Commenting at The Standard is always precarious, knowing that deletes and bans can be doled out at any time while lprent and other commenters abuse with impunity. An insidious imbalance of power.
No one deemed ‘enemy’ is immune.
“What team rules did Catton break, alwyn?”
How about treason
ungrateful [Deleted – we have standards even if you and Plunkett do not – MS], that about sums it up.
Calling her an ‘ungrateful cow’ was deemed to be beneath The Standard standards. But Lynn Prentice soon demonstarted that there are double standards. In response:
Oh piss off you complete jerk.
To allow people to have the opportunity to state what their opinions are is exactly why I volunteered into the army.
Having gutless stupid gits like you slagging off people because they speak their mind is exactly why I would like to kick bigoted arseholes like you and Sean Plunket out of my country.
You are a stupid dickhead..
He joined the army to protect his right to slag people off with he edit/ban finger hovering?
In his next breath he took aim at me:
Sean Plunket is in my opinion a rather stupid arsehole, a blowhard who clearly is incapable of thinking, and the type of fuckwit bigot who makes me ashamed of ever having put on uniform to defend him.
He is an absolute disgrace of a kiwi. My bet is that he has never bothered to do much for his country. He appears to be the type of shiftless bastard who only ever helped himself – a neolib fuckwit. Hopefully he will rot in hell.
And you are not much better.
I don’t know if Plunket fought for his country to protect the right to abuse people. I suspect Prentice didn’t exactly fight for his country either. He certainly doesn’t fight for free speech.
It’s a cardinal sin (a breech or blog policy) to criticise authorsd and moderators at The Standard and I’ve been banned before for criticising their abusive double standards and abuse of power.
I’ve always used YourNZ to put things on public record that are at risk of disappearing elsewhere so that’s what I’m doing here.
And Paul is appropriately promiment there. He must have been on their stalker roster last night. Seven times on that one thread he tried to disrupt me. And he did similar with others, including targetting Wayne Mapp. Attack and disrupt and blame the target for derailing the thread. Ironically his first hit was “Warning. Peter George is attempting to derail the thread.” He’s learnt that off others, it’s a Standard tactic.
Such is free speech on The Standard.
Prentice: “To allow people to have the opportunity to state what their opinions are is exactly why I volunteered into the army.”
He must have spent his time in the Army peeling spuds, he certainly doesn’t seem to have learn anything about abuse of power or free speech.
