I love my president because if I didn't, I would be with the terrorists.

"I love Our President because he unashamedly, thoroughly and completely sucks so hard
it made Jeff Gannon blush."*
*which explains why a mail order certified 'journalist' lasted so long.
**friend of AJ and Rex

Hey, don't piss on William Tecumsah Sherman like that!
Ok, I'll givce it a shot but I may come back later with more reasons because in the spirit of Republican patriotism, I want to throw this contest for myself by entering as many times as possible and then secretly slipping Kvatch some cold hard cash.
I love my president because I have always been a sucker for ancient Roman history and I think he is the perfect mix of the paranoia of Caesar Agustus and the excess and iron fist of Nero. I would throw in Caligula but I don't think Dear Leader has as good a sex life as Caligula did. Laura just doesn't seem like the bend over backwards, bark-like-a-dog, lets-include-the-poolboy type when it comes to sex. Pity.
And when our very own Rome burns, I am sure George Bush will be roasting marshmellows.

Another thing blogger does is if your blog is flagged as objectionable, they supposedly take you out of their public lists (and google?) and that area where they have featured blogs in their navigation area.
If you google "blogger censorship" you will get results taking you to people who have gripes wtih blogger, I suggest you check it out.
And for those that have blogger, I suggest possibly changing to another blog interface - I used to use blogger, but don't anymore because it seemed that their service always had bugs, I didn't like the community censorship and they were just getting too corporate for a bloggers own good.
It might be one way, but we all know that people can just flag anyone they disagree with, its not a good system of content flagging and presumably the higher ups would have better things to do than wade through thousands of flagged sites.
They have programs that look for word patterns and frequencies, that can recognize a matrix/text combination and flag it automatically without any human OR community intervention.
Like if key words appear together... I think it trips their tracker. Even in corporate America, there is software that can automatically sift through the thousands of emails to find key words like "resume" "salary" "monster.com" etc, suggestive of an employee looking for a new job or other corporate matter. This is a far less insidious example, but this capability is not new by any stretch. The regular MSM news has even reported on algorithms and text sifting capability.
I'm not sure that there are any blogging programs that would eliminate censorship these days. Case in point: now there are even 'robot' crawlers that sift through blogs looking for illegal use of copyrighted images. There are no paid people in suits surfng the net- I think flagging is automated..
Thank you, Kvatch.
