HuffNo Friday 01
Arrianics!   Today is Thursday!   (I know because my wife kicked me out of bed to drag the trash to the kerb)

Tomorrow is HuffNo Friday.    It is our hope here that you will refrain from visiting Huff tomorrow.   Unless perhaps it is to urge others to come here.   But the idea is to cause a perceptible drop in page clicks.    This exercise was run for several weeks running many months ago, and was quite effective in impacting their numbers.

So we are asking you to spend some time at Huff today promoting HuffNo Friday.   Go to all the posters with whom you have a relationship, and just ask them to visit the planet today.

Be aware that you can get burned.    Huff could ban you, if they get wind of you promoting a protest.   Trust me, I know.

But the goal is to cause Huff some economic pain.    Nothing but money matters to them, so let’s make a point of denying them traffic on Fridays.    Let’s make the planet the destination of hundreds of Arrianiacs on Fridays especially.

AdLib adds:

UPDATE:
I have set up a WordPress site to refer people here and you CAN post that link at HuffPo (email me immediately if you think that link has become blacklisted too and I’ll set up another one).

That WordPress site simply tells people to click on the link that’s there so they can come here (you can click below to check it out). So, use this address as a link at HuffPo:

http://planetpov.wordpress.com/

You said it, Kev! Let me add a few suggestions.

As you say, best to create an extra account at HuffPo to use for inviting folks here for HuffNo Friday, very quick and easy to do and who cares if HuffPo bans it.

I do suggest being tactful about inviting people so as to make it less likely that Moderators give it too much attention. BTW, don’t worry about trolls reading your posts and coming here, there’s a zero tolerance here for hateful troll behavior and the site is set up so they can be shut down and out quickly.

To be clear, all points of view are welcome here, Progressive, conservative, Dem, Repub, Blue Dog, Independents, etc., as long as they join in as a good citizen of The Planet with respect for all other members.

Lastly, HuffPo has added the link to PlanetPov to their “no-no” list of words (heh, we’re up there with “9/11?, “gay” and “Ted Kennedy”) so an easy way to provide a link to here is to put a space between “planet” and “pov” like this: “http://planet pov.com” and mention that they should remove the space or just tell them to google “Planetpov”.

Should be a bit of fun here on Friday Night!

(Edited in order that AdLib’s addition does not slip to the bottom of the page.)

    You can count on me! I really hate that we got suckered in by A.H. af huffy! She seemed to turn damn quick…Too damn quick for me. President Obama haven’t been in office a year and already she’s bashing EVERYthing he and or his administration does. Her mission? Obama take down. I’ll also advise others as well.

      There is no “fair and balance” arguments on either extreme of the political spectrum these days. It’s all about daily outrage, hyperbole and screaming at the other side. I understand that the media tends to cover negative news and even has a negative spin but to generate faux outrage is beyond me. To me there are enough things to be outraged about in this country to make stuff up.

    • AdLib says:

      It seems like the election was a release for her. After all the years of playing adversary to Republicans, she could revert back to playing adversary to Democrats.

      Water seeks its own level. Arianna is settling in where she’s comfortable, opposing a Democratic President and his progressive agenda.

      She just thinks she’s so clever to attack him for not being liberal enough but it seems just a ploy to be able to attack him period.

      We’ll expose her, it may take time but I hear that these tubes of the internets move things around to other people’s computers quite a bit.

    Hello peeps

    For you K7 I’m down with you bro!

    It’s Friday here already, you mean I have to wait until Saturday to have any fun? :)

    Looking forward to it greatly. Just to give everyone a techie tip embedding YouTube videos is very easy on the Planet. Cut and past the YouTube link and type a “v” between “http” and “:” in the link. Voila your favorite music selection will show up magically in your post. The only limitation is the video has to have embedding enabled on YouTube.

    I like this plan. In fact, planetPOV has already made me change the way I react to troll comments. I am finding it easier to ignore and not engage knowing that a better place exists for real discussion.

    • FeloniousMonk says:

      From my visit there today I felt like I’d walked through Troll City. And I was not fearful, or angry, just sad.

      There is a place that we all regress. Here we have a chance to advance and to learn. The difference is night and day.

  6. nicole473 says:

    Using a sock, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/users/profile/inspiredtoo to post it. Great idea for the new link, Adlib.

    • escribacat says:

      I am going to use my RapscallionWest sock on my other laptop. You guys are right — the trolls seem twice as vile today and the Obama-bashing is going at full speed from all sides. Is it the weather or what? It’s been snowing here for about 30 hours.

      • nicole473 says:

        oooooh……i love snow. I am eagerly awaiting our first snow of the winter here, but, alas, I will probably be waiting for another month or so.

      • FeloniousMonk says:

        Maybe they knew another Arianna gamechanger was coming. Seriously, the comments on the article there on the President’s visit to Dover were outrageous. Let alone the ongoing healthcare story or the Obama press secretary meets with Fox one. That’s about all I could handle.

        Did get my newest disposable sock up and safely used (I lost another this morning) Neither are the one you fanned me on.(DM) Am looking forward to slipping in this evening to spread the word.

        • nicole473 says:

          Yeah, those are the threads that really did it for me. They’re just horrible. The trolls on the Dover thread really got to me. This man will never do enough to make these creeps give him the tiniest bit of respect.

          I used a sock earlier today to post 5-6 links. (inspiredtoo, and I just posted another with my regular id.

          • FeloniousMonk says:

            Oh, so you double fanned me. Thank you. BTW, your regular id one got the usual Jordan327 reply. I used my Source of Enlightenment sock to quietly suggest he needs some civility.

    Just wanted to reiterate:

    • BigDogMom says:

      AdLib, I looks like there is a 3 hrs time difference from my location, EST….will you guys be getting together tomorrow night? Would like to join in if not too late….No Yanks Game

      Will not be going on Huff Po tomorrow, thank god I have new client, so I will be pretty busy during the day…

      Let me know, will check back later, thanks for the info

      • AdLib says:

        Hi BigDogMom!

        Yep, folks should be hanging out here who are on East Coast, West Coast, in Japan, France, Germany, so any time is fine.

        Don’t know when things will be getting into full swing or how many folks will be here but I think it should be fun whoever’s here.

  8. KevenSeven says:

    Let us know how that goes.

    • FeloniousMonk says:

      Question adlib,
      Do they monitor the I.P. you’re on at a given moment or the one where you signed up from?

      I can always go to the local hot spots if that’s an issue.

      • AdLib says:

        Trolls are banned and reappear all the time. Even Kev7 was banned multiple times but when he cleared his cookies, he was back with a new ID.

        ANyone ever heard of a single case of HuffPo banning an IP? I haven’t.

      • Grabamop says:

        I am going to a friends house and use her laptop to sign up and agitate at HP. I think they ban your IP you signed up from.

        • AdLib says:

          Hope I’m not sounding like a broken record but I’ve seen no evidence that they ban IPs there, as I said to Kevin, that would make you unable to provide clicks and web traffic to them and I think they’re too greedy to do that.

        • FeloniousMonk says:

          That could be very touchy in a shared computer environment. Of course, if it was not down to the adapter level then it would get touchy in a networked environment.

          Now the current one I’m trying to stay low on should have came in on the same IP as the old Monk account, so I’m not sure, and certainly the new one from this AM that disappeared did. So I’m not sure. I took networking classes far to long ago. Anyone remember Novell?

          • AdLib says:

            I do remember Novell!

            You’ve seen for yourself, your account was banned but your IP wasn’t or you wouldn’t have been able to set up new accounts.

            I don’t know that they do this, Kev thought that’s why he couldn’t create a new account but it turned out to be an issue with cookies.

            I’ve never heard of a member saying his IP was banned, every member I’ve ever seen banned who wanted to come back and create a new ID has been able to.

            • FeloniousMonk says:

              I took networking back when MS was still working on making Windows Server functional enough, since they didn’t have DNS capabilities yet. This was part of one of those retraining programs for distressed workers. Of course, everyone trains in “the next big thing” and ends up flooding the market again.

            • BigDogMom says:

              That should be first Mac’s ever made….

            • BigDogMom says:

              Heck you guys, I remember Decwritters, punch cards and the Mac’s…am I dating myself?

            • AdLib says:

              Remember all those programmers working on Y2K?

              And only a few planes fell out of the sky.

            • escribacat says:

              Last night there was a troll … probably beej … whose profile had been removed but he was still posting. This went on for quite awhile. Finally he disappeared but then it happened again with another sock.

            • PepeLepew says:

              OMG, that was bizarre. Nothing like a thread about gay rights to bring out the true crazies…

      • KevenSeven says:

        Who knows what evil techniques they employ?

        Assume the worst.

        • AdLib says:

          Well…even you were able to pop back after many bannings after you cleared your cookies, they didn’t ban your IP…because they want your clicks at the site!

          I’m using my regular IP, I’m not concerned.
