A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    We are not censoring - in fact, we are even bringing the original submission to your attention so that you can read it.

    However, the purpose of the story as published is to give the facts and details of the news. The place for comments, including political views or inflammatory remarks, is in the comments. While we do permit a small amount of leeway in this regard, as a matter of policy (and it is our policy, not the whim of a single editor) we try to separate the facts from opinions and publish the former, unless the formatting of the submission makes it very clear that they are the submitter's personal views. In this case, there was no clear formatting in the submission and therefor some irrelevant text was edited out of the published story, and new information which was not available at the time of the submission was added. Takyon was quite correct in bringing this fact to your attention so that you can read the original sub if you so wish to do.

    I am not interested in who people are or where they live. My interest starts and stops at our servers.
