Using the term sociopath is also shunned by AOL. It's not a dirty word. It is a medical term. They need to get over themselves.
RHE AOL censorship continues
Glad to see I'm not the only one. Don't ya love how AOL has insulated themselves to ANY and ALL criticism. I have bee trying to find out WHY I am banned. I've written in multiple areas. I haven't actually called them on the phone, but I KNOW I will be put on hold until crist comes.

So hear you. The huffpost propaganda is bad enough but, now they force this pride bs into my personal computer desktop wt actual f? Keep your lefty political bs off MY PERSONAL FING COMPUTER, FASCISTS
Don't think it is just YOUR views that are being tossed. I have the same complaint. They have a stupid computer that searches for words. In the AOL world **** or HITLER simply do not exist. I was ban (At least I think i am, They never told me) Because they tossed what I thought was a very nice post. But I had copied it first so I reposted and removed every sentince till I found the BAD word. It seems I used the "F" word. FAITH!
apparently you hurt someones feelings and have been shadow banned ! Go in and start flagging all the left wing comments you can still do that!
Don't feel like the lone ranger. I was kicked out too. I had copied the post and I kept reloading it until I found the WORD that had lead to the action of banning. Turned out I used the "F" word.

every single time I try to post a comment on an article it gets rejected. Not because its violent or bullying but because its a conservatives viewpoint...Left Much Aol...You suck and if I didnt have to use you for my email, I would quit your f'd up service...
So now I suppose I am totally blocked from making a comment on AOL I now get the "I am violating community standards NO MATTER WHAT I WRITE! I typed TESTING TESTING TESTING and it was rejected as violating community standards. They never tell you WHAT you violated.
I was kicked out for using the "F" word. FAITH!
I received the dreaded I can't post anymore because Ive been a bad boy AND VIOLATED COMMUNITY STANDARDS. Now this was NOT for using bad words but every day words like FAITH! I can't reference HITLER as he didn't exist. Can't use **** **** DUMB AND STUPID like in that's a STUPID idea
And the worse part is THEY DON'T TELL YOU THE TERRIBLE CRIME.

Aol, has gone beyond their community guidelines and are now just power hungry or control freaks. Even if I try to post a nice or positive comments, they block me and say it is against their community guidelines. How is "I love Dolly Parton", against community guidelines?? Aol has blocked me for 2 years now. Enough is enough.
aol sure likes yo block comments on anything that makes republicans look good or says dems are wrong
Thomas Hawksblood commented
Who determines what Articles we can reply to and what ones we cannot. Who's brainstorm Is that? Nothing to do with free speech.
Following the article about Dr. Ruth, a commenter named DEBORAH called her a *****. When I objected to this, my objection was denied, as were a couple comments praising Dr. Ruth, which are still awaiting "approval." What on earth is going on with your "evaluators??
Roy Patton commented
I have been blocked from posting comments also and don't know why. I guess I should just cancel my account along with me roommate's account. We both are also paying members.
aol is in bed with the left and is off the hook censoring while ignoring the lefts violations!
DIANNE CASTELLI commented
Please tell me how long am I going to be blocked from making a comment on a news article. AND DO NOT SEND ME YOUR COMMUNITY GUIDELINES -- I understand that. I just want to know how long I am going to be punished for making a comment your censor did not like. I want you to tell me how long I am going to be blocked. I am a paying AOL customer, and to be treated this way is highly insulting.
what was I blocked for using the word yawn ?
DIANNE CASTELLI commented
When a comment is blocked in comment section of AOL news, why is the block on the account permanent?? I am a paying member of AOL, and just because a censor didn't like one of my comments, citing "community guidelines" that doesn't mean I should be blocked permanently.
