Anyone's Twitter account banned from TheJournal.ie - I've been unable to post there all week. Not that I'm overly concerned or anything, would still like to have a voice against the blatant liberal bias there.
Did they say why you were banned?

I make it a point to never use my main email or real names for anything online.

Nope, just cannot post a comment. It says "comment posted successfully" but it never appears on the page. No contact from the Journal either. I use the same name as here.

Oh sure you're a nobody until you've been banned from d'journal at least once.
I used to praise their liberal attitude to the comment section until my first ban.
One hate fact too many though and eventually they cut you off.
It seems if they banned everyone opposed to their agenda, their comment section would be pretty barren so maybe that's why they're not harder on the ban-hammer.
What got me the first time was a listing a number of recent brutal rape cases involving migrants and their short sentences (or in some cases none).
Can't remember what the second was for.
Don't know if I'll bother again but they seemed to have culled a lot of Trump supporters.
There is too much Trumpophobia on there that needs responding to.
They must be cacking it over the election.
They seem to print one Trump-hate article a day.

I take one look at the journal and go 'nope'. Too many petit authoritarian hall monitor types patrolling their little empire. And of course when times threaten their little shangra-la, the censorship goes into overdrive.

Used my Facebook account once, big mistake, started getting idiots trolling me on facebook.

Now I just view the Journal.ie without commenting.

Any of our worst posters, would crush posters from any other site, in a straight head-to-head debate, on almost any issue, but power comes from the barrel of a gun, and the Feminists are capable of anything! That is the only explanation for the exodus of drunks from other sites to this one. They must be driving the men of Érin to the drink, and then they turn up here in the agony aunt corner..

Some are here because I am here.
