Nothing sneaky or dishonest in the stealthy disappearance of a Random Brainwave post:
The post was reposted higher in the order of posts so I could beat Surname in the RB challenge to do more posts about Beck than Beck does about Sear & Loewenstein (or is that Lowenstein).

The original post was posted online in the evening of 1 June and was silently pulled before midnight (AEST). A rewrite of the post eventually reappeared at 5:56 PM (AEST) on 2 June. Refusing to accept ownership of their indiscretions is a defining characteristic of the PP/Grods/RB crew.

Er, Random Brainwave people don't write for Crikey, and aren't involved with PP. Another stunning piece of stupidity from one of Beck's eunuchs.

Er, your link doesn't demonstrate what you claim.

Beck, I use google reader, too. It ain't a conspiracy. The two posts are identical. Except for the word "alleged" inserted in the latter one. And it kinda proves the point, dontcha think?

I'm not that obsessive, so I concede that you may have picked up a coupla changes that I missed. Why do you reckon those changes were made? Stop being coy.

Toaf, if you want to know why the post was rewritten you need to talk to the RB crew; I'm not going to speculate.

Dude, you already did. You blamed it on sneaky dishonesty.

Here are some straws, Beck. Clutch at them.

When I start typing "your" instead of "you're" it's time for bed, so good night, Toafy.

Yeah, noticed the disappearance. Had the Crikey blogs page open and saw the comments change from three to two when I refreshed. Will post on it first chance I get -- watching the footy is way more important.

Heh. Monkeywrench/Willt/PP Boyz criticise Bolt's moderation process. Monkeywrench seriously has issues.

"Bolt could write that he prefers cantaloupe to honeydew melon and he'd draw the same reaction from the Boyz."

And why shouldn't he prefer cantaloupe to honeydew? You're just another member of the international racist honeydew conspiracy!
