Firearms Friday

I'll be joining up with Michael Dukes this morning to talk about the Google leviathan "unpublishing" my work.  Hopefully, this notice won't be taken down as a "community standards" violation before then.

Go to the show website to find an Alaska station or to listen online. They'll be calling me at 10:24 Eastern.

And no, this post doesn't mean the blog is back for business as usual. It means I'll continue using it for announcements promoting my stuff until I can settle in a new home, something I should have some time to seriously look into over the weekend.

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Thu, 04/07/2022 - 14:59

“As such, they have an interest in the outcome of this case because a positive ruling in the instant matter will assist them in their efforts to have their lawful property returned to them in the future and will help guide other courts in reaching the correct conclusion which is that bumpstocks are not machineguns,” the brief elaborates. [More]

I'm not resuming this blog per normal practices-- as I said in the last post, I will still use it to promote my articles, assuming this one doesn't get "unpublished" as well.  In the meantime, I will be using this weekend to scout out a new home.

Community Standards Strike Again

The War on Guns (Codrea) - Wed, 04/06/2022 - 10:50

It linked to "blue check" correspondent Paul Bedard's Washington Examiner report on a peer-reviewed study by John Lott published in the journal Public Choice
Incidentally, its link appears on a general Google search including on Google Cache, but is suppressed in a "News" search, with an article attacking Lott's work appearing at the top of the page by two "researchers" of undisclosed political affinity that my money says will turn out to be sympathetic to Democrats. 

My suspicion is an algorithm went searching to erase it from existence. If this is all it takes to get booted from a personal opinion and commentary blog, everything I post here is subject to being undone and Blogger is no longer a viable platform to publish on. Either that or some troll saboteur complained, and the same applies. Until I see if I can get this reversed, I'm going to need to limit activity here to promoting my articles as I search for a reliable repository for my work.
Remember when Facebook booted a post for wishing everyone a contemplative Bill of Rights Day?
