This is what now happens when I make a comment on Alex Jones' infowars.com from my IP address.
Recently I made a critical post on infowars.com (relative to the article) regarding infowars.com, Alex Jones, and an infowars.com writer Kurt
My comment just happened to be the first comment posted for the article, resulting in high exposure from viewers.
The comment was regarding my opinion that infowars.com is degenerating (the quality) to a point where I don't believe it will be taken seriously for
much longer, and how I tried to contact Alex; though got a reply from some dopey uncooperative arrogant chick, which has led me to believe that Alex
Jones has ditched infowars.com.
Later, I made another post expressing some of the reason I believe infowars.com was degenerating, such as how there is an ever-increasing presence of
advertisements plastered all over the website, poorly written articles by infowars.com, and how the comments system is mostly being used by people who
spam religious rhetoric's ("Jesus will save you, click this link!") and other forms of in-your-face annoyance, which has no relevance to the
I also pointed out that Alex barely contributes to his own website anymore and find he simply now uses it to project a cult of personality image of
Many other people have reported censorship on infowars.com. At first I thought people may have been mistaking the faulty message system (poorly
written server-side code) with censorship, as it some times fails post submitted comments, but recently I have noticed my comments disappearing hours
later after confirming that they successfully posted.
Its ironic that the man who claims to be the defender of free speech and all that hypocritically censors people himself.
After receiving the authoritarian message that I had to wait until my post was "awaiting moderation', I thought perhaps a new policy had come into
effect where all submitted comments had to parsed by a quality control screening process; in an attempt to tackle the heavily abused open real-time
comment system, however, when I posted a 'test' comment via a proxy server, the message was not moderated and displayed instantly.
After confirming that this pathetic attitude is being used on me by Alex and or other people at infowars.com, I was wondering if anyone else has been
experiencing the same cowardly attitude?
I also wanted to use the opportunity to inform others about Alex and his website's attitude.
