    Default This announcement has nothing to do with HH

    In case anyone's interested, I've again been banned from mercola.com, this time in advance of any post. I found the message this morning when first attempting to log on. Once I cleared mercola.com cookies I was able to view the day's main story but was not allowed to post or "like" anything. In case anyone's curious, the date is November 17 and the topic is highly politicized. When I logged on there were 109 posts and roughly half of them threatened to discontinue their membership as a result of the site owner's political stance.
    I wonder whether any of my friends is keeping track, because I've lost count of the number of times I've been banned. It's over a dozen, for sure.

    Does that mean you were banned 'preventatively'? Yikes!

    Yup, a preventive strike. I just checked in again (6:30 p.m. here) and comments are up to 260. At first I thought all the negative remarks had been moved south, but no, they're scattered, so it's hard to tell just how many are outraged and vowed to drop the site. Easily half, that's my guess. Anyone who would like more detail can email or message me.

    I have not gone back to look, but as I recall (I had a performance that afternoon, so did not give this a lot of my attention), I actually was somewhat gratified to see that many of Mercola's followers were outraged that he seems to be espousing some right wing nut thinking. Some of the followers have dismayed me in the past, with their right wing and libertarian points of view. Perhaps later I will need to go back over there to take a look at this debacle.

    Things are getting pretty heated over there. I like and respect that HH discourages its users from opining on topics like politics, religion, etc. A health and wellness site should stick to health and wellness.
