Thread: Obfuscating Our Origin

    Obfuscating Our Origin

    Please quit posting links with spaces and crap to make people go there manually.

    There is nothing wrong with telling each other about polls to vote on, and if we hide the fact that we do we are tacitly agreeing that there's something wrong with it.

    Only an establishment shill would claim it's wrong to tell your friends about a poll, and no one buys it when they do.

    Well, it wasn't that long ago that as a result of a thread here with a title demeaning to Christians linking to a poll on a Christian website, the site ended up disclosing that Ron Paul supporters had flooded the poll from a forum from a thread with a demeaning title and comments that showed contempt for the site's audience.

    Given the nature of many comments here, it's probably better that these places not trace the results back. And when they do trace them back, it just gives them an excuse to discount the results.

    Is it so hard to copy+paste if you are interested in viewing the site? Or just switch to a web browser that lets you highlight text and right-click to follow it if you don't want to have to copy+paste.

    That last thing we want is for this forum to get a bad reputation.

    I agree. I don't see a lot of good that has come from being labeled a mob of internet spammers. Let's not hand them the reason to call us that. I like the split URLs. It isn't that hard to copy and paste.

    How about instead of trying to keep people from finding this site we... not write demeaning things about people?

    The issue is not that I'm lazy, it's that:

    1. We shouldn't have to hide

    and

    2. Our enemies could just as easily point out that everyone voting for Ron Paul apparently came directly to the poll from nowhere and that this shows we're deliberately hiding the site we were browsing previously, a much more damning charge than "Wah, wah, they got their friends to vote too!"

    Or you can always use an anonymizer service (free) so that the link remains clickable:
