hey Sandy, I've got a title for this one:Daysman gets banned from the frayNo reason given by the editor, no communication whatsoever, the secret e-mail campaigns are working with this guy. I was stalked, attacked, and when I complained; ignored. Then I was banned.Outside the tiny world of BotF, millions of websites prove that 09/11 was an inside job and the moon landings were faked. But inside BotF only dangerous people say those things. what idiots.
Hi Days, really sorry to hear you've been banned. I personally reported several of the posters who were being allowed to go after you. As you say apparently this editor [fell for it] believes in censoring free speech.Have you tried getting back on with a new nick or with a different computer?Have you written the editor and tried to reason with him or is he avoiding you altogether? You have every right to know why you have been banned...flood his inbox asking why?You are absolutely entitled to your opinion...I do not care what it is.Take care, hon...keep trying. Have you considered this may be a good thing? I believe the Fray and BOTF in particular is completely toxic.
He did the banning in two steps, and he deleted all my requests for an explanation before he wiped out my remaining nics. I also reported Schad and Demos for abuse and received no answer to those e-mails. Whatever his reasons are, he is clearly not going to give them to me. I'm not wasting any more effort on the guy. And besides, like you say, BotF has been relegated to a toxic dumping ground... It looks to me like they intend on shutting down the entire fray, so I guess banning fray nics is no big deal. I have two nics with the same names (DaysMan and dayslight) that are functioning just fine on the outside, able to post immediate replies to the articles. I think that's where they want everyone to migrate. Problem with those posts is they can only be a few words, and there are no posting tools... so it is American Bandstand type format, after the band plays a song, give Dick Clark a quick reply ("it has a good beat") and then shut up, no one cares what you really think and no space is provided to hear it. It's not that readers were not interested in the fray long post compositions ... readers were, but Slate didn't want that, they just want their writers to get all the attention. It is really hard to find a forum that will let you create long posts (other than my blogs that no one will ever read)My son is still writing Haiku, maybe he will let me post one in your comments. Prepare to be amazed.
I too feel WaPO wants to get rid of the frays so they will just systematically get rid of it without saying anything to anyone.I would love for you to post your son's haiku...he already amazes me. :)
We have a couple of ponds in our condo complex. When we meet Daniel coming off his bus, to walk home with him, we usually walk by the ponds. A couple of days ago, there was the big blue egret in the closest pond and we walked quietly by him and he didn't fly off until the other kids came along. Closest I've ever gotten to him. Sometimes I fight with the geese for sidewalk share, but the egret keeps his distance. Daniel wrote this Haiku named PondsThe ducks quacking loudThe willows shade me todayThe rabbits running
The one thing I love about living in Texas is being able to live out in nature. There is an owl that comes up to our house in the evenings and sits in a big tree out on the periphery of our yard...he just watches to see what we're up to. If I walk out on the deck he hoots at me and I'll hoot back and we do that back and forth for about 10 minutes. Nature is such a blessing.I hope you continue to encourage your son, he is doing a good job writing haiku and you can tell he is really paying attention to what he's observing. Tell him, well done for me.I would consider starting him a poetry blog, Days so that others can share his poetry and it will all be there in one place. I think you should let him set up the blog himself so he can take credit for all of it. Just sit there and walk him through the steps...just an idea.
