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.
