likely you have "automatic updates" selected, so your browser might have been updated and it changed the default behavior to a more secure one.

well, if you're using IE, you should be able to change the default behavior to allow scripted windows without the "nag bar".

let's see....

you will have to change the scripted window settings under

tools(on main menu bar)->interenet options(bottom of list that pops up)->security(second tab from left on top)->custom level (in the box that says: security level for this zone)

set the following to "enabled":

Allow websites to prompt for information using scripted windows

(it's towards the bottom of the list; scroll down all the way and then back up a few lines)

done.

np.

be careful if you frequently browse new sites, though, as you could get a scripted window running in the background without your knowledge.

If you trust the site, it's not an issue.

Whenever the word "new" appears in a comment it has the color red.
Started happening a day or so ago.

Test: new (without quotes)

EDIT: Well, I guess it's not every time ... I'll try to pin down the circumstances.

Is there a reason why PT arguments (http://antievolution.org/features/mtexp.php?form_author={author name}) links no longer connect with the actual comment, but just take you to the current PT homepage?

A few people this year have complained about my terrible moderation, either in threads or in PMs. While nothing bores me more than discussion of how oppressive and demented my decisions are, I heard a great line on Colbert that, if you have to criticise me, at least use humorous lines like this one Colbert made about Brian Williams:

"I wouldn't let him moderate a hobo fight."

I think you do a thankless job well.

I just wonder if it might be fairer to have some lesser sanction than a lifetime ban for errant posters, such as suspension for a period. Maybe even banned posters could be reinstated on appeal with an undertaking as to future behaviour.

I appreciate the number of bans here is minuscule, but it does allow offenders to play the martyr. One reason for raising this is I have been having a chat with Larry Fafarman here.

I am unable to make any links or post pictures because h t t p (no spaces, of course), gets changed to 'e' whenever I hit post (or preview).

For example, I am right now typing the address for Panda's Thumb:

Larry is not being honest with you about how he got banned from Brayton's blog. See here and here.

Larry is about two steps away from being one of those people who stands on traffic islands yelling about the mind-control device the CIA planted in his brain. That's why he's banned everywhere.

I wouldn't have a big problem with allowing Larry F a single "ghetto" thread here like GoP and zeroheroisreal (or whatever his number is) have.

People could then choose to interact with him or not.

Allowing LF back at PT would be pointless.  (Indeed, I'm surprised that "realpc" has been tolerated this long.  It's probably just the dearth of any other amusingly knuckleheaded crea-YEC-IDiots...)

Not that my opinion's likely to count for much one way or t'other.

There were several street preachers when I was at NCSU. Now that I'm around UNC, there are also street preachers. Some the same (Gary, who's kind of famous), and some are different. But the nuttiest guy I saw, was preaching to a Jeep. A parked Jeep. No people in it. A Jeep, parked on the side of the road. The guy was preaching to it. Aggressively.

As a result of the way things evolved over the past year and half or so, it is no longer possible for The Ghost of Paley to have productive discussions here, and he's moving on to other fora.

woo hoo!

I'd like to thank all those that put relentless pressure on the idiot after he "revealed" his loki trolldom.

Louis, this means you, especially.

Steve,

Well I'm not going to lie and say I am unhappy about this, but I AM disappointed (see previous comments on my optimism). I'm always disappointed when an unreconstructed, unrepentant troll is not converted to useful participation. However, that said since GoP was clearly and self admittedly ONLY here to troll and annoy, his removal is a good thing I support wholeheartedly....perhaps that's an understatement.

I would question two things and make one suggestion:

1) Given his proclivities was it ever possible for him to have any form of productive discussion here? I would strongly argue (with plenty of evidence) that it wasn't and has been obviously the case for many many months.

2) He's moving on to other fora? The mind reels, these future fora have my sympathy. I wonder if he will be a productive contributor there, he wasn't here and given the evidence I doubt he can be.

3) The Shadow of Paley account is also part of the supposed two person trolling regime, it should also go.

Louis

The page turnover bug appears to be worsening at Official Uncommonly Dense - most recently, two posts were made that should have forced a rollover from one page to the next that didn't happen for something like an hour.  I made a third to force the issue (which worked).

The solution to that would seem to be start a new thread and lock the old one (after making sure that all replies already posted on the old one have actually shown up).
