NOTE: Nothing has been added or subtracted from their notices to us. Notice also there is no convenient way to respond since it comes from a "no-reply" box@google.com.


The first article the SLDN published was shortly after 9 pm on Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Its headline read (1) "Charity Fundraiser: Nine competing for 'Mr. Batavia' in this year’s virtual event." It highlighted nine contestants by their name, photo, and the charity for which they were raising money. Each contestant was an enrolled and very involved student at the Batavia High School.

The second article the SLDN published was shortly before 9 pm on Friday, May 14, 2021. Its headline read (2) "Charity Event: Faraz Idrees wins 2021 Mr. Batavia." It announced the winner of the contest/show and highlighted the three finalists by name, photo, and the charity for which they were raising money. It also announced the link at which the contest/show could be viewed and also announced how futher donations could be made utilizing the gofund.me link.

The first place winner of Mr. Batavia was Faraz Idrees who competed on behalf of Anna's Wish who will receive 50% of the donations. Sean Pies, who finished second in the Mr. Batavia contest, competed on behalf of The Dave McCarthy and Michael Napoleone foundations which will receive 25% of the donations fo this year's contest. As of Fridday morning, the fund reached $2,510 of its $3,500 goal. The GoFundMe link is https://gofund.me/d1ba42bb.

The Blogger flag caused the "problem" to go to committee for a final decision of whether the article/headline was appropriate or not. Readers are encouraged to look over all of the information provided and determine for themselves what might have been the trigger point. If you think Blogger's flags have been set to be too discriminatory, please email us at SLDN@mail.com or write to Blogger directly. The article was released Saturday morning and now appears on the SLDN site.
