Today's Too Hot For HuffPo:
It seems that some moderator at Huffington Post has taken a special personal dislike to me. I don't know how else to explain how strictly my comments have been moderated lately. The latest example from this morning: a comment on this article, entitled "Does the Past Exist Yet? Evidence Suggests Your Past Isn't Set in Stone" by Robert Lanza, a stem-cell researcher who lost his mind about a decade ago and came up with a "theory" of biocentrism, which holds that life created the universe, not the other way around. (That screaming sound you hear? That's Werner Heisenbergin his spinning grave, screaming in pain from the migraine that such a gross misinterpretation of his uncertainty principle is giving him.)
Okay, so here's my comment, the one which some little creep abusing his or her little bit of power decided was not fit to appear on HuffPo. Brace yourseves. Clutch your pearls, ladies. Gentlemen, have the fanning implements and smelling salts handy. Here it comes. Oh, the horror:
"This all kind of reminds me of peek-a-boo games with little children, when the little child thinks you've disappeared when he covers his eyes. Egotistical conflation of perception with reality. Infantile."
Okay, it's not just me: this perfectly lovely little gem from my HuffPo friend KrautMan was also removed, a comment on the same article. Lovely, and funny, not to mention prescient:
"I have a feeling that this post will have get published and yet has been vanished as if it never will be existed..."
