computer-repairHey everyone! My huge apologies about today, it has been 13 hours of BS but the site is back up and restored to where it was this morning.

In the meantime, we had some fun while the old version was up, I’ve copied and pasted the exchanges below to the last time I had a window refreshed from the thread we were using. Feel free to copy and repost any comments you made on a current thread. Here it is:

Okay folks, taking a rest for a bit but will be back shortly…it’s been a long day!

The site should be restored in an hour or so to where it was this morning…but we shall see what we shall see.

Just such a relief and pleasure to see all of you back here after finding the front door locked all day.

Big thanks to all of you fantastic people!

First trivia question of the night.

Who sang this :

Last night I had, the strangest dream,
I ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

I dreamed I saw a mighty room
The room was filled with men
And the papers they were signing said
They’d never fight again.

Hiya AuntieC!
Welcome to the party!

On a side note, back in the day, two weeks ago, when I frequented HP, I always read your posts and loved them.
But here’s how stupid I am.
I never understood your name until yesterday!
DOH

So…..

They were talking today about yesterday’s shooter and saying that he was being effed with about his religion and ethnic heritage.

How did we get so self-absorbed as a country that we didn’t think that this would be a natural consequence of having to answer for nearly a decade for the actions of a person who, by pure coincidence, shared a vaguely similar background?

Why is HE the one we are looking at as the problem, and not the ignoramuses who probably helped push him over that edge?

Meanwhile, there have been cases of fragging by Christians in the army that the military is covering up.

And just today:

Police: Fla. gunman thought company nixed benefit

ORLANDO, Fla. – Police say a former employee accused of fatally shooting one person and wounding five others at an Orlando, Fla., engineering firm thought it had blocked his efforts to obtain unemployment benefits.

Police say Jason Rodriguez told detectives after Friday’s shooting that his bosses at Reynolds, Smith and Hills had fired him two years ago for no good reason.

He recently worked at a Subway sandwich shop but told detectives he quit because he couldn’t get enough hours. He said he filed for unemployment but an expected check didn’t come and he blamed Reynolds, Smith and Hills.

Police say Rodriguez walked into the firm, pulled a gun and fatally shot an employee. He then opened fire on others, wounding them. He surrendered a short time later at his mother’s house.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_orlando_office_shooting

I don’t think someone named Rodriguez is Muslim.

FYI, I posted today at a poster I didn’t know, who couldn’t wait to tell everyone that the shooter had previously given out Korans. (damn, how sweet to post correctly spelled words).

I suggested perhaps his comment was fire fanning, or even an attempt at attention getting.

It does not matter if the shooter handed out King James bibles, or the Koran previously.

Damn fire fanners suck.

deygirl, this story was on “think Progress this morning:

You know that there will be a call for “those people” should be rounded up and either questioned or put in interment camps.
They was a winger today that said the Dr., who did the shooting, was a Obama adviser. (can’t locate the site right now)

While we’re in chat mode and no topic –
Hey, is Monk still here?

Were you a project engineer, or some other type of engineer or a designer?

We worked for Garrett, do you remember that name?
Then it became Allied, then it became Allied-Signal and now it’s Honeywell.

I was a designer, but a CAD operator, and started off on auto-Cad, then went to Computer Vision, and then Cadam and then CATIA.
I used to make models using stereo-lithography.
We did mainly APUs, but also valves, air-flaps, and air circulation in aircraft.
We did win gubbmit contracts and for a time we did submarine work, but that was canceled sadly.
Worked on the Boeing 777 back in the day.

I agree. We cannot ban trolls. We can ignore them.

This is the place here speech actually does run free, but that comes at a price. We need to tolerate the buttheads.

That does not mean that we have a duty to engage the little cretins.

Right you are! I would prefer if we gave folks every opportunity to knock off the troll behavior and when it becomes clear that they aren’t willing to have a constructive discussion, they will not be banned but moderated so that when they do make a comment about issues instead of attacks, they can still freely express their POVs.

But unlike HuffPo, hatred, hostility and belligerence will not be allowed to pollute The Planet.

I absolutely agree. Thanks to figuring this out with my fellow founders of The Planet, what we do is simply moderate those who won’t abide by the rules of this society, filtering out the hatred, personal attacks and disruptions of threads and the site and still allowing them to post their POV on issues.

We can and probably will have to ban the real vicious trolls but the ones who just seek to commandeer threads will get “Time Out”s in moderation until they can discipline themselves to act with decency.

Hello Lady Dey. I believe it only took about a half a nanosecond. I left a comment on Huff about how I know several people of Arab descent, assuming at the time he was, who are Christians. Didn’t get printed of course. People can be so lame.

It’s simple, Christians never hate or kill…I mean, if you even accused some of the extremist Christians of that, who knows what they’d do to you?

Hey Dey!!!
Love that Smothers Brothers Show.
Was on right after Laugh In, or am I showing my age?
Another favorite part of the Smothers Brothers was the Frank and Jesse James skits.

OMG.
And the Sonny and Cher Show.
And when they’d do that song in fat suits and eating.
What was the song they always sang?

I got sent to bed before Sonny and Cher, I think.

Used to save loose teeth for late at night and buy myself some Hogan’s Heroes time. At the end of the show, my dad would present the old needle-nosed pliers and I’d yank those babies in a panicked heartbeat.

I must admit I do love to slay trolls on HuffP0, it’s in my Irish genes to make with the jokes, but it is ultimately self defeating, since they appreciate the attention and crave more and more. Which is just one reason I was so happy to find out about this site.

P.S. — I’ve sussed out the faq and haven’t come across any info detailing how to add an avatar. Although I make my living on the computer and used to do web design back the the Middle Ages for Pope Pius VII (”Pi” to his friends), I’m at a loss on how to do it and would appreciate a little hand holding.

It’s there but I think I should retitle it. Here’s the section:

How do I set up an image to appear with my username?

This site uses Gravatars, which are avatars\images you assign through Gravatar’s website to your email address. All websites that support Gravatars will display the same image for you.

To select an image for yourself, go to http://en.gravatar.com/site/signup and register the same email address you used here when you signed up. After responding to a confirmation email from Gravatar, you can select an image from your computer or the internet to assign to your email address and that image will appear here with your user name (and on any other Gravatar-friendly sites you visit).

My husband was the head of the computer department at work and we struggle with the attaching the image thing.
I think I know what we did wrong though, so will try it again some day.
He’s highly impressed with this site, as am I, and I do love it here, too.
I love that we all talk so much!
I just love reading people’s stories or anecdotes, and there are no worries about scrubbing or pending.
I feel as though I am on the cutting-edge of something BIG and AdLib, if you need help financially, you shouldn’t be ashamed to ask!
I mean, we can’t donate a lot, but every little bit helps, right?

May I make a suggestion regarding our new troll friend?

When still posting on Huff, a group of us decided to completely ignore the trolls and to never post a direct reply to any of them. If one of them said something stupid or outrageous we talked to another poster about it instead. The trolls went crazy, no matter how many times they replied to us with obnoxious slurs, we didn’t engage them directly, after a time they gave up and some even disappeared.

I think that we should try this with our very own first troll too and see how long he can last here.

Only one request, I’m still a bit mad about your early morning here and his name calling for what it was worth, stuck in my throat. I need to go back to the Teabagger thread he was on to clear my throat so to speak and then I’ll settle down and try to be a good girl. Ok?

If we want to find Repubs who are interested in joining our community, we can’t give in to the troll game of returning the hostility and crudeness.

Whatever thoughtful and mature Repubs are out there will find it easy to join the site if we retain the moral high ground with trolls and not stoop to their level.

This site is run for the community here so everyone can have confidence that those who stray over here to continue the BS from HuffPo will not be doing so for long.

Again, we don’t want to ban anyone but those who can’t control themselves from sabotaging conversations or hurling insults, won’t have those posts appearing on the site. They will be welcome to continue to have their opinions on the issues at hand posted though.

When you interact with trolls you almost cannot help but have their troll tactics rub off on you. I know I would fall into the trap for sure. So the best thing to do is to not feed them.

Sounds good!

You know, I do understand your frustration, as I used to be like that years ago when Yahoo had message boards attached to their articles.
I finally discovered that it just isn’t worth getting upset or angry over, because honestly, you can never have the last word or win with a troll.
In reality, you have already won, but the troll will never admit it and it’ll just keep posting to get under your skin.
That’s what trolls do.

Didn’t see the exchange this morning but I’m very proud of how the community here went way over the call of duty to try and respectfully convince him to have an adult discussion with us instead of repetitively complaining about how he knew, in such a sweeping generalization (not to mention his hypocrisy in condemning everyone at the site of generalizing), that he personally knew that everyone who used the same term was doing so to intentionally insult him.

And if he’s reading this, there’s a difference between an insult and a substantiated analysis of one’s behavior.

After our experiences at HuffPo I want to go the extra mile not to have to moderate anyone’s comments. Now I feel I have, I gave him a final request to stop after many, many requests.

He will not respect members here or my requests so, since he will not voluntarily do as everyone else here does, we will give him an assist through moderation until he gets the hang of it.

It’s non-arguments were circular and a waste of time.
It wasn’t going to listen, or read, because that was not it’s purpose in coming here.
It came here to disrupt and make it all about it.
That’s why I posted that link to the teabagger rally with the teabaggers carrying signs comparing health care reform to the Holocaust.
The best thing to do is ignore it and that is the biggest slap to it and it will grow bored and leave.

I think that you have no other choice if we want to keep our community healthy and active. As you well know, I left Huffy because of the trolls and their vile comments staying up while mine went to pending and were never seen again. I can certainly do without people like Will T here causing a disturbance just for the hell of it. He came to the wrong place.

Kalima, the exact same thing is what started my mini boycotts of HuffPo. I would catch certain posts before they were scrubbed, and they were always thoughtful, persuasive, and civil. And *poof* at the next refresh they were gone. While insulting screed, including the n word and other racial slurs, were sitting on the pages for hours.

I posted about it on facebook, and got a few other people to join with me.

It looks like we are in the same corner as many of the old regulars on Huffy and like many I saw no reason to return to the inferno. The time difference also made it a waste of time to hang around to see if my simple “Hi, how are you?” greeting to another poster ever surfaced, I had had enough by then.

I joined FaceBook about a month ago to watch a video a friend of mine had posted there, I have all of two fans and one of them is one of our staff, I don’t have the time to get too involved there.

I don’t know if I want to go there, but, is the troll thread from this morning still in existence? I wasn’t there, so I missed the whole exchange.
I do agree that ignoring them is probably the best tactic. They’re like those town hall people, though, in that they’re very good at being disruptive.

LOL, I ask myself why we are are always either 13 or 14 hours ahead of EST and 16 or 17 hours ahead of PST.

I had a friend who was on EST who used to email me and ask what sort of a day she could expect to have, cracked me up every time.

Has anyone ever read a right wing site, such as Alex Jones?

Oh my goodness, them people are crazy nuts.
They think the H1N1 vaccine is some master plan by the wealthy to eliminate the poor and sick.
The one day that I visited there were people talking about forming local militias, and the question to ask to find out if your neighbor was a liberal was to ask if they were going to get the H1N1 vaccine!

Crazy conspiracies, and yet I seem to recall the right accusing the “liberals” of being conspiracy nuts not too long ago.

I used to go on the Ace of Spades.

They hated me, of course.
After a very unpleasant experience there one day, I haven’t, and will not blog there again.
To put it bluntly….Those people are absolutely fucking crazy.

Cheers Javaz! Dylan it is, and being frugal rules! We are “between jobs” ourselves, and learning to enjoy some of the more simple things of life. Game nights w/ friends; other nights w/ the blue ray couple, watching Flight of the Conchords; making music instead of paying to go to concerts, etc. The blue ray couple reminds me of being young, and on Sundays going across the street to the Kings, who were the only ones on the block with a TV set.

I read your post on toothpaste – never tried it, but I might!

I’ll be in and out; some plans early on w/ friends. Back home to check in and see what all took place later! Have fun.

Thanks, my friend! The ISP kept pointing back at the website for causing the problem but finally explained that it was their hardware.

I have been tweaking the site for the last 2 weeks to resolve the issues but couln’t find anything causing the problem.

As I said below, it’s so cool to see everyone streaming back so quickly, very affirming of everything were trying to do here to build a community.

No, they were just lazy. It’s always easiest to just blame the client than to do the work at first to verify if they were not responsible.

And thank you for calling them! Very grateful for you and other members doing so! This isn’t a 24 hour gig for me, have to work too, so it’s a huge relief to know that my friends and colleagues here are rightfully treating this as their site too!

I’ve heard that before. My qwest service (phone/TV/Internet) went down a couple of months ago and once we got through to them via an alternate method (cell phone) they claimed it was an issue at my house and they would come to my house the next day to look at it. I debug stuff like avionics for a living, and knew it was bogus. The distribution for my entire neighborhood was down (we get our feed via fibre optics) and it took them hours the next day with a number of people to fix it.

I really hate service providers (or employers) who lie to you and then think you should have believed them when you knew better.

A lot of us were over there today since the server was down. Now I can have a life not on line but being here is too much fun.

Thanks for the fanning on the new sock. I think everyone here who knows it appreciates the irony in the name. I was exorcising demons with it today. I should be mellow tonight.

Recession silver lining: rediscovering the joys of spending evenings at home.

Do I remember correctly that your family is into frugality? That would be a great topic to have a discussion on one of these days.

Oh gee, we are the king and queen of frugal.
Re-using paper towels till they fall apart, turning bottles upside down until the last drop, cutting toothpaste in half and scraping them out, and well, we both grew up with parents that survived the Great Depression.
We both came from lower income families, so our parents instilled a lot of things in us, like not wasting anything.

I had similar parents and I’m very frugal as well — though I never thought of cutting the toothpaste tube!

I think this would be a great topic for discussion…and very pertinent for the mortgage crisis — ie, how many of these folks bought five times more house than they needed?

You should write it!
It would be an excellent piece.
When I was younger, living alone, laid off, I lived with one chair, a small black and white TV, a clock radio, and mattress on the floor.
I didn’t mind it at all, and never thought I was doing without, but seems lots of people today can’t live without cable, or cell phones, or DSL lines.
Simpler is better.
Less worries.

Anyone a Bob Dylan fan?
And if so, anyone going to buy the Bob Dylan Christmas CD?
My husband is a huge Dylan fan, so we bought it, and all proceeds go to feeding the hungry in the USA.
I must say that it is certainly an experience listening to that voice singing traditional carols!

We no longer go to concerts, so we check concert DVDs out of the library or borrow them from friends.
We have quite the collection and the Jethro Tull is exceptional.

I’m a huge Dylan fan. I love the Xmas album. It’s got my fave girl group The Ditty Bops on background vocals (don’t know who the boy singers are), David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, and it has a Perry Como-Bing Crosby 50’s loungy vibe. Plus it’s funny as heck. What do you and the hubby think of it?

We think it’s funny, too, but between albums and CDs, I think we own every single thing the man produced.
So, it adds to our collection.
Did you read his book?

Did you happen to read Clapton’s book?

I like his memoirs very much. Reminded me quite a bit of Steinbeck, which surprised me. Have to admit I have literally hundreds of his concerts on cd and vinyl! You could say I’m somewhat obsessed with Uncle Bobby.

Damn, first have to put $200 groceries away, make dinner for the kids, try to alleviate re-damaged herniated disks (cases of seltzer lifting)…man I could use one of those beers being offered with a chilled mug.

I will be back pronto. Grilling marinated portabellas.

Save me a seat, please.

As far as I’m concerned, the Music and Issue threads can go up as soon as the site’s fully restored. I liked what someone suggested last night about a thread for movie dialog or movie trivia challenges.

Folks should just post their question and the first right answer posted is the winner! We can then total up who has the most right answers and crown them Best on the Planet!

Sending good vibes from Old Edo and hope we can all meet again soon.

Hang on everyone, we will be back!!

Hi Kalima!
I was here this morning and thought he was having a major meltdown about all the teabagger headers.
I wondered if it was a coincidence that it crashed at that particular time.
He did come in here with barrels loaded and was not a happy troll this morning.

I saw that! He gets offended at name calling, so what does he do? He answers with name calling! Only with him, it’s aimed at someone he’s trying to talk to (supposedly) — not some anonymous person out there in the public sphere, making themselves a legitimate target. Talk about hypocrisy!!!

Nellie, you took the words right out of my head. I was going to say that I would never meet these crazy people protesting like 5 year olds but that he had come to a Progressive blog to attack us personally and this was the big difference.

It still sticks in my throat that he thinks he got the last word, I will repair that soon and then ignore the teabagging twit should he show his ignorance here again. Well I’ll try at least.

That’s what I had decided to do, too, Kalima. I get tired of being asked endless questions when he is unwilling to commit himself to any stance on anything. He asks for proof about every statement, but never bothers to offer his own evidence that the statement is wrong.

It’s the fine-tuned right wing evade and annoy technique for tanking any intelligent discussion. Ignoring it is the only way to keep things on track. And stay sane!

I agree nelli, let’s stay sane, there are enough nutters in the world and ignoring the trolls on Huffy worked like a charm. Let’s ignore him completely everyone and see how long he lasts.

Oh he was ready for a fight alright. Did you see the questions I asked him about his defense of the teabaggers and if he thought their behaviour was normal, he hasn’t responded to one question here and that IS typical troll behaviour.

I had a reply for his name calling, it’s still in my head and this Bull won’t rest until I send the troll my thoughts about it.

I cannot imagine the work involved with this endeavor.
I’m so relieved that we are back on Planet POV, because I was having horrible withdrawal symptoms and even fell off the HUFFPO wagon and was forced to read that right wing rag.
YAE!

That’s OK.
*They* want you to be paranoid…

I know it.
I think they have the virtual FEMA camps set up for all of our avatars!
I’ve got my tinfoil hat on though, so I should be okay.

The timing was lousy but rest assured, this was just a computer hardware issue with the ISP, no conspiracy here but sure fun to imagine we’re that much of a threat to Huffy!

Thanks for the update, AdLib! I had tried several times earlier today, and had wondered what had happened.

Patience is a virtue, right? Although I for one am anxious to see everyone again!

As am I! Once the site is fully restored, I’ll send out an email blast to all members to let them know all is well and HuffNo Friday is on tonight!

    I’m just glad I can sign on again. For two days, I was locked out. Sheesh….missed you guys! 😉

    • escribacat says:

      That’s weird. I was having response time problems but it was much better yesterday.

      • FeloniousMonk says:

        But it’s a little slower today, on some parts of things, like getting the final bits to finish an update.

        How’s it going my friend?

        • escribacat says:

          Hey Monk, Mine’s a bit slow today too. I’m kind of burnt out from hanging online too much yesterday during the endless yakking. Kept running off to do things and coming back to more yakking!

          I can’t believe we have to go through that three more times!

          • FeloniousMonk says:

            I had other things to do and didn’t feel like putting up with the noise. This AM I went over and harassed a few of our favorite Trolls. PUMA Ann is in fine form this morning. SHe ADMIRES Boehner. JMFC!

        • AdLib says:

          Hey Felonious!

          I think I know what may be contributing to that and hope to have that addressed shortly.
