Best Poster Award
This weeks poster award goes to..... struggleforfreedom80 for his posting on Libertarian Socialism and his handling of the comments.
His views are OWS to the core, and he shares them with confidence, clarity, honesty, and respect. Bravo to struggleforfreedom80.
Most Ludicrous Comment Award
This was a no brainer: http://occupywallst.org/forum/yeah-it-must-just-all-be-because-of-the-video/#comment-834275
GNAT is comparing the removal of a clitoris with the removal of a man's foreskin. Although I don't agree with either practice, it's clear they are on a different scale altogether! Female circumcision (removal of the clitoris) is much more barbaric than male circumcision and both acts cannot be compared at all.
Censorship Avoidance OR Moderator Slide By Award
Again, a no brainer. The Truther post by shadz66 which breaks the forum rules wins this one. After more than 10 years, conspiracy theorists still manage to get their nonsense passed the moderators and the "smart" and "logical" people of the world.
This post attracted many other 911 Truther posts this week, and it's the first time we see some in quite awhile. Here's another that slipped by the mods. The other ones were banned.
Bravery OR Tenacity Award
This goes to Lokibro57 (Odin) for believing in something and doing everything to make sure his voice is heard. Keep up the great work.
Downfall Of The Week Award
This goes to April who has been banned after almost a year of posting here. A long time user takes the plunge for her beliefs. She's now known as Buttercup. Cheers April. You're my girl.
