There is no censorship. The fact of the matter is that this post is nothing more than spam to generate traffic to a blog. I have reported this post as such.

If you wish to have a "meaningful discussion" please post the relevant points in a forum post, not just some link to some other site.

BBadger- the blog article deals with Burning Man (regardless of it's quality), and it's not a commercial site. It doesn't really qualify as "spam" unless he keeps posting it. In that case I'm sure it will get pulled.

Possibly because it is spam?

Spam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it...

You're not being forced to read it any more than I am. It's just a craptastic blog article at this point.

These days though, the line is blurring between spam and not spam, especially with some sites trying to earn "Likes", ad revenue, or other kind of traffic that may be of value even if it isn't directly a product being sold. Seeing two "look at my 'critique'" posts in two days just gets my spider senses tingling.

But anyway, there some burn prep to attend to. Hope to see you folks on the playa.

The pretending that this isn't actually my blog with those "look at this wacky guy" posts offends me. You want to post about your blog on eplaya, fucking own that.
