By Jove! Censorship at Azekah!

The people at the Tel Azekah YouTube channel have deleted one of mine and all of George Grena’s comments! This means war!!!

Note: George’s comments were the relevant parts of his comments on the linked post, my deleted comment was “Was that a reference to the Tabor ‘fish’ fiasco earlier this year?” in response to Grena’s “Absalom’s Tomb phase” reply to my still-visible comment.

Update: Apparently, my still-visible comment is only visible to me. It is “A four-winged MMST? These are pretty rare! A clear photograph is a necessity (to determine whether the seal used to stamp the jar was of Grena’s Cursory or Lapidarist phase).”

Update: G. M. Grena posted a series of upside down jpegs on his blog chronicling the saga.

Update (one day later): Peace has probably been made.

  1. Apparently they found out that you’re a New Atheist. See what happens: first they come for the Young-Earth Creationists, & you did nothing. Then they came for you, & there was no one left to defend you…

      1. That’s really weird that it says Comments = “3” but only shows 2 (yours being absent). That must be a new feature of YouTube for selective censorship. I know you can vote down comments into invisibility, which is what happened to mine. Last night your fish fiasco comment had 3 thumbs up (the highest rated, moving it to the top of the page), yet mine had received so many thumbs down that it became hidden, but it still allowed users to click to make it visible if they wanted to see what you were replying to. Now they’re both gone, & everyone at the Azekah excavation can breathe a collective sigh of relief, & pretend a rare M4x was discovered.
