Skip to comments.Strange Anomaly on FR website this morning
Posted on 10/05/2013 4:53:09 AM PDT by jsanders2001
This morning I noticed that I had been logged out of my account and one of my posts about the possible RFID chipping program conyained within the Affordable Healthcare Act removed. I received no warnings or notices from the moderators (not that there was anything inflammatory about it).
Just posting this as notice in the event it happened to someone else. It could have just been a computer glitch but given the timing and the subject matter it might mean someone has been on here that isn't a friend.
I am in the Philippines...FR is always online for me.
I have been here all day...Now 8 PM Saturday. No interruptions.
Sometimes that is used as a "shot across the bow" by the Moderator.
"Have a fresh cookie" I think the technique is called.
I don’t think it was Bush’s fault, nor was it Aliens.
What was the source of the article?
If it was an “Infowars” or “PrisonPlanet” piece, then you have your answer right there.
Maybe not, but I'd caution him about the person showering with the moose ... it may not be his sister ....
I wan’t logged in elsewhere. Maybe someone else was... ; )
Have you seen my cheese?
Well mystery solved then. There were tons of links I could have used but I guess I chose the wrong one (infowars). The moderator could have shot me a quick email if thats the case. Lesson learned...
Hey you may laugh but they are reading your email and your thoughts right now...: )
It happened to me a few days ago. The article I posted was about the cop in AZ who was told not to pick up his daughter from school in uniform (because of his sidearm).
I noticed the next day it was a dupe but under a different headline. Anyway, within minutes of posting it somebody posted a comment: “go to hell”. I have no idea nor much care what that was for or about. 5 minutes later the article and comment was gone without explanation.
I though it was extremely rude to do that without an explanation.
I wasn’t logged off though - just had the posting deleted.
Check to see if your computer is plugged in.
Then they will laugh, as well. :)
Maybe you just think you posted it.
The mods occasionally delete threads. There are some popular websites they don’t like such as infowars. And some fairly obscure ones that they don’t seem to like, either. There isn’t a list of no-post websites that I’m aware of other than the copyright list. Sometimes they provide a reason for deleting the thread, sometimes they don’t.
It’s just part of the mysterious inner workings of FR. It probably wouldn’t be as fun to be here if we actually understood all the quirks.
Yep, same thing happened to me. This morning, I noticed that one of your posts was no longer there. And I didn't receive a notice or warning either. Crazy, isn't it.
> Check to see if your computer is plugged in.
yep. And I don’t post very often. but somebody/something keeps logging me out. Was going to ask about it today.
