    Tried posting an article and it was rejected.  Was wondering why.

    zerohedge was blocked for me.

    I was really disappointed that it was blacklisted.  I’m bullish on AAPL, but we need to consider the other opinions.

    If this forum is about open communication, why are any sites blacklisted?  Especially financial sites.  Blacklist playboy.com maybe (not that theres anything wrong with it), but seekingalpha? Cmon.

    Now you have crossed the line, black listing Playboy, you have gone to far. LOL  Playboy is going to be available for the ipad next month.  :-D

    The Summer of AAPL is here.  Enjoy it (responsibly) while it lasts.

    No comment on the censorship.  This board is private property and they can do as they wish.

    I do have a comment on Zero Hedge.  It is unconventional, irreverent, a bit crude, and definitely has a point of view.  But the content is varied and often of high quality.  The writing is uneven.  The quality of comments is generally terrible.

    I value it and read it, because I often find things there that I don’t see anywhere else.  It has become very popular and is read by lots of “pros” these days.

    And once again, the porn industry drives the adoption of technology.  The convenience of taking it anywhere you want it (so to speak).  Now if we could only get the R2D2 projector from Apple too….  What to call it?  The iBall?  Hmmm.    Tried to run some projections of that through my spreadsheet but it just crashed.  Maybe the numbers don’t go that high.

    Back to topic, I would be interested in knowing what sites are blacklisted so I could avoid writing posts that will get rejected anyway.
