Okay, I am not a mod here or anywhere, nor have I been in contact with a mod, nor reported any of your comments. However, I believe that I am the person you wrote that (or another similar) response to.

The original question was something like "Why are people hating on Julian Assange", and I replied something like "Because I found the multiple allegations of rape credible and I don't support rapists". You immediately wrote a long list about how he was misunderstood, it was all accidents, the women weren't reliable, the charges were dropped, the charges were only brought back as political pressure, the charges were only brought because he refused to get an HIV test anyway - honestly, I don't remember, that's just the standard replies I get from Assange fanbois when I say I don't support him.

Someone else asked you for proof of your claims; you wrote another reply with link(s). But someone read the link(s) and pointed out it didn't fully support your claims. They asked for additional information or clarification, and you essentially threw up your hands and said "Whatever, do your own research". And then sometime later, a mod removed your comment with the note saying "Yeah, no evidence".

Again, I had nothing to do with moderating or reporting your comment, but the removal seems to be based on not backing up your claims - "Yeah, no evidence."

Pathetic to remove a post so tame, let it stand so all can see the exchange. Some powerless powertrippers on the net.

If it was in Out of the Loop, there is only one mod there so that narrows it down pretty neatly.

You'd need to message the admins if you want to appeal.

i hate the etymology of "glowing"... but i still love the word.

glow (v.)

Old English glowan "to glow, shine as if red-hot," from Proto-Germanic *glo- (source also of Old Saxon gloian, Old Frisian gled "glow, blaze," Old Norse gloa, Old High German gluoen, German glühen "to glow, glitter, shine"), from PIE root *ghel- (2) "to shine," with derivatives referring to bright materials and gold. Figuratively from late 14c. Related: Glowed; glowing. Swedish dialectal and Danish glo also have the extended sense "stare, gaze upon," which is found in Middle English.

glow (n.)

mid-15c., "glowing heat," from glow (v.). Meaning "a flush of radiant feeling" is from 1793.

also from mid-15c.

from terry davis, who's original quote was about cia n*****s glowing in the dark...

now, ol terry is schizophrenic and i can ignore his racist hallucinations and appreciate the great work of TempleOS...

and "glowing" conjures a great radioactive picture of feds for me... but given that it comes from that quote, and was popularized on 4chan, it still makes me feel queasy

You know exactly why, it's because you're comment stalking. Grow up.

lol, no... but stop stalking me

I'm just surprised that you can see the removed comment. Every time one of mine gets yanked and I click the link I get an error message.
