So after years of posting on Alternet, I've finally been banned - for disagreeing with its authors/shills from the Left.

With the takeover of Alternet by the execrable owner of Rawstory, John Byrne, fewer and fewer antiwar, leftist pieces have been published. More and more pro-Dem propaganda has been posted, much of it attacking Republicans from the *Right* - as does the DNC these days.

After months of free-speech after the Byrne takeover, the moderators/censors are now in place, and their tool is the Shadow Ban. The mods ban leftist commentators, but from the commentator's POV, it appears that their post is visible. Open a private window, and you'll see why your post receives no replies - it's because no one can see it.

This sort of censorship is the lowest of the low... and is exactly what one expects, as a once antiwar, once left-leaning website sells out to the Democratic wing of the War Party.
