Free Republic bans me for responding to article *about* me

by Jeremy Hooper

So now one more thing about Burt Prelutsky's WorldNetDaily column addressing me specifically and the uber-conservative Free Republic that picked up the column. FR moderators apparently have absolutely no problem with supporters who suggesting that gays need to be "stopped -- dead." However, when I went on the site to casually respond to the article that was all about me, by name, look what happened:

SOURCE: Free Republic

Yup, that's right: They removed my response (yet oddly left my typo correction), and then banned me as a "troll." Because you know: What would I possibly have to add to a conversation about myself and my views?

And this was the sum of what I posted: My response to Prelutsky and my correction of a typo. That's it. That is what constitutes "trolling" in FR world apparently.

So once again, we see more proof of social conservatives' constant war on fair discourse. I thank them for giving me another example, as it will give me more mileage than the one comment ever would've.
