Maybe Censorship is not the right word. The word is “Moderation”.
For all of you wordsmiths who cannot post without your F bombs, those will be posted. But by moderating the posts, we just pre-screen them to prevent someone from posting that Judge so and so has a big nose and lives at _________. So with that in mind, here are the early returns:
WOOPS: JUDGE BARZEE WROTE IN TO SPANK US:
Not to take away from your praise of DOM (my buddy, former trial partner and favorite federal blogger, because I agree with you that it’s great for his blog that Jimenez wanted to be heard on it), but, just so you know, Jimenez is a former US Attorney. Alex Acosta is the interim US Attorney until the POTUS appoints Jimenez’ replacement. Take care and keep having fun
Careful readers of the Blog know that Rumpole’s motto is SOMETIMES WRONG…NEVER IN DOUBT.
Thanks to Judge Barzee for correcting us.
This reader’s thoughts are similar to ours:
A tarnished reputation is hard to repair. Make it as hard as possible to do so.Censorship? Give me a break. Rump, you don't have to provide a soapbox for destructive comments. It's only censorship if you prevent them from posting the info ANYWHERE.
Yet there is a certain “something” about this genius’s ability with the English language:
censorship is FUCKING LAME. let it all come in. the words "fucking douchebag" have a certain special connotation that the words "stupid jerk" just don't have. it's funny that attorneys can deal with some really horrible people and crimes on a daily basis, but then get all upset about a few "bad words."
And this reader wrote in to say:
If you're worried about people using the site to spread ugly rumors, make it all comments require pre-approval. Going back and deleting and/or editing posts is for the birds.
Rumpole, try moderating, leave up the FU posts, just stop the ones that violate the rules. Plus, has anyone considered that Katie Phong is the blogger? Although I still think its a DUI guy like Blecher or Jimbo Best, or maybe both of them.
As always, the Captain is first with the late breaking election news:
Congrats to Assistant Public Defender Steve Levine, who yesterday was re-elected to serve a second term as a Commissioner in the Town of Surfside.True to his calling of public service, the job pays $1 a year
The Komisar Of Kounty Kort got these responses:
Everything's coming up Daisys and daffodils???
Komissar of Kounty Kort? KKK? Should we be running from white sheets too? Didn't know if that was innuendo or not.
Rumpole notes, stop seeing secret messages. We were thinking more along the lines of Krazy Kat Komics.
See You In Court watching that Judge Barzee…nothing gets by her.
