Cog Dis Put Down

Signs of intelligent life at WBAI.

I'm glad to be able to say that because recently I've been getting discouraged.  I've always enjoyed reading Cog Dis, a Blue Board character and station insider who whose cogent posts have more than once restored my faith in the WBAI community.The following series is a perfect example of the type of thing that goes on these days that shakes that faith.

The post that started it.

Here's a perfect example of how Albertson works the Blue Board. (click to enlarge)
See how it works? He raises questions that have little or no basis in fact, but will take on a life of  their own, which often happens with the help of a particular anonymous poster who usually responds positively to everything Albertson says, adding a new wrinkle to the fabrication,

It's no surprise to see nonsense like this being posted. What surprises me is that the moderator R. Paul Martin allows this sort of thing to stand, while censoring people like myself who support WBAI and don't tell lies.

Albertson of course picks up on it and expands it further in his usual attempt to take advantage of any opportunity to twist the truth:

So I'm lovin' this reply from Cog Dis:

That says it all. It's good that Cog Dis is there to clean up the messes since the moderator won't do it. Although his stated  goal is to "clean up" the Blue Board, he's more interested in censoring those "nasty" or "scatalogical" posts that seem to so offend his delicate sensibilities, rather than going after those who seed and spread lies.
