It was a bug, not censorship: A brief follow-up


In a post yesterday, I wrote about censorship on Buddhist blogs, a phenomenon I have experienced on several occasions. 

However, there is a different explanation for the most recent weirdness with Buddhist blogs on the topic of Syria.  In that post I wrote that a problem with the platforms could not be ruled out, as both blogs happened to be on the Patheos platform. 

And today, both those bloggers reported that, indeed, they had a bunch of comments awaiting moderation that they had not noticed.  It sounds like Patheos might have changed its platform a bit and caught these users by surprise.

Blogger does that, too. 

Once again, computers make fools of us.  

Anyway, James Ford very sportingly linked to my reply to him.
