Blog Censorship in Branson; Hank Waters Would Be So Proud!

September 11th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

Columbia Daily Tribune editor Hank Waters will probably have a big smile on his face after reading this post from the Branson’s Edge blog:

A tax funded entity in Branson is spending public funds to limit free speech on the Internet. In fact; they’re spending nearly $400,000 to do it.

Since they hate me so much; they haven’t asked for my advice – instead they’ve issued a hate campaign to silence my voice. Due to the comment spam, I’m going to publish the message sent by Lynn Berry communications paid for by Branson taxpayers:

Dear Ones,

As many of you may know, there is a Branson blog out there in cyberspace


that is troublesome. If you read even a few paragraphs of the content, it will be evident that this blog, in its present state, is clearly harmful to the citizens of Branson; unfortunately, when you “Google” Branson, Missouri, it shows up on the very first page.

In order to get the attention of search engine administrators, there must be a hue and cry over the inappropriate content of this site. Attached are instructions to allow each of us to voice our opposition to allowing this site to continue to appear online.

If you should have any questions, please give me a call.

Thanks for your prompt attention to this matter,

Lynn Berry

    I actually moved the site and “De – SEO’d” my blog.

    It cost me a few thousand users. Still, the threats from the Branson Police Department were worse.

    Thanks for the Post!
