Ace Beclowns Himself
Normally I’d ignore this, but “Ace” has posted something so moronically misguided and false it calls for a response: Charles Johnson Now Deleting Posts for Mentioning Hacked Global Warming Fraud Emails.
“Ace” says I deleted this comment by LGF reader ‘bosforus’ with “no explanation,” and that I’m “suppressing the data.” That’s just how evil I am.
But in the real world where people aren’t on hair trigger outrage watch, I deleted the comment not because it mentioned the Hadley emails, but because it linked to downloads of illegally obtained data.
“Ace” may have no problem with that, but I don’t want LGF to be used to circulate files that were acquired by breaking into a private email server. That’s the reason it was deleted.
I also condemned the hacking of Sarah Palin’s Yahoo email account. Unlike “Ace,” I’m trying to be responsible and consistent.
For the record, ‘bosforus’ himself told me about his comment, in the thread I put up specifically to discuss (not “suppress”) the Hadley email data, and asked me to delete it. I thanked him and explained why I didn’t want the links at LGF, right here.
And that thread about the Hadley emails, by the way, has more than 400 comments, with plenty of debate and argument from both sides. Seems like an odd way to “suppress” something.
If the clown shoe fits, “Ace.”
