The Fool pulled my post 1133 of 1/26, a short story entitled: "To make a long story short". Some of you may remember it. I received the email announcing as much today.

Here was the reason cited:

You may not use or allow others to use your Fool membership to: / Post or transmit any content that is abusive, vulgar, obscene, hateful, fraudulent, threatening, harassing, defamatory or which discloses private or personal matters concerning any person; /

There were no swearwords in this story. There were no obscene or hateful or fraudulent or threatening or harassing or defamatory matters discussed in this story. There were no real people--not even names--in this story. The story was about sex between two consenting adults.

I think the most risque word in it was "coming".

Of course, when the Fool can unplug stories like this, on a complete whim, you don't feel like contributing to it.

Who FoolAlerted this story? At least you should be able to meet your accusers.
