The Daily Blog Open Mic – 28th February 2024


Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

All in all, TDB gives punters a very, very, very wide space to comment in but we won’t bother with out right lies or gleeful malice. We leave that to the Herald comment section.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist abuse, homophobic abuse, racist abuse, anti-muslim abuse, transphobic abuse, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. Newshub to close.
    Shocked (maybe) but not surprised!
    Corporate neoliberal Amerika, Corporate neoliberal/3rd Way Nu Zulln.
    Same shit, different stink.

    There was a way to prevent this (primarily by cutting back on the ticket clippers rather than staff at the coalface. As is the case elsewhere. Just a shame Willie Jackson fell for the so-called stakeholders and consultants and neglected the biggest stakeholder of all – the public)

    What say you now Melissa Lee?
    And what of Prime?

  2. You really need a vital open mic section like the ‘wrong’ Kiwiblog and the neoliberal ‘The Standard’ (or ‘End of Labour’). Not your fault I think. I can’t come up with anything.

    Maybe some of the TS people coming over here, disillusioned with the aggressive ‘guidance’ and censoring off the platform by mad lad Lprent and apprentices. Neither solidarity nor free speech are big over at dying Labour’s platform. It’s either you or the Greens who blow away this tired old web.

  3. The Greens are a little over-pious at this stage — as you point out — to do a free speech page for Left truth and reality. Get along now!
