Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help. Please consider donating by hitting the PayPal button above if you’d like support free speech and what we do in the face of Silicon Valley censorship. Or just buy our award winning book about the dangers of censorship and rise of Turtleboy:
This morning (not last night) SJW Hunter wrote a blog about The Patch’s Dave Copeland publishing a story about Leigha Genduso’s burn book, without bothering to mention where he got the story from. In fairness, it appears that within the last few minutes they’ve updated their story to include a link to Turtleboy. So a lot of you reading it might say, “This is fake news Turtleboy, you’re mentioned right in there.” Just understand they only did this because they were publicly shamed. It’s a shame that it takes a public shaming in order for alleged sources of news to hold themselves to basic journalistic standards.
Stuff like this might not matter to some people, but when it’s what you do for a living your reputation is everything. Our critics love to claim that we don’t break real news, so every link we get proves them wrong. It’s not different then your kid getting in trouble at school for copying someone else’s homework or plagiarizing without citing. If we hold kids to this standard we should certainly hold adults to it.
P.S. Please tell me more about how public shaming doesn’t work.
