Looks like the Sheepers might, MIGHT, get a one-week respite in between the Griftathons begging this time around.

Maybe it's not having the impact they claim to have? And you STILL can't edit your postings - that'll cost you another few million, say the Breadstick Robinsons. They ought to just buy their own Olive Garden franchise and be done with it once and for all.

Stop The Hammering!

Have the Robs or any of their lieutenants actually mentioned that this feature would "cost" anything? Or even offered it?

Most paranoid org ever.

They have the feature and have had it for a long time. They just don't enable it for ordinary users.

JohnRob is a credible Perl coder. And editing a post is pretty easy stuff. You'd be surprised how little code it takes if you look at the source code for Pinguinite, LF's Perl code.

They don't offer post editing because they just don't want to. And there are people who would play games with it if they enabled it.

I think people will be tittering about that for some time whenever O'Donnell's name comes up.

OTOH, I for once took O'Donnell's side, much as I hate that vile foul-mouthed hateful turd. It looked to me like he had plenty of cause to be furious with the lack of professionalism in his assigned studio. How hard is it to keep it quiet in the studio, to keep other audio from bleeding into his earpiece when he's talking, to follow his suggested blurbs to open/close the various segments he was taping for his show? I think any news or opinion pro would be just as furious. You think Limbaugh or Tucker Carlson or Vannity wouldn't go ballistic if they got treated like that in their own studio? C'mon, you know they would. And, for that matter, they should.

So exactly who is allowed to use this feature?

Stalinist Mod-Squaders and Goons?

JohnRob is a credible Perl coder.

But an incredibly poor Fairy Tale teller, rubber band saver and resuscitator of his Hamster Slaves.

1) "Oooops -- it's gonna take me ...er...a few hours to get to....er...our secret base somewhere in North America. Our rubber bands must be made in China!

2) "WE WUZ HACKED!! Dats right -- RUSSIANS!!"

I was only pointing out that lack of talent isn't why FR still has that whole Nineties Web 1.0 look. When I was on good terms with JohnRob and we corresponded some (I was writing a Firefox extension for FR), he showed me some hidden prototype versions of the site that were a lot slicker in their use of CSS, more minimalist, almost looking like Apple's website in their minimalism. I thought it was terrific stuff but he never went live with it. I'm not sure if RimJob spiked it or what but JohnRob was pretty sharp. He had some other ideas about caching and other server technologies that indicated that he stayed very current.

Of course, in the end, TOS is still a vanilla site, scripted in Perl and relying on a MySQL database. Just like LF does.

Do you find "sunny people" treated with any kind of malice or resentment there?

Has to be Jim's call. A financial consideration first and foremost I imagine. #2: Paranoia.

No edit feature aa well as others keep it simple instead of "complicating" Mods' jobs of oversight and minimizing potential unwanted re-posts.

Most of their posters prefer simple in any case; Circa 1998 look and feel is part of the charm of FR. It's like visiting an old Stalinist friend who never changes.

As comforting as chewing free breadsticks at Olive Garden like a cow chewing her cud.

That paragraph should be samizdat posted over there, where it might do some good and wake the sheeple the hell up after all these millions of dollars.

Starting a thread over there with that information would be interesting to watch.

I was reading this page and noticed something.

LifeSiteNews: 62 scholars correct Pope Francis for ‘propagating heresies’

They are running their own fundraiser. I looked at their Donate link and it led to:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/give?utm_source=website&utm_medium=takeover&utm_campaign=fall_campaign_2017

So apparently they are running quarterly fundraisers, apparently in the range of $220,000 (I guessimate that because they have a graph a little less than a third "full" that is showing $162K to go in the next 7 days). They are a tax-deductible charity as well.

Of course, they have major expenses. Along with major bandwidth and hosting costs, they have a stable of talented professional writers, modern website design, full social networking integration features, etc.

I may be comparing apples and oranges here but maybe not. I don't think TOS could inspire any kind of meaningful freeping (activism) in recent years even if they offered free unlimited breadsticks at Olive Garden. You probably couldn't even lure them into slamming some cheesy PollDaddy online poll any more. It seems like their main "activism" is giving money to RimJob. Of course, I seldom visit there any more due to the general atmosphere of a Soviet gulag camp in Siberia but my rare visits there certainly give me that impression.
