I almost lost it ...

Dear Michael,
I know how important the Daily Paul is in my day to day life,it is one of a very few places that I can see that my idea of personal liberty is not the freak show everyone claims it is.

For some unknown reason I was not able to log in for 48 hours something with my ISP ... and I really started to freak I had to go over to my in-laws to log in this morning just to keep my mind right, and to combat the massive amount of misinformation and disinformation that is hurled at me on a constant basis.
Seeing past the MSM and then having the last outlet that allows me the interaction with like mined folks was indeed a sobering thought.

Mr. Nystrom you and I have not always seen eye to eye but that is the beauty of the republic we can agree to disagree and furthermore THNAK YOU for keeping this experiment alive and helping people like myself maintain our composer

yours in liberty
A. Sovereign

I lost it when I was a freshman.

No offense, but if the disappearance of a website is all it takes to make you almost lose it, you may want to look at your life and figure out more to it.

Yes, its nice to have the dailypaul, but like anything else, and while I hope it will be here for a long time, it wont last forever.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

yeah really

When the site goes offline, I just assume it's for maintenance. Besides, don't a lot of DPers use RPF when the DP is down, anyway?

Loved the way you spelled THNAK YOU

:D Made me feel at home.

DP is the fastest way to hear the news that matters.

And the scoop behind the news.

not always

Over the past few weeks I've been noticing stories hitting reddit a day or two before they hit the DP.

Of course I could always just post those stories as they're spotted, but I always seem to put it off. I'll stop procrastinating when it comes to posting stories...starting tomorrow.

I see things on twitter before anyplace else.

Alongside the "massive amount[s] of misinformation and disinformation that is hurled . . . on a constant basis".

Checking Drudge is like looking for the key your dog swallowed two days ago.

it's been happening to me too

over the last few days.

Are you suggesting?

Some possible ISP hanky panky going on?

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.

i don't know

what i do know is the DP wouldn't open in my browser.
every other site i tried would.

I also had an issue fairly recently

It was a response I was making to Atruepatriot, I had written a large response and then got an error message (something about the database being updated, IIRC?), and the browser's Back button wouldn't get me back to the text I had composed. Annoying.

This site is read world-wide. I'm not sure it still makes sense to perform software updates by taking a site down. (And yes, it's probably a lot more expensive to set it up that way -- but it seems that it has bitten more than just myself.)

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

God Bless Mr. Nystrom and his creation, the Daily Paul!

This blessing includes, but is not limited too, all the folks that come here and share our search for truth, freedom and a sanctuary from the insanity so many misguided people are trying to make our reality.

Good thread! I often contemplate how dull my life would be without this forum with which to seek shelter from the storm.

God bless Mr. Nystrom, indeed...

and all the friends here at DP I've yet to meet.

This place was my sanctuary during a very difficult time. May God bless all who helped me through the personal anguish of this past year with personal stories, real breaking news, jokes and humorous sarcasm, insights and information, and even a bit of bickering added to the mix. I love you guys!

I too am very glad for the Daily Paul Website...

It is definitely a positive in my life even though at times I do not agree but later I understand the reasoning behind the other person point of view. It sure beats listening to the slanted News Media.

It's happened to me too

It usually happens right in the middle of a good conversation and I owe a reply to a question, lol
