HAS CENSORED YOUR COMMENTS? has a very rigorous, if one sided, comments policy.

Those of us who have tried to present the rational scientific side of the AGW discussion over at Anthony Watts' website, know from first hand experience how freely they cleanse opposing commentary.  In fact, it's the main reason I resorted to putting together this modest website in the first place.

A couple posts back, I was able to show an example of this censoring of information that by all rights deserves to be posted in a forum that boasts an interest in understanding the science behind our planet's Anthropogenic Global Warming situation.  {Well at least if they took that boast seriously.}

James Hansen’s climate forecast of 1988: a whopping 150% wrong

"From their Die kalte Sonne website, Professor Fritz Vahrenholt and Dr. Sebastian Lüning put up this guest Post by Prof. Jan-Erik Solheim (Oslo) on Hansen’s 1988 forecast, and show that Hansen was and is, way off the mark. h/t to Pierre Gosselin of No Tricks Zone and WUWT reader tips.

Anthony, WattsUpWithThat Censoring of Comments?

Another irritating part of Anthony's blog is how he tries to come across like some fair minded person, yet his site constantly censors and bars folks who bring civil yet actually challenges.

Case in point being a rejected post by TC:

"The repeated attacks on Hansen's 1988 scenario blow the cover on most so called "skeptics". The fact of the matter is that it is very easy to check the gas concentrations used in Hansen's three scenarios:

It is equally easy to check the current (2011) gas concentrations:
