Could you please publish my post? =)

was caught by the spam filter (probably for the video links). It's the full videos of Dr. Paul at the Louisiana College rally/town hall yesterday.

Also, a media embed would be appreciated as well!

Come on. We're not publishing people's work/ contact info so that other people can go harass him at work. This verges on organized stalking.

That is creepy, and not the way I want this website to be used.

He's the man.

Fair Enough

But it's no wonder these guys will never stop doing what they do. There are no offsetting consequences. One man's organized stalking is another's vigilante justice. I don't see how organizing negative book reviews is much more noble. But your site, your call. Thanks for getting back to me.

Hello mods let me know how to fix message to be OK.

Hi understand the need for monitoring posts. A post is currently pending on my account.

I am trying to reach people in the Northern California area so they can sign our petition to host Dr. Paul on campus. We did contact Youth For Paul and are actively submitting data.

Please review my post and suggest any edits or please edit to make it work. I am sure that users will find this post useful.

More information on our data collection and what we are asking please check out the site.

I see the FAQs say post direct links but I am not sure if an index page exists as survey monkey is handling the page.

Get rid of the moderators

Simple. And ban forever those that use foul language.

Then this site would cease to exist

Get real.

He's the man.

I don't mind being unpublished

I'd read the original post and it had no information such as I included in mine, specifically, no link to an article specifying the official announcement.

So, after waiting and seeing no one was posting the update info I posted mine.

It's kinda strange how these things work.

Mostly, I couldn't care less about audience size for a post I make.

Some people seem a little overeager and quite a bit dishonest about what they claim as their own intellectual property...especially since they just lift the stuff off others.

Thank you so very much.

I have no clue why something like that would be posted here,Thank you!

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 am hoping we have more integrity than this


Even though it is in off topic it needs to go?

Please Help - I was erroneously unpublished by the spam filter

My post is: http://www.dailypaul.com/node/222114

I just went into my post and edited a few incorrect words, and
when I hit "save" I was told that my post is now" erroneously unpublished by the spam filter". Are you the one to fix this?

Bumped your original post

Still not quite right . . .

Thank you for your fast and efficient reply last night.

This is the first time ever that I have made a video and first time ever to post it to Daily Paul.

My Original post was [ http://www.dailypaul.com/node/222113 ]

After posting this and re-reading it, I realized that I had a few words wrong. Instead of saying "nine jpeg files" I edited it to say "nine zipped PDF files". I believe that the edited version of the post was node/222114.

Then you responded by informing me that rather than editing the original post, I had actually ended up creating a 2nd post. You then deleted node/222114. So, what is there right now is the original unedited node/222113.

The only way to find this is to go thru page after page of the Active Forum Topics - because right now if you do a search for Ron Paul BigHead Video, you end up with the "404 Page Not Found" message.

Could you please help me to get this back to where a person can do a search to find this?

Than you very much. (Sorry I messed things up.)



Image/Video embed question


If this is the right place to ask can you embed the image link included in that post?

If it's NOT the right way to do it can you point me to instructions?

I've read everything I've seen on the instructions and I have found no instructions on how to ask for embed.

I HAVE read enough now to understand NOT to request embed in the post itself so I have discontinued that nasty and regrettable habit.

I think this guy may be hurting us

I think "egan1970" is guilty of breaking the "Daily Paul House Rules and Posting Guidelines", specifically #7. Not to censor, but I believe this is a community to share ideas and news in the ultimate goal to get Dr. Paul elected. However, with "egan1970"'s various posts and comments, I think he may harm Dr. Paul's campaign and/or sway some voters, specifically those who are new to this sight and those that are curious and just learning about Dr. Paul. If you check his posts out, I think you will agree. Whether he's a spy for the other campaigns, or simply a troll (which I doubt) I think he's a hazard more than an annoyance.

But he offered to be my friend

even after I suggested that he is third party go join the Gary Johnson campaingn. I think he is lonly.


I've wondered about him too

Mostly, he's been amusing. I think it's a valid concern though that new people might get the wrong idea.

On the whole, I like the DailyPaul for tolerance. It's a fine line.

Ammusing trolls I can tolerate, but

this guy is planting seeds in people's minds who may not know any better. New people just coming to the sight may not just be getting the wrong idea. Those just beginning to open their eyes are susceptible to believing him or thinking along the lines of "why bother to join a sinking ship", before actually learning and coming over to the light - hence my concern. He's also likely to influence those that are way too easily give up after disappointing news - hence my additional point. All tolerance aside, I think this election is too important to let this guy stay. He could be feeding info to the opposing campaigns for all we know. It's only lately that we're starting to get reports of Chairmen "controlling" the caucuses so that we don't "hi-jack" them. For the benefit of the campaign and Dr. Paul, I say we kick this guy out.

I hear ya

I just figure they know about it--- they do now at least :) --- and it's their decision.

I've figured there is some pro Libertarian trolling which I haven't liked (and I'm a Libertarian who believed it would be better to go Independent/Third all the way).

I figure the site is for support of Ron Paul's decision, and the membership needs to be respected, which I don't think is the case with most of the 3rd party appeals.

Egad strikes me as one of them.


Is a two way street my friend. But I agree.

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.


Please move this thread to off-topic: http://www.dailypaul.com/221459/an-atheist-credo

If there were a "very off topic stuff calculated to divide us" category, it would belong there.
