Hi,

I am curious as to why I was BoJo'd (banned) from Daily Kos.

I didn't have a hidden comment, my mojo was five bars, and yet I was banned with absolutely no explanation or warning. Honestly, I am not sure what I did wrong. Can you please direct me to the comment or comments that got me banned and the reasoning therein.

Honestly, I was surprised and shocked that this happened.

Anyhow, I would appreciate a reason for this and why it was done without a warning or notice.

Thanks,

Jon Segall

    Also, I realize that in real-time it's been four days... but with our small team, weekend helpdesk coverage by staff is skeletal. I realize it's inconvenient, but my family does like to interact with me now and then. :-)

    Yeah, because we wouldn't want to disrupt a really good conversation about those Nazi-like Israelis by pointing out how offensive it is to use that comparison.

    Thank you for your repsonse at least. I am not sure what I see is ban worthy there and I think that comment is quite mild comapared to 90% of other adversarial comments but, hey, that is Markos' decision.

    If it is temporary I will be happy to respectfully ask for reinstatement, if it is permanent I would ask if this is not about sides, then how come my relatively minor comment gets me banned while ZOG comments (Robert Naiman today), assholish snark far worse than anything I said (mizner and friends) .doesn't even get a glance?

    But, in any event thank you for at least starting to address this.
