DP is growing again..

Im sure the Syrian war has something to do with it. The DP always lights up when there is major movement happening. Whether its war, terrorism, a bad bill, a scandal...

I have noticed a significant uptick in traffic.

DP has a lot of Lurkers!

RE: "DP has a lot of Lurkers!"

"I have noticed a significant uptick in traffic." "I'm sure the Syrian war has something to do with it."

These are interesting statements, all told.
The word "Upticks", in and of itself, is an expression used by the British to denote 'voting' rituals. back in the days of the Realm, votes would be counted by hand, and favorable votes would be cast by making what the U.S. people consider to be 'check-marks'. a short mark down, attached to a long mark up[, at opposing 45-degree angles (both shaping upwards) would be considered to be an 'affirmative' (much like the old Roman custom of a 'thumbs-up'). the British shortened that to 'uptick', or, more recently, 'ticks', or 'ticking'. When the vote counters were caught turning the ballots around 180 degrees, the phrase 'turn that frown upside-down' was coined, along with 'turning upside-down' (in describing the electorates' votes versus the 'official' count of those). it got so bad that the 'rebels' actually started calling the bed-bugs in the New World 'ticks' (which then seemed to migrate in to several indigenous forms of life here, including deer).

Ah, 'LURKERS', and the so-called 'SYRIAN WAR'...!
How's that WAR going for you so far?

purged whom?

I don't get your point?
are you suggesting the ones who were banned
were worthless or meaningless here?

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Now That "We" Have Purged

...reeks of an arrogance that is not "Paulestinian".
I haven't "purged" anyone, and don't believe you've done any "purging" either...
....Must be coming from France....this "we" stuff.
Things certainly are looking up though, thank goodness.

deacon's picture

very true

I never asked for public purgings here,not my style
But I do believe that comment was directed towards people
of my persuasion. You know ones who know the reports about the shootings at columbine were false (not reported correctly)
the shooting at the Sikh temple (again,not reported correctly)
the aurora theater shooting (see above)
Sandy hook was a total farce
every war we had so far
But in all my time here,i have asked for no one to be banned,kicked or otherwise,with that being said.i only know of 3 people here,so far,who I do not trust,probably never will.But I am a firm believer in this,one can learn from known liars,if one knows how to read them
It is kind of hard to trust someone knowing what they post is lies,falsehoods
or just name calling nonsense,and or offense behavior
And I do not believe in getting rid of another for simply not liking what they type or their personal beliefs(one cannot learn from any one sided conversation)

Wow! 245,000 views today.

That seems a lot higher than normal. DP readership is going up!

This is because Tom and I...

This is because Tomasz and I have been heavily spamming it on Twitter as the best think tank on the net, Lol.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Thanks Danton

I am serious, we really have been doing this. Now if I could get whoever is running the DP Twitter account to follow me back I could turn them on to some great stuff. We DO NOT have the same folks in our circle, I looked. I am sure they are following Tomasz but I am still being vetted it looks like, lol.

Never Doubted the Veracity

..of your statement, and it actually gives me...and others here, a positive vibe.
Things really are looking up for DPers and Dr Paul.
People ARE waking up!
And THAT is a great feeling!
Best to ya!

I'm probably technically a "lurker"

I read from several different devices and browsers, and I only log in if I'm going to write something, so I'm probably one of the "lurkers". I'm a rabid comment poster on other websites because I feel a moral obligation to fight stupidity, but on this site I generally agree with people so see no need to post. :-)

Masochist!

How can you stand posting on those other boards? Everybody is so rude on 99% of the internet.

Currently consuming: Morehouse's "Better off free", FDR; Wii U; NEP Football

What?

This is the rudest board I have ever been on! But for good reasons. Michael censors less than any other site I have been on and it is all about tough love. If they didn't love us they wouldn't push so hard and be so rude. It's all good!

I lurked at DP

until the end of the 08 election. Seems the political sites always slow after a presidential election.

Lots of DP pages come up in ordinary google searches.

I've been pleasantly surprised several times to see a daily paul thread listed as a source for information on a particular topic...

I linked an article

I linked an article that was threaded here on Freedomworks.org , maybe that had something to do with an increase today..

When I post breaking information found on DP elsewhere,

I always try to include or credit DP.

freedomsphoenix.com frequently has original DP posts on it's front page.
(though none at this moment0

I think DP has become a go to alternative news discussion site.

It is my hope, sites like the

Hard to say if it's lurking or members not logging on.

Today, there are nearly 3 times the number of views as there are total DP members. Members could also be logging on and off several times per day. It's hard to say for sure. May be one of the DP gurus knows more.
