Skip to comments.Some of My Blog Pages Are Disappearing
Posted on 01/05/2013 3:52:44 PM PST by butterdezillion
Two pages from my blog are missing from the web and can't be found when searched on http:www.archive.org either
One is my documents showing KS SOS Kris Kobach's request for a verification and Onaka's response, at http://butterdezillion.wordpress.com/2012/09/
The other is my documents showing AZ SOS Ken Bennett's request for a verification and Onaka's response, at http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/bennett-request-and-response.pdf
These are part of a critical legal discussion going on now regarding Onaka's failure to verify any birth facts for Obama, even though Hawaii statute requires them to verify any information submitted for verification by a qualified requestor.
I have no idea who has removed these from the web, nor how many other pages they have removed.
How would I go about finding out what is going on here? Anybody who can help, please do!
The Waybackmachine (to check if these pages are archived): http:www.archive.org

Bennett's request: http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/bennett-request-and-response.pdf
OK, I guess they weren’t clickable. Here they are again:

Welcome to Sorosworld. Some of us have been here for years.
I think mayb
I lost my sunglasses once. And a jacket.
It’s the langoliers again........be very careful
That’s blogs for ya.
Wordpress is free and you got what you paid for.
Just curious.... You don’t have back up disc of important items?
I thought you said your blog pages are disappointing...
I’ve got stuff saved in various places but it’s a pain in the rear to try to find them.
Wordpress is what I can afford. Do they routinely take content off the web without telling people about it?
Oh, I’ve definitely got battle-scars from Sorosworld already. I’d like somebody to answer for why these pages are gone though.
Oh, the humanity!!!
Based on the URL in your original post, you have a pretense for using spaces in your addresses. If your host switched to a .NET or IIS6 engine, instead of automatically converting the space to an ampersand character (%20), it just sends back a bad request error.
Hell if I know.
Point is.. blogs are crap.
Did you post it (whatever you lost) in full here at FR?
If so, it wouldn't be lost.
Matt Mullenweg, Wordpress founder, Obama supporter.
Leo Donofrio had stuff go missing from his blog at wordpress.
As I recall, it all came back. He was definitely miffed about it.
So, Mullenweg is an Obama supporter. Imagine that! So was the CEO of Justia.com, who erased all the referrals to Minor v. Happersat (1974) from that online site starting in 2007.
To me, they’re both criminals aiding and abetting a criminal regime.
To get the URL I just right-clicked on the links on my blog and copied the URL’s from them. Do you think all the extra mumbo-jumbo in the one link could be from something not getting converted right? If so, how could I type it in to get the correct URL?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Blogs are all some of us can afford. And God knows that the “legitimate” news sources weren’t going to post anything irrelevant like the legal requests and responses which show that Obama’s HI BC is non-valid.... That’s just way too piddly for the “legitimate” news reporters to even touch.
I always do post here as much from my blog as I am able to post, but I can’t post PDF’s which is the only way I know to get decent formatting for my in-depth content.
Sometimes posting here as opposed to my blog is problematic, though, as I found out this past week. I posted content from my blog here so that people would not have to go to my blog. I put the word “REDACTED” between the arrow signs to show info that I redacted, and the HTML here took out the arrow signs and everything between them. So the content here didn’t show the redactions. Somebody copied what was here and sent it to Al Hendershot who published it but without any of the context that would have been present if somebody had gotten it directly from my blog. As a result Hendershot posted it as if it was unsubstantiated (and undocumented) rumor, and even a dear friend with whom I have worked - Mark Gillar - publicly said it was bunk, because it was unsubstantiated. This is why sourcing materials is so important. It provides context. And that is why just posting here is NOT always the best thing to do - as I found out the hard way.
The timing is very suspicious, considering these 2 verification requests/responses have been a big subject in the CRAP! CRAP! CRAP! thread.
I hope it’s just some kind of type conversion problem, as suggested by mnehring. If so, I should be able to get to those pages as soon as I figure out what changed and how to compensate for it. If not, then I’d like Wordpress to do some explaining to me...
In 9,999 out of 10,000 times, things like this are technical issues. I’m not saying I know exactly what the technical issues are, but that that’s what it pretty much always amounts to - or else - a lousy provider (the blog site, that is ... ).
AND ... a lousy provider is to be considered a technical issue, too (in other words, they just can’t get it right!).
OK, now wait a minute. I typed in to go to http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/kansas-verification.pdf and it took me to the right place. When I click on the URL in the post it has a totally different URL connected to that. I went and changed the URL so that it actually is the URL that shows on the post and it works now.
It’s like somebody changed the URL. I’ll see if the same thing happened on the other one. Yep, it did. All those %’s and stuff. I know I didn’t put those in there. But I went in and changed back to what I DID put in there, and it works now.
Seems funky because as far as I know only those 2 URL’s were changed. If it was something systemic you’d think they would all have had problems. Or at least I would anyway, but I’m not a computer geek either.
Anyway, it’s fixed now, so thanks everybody for helping out! Yay! =)
Just checked my regular email and wow, Barry is having a 10% off sale on inauguration merchandise.
This 5 dollar Presidential Limo button reminded me of the Ireland trip in which the Limo got stuck. If they but THAT on the button, might be worth 5 bucks. lol
I’ve lost my car keys several times (in the house) and looked for over a day - only to find them sitting in very plain sight in a place I had looked at many times in the day-long search.
SO ... I’m suspecting I’ve got gremlins living with me, and having fun at my expense! ... LOL ...
All the extra mumbo jumbo are %20 symbols. This is where there are spaces in the URL. Example http://www.free repulic.com with a space between free and republic breaks the URL. However http://www.free%20republic.com is Free Republic with a space the way some servers see it (not a legit URL as it doesn’t exist but you get the point). Some server engines don’t like the space and don’t convert it to %20 so you have a broken URL.
The next question is do you host this right on the blog’s server (ie just keep it on Wordpress) or do you have your own hosting server through your hosting provider? If the former, it shouldn’t have the empty space problem and there is another reason they aren’t showing up. If the latter, check with your hosting provider to see if they’ve changed to a .NET platform or something like that which doesn’t recognize spaces in URLs.
If they did change, I’m sure they are getting a lot of complaints because most blog platforms just use your title as part of the URL, spaces and all so you shouldn’t be the only one with issues.
Good to see. Sounds like your host may have updated the server engine then ran something to clear the unrecognized spaces so you noticed it in the lag between the two.
Why would it only have a problem on 2 pages? Why didn’t any of the other pages have problems when they are formatted the same way and go through exactly the same servers, engines, etc?
Doesn't anybody follow legal rules, common courtesy, or the standards of sourcing anymore?
I have no idea what an "Al Hendershot" is, but I can guarantee you from what you wrote here, I wouldn't trust anything I read with that name tagged to it. Who steals stuff from Free Republic and re-posts it?
This is why whenever I need to know information, I follow the links, then I search for the information on other sources, and hopefully find good dual-sourced news items to verify what I'm reading.
It's pretty slipshod to assume that someone's 3rd-hand account posted to a blog is a reasonable source of information.
BTW, why redact your own blog entries here? And if it was because of copyright, how could you have them on your blog?
Oh, this all just hurts my head thinking about it.
BTW, arrows are often problematic. Since the left and right arrows are used to delineate HTML tags, if you use them you have to properly “escape” them to have them show up directly.
And also BTW, you can avoid posting stuff that ends up wrong, if you simply DON’T mark the “already previewed” button, and then read over the preview to make sure everything translates correctly.
I’ll admit that i often just post, and then when it is screwed up I wish I hadn’t.
I should explain. When the links weren’t working it was a deal where the URL (that I originally associated with the clickable link when I created the post) had been changed by somebody else so that a different URL was associated with the words you click on. When I realized the URL it was trying to go to when I clicked was not the same URL as the words I was clicking on, I went in manually and reset the URL’s associated with that clickable link (set the URL’s back to match the link showing on the screen, like it was when I first created the post), and then they both worked.
So it was like somebody had changed the URL’s in my post, and when I manually changed the URL’s back to what they had originally been, everything worked again.
I redacted the link to my affidavit because I wanted the Congress members to be able to verify that it was truly signed by me, and signed and notarized by the notary, and all my sources were named and it was all done to legal standards - but I didn’t want my source’s or my contact information available to the general public, because I wanted to protect my family.
My middle-school daughter was really disturbed to find that some of the people who don’t like me have tried to suggest that I am mentally ill and my children should be taken away from me. I like to be able to tell my family that I try to be as careful as I can so that people who wish me ill are not as easily-equipped to do anything bad to me or to them.
And also I’m not sure what the legalities are regarding making public some of the information in the affidavit, because one of the sources had asked me to always ask permission before posting any of her stuff publicly. I’m not a lawyer; I don’t know what happens to agreements like that when crimes are reported, etc. So rather than do something I shouldn’t legally do, I kept the affidavit itself private.
I also kept the case number for my criminal complaint private because I wanted to make sure that Obama’s people couldn’t easily interfere or make threats to try to keep that case from going forward. Unfortunately, whether by threats from outside forces or not, the officer from the Lincoln Police Department was told he couldn’t investigate AND he could not forward the case to the Nebraska Attorney General’s office, which we both knew was the proper jurisdiction (I only went to the city police because the AG’s office had lied to me - according to the officer - and said they couldn’t take cases directly from the public). The Lincoln Police Chief apparently wanted this case to go nowhere while I naively assumed that they were routing it to the proper channels. Real nice, huh?
Sharon Rondeau of The Post & Email will be coming out with an article in which she verifies the legal genuineness of my affidavit, the criminal report I made, etc. She interviewed me yesterday and I let her see it all so she could verify it for anybody who doubts that this is real.
(tongue in cheek) Yeah, I know. I should have checked it over better. And I plum forgot about html using the arrow keys. I guess this mix-up was a SNAFU on my part just as well as on Hendershot’s. An unfortunate mistake all the way around.
But it did make me think about how much I count on the context of my blog to let people know whether my claims are credible, and how they tie in with other things that are going on. I look much more nutty when you don’t see all the documentation on all the other posts as well. lol.
The mumbo jumo is also stuff that isn’t even in the link. Here’s the mumbo jumbo again. It looks like it tried to take a sentence and make a link out of it AFTER the actual link:
That looks like it could be a comment that I C&P’ed from either my blog or here, but the thing is, I never edited the post where this URL would have been inserted. To even get to it you have to go on the September posts and click “Earlier posts”, and the first time I ever even went to the edit screen for that post was when I realized that the URL had been messed with.
