Don’t ask me to explain.
Is HP doing the credit card thing? If so, that’s a socio-economic level deeper than voter suppression laws. Freedom of speech on a supposedly liberal opinion outlet? Voting versus speaking… which is more important… I can’t believe HP has me pondering this.
Not a peep from them. If they do, I can envision the cons buying up all of the access to the site.
If I had a credit card, an AOL company is the last one I would want knowing my business!
Question: Absolute verification of identity: Ultimately good or bad?
On a public site, with who knows how many having access to the data, and which may ultimately be sold to someone you would not want in possession of your info?
I would say on ANY site, that is not business or not a.gov . I don’t think Huffington Post, Facebok, the New York Times, YouTube, Twitter, JackHole’s realm should ever have any such information — pretty much any site that is where you need to access information or pay bills, access your bank account etc. Is acceptable.
Thanks for clarifying my point, Jack. Agreed.
Absolute means anyone can identify anyone, including the exploiters. Sorting them out becomes a legal matter. Are we capable of that shift?
The longer HP drags this out with no answers the more people will leave.
I’m afraid you’re right, Blue. It’s often the case with these upper-management decisions made in a vacuum. They sit around the table with a Great New Idea and convince themselves it’s really, really good.
Then when they announce it to the common-folk and get an unexpected response, they go into defense-mode instead of doing what they should have done in the first place – listen to their people!
It’s another metric of value – “they” know what’s best for “us”, and “we” don’t understand the “big picture”. Continually underestimating your people is a disaster for any company, HP is no different and this isn’t the first time they’ve done it.
For me, it’s just a question of when now – not “if”.
I was ready to pull the plug early this morning RF. That Jak Handy and all his incarnates have had me fedup with the place. I reported him 3 times and flagged everyone of his comments. I finally contact HP and here is there response to me:
Thank you for the report.
We have investigated and taken the appropriate action, however, because of privacy rules we cannot share the specifics of that action.
Thanks again, and have a great day!”
If this a fucking joke, “privacy rules.”
That poster is one of the deranged people that HP should have no trouble spotting or taking action against. And he’s one of those that the new rules will not stop – such single-minded determination to go on and post such crap won’t be stopped by a few extra steps in the verification process.
I’ve seen him come on 3-4-5 times in a night, then go away for an hour and come back with another bagful of socks and start over. it will just take him a bit longer to set up sock accounts, but without HP improving their moderation department he will not be stopped nor will the frustrating problems we all have with the moderation process be improved.
Elizabeth Warren: ‘Now, more than ever, the U.S. needs a strong labor movement’
Well and truly said! http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/09/02/1235699/-Elizabeth-Warren-Now-more-than-ever-the-U-S-needs-a-strong-labor-movement?detail=email
Robert Reich, Bill Moyers other decent smart sane people have likewise been saying the same for years!
Hi everyone, bye everyone – heading over to the gym.
Laterz, have fun.
Don’t work too hard. Geez that was an oxymoron.
WordPress really needs a “Fave” button 😀
Put in a couple of laps for me, please – I’ve been couch-potatoing too long and need some exercise but it’s a lot of work 😉
I could masturbate to this.
Hey Ando. I have been thinking about you and what going to post where are you.
Hello, old friend! Good to see you!
Ewwwww – No wonder your bowl looks like it does.
Hiya, fishie friend!!
How are you doing? Are you running that place yet?
Oh snap! I did not know he was in jail 🙂
It is great to see you! I hope all is well?
It is! Good to see you!
I can build you a new realm. I’ve been working with wordpress custom themes. Could build something like this:
That’s pretty sharp.
I’ll catch you on chat about that.
Nice, I found WordPress too hard for my feeble puter skills, so I’m on Homestead…much more my speed, but I still hit snags. (think chimp with a typewriter)
ANDO!!! but your fins are too short!
(… on further consideration, I suppose having short fins don’t get into it?)
Dude! I’ve been playing with the free WordPress for a local group, it’s addicting! Simple stuff, mostly static pages – I’m no way near to manipulating the language or any heavy lifting, and the free WP template is pretty limited, but I’ve sorted out how to do jumps up and down the page! Woot!
Dang – you’d do a great job on a New Realm if it ever comes to that!
Good to see you here again!!
You too, man. Wordrpress sites are pretty popular. The way it’s arranged, you’re clients can have a complete content management system and not know anything about html or dynamic middleware platforms.
Agreed – it’s a great way for people to get some stick-time on websites and get them running quickly. Once you start hitting the limitations, you know enough to move on to the next step.
They (WordPress) also take care of all the security and hosting stuff. The fee-version of WP is an interim step, with a lot more options and choices of hosting systems.
You have too many limitations with WordPress hosting. Best to install it and host it elsewhere.
hey ando, great to see you!
You will regret making that photo
One thing I’ve noticed over on HP is that on the threads that talk about the upcoming changes, it seems that at the least 75% of the community still isn’t aware of the new policy, and, the Realm is doing a better job of trying to correct the situation than the HP community.
Now trying to prevent a mass migration out. HP is in for a big surprise
The Defiant is ready to shuttle people away. More ships are on stand-by.
Yeah, it seems that either the community isn’t aware or most of the old posters have been in this rodeo and are just waiting to decide whether to stay or go, not trying to change the Corporate Mind this time…
I’m about done over there – no feedback from HP either on the thread or via eMail, and Gawd knows I’ve been ringing the bell enough.
About time to back away and let nature take its course.
Hi, RF! You big conspiracy theorist you 😉
I agree, it seems that most are still unaware of the new policy. You have done a Most Honourable job of stating the concerns of the community.
Also, double check the sources of all news about Syria. There is a massive misinformation campaign that is being carried out right now. CG recently posted a link to something that we still have not been able to confirm, but that hasn’t stopped that link from growing legs and spreading into another rumor. If anything make certain you know where the arguments for and against military action are coming from.
Good advice – there are too many stories out there. Which one are you trying to track down?
I’m still looking into the one you linked, also there is another one that branches off of that one and is implicating Saudi Arabia as the source of the chemicals used in the attack, I haven’t been able to find anything of merit while searching that one out and it leads me to think that it is part of a two-pronged message trying to shift the blame away from the Assad regime.
Also, there is another article that suggests that it was either AQ or Al-Nursa (Basically both because they are joined at the hip), claiming that they set the weapons off by ‘accident.’ That article is also unverified and the very text of the article (I’ll look for it), the text of the article is trying to suggest that either AQ or Al-Nursa had an unfortunate accident, and that we should trust the words of those sicko’s, pure misinformation.
Yep, I’m tired of trying to keep all of the conflicting theories straight.
I plan on writing a comment soon about the ‘as stated policy’ and the misinformation surrounding it all. I’m not taking a side in it, that is for another comment, I simply want a outline of what is true and what is not true in the reporting and the un-reporting.
Good luck with that – I doubt we’ll ever know exactly what’s going on over there. That’s why it’s called “The Great Game”.
I have a lot of links about it, it does require a lot of background information leading up to it, but I think I can create something like a timeline or an outline about things.
Making a Syrian image should be fun.
Make certain you include Rand Paul
Note: To all of the new members that are joining the site. Jack is without Honor, he is the equivalent of a Neville Chamberlain. He prefers Cylons over human beings, even going as far as to call for the complete extermination of every human species in the galaxy.
All freedom loving Human species deserve a right to exist in this and every other galaxy. Don’t buy in for one second the propaganda coming from Jack.
But he does keep a good supply of Tranya and Blood Wine in the liquor cabinet 😉
Leave it to a Klingon to whine.
This is true, little does he know that a transporter can get a lock on the contents of the safe and beam them out.
Don’t listen to Neb the hat is wearing too tight⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆
And then there is us bulls.
Do you know about the bull of Heaven?
Bulls have more Honor than Cylons!
Bulls are worshiped Klingons are not.
~ahem~ So are kittehs.
Go plug yourself into an electrical outlet an short circuit.

You better let them know about fight night.
They will know, don’t you worry about that.
I thought that was Wednesday’s.
Time for me to be Al Bundy and Rub Peggy’s butt back in 20
Off to the races – see you later.
Hey Classical. Later.
Anybody home? http://activerain.com/image_store/uploads/5/1/5/0/6/ar13326841760515.jpg
I’m here! Hey, Fluff.
Hey Fluffer. How cool is that.
Spent most of the day working on my Family genealogy website. I’ve created a photo slideshow in the Windows Live Movie Maker, but I can’t find the way to save it as a file the website accepts…is a puzzlement??
But I’ve done enough on it today, I’ll think about the other stuff TOMORROW
Hey Boy. How far back have you traced your family history?
one branch back to Rome 66 AD (my maternal great grandmother)
Hi, Boy. Sounds like quite a project.
Hey, Hipsters! Just chillin’ in Jackhole Paris Cafe –
Beau wants company, so I’ll c’ya later
Laters. Have to fix dinner myself in a few.
What are you up to copper?
Well I just spent the last four days in Omaha. Now it’s back to the grind…Biochem and Physiology.
Wake up you bums!!!!!!!!!!
woo hoo! Don’t you all post at the same time now.
Let’s see………………….. HP sucks!
Ron Paul for president!!!!!!!!!!
Hey, Jack! Wazzzzup?
Fluff!!!!!!!!! not much, just hanging out here – was up with you anything fun?
Pfffft. A Tuesday that felt like a Monday and WWIII on the horizon. Where’s the fun in that? How about you?
hangnail I win.
You need a new page, Jack. With more visitors you need to crank out two or three a day. 🙂
I’m working on one now – but it’s a mandatory midnight posting.
Let’s do an hour page.
How about an HP type format. A whole bunch of pages to choose from. And don’t forget the side-boob column.
