Please approve the post I just submitted re: starting a grassroots persuasion campaign modeled on how we pitched Nassim Taleb.

wont publish

can't publish

hi mods,

I tried publishing this (http://www.dailypaul.com/node/207477) but I get a gateway timeout error everytime. It does show up under my account as unpublished. Is this the spamfilter, or my crappy internet?

update.. can't post replies

update.. can't post replies either..

PLEASE READ and consider...

I have an idea for a "fixed application" on the Daily Paul that might be beneficial to the organization of our efforts! I have not seen a "delegate counter" anywhere on the webs. I am not suggesting a typical counter with the name of the candidate and the number of delegates they already have. I am suggesting that we compile the necessary data of all of the delegates for all states so we can have a "formulaic delegate tracking system" that shows exactly what we need. This will not only help us with focusing on what states need to be targeted, but also will give us a very accurate idea of what the final outcome will be.

Thanks for your consideration!

Gross pictures

PLEASE do not post gross photos on the daily paul, it lowers the
caliber of the this website and is very offensive.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.

and the reason would be?

Why did you delete my post? Is this not a perfect example regarding the lack of integrity regarding the MODS of this site?

upcoming state primaries need dedicated forums, front page link

Hi from NH here, I got my town to vote Dr. Paul. It would be awesome for people to be able to see a link up top pertaining to thier state, and a whole forum for each state as well. It could have a chip in, SB for that state, meetups, and a moderator who is active in that state as well. See my other posts about this subject. Anything we can do to coordinate efforts would be EXTREMELY helpful. Right now very good posts pertaining to state primaries and caucuses are getting burried and forgotten. Front page exposure!

Post was unpublished

I just joined and posted about a very prominent endorsement we received this morning. Could you please publish my post?

Thank you!

new poster needing some help


I posted a new thread to recruit Oklahoma county coordinators for the nationa ron paul campaign but the server kept timing out. Eventually I looked at my recent posts and found three copies but they are unpublished.

I tried to delete two of the copies but again the server timed out.

Can you fix this? I really need to get the word out.

One possibility

The spam filter might have took it down, OR because the email address you wrote is a non-public 'internal' email address from the campaign, it could have been unpublished by someone.

(but then a mod would've noticed it in the revision history)

none being here, it was considered spam by our very un-learning spam filter...

Will a moderator read my poem and decide if it gets added ?

I was hoping to add my poem....It is a little long....

Probably caugth because it's a bit long, but the nature of the item warrants the length.

recommending Paul voters suddenly switch their vote to Romney?

in some ambiguously-interpretable strategy to reduce the number of candidates? It's in the realm of "getting everyone else to do something" hours before the event, began with the ever-so-overused BREAKING! headline, and purported to present the title as verifying a fact that wasn't one at all. And you even admitted it's a bad idea.


Appreciate your participation, but don't recommend/hint/strategize that people should switch their vote from Paul.

Another bit of irony...

Adding Ron Paul's votes to Romney's would have given Romney a lead over Gingrich by about 3000 votes. This might have been the death blow that knocked Gingrich out of the race. I guess we'll never know.

Common now...

I think the viewer had ample warning and I wasn't trying to fool anybody. So sue me for having a catchy title. I'm looking for comment on the subject matter itself and whether it could work or not...not whether or not it should be published. If I really wanted to do harm I would have posted this a week ago and blasted it on the interwebs, but I didn't. I thought our clan and this site was more open-minded. I knew that I would get push back because I realize it's a controversial idea. But I never suspected the DP would unpublish the thread altogether within minutes of my posting it. That's the sort of thing I'd expect from the mainstream sites that we rail so hard against for not including our comments or discussion about Ron Paul. I find it ironic that we ask Democrats to switch parties and register (Blue) Republican and vote for Ron Paul just in the primary, but if we are asked to switch for strategic reasons it's blasphemy.

We're principled here

We don't vote for evil. Asking a Democrat to vote for Ron Paul is asking them to vote for good.

I get that...and at least you provided an answer to the question

as opposed to objecting to it being published. We are principled, but we must also be realistic and strategic, without compromising those principles. I think it's fair to say we knew that Ron wouldn't win SC. He might do well there, but it would have been a major long shot. The Paul campaign wants to get it down to a 2-candidate race and SC was being setup by the media and establishment as Newt latest launching pad. The thought, although unconventional and crazy to some, was to put Newt out of his misery before he could pick up any steam.

As it stands, Newt is heading into FL with a lot of momentum and has a good chance to win there. When I made the post I wasn't aware that Gingrich and Santorum don't qualify for 564 delegates for not getting on the ballots in some states. I came across this over the weekend. I knew about Virginia and a couple others, but I didn't know they were that careless. If this holds true, maybe Newt isn't as much of a threat after all and he and Romney can beat each up for a while. I've got a sneaky feeling, though, that some backroom dealings will allow them on the ballots or take write-in votes.

Post was unpublished. New to site. any suggestions?



Hi Mod. My 'Why did the chickenhawk cross the road?' post became unpublished! Please fix if you can. Thank you. It was almost at the top of the Top Recent Topics section and then it disappeared:(

Please post the following evidence of new Blackout efforts

I have tried to use the following as a comment or the start of a forum topic in order to present the following info:

Look at the following websites and their coverage of Dr. Paul's undeniably incredible performance:

Yahoo - NO MENTION WHATSOEVER - http://preview.tinyurl.com/YahooRPCoverage

Fox News - mentioned twice in the FOURTEENTH paragraph and a third time in the final sentence - http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/01/19/gop-debate-romney...

CNN - On the "Politics" page, Dr. Paul is only seen in two stories on the very bottom of the page. One story is by Dana Bash, the other story is about supporters whose amazing weather balloon advertising temporarily hindered highway traffic. - http://www.cnn.com/POLITICS/

Politico - First mentioned on the THIRD PAGE and only to claim that he disappeared during the debate and had NO memorable or worthwhile lines - http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0112/71708.html

Those were the first - and so far, only - sites which I have checked and they ALL are blacking out Dr. Paul. Spread this blatant bias! It is inexcusable, unethical, and impossible to ignore.

Good Job Web Folks - The site is running fine !

Almost 1,000 online - no problems.

Video Explanation Section

For those new and seasoned on the DP, there's still a lot who don't understand the specifics of how Fractional Reserve Banking Works, the "Golden Rule" of Foreign Policy, and other major components of the liberty movement that are commonly misunderstood or simply never heard of by newbies.

Create a video "liberty platform" section that showcases videos specific to these subjects that's very visible on the main page for ease of access.

I realize there are tons of videos already spread throughout the which I am thankful for, but one of my biggest pet peeves is glancing at a high rated video on the DP's main page or side threads that I end up forgetting the title for and then I'm forced to sift through tons of searches sometimes not finding what I'm looking for.

I suggest we select which top 5 videos get listed on Fractional Reserve (for example) based on the level of +votes and positive comments through the DP.

I also liked the idea of having the RP fund raising ticker on the main page permanent (probably somewhat smaller and to the side during non-money bomb times).

Hi - I just joined the Daily Paul community and published an article regarding a Campaign strategy for Ron Paul but I think the spam listed it as Unpublished. How can I get this article posted?
