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.

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.

Now here's something relevant:

Stop Bullying Now

The social problems that result from bullying among school-age youth, and various efforts to prevent or stop such behavior, have been in the headlines frequently during the past two years. A national expert was in Monroe Wednesday to give a program on his perspective and ideas.

Cary Trivanovich is living proof that the lives of victims of bullying can change. He spent most of recess as a kid running away from bullies. But his life changed with the help of friends. “The bullied kid that wanted to perform has become the bullying speaker,” he said. “I have the opportunity to speak and perform at school assemblies with the hope of changing hearts with a few of my favorite routines.” Using pantomime accompanied by music and his own painful experiences as a child victim to convey his message, the national bullying expert said at a week-long, anti-bullying summit that parent mentoring and building self-esteem, character and confidence in children and getting them involved in activities can help stop “mean kids” from taking advantage of them. “If someone bullies you, it’s not your problem,” Mr. Trivanovich, 55, told about 150 persons at the La-Z-Boy Center at Monroe County Community College Wednesday night. “It’s their problem because they’re self-centered and hungry for attention. They don’t know what they’re doing.” Donald Spencer, superintendent of the Monroe County Intermediate School District who introduced the guest speaker, said bullying was one of the “most critical issues” facing schools and communities. He said local efforts to curb bullying in schools started at Monroe Public Schools last year and have spread throughout the county. He said citizens “desire a need to stop bullying now.” Mr. Trivanovich’s one-hour talk is the centerpiece of a week-long series of activities in county schools to raise awareness about bullying. School assemblies, peer mediation, parent mentoring, bus monitors and hotlines to authorities are effective ways to curb bullying in schools. “You can change lives in 45 minutes,” Mr. Trivanovich said about assemblies. “If you can get someone who knows the kids and who can bond with students, they will listen to them and their message can change lives. It’s one of the most effective ways to stop bullying.” Peer mediation helps train students on how to “disarm bullies – they have no fuel for the fire,” he said. “Get kids to police bullying activity on campus.” Cyber bullying can be just as devastating as bullying in the school yard. E-mails, instant messages, chat rooms and “sexting” can harm, harass and taunt other students to the point of committing suicide as a result. “Their dignity can be ripped away” with postings on the Internet and “wireless technology,” he said. “The cyberbully doesn’t care about the awful things they post. It may seem inescapable and the victims don’t see any way out.” After meeting with hundreds of counselors, students and community leaders in more than three decades of speaking and performing, he cited three reasons why kids bully. First, bullies are self centered and don’t recognize how precious someone else’s life and character are. Second, bullies want to be somebody. “We all want to excel at something,” he said. “Some kids don’t care about sports, arts or clubs. They witness violence and learn from the street. They intimidate someone with a lower self-esteem than them.” Third, bullies serve as substitute parents for the victim. “The kids are learning their world view from these peers, friends they’ve never met,” he said. “They glean their ideas on how to react based on their peers, or substitute parents. It’s sad that parents are not mentoring their children about virtue and ethics, especially with using the Internet.” He used Pantomime — a technique of conveying emotions, actions, feelings and messages by gestures without speech — to tell stories about growing up in California as a victim, the youngest of five children and attending six different schools in K-8. In the eighth grade, his life changed when his friends helped him build confidence and self-esteem by encouraging him to get involved in theatre. “I didn’t look for help and just assumed I was a loser,” he recalled. “I projected myself as a target by my demeanor. The bullies found me immediately. They made me feel worthless and I accepted it. (But) my friends changed me. It was the coolest day, I’ll never forget. They said I had talent and that I should audition for the next play. I got the lead role (and) started opening up as a person. They built me up in front of their friends. They treated me as an equal peer.” In a question-and-answer period that followed, he said children need to know the difference between tattling on someone who is a bully and telling someone in authority when a victim needs help. He said parents of a bullying victim should report the bully to the principal, who in turn will mediate a meeting with the parents of both children to “bring it out in the open.” Students also need a teacher or other adult they can consult with to report a bully. Holding an anti-bullying week in schools is a good opportunity to educate the public about bullying, but it can also send the wrong message to bullies. “To them, it’s a badge or holiday. They love it,” Mr. Trivanovich said. His final pantomime was titled the “Gift of Life” — a nostalgic and sentimental look at a man’s life from birth to elderly death. A Christian, he said the skit shows every life is a gift from God. “I believe life is very, very precious and we should handle it that way,” he said. “Ohmigosh, if we could realize how precious our lives are… we could stop bullying in a heartbeat.” Following Mr. Trivanovich’s talk, members of the Outreach Theatre at Monroe High School presented several skits on bullying under the direction of Sue Sacks. The day’s theme was “Kindness Generates Kindness.” Today, students around the country were encouraged to wear orange to show they are committed to ending bullying.
