Never Start Off With An Apology..

.. so I will. Sorry, but a recent bout of what my dearly departed father-in-law used to colourfully call the flying axhandles* has knocked the stuffing out of this elf over the past week, precluding the regular Binks link-dump.

It’s being worked on, and should be up in the next 48 hours.

Your web-servant,

    ~ BACK IN THE DAY, I thought that perhaps Mark Steyn’s book-title Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech And The Twilight Of The West might be a little overwrought. Lights out? really?

    Mark was quoting Viscount Edward Grey– who is probably best remembered for the remark he made to a friend one evening just before the outbreak of the First World War, as he watched the lights being lit on the street below his office: “The lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our time”.

    Well, somebody just shut down my ability to run Free Canuckistan freely. Not quite as bad as the special treatment meted out twice to Marginalized Action Dinosaur, but still. Who? Looks like Asad Raza or somebody else is targeting Free Mark Steyn, and I’m now forbidden to post new material here for the moment.

    So I got this.. “Warning: We have a concern about some of the content on your blog. Please click here to contact us as soon as possible to resolve the issue and re-enable posting.”

    No details, evidence, contact info.. blog disabled because of.. none of your business, puny blogger!

    This is probable jihad, asshattery, lawfare, and attempted silencing of the web. I will be downloading all my files from here, and looking for a new blog-home ASAP if they continue.. nah, I’ll make a backup site anyway, and double-post.

    The lights are going out, peeps. Now is the time for all good men and women of the West to consider their futures. Will they shut up or be silenced? Hope they are fed to the alligator last? Or stand and fight, even if the odds are long, and the future uncertain and darkening.

    The last time I was silenced, irate Episcopalian liberal webmasters (out of LA & NYC) twice hacked my Anglican news blog offline (the second time, deleting weeks of archives). I’m still here.

    Any good suggestions for new blogging sites with a solid free speech policy?

  2. I got a similar message, except from my Email provider. And they likewise shut me down with no reasons, details, etc. (Got it re-opened though).

    And my wiki is being firewalled from public terminals (i.e. read “municipal bureaucrats” — the lefty Miller crew?) Again, no clue why. But I found a way around it — a bit of an inconvenience but I discovered how to “trick” the terminal to bypass the firewall (I won’t divulge how here — enemy techs are watching! — but if anyone has a similar problem on public terminals, I can send the info to Binks privately).

    People who use public terminals usually cannot afford a web connection at home. I’m so glad that our Left “advocates for the poor” are being inclusive by making sure they are censoring us along with you “rich guys”. It would have been such an injustice to have omitted the poor. After all, public terminals are often our only means of communication — censorship would be meaningless without the absolute silence it means for the poor.

    Thank you, oh great wise Marxist censors — we the entitled poor have the right to have our voices silenced even more than the privileged rich!
