Any ideas why the Views: stat is missing? I like the stat so I can see when a topic has had a lot of FR interest even if replies aren't high. I checked computers in 3 locations and none of them showed views.

I did a search for "views" and find 1 posting from 3/05 about Views - it vanished before and may not be a universal problem. Also, tried clicking on "Activity" as someone there indicated and some threads have views and others don't.

Might be it eats up to much space?

Hits/view counters by threads shouldn’t take up too much space - not as much as the space taken from multiple postings and archives - there is usually a script error or something like that when counters stop working. A conflict that causes the script not to work...but I don’t know what the tech is at work here.

Lets try leaving it off for awhile, I had a thought briefly that it was a good way to target a thread for trolls to come in and disrupt things, it was just a thought.

I do think that FR should be more defensive in the near future, lets not give away any tools to the lefties, they are worse that rats in a bucket right now.

I have missed the hits also.

My school of thought is that there are a lot of independents and blue collar dens that visit FR and the information available cannot be found on the MSM.

JMHO.

It's become "need to know" sorry about that. I still see it, along with a small rebel alliance of FReepers. As a matter of fact we are all on a thread which you can't see either talking about just this topic.

If you sleep at night wearing two layers of tin foil on you head, mark an X on your front window with masking tape and disrupt a DU thread once a day for the next 46 days, we"ll let you join us.

:oP

Trolls, shmolls. haha I like the stats and have found them usually flagging good posts.

I’m appalled by the lefties behavior...truly stunned that these are the same people who are our co-workers, neighbors and other people walking around in normal-people disguises.

Typo aside I think its really more like cocaine rat-junkies in a bucket full of acid bouncing around.

On my way home from work yesterday here in Wasilla I saw about 30 Obama supporters with their posters and signs whooping it up at Crusey street which is a good spot to do that at here in town, I did notice the response was majorly subdued, no horn honking or drivers waving, someone was taking pictures but mostly I think it was a feeling that most everyone here knows that Obama wants to destroy America and that its a shame too many people have not been awoken to his real agenda.
