Problems Commenting

by Keith Koffler on August 15, 2013, 1:06 pm

Dear Readers,

Some of you have had trouble commenting. There seems to be a problem with the spam filter, which is picking up legitimate comments. I’m doing my best to go through the filter as often as possible and release legitimate comments, but it does collect hundreds of actual spam items a day.

I apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your patience. I’m hopeful whatever bug is messing with the works will be corrected soon. If not, I will look into switching to a new system, though the one I have is supposed to be the gold standard . . .

Keith

Doesn’t matter what system you’re on Keith. With your coverage of Obama I’m pretty sure the NSA is going to make sure you have plenty of little “glitches” here and there.

Langley Spook August 15, 2013 at 2:15 pm

…NSA, DHS, DOJ/FBI…

Stephen Hall August 16, 2013 at 6:21 am

And don’t forget the freakin IRS! We are in the New World and here we go again, giving our money away to the enemy!

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 1:14 pm

Thanks for your efforts Keith.
Sometimes they are out of sequence.
Sometimes they never appear.
We are patient people and love the site.
Keep up the good work.
You are a Great American !

Thanks for checking it out.
If you are going to change, Disqus is good and has an edit feature, a like/dislike tool, and seems to be almost everywhere now.

It’s frustrating to discover after something is posted that the spelling is off, the commas are everywhere or nowhere, and you forgot to add that most important word.

Aileen August 15, 2013 at 1:22 pm

I just don’t trust Disquis….NSA paranoia? Maybe.
Keith, thank you for acknowledging and addressing the problem.

Star August 15, 2013 at 1:26 pm

Disqus keeps all your comments from all sites–creepy. I do use it. The ones where you can sign up thru Facebook only–they lose me bec I am not on FB. How about LiveWyre–I have used it, know nothing about it and it crfeepy potential.

Marcus August 15, 2013 at 3:53 pm

I absolutely don’t trust Discus. They collect all messages, store them and who knows what they do with them. Discus (and whomever they associate with) can simply call up your email address and immediately see where you’ve been and what you’ve been commenting about. It’s none of their business, but they do it.

Keith:

Perhaps it was ill-advised to select the NAACP-DCCC-ACLU-OFA Gold Standard filter?

Keith Koffler August 15, 2013 at 2:11 pm

I should have known.

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 2:29 pm

Keith, try Akismet.
It has blocked 146 grand plus spam on another conservative website.

Star August 15, 2013 at 1:24 pm

At least you nailed that Erika whose second cousin once removed makes $50 million a minute on the internet. I do hate to think my buds are not getting on.

Otis Driftwood August 15, 2013 at 1:25 pm

dang Star she’s gone?? and I was going to sign up today! ;-)

Star August 15, 2013 at 1:28 pm

Haven’t schoolmarmed her in I think two days. That side business sure sounded good, didn’t it?

Lizzy August 15, 2013 at 3:41 pm

Another missed opportunity like a shovel ready job darn!

Otis Driftwood August 15, 2013 at 1:27 pm

Tks for the update Keith. Isn’t the internet fun?? :-) But glad to know it’s the spam filter vice going into the black hole of space.

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 1:38 pm

Keith, Call my “girl” Shirley at NSA. She’ll make sure there is a NSA approved fix and we can get in and out with nary a hint.

Girly1 August 15, 2013 at 1:43 pm

Helpful hint: Copy your post before pressing Submit button. If your comment doesn’t appear, you can then re-post it as many times as necessary. Sometimes I have to try this 2-3x before it actually appears.

Mandy Manners August 15, 2013 at 1:54 pm

Slap it around and show it who’s boss!

Aileen August 15, 2013 at 2:05 pm

Mandy…sometimes you make me laugh and shake my head at the same time….
Wonder who/what you are like in real life!

Mandy Manners August 15, 2013 at 2:29 pm

Thanks, Aileen! I’m pretty much the same as I am here.

Julie Brueckheimer August 15, 2013 at 4:07 pm

ROTFLMAO. (If you’ll permit me to use that expression.) My mother-in-law used to do that to her TV.

ImNoDhimmi August 15, 2013 at 4:18 pm

I just yell at mine.

Langley Spook August 15, 2013 at 2:14 pm

I guess its now ‘Official’ that We who post comments on “WhiteHouseDossier” are now on the mentioned/followed on the “Obama, NSA, DHS, DOJ” watchlists…

aunty M August 15, 2013 at 2:22 pm

One can only hope, Langley Spook!

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 2:35 pm

Especially me.

Star August 15, 2013 at 2:40 pm

I am prob headed for re-ed. Is it like Camp David. Does anyone know?

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 2:52 pm

Hard to say.
Resistance is futile.

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 2:59 pm

I think there are a lot of loud speakers, courtesy of MSNBC, throughout the work areas 24/7. Also a lot of the minders wear scary masks.

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 3:00 pm

I want to know about the uniforms. Will they be designer duds?

Star August 15, 2013 at 3:10 pm

How about those scary drugs like on BURN NOTICE?

Langley Spook August 15, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Sad to say I have missed the last 4 seasons of “Burn Notice”…

Star August 15, 2013 at 3:50 pm

In this the last season it is pretty feral.

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 3:43 pm

If Fiona comes with us all will be good!

Star August 15, 2013 at 3:51 pm

I agree. Feel better already. And Bruce Campbell–he can park his slippers under my bed any day. TMI?

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Oh dear, the stuff of camp cat fights?

Star August 15, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Do you like Bruce, too?

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 3:15 pm

The conservative community are notorious for not being LOUD.
However, we are intelligent.
Loud people generally run out of breath, and that is what we are beginning to see thanks to the incompetence of our commander in chief.
His fingerprints are being restricted from being on anything, although, enough of the American People are awakening to the fact that this man is incapable of leading the Country.
Time will tell,…it always does.

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 3:20 pm

Your guess is as good as mine grace.
I still have mine.
I got out in ’73.

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 3:44 pm

I could be wrong but I don’t think your uniform will be approved apparel where we are going. Also there will be no distinction of rank. We are all the same — maybe littl

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 3:46 pm

little Mao outfits. Unlikely. Too cumbersome for the kind of socialist heavy lifting we will be doing.

Susan August 15, 2013 at 3:18 pm

Today Rush was talking to a caller about Missouri requiring all rodeo clowns to attend “sensitivity training”. I’d say those re-education camps are already here. They just aren’t incarcerating us yet.

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 3:23 pm

I heard that to Susan.
Here is when the Governor of Missouri should slap Obama back into reality.

Danceswithtruth August 15, 2013 at 3:34 pm

Unfortunately the governor of Missouri is a Democrat also. Not so bad on some things, not so good on others. Jay Nixon won’t be slappin’ Obama anytime soon, that’s for sure.

Bob Baldwin August 15, 2013 at 3:28 pm

Star : Don’t be Bad Mouthing ” BURN NOTICE ” or we will have to pay you a VISIT /

THANKS
” SAM”

Star August 16, 2013 at 11:33 am

You don’t think Mike is getting a Tasmanian devil look on his face?

mo1 August 15, 2013 at 6:30 pm

You’re OK if you want to read 50 Shades of Gray, but in trouble if you want to read the Bible.

Lizzy August 15, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Yippie:-)

Marcus August 15, 2013 at 4:00 pm

Or the “Need More Information” category. I hate it when that happens.

rawheadrex August 15, 2013 at 3:16 pm

How can we be certain you were not playing “Spades” with the inner circle in the WH dining room when the comments became more critical. Or maybe your vision was obscured by a slightly used Obama mask, the one that hasd”See you at the Missouri State Fair” on the back of its head.

DeniseVB August 15, 2013 at 3:24 pm

NOW the girls are with Mom and Dad ….. as seen on twitter…

Major Garrett ‏@MajorCBS 4mins ago
Per WH, Sasha and Malia have arrived on Martha’s Vineyard for remainder of summer vacation w/POTUS and FLOTUS.

AFVet August 15, 2013 at 3:28 pm

I really feel sorry for those girls.

Julie Brueckheimer August 15, 2013 at 3:44 pm

It must not be easy having TWO narcissists for parents.

Marcus August 15, 2013 at 3:58 pm

They seem like perfectly fine kids, but what a bizarre life they must have to lead.

Otis Driftwood August 15, 2013 at 4:40 pm

answers my question from yesterday… tks :-) So now BO will golf all day.. then queue up the ice cream trip.. book store trip. Has to be one photo op with the kids somewhere

Julie Brueckheimer August 15, 2013 at 3:43 pm

That’s good to know. I thought maybe Google was out to get me.

Marcus August 15, 2013 at 3:57 pm

About 10-15% of my messages here don’t get through. I figured I was being moderated by you, Keith. No question NSA, etc., are looking at the site, but usually they don’t “steal” the comments. I have seen a drone or two flying low over my house lately, LOL.

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 3:59 pm

Star August 15, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Do you like Bruce, too?
************

Yes, but I am short and a coward. So, you win.

I will do well at camp. :)

Star August 15, 2013 at 4:13 pm

I am admiring from afar these days. As for re-ed camp, I don’t think they could ever convince me at this stage without the scary mind control drugs.

gracepmc August 15, 2013 at 4:17 pm

You think this will be a matter of choice?

ImNoDhimmi August 15, 2013 at 4:22 pm

Glad the mystery of the disappearing posts has been solved!
If WHD needs a new system, it would be great to have one with an edit function and a like / dislike comment button.

Rod August 15, 2013 at 6:31 pm

I just figured you didn’t care for my brand of sarcasm ;>

Star August 16, 2013 at 11:34 am

Are you joking–we speak fluent sarcasm.
