White Smoke Rises As New Pope Is Elected, Dow Jones Hits New All Time High

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Moments ago white smoke emerged from the Sistine Chapel which means that the Cardinals of the Catholic church have elected a new pope on the second day of Conclave. The identity will be revealed shortly. Stocks take this as a bullish signal and hit intraday highs, and for the DJIA, new all time record highs. All is well in the world.

I think they updated the page, whenever they do that comments disappear. I've seen it happen before totally innocuously. 

Just to make sure - fuck the pope.

I had several comments in this thread disappear as well.

WTF Tyler?

 

PS:  On further re-reading of this thread after an absence of several hours, MANY comments have been deleted.  Just for the record, this is not the first time lately that I have noticed this kind of thing either.  I think Tyler owes us an explanation --- is this site now being "moderated", or not?  It would be nice to know up front.

It's not just ZH.  A ton of financial or economics related sites have been acting funky this afternoon.

I do believe that ZH has girded and dispersed its servers all over the world, including several located in deep underground vaults beneath the Swiss Alps.

Well, it is curious on just how selective the "bug" has been in this thread, selectively deleting all of the more admittedly offensive comments.

It has to have been Tyler(s) doing it.  That is of course his/their right, but it would be nice if he/they were forthright about it and admitted that 'moderating'/censoring the comments here is now official policy.

Weird. I post a comment which begins with "Bar-B-Q Pope" and in the New Comments sidebar the only part that displays is "Bar-B-Q".

You're right, TFS --- it seems that almost every comment directly referring to the Pope in this thread have been deleted.

I guess this site has now been co-opted by pro-establishment forces as well.

What next, "Tyler" --- censoring all discussion of gold and bitcoin too?  With all forms of anti-government sentiment to follow down the memory hole?

But look at page two. This comment is still there: "Lock up your choirboys, there'll be celebrating in the Vatican tonight."

It's funny as hell, but a bit more offensive than most of the ones that disappeared.

I don't enjoy this moderation shit either. It's like on the Turd's blog ... Tyranny is everywhere.

Saint Malarky prophecy states this is the last pope - it is either the end of the world or just another Mayan like prophecy.

No - the next-to-last.  In fact, there are multiple prophecies that point to the next Pope being the last and presiding over armageddon.  Watch out for anyone with JER in their name....

Well, here is my first religious Irish Poem:

 

Pax Caramella

The Catholics have a new Pope

Who will prosecute bad priests, we hope.

And put them in jail

Without any bail,

And make them bend over for soap!
