You deleted my comment.

It wasn't a rant. There were no curse words. No names called. What are you trying to hide from others?

I unpublished it, yes

Because you're trying to create wholly pointless drama by crying afoul that you can't discuss, with the ease of your fully functioning limbs from the comfort of your chair, the patently absurd notion that the victims of the Boston marathon bombing were "crisis actors". They have hospital entries, friends, families, and many, many, many more ways to independently verify that they exist, were hurt, there, then, in awfully irreversible ways.

It isn't even logically consistent to think malicious forces would want to spare the innocent.

You want to advertise that? Don't do it here.

So what?

If someone is posting crap you don't agree with, either don't watch or down vote. Why are people advocating censorship? Is it a legal thing, or people who disagree with the 1st amendment?

"Acting" video

Michael was deleting all threads that make the absurd and embarrassing claim that the Boston Massacre was staged by actors. Here's one that's alive:

I was unaware of that button

I was having to go to "Most" and then another link.
Now on the right side of my screen I see the changes you guys made AND I LIKE THEM ALOT. Thanks!

subforum idea

What if we had a subforum set up for collaborative article writing? Maybe a way two or more members could get together and work on a common article that would later be submitted to an editorial board for publishing. Ideally what would happen is that an idea for an article could be proposed, interested members could then sign on to the project. If enough people with the right skills got together you could have writers, researchers, proof readers, graphic designers, computer literate types, et. al. co-operating to produce a more polished piece of original journalism. I think this could be a step towards not simply regurgitating the MSM talking points or opinon pieces .
I don't really know what kind of resources this would require to get going, or even how much the DP would get behind the idea. It might not be feasible to do it at all, but I thought I would put the idea out there.

Just wondering if this is a glitch

I noticed it the other day and didn't say anything but under

"Recent Comments" on the right side of my screen the list reads:

# I agree

1 min 1 sec ago

# Ouch!
by GopBlackList
1 min 2 sec ago

# There is no way to make
by Rhysw
4 sec ago

# ♫ THe FaRT SoNG ♫

2 min 54 sec ago

The point being it is not chronological and there also seems to be alot of time gaps in between the times. Is it something to do with my personal settings? It seems like the list used to be seconds apart and chronologic.

Also, I was going to reply to someone on Michael Nystrom's Bon Voyage/Birthday post and noticed that it was 403'd. Was there soemthing wrong with it?

...

well

if you look at the URL for each comment, the last # is the CID. Those are all in descending order, which means they did appear in that order. People might go back and correct parts of their comments, resulting in an updated timestamp. So that may be why the times appear off.

As for the 403'd bon voyage thread, the mod who wrote it chose to unpublish it, it looks like.

Thanks Jon!

Does the URL get created when a user does "Save" comment or when the user clicks "add New Comment?"

Not that it matters, but your reply made me think of that question.

Thanks for the infor on the 403'd Post.

hey Dearest Mod(s),

are these two anti-AnCaps the same person under two different avatars?

but seriously?
http://www.dailypaul.com/284412#comment-3065526

have I missed that much since I've been absent a bit here? since when did DP start having childish-level fights between supposed 'conservatives,' who sound more like NeoCon trolls, vs. AnCaps?

wowsa.

How do I not get thrown to

How do I not get thrown to /myfrontpage? I can't get it to look like the root used to with that popular posts list.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Omit/Target Keywords Option

Just a thought...

What if logged in users had a way to omit posts and/or comments that contained designated keywords?

So it might work like how Google excludes search results when you use the "-" subtract operator

So DP users could add a few unique key words they wanted to avoid in the customize my front page area, or even better, keywords we want to see more.

Thanks for all the work Joη!

"on error"?

"illegal choice" wasn't my error yesterday.

I saw something wrong. I didn't do it! It was imprecise, my error.

Illegal choice?

I am getting an illegal choice message. How do I fix it and why did I get this notice?
