The Palin camp has been extremely vigorous in their attempt to market her, so you can whine about people singling her out, but it's because nobody else pushes for that kind of (or that much) exposure.

    Again, the article wasn't very critical at all, but I could see somebody saying that Slate is pointing out that marketing yourself as a (future) candidate of the people while ensuring that 1/10th of the comments made to her are deleted is hypocritical. But that criticism certainly seems fair, doesn't it?

    I re-read the article, Mustachio, Bubba and John -- and it seemed less critical with another read. (Boy! Do I hate admitting THAT.) Still, the title of the article is a negative cast: The Facebook posts Palin doesn't want you to see.. While the article 'says' hers was the most edited, was it? (Sounds kinda' lame, ha! even to me...my comment, that is.) I guess I'm going to have to admit that my first blush was coming from a defensive mode. (And this from someone who would hate to see her be the Republican nominee.) Thanks to ya'll for making me think. ;-)

    It's ok we all do it.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    having the most posts deleted - as a raw number - might be nothing more than an indication that her internet traffic is much greater than any of the other republican contenders
    can't image much posting is out there pushing julieannie, huck, the mormon, newt, jindal or mccain
    only Ron Paul has a potential youthful following which would be comparable, and he has not ginned up his machine yet, while palin has a massive head start on every one

    Facebook has quite an incredible reach that doesn't really have much to do with youth, public figures like Paul and Palin are lightning rods for attention; good or bad, and I doubt youth identify with Palin as much as the 30+ woman demographic does.

    when you are my age, 30+ year old women are included in the category "youthful"

    eerr sorry that came out wrong, I meant to say many women that age on up identify with her "mama grizzly" shtick.

    Not really. The internet is a very crude place and means for content providers or public figures to control the level of feedback that appears is praise worthy. Part of the problem with the blogging world was not merely the content providers, much of which could be questionable of quality, but most of all, the comments that appear on the entries. Some of the comments were not terrible, but the ability to control the image is to be expected and not really worthy of criticism.

    Like you try to stretch for stories on Obama? I guess that makes you and the author of the article even.

    But you didn't actually address what I was talking about. Palin is a candidate who tells you that she represents mainstream America and yet her people are deleting what mainstream Americans want to say to/through her; your comments do address why that is, but just because there's a reason doesn't automatically make it ok. Slate's article made to comparison to town hall forums -- they are made to look like valid forums where anybody can ask questions or express their concerns, but in reality they are an instance of de facto censorship. Whether or not it is reasonable to conduct a forum in that manner does not negate this.
