Chevy Tahoe Censorship

so we've all been having loads of fun at CHEVY TAHOE's expense lately and they've been proudly exclaiming that it's all part of their plan and the cost of doing blogvertising yadayadayada.. but we've suspected all along that there's some censorship happening too.

no way to really prove it, but if you post an ad and it doesn't work then you post it again, right? i've mastered their little program quite well and i made one i call "august" and it's been yanked three times. i'll post it here again soon, but just in case it gets yanked again, i'll let you imagine it. is it the foul language that chevy opposes? is it the accusations of greed and global destruction they don't like? it hasn't been a problem with others' ads. so let's see what's so bad about "august"
