Several posters have notices that, shortly after posting on recent Disqus-powered comment sections on a couple of recent articles on proposed legislation in Colorado, that would curtail citizens' freedom to decline vaccines.

There were no posts that were removed, posters did not receive admonishments or warnings; the posters (including myself) merely posted facts about vaccines, including the necessary citations,

I thought I'd start a discussion about it. It might be interesting to find out how many others have been blocked. I also think this kind of censorship needs to be brought out into the open. I think it's very frightening that they do this. I don't know if it's Disqus or CBS that is behind the censorship.

Personally, I am blocked from even viewing the comments page, though I keep getting emails alerting me to the vicious and insulting responses by the pro vaxers, so it looks like they have not been blocked.

I can't see them either..I wrote to the person in charge, and have yet to hear back as well.   Could be part of that 'central internet intelligence surveillance' going on....have you tried viewing from someone else's pc not affiliated with yours?  I'm going to do that when my dd gets home later..i'll post what happens.

Taxi - tell me the site to go to.  I will let you know if I see comments.  I can also post a respectful but critical question or comment  and let you know if I am then blocked.

There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

Thanks so much to Emmy: suddenly, I can see comments again. It appears that I am unblocked, though, sadly, every comment flagged by lilady was deleted.  Apparently, she's got quite a bit of power.

Thanks, Kathy, it was this one: http://denver.cbslocal.com/2014/02/20/kids-vaccines-spotlight-state-capitol/ and another, older article.

  Emmy, can you see the comments now, too?

Done!  I made boring, respectful but critical of the new policy post (with typos  - no edit feature @#$%) on the thread.  I will be interested to see if it poofs.

Lilady and Doris apparently have no life. Looks like they've gotten the order from Big Pharma to help this bill get fast tracked for approval.
