The Daily Paul And The " Vortex Of Doom "

Ok, this is a shameful whine, and hopefully a conversation starter as well.
I posted " American Conspiracy : 1170- present ........ " earlier today, that in itself isn't unusual, but the length of my blog was. Why? Because it took several hours to assemble the information, for with every fact I posted links to substantiate my facts, and I covered the entirety of the issue all in one post.
And therein lay the problem, all of four people here got to see my blog before the vortex known as " the active forum topics..black hole " injested my blog into that netherworld of DailyPauldom...... The other pages............. You know those other blogs that you could get too, but never seem to get too.........
Which is sad, considering that of the four ( thank you for taking the time ) who read my blog, two up voted it, not a bad average. Additionally, considering the fact that the heart of my blog shows who is truly behind the scenes even in today's theater politic, it's highly relevant, one could say " necessary reading ".
Realizing the length of my post was it achilles heel, can not negate that in it's length it provides its proofs which are paramount to such endeavors. It's a conundrum, should I post concise, but unsubstantiated information hoping others will do the searching and fact checking......this will not do, rather likely an unproven blog of this type receives riddicule, sophistry, and veiled bigotry under threats.....and in so doing the message is lost. But as shown, a full revelation is too lengthy, not for our, the members eye or attention span; but for the system in place that vacuums up both good and bad at a rate only surpassed by Scotty getting warp eleven against all odds, captain.
In other words, if the world hinged upon the data being known by many, the present system on this board would assure the demise of it by holding it before but a few.
Of course I split hairs, but why shouldn't I, let's see by raising of hands, how many online now have actually clicked through the totality of today's posts as viewable on the blue banner? One, ........two........thr...............................
That's what I thought.

So please dear comptrollers, can you please auto recycle the " today's posts " back through the " active topic forum vortex " at least for the 24 hours they are NEW, who knows what new things, or very old things we might learn then?!! Huzzaha !

God Bless

Good info, I too noted the drop off after the convention, even I went silent for awhile ( processing the grief ).
Still though I came by 3-4 times a week to read.

*rubs eyes* oif. That first paragraph...

So you've a long, link-laden, older post you wish were more visible.

(Aside from access via your account or those who've friended you)

Posts in chronological order are in the Chrono (and it is one of the top viewed pages here, people do pay attention):
http://www.dailypaul.com/chrono

Long posts are accessible in Wordy:
http://www.dailypaul.com/most-wordy

And the most heavily linked posts are in Most Linked:
http://www.dailypaul.com/most-links

But instead of letting people who want to seek posts out through there, or otherwise making it stand out, you'd rather dump day old posts into the AFT, crowding out new & recently commented ones? A random filter might as well be added to it, go with the shot gun approach. Will think about.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

That's all a fella can ask

Thanks for your response, timely, and the information as well, got a laugh out of the most wordy, that fits.
Incidently, and off topic, your a wizard, and I don't envy you your mediators job; which you do with aplomb, hats off to you.
Don't expect I'll always agree with how you go about it, liberty doesn't have room for yes men.
