Among unfounded allegations of Obama lying, get BANNED for pointing out lies by Clinton.
Seriously, I understand that there was a hint of tastelessness in the post, but it was justified derision.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

So Hillary lied about the sniper fire, the poster, looking at the picture, jokes that the reason she was standing there with a child instead of running for her life is that she was 'using the child as a shield'.

Considering how much other derision there is around here, can someone point to the rule that gets someone banned for posting a story that a political figure may well have lied?

Anyone?

1. Maybe I should be ashamed,
but I thought it was kind of funny and harmless. Onion-esque, in a way.

2. how do you know THAT is the reason the person was banned?
were you privy to the mod meeting where they discuss whether to ban or not to ban?

7. I will.
4. Content: Do not post messages that are inflammatory, extreme, divisive, incoherent, or otherwise inappropriate.

That post was wrong and if the poster was canned, it was most likely for more than one offense.

I say this who has been chastised by the mods for going overboard. And when I have been, on reflection, they were right and I was wrong.

I would recommend you also familiarize yourself with this rule:

6. Forum Administration: Respect the moderators and administrators, and respect their decisions.
