I wrote a piece a few hours ago and noticed that someone had posted it to Hacker News. I never know when one of my pieces will get posted there or Reddit or wherever, so it is always pleasant to see.
The piece was about my concern about law enforcement and its role in the Apple Gizmodo situation and now the AT&T Goatse situation.
The piece got at least 10 points, and made it to the front page... where it was then killed.
This is amazing to me. I am not really a part of the Hacker News community, but the fact that apparently they censor articles because they disagree with the content is incredible. I thought the idea was, if people don't like something then that is reflected in the voting. But I guess sometimes Mr. Graham (the HN proprietor), knows best what is safe for people to read.
Next thing you know I am sure I will be banned from *reading* Hacker News. I'm sure its coming.
