Friends, Romans, Countrymen, hold onto your hats, because, no longer is Yours Truly being banned from DISQUS, but look at this response below from one of their journos:
The final word is, its neither confirmed nor denied.
I have noticed, since around mid-November, that posts are not being removed, nor are people getting banned. Hmmm.... I guess the dear old red nosed reindeer is about to come into an awful lot of money, and Jan Vermeulen too by the looks of things.
For those hangers-on that read my blog- Say goodbye to your favourite shitposting bowl MyBroadband, I am sure its going to be "absorbed" into one of their shitty prolefeed platforms.
For those who share my disdain- Its time to move on, they're gonna shut down comments anyway pretty soon. The metamorphosis into the MoT is complete. All good laughs do come to an end anyway.
But but but but Sonikku, does that mean you're no longer going to troll? Yep. I have lost interest now. Naspers are not a nice company to try and fuck with, and I don't want to end up being Bubba's bitch at the showers. Also, without the comments and possibly the forum, its just another boring as fuck news outlet with click-bait so the incentive to rub their arses with steel-wool is totally gone. However, I leave it up to you, the general public, to continue to fight them, to resist using their products and services, and stop making them rich.
But we want proof...
We all know by now that MyBroadband loves to censor comments, yes especially when its about people paying them, or more accurately, a partner of theirs. Look how deep the Multichoice partnership runs. This is probably the best example ever of MyBroadband's censorship:
Note to my overseas readers: South Africa is supposed to be a democracy, a free country. Well it is, when it suits some individuals, but the love of the censor, never went away, it just hung around like the Cold War- Now it's being used to silence smart people.
