Among the candidates to replace Michael Bloomberg as mayor of New York City is Anthony Weiner, a one-time Congressman. Weiner had this problem, however, that forced him from office, and it looks as though he's still got that problem.
What problem, you ask? Here's the rundown - and some thoughts on what he should do with it - from my buddy David 2 in this week's BRUTALLY HONEST commentary: http://brutallyhonestcolumn.blogspot.com/2013/07/week-of-07292013.html
As always, your thoughts and opinions are welcome, either here or on David's page. Comments made here will be forwarded to David, who appreciates any and all feedback.
Thanks for reading.
"If you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear." How many times have you heard THAT being said from self-serving, freedom-hating, pompous politicians, talk-show hosts and their sheeple? Plenty, I'll bet. Believe it or not, we ALL have a few skeletons in our closets. But why do we continually subscribe to this lie?

I'm finding it more and more difficult to be polite about these, Brent. This website is a medium for sharing your thoughts, beliefs, knowledge, passions, fears, and hopes - not to be a proxy for your "buddy" David's blog.
I'm going to report you to a moderator if this continues.
Mathew, I whole-hardheartedly disagree with you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with posting information about an upcoming podcast. It doesn't matter if the material is by Brent's buddy or by any other person. There is another member here who posts when they have uploaded a current broadcast and I look forward to the notification. Furthermore, many prominent voices and organizations in our community have profiles or groups on Atheist/Nexus. Many of them have podcasts, blogs, and video pages of their own and are also featured speakers at conferences.
Just look at the bottom of our homepage. Many are shown.
The key words in your statement being "profiles" or "groups". None of the figures you've listed above hawk advertising in the discussion forums (and yes, I do consider this type of posting advertising). Advertisement of such things should be located within its own group, particularly when the podcasts in question typically garner little to no comments or traffic whatsoever and serve to take up space on the homepage, and especially when they consistently seem to be a copy and paste job on Brent's part, lacking in any substantive remarks from him personally.
This is advertising, and it belongs somewhere else. That's the bottom line.
Mathew, I post here, on Facebook and on Twitter concerning David's commentaries and radio show. I've known the guy for a good 14 years now and I consider his commentaries and show to be very important - no one is speaking out like he is on corporate radio.
What is it that you REALLY object to? His point of view possibly? Have you even bothered to listen to the show and/or read his commentaries?
If I had an issue with the content, I would have cited my negative opinion on it, not demanded that you stop posting to the front page. Your relationship with David or his standing with you are not on trial, and I have no issue whatsoever with you posting. I'm simply asking you to do it to a group forum, and advertise to those who are interested. Again, this has nothing to do with the content itself - the location that you post it to is the problem. We had a similar issue with another member not very long ago.
To be perfectly clear, and to sum up what I'm trying to say: I don't have any personal opinions on you whatsoever. Point in fact, you seem like a perfectly well-reasoned and friendly individual. If you are going to post, however, you should at least commentate or proffer your opinion on the things that you post, otherwise it comes off as unabashed advertising, and it doesn't create any conversation, but serves to clutter up the already busy content feed upon signing in. Create a group for this, and feel free to tell me to fuck off if I say anything else.
