    Hope that the tech staff is mapping out a way to get HTTPS by default and encryption by default as the technology becomes available.

    Absolutely.

    They’ll still be online regardless, you just may have to search for them. But we’re checking for you. Hope you and mr wd have a great time with his dad.

    Normally, I post Monday. Sometimes, I need to have someone else do my Monday post. If that somebody is NOT on the approved list, how much time does it take to get added? Can I give you the screen name Sunday evening or do you need it by Friday afternoon?

    Ah, now I understand. Of course more [...]

    I honestly think you will be quite pleased with the changes.

    Not sure what the question is, so “yes” to all. ;) Whatever problems you have we’ll work hard to fix.

    1) Does this mean that the author of a post has the power to delete followups (like our work at home spammer) or must that still go to Kit? I think you should be able to do most things yourself now. You’ll have a standard FDL back end. 2) Sometimes, we have irregular posters covering Over [...]

    We think the archives should still be attached to the new account, but we’re checking. It’s a good question.

    Brian says to back it up just in case, but he thinks you should be okay.

    I’m looking over the last few days of diaries and I don’t see anyone who would be affected. If they don’t read this post they probably won’t even know there has been a change, other than to see some more tools on the back end.

    I’ll check but I’m pretty sure your name is on the list. We went pretty deep. I’d be surprised if there is anyone who has been posting regularly who doesn’t find themselves on the list, provided what they post are real diaries (as opposed to just one sentence, or SPAM.)

    My FDL won’t look substantially different on the page than it does now, on the back end it will just look a bit more like the other parts of FDL. If anyone has a problem they can email us at editor AT firedoglake DOT com, and that will be on the documentation. And yes, we [...]

    ThumbnailWhen we first opened MyFDL several years ago there was no existing software that allowed us to do what we wanted to do — open up a blog where the entire FDL community could post. So at that time we had to do a lot of adaptation to the WordPress system we run on in order [...]

  • Oh do I. Laura Bush 2001 sounds just like John Kerry 2014.

    Here we go again…except this time most of the people who opposed Bush’s excursion into Iraq either support it or are staying mum.

    If that meant the people who supported Bush’s war now opposed it that would be one thing, but they pretty much support it too.

    So basically, instead of stopping wars in the Middle East, Obama normalized them and snuffed out the liberal opposition.

    But what’s worse I think is they’ll come back twenty years later and make a movie about how killing your people made their soldiers feel sad.

    Thanks for that. No names, please ;) Maybe I’m misinterpreting it, but I didn’t take it as a slam on soldiers, rather on a country that is blind to the suffering [...]

    Thanks for this, Scott. As a DC resident I’m totally with you.

    We don’t matter.

    Because there is no consequence for going against the will of the public. Nobody goes to jail, everybody gets reelected.

  • I think I’ve figured this one out. They keep talking about “milestones”. Isn’t Iraq on the metric system????

    That must be it!
