This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Politico & BP Blatantly Conspire To Hide BP's Devastating Oil Spill

“The giant oil company BP doesn't do small-scale.

Not only is it responsible for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill -- "unprecedented" in its "volume, depth, and spatial scale," in the words of the National Research Council -- but the firm has mounted what certainly looks like an unprecedented PR campaign to minimize the damage, along with a years-long effort to dodge the financial consequences of its spill.

This week, Politico provided the company with another valuable platform for its PR -- a two-page online spread titled "No, BP Didn't Ruin the Gulf." The piece was written by one Geoff Morrell, who turns out to be the oil company's spokesman, as you'll discover if you read down to the bottom of the screen."

I've seen several flocks of geese heading south the last few days...   one was probably close to 200!!!

We got home late last night so I was outside feeding the 'barn' dog well after dark...

suddenly heard an owl "HOOT-hoot" hooting away not very far out in the woods!  I hope he didn't think I looked like a mouse out there!!!

Yesterday I saw a flock of Snow Geese fly over the plant I was visiting, and didn't know they segregated from regular Canadian geese.  Then while driving today I saw a flock feeding in a corn field.....all Snow Geese and a few Canadians mixed in.

I'll bet most of the areas that still haven't frozen are near the power plants ;) ;) ;)

The cold is good for the Great Lakes.  They don't lose water due to evaporation.

Didn't know this about Michigan.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Smoke wafting from wood fires has long provided a familiar winter smell in many parts of the country — and, in some cases, a foggy haze that has filled people's lungs with fine particles that can cause coughing and wheezing.

Citing health concerns, the Environmental Protection Agency now is pressing ahead with regulations to significantly limit the pollution from newly manufactured residential wood heaters. But some of the states with the most wood smoke are refusing to go along, claiming that the EPA's new rules could leave low-income residents in the cold.

Missouri and Michigan already have barred their environmental agencies from enforcing the EPA standards. Similar measures recently passed Virginia's legislature and are pending in at least three other states, even though residents in some places say the rules don't do enough to clear the air.

Will be interesting to see how much the lake levels rise
after a second year of global warming climate change  ;D
