Well, folks... as of 2:30 am, my article regarding CiC's behavior as a moderator was deleted by the 'Newsvine Community". I have sent a challenge to this to the NV staff AND have asked for an investigation of this matter. It is kind of funny that this happened JUST as I was posting my comment at #26 about the locked 'secret' groups clipping this article to their 'secret' sites.
"Hey, I just noticed that three of the locked 'secret' far-right 'whackjob' groups... Conservative Coalition Forces, Party With Frog Legs, and U.S. Citizens Against Amnesty... have clipped this article to their sites. Do I have any say about this? I do not mind my stuff being discussed by conservatives but I absolutely object to ANYTHING that I write being part of any group that is not fully open to public view. I don't care if they limit who their members are, they should be allowed to do that, but I am adamantly against any group that hides and operates in secret.
I guess that I will need to ask Tyler and the NV staff to investigate and see if they are still still stupid enough to discuss their plots in e-mails or on their group discussion pages."
Maybe we will see some more people being banned on here. I guess I'll see what has happened when I get up tomorrow.
