The comments section of Macrobusiness was temporarily shutdown tonight, after a comment supporting Scott Morrison’s temporary travel ban from India managed to get past the censors.
The comment from irregular user ‘Johnno1223’ stated that ‘the ban was only temporary and should be used to protect the citizens of EZFKA. Plus it has the added benefit of continually shutting down the migration ponzi, why are MB fans so angry about this?’
This triggered off a shitstorm in the comments section, bringing many MB subscribers and non-subscribers alike out from under their beds to pile on the anti-LNP heresy.
This was ended when the moderator formerly known as Gunnamatta aka Ritualised Forms acted swiftly to bar Johnno forever and temporary disable comments.
“That could have really got out of hand. DLS, myself and Becker had done everything we could to ban dissenting opinion,s but obviously we weren’t being vigilant enough,’ Gunna said.
“I thought people had already had enough of my 3000-word whinging about not being able to get my family home for the last 12 months, I was wrong.”
MB’s actions drew praise, with poster skippy commenting “well, where are all the COVID deniers now? Chortle.” Johnno said he would respond, but stated on another forum that he and everyone else had been banned and the skippy’s retort was ‘the usual patronising LARP.”
