Strange happenings in lefty-land, folks. First Ant Roenous's Tim Blair-uses-a-sockpuppet post disappears from Pure Poison. Then Rogenous's follow-up post at Grods is deleted without explanation (cached here). Now Jeremy Sear's apology to Blair, on behalf of the Pure Poison crew, is stealthily obliterated (cached here). What's going on?

Perhaps its time for three blogs with the same theme, Sear watch.

So Ant is not busy with a new job or real life, as he said?

It is disappearing posts without any explanation that makes you look sneaky and dishonest.

Something like, "NOTE: We have deleted the post by Jeremy Sear entitled 'An Apology to Tim Blair' following a request from our editors" [or whatever the reason was] would have possibly kept you from looking quite so sleazy.

You know damned well that if Bolt or Blair were to go around disappearing entire posts without notice, hoping that no-one would catch on, you would be screaming that loud that you'd be heard fair out on Nauru.

Instead, you disappear comments, posts, change things, etc, and people DO notice. And they wonder whether you're possibly just congenitally incapable of honesty and openness. And if that is the case, you have no cred in attempting to criticise anyone else.
