News24, Stats and freedom of speech

I’ve been posting on News24’s various sections for about 2 years now.

About a month ago, I noticed that my posts were disappearing. I’d post a comment, then refresh the page and the comment would disappear.

At the time of writing this post I’ve made 3558 comments had 147,746 likes and 8,473 dislikes.

I am at a loss as to why this has happened, and even tried to email them in this regard.

They are quite vocal about freedom of speech and scream quite loud when one of their own is attacked. But the rules don’t seem to apply to anyone posting on their website.

We live in scary times as the ANC uses the SABC as its mouthpiece, with rumors of the same happening at E-TV.

A famous man once said, I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend unto the the death, your right to say it. This may soon be how the truth makes its way out into our South African world.

If the ANC have their way, we’ll end up being a Communist sponsored dictatorship as Zuma shakes hands and does deals with China and Russia as they don’t tend to have a problem with tin pot African dictators.

Nelson Mandela was a great man, a true leader and a giant among men. Zuma is something that you’d scrape off the bottom of your shoe and has been all but invisible during his second term.

I pray that I’m wrong about my News24 suspicions and that it’s just a technical thing.

I also pray that our democracy can survive the cANCer.
