CiF comment of the day

In response to CiF commenters’ complaints that their remarks accusing Israel of practicing apartheid had been deleted by CiF moderators, a commenter named “iamid” aptly pointed out (inArchitects against Israeli occupation, CiF, Oct 4):

A boy can hope, can’t he?

(Alas, my dreams of a more enlightened CiF moderation policy was, indeed, a pipe dream.  “iamid’s” comment not only was deleted, but has subsequently disappeared completely.)
