other computers elsewhere, though. It'll teach us to tread lighter if we want to stay there -- wonder if that's what they intended, take one of us out of the loop there as a warning. Ah, so close to a conspiracy theory. Probably not that then. You're not paranoid if it's real, though. :-)
