    Without a direct order.

    Sometimes; facts are useless without an understanding of what is written between the lines...
    As long as there were posts being made to it, it wasnt shut down. and, as of the crash, posts were being made to it.

    Depends on your definition of shut down.

    Are you gonna tell us it was still running at the rate of multiple pages of Trump news per day (50-75 posts a day)???

    the last time I looked at it was a few days before the crash. multiple posts per day were being made. I dont have an exact count of posts per day.

    I followed the thread closely...

    Cy, all of a sudden, quit posting the volume (by something like 75-80% down), over one day.

    There was a comment somewheres... something like being asked by someone on the Htalk staff to tone it down.
    Since the thread is gone, I cannot go back and find the exact comment...
    However I remember Cy and I had a string of PM's about it...
    Bottom line: Cy thought he was being told to be quiet... because the thread was too controversial.
    I suggested he have a heart to heart with Dad via PM...
    A few days later... Cy was gone from the site... and did not answer any more of my PM's...

    Stuff goes on... that is not apparent to all.

    Cy was asked to participate more in other forums rather than just his one thread. He did so, which slowed his posting in the Trump thread.

    Posting in other threads... maybe, maybe not...

    However that does not explain why he just vanished a few days after I suggested he have a (private) heart to heart with Dad.

    It smells a lot like Cy was asked to back off.

    However I would never expect anyone on any committee to ever say anything not supportive of the site...
    I would, OTOH, expect them to not blindly support the site (also called kissing up)... grin
    As in being honest before playing politics... which may be expressed by just not saying anything.

    BTW: this is one of the reasons GA would never serve this site (again, I was on the original ARPC): If GA saw the site playing politics... GA would speak out... let the chips fall where they may. And I suspect that would not be acceptable... corp politics and all that BS.

    That's what Cy himself said - he was asked to participate more in other threads.

    Maybe his absence is coincidental. There's no conspiracy in everything, GA.

    Im not sure what you mean by your committee commentary.

    In the South...
    We do not sell our souls for power...

    As noted... I do not expect anyone who is in power to compromise their perks...
    Reminds me of polecats...

    And with that...
    Gonna bow out of this conversation.

    You can have the last word if it makes you feel better.

    I’m just a southern redneck with no power or agenda. I personally got tiredof seeing the trump news right up at the top every time I logged on. It was more propaganda than news.

    No joke some of the memes and things he was reposting were made by Russians.

    I didnt mind it. He kept it only in that thread. What I did mind was that oftentimes the content wasnt even Trump related - Bush 1+2, Obama, Clinton, spare races, and the like. When I called him out on it he replied almost in a huff that somewhere it had a link to Trump
