The timing of who knew what and when did they know it is the non-story they're obsessing over. Seriously, they're [italic]faux[/italic] outraged that some initial comments (Susan Rice's, I think) indicated the rioting was sparked by the Mohammed Youtube movie.
Yes, R1, non-story... as in "non-conspiracy". As in, the same party that cut embassy security and who ignored 9/11 and under whose president there were dozens of such attacks, fixating on this tragedy as some conspiracy of incompetence or even malice from the Obama administration.
They hypocrisy is so thick it burns.
Yes, this is just more hypocrisy from the Republicans.
Splinter, board and all that.
How they manage their faux outrage with a straight face truly is something to behold.
non story to me
I hope this thread is still here for the first "non story" after a Republicaniscan is voted back into the White House in 2016.
Hey r6, who in your hive decided that this is going to be your line in the sand?
Seriously, is there like a Central Committee for Issue Selection, like the Communist's Central Committee in the old USSR?
How on the world do you folks decide which issue to get on your hindlegs about?
R7. Try again
No need to try again, Republiturd, answer my question!
Pose a non confrontational, logical question and I will answer. Children resort to name calling.
The GOP always harps on non-stories. Fox News leads the way by pretending there's a problem.
They do this with the deficit, too, ignoring the fact that the deficit is shrinking so they can pretend we need to cut Medicare and anything else that helps the middle class.
Nope, done with you.
Clearly you do. Most animals only attack when they are backed into a corner. Most people attack when they know they are on shaky ground. Which are you?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
