Barack Obama's initials are not a smell.

The unfettered censorship in this AskMe
is so obscene that I feel it warrants this MeTa.
jessamyn was first in with a non-answer that basically legitimizes what would otherwise be standard chat filter fare...
She writes, "...he smelled like nothing, nothing at all." Seriously, jessamyn? That's your answer? That's the summation of your experience?
Please. You're being a hypocrite - you want your own chatty comment to stand, because it's oh so apt with it's cute little linky lead-ins, yet you want to zap all the others. And then in mefi mail you explain that the "he smells like B.O." comment is legit because "B.O." are his initials?
For the record, I said that Obama smells like Kevlar... because you know, he's bulletproof... Oh, but that's far, far, more deletion worthy than saying, "he smelled like nothing, nothing at all," or saying he smells like "B.O."
Close the thread if it's chat-filter, or delete abusive non-answers, but don't cherry pick the comments you like while censoring those you don't.
