Hello there, a very, very, very warm welcome.
You might just possibly have guessed, this is a site that supports President Obama. :cool:
If you’re not a supporter of President Obama, move along, there are plenty of other places for you to play
There aren’t many, apart from the fairly obvious one: PBO-opposing trolls intent on polluting the place with their drivel are not welcome here.
Other than that: be civil, don’t personally attack anyone here and don’t link to right wing nutjob hate sites – keep breaking those rules and, sorry, you’ll be blocked.
Also, if you’re quoting from articles and posts from other sites in the comments, just include a short extract and a link to the site. Don’t copy and paste most or all of the article/post – it’s not fair to quote most/all of it because then there’s no need to visit the site of the author.
Finally, bigotry – directed towards any class, creed, color, sexual orientation, nationality, etc, etc – is never allowed here, it’s a ‘librul’ kinda place.
WordPress introduced the reblogging feature a while back with the intention of making it easier for genuine bloggers to share the occasional post they like.
Predictably, the feature was abused from day one by scam artists who do almost nothing but reblog in an attempt to increase their traffic.
This place and some friends’ blogs have been targeted by one particular abusive moron – we’re talking severely stupid here – who has weirdly creepy issues with women, so for that reason whenever he attempts to reblog anything from here, the post will be ‘adjusted’ in a way to make the reblog pointless (but it will be unchanged here).
Apologies to genuine bloggers when this happens. If you too are being targeted by scam rebloggers and would like to stop them, get in touch and I’ll let you know how to do it.
Genuine bloggers are more than welcome to use anything they ever see at this blog. Thanks!
How do I comment here?
You need to sign in first – you can use your Twitter, Facebook or WordPress accounts, or an email address (which won’t be visible to anyone but me).
Comments by first-time visitors will be held in ‘pending’ until it’s clear whether they’re here to share their profound thoughts on ‘burt sirts’ and ‘Muslins’, or if they’re smart, sensible, pleasant and maybe even charming.
The quickest way to join the chat is to sign in with a non-private and longstanding Twitter or Facebook account.
Comments from first-time visitors never appear unless they sign in in this way.
If you’re a troll, you’ll be added to the blocked list at the site and your comments will never appear, they’ll just go straight in to the trash so I won’t even see them. So, be good to yourself, save your energy ;-)
Make sure you stick with your chosen username and the same Twitter/Facebook/Wordpress account (or email address) each time you sign in, otherwise the blog automatically detects you as a new visitor and you’ll end up in pending.
You’ll see the sign-in options under the ‘Leave a reply’ box at the end of the comments under each post:
That’s it. Thank you for dropping in!
