We helped them to build up the way there were.
Now greed sets in and I call it a self destructive site where they eat their own…ugh…
Absolutely! I guess Aribannya decided to come out of her Con Closet!
It’s just like a corporate raid. We are the assets, and they are selling us off to make money. This does not bode well for HP in the long term. But something tells me this was AOL’s plan all along.
There are a number of posters with two or three fans praising the new HP “system.”
Yeah…… I’m sure those are their actual names.
See ya later, guys.
Hello I see that..
Plants..as a gardener I recognize ’em….8-)
XO..how he site could be soooo stupid i wonder..
$$$ in 3Y3S, BB..XO….8-)
Stupidity running amok…
TG are you there ?
BreitFart’s Revenge – they managed to kill the most vibrant liberal community online. Wonder how much the Kochs plowed into getting this accomplished…
Yep! I wonder how much FB stock the Kochs own?
I think AH did a fine job all by herself when she sold to AOL.
I find it darkly amusing that their headline screams V-DAY. V for verification of identity.

Took the words right off my keyboard, wave… 😉 ….8-)
I’m down 20 friends and counting.
The Mandela funeral story has a whopping 300 comments.
I saw that..that was since morning !
Now I must look for my other dreamy galpal
Blue we’re here where are you ?
My other comment here didn’t go through. I saw what as happening on HP. I’ve lost 20 friends so far and expect a lot more.
I don’t understand why my comment to you didn’t show.
I see you !
I made another comment to you and it hasn’t shown up.
Word Press has been acting wonky for the past few days now.
Thanks, I thought it was just me.
Haruko. I’m watching the ship sink.
Hi Haruko. I’m watching the ship sink at the other place.
300 comments on the Mandela funeral….
Blue, is your fan count going down ?
20 so far.
22 right now. I expect by the end of the day it will be 100+
~ sigh~ time will tell. It’s only 3:37 ET
Hi Blue – I tried to reply to you on the MacSnowjob thread but got FB’d. Also got FB’d when I tried to reply to GMB007 in my notifications – they’ve been thorough in closing all the avenues, that’s unexpectedly working FINE as opposed to their other rollouts…
Good to see you here!
Hi RF. I went to HP this morning to read and saw what was going on. Unbelievable. I think the exodus is going to be worse than when AOL bought the place.
I’m not closing my account, but I HAVE been unfriending some (Like MurphTheSurf) who have obviously partaken of the Kool-Aid that THEY helped create.
I have respected Murph as a political commentator and interacted with him for years, but this one is where we part company.
Ditto on all of the above, RF.
This will separate the sheep from the goats.
How were you able to unfan, RF? I can’t even fave at this point.
If the “fan” heart is red, means you’ve fanned the poster. Click it to make it grey, you’ve unfanned them.
I’m not closing my account either. Waiting for them to realize this is a big mistake.
And they have the fucking gall to ask you if you don’t want to verify, but you can still just watch and fav comments to give the illusion there are still people on this site.
You can still fan people too.
Right, why have an account then at all ?
This place still works… mostly.
I saw termgirl was having issues above.
I got a hiccup yesterday when WP signed me out for some reason. I still had my eMail and ‘stuff’ in the comment box here, but kept getting the “WordPress cannot post this comment” error.
I had to go to a new tab and sign into WP again, then refresh here.
One telltale sign is the missing black ‘control bar’ across the top of the page when you’re signed into WP. Mine was missing when I was having the problems, when it came back after I signed in was also when I could post comments again.
So the rumor was true after all, huffy finally went through with order 66–the purge. I guess that means they’ve been lying to us all along. but, but, they wouldn’t do a thing like that now would they?
Ooooh, noes! HP lied to us?!? Bwahahahaha!
I know, right? Hi gas.
Hiya, pluto. They can shove it where the sun don’t shine.
Yep, all they way. Hi Ricki.
Of course, we could simply write a letter and identify each other.

@Tim McDonald: Get a clue, dude…

. Thank you General.
He’s drunk on the HP sauce.
I saw that. I thought, Huh?? 😆
Take note: Tim McAssWipe there is encouraging mer59 being trolled.
look at the front page.
i dunno if the comment number means anything, but HP seriously fucked up.
The comment numbers dropped dramatically when they rolled-out the new format. Now that they have effectively banned a large part of their commenting population all they help left will be the corporate-account Trolls.
I have suspected for a long time that HP has been selling blocks of socks with ‘special’ posting capabilities that bypass the moderation. I think all they will have left on that site are the worthless trolls with their talking points, pre-‘verified’ to fake FB accounts (if that is even necessary for them).
HP sells everything, it has always been about the $$ and not about the community that formed there.
Dude – you stole my conspiracy theory!!!
It’s a good one, it bears stealing and repeating!
Oh my word…this was another one to me I posted above…
Now the Name is showing Up !!!!

1,182 Fans·My GR’s are just like me, except they’re innocent.
Not new posters. Other posters. We had our time, now it’s time for a new generation.

Looks from the timestamp that he must have opted-in to the FB thing.
RF..did you see the names..most are fakes..then I see this.., this got away..looks like..lol..
A new generation of vapid blabbering, just like the AOL threads of old.
And they called me a conspiracy theorist… Is there anyone left who believes that they were acting in good faith? A few seemed to be holding out on that vain hope. not anymore I suspect.
I was one. I really thought when they said they understood my security concerns and I didn’t have to worry about it that it was a done deal. Now I’m just keeping my account open to watch my fan count drop like a brick.
They lied to you gramma, to all of us, they only sought to postpone the inevitable purge so they didn’t have a mass exodus, they let it trickle out slowly over months. It will be interesting to see what happens now.
I’m down 15 fans today.
I’m about the same, but several because _I_ nuked them…
I haven’t nuked any myself.
I look forward to taking a midnight count!
Me, too. I think 8 a.m. tomorrow, 24 hours after they launched the missile, will also be quite telling. Also, when the weekenders try to comment Fri., Sat., and Sun.

FUCKING GODDAMN LIARS.
I’m so pissed off I can barely think.
I am so with you !!!
gmb007, you need to come over to the new page.
FB/HP wants your mobile number (that’s the actual “verification”) because GPS tracks the location of your phone – and YOU.
Makes life SO easy for NSA and LEO to snatch your ass if your stray off the Approved Comments Reservation with an unapproved, subversive, “terroristic” post.
Remember – AOL is one of NSA’s “source partners”.
Welcome to HuffHell.
Hey welcome gmb007 !!! Nice to see you !
Yeah I saw that FB “verification” thing requiring your mobile number. WTH !!!
Dear gmb007…greetings !
This is gypsy
HI, Gypsy!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Howdy-hi, gmb..so glad to see you here!….8-)
So glad to see you, Four Eyes!! 🙂
Come on over to the top page, my friend..the link is just above your post..Many peeps want to say HIYA!….8-)
Hai, GMB, come join us on the top page!
“So, I went to verify, and got this message: “The Huffington Post will receive the following info: your public profile, friend list, email address, News Feed, birthday, interests, current city, personal description and likes.”
Do you really need all this, HuffPost? What are you going to do with it? …”

HP is being overrun with slavering, obedient, docile lemmings.
Gmb007 follow the link above your posts.
AMAZING how all these (new) anti-anonymity fans all of a sudden sprouted out of the woodwork and can’t praise HP enough!
More like fake-account, pro-HP provocateurs.
HP has morphed into the Online 1984.
Hi, gmb! I’m glad to see you here. Please come over to the newest page and join us.
