Censorship in action — Erin Pizzey’s web pages at Fathers for Life are the target, and have been for years.

To explain all of the ins and outs of the trend line will muddle the issue, therefore I will generalize.

The trend line shows a gradual decline in traffic to Erin Pizzey’s web pages. That decline does not represent a decline in the public’s interest. It does show the cumulative effect of many things that were done over the years that made it more difficult to find Erin Pizzey’s web pages at F4L.

To sum it all up: The Trend Line shows Censorship in Action!

The start of the trend line is October 2006 because that was when I began using Google Analytics to monitor traffic trends for the website of Fathers for Life.

  1. I posted the following comment to Erin Pizzey’s time line on Facebook:

    Erin, see: http://blog.fathersforlife.org/2013/04/18/censorship-in-action-erin-pizzzey-is-the-target/

    If you click on the link, you will see a large spike — for the week Jan 27 – Feb 2, 2013 — in the trend line for the weekly number of page views to your web pages at Fathers for Life.

    That spike is due to there having been 1,1 46 page views on Jan 30, 2013 of your article at http://fathersforlife.org/pizzey/failfamt.htm The large increase in traffic was due to a discussion at reddit that day that referred to your article, “WHO’S FAILING THE FAMILY?” (published in The Scotsman 30.3.99.)

    Although I spent quite a few hours looking for something at reddit on Jan 30 that linked to that article, I have not been able to find anything that even mentioned it.

    Does anyone here have an answer to that puzzle?

    By the way, your discussion at reddit on April 15 did not result in the slightest increase in the number of page views of your pages at Fathers for Life, probably on account of no one having posted at reddit a link to any of your articles at F4L. That is to a large part due to your pages at F4L being censored by O2 and by Symantec (makers and vendors of Norton Antivirus, and of filtering and blocking software used by O2).

    It seems that whenever I try to get MRAs interested in the issue of ongoing censorship of men’s rights websites, their eyes glaze over. Maybe this will get their attention: http://blog.fathersforlife.org/2013/04/18/censorship-in-action-erin-pizzzey-is-the-target/

    I responded:

    Walter H. Schneider @Rk Hendrick, you get no argument from me on that. It is the big elephant in the living room that everyone does his best to ignore while he complains about all sort of things, including the fact that the rankings of MR websites are tanking.

    Still, let me repeat my observation. Every time I mention censorship to MRAs, what drives it and how it affects them, their eyes glaze over. So, what is at work? How can one cut through the apathy?

    Even some of the popular voices of “the movement”, voices that are much loved, never respond when censorship is being put on the table for discussion…dead silence, all around. Sorry for bringing it up, but it needs to be mentioned, and I make no apologies for that.

    Mind you, there have now been 20 visits to the blog entry since I first posted and announced it… and not a single comment. Yours is the very first response on the issue since I announced it 2.5 hours ago on Facebook, out of theoretically more that 6,500 Facebook clients who potentially saw it.

    It’s a harsh reality that the issue has already once more sunk into oblivion and obscurity, but censorship is still at work and tightens more and more, while it is blissfully being ignored, except for those who make their living doing it.
