en WordPress.com Forums › Support Censorship of sensitive news stories? Author Posts July 29, 2011 at 2:50 pm #667782 yodaamiMember I just added a post about Kelly Thomas, a homeless man who was beaten to death by six police officers in Fullerton, California. First, I was not able to post a link to a supporting news story, although I tried repeatedly: Police beat and taser “gentle” mentally-ill homeless man to death http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2019225/Kelly-Thomas-Police-beat-taser-gentle-mentally-ill-homeless-man-death.html And then I was unable to add any tags to the post, so no one doing a search can find the information. This has never happened before, so what’s the deal? Are “politically sensitive” issues banned from WordPress? If so, how is that different from press censorship? The blog I need help with is cooperativepartyusa.wordpress.com. July 29, 2011 at 3:09 pm #667875 mmadfanMember I doubt that’s the problem. Perhaps it’s a browser issue. Try logging out of wordpress.com, clearing your cache & wordpress cookies, then log in again and try it. (And that was utterly horrific.)
