I haven't thought of this in a long time. I thought for sure it was what I quoted word for word. Did they change the title? Wouldn't be the first time. I'll double check. Thanks for the cap, good buddy.
I think you might be thinking of another rag entirely. Possibly Slate? Could have sworn they jumped in on that pedo-apologism craze a bit.

You're not going crazy. Salon deleted Nickerson's articles. He wrote more than one about pedophilia apologism for them.

This forum (I think it's a beauty/gossip forum for black women, lol) shat all over the Salon pedo garbage when it was new:

Never read rag, but in the post you quoted, (I edited it like half a minute ago) I post the orginal url. It was salon that posted it with the title i quoted, but I mixed up the words 'Vile' witht he word 'Evil' my bad on that.

The mental image of a fashionista black woman sitting down to watch some anime (as evidenced by the profile pic) will never cease to be amusing.

Edit: I was right on the wording. Though, I misremembered 'vile' as evil' my bad. I'll fix the original post. Found the url for those interested. With a screencap of the current 404

I am very proud to say that even after several years this horrendous shit still makes me want to punch a wall. Thank you kindly, good sir.

Scary part is that he says that the majority of the reception he got was positive. That should tell you a lot about the kind of people that read Salon.

Liberal media memoryholing their own bullshit is wild. This validates my suspicion that an article critical of prostitution from a woman who was a call girl for several months was memoryholed because it doesn't fit the new liberal narrative that prostitution is all sunshine and rainbows. I'm 99 percent sure that the article was originally run in Salon.

Rolling Stone has also tried to memoryhole its hilarious article about Lana Wachowski.

Even if a publication's opinion about something has changed or if they realized they made a mistake, they fucking own it by leaving the articles up. Fucking cowards.

But what will happen to foreignpolicy.com then? Oh who cares, it went subscription-based years ago.

They could post a retraction at the end, saying that, upon further consideration, renting your pussy is like AirBnB or something.

It's as good a time as any to post all of my "favorite" Salon headlines, I suppose. No sense letting a grave go un-pissed on, and it'll give anyone who isn't up to speed on the writing quality featured on Salon a better idea as to why they're about to be auctioned off for pennies. ... Assuming anyone bothers to place a bid.

Golly gee wiz why wouldn't people want to pay top dollar for this paragon of journalistic integrity?

Many years ago, early 2000's about, when criticizing neocons was a totally legitimate pursuit, Salon published a few decent works of journalism. Before online publishing was subsumed by clickbate, it seemed like it could escape the corporate stranglehold on media and information. We know now it all turned out shitty, but stuff like this would never in a million years have appeared on cnn-

I always got Salon and Slate confused, but then again, both are pretty shit so it isn't surprising.
If I had the cash I'd buy it and turn it into a right wing outlet just to watch people lose their mind.

That is one of my greatest fears with the European article 13 thing. If a site like Salon fucks up and memoryholes an article they have the law on their side to make sure it will be gone and forgotten. People can't post the text on the web after it is taken down and it might not be legal to archive it, screenshots is another form of reproducing their content so nope, that won't be allowed either.
Ideally it will be: "Remember when Salon had that pedophile write articles about how it's not bad to be a pedophile and people should welcome them?" no, that's just an alt-right rumor, there's no proof of them doing that.
