WE Blog Censors Own Supporters

by Shaolin Monk

What a month it has been! Following a wave of unseemly spam attacks on a our little blog of freedom, which we suspected came from only one individual, we restricted commenting to registered bloggers only. This reduced the number of named posters down to just three. It then became clear that the source of many posters came from one deranged person, who misguidedly believed that he could scare traffic away from WHAT Enlightenment Uncensored $$$.

However, our move was a nothing compared to "WHAT Enlightenment" blog's more draconian methods since they stopped all posting completely and requested comments to be sent by email. Very few posts arrived except the regular ones from some self-appointed therapist who posts love on WE blog and hatred on our WEU blog. Talk about schizo-bozo-mundo!

WE have reopened their commenting facility but only after ensuring that controversial posts (anything that contradicts their line that 'Andrew and IEF have no spiritual value') can be removed within seconds.

We heard from one distinguished and respectable poster, Mr Graham Blenk, who found that all his posts had been removed from WE blog simply for questioning the tone and mood there.

Below we print Mr Blenk's post which was removed and re-posted over 20 times (by persons interested in truth and free expression). If you feel that WE blog is cutting your tongue and discouraging free-thinking then post on our blog, and like Craig Tindale says keep posting on their blog. Your message will be heard.

Graham Blenk:

Censorship is truly back in full swing here at WE blog. My post from May 21 is constantly being deleted by the faceless censors.

Taking a tip from Craig Tindale I am taking the liberty to repost it, so you can see what is really happening here.

The thread sequence is slightly off-beat but the relevancy is still preserved.

To the last anonymous poster:

I don't see how your quoting another anonymous poster's unsubstantiated claims that WHAT Enlightenment Uncensored $$$ was created by a Brad Roth does anything but spread error. Nor does the fact that there hasn't been any further posts at WHAT Enlightenment Uncensored $$$ give any much needed validity to your remarks.

If the same logic was applied then presumably Hal Blacker is Helene since he has stopped posting, WE deleted swathes of posts and stop all commenting for weeks.

The posting continued unabated over at WEU blog clocking up 65 comments until posters had to register. See

Craig Tindale then posted WEU that WE should allow open posting once more, and WE then complied. This would validate WEU's existence as a necessary voice in this censored debate.

As for deleted posts they can probably be found in the WEU Uncensored-Bin.

Considering the ridiculous spam/flames by opponents of WEU, though, I would not be surprised if they were just not deleted.

Interestingly, you say nothing about the gay blog that came and went. Possibly the same author as the "That Enlightenment" blog of which you refer?

Since WE blog re-opened its commenting the posts have become quite nasty towards Andrew. Or am I just too sensitive?

I have to say that WE Blog administration is so creepy. I had my own posts deleted there months back. They were quite unremarkable but no different from many other bland posts there.

The WHAT Enlightenment ??! blog has a good new article on Andrew Cohen's financial exploitation of students, and how the community tries to keep disaffected students from leaving. Pretty cultish and scarey stuff.

Also, there's a new blog with all the basic articles from WHAT Enlightenment ??! on the Cohen cult at http:// . Well worth reading.

Good to see that WE supporters are visiting WEU blog - if only to promote their shoddy goods .. he he

I pray these naive fanatics might free themselves from the hidden agenda of WE blog's faceless micro-managers.

Posts at WE blog have stopped, since they insisted that posters register with Blogger.

"Tom's River, New Jersey?"
Hmm, you'd think that someone who lived there would know how to spell it. Sockpuppets galore on WE...

Sorry, Brad, you already lost.

Yep, it looks like WE could be using fake posters, especially if literate people can't even spell their own neighbourhood addresses , )

Judging by the amount of attacks that this WEU blog gets from irrate WE supporters I would imagine they have plenty of spare time on their hands to write fictions.

Freebird is now also appearing on Shalom Place discussion forum with a star performance and advertising "what enlightenment". Give it up, this bird can really fly. The forum is world wide.

How did you know that Freebird posted on Shalom Place? Freebird has only posted there once and only a few hours ago.

Are you Freebird or are you and "freebird" two more of Hal Blacker's sockpuppets?!

This entire site--and almost every contributor on it--is obviously a "sockpuppet" of "Handy" Andy Cohen.
(I guess, you could just call him Mr. Hand for short...)
Having fun yet, Handy Andy? Planning to grow up, Mr. Hand?
