Just now I tried viewing a number of "new content" articles WITHOUT signing in and could not. (Kept getting an error page.) It was working fine on Friday.

"new content" hasn't worked for me for a long time. I just assumed I have a setting wrong.

It worked fine on Friday. It didn't work this morning. Why the fuck do we need to log in now to read the news and comments? (You can see how "views" have dropped because of this.)

Haven't seen views drop.  Especially since I've been paying attention to them, and where they're from.

 

Apparently many are using VPN and many are from China, Romania and flat out Russia.  Kinda eerie.

 

Your "Antifa" thread has had 3 views in over 2 hours now.

 

Your "Army lifts ban" thread has had only 6 views in 2.5 hours.

 

Pre Friday, if I'd started a thread I'd have at least 3 views in 5 minutes.

The paid poster are complaining about their number of hits.  They won't get paid if the only views are just us regular folks.

Here we are almost 2 hours later (almost 4 hours and 4.5 total) and you still only have 3 and 6 views... and you think not seeing news stories without having to sign in  (since Friday) is having no effect on views. LOL

Never said it is not having any affect and is in fact having a negative effect.  

 

HOWEVER: Currently there are a few lurking out there, at least 3 from China

Are we back to being concerned about liability??

 

My understanding:

 

People who personally participate have no basis for any legal action as long as they are not outed.

 

Public figures (eg Ian Hodge, Jr.) are fair game, period.

Feeling guilty?

 

Where'd that come from?  

 

People ALWAYS have legal action open to them - ALWAYS.  May not win, may be deemed frivolous, may be deemed asinine, may be deemed as begrudged bull shit action - but it is ALWAYS available to them.  Like that retard who sued McDonalds because the coffee was hot!

 

Having testified in court on so many occasions you of all should know that.

 

Speaking of questionable actions of legality - just saw Tom Steyer again - what a pathetic piece of shit he is.

Why are we making it harder for outsiders to see posts?

So... the new forum policy today is that you have to log in to see threads? Why?

 

Never said it is not having any affect and is in fact having a negative effect.  

 

HOWEVER: Currently there are a few lurking out there, at least 3 from China

 

27 users are online (in the past 5 minutes)

2 members, 25 guests, 0 anonymous users   (See full list)

 

So?... only 2 can view the threads now and 25 can not.

So... is the forum ever going back to the way it was last Friday meaning we could read news threads without logging in?

Seems a lot of “guests†have been checking out my profile.

I’m not sure this way is a bad idea. I have no visions of grandor in having a large audience. Maybe some lurkers now decide to become members.

"Guests" can no longer access threads and then can no longer see ADs. Most people would rather read comments than participate and have their lil feelings hurt.

I am sorry "the public" won't get to read PoM's classic comments on the Letters to the Editor anymore.

:(

 

maybe you need to comment on them on Lancaster Online also, PoM.

(of course that is, only if the spirit moves you to do that.)

You see firsthand what is happening to our little site here, yet you deny any Russian involvement in the election? Sorry, chief you can't have it both ways. Time for a reality check for you.

Only foolish idiots take information spread by facebook, twitter and blogs as gospel.

 

MORONS they are.
