Only Markus Auerelius and Rich Gitmo Glitter blocked honest questions seeking honest answers. Will new Mngt and the Reg authorities finally get off their duffs! they will if you all stand up and contact the Authorities and say enough!

I sent the following query in.See Stockhouse's reply!!

Post Deletions   hursday, June 23, 2011 12:59 PM

Why was my posting deleted on the GNZ board on Stockhouse today? What specific terms of service were violated? It was posted under my nick, liljoe. This board has a long history of deleting posts and banning posters if the content contradicts what may be perceived as "pumping" the Company.

This doesn't make it an open forum for discussion and disseminating information.Agoracom favored certain Companies and featured them.Stockhouse appears to do the same.Misinformation is kept on while correcting the misinformation is deleted and the poster banned.A group of people who repeatedly post misinformation always receive high ratings of 5,which gives the perception that the post is accurate and reputable,especially since any counter opinion is deleted.This could steer naive investors into buying a Stock based on misinformation which,again,is what Agoracom did.And it was investigated and proven so.

You deleted very quickly the following posting regarding pollution caused by Oil Shale on an Oil Shale Forum in response to 2 other posts,one involving Estonia.This is a scientific,public interest article and is informative and not offensive.Why do you so actively promote such practices on the GNZ board?  The Oil Shale Article information which was deleted:

Environmental considerations:  Main article: Environmental impact of oil shale industry.

Oil shale mining involves a number of environmental impacts, more pronounced in surface mining than in underground mining. They include acid drainage induced by the sudden rapid exposure and subsequent oxidation of formerly buried materials, the introduction of metals into surface-water and groundwater, increased erosion, sulfur-gas emissions, and air pollution caused by the production of particulates during processing, transport, and support activities. In 2002, about 97% of air pollution, 86% of total waste and 23% of water pollution in Estonia came from the power industry, which uses oil shale as the main resource for its power production.

Oil shale extraction can damage the biological and recreational value of land and the ecosystem in the mining area. Combustion and thermal processing generate waste material. In addition, the atmospheric emissions from oil shale processing and combustion include carbon dioxide, agreenhouse gas. Environmentalists oppose production and usage of oil shale, as it creates even more greenhouse gases than conventional fossil fuels. Section 526 of the Energy Independence And Security Act prohibits United States government agencies from buying oil produced by processes that produce more greenhouse gas emissions than would traditional petroleum.Experimental in situ conversion processes and carbon capture and storage technologies may reduce some of these concerns in the future, but at the same time they may cause other problems, including groundwater pollution.

Some commentators have expressed concerns over the oil shale industry's use of water. In 2002, the oil shale-fired power industry used 91% of the water consumed in Estonia.Depending on technology, above-ground retorting uses between one and five barrels of water per barrel of produced shale-oil.A 2007 programmatic environmental impact statement issued by the US Bureau of Land Managementstated that surface mining and retort operations produce two to ten US gallons (1.5–8 imperial gallons or 8–38 L) of wastewater per tonne of processed oil shale. In situ processing, according to one estimate, uses about one-tenth as much water.

Water concerns become particularly sensitive issues in arid regions, such as the western US and Israel's Negev Desert, where plans exist to expand the oil shale industry despite a water shortage.
Environmental activists, including members of Greenpeace, have organized strong protests against the oil shale industry. In one result,Queensland Energy Resources put the proposed Stuart Oil Shale Project in Australia on hold in 2004.

Which violations of Stockhouse posting policy does this post violate?
Thank you.
