E Tu Benton?

My forum post regarding my thoughts on Benton and his questionable actions was wrongfully unpublished. I was also given a, "warning," that the material contained within the post was possible, "slander?"

That is just bull. I was stating my opinion and also those up with a well written, sourced and already published article.

So what's the deal? I have never been out of line on this site/forum, nor will I ever be. I have been involved with Dr. Paul's message and campaign since early 2007. I am entitled to my opinions and I abhor censorship!

Auto search before post?

Many topics are getting repeatedly posted multiple times lately for the exact same video or topic. I don't know if it's a concentrated effort to saturate the site with specific topics by people that have an agenda or if there's just more interest in posting without searching or even reading or looking at existing topics.

It's gotten so bad, I've seen the exact same videos or topics listed three times at the the same time in recent topics. And I've seen this happen several times this week. Even when such topics are already on the homepage.

What would it take to conduct an automatic search after a topic is submitted and require a second confirmation to actually post? It seems simple enough.

Joη's picture

well there's currently the subject similarity searcher

& after seeing the humorous deluge of repeated posts I began a script to do this yesterday, so when I finish it, you'll see it.

There's also the "Also linked at" block that appears when youtube links are found in other posts.

Has anyone noticed that

when you reply to a comment, it goes straight to the top, or is it only happining to me? For example, this is a comment in reply to Joη but it went to the top.

...what would you rather have happen?

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

Pardon?

I dunno what you mean. Usually when I reply to a comment, or someone replies to mine, the reply would go under the original comment in which it was in reply to. I would rather have it how it used to be, but if not that is okay.

..oh, the comment sort order in the thread

I thought you were talking about the AFT on right.

fiddle with your settings here, it sounds like you have "flat list, expanded" but you probably want "threaded list, expanded".

Thank you

that was a simple fix. So simple I now feel a little stupid.lol
Thanks again.

Thank You Mods

....for all you do tirelessly and sometimes thanklessly. This has been a difficult 48 hours. The DP is alive and well. We can weather any storm.

As I turn in...I was just thinking of the things I'm grateful for!

Thank you for your continued support of the thread.

Is there any way

I can change a setting to see comments that were collapsed due to too many down-votes? I went to check a comment in reply to mine, and it is collapsed and have no way to find out what it said. Is it the settings on my end, or just how the DP comment section is set up? I care none for censorship, and if it is due to the settings on my end is there a way to change it? Thank you

clicking on the comment doesn't maximize it?

?

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

It's on the page

with over 2300 comments. When I click on the comment in my account it doesn't locate it (probably because it has so many comments) and starts at the top of the page. I have located it myself though and when I click on the collapsed comment that was in reply to mine the darn thing takes me to the top of the page.lol I am assuming it is because the post was overwhelmed in the comment section. Just to be sure for future reference, is there a setting on my end that can keep them from collapsing all together or is that option not available?

hm

well there's always the permalink view.

The permalink for your above comment is:

http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/2533337
Replace the last # in that link with the # of the comment you want to see. You can get it by right-clicking on the minimized comment & copying the link, pasting it somewhere & cutting off the number at the very end.

Clicking on minimized comments should open them up if you're logged in, though, this needs to be investigated.

Anyway, your original question, "is there a threshold to minimize comments?": there was, but no one (I mean, 10 of 50k users) was using it, so it was removed.

Okay thank you

for the info, it is much appreciated.

post unpublished

My post "Has Ron Paul been disappeared" has been unpublished.

http://www.dailypaul.com/238733/has-ron-paul-been-disappeared

I'm hoping it was a mistake. If not I would like to understand why.

Joη's picture

being "absent for 12 hours" does not constitute resignation

implying he was "disappeared", or militarily detained (with barbed-wire fence in front of an American flag imagery), with your only evidence being "no evidence" isn't convincing, and to me is borderline fear-mongering. Your post was 9 sentences with 6 word-linked advertisements, and you ended it with insisting "Ron Paul must X".

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

LOL! I thought it was because I asked him if he was a

dingleberry, you removed it.

There is this little thing we

There is this little thing we people with an IQ larger than our shoe size refer to as black satire. This article was intended for those who can think past the words.
Frankly, I wish Ron Paul had been disappeared as this would be better than the alternative, which says this whole thing was planned out the gate and we have been used to maneuver Ron Paul's son deeper into the neo-con dominated Republican Party. And now he has slipped out the back door and sleazed into the shadows to avoid facing us.
As for the ad links, they are just a part of every article. I'm sorry you were too ignorant to understand the true meaning of this piece.
By the way, I think your site is about through as it is a "Ron Paul" site. On the other hand, my site is a patriot site and will go on. Have a nice day.

Trojan Virus

I got a trojan virus today by visiting this site. I wasn't sure at first but I tried to open this web page again and the virus got on my computer again. I'm sure you're aware of it by now.

Joη's picture

That had to have come from somewhere else

possibly a site linked in user submitted content on this site, which, if you can identify, may help in diagnosing.

It is very strongly in the DP's ad provider's interest to assure this never happens, so I've no reason to think one of their ads would cause this.

I've never encountered this here ever, and re-scanned with Ad-Aware & Malwarebytes; they show nothing.

There's also a slight chance that your virus program is part of a threat network that relies on how Google determines malicious sites in some fashion, and the recent miscommunications there haven't updated.

For the first time ever...

About two days ago, when I go to certain posts on the DP it will open a new tab with a full page ad.

Are you aware of anything like this from one of the ad providers? I don't mind the ads at all since it helps pay for the DP... So not complaining about that. I am just trying to understand if this is a specific new ad mechanism, or something else?

I've still never encountered this.

It hasn't happened since I mentioned it here...

It may have been a renegade ad launching an improper script. I doubt it was specific to my machine, but it no longer seems to be happening so I wouldn't worry about it.
