Default Banned from Automotive news

Anyone out there ever been banned form commenting on stories by Automotive News?

There was an article on Jesse Jackson wanting to boycott BMW stores because there are not enough black dealer principals. I decided to put in a meme that I thought was funny, I guess it got someone's panties in a bunch at Auto Snooze. I cannot put it up here but it is a picture of REVEREND (hahahah) Al Sharpton with a caption of "I didn't hear the question but the answer is all white people are racist". Still think its funny.

Yes it is funny.... I quit reading Auto Snooze when they sold me out for advertising revenue. Were you "banned" or was just this comment omitted? You might think that Crain is part of the ANTIFA gang.
