I wonder who the administrator was of the program. Wonder if it was a friend or family member of the prior super. Never heard of the program before then did a Google. Anytime I see totally free Government paid program I start to sniff the air...for rats.
Maybe the AH has held up the Facebook transition because the program itself is under scrutiny for not being able to adequately halt hate speech in its program. We will just have to wait and see what happens with Facebook's newest problem and go from there. In the meantime I have enjoyed reading most of the comments so far. The AH did say Wednesday but maybe they meant midnight tonight. Who knows.........
Excellent post, WeAreThey, and truer words could not have been put down into print for us to see. Retaliation takes many forms, how well I know, for I have been retaliated against for stands I took when I moved to this small town and rocked the boat so to speak. I saw so many things that the good ole boys were doing and felt someone had to speak up, so I did. I let the stares, finger pointing, and some nasty forms of retaliation roll off my back like water off a duck's back and survived. Yes, I see we can still log in the AM, and if it had not been possible I would have still been able to enjoy reading the comments and as you said, seperate the wheat from the chaff. Makes me wonder if the Herald maybe set a deadline to see how many would leave the forum and how many would stay...maybe they too wanted to seperate the wheat from the chaff...something to think about.
You asked: "Who in their right mind would want to get on one of these floating houses of horror at this point?" I have been wondering that myself. I just sit and shake my head, wondering. They still do the cruises tho. Spent the Memorial Day weekend with friends and all they talked about was their upcoming cruise. Maybe not now with the latest debacle!! To each his own tho. I went on 2 cruises in the past but left from ports not here in the US. They were nice, the ships were clean and well kept and everything was "smooth sailing" but I would never take a cruise again. I am all cruised out....once I had been on those 2 I knew it was enough.
True, and I am sure there is going to be a great deal of continued arguing about guns. There always is when the topic of guns comes up anywhere. I cannot see the Congress passing any law that will ever disallow a law-abiding citizen to own one. Even if it ever went to the Supreme Court I cannot see the Justices in favor of banning guns. The argument is not gun ownership, I thought, but certain guns. Isn't it the TYPE gun, not all guns?
True, MHjohnson....my granddaughter is coaching me thru my new Facebook account and showing me how one's identity is easily pilfered too. That is why I suggested the Herald have their programmer set up some sort of blocking system in here, where the person can be ignored, or better yet, like I believe the NYT or the Washington Post has, a system where you can collapse the offensive statements if enough readers do it. The Herald can also gag the offensive poster. Oh well, tomorrow will be an interesting day.
CARTMAN....your posts will be missed. Hate to see you go.
I will certainly miss your comments DRTexas. I have enjoyed them a great deal. I totally agree on the intrusiveness of social media and have recently gotten a FACEBOOK account but now need to be coached on how to use it, if I use it at all.
Well if I can't figure out how to get and use a Facebook account I can still read the comments. I read them on the WALB too but cannot comment. So will see your comments anyway.
I have watched the Ricky Gervais program THE OFFICE by getting the DVD's from Netflix. Tried to watch the American version and if you have ever seen the British series you will not waste your time watching the NBC version....well I wouldn't. Bored me to death and I knew right away it was a loser. Kind of like talk shows...once you have watched The Graham Norton Show on the BBC our talk shows are boringggggggggg. As far as Gervais goes, I agree he is a genius when it comes to writing hits. AN IDIOT ABROAD is one of the funniest series I have ever seen, and EXTRAS had me in stitches the whole time. Remember I am entitled to my opinion. I kind of like racing...I don't like NASCAR but do love Formula One racing..........varooooommmmmm
