Stop viewing Negative articles!

Negative articles are being written JUST TO DRIVE TRAFFIC online!


If you see a 'negative headline', no matter how juicy or blatently wrong it is, PLEASE restrain yourself and DO NOT click on it to read it all, or to inject a defensive comment.


I'm now seeing blatently BS advertisements with Ron on them with some kind of slur trying to get us to see what kind of mud they are slinging!


Thank you,

For today, sure. It's the Iowa Caucus.

I'm picturing a sitcom scene with some acid-eating hippie wearing tie dye that hasn't showered in over a week....

For today, sure. It's the Iowa Caucus. As another thread pointed out we got newcomers coming here today and we need to keep our house clean. Also, it looks like we got some mods deleting threads with negative titles and content, so it shouldn't be much of a problem. The DP police are out in force for those who won't police themselves.

The ad revenue claim is interesting. I'll look more into it and I will take it into serious consideration. I'm curious if they still get revenue even if my ad blocking software doesn't allow me to see it. I'm not going to live in a bubble though, and as a general practice I like to be aware of threats as they emerge, but for today, you got a deal! GOOD LUCK IOWA! GO RON PAUL!

Coincidence! LOL


Because of the submission from 'boots-on-the-ground' regarding negative posts coincided timewise with my post above, I assure you I did not intend to imply that I was speaking about the 'negative submissions' on Daily Paul - I was referring to articles across the WWW written to draw RP supporters to their sites period.

I have no problem with posting anything on DP - my contention is that people can get the information without going to the website it's posted at (and depriving them from that 'pageview' that ads reward site owners with - benefitting our enemies) if the poster includes all the information in the repost.

Many people reading it here beats everyone having to go there resulting in money in their pockets.

As for the idea that new people reading 'old rehashes' here is that they also get to read all of us REFUTING the BS in the comments section (which, with all of us chiming in with what we know equals our own 'MiniWiki' about RP).

I say POST EVERYTHING, good and bad, and let the People reading it decide!

Rights are like muscles; you must exercise them to keep them fit, or they will atrophy and die.

Here's a good example

I understand your reasoning for counter-comments, but check out this AD:


Should we click on it to see what 'secret' Ron doesn't want us to know?

I think not.

You are RIGHT...please stop clicking on the crap

Articles rise in Google search results based on the amount of activity associated with them.

The more you click on a negative story, the more Google thinks that story is relevant.

Visit and comment on POSITIVE and NEUTRAL Ron Paul stories.

If you want to inhabit the comments sections, do it on Mitt Romney articles.

I do SEO for a living...trust me, this works. Bump the positives and IGNORE THE NEGATIVES.

i respectfully disagree

I think the comments section gives the reader of the article a general idea of the opinions of the majority.

an undecided voter that googles mitt romney, and reads a politically biased article, then reads the comments that perpetuate what the media wants them to believe. Ron Paul supporters need to defend him from that negativity through all outlets.

Reading a pro RP article, and seeing all the pro RP support just gives us the illusion of an overwhelming majority. We need to create that same feeling in every candidates comments section, as these comments are the only voice for the average American person
