Can you please unblock my user name Xdreamartist

It was a pretty lame thing to block me for mentioning someone and something i didn't know was unmentionable. Could you please send me a list of unmentionable things so this doesn't happen again. Libertarians are supposed to talk things out. I also would like to know why you banned me. It really seems like such a cowardly thing for Michael to do... I want an explanation.

Thank you,

When did common sense become a super power?

On account of that computer issue

last week or so, I was under the impression that it would be wise for us to get new passwords at this time. I clicked on the "request new password" link, but it just switched me to the "log in" screen (after momentarily flashing on some message that came & went too fast for me to read). So, two questions.
1) Should we be using new passwords?
2) If we should, how do we get a new password?

Thnx.

Edit: I received an e-mail from the DP giving me a one-time use "log-in address" that was supposed to get me logged in (if I clicked on the link) *and* direct me to where I could change my password. But when I tried to use it, I got this message: "You have tried to use a one-time login link which has either been used or is no longer valid. Please request a new one using the form below."

I couldn't find a form below. There may have been something there, something that you or other techies might even find glaring. I didn't see... anything at all.

I'm going to take a "do nothing" approach here until advised differently.

Yes, thanks.

A favor if possible

I have been so moved by all the respectful comments on The Michael Ruppert Tribute Post notwithstanding those few that question the suicide, as that is somewhat understandable as long as it didn't devolve. There is a recent comment at the top that I feel is disrespectful to the intent of the post and should be taken elsewhere for discussion. Would it be possible to remove it? I ask because I sent the post to Michael's friend so he could see the many people that Michael had an impact on. Thank you!

Could you maybe clone the vote widget to the bottom of posts?

I don't vote on a post until I've read down to the bottom and half the time I forget. It would be nice to have the reminder at the bottom. Maybe even the social media buttons too?

...resubscribe with monthly donation, but when I try to log in to the Paypal screen it gives me some message saying I can't due to the subscription being cancelled or finished or something like that. Any idea how to reset things there so it will let me? :)

Trying to remain object.

Please review the posts from this member as they pertain to this thread. I believe this is an unprovoked personal attack on me that has been dredged up from over two years ago. Others are being attacked also. I am still in shock by all of this. It seems to be right out of left field (sic). I know what I want to do, but will not without more input.

I suppose I'm undeserving of an answer...

to my question below.

Perhaps if I knew the reason the post was nixed, I could consider it when writing in the future.

I'm not one to complain or question the decisions of the folks..

who operate the site.

However, I was just curious why You won't kill the guy that makes the cell phones was removed from the Top Originals.

I'm fine with no answer (and I looked for a more anonymous avenue to ask this question), but however, I am painted curious.

Feel free to reply or not.

April fools

Can we move or designate somehow the April fools threads so they aren't in the feed anymore?

What percentage of us are on team Rand?

From what I can tell the forum isn't set up for normal users to be able to post a poll. It seams from the comments that most of the people here are ready to support him. The haters speak pretty loud but seam to be in the minority. I would love to see a poll where we could see what percentage of this community are on team Rand and how many think he has jumped ship. Would the moderators be able to post a poll to this effect?
Something like...
() I plan to support Rand as much as I did his father
() I plan to support him but wish he was more libertarian
() I plan to support him but only because he is the best option
() I plan to support him for other reasons that I will describe below
() I do not support him or his dad, I voted third party
() I do not plan on supporting him because he is a Neocon
() I do not plan on supporting him for other reason I will describe below

Thanks!

I'm using proXPN now. My HotspotShield stopped working with my antivirus.

Is there a way you can allow it?

Understand why you unpublished my post

But it wasn't meant to take on the rand haters. I actually agree with most of their objections towards him. I thought that was clear in my post. I am sorry though. I don't mean to be offensive. I am actually kinda embarrassed. Sorry again.

P.S.- I really do hope you read it and fully understood it before you took it down. Not because I think you are wrong, I just don't want you to think I was trying to be an ass. I can see how it might look that way to someone who didn't read the whole post.

Michael Nystrom's picture

I understand where you're coming from

And I believe you when you say that you're not trying to be an ass. But (or and) with a post like that, with a headline like this:

Attention Rand-haters. He doesn't need you. He doesn't need any of us.

most people don't bother to read the whole post before they go directly to the flaming. That is not your fault, but it is the way most people, including me, tend to use the site: Scanning, not reading, going with first impressions, etc.

To be honest, I didn't read the whole thing. I didn't get past the headline, or the first sentence,

For all those who like to kick and scream about Rand Paul isn't spewing the rhetoric that you normally hear from the Scott Horton Show, or Tom Woods Radio:

before I unpublished it. The reason I stopped there was because:

1) Collectivizing "Rand Haters."
2) Angry characterization of "spewing rhetoric" from Scott Horton or Tom Woods. What do those guys have to do with anything? This looks like it is just trying to start a brawl. A food fight.

So that is where I stopped and unpublished it. Please also realize, I have other work as well, some of it time sensitive. So I'll do a scan of the site before getting to my other work, and if I see something potentially problematic, I'll whack it and get back to it later when I have more time (or not), especially if someone complains. So I'm taking the time to read the rest now...

Next sentence.

Newsflash: He doesn't care about you, and he doesn't need you either. He doesn't need any of us. THE SHEEPLE ARE GOING TO ELECT HIM, NOT US!

And really, it just becomes difficult for me to go on.

I mean really, can we get beyond this idea of classifying people as "Sheeple?" It is just so juvenile.

Do you think you've never been a "sheeple?" You never ate at McDonald's or drank a Starbucks? You didn't watch Seinfeld or Friends?

This whole thing, as written, is just divisive. It will just start a food fight, and I'm tired of the food fights. So I stand by what I said when I unpublished it:

* * * * * * *

Take the hating on the haters someone else please. I don't need more divisiveness on top of the divisiveness.

This is not worthy of the Daily Paul.

* * * * * * *

Still, I understand the sentiment: Rand doesn't need us to win.

Anyway, I hope you understand where I'm coming from.

Séamusín's picture

I do, and it means alot to me that you responded.

I was intentionally stirring the pot. It wasn't to start a fight, it was to get people to think about the whole thing from a different perspective.

The idea of the post was to try and separate Rand Paul from the liberty movement and his fathers legacy, and instead look at him the way we look at any other politician. Ron Widen, Mike Lee, Alan Grayson, and Thomas Massie. Is he good for liberty? Maybe not from our perspective, maybe yes. But what we think doesn't matter. Because there are 300 million other Americans who think differently than we do.

Should we be angry at them for picking him over a worse alternative? Should we be angry at him for being their man?

That was what I was getting at. Thanks again for the reply. Like I said it means alot to me.

P.S.- I picked Tom woods and Scott Horton because they are my absolute favorite radio/podcast personalities.

Jon Request

Hi Jon,

Is there any way of adding 300 per page/tab of comments/posts to our profile page, please?

And to the mod box, please? (or 500?)

It's more enjoyable to read without having to keep waiting for next page to load, and less time consuming to get thru posts.

Thanks. :)

About Liberty Candidates

It should not be that anyone's name can be put up here. There should be solid, verifiable qualifications/ characteristics of liberty candidates, even if they don't have a track record. Before they are promoted as a liberty candidate, there should be some verification that they are indeed a liberty candidate. How this can happen is another story. Not having a track record is ok, no history of raising taxes, of violating civil liberties.

Donors should be aware that there are limits on contributions, not just 2,500 per candidate/ but ceiling limits. This should be known before a decision is made as to who to donate to, it may be limited to 10 candidates. Potential donors should be reminded of this on a regular basis.

For some reason, we're expected to know every law that exists in America & in our state so we don't break it. We're supposed to know this when we're 18. There's no litmus test for them, as in the 10 commandments or rhyme or reason. C.U.R.E.

idea

I'm having a purple day (seems my posts should be in purple) and I remember there was some feature that one could make the font purple, but I don't know how to do that trick.

So I thought, what color are my days? Dumb thought maybe, but I thought again, "Why not mood paper".. faded smiley face icon stationary, or puppies, or cannabis leaf, or ron paul blimp.. ??

Just an idea.. but I thought, if a user had the option of a stationary that could be cool.

Purple Days

Hi Granger,

I don't know what color day purple is.....is that like 'blue'? Or 'sunny' like yellow? I think it's pretty.

Jon says it's sarcastic: ;)

http://www.dailypaul.com/286022/sarcasm-poes-law-and-b-s

Hope your days are beautiful and bright!

:)

[Mood/stationary may be hard to read. Your purple background is beauutiifull! ;)]
