It seems that the universities are no longer the bastion of free speech they should be if the Conversation is an example. I have been banned from commenting on this article by the esteemed Stephen Lewandowski who we have all come to love and admire for his sterling research. The comment which got me into trouble was this:
It is symbolic that this green gabfest is being held in California the poster-child of green policies in action , policies that are sending the state bankrupt , one city at a time.
Perhaps the 20,000 visitors will compensate for a short time for the exodus of businesses heading for friendlier states.
I wonder if one of the topics for discussion will be the amount of jet fuel emissions caused by transporting 20,000 passengers to California.
Following being called an "idiot denier" which is obviously OK with the moderator's so-called community standards I attempted to reply to defend myself.
Well not only did the article stay and my comment not be published but it seems that I am now a non-person and any comments are summarily banned. I am waiting for the knock on the door!
I would be pleased for any readers to log on to the Conversation and join in the debate as I am now
UPDATE It seems I have been re-instated and a vigorous debate continues .
