Pope John Paul nears sainthood, to be beatified

POPE-JOHNPAUL/BEATIFICATIONSee the attached documents and please explain why my comments are inappropriate. I have informed the truth as it could be.

L.P.F.

You’re asking why your comments on this story didn’t make it online? We get that from a number of readers, and usually there is a very good reason.

Let’s see. You wrote a rambling 748-word comment, all in one long paragraph, in response to a 640-word story?

Then you sent the same comment again and again and again, and now you wonder why we consider you a spammer? Really? GBU Editor

People like you would have killed James Joyce.

Ever read anything by Joyce?

@ARJTurgot2
Joyce probably didn’t inundate his publisher with the same manuscript of Finnegan’s Wake submitted
“again and again and again”

If he had done that, his work wouldn’t have been published either!
