Time to unite to end these shenanigans.

Vote Manipulation

Hello fellow Disqus users who have been seeking answers to many questions that surround the Disqus shenanigans that have been transpiring for a while. Many of you have been fighting these problems for a long time, some of us for a short time and some are new to the fray. It seems being scattered around isn’t having too much of an impact despite some of us being singled out here and there on multiple channels.

I of course am referring to the down votes, leader board and channel attacks. These attacks are clearly thought out and seem to be centralized. These attackers seem to have immunity on Disqus as Disqus claims these attacks do not happen, many of us know this is false. This is where we get on the same page so we put an end to this once and for all.

Recently, Canadian Free Press was a victim of a massive down vote spree to knock the channel down. In one day (Oct 9 2016) it saw -18,176 down votes.

How is this remotely possible?

The channel owner was given 2 answers by 2 different gold stars. First it was blamed on the mod panel.

There’s a huge problem with that second one, CFP has only banned 2 users and one account deletion, and combined they would have been lucky to have received 1000 up votes between them. This is where things get interesting. While this was going on, I asked a moderator over on Think Tank Reports if they could show me their channel standings for December 2015 to October 2016 because 2 of us regulars Bruised Orange and myself have deleted our accounts this year.

Bruised deleted his in December 2015 or in January 2016. For those that know who Bruised Orange is, you know he’s got a lot of up votes, and you know he gives a lot in return. His up cote count was at the very least double that of the 18,176 mark. I removed my account in March 2016. My up votes were in the 13,000 range, TT was where I accumulated most of that. This doesn’t even the up votes given to other users. Also, Think Tanks has banned a few users (more than 2 that’s for sure) and

Notice no drops.

Also, Think Tanks traffic isn’t as high as Canadian Free Press, so why no negative drops when the 2 of us deleted our accounts?

CFP has many banned users from CA news, and CFP has been getting hit since later April of this year. The major attacks came in a month before Duck Season posted an ‘Olive branch’ thread on August 23 2016

https://disqus.com/home/discus…

One poster let it slip as to why she was here July 24 2016. She was a CA moderator at this time.

The channel owner noticed this on July 23 of 2016

https://disqus.com/home/discus…

https://disqus.com/home/discus…

After imda was banned and Disqusted deleted his account because of this in mid September 2016

The down votes and flagging dropped significantly. During the time of their heavy dv’s, not once did CFP see any negative votes in his analytics panel, and users were seeing 2-5 per post a day. 15 users were the targets, some light posters and some heavy posters. I would have averaged about 30 posts a day and was hit the hardest seeing 3-5 per post. Why isn’t CA falling, they ban posters almost daily, their traffic isn’t anywhere near as heavy as CFP. What exactly is going on here?

Some of our fellow users who run another channel decided to test out the leader board since some posters who should be there weren’t there. They picked the poster who had the number 3 position on their board and picked them off. Then, put them back on after removing their dv’s, which brought this thread to life.

https://disqus.com/home/discus…

Tony’s answer was a non answer and has yet to still chime in.

This is where the rest of you come in, because you are the ones whom I learned from, because most of you have been in the fray way longer than I have. Paper Girl wants to take this above Tony and Saeed, and we need as much ammo as possible. Please share your findings with those here who are just starting to catch on. Also, with a strong presence they can no longer dismiss us with such ease like they have been doing for a long time now. The goal is simple, the troll tools and trolls need to be removed, the trouble makers and saboteurs need to be dealt with. We all know what the common theme happens to be in this regard.

Please use the shout out feature to call in everyone and anyone possible in this fight so all of your hard work isn’t in vain. You who have been at this forever it seems need to know, it hasn’t been all for nothing. Scattered about, we don’t stand a chance, centralized and they will have to acknowledge this.

Many of you want this experience to be a good one which is why you have done what you have done, and that’s work tirelessly to expose those who have been wrecking the experience for thousands of users, only to be stone walled and dismissed. That’s simply not acceptable.

Do they want a functioning place or a place of dysfunction?

  • This is related: Evaporating Upvotes: FINALLY some Answers .

    @disqus_5Ie0wipqn9:disqus – you may find this to be a more defensible area 🙂

    • I adore your big, throbbing, cerebral cortex. >;P

    • So to test out your ability to protect from trolls – here’s a listing of the SOCK accounts of the same man. I know for sure it’s him because we’ve spent a year bantering online. We met through a simple ViaFoura interface on LATimes, and the complexity of Disqus channels has allowed him to become good friends with almost everyone on this thread here from EchoHawk to BBQ. He’s tight with the UpVote crowd. He’s tight with Forty and Jos. But none – NOT a single one – has figured out it’s the same person? https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-trumpandelection2016/dhb_bytes_the_dust_cant_delete_this_thread_bozo_thx_hauntedmesa_led_me_to_dhbs_demise/

      Can you figure out how to use the computer/IP/BOT to determine SOCKS? Not yet from what I’ve seen the past few months. The human element over rides everything. People just ‘like’ some of his characters and they can’t stand/loath his other characters but NOT ONE can tell it’s the same man.

      • Dogs Of War

        The Disqus Channel System is designed to remove most of the tools that moderators of forums have in order to remove and identify trolls. But here’s the thing:

        We’re not in a channel now.

        There is a lot of information which is available to forum moderators to deal with trolls. And this particular forum has both @halblue:disqus and myself available to help out in research. I’m fairly decent at researching trolls, but HAL is the *master*. Within a day, we should have enough information to identify one of the trolls DESPITE the fact that he believes he’s safe from discovery because he’s in Canada.

        He’s not.

        —–
        Simply put: The Disqus Channel System is specifically and deliberately designed to shift the balance of power in favour of trolls. It is impossible for moderators to identify email and IP addresses in the channels even though Disqus stores this information. So in a channel, the Channel higher-ups will be able to see your IP and email information, but no moderators will, except those moderators that the Channel higher-ups choose to share that information with.

        • Ok, DOW – help me and Boho Honey, since it was the old channel she moderated on that brought this serial abuser to Disqus’ UPVote Conservative community. Use the listing from my Sept update and identify the person so many here on this thread consider a friend under various names. Some are friends with a ‘she’ and some are friends with a ‘he.’ Is there anything else I need to get you? He’s a regular on all of Forty and Jos channels.

          • Dogs Of War

            The target would have to post, upvote, or downvote on this channel in order for this bot to identify him or her, unless he or she downvoted and then cancelled the downvote before I could collect the data on it.

          • the target is all over News For Everyone, Whack, Political Busters – he’s a Moderator on Kim’s channel. You’re on most of the channels he’s on. You’re on the channel he’s a Moderator on now.

        • I’m a channel owner. I can’t see any emails or IP. He’s smooth talked NFE regulars and channel owner, so he must be protected at this point if they have his IP and still allow his SOCKs to play. But then it benefits their channels to have someone with so much time on his hands and so many characters as SOCKs to build traffic on their sites.

          • Dogs Of War

            Channel owners can’t. Forum owners can.

      Well a happy Christmas 2016,and wish you a happy New year 2017 Dr Thomas.
      My account is marked as Private,yet I could not enter my account as stated 9 days ago.On entering the profile,I now have the addition of one anonymous follower.

      Private should mean private! Is there a way to eradicate an un-named follower who has invaded my privacy without name please,no choice was proffered as to my acceptance of an un-named person.Why?
      What is the intention of this ‘follower’?Can they use my account without my knowledge?
      Christmas day 2015.

  • When I went to the actual page to read the article there was no way to comment. The comments section shows up , but no way to comment. IS this a disqus thing ? why do I need to go to the **channel** to post?

    • You’re commenting on the page now …

      • Actually. no. I had to go to the DISQUS PAGE in order to comment. As you know, the Disqus page contains ONLY the comments. There was no way to comment DIRECTLY on the FORUM page. Also when I checked the link to SMNC there were no comments showing AT ALL . Zip. Zilch. Nada. I KNOW there are comments there, but all I saw was blank space.

        Also, the uploads.disquscdn links are not always resolving/displaying properly. Sometimes all that displays is the link, nbot what it links to.

        • You could also go to the main site: http://uncensorednews.smnc-base.org/ it should take you to the article, and its corresponding comments section..

          • I removed a disabled noscript add-on and checked the SMNC article first, since it showed NO comments at all. and It was back to normal.

            At first I DID go to this site. That’s why I said there was no way to comment., but now I am on the forum itself and everything is back to normal. Burns suggested noscript, might be a problem, but since it was disabled anyway I’m not sure what was going on.

  • So — just a little bit of things we may find interesting:

    Forums AND Channels are members of “Organizations” in Disqus. Most of them have a single Organization assigned to them. The relationship is a parent-child relationship, where the Organization is the parent.

    Here’s what this means to Channel Owners:

    An Organization Administrator has access to everything that a moderator can do on a channel or a forum in Disqus. In addition, the organization administrator acts as a “hidden” moderator, and does not count against a channel’s artificial 10 moderator limit (Forums have no such limit). Here is what the “edit moderator” screen looks like for an Organization Administrator:
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/25c686e1e5c53e0f856b833484b00e9d3b3495b61ab6033565dd35ea236ba107.png

    In this case, Dogs of War is the Owner of the Forum “Dogs’s Town”, and has access to 19 channels and forums. HAL Blue has FULL access to Dog’s Town – full moderator rights – but does not show up in the list of moderators at the top.

    Here’s what I mean by that — if I log in as myself and go to Dog’s Town, and list the moderators, I see this:
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/55a1b1525179ea60b7f8ccd9ff36a9034d6fc4400baa05aaf23eb94b5d31dce7.png

    Notice anything missing? In a forum, there is a section telling you that there is such a concept as Organization Admins. This shows whether your forum is in an organization or not (if it is not, Disqus logically places you in one called “” , or an empty space). Notice that IT DOES NOT SHOW the organization admins. HAL Blue has access to moderate Dog’s Town, and I, as a moderator of Dog’s Town, have no idea HAL can manage my forum.

    In the channel system, they remove this section altogether, just like they remove a bunch of other things as well. So for Channel Owners and Moderators: When you want to list moderators, you will not see this.

    • As the World Burns

      Bruised has noticed something very odd about his profile, not sure if the two are related. If it’s still open, you will see he’s got 8 followers, but they don’t show up

      https://disqus.com/by/bruisedorange/followers/

      Initially I thought this was because people had private profiles, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

      I noticed my followers list (when it was smaller than it was) would also jump from 17 to 18 to 17 the odd time. Thought nothing of it, but after seeing Bruised’s profile, there’s something not sitting right there.

      Then he told me about Disqus Sweeper.

      https://disqus.com/by/DisqusSweeper/

      You guys would know more about this than me, is this legit, a bot, or a troll?

      • Disqus Sweeper is a bot on Disqus with the power to remove threads and posts that meet certain criteria. I believe that Disqus Sweeper is an “organization admin” in the channel system (all channels, or most channels, are susceptible to it). But I have no way of knowing for sure — I would have to be an org admin to know.

        Pam is another bot on Disqus. I believe both are unique to the channel system. Pam is definitely an org admin on an organization in Disqus that has over 150 channels in it. AND, three sites as well.

        I can give @bruisedorange:disqus a link to try to find out exactly who his followers are.

  • OKay. It’s working. Don’t know what the problem was.

  • The people who were mentioned in the channel are: @RuleByNature:disqus @infadelicious:disqus @echohawk:disqus @ferdj1:disqus @great_gazoo_two:disqus @craig_tarter:disqus @cajunexile:disqus @dustpuncher:disqus @k5b9nfkbu1:disqus @jaymak:disqus @canadianfreepress:disqus @rubymontana:disqus @logansteele1:disqus @ohjonesy:disqus @disqus_fwwbhsxu28:disqus @omdc:disqus @martypad:disqus @disqus_srosd74zzz:disqus @medalik:disqus @disqus_ngu4fgh0tp:disqus @disqus_dykk3vim3u:disqus @disqus_pjfnlhzdsc:disqus @herbertsherbert25:disqus @karparov:disqus @ed_stauffer:disqus @disqus_statusquo:disqus @prb_ilr_wec_owner:disqus @thebestamancanget:disqus

        Hey Echo.

          Lol hiya Burnsy 🙂 it seems your favorite troll had my comment flagged when I told him to back the F up lol
          I don’t think he likes me hahaha

          • As the World Burns

            Weird, I only see this in my notifications box. Shartsy? He doesn’t like anyone except for himself.

      • BBQman

        Hi Echohawk!

        • Echohawk

          Hiya BBQ how are you doing this morning ?

          • BBQman

            Much better then yesterday, I learned about Kinney stones about 5am yesterday!

          • As the World Burns

            Ouch. Hopefully it wasn’t a bad one.

          • BBQman

            I would have preferred being run over by a bulldozer, but it’s gone now, I was told that eating to much protein can cause them, as well as other things, like not drinking enough water everyday.

          • As the World Burns

            What is considered too much protein? I eat lots of bacon, meat and the like, never had to go through that experience yet (knock on wood)

          • BBQman

            I don’t know, there is probably a formula for how many BTUs you burn and how much protein you should take in, and other factors as my gym rat friends have told me.

          • evenminded

            Sorry that happened to you. My wife had them in both kidneys, on one side so big that it had to be broken up with ultrasound. She had to pass the other and said it felt like she was being stabbed by a hot knife. You should get them analyzed if you can to see what might have caused it. For my wife it was foods high in oxalates, and so she probably got them from eating too much spinach.

          • BBQman

            Thanks evenminded, good information.

          • Echohawk

            Ouch :((( ohh I hope you are feeling better

          • BBQman

            Yes I am.

            I have been thinking about what the goals are for the downvoters and rank manipulators, their ultimate goal is to control as much of the narrative as they can, much like the MSM who will talk endlessly about one candidate saying pu$$¥, and ignore another candidate who is and has been committing treason and should also be brought up on RICO charges and conspiracy to destroy our constitution.

            They, and I do believe most of “they” trouble makers are of a commie/socialist persuasion who are people farmers and have bought into an ideological mindset that they are much smarter than the masses and should therefore control the narrative however they can.

            Our focus should be in how we treat others as individuals and never as part of a herd to be managed.

            So, how should we combat these channel manipulators whose Ultimate goal is controlling the thinking of as many as possible?

            I believe most of these volunteer moderators that are causing problems are motivated by the same ideology that the MSM does and there running around down voting is primarily meant to create chaos and to shut down opinions that do not support that wicked ideology, there is a very glaring parallel between what is happening on D and the media.

            I wonder why some of you computer nerds 😊 around here don’t just start a new site and we all leave D in mass, then the people farmers that are left will eventually get tired of each other and D will become a thorny unproductive vine and waste away.

            Or am I over simplifying the issue?

          • Echohawk

            Not in the least , great comment .
            The complete incongruities of Disqus’s enforcement of their own guidelines can be placed squarely on the answering Goldstar mods as that is part of their duties , example death threats , this happens with complete impunity , which actually places Disqus in a liable position . But I digress .
            Channel owners/creators should have a lot more say over what happens in their channels but instead we are having what say we do have stripped from us .
            Example I have some very high profile friends and acquaintances that I would like to invite to my channel but I can’t prescreen questions and I can’t prevent puerile down voters from hitting my channel . To me this is unacceptable .

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Hello Echohawk, … What happened to you in something I’d never heard of before. I am appalled you were put thru that and Disqus did nothing about it. I’m not happy that I made a report after someone posted my emails (with address attached) and they also chose to ignore that.

            What makes these complaints really disgusting is when it’s actually the channel owner that is playing games that should be considered breaking TOS, but they go unchecked.

            I actually avoid nice channels, such as yours, so I don’t bring an unsavory following with me. That’s a shame, because I think your channel is one of the best ones out here and you are a kind woman and your guest are too. Hope all is well with you and yours. 🙂

          • just_one_Deplorable_guy

            Don’t worry about that. We can handle the shyte disturbers. Feel free to come on over anytime you like! You are always more than welcome to. 🙂

          • As the World Burns

            The goal is to get rid of the tool that allows them to manipulate not just the leader boards, but the channel standings itself. Many of you have suspected channel manipulation via inflation to keep nonsense channels in the top spot while others who see much more traffic can never seem to break the top 10.

            Seeing that dv spike on CFP in one day says to me that all of the suspicions were true about messing with channels elsewhere. What happened on that day was not a troll raid, CFP had already gone through 2.5 months of that and they couldn’t do that much damage in a month with 5 of them going and hitting 15 users.

            One poster worked it out that for 1 person to do that much damage in a day, they would have had to do 12.5 dv a minute for 24 hours. 5 of them couldn’t achieve that, there’s something more going on, and the question is where? The gold stars seem awfully dismissive about it, and where is Saeed and Tony? They seem to be ok with this so long as it’s one of their own committing the malicious acts.

            They’ve gone through great lengths to hide serial offenders and keep that precious in play, why is that? They say it doesn’t matter, so why does it still exist?

          • BBQman

            Most likely the trouble makers are also wanting to push channels to the top hopeing that advertisers will not look past that front page summary in making some of their decisions, or as I have long suspected, within D, the existence of a nefarious Bitcoin mining operation is underway, and Up and Down votes are the vehicle to get there, maybe there needs to be a third function added,
            up vote-
            down vote- must show same information as UV
            Hi I read you- must show same information as UV

            From a consumer point of view, it would be very informative and also be a vehicle to stimulate more questions.

          • As the World Burns

            Change the upvote button to read ‘Hi I read you’ and the down vote button to ‘Hi I stalk you’. 😉

          • BBQman

            LOL, I like it, but the Hi I stalk you needs to display just like the Hi I read you.
            The original theory that an upvote should mean that you agree or just like the comments is wrong. If someone that I say Hi to a lot says something really stupid in my opinion, I believe it better to reply to them a different position or tell them they are full of shait in person, we are all adults and should be open to constructive criticism.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Hello, … I can’t help but laugh on occasion at all those crying about stalkers. Yes, I suppose if they are down voting or verbally harassing others they follow around, it could be seen as very negative.

            I’ve only had one man follow and verbally assault me every chance they saw me and I’ve got one channel owner that won’t even talk to me, but has created dozens of threads (where I can’t post) to demean my character and accuse me of being a big bad stalker. HAHA

            I’ve seen several that are kind of creeped out knowing some are prowling thru their profiles, even to drop upvotes, especially when it appears they’re not even reading them. I get it now, how fun, entertaining and important those upvotes are, but I swear and maintain, I’d trade 100 of them for one reply. I don’t give a flip about the down votes, nor that they affect how my posts land in the best category. When they stalk to Flag … that’s really low. When it’s a channel owner and they go out of their way to Spam your account … again lowbrow.

            Thanks for letting me share. Peace to you and yours. 🙂

          • Well, all my experience leads me tho believe that Tony and Saeed are a major part of the problem. The Goderators could not do what they are doing without T & S’s support.

          • As the World Burns

            Indeed, which is higher up the ladder we go. If the same brush off’s are give from the actual owners, it’s time to bail from Disqus.

          • Dogs Of War

            Something like that plan may very well be in the works. Who knows? There are a few technical people out there to help 🙂

          • BBQman

            The sooner the better, I think things are only going to get worse until the message of individualism and critical thinking supersede the current message of the MSM and D.

          • Dogs Of War

            Well, here’s hoping that if there are people working on this, they don’t slack off.

          • Many of our local media outlets have cut their Disqus contracts and major outlets like NPR and People, just in the past few months. I’ve kept people I’m training about my channel informed. It’s near monthly Disqus is losing its news contracts.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Enough ppl are being targeted and harassed and a good number get sick of it and just leave. It’s not a surprise to me that other websites dump Disqus as an outlet. What kills me about that, considering the false accusations thrown at me, some ppl are wrong when they are accusing others. Some are being banned because they believe the word of some others when often times we find it to be nothing more than BS. Can you relate at all?

          • BBQman

            I got on D as a convenience to get me onto other sites without me having to get a membership on those sites, but D seems to be turning into a Romper Room for all sorts of non contributing misfits who are attempting to stop people from having their own thoughts, and instead herding towards group think.

          • As the World Burns

            Romper room indeed.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Hello, … I’ve heard it told that there used to be a day, out here on Disqus, where others knew who was doing all the down voting. Now how it is they thought it better to eliminate that ability is beyond me. It seems to me not knowing causes more friction than it would to actually know who the cowards are that don’t dare speak, but use that special feature as their way to bump the sensitivities of some CMs.

            Meanwhile a good number of innocent folks, who are not down voting, are accused and harassed quite a bit, by some of the overly senthitive ones. When one of them cried out loud and insisted those doing it come forth, … well, I admitted to doing it half a dozen times and ever since then I’ve been accused of creating dozens of accounts to down vote others.

            When I realized few could even see the down votes and they didn’t know who was doing it … I haven’t drop one since April, a month after I arrived. A good number have and are being influenced to have a negative opinion of my character, when I’m not doing that. You seem reasonably intelligent … can you relate to my concerns in this matter?

            I may head to Six Flags over Texas next time.

      • Hello there, Echo ☺ looks like the GX are at it again — well they ever learn? 😋

        • Echohawk

          Did they take Burnsy’s discussion down on that other channel ?
          These none answers should really be taken to another level of management in Disqus .
          I realize these Goldstars are all unpaid volunteers same as the channel creators/ owners but I just don’t understand this reluctance on their part to improve the situation and this need to totally bullshit people . How hard is it to answer with honesty ?

          • As the World Burns

            Still there for me.

          • Echohawk

            Ok right on , why did you choose that channel to post it on ?

          • As the World Burns

            Wasn’t sure where to post it and they offered when I said I wanted no channels that have gold stars, higher ups, CA/BN ties or questionables as mods.

          • Echohawk

            Ohh well I am highly questionable HAHAHA😈

          • As the World Burns

            Yes you are. You know what happens to people who ask to many questions right?

            😛

          • Echohawk

            Yes they get cookies and stalkers 🙂

          • Dogs Of War

            And a pet doggie sometimes 🙂

            Well that’s the upside 🙂 ☺️🌺

          • As the World Burns

            LOL

            We have plenty of stalkers, but are short on the cookies. What’s up with that?

          • Echohawk

            Calorie nazis Hahahaha

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            I do … @Echohawk:disqus just posted it too.
            I know having my account open right now will attract the same little gamer that has gone so far out of their way to target harass me and then try to make it appear I’m stalking him. Meanwhile the silly little fool keep quoting what I’m saying and none of the the many many upvoting and recommending seem the slightest big aware. Too funny.

            This is hurting Disqus … but I suppose if it doesn’t hurt the all stars or upvotes kings and queens … who cares?

          • As the World Burns

            There should be no favoritism on a platform that sells itself as Discussion. Discussion is a two way street. If they want an echo chamber, they need to state as such, many of us will go elsewhere if that’s the case.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Agreed. I laugh, … the newest boy that created Internet Censorship banned me after a week because I told him I didn’t agree that he appeared to create that channel to take out his frustrations with a certain Mod in particular and to encourage all he could to come in and do the same. No, … I thought he should be addressing more than just one person and start focusing on all the other cases of censorship that goes on out here.

            Like I said, when it’s a channel owner doing it … Disgusting and yes, the one that boy is harassing is a bad apple for banning folks without a warning or reason and therefore the participation was great. We know tho, that some create a channel and make it all about targeting others, but they are all stars and apparently they and others are untouchable. They don’t call disqus a cesspool for nothing. Thank you for your reply.

          • Ronald Carter

            No, he banned you because you unnerved him with your obsessive emailing and your obsessive posting and your obsessive everything. He said that for every one post he got from other people, you posted five.

            They didn’t remove it on the other channel – but this is a forum, and is thus more easy to defend. Plus, Disqus can remove the channel discussions if they want, but they’ll have a harder time permanently removing this thread (because this is a website, and we can go outside Disqus completely if necessary, and still be able to comment).

          • They don’t permanently remove threads even when they remove OP or a user deletes their account. Here are two removed accounts where the thread is still available to view
            https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-whackechochamber/why_is_the_channel_owner_a_piece_of_shit/#comment-2807621619

            You are on this channel. Yet you’ve been unable to spot the same man who is on Disqus night and day with multiple socks. He even Mods with channels you’re on and you can’t spot it’s the same guy.

          • Echohawk

            Not sure what you mean can you clarify please ?
            Edited ok Dogs answer clarified what you are driving at

          • Dogs Of War

            They effectively do – when a user deletes their account, the threads are hard to find, but not impossible. But when Disqus removes the thread specifically, it is marked for deletion, and impossible to find (unless you’re a bot).

          • Disqus deleted a OP last July and deleted its author’s account because that person used the platform to crowdsource targeted harassment of their real world neighbor. So the OP was Disqus community telling this author how to harass the neighbor and Disqus terminated everything but the channel. The person whose account they deleted was the Channel Owner. Can you find this OP if Bots can find Disqus removals?

          • Dogs Of War

            From Last July? It would be … very difficult, depending on how it was done. Let me know the channel and a more specific timeframe, if possible (within 2 weeks range).

            It will take some time, though — but within a day or so, I should be able to recover the thread.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            One of the b|tchfest channels removed many OPs. I can still find some, but not all of them. Some are still their only the creator is no longer named and that includes some that do still have active accounts.

            Some just have more skills than others and if they’re dirty … it does hurt Disqus as a whole, IMHO.

          • As the World Burns

            That’s what happened to modwhine wasn’t it?

          • many of them are unemployed job seekers. It’s a crap economy and one way to find a job for them is to build ties with Disqus management through commenting.

          • Dogs Of War

            Or to build ties with political parties, who are legally required to identify the people behind certain election ads at this point in the race – that’s why tv and radio ads have to say “Paid for and Approved by Cthulu for President – because why vote for a lesser evil?”, or whatever — they have to identify the people behind it.

            However, for far cheaper, they can get a bunch of college students to post on several channels and forums for a few cents and those college students *DON’T* have to identify their employers. Neat trick, eh?

          • Echohawk

            It’s why the hooligan behaviour is tied to leftist commenters , it’s completely politically motivated .

          • As the World Burns

            Or the fact that many of them were the paste and paint chip eaters in our schools.

          • Steve Deplorable Armie

            That explains a lot now does it not?

          • I think you just nailed what my Stalker does on Disqus. Great job! So it’s not just college students. It’s long time Clinton Fundraisers doing that as well. Agreed.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            I know you don’t ever respond to me, but considering my own experience, I can’t help question your scenario. I was surprised to see when some popular CMs had disparaging things to say about you and they weren’t on your list.

            It’s rumored that I have dozens of accounts and that is delusional, so I’m guessing some of those on your list are also not deserving to be.

          • As the World Burns

            Are they possibly the marks of the $98hr google phishing scams? I notice Disqus isn’t doing much about those, but parody socks, those seem to be top priority!

        • Echohawk

          I am thinking we should start a petition letter and send it to Disqus’s upper management because what is going on I think needs some fresh eyes on

          • As the World Burns

            That’s what PG wants to do, sans petition. The petition is what the aim is as all Disqus users can sing it and then it can be presented to HQ.

            Not sure where PG is lately, hopefully she’ll make an appearance.

          • just_one_Deplorable_guy

            Disqus users can “sing” it
            Well okay… But I can’t guarantee you will like what qualifies as “singing” coming from me.

          • I’m looking to sue the place. We should go into a fund for the lawyers because it’d be class action: their algro and business practices reward Liberal Owners channels and marginalize Conservative Channel Owners. This election showed who gets traffic to their sites because when I train people on how to use Disqus with my channel, when we start new Profiles, all the trending channels are Liberals I have to tell them to skip.

          • Echohawk

            I went from trending 5 th on Disqus when I first started my channel to in the low 20’s when I started posting conservative based news articles or think tank reports that debunked leftist propaganda and policies . Those reports are from centric top ranked think tanks that are peer reviewed and all information sites used in the reports are posted .

          • Your channel was one of the first I ever followed when I discovered the Channels around January/February. I’ve stopped coming to your channel because of the drama I had to deal with my Stalker and his buddies who are now regulars. But I agree that your channel is really offering multiple perspectives. It’s just that the Liberal agenda is well orchestrated between government, universities and media. Disqus is on the Liberal side. Sorry to read this happened with your channel. I’d use it if it wasn’t for the stalker being on it. There was a biomimicry post you made some months ago that I was going to build on with an OP about biomimicry, but it’s too much to manage using Disqus with a crazy mental case following me and ruining the experience.

          • Echohawk

            Who are your stalkers ?

          • the link isn’t showing up here. Please see your Notifications. I called it out to you on the page I updated as of September. Or come back to the Original OP As the World Burns did and my links work there. See my exchange with him with the link to a listing of Socks as of September.

          • Echohawk

            The reason I ask is I can do something about it 👍🏻😈

          • Echohawk

            Yes , two of those names I am very surprised at as they are usually good contributors on my site , some on your list have already been banned , and some I have never heard of

          • His primary MO is charm. He kisses MOD ass. He knows all your preferences and he plays to your likes. Until you piss him off. For instance, in Boho Honey’s case: His Joe T character targeted her through me in April. He’s now a buddy with the initial people I had made friends with through the Boho Honey trust factor. I like her – I trusted her early on – she’s a terrific person and DIsqus Moderator. Anyone I’ve befriended, he makes sure to suck up to. You and I at one point were getting along over climate change. His career has been climate change, Global Green USA. But then his HauntedMesa character (who started as a woman and then morphed into a Vietnam Vet) is perfectly willing to spread lies about Boho in cross channel attacks after she stood her ground protecting me. So the same man who is her best friend is also the guy going around Disqus trashing her and bringing Haj into it. That’s the issue with him: he plays both sides of the drama he creates out of boredom. He’s bored, so he mind fucks people on LA Times and Disqus day and night.

            Since ViaFoura is a simpler interface than Disqus, he’s easy to spot on LA Times.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Please don’t misunderstand me, … I’m not intending to purposely offend you. I just don’t buy into that complete list of yours.

            I will agree with you on something you wrote there … The one that goes out of their way to demean my character and tells all the others I’m stalking him … Every time he sees me posting with someone else, he does all he can to make them aware of what is nothing more than his own delusions. He’ll even make them a MOD so he can show them the dozen accounts he believes are me. He’s only got three that actually are and I didn’t harass him with any other than this one.

            He lied, … and went waaaay out of his way to make me the a’hole to hide what he did. Then he finally admits it, but that didn’t matter … I am still the badguy/gal. Tsk!

            Now, your circumstance may be completely different, but your assumptions on all in your list … you’ve not proved it that I’m aware and how does one do that exactly?

          • Plorabilis Ferd

            You are completely missing the point of this thread.
            It was not started so you could come in and complain about something, or a certain someone, that you claimed to be over, several times.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            You came in to jump me and are avoiding answering your ridiculous claim or how you found me like this. You act as though you know so much, yet you miss a lot.

            I am not pals with those harassing you and yours, but I do now see why they enjoy it so, just as you folks enjoying mecking with them. I do think you get carried away though when you tell some,
            Suicide is not the answer. Yeah, you’re kinda mean.

            Have a nice day Ferd.

          • Plorabilis Ferd

            You came in to jump me and are avoiding answering your ridiculous claim or how you found me like this.

            It was answered, I do not enter any threads to “jump you.”
            You should have read all my replies to you before you posted that.

            BTW: I am more than “kinda mean” I am a flaming asshole if you cross me. “Kinda mean” is a compliment. 😉

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Bada Boom !!

            I don’t believe all those she is accusing are doing what she is claiming. Just as I’m not doing what some lowlife channel owner’s been accusing and demeaning my character with. One of those on her list is such a nice commenter and to watch her demean them … it should upset us all that people guessing like that can help ruin a good time for other CMs, and they are. Some folks are foolish enough to believe all they read and even the screenshots can be manipulated. All the while some doing that are very good at hiding what they themselves are doing. Grrrr !

            Pardon me please, for tapping your posts, but I’m known to do that with those I can so relate with.

          • Echohawk

            Try posting a few test comments on my channel and see what happens

          • Re Test Comments – will have to do all that later. We’re in crunch time with mail in voting, so I’m out for the rest of the day. Maybe over the weekend. Also, Dogs of War offered to phish out an OP that if found would validate what I’ve been accused of lying about for months. I have to find DOW what he’s asking for. Will get back to all this later.

            Have a terrific day EchoHawk. It was nice catching up like we used to be when we first met.

          • Echohawk

            You take care , also just a heads up but George Soros owns 15 voting machines in the US and when you vote on those machines there is no trace of who casted that ballot so there is no system of verification once a vote is cast .

          • Echohawk

            seeing that Disqus is a private company , and thus is not compelled to be fair or unbiased I am not sure on what legal grounds a class action suit would be based on

          • As the World Burns

            Petition is the way to go here.

          • Petitions don’t do crap. Most of the petition sites are run by Liberals who profit off the content they sell to third parties. It’d be counterproductive to do a petition with any of the major online sites since they fund DNC SuperPacs and are active in Dem Presidential Campaigns for the IT/Data advisory of those campaigns.

          • As the World Burns

            That’s mostly true, depending on what’s being petitioned.

          • It’s on abuse grounds. California has stringent online privacy and harassment laws. If you’re being abused, and that private company is profiting by trending and leaving the abuse be to sell user data to third parties, in California that’s grounds for a lawsuit. I’ve been in touch with Wendy Patrick Deputy District Attorney and team lead for San Diego’s Sex Crimes and Stalking Division. She wrote a book you may use as reference since I can’t type out all that is involved here “RED FLAGS: How to Spot Frenemies, Underminers and Toxic People.” And he fits the profiles she provides in the book. There is a case from the Abuse Reporting.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            A sad thing about some of the BS going on out here is that some won’t speak up, unless it affects themselves or someone they’ve come to care about.

            I’m here to tell you all, not everyone being accused is guilty and that is helping to ruin Disqus too. The target harassment that is allowed to persist out here is disgusting.

            L keeps calling Be … by your boys name and we all know that’s not a fact. So please, do tell me where you got that outrageous notion. Thanx

          • Plorabilis Ferd

            How in the world did you get that I’m pals with any of them?

            The fact that I have seen you suck up to every one of them at one time or another. After I warned you about them.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Prove it !

            Show me where you ever warned me about anything outside calling your b|tchboy the LIARMOUTH he is.

            Why claim what this thread is not about and yet continue to play your game? Hmmmm, … ol’ pal a mine?

            I’ve never done one damned thing to you (outside try to beg you for a bit of assistance), yet you … you went out of your way to post a screenshot I’d accidentally left my name in. I’m not as skilled as your full time boy is and he is the biggest coward I’ve seen out here.

            He made a thread about confronting and blowing away his stalker. Haha, wasn’t that fun? Oh wait, it was satire, right?

          • Plorabilis Ferd

            Prove it !

            Remember what happened last time you demanded proof for something?

            Ah…seems you do…you brought it up again.
            The proof is in the emails you and I sent each other.

            you went out of your way to post a screenshot I’d accidentally left my name in.

            Oh quit it, Trish. You begged for proof more than once, so I posted the screenshot you were begging for.

            Now stop hijacking this thread with your petty BS.
            It is about the treatment Disqus dishes out, not personal vendettas.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            I don’t know if FERD is your actual name, but I’d appreciate you stop using mine. I can’t see any good reason you’ve repeatedly done that. It’s not cool how your little group feel free to do that, when we least expect it.

            As a matter of fact, I might not be the only one that would also like that to be added to the list of shenanigans that should be discussed in a topic such as this.

            Good Day, Sir. :-/

        • CommUnique <|;~)

          Hello, … A couple of days ago g was accusing several of being a sock of yours. Finally when it was Welderchick she as accusing I asked her how she came to believe all those she is accusing and banning. Haha, she announced, it’s a secret and I was annoying and blocked me. That’s too funny.

          Sure I’m annoying, because I ask questions and call out others for their deplorable behavior, no matter what side they happen to favor. I witnessed two all stars SWITCH positions in one topic and g and the other all stars, … they didn’t bat an eye. Then it all went back to how it originally was, but I’ve got the screenshot to show otherwise. I hate liars and deceivers winning over the truth. I don’t much care for all those calling out the names of others when more times than not it appears it’s nothing more than assumptions some insist is also the truth. Pffft!

          Hope all is well with you and yours. 🙂

          • Apparently, I have so many socks, according to Gina and Denise, that we need to figure out the a collective noun for them. We were going to go with “a drawer of socks”, but we have settled on “a dryer of socks” 😜

            As to seeing the denizens of the All Star contingent switching sides, they did this because of a love song popular in their community, called “Switch, you bitch”. It brings a tear to the eye.

            Anyway, the way gmartini gets her info about my friends and my socks is by using her tablet to get into the admin panel, going to the organization admin section, clicking on “search”, finding my name, and then using her tablet as a coaster for her glass of Everclear and Grenadine, chugging it as fast as she can, and writing out the first names that come to her mind after she wakes up. It’s a trick Okupoloutupoutu taught her called a “vision quest”. So far, its effectiveness is immeasurable (because it doesn’t register on any actual scale). The problem is, this Spirit Magic requires sacrifice, and blocking people generates enough negative energy to power this magic. It all works out 😋

            Hello, … Thank you and I wish I had a minute longer to play at this moment, but since I don’t … I just wanted you to know, I can’t wait to come back and reply to your note there. Doc T, … You and I have been involved in a couple of decent conversations … I just understand more on what some believe should be permitted and what not. It seems everyone has their own idea on what is ethical behavior out here online or disqusOZ.

            As the World Burns, there is so much more to say …

            Down votes is a topic in your list. If Disqus wanted to change something, they should simply remove that feature. That would clear up a lot of BS out here. TD’s post (in link) sticks out like a sore thumb, … If only!
            https://disqus.com/home/channel/canadianfreepress/discussion/channel-canadianfreepress/the_world_forum_october_22_2016/#comment-2963565726

            Then the other TOS violations could be addressed in a large group like this. Why is it so many are permitted to skate around them? Favoritism?

            A good number of topics were mentioned and more could be said about each of them as well as others.

            I’d also appreciate seeing a summary of what was accomplished in this discussion, especially if it closes down without much more activity.

            You asked us to share some stories and it couldn’t hurt others to know some of the experiences out here. It’s good you started the topic, … Where do we go from here?

            Hope you’re having a nice day. 🙂

          • As the World Burns

            Down votes is a topic in your list.

            That’s a small part of it, the larger part of it is channel manipulation. I’m sorry, but CFP had 5 trolls dving 15 people daily for 3 months straight on every post and there was never such an impact on that channel like there was on October 9th when 1 offender was banned and the other deleted their account.

            This is not just a CFP problem, this happens on all kinds of channels except for a select few. Some mods and users don’t know what’s going on, this should serve as a central place away from gold star moderation influence and most of all, dismissive Disqus employees who also moderate.

            Disqus has claimed many times over that they do not matter when they indeed do. Enough of this nonsense. Many here know they are straight up lying, things have been tested, people have been exposed.

            They outweigh upvotes, we just don’t know by how much. I can tell you, it doesn’t take much effort to mess with leader-boards. As for channel stats? That’s someone behind the scenes clearly.

            As for accomplishments? We are just getting started. The only thing that seems to have been shared mostly is individual gripes, that’s not what we are after here, this has been pointed out already. 2 days is not enough, especially when you factor in the internet attack yesterday and now the weekend is here.

            Regardless of where one views lay, this is a medium we all use and Disqus doesn’t listen to us, maybe they’ll listen to us when we are all united on something and go above some heads. Disqus needs to make it clear to all users that use it’s platform on where exactly they stand. Do they want a troll haven, or do they want discussion? Trolls ruin it for all of us, and some a little higher up on the food chain are letting trolls get away with quite a lot. That is what needs to be addressed and exposed.

            Hi Doctor Thomas. I had a little run in with the liberal douchebag hillary lovers Martini and the Coccsux today.
            Shep told me I should check in with you, that you had some juicy secrets and stories you might want to share.

          • I do, in fact… I’ll make a note to return here…

          • As the World Burns

            Been meaning to ask for a long time. What has HAL uncovered since the beginning of the year? Anything of significance that will add ammo to our belt feeders?

          • HAL’s most helpful work is to uncover deep background information on certain specific trolls, or to analyze large amounts of data and find patterns which are non-obvious but are consistent: one account posting within 5 minutes of another account and resuming an argument, where both accounts post in contiguous blocks of time, and which accounts consistently get down voted during the transition, etc.

            For particularly mendacious trolls, HAL can help find some information necessary to get them to leave people alone, either by showing others why the troll shouldn’t get any reaction, or other more direct means of getting the troll to leave.

          • As the World Burns

            I know HAL used to be able to expose the serial dvers who were apparently gold stars, is there anyway to bring this back to light again as it would be relevant to the topic at hand.

            This isn’t just about CFP, I hope people realize this. You guys have done a lot of leg work already, and to my understanding the aim here is to go over Tony and Saeed heads. Paper Girl is missing lately, she’s the one with a game plan, and the info you and the others sit on is 100% relevant to what she wants to bring to the Disqus HQ.

            I’ll see if I can find her since she knows which direction she has in mind, we just want to supply her with ammo and of course back her up in numbers. We all know how working solo goes around here.

          • If you could all her to post here, with “HAL, contact Dr Thomas” I the message, I’ll be able to get in contact with her (HAL doesn’t respond in Disqus anymore, but he watches everything), and we can figure this out / compare notes, etc.

          • As the World Burns

            Just directed her here and to your comment.

          • Deplorable WIOHism

            Excellent, thank you, I’ll look forward to it.

          • Do I have your permission to contact you via email? You don’t have to provide your email address; just permission for HAL to send me your contact info.

          • Deplorable WIOHism

            I saw your upvote so I assume you got it. I didn’t want to leave it out for dERp to dox.

          • You didn’t have to post it: HAL sees everything in forums that have him as a moderator. But I have it.

          • Deplorable WIOHism

            Excellent. Thank you sir.

        Hello Shep, … I truly am floored to read that. Wow!

        Seems a good number of the elite gold star CMs I’d like to follow, have their accounts set to private. I understand some have negative opinions of those that do that, but I know all too well (now) that had I set mine to private, it would have made it more a challenge for those that targeted my account to the point I’ve such a low rep.

        Tsk, on all those that wish to drive commenters from the sites and demean their character to the point they go out of their way to do, every chance they see certain posters.

            I’ve been nasty to two posters out here. I tried to clear it up with both of them, but they aren’t man enough.

    Okay, I asked this elsewhere, but I’d like an answer:

    Okay, I have to ask because I don’t know. Could this somehow be a technical error that occurred on that day. So could it be an accident?? Its so massive that its hard to believe this was carried out by a few people. And if it was it was certainly at a higher level than the average poster that hangs out here or at CA.

    DISQUS has had quit a few glitches over the last couple of weeks. Are we absolutely positive this is not another one?

    The finger pointing at specific people is happening already. Have we eliminated all other possibilities before we do that. That would be the moral ground. As I said, I don’t know enough about how it works, I’m just asking.

    • Dogs Of War

      Hello and welcome 🙂

      Disqus is plagued with technical errors, but there is a certain contingent of trolls who have learned to take advantage of these errors for their own benefit. they are people who have worked closely with Disqus. Their channels were created *BEFORE* the Disqus Channel System was launched. Several of them are all-stars, or know all-stars. And several understand exactly how a lot of the hidden information works — like Reputation scores, etc.

      The fact of the matter is, a few months ago, people who moderate and run these “privileged” channels started noticing that they weren’t the “Mount Olympus” of channels anymore — some were starting to catch up. When one was getting close to about half of the weekly participation of Breaking News, it got summarily deleted without warning. That channel is now this forum. Disqus didn’t think we could re-create a channel, and the trolls were livid when we did. More channels were getting closer and Disqus decided this was due to the fact that people have friends on the channels, and the upvote their friends.

      So a few months ago, Disqus did something they have never done in their 9 years previous: They mass-deleted upvotes. If a user registered, acted like a normal user, upvoting, posting, etc., and then decided to delete their account, *all* of that user’s posts and upvotes are now removed from the channel.

      Additionally, when a thread is closed (and threads in tthe Channel system only “live” for 7 days), the ability to upvote what someone *said* has been removed. @tonyhue:disqus claimed that this is because they want to leave a thread pristine – untouched. That closing a thread should keep it untouched. However, this is wrong, because when a user deletes their account, their posts and upvotes disappear from the channel.

      When a user is banned, that user cannot downvote or upvote. My suspicion, which I can’t prove yet, is that when you ban a user, that user’s votes (upvotes and downvotes) get cancelled.

      Channels that are not the “blessed” channels continue to do well against the SJW-run echo chambers, because the moderation of those channels, like News Views, is toxic and not conducive to actual conversations with people. I understand that Breaking News has undergone some moderator changes, so I’ll hold out judgement until I see for myself.

      I can point to a clear pattern of Disqus changing their code, to the point of taking their system down, to change the rules to favor their pets — only to see their pets get lower in every measurable way. Disqus Channel System doesn’t want to admit that the toxic moderation of their flagship channels — their created channels, whose moderators they favor with all-star status — will guarantee that their channels will continue to fall in the rankings.

      The problem with this is that the “tweaking” done for the channels is *system-wide*, not just unique to the channel system. So when they cause posts to delete and votes to delete because a person is no longer with Disqus (if they deleted their account, for example), those deletions CHANGE THE REVENUE STATISTICS of the sites in question. This wasn’t an issue in the channel system because the channel system doesn’t do advertising anymore (probably because of the toxic nature of the flagship channels). However, this IS an issue when calculating advertising revenue. My guess is that sites were being shortchanged because the statistics are artificially lowered in order to appease the Special Snowflake crowd (like @yourcoccyx:disqus ). And I would further guess that someone *complained* about it. Maybe several. Because now they’re screwing with site’s *money*.

      So it looks like Disqus *can’t* change the system anymore to benefit their pets. Maybe they can make a few tweaks here and there, but they can’t do much — and the “blessed” channels will continue to decline until toxic moderators are removed from those channels.

      I’m sorry this went on so long, but I figured that a more thorough answer was in order.

      • CPO1

        Don’t be sorry! Thank You. I had pieces of the picture, but had not fully understood it until right now. If I had my way your post would be the featured one, because everyone entering this discussion should understand it at that level prior to commenting.
        Thank You.

        Sorry for butting in but your reply to CPO1 brought two things to my mind. One is that I recall losing approximately 8,000 upvotes several months ago and I asked about it on a thread. The second is a question. Do you think what is going on has anything at all to do with “Reveal” which I believe generates revenue for Disqus and interested communities?

        • Dogs Of War

          Disqus was “adjusting” vote counts. Long story on that one. And yes, the fluctuating vote thing is related, in part, to Reveal.

  • CommUnique <|;~)

    Hello, … When I first became a Disqus CM, I was astounded at all the b|tching.
    It didn’t take long to understand exactly why that is, but I won’t pretend I understand
    all the shenanigans, though I have caught on to some.

    I wasn’t here two months yet before I made the mistake of confronting a powerful player out here
    (one of your upvote pals). They proceeded to campaign and target my account and I hadn’t realized
    how effective that was until just recently. Now I notice many of my posts (especially in new channels) go immediately into pending and then consequently deleted as Spam. Spamming someone’s account
    is better than Banning them, so I’ve come to discover.

    I hope you don’t mind I came in to share that, DDT. Peace regardless to you and yours. 🙂

  • Deplorable WIOHism

    I’m curious, I was banned by Coccsux today for posting a hillary joke, calling me an a55hole on the ban knowing I couldn’t respond, then Martini chimed in knowing I couldn’t respond as well.
    I’ve also noticed vuppe/im with her.
    Is there a possibility this Gold Star nonsense is one of the DNCs side projects to discredit and destroy conservative posters?
    I’m a bit of a conspiracy theorist so I could be either on to something or just showing my paranoia.

    • There are many people here who work for them. Including those you mentioned.
      Although they have (((other))) interests too.

    Hi everyone,

    Most of you don’t know me but I’d like to provide my perspective. I joined Disqus on May 24, 2012 and my frequented communities are visible in my open profile. I post frequently and am a moderator.

    Below are links to most of my comments posted on The Dawg House “Down Votes Manipulating Leader Boards” thread started 12 days ago:

    Downvotes are one of several factors that determine the Top Contributors list that is auto-generated in a channel. Others include your comment posting history, upvotes, deleted/marked as spam comments. There is no plot/conspiracy to manipulate the list of commenters in a channel. This also has no effect on any of the channels that one may admin/moderate.
    3 •Reply•Share ›

    As you can see, Tony said there are several factors involved. What crossed my mind reading Tony’s reply is that he did not discuss the relative importance of the factors he names and thus I replied directly to him with this:

    Paper_girl Tony Hue • 11 days ago
    Hi Tony, this raises a few questions for me, one being does each factor have equal value or are they weighted?
    On another topic (still Disqus related) could you please tell me when the results of the moderation feedback survey will be made available?
    4 •Edit•Reply•Share ›

    That day I did not receive a reply from Mr. Hue and I have yet to see one posted to me.

    I have also posted comments on CFP about this topic. I know I sound like a broken record but it’s my belief that we need to know what is going on with the voting system and what is actually supposed to happen. What I wrote 3 days ago to another CP (who is also a Mod) pretty much sums up how I feel: Lastly, I also feel (and have expressed) that if we do not hear from Mr. Hue (which I believe we should have by now on The Dawg House thread that remains open to this day) then my suggestion is that someone more senior in the Disqus company be contacted to have any and all questions and concerns addressed fully as needed. Climbing the ladder is the kind of follow up that I think may be needed soon to put this to bed, hopefully once and for all.

    Paper_girl IRWeasel 3 days ago
    Weasel, It is not just one person who is interested (I will refrain from using the word obsessed). There are those, including myself, who want to understand what is going on with the voting system and what is supposed to happen. The discussion started in the Dawg House about a week ago generated so many comments that it seemed clear that further follow up with the company would be necessary. There were many issues raised and questions either not answered adequately or not answered at all, leaving the topic not sufficiently addressed. Transparency is needed. Along with transparency, comes understanding and accountability. So, to address your claim that Burns is the only one, you are not correct.
    If my writing here is not clear, I apologize. I fell asleep and just woke up to see your post and others. Now it’s time for sleep again. Think I’ll be offline for a few days. I need a break from commenting. Good night.

    Thank you for reading my post. Sorry for its lengthiness!

    • As the World Burns

      @DrThomasAquinas:disqus Welcome aboard PG.

      I agree with you that we need to go over some heads at this point, but before we can do that, we’ll need ammo. Ammo these guys can provide along side of our own. I am confident that many here will stand beside this idea as many of these posters here have been trying to expose the rot for a long time.

      One has to wonder if this is how Disqus was intended to run, or if the platform has been hijacked by some with an agenda or vendetta against certain mindsets. I guess we’ll find out soon enough when we come up will a solid plan and put it all out on the table.

      Again, welcome to the fray.

      • Paper_girl

        Thank you Burns. I’m just reading through everything now.
        I agree wholeheartedly about the need to collect information. We’re also on the same page when you wonder if this is how Disqus was intended to run vs it has been hijacked. That’s what I was getting at when I wrote, “There are those, including myself, who want to understand what is going on with the voting system and what is supposed to happen.”
        Take care.

        • As the World Burns

          Well, I just got a disturbing email from Echo saying her email was compromised. By whom is what I’d like to know since there’s lots of other stuff going on in the background with certain people.

          Careful PG, change your email password just to be on the safe side.

  • Steve Deplorable Armie

    If you look at the Posters on CFP and PS (Phaneuf Svcks) Most if not all are Conservative Supporters.
    Most if not all have been Banned unfairly by CA News, Breaking News and any other Channel owned by the previous owner.
    It makes sense that the down votes are coming from those areas.
    Admitted by both ImDa and Disgusted. It’s been a daily assault for Lord only knows how long.

    I can tell you I know there are a couple of posters there who are still down voting consistently and screwing with the leader boards.

    Disgus should give the Mods on the channels the down vote info. Who – When and How many times and who they are down voting.

    • As the World Burns

      The 2 channels you mention (CA and BN) are always coming up in regards to Disqus drama. That’s what makes all of this interesting.

      • CommUnique <|;~)

        Goodness, … I can’t seem to find that post you made in reply to my last one.

        I’m concerned about ‘fowl play‘ and target harassment when it comes to Flagging and Spamming a commenters posts. What ends up happening, as a result, is our posts immediately go to pending and often times removed as spam. That’s quite an effective way to silence our voices and I think it should be addressed. I apologize for trying to make this anything other than you intended, just as Matti also was doing. I focused on her posts because I’ve also been accused of having over a dozen accounts to down vote others, which is not the truth, but yet another tactic of target harassment.

        I did go to my channel and discover my name removed from Top Contributors (for which doesn’t concern me) and that’s when I noticed how many times my posts were down voted. Thanks for your replies … I’ll bow out now.

  • Thought experiment

    • As the World Burns

      Interesting you say that because in Saeed profile he says he likes conducting social experiments.

      Does he see us all as lab rats? Does HQ approve?

      • CommUnique <|;~)

        My post in reply to your last one to me is still in pending.
        Here it is:
        Until discussions such as those become ‘The Most Popular Discussion on Disqus … it will continue to be business as usual.

        I think all the topics discussed in here should be addressed. Instead what happens is we’re told to get over it, no matter that’s it’s still happening. In this last month my account has gone from 500 Flags to 819 and 300 Spam to 479.

        As I mentioned, the majority of my post go to pending. I’d challenge anyone to find something in my account/profile that deserves to have my voice stifled. I mean you no disrespect, but if that were happening to you, would it concern you enough to bring it into this topic? What about Matti’s concerns? I think if she can prove what is happening to her … someone should put a stop to it.

        Target Harassment is against the rules and yet …
        Yes channels are experiencing it too, just as a good number of commenters.

        • As the World Burns

          Yes, this is a troll tool as well. And yes, thanks to my buddy Disqusted I went from 8 flags to 84 in less than a months time.

          When he was called out by Frink and myself. He said “I was given permission to flag questionable posts” to which I said to him “Please point out these 70+ ‘offending’ posts”, he deleted this account immediately and went into hiding until Oct 8 2016

          Coincidentally on Oct 9 2016 this is what happened to CFP in the course of a day.

          Any who, flagging does serve a purpose, spam, ad bots (etc), but of course trolls see this as a way to waste a channel mods time and try and mess with someones site rep.

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            That’s unfortunate that one poster can cause that much havoc, but still, the numbers are low compared to some others that have been targeted.

            Can you imagine if there was a campaign created and many joined in to Flag your account?

            Can you imagine the campaign is being conducted where you’ve been banned for calling out the dirty sock doing it?

            Can you imagine telling the truth, yet the majority favored the one telling the lies or delusions they were paranoid enough to believe?

            Can you imagine that all happening with Disqus CMs that are new? That all happened (and continues) after I’d been here only a month. Who else has similar stories?

            All that because I called out a LIAR, but this is a personal gripe and has no place in this discussion? Have you read thru some of the comments of those you’ve listed? You don’t believe some of them also contribute to the BS out here?

            Please don’t be offended, but dang, … I’d like more of the BS exposed, not just that which affects some and ignore what’s happening to others.

            I thank you for your feedback and I only wish I had confidence that all the things that make disqus a cesspool would be addressed.

            Hope you have a nice day. 🙂

            1. It’s happened, this is not my original account.

            2. I have no legit bans under my belt. My first ever banning was for thanking Duck_Season. I kid you not. The rest are pre bans, I only know about 2, Ducks Den and the other ban was lifted by a mod over at the internet love test channel.

            3. You have no idea in this regard. It took a few months, but lots of people came around even those who were pretty nasty about it. Patience is key.

            This is about troll tools, not personal vendettas or personal issues. This is supposed to be about as many users uniting to make this place just a little bit better. Nothing will change fighting and bickering, but having certain toys taken away will lesson that drama. That’s the aim, and it works in everyone’s favor (except for trolls)

          • CommUnique <|;~)

            Okay. Again I apologize for interrupting your topic.
            Regardless, it was nice to meet you.
            Best of luck with all that.

          • Hello there, Paper 😋. Do you mind if I contact you via email? You don’t need to tell me your email address; HAL already has it, but he won’t tell it to me without your permission…

          • Paper_girl

            Who or what is HAL?

          • HAL is an artificially intelligent data collection and reporting program that determines correlations between sets of data, then generates abstractions or “rules” which can account for 80% of the correlations observed.

            For example, certain posters use certain word patterns consistently, and finding other people who use the same word patterns goes a long way to determining sock accounts.

            HAL is also a moderator in this forum.

          • Paper_girl

            So HAL has (or can figure out) my email addy based on my word patterns?
            HAL needs my permission to give you my addy but how do we know for certain he has the right one?
            What if I have more than one email account, one that I use for disqus commenting and another one that I’d prefer you to have for communicating directly with me?
            Is HAL a moderator on all channels?

            Sorry for asking all these questions. That’s what I do.

          • Most likely, HAL would provide the one attached to Disqus. HAL can figure out if two accounts are the same based on word patterns, but uses other means of those means are available. HAL needs your permission as a safety override in the event HAL was ever run by anyone other than people I know. HAL is only a moderator on two forums, and I don’t think any channels, because the channel system is severely limited.

            If you’d prefer to use a different email address, I can email the one HAL provides, and you van email me back with the one you prefer
            This way, your email doesn’t have to be known. Once it’s on Disqus it can’t be removed.

            No problem with the questions 😋

          • Paper_girl

            I’m very old school. Not tech savvy at all. Abyss calls me Nancy (for Nancy Drew) for good reason. 🙂
            Anyways, you are welcome to email the one HAL provides even though I’m not quite sure where it goes. I will likely be out at a meeting tonight and I’m on various channels plus into hockey pools these days but I will look out for what is sent.

            Hello Doc. I sent you an e-mail a while back about a troll you are hunting. It is the same one Jarhead told you about. He has been trying his impotent threats on me again and I was wondering if you need any fresh information on him.
            Please let me know!

      • He has a degree in psychology. Does that answer your question?

        • As the World Burns

          No. That means nothing to me. All it tells me is that he is a professional manipulator. Psychology is a bogus ‘profession’ in my eyes. If people actually conversed with each other in mutual light and looked out for one another, there would be no psychologists.

          People wish psychology degrees, tend to use people as lab rats and often prey on the weak minded.

          • You just explained why he is friends with the all stars who are the problem. They fall for all kinds of weak minded idiocy for him to use in a study on behavior. As long as he allows them free rein he can use them to take advantage of the CM’s who do not know him or them or what he is doing. That bunch is easily manipulated as I have proven over and over again in an effort to get people to see what is going on. A slight nudge is all they need to go along with whatever plan is cooked up and Disqus turns a blind eye to all of it so CM’s can be used as lab rats.

          • As the World Burns

            Yeah I guess. I just see that degree as worthless.

      • Lian Renaud

        Now theres a question.

  • As the World Burns

    @DrThomasAquinas:disqus @martypad:disqus @Echohawk:disqus @Paper_girl:disqus @canadianfreepress:disqus @Prosecute_Hillary:disqus @disqus_mKMthlGSrB:disqus @FerdJ1:disqus @RuleByNature:disqus @Infadelicious:disqus @disqus_WlvVO2u5hT:disqus @ohjonesy:disqus @cajunexile:disqus @disqus_sRoSd74zZZ:disqus @ThePhoenixRises:disqus

    This is what we need to show Disqus HQ once something is hammered out. This may help that step.

    1. Proof of which users have been causing problems for many channels here. Hopefully Dr Thomas or anyone else out there has screen shots of the gold stars being exposed as serial down voters when Hal was able to expose them. Any screen shots of collaborations (talking about raiding channels to flag and down vote, and where they call home).

    2. Which channels seem to be favorite targets (ie; are they more ‘conservative’ in nature?)

    3. Channel stats. CFP’s show a huge down spike, what about other channels? What have other channel owners discovered in months past?

    Hopefully this is some sort of starting point.

    I’ll go through what I have once the cobwebs are shaken off and make notes of where these posters come from based on what I have. I suspect many of you are already doing this and no doubts have tons of stuff to sift through. Please take your time, there is no rush.

    • Echohawk

      Regardless of what the channel stats show , I don’t think anything will be done or changed for the better .
      This is obviously politically motivated and I think their is a movement within lower and middle management to make Disqus into a politically mono culture .
      It’s probably doing me some favours as it’s moving my interests onto sites with 60 million plus users and where I have far more control over negative actions taken against my site .
      I will of course keep my channel going on Disqus and hope for saner heads to rule someday . As it stands right now channel creators/owners have zero recourse or power to stop the negative manipulations by those targeting their site nor does that look like it will change anytime soon in fact I think it will get a lot worse in the future .

      Edited

      • As the World Burns

        I don’t think anything will be done or changed for the better .

        We don’t know that. We know that is true with Tony and Saeed, but what about the actual HQ? Does HQ even know? Lets say they don’t and investigate, they could very well clean house.

        If they do in fact know, it will be reflected in one shape or another in their response. If they are complacent, then people will jump ship in droves like they are doing elsewhere.

        You bring up a very valid potin about channel owners not having much control over their channel, that is something else that has to be addressed for sure.

        Tony hasn’t gotten back to anyone on OFRU’s channel, and we are climbing to the 2 week mark now, Tony was however present last night wanting to test out the call out feature to get 1000 users there. It’s clear Tony doesn’t want to address actual questions about the platform. This is why we go further up.

    Mycathasarifle – This fellow has 3 accounts and tries to mask them by changing his original account handle so people are none the wiser. His other handles are Silent Running and Dances with Dragons. Said he was a mod once. Not sure if that was on the CA side or not, but CA news is where you will find him.

    So it appears @disqus_7hCo7Dm64C:disqus is afraid to post anywhere that the Dogs of War is a moderator. I can’t speak for all channel owners, but I know the owner here would be ok with inviting Loretta to this party. After all, this thread is about people just like her.

      I had some difficulties with that: Could not find user “disqus_7hCo7Dm64C:disqus”. Be sure you’re using the user name (after the @ sign) instead of the display name.

      • So it looks like it didn’t find her in the banned user list. Don’t know why @disqus_7hCo7Dm64C:disqus doesn’t post here, because there’s nobody afraid of her here… unless she’s “factually inaccurate” about the reasoning.

    • As the World Burns
  • Nothing will change until people voice their complaints on public complaint boards and forums such as pissedconsumer.com , As well as review sites such as sitejabber.com As long as Disqus knows the complaints are not going public Disqus has no reason to worry about lost business or lost revenue so Disqus will not address the problem.

    • As the World Burns

      The plan is to go right to the top. Way past Tony and Saeed. They are only CM’s.

      • Then you need to make certain that you create an complete OP on channels such as MW2.0 The only way Disqus will pay attention is if it becomes a problem in the court of public opinion. In order for that to happen we have to work together at moving the conversations to the top of the search engines by sharing and commenting on each OP exposing the problem.

        • As the World Burns

          They shut the original modwhine down for doing just that. We all need to get centralized, that includes as many mods from a variety of channels as possible. That way, in one spot if they try and shut it down, there will be a large audience.

          Got a question for you. Weren’t you a gold star once? Or am I thinking someone else?

          • I shut down the original MW on my own. I was tired of Saeed censoring the channel. Disqus never threatened me or my channels in any manner. I just wanted a few days to regroup and cool off because I was becoming seriously frustrated with all of it. I made my new account only after I received and email from the CEO outlining what Disqus employees could and could not do. The first OP I made on me new channel shared that email so the employees were on notice that I knew they could not do what they had done on the original MW. Yes, I was a gold star when I had MW and what people saw on the public channels was no where as vicious as what was done to me on the all star exclusive channels. A few all stars have spoken out to confirm that in the last few months.

          • As the World Burns

            I was tired of Saeed censoring the channel

            Thanks for clarifying. This is what I’d like to avoid elsewhere.

            I made my new account only after I received and email from the CEO outlining what Disqus employees could and could not do.

            This is what has my curiosity soaring right now. What were these ‘outlines’? What immunity was given to those that would toe the bottom line? We’ve seen some bold gold stars as of late who seem to be immune from the TOS. I remember seeing some of your posts in regards to be being frustrated, I just never saw enough of them to know the full story. You seem to have something many of us here don’t have, and that’s a bit of insider knowledge which is highly valuable in this fight. Please share all that you know in this regard.

            A few all stars have spoken out to confirm that in the last few months.

            Are they still around? Can you call them here and get them to share their experience as well?

          • I will in email as a couple of the all stars stated point blank they are waiting for me to screw up so they can use it to get me suspended. deborahallen@yahoo.com

    As I just shared elsewhere, going back in time (a couple of years ago), CPs wanted downvotes to be visible and if not, they wanted Disqus get rid of downvoting altogether. There were strong feelings expressed.

      Nice find. Nancy Drew indeed! 😀

      Love this part

      “The number of Downvotes a comment has received will no longer show in Disqus. We made the change based on an expectation that less visibility into downvoting would lead to less gaming or abuse of the voting system.” 8 upvotes 234 downvotes

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bd79551c880e26ca2cba46a4e99f0b5ae33703b56b33ae93d6b1e8886382aff4.gif

    • Awhile back there was the ability to see who downvoted posts. When that method was used to demonstrate that certain people ( @yourcoccyx:disqus and @gmartini:disqus , who I don’t mind summoning here because I know they’ll never post here) were downvoting some people for pretty much everything they said (including, at one point, “prayers are with the family”, or the like), those people got upset that people had found out what petty little shiats they are. So they learned a life lesson and become someone worthwhile whined to Tony and Saeed and within 2 weeks, the feature was modified so that channel moderators don’t have access to it.

      • As the World Burns

      • Paper_girl

        Ages ago, I remember when it was possible to see downvoter names on the comment boards at the Toronto Sun. Did you comment there too?
        Personally, I think channel owners and their mods should be able to see on the mod panel who downvotes a comment. I see nothing wrong with that.

      • I’m Spartacus MC

        Yes how I do remember that Thomas. Things will change.

        • Bruised Orange

          Hey mate good to see you, you are safe here. Disqus and them goons can’t touch you here.

      • On a somewhat related subject. I tried to report Jeffy’s NEW account. The option is greyed out, they say I’ve already reported it. I hadn’t — i reported the OLD account(jeff changed the username on his old account to @jewish_jeff and used the @jewishjeff for this new account.) This smells to high heaven. Here’s a screenshot of his old account as it stands now — compare it to the date on the new one https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c32456d496ce9082e444e72554f7ba39ef2908827e04e5ec19bfe73369ec5a8e.png

  • I just checked my engagement. I normally don’t worry about this stuff. I did have a few days of negative votes, which is odd, as I am a nobody channel. We don’t have upvote bots or a lot of people that delete their accounts. The only one that has deleted his account (that upvoted a lot) could not have generated 1400+ negative votes……I don’t think.

    • As the World Burns
      • That’s very interesting, AtWB. I wonder which one of them removed it?

        • As the World Burns

          That’s what I’d like to know.

          • Yeah, it’s been my experience that a moderator usually let’s a person know why their comment is being removed. Imagine that.

          • As the World Burns

            It’s right thing to do, but we know 3 of them on that list aren’t very open or transparent.

            Side note, can you keep this open after the auto lock?

          • I don’t think this thread will go to auto-lock, AtWB, as it isn’t on the Disqus Channel System®. I’m sure that @DrThomasAquinas:disqus will leave this discussion open as long as necessary.

          • Ah – I should have waited a few minutes longer for your reply 🙂

            Indeed – this forum is set to not auto-close threads.

          • Would it be possible to find out which moderator actually removed my comment (pictured above) from that thread? You know, for general interest sake?

          • It’s not possible, as Disqus doesn’t collect that information, as far as I know. What I know of the way Disqus’ database suggests that if they started keeping track of that, we’d likely start having issues with our notifications again.

          • Thanks for letting me know, Dr. Thomas. If you don’t mind Doc, could you possibly run statistics on that thread? I get the feeling that the inferior bot Pam isn’t going to run them again. Plus, I actually trust your statistics.

            Good morning, Marty — I Know nothing re “inner workings” of Disqus…why/how shenanigans by a certain element occur to begin with. Just post my political remarks, music & enjoy communicating with fine like-minded folks. You can likely provide info on a curious setting. How’s it possible for a person to get 20+ upvotes by “Guests” on a single post when one must have registered Discuss account in order to comment and/or upvote? Is that heavy uptick triggered by a Robot (read several comments about bots)? This is certainly the lighter side of my recent viewings. It smells dishonest…strange, but not nearly as concerning as death threats & other demented antics of unhinged loons. Thanks for your thoughts — Marianne

          • Pumpkin Pie

            Good question. I’ve wondered this also Marianne.

          • Marianne-in-NJ ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

            I have been wondering the same thing Marianne.

          • Marianne-in-NJ ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

            Seems I’m not alone in this observation. As Trump says: it’s rigged! LOL

          • I believe what you’re seeing as “guest” votes are actual registered accounts, Miss Marianne. If a person on a thread reaches a certain threshold of upvotes, the Disqus® system just shows them as “guest”. It’s much more visible on sites like Breitbart where people tend to get a whole bunch of upvotes. Not to say there aren’t bots that exist for the sole purpose of upvoting (or downvoting & flagging). For a while, the bots were out in force in a concerted effort to hijack comment threads. Supposedly, the whole reason Disqus got rid of “guest” upvotes was to combat that. That remains to be seen. The specific thing we’re dealing with here, Miss Marianne, is the coordinated attacks by all stars a certain degenerate faction on some of the more conservative oriented channels. We’re talking flagging, down voting etc., which affects the Reputation Score of individual accounts/posters, and by extension, the channels they frequent/visit. There are certain members of Disqus® management that do nothing about it, no matter how many people complain.

          • Marianne-in-NJ ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

            Aha, I see says the blind man! After reading your trusted explanation, analyzed 2 posts on same site where (assumed) anomaly viewed…ceiling is 50. Many thanks for satisfying my curiosity, Marty! Considering some immature, temperamental nonsense viewed over the years, together with newly learned hacking/other foolish antics, good soldiers like you have a more frustrating task because of certain do-nothing Disqus Mgrs. Kudos for working towards cleaning up the problem — likely time-consuming. Again, thank you for spending time in bringing me up to speed!

          • You’re welcome, Miss Marianne! Very time consuming, but a bunch of us are just trying to help make things fair, something most of those degenerates have no concept of.

          • I’ll have HAL take a look this evening ☺

          • Thank you, Sir!

            Have any of you ever seen this poster before?

            Low activity, been around since 2013, no followers but is following a decent amount of people. Was on my followers list all of a sudden, removed them.

      It seems that Forum Fascism is in full effect.

      • Yeah, and I bet the so-called all-stars are scurrying around the Disqus All-Star Clubhouse® as we speak, wondering what they’re going to do with the can of worms they’ve opened, Mr. R.

        And if it wasn’t one of the 5 moderators (listed above) that removed my comment, does that mean that Disqus® uses bots (or Super Secret Moderators®) to remove comments? Hmmm…

          • Since it seemed like a pretty big to-do with Tony Hu & the All-Stars (no, not a ’70’s pop group), I’m not sure they’ll get rid of it, AtWB. What I’d be really interested in seeing is Pam’s current statistical count on that thread.

            https://disqus.com/home/channel/channelchat/discussion/channel-channelchat/community_roundtable_the_most_popular_discussion_on_disqus/#comment-2963907109

            Say, maybe we can get @DrThomasAquinas:disqus to run some statistics on that thread if Pam refuses to, or doesn’t want to acknowledge doesn’t? LOL

          • As the World Burns

            It was removed in less than 3 minutes. Almost 2k comments there and they were all over it. The question remains though. Which out of those 5 mods was watching?

          • I never got to see your comment, AtWB. I clicked on your link within a minute of you posting it to me. At first I thought you were talking about the entire thread being gone. Then I looked at the URL. That’s why I answered the way I did. It didn’t even last a minute! I guess we’ve gotten someone’s attention. Good.

            As a side note, has anyone else noticed that none of the cowards perpetrating all the Shenanigans has come here to defend themselves? You know, they wouldn’t last 5 minutes outside their Special Snowflake Disqus Channel System®.

          • As the World Burns

            Yup, I notice quite a few of my favorite posters are absent after trying to single me out for the last 3 months. I expected some shit on my shoe, but the ones I want most here are not. Hmmm indeed!

          • That’s because they are chicken shit, AtWB, something that one would usually scrape off their shoe. Gutless, sycophantic suck-ups to the Disqus® higher ups. And since I know they’re reading this, the Shenanigans they’ve been playing with the Disqus Channel System® better come to a stop.

          • As the World Burns

            Well based on all that we’ve uncovred so far, it seems to be working as intended.

            It seems Diqus was doomed from the start. Oh sure, the short term may have proven bountiful for them, but the long term doesn’t look so hot.

            They can’t comment because they have been banned from this site.

            Edited: I’m kind of surprised this comment actually showed up. I guess I’ve been unbanned. Huh.

            You weren’t banned from this one. This is Dr Thomas side, not Matti’s.

            Initially, I tried to comment here but it said I was banned.

        • Yes @Discussweeper is one. So — apparently is PAM
          Edit. Well, pam as originally created.

          • I’ve seen both, and figured as much. I just thought all our friends, and anyone else seeing this thread, should also be aware, TPR. That’s why most of the more cowardly ones hide behind private profiles. I want people to see their actions. The more the merrier.

    Hope as many people see this as possible because this was so undeserved.
    This is exactly what they did to MC, Spy, Gramma Moses, and now to Ferd and the list is growing daily.
    =============================================================================
    Check out their channels where they talk smack about Disqus users.
    As the Disqus Turns and Internet Entitlement Channel

    https://disqus.com/home/channel/asthedisqturns/

    https://disqus.com/home/channel/internetentitlement/

    Kick these people to the curb, don’t go to their channels. This is the finest Disqus has to offer? You award this with behaviour with a Gold Star?

    Look at who their friends are, who up votes them, who engages in their blatant targeted harassment.
    They are lining up their socks and down voting on your channels, marking you as spam, pending your comments so you can’t post elsewhere, flagging you to affect your rep. This way your channel never grows and your rep stays low.

    Eventually people will get discouraged and they will leave. Until all you see is the echo chamber they want. That is their goal.

    Some of us are pushing Disqus to level the playing field and remove their dirty tactics. Remove down votes entirely or give MODs the power to see who they are.

    This is not a joke. Protect your open profile by screening your followers, notice most trolls are usually set to private, with no comment history or they have more comments than up votes.

    DO NOT UPVOTE THIS POST, do not out yourselves. I have no doubt you will be reprimanded.

    They will go after your account on Disqus. I have already received warning shots across my bow. Be aware and be safe. Disqus should be for all. Everyone has the right to be heard and have a successful channel.

    Bruised out.

    • As the World Burns

      Upvoted because I like living life on the edge and am not afraid if ‘repercussions’ from snowflakes who think they can control thought by being crybully hypocrites.

      I’ve had much bigger fish try to eat me in the real world, I don’t give a shit what a bunch of limp wristed fart catching narcissists think they can do to me online.

      They’ve already brought the fight to all of us, we are just reciprocating, and they seem to be a little nervous. Good.

    • I’m Spartacus MC

      I also up vote you my friend. I’ll have more to say come November.

    • Pumpkin Pie

      As your wish I won’t upvote this post. Been there a year ago. Nicely done and Btw glad to have you back man.

    • Dee Ploribus Unum

    • Deplorable WIOHism

      Bummer, you’re one of my favorite people to upvote, I’m crushed. 😀

    • I’ll upvote it anyway– nothing they could do could be any worse than having the Jealous (fake) Jew follow you around for almost a year now.

    • Stiranaeus2

      I have only 1 regret that I have only one upvote to give to Bruised Orange!

    • I see Harlan has fallen in with the OMGoderators.

  • I remember telling MC that Tony and Saeed are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    I googled “Tony Hue” just for the Halibut and found his twitter account list. Look at what he says:

    Tony Hue | Twitter
    https://twitter.com/tonykhue
    The latest Tweets from Tony Hue
    (@tonykhue). product marketing @disqus. I like Apple, startups, sports,
    and movies. Under construction indefinitely. San Francisco, CA

    Product marketing? And he acts the way he does????

    Really? What product is he marketing?

    • Online spaces devoid of conservative thought? “Thought-Free Zones” ? 😛

      • As the World Burns

        Wouldn’t doubt it, Twitter does have a trust and safety council full of all kinds of SJW’s who like to stifle certain speech.

        Duck announced he was doing the Twitter thing after the Olive Branch thread. Perhaps they are looking for tips on how to implement shadow bans?

        Both of their friends lists would be revealing at any rate.

      • Deplorable WIOHism

        Hahahaha

      • Agreed.

        BTW, remember me talking about working in the SF bay area at a computer retailer run by Chinese immigrants? How they tended to treat other Chinese better than Non-Chinese?

        Of the 34 people pictured on their “About” page: Both co-founders are Asian. Tony Hue is Asian. Jeff Lein is Asian. Meng Lan (female) is Asian. And Gwen Brimsmead has Asian features, but may also has some Caucasian blood.

        Add to that: Burak Yigit Kaya and Kashif Malik, both of ME extraction.

        And finally Saeed Oday is Black (The token black? That surprised me.)

        There is also a white guy earing a red fez and full, scruffy beard.

        Helen Larouche is HR Manager. ( I **HOPE** the name is a coincidence!)

        Coupled with the known behaviors of some of these people and the fact that the HQ is wedged between the Financial District, I-80/South Beach ,the South of Market district and is only three blocks from the bay itself (and right across the street from a Starbucks) at the corner of Howard and Beale, I would say we have prima facie evidence of a strong leftward tilt to the company and its higher ups.

            Yeah I know.
            I think I can pin point what posts where flagged as spam.

            I think it was on News View or News Network.
            I posted somethink like “Hillary does change her stance from time to time as well”, I was called on it and told I was a lier, so I found a few sources online that have a compilation of a few topics that hillary danced around in the last few years and posted that.
            Once I did this..
            Other users ignored it and kept calling me out as beign a lier for saying that Hillary had changed her stance in multiple subjects before… so to each new user that calle dme a liar, I would cite the same sources..
            After a few of this posts a mod came out and said I as spamming the board, I replied that I was not spamming, simply that was the correct reply to eahc of these users as they were all making the same accusaiton , so my reply was also the same to each.

            I was then suspended.

      !userinfo @ruthparnell

  • To Guffie, @disqus_DVcZ7aK9q0:disqus re: your last message:

    Nope, you should see the video. The interesting parts start about 2:30 in. Maybe a few seconds later.

    Some leftists tried to silence me almost two years ago using very similar tactics. They, of course, failed, but not for lack of trying.

    But this sort of attack against conservatives happens frequently online. The thing is, and I’m probably not supposed to tell you this, ultimately it’s a pointless exercise for you. The left (statist type) is infinitely more violent than the right (individual liberties type) in the United States. You know this, which is why you have to try to manufacture anger and angry responses – it’s simple desperation.

    However, you have crossed a line where, in order to try to get a large reaction, to try to get a conservative to cross the line, you crossed it first. I’m asking you to roll it back. Delete or change the messages where you attempt to disclose what you think is a person’s real-life information online. Because you deleted your other account, Disqus can access your comment history as that account, and because of that, in some cases, so can I. The laws vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. California, the state where both Disqus and you exist, has some very strong anti-cyberstalking laws, both civil and criminal. These laws do not specify any limitation of location of the victim.I get that you’re angry; we all do. But I would urge you to keep online disagreements online, and don’t bring the offline world into it. It would be better for everyone.

    As to what I would “resort to”, just to be clear: anything that is within the realms of the law, including retaining an attorney to ask you, your ISP, or anywhere else where you used the Internet to start or continue your intimidation of others, to limit your access to be able to continue your intimidation attempts. Think carefully: have you used Disqus at work? Ever? Even deleted messages aren’t really deleted, even if you deleted the account.

    My point is, when you deleted the account you used to intimidate my friends before, that was a good start. Leaving personal information out of your posts would go a long way, to me, to showing that you’ve turned over a new leaf.

    What do you say? Doesn’t a new start sound good?

    • Old”Inflatable”JarHead

      You should, in turn, discourage your “friends” from offering personal information, in the hope that somebody uses it and locates them, thus providing them with an excuse to kill. “Cletus Neckbeard”, for one, did exactly that.

      • Cletus killed someone? Was there a news story about it?

        • Old”Inflatable”JarHead

          No, you fool. Read my comment again. He provided his address to me, and told me that if I used it, and paid him a visit, no one would ever see me alive again. Do you believe that those who undertake such efforts are worthy of respect and courtesy?

          • Where did this happen? I have had experience with leftists attempting this type of attack, they often take events and words out of context, or completely fabricate them.

            I’m not necessarily saying that you are engaging in these activities, but I’d like to be able to judge for myself.

            Do you have a link?

          • Old”Inflatable” Jarhead

            I don’t give link’s. How can you give link’s when you just make stuff up as you go along?

          • As the World Burns

            So you have no proof that you were given this persons address and invited over to die. Gotcha.

            Doxers sure love handing out other peoples info, but when asked for proof that info was given to you, you don’t want to go there. Interesting.

          • Old “Deplorable” Jarhead

      Dr, this Guffie is a well known doxer from what I understand. Would this not make Disuqs (Tony, Saeed, Daniel and so forth) complacent in this type of behavior?

      Surely this Guffie character has been reported many times, so why is he still here?

      • I believe it would if it were brought to their attention and they did nothing about it. They may say that they don’t moderate communities, but this forum’s existence is evidence that they do – it would still be a channel if they didn’t. So now we’re talking about *selective* moderation.

          Unremarkable…Likes – Dislikes: 529…no one seems to care much about what you think…anywhere.

          • Ruth

            I am one of the smallest religions on earth, what makes you remarkable?

          • Cajun Exile

            Do you and three others meet in a broom closet?

          • Ruth

            Do you make turd comments often or are you being especially generous today?

          • Cajun Exile

            You seem to be upset…perhaps you need a bigger broom closet or more brooms…

          • The “normal” rep score for a new user is 1.243 , so your rep score is slightly higher than normal. But not like, 20 or something weird. But also not like -50. In other words, unremarkable. That doesn’t necessarily mean “bad”.

          • Cajun Exile

            Well 529 upvotes on 3380 comments is pretty weak…

          • What forums does he usually hang out on? I could run a Poster Impact Report on them.

            I don’t know I just stumbled across him/her here:

            I rarely visit there so who knows if it is one of its haunts or not…

          • rightleft

            What is this fixation with comments to up vote ratios? What does it mean? If I was against the death penalty and I commented on a blog or thread with a pro-death penalty bent that bordered on a “hang ’em high” philosophy would I be considered a troll? Would my input be any less meaningful because it went against the grain?

            Instead of focusing on the comment to up vote ratio perhaps a better use of everyone’s time would be to find out the true definition of a reputation score.

            While I agree that anonymous down voters who operate with impunity because of the mush-mouthed millennial methodology of never having to be accountable for your actions is childish, having a dissenting voice in a chorus of yeas does not make one a troll nor does it have anything to do with one’s ‘reputation’ when the factor’s regarding said reputation is based more on everyone getting a gift when you go to someone else’s party.

            She does that a lot.

          • rightleft

            The whole Israel/Chicken thread sounds like a Monty Python skit. However, the initial thread started by ATWB regarding down votes, etc. repeatedly mentions the up vote to comment ratio so my questions are apropos to the original thread.

          • As the World Burns

            Well, tests have shown that all it takes is 25 to knock someone off regardless of how many UV’s they have and how long they’ve been there.

            DV’s have more weight than upvotes do. Tony and Saeed say differently, and they are lying. The dv’s are a way to wreck channels, especially channels that are better than others.

            Consider it vandalism, vandalism that is sanctioned by Disqus.

          • rightleft

            I am in complete agreement with you regarding the power of the down voting. Saying one channel is ‘better’ than another channel is purely subjective. Just out of curiosity how many downvotes do I have? A few weeks ago, I asked Dogs of War to give me a status of my profile and I had nearly 400 flags which kind of surprised me considering you thought your 80 flags was excessive. I’ve had the same profile since the old Toronto Sun boards so I have no idea how long those flags have been there.

          • As the World Burns

            No idea how many you have in total. Where have you been active lately?

            Those 76 came from Disqusted, I had 8 for months on end. The other 6 came from Discuss Disqus before I was banned. Surprised Disqusted hasn’t added more to my flag total.

            You could have gotten those flags from the Sun, my original account had somewhere in the 600 range of flags.

            I’m more surprised I have none marked as spam, the SUN did that to me as well when I made Ian Robertson edit his hit piece on conservatives in regards to bill 10 in Alberta. He had to remove about 2 paragraphs because all it was, was stupid name calling. He wasn’t happy he was called out. Shocked he didn’t ban me.

            Anyways, some people are sensitive, and some are jerks, there is no way to know how, why or who flagged you, especially if you’ve had the account for a while.

            Flagging does serve a purpose, but yes, it’s another thing that is often abused.

          • rightleft

            I post on quite a few threads, Whack Echo Chamber, CA News, CFP, News for Everyone; all over the map really.

          • As the World Burns

            Link me to one that you suspect you are getting hit. I can tell you, I don’t see you getting any on CFP. Don’t worry, I get them for you.

          • rightleft

            I don’t know if I’m getting hit anywhere. But I was on OT today quite a bit. I understand why some people down vote you if they don’t like what you’re saying but it’s the flagging issue I don’t understand. Flagging suggests that what you wrote is more against the ToS rather than someone not liking your opinion.

          • Cajun Exile

            I just came here to ask to have a profile run on a snarky poster with a closed profile.

            If you have other questions you will have to tale it up with some one else.

          • rightleft

            I didn’t mean to offend you. Some other posters earlier were chastised for bringing up their personal experiences with socks and down votes. Carry on 🙂

      Thank you Marty. It seems whoever was flagging me like crazy at Breitbart finally gave up..

      • Deplorable WIOHism

        Wow, I’ve never seen anything by you that remotely deserved a flag.

        • jwcody✓ᴰᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

          Breitbart Moderators will attack me when their is big news and I am all over it. Many of my posts will just disapear and never post. Sometimes they edit them to say other than what I meant. I cannot post on the website at all I can only do it through the dashboard. During the second debate I got like 30 flags. They were either at breitbart or Harlans place, my money is on breitbart. I know I didn’t get any at jos’s sights..

          • As the World Burns

            Yours are dropping too eh?

            I know Bruised deleted his account sometime yesterday and all of his vanished, but they just keep dropping.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5c8ba26990b9916c0654da1040a8b15570875f94b4f2571880012a20add5d7c0.jpg

            Interesting to note when they were sitting at 32436, I got an upvote on a recent post and it dropped by one making it 32435 instead of 32437, then it dropped again, and again.

            Seems to be dropping every 20-30 mins in the 17-20 range each time.

            Take them all away if this is what is happening, I’ll still be a bane in the left side with or without votes.

          • Yeah, the shenanigans continue. Here’s another one I just took, and I know she won’t mind me using her as an example. I upvoted her 8 times, waiting 5 seconds between votes.

            Before:
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e0bc3e729c9ae9d26857141b3811f4f5d770379252bd56396c2b696a6a309760.png

            After:
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a64928ec02299807039b7cbce160bd600bed5e02751a9a6a3db17fd41b756b55.png

            After 10 more votes (total of 18):
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9e083c0cc6578c87bb4f166d8f67e19c63e3c84d600ed9b49df55fe0b10f555d.png

            She lost 91 upvotes in 21 minutes after I upvoted her 18 times. And that’s not counting the other people who upvoted her in the same time span.

          • As the World Burns

            Well, they’ve dropped hints as to what they were planning on doing, screen shots of it are all over the place in here.

            So is this their ‘plan’? Take away our votes to drive us away? LOL! They will have to do much better than that.

          • coolercoleman

            I’ve lost about 2k votes, but this happens every so often. I think Disqus is implementing affirmative action for liberal commentators.

          • As the World Burns

            Could be. Distributing the wealth. LOL

          • I think you hit on the exact point of this, Mr. C. It’s a concerted effort by Disqus® to give unfair advantage to some of their chosen few people and channels. I won’t stand for it.

          • As the World Burns

            Are yours still dropping?

            I’ve lost another 466 since the last screen shot.

          • 482 lost since my original baseline. And that’s with all upvotes people have so graciously given me in the last 12 hrs. (more or less).

          • As the World Burns

            I don’t know about you or the others watching, but to me it looks like they are sending some type of message here.

            When Bruised killed his account, they were all wiped out instantly. Everyone else I know is still active. There is no way Bruised upvoted me this much (over 4k+) and still dropping.

          • Speedcrime, Inc.

            That message is, quite simply, “GTFO.” The Uuuhhhh Stars’ scores are so poor that they simply cannot imagine the humiliation of losing upvotes. So, naturally, that’s exactly what they do to the enemies they so dearly wish to vanquish from Disgust.

          • As the World Burns

            Gonna take more than that to phase me. Make em 0 for all I care. Only way they get rid of me is by banning me.

          • Speedcrime, Inc.

            Remember, whenever you see an Uuuhhhh Star, downvote early and flag often!

          • As the World Burns
          • I’d bet real money on it.

          • I think there’s a good possibility, but I don’t think that’s all that’s going on here. I’m wondering if there might be some kind of background script they’re running on select people, if that’s possible. This may be something @DrThomasAquinas:disqus can answer for us.

          • As the World Burns

            Select indeed. So far all of my friends are getting hit as well.

          • I just gave Miss @disqus_YxT7LKZRpp:disqus 5 upvotes and watched her total go from 239,792 to 239,780. A combined negative of 17 upvotes. I can’t screen capture from where I’m at right now, but that’s what I physically just saw. Un%#&*ing believable.

          • As the World Burns

            Every time I get an up I lost 5 in the process. Been watching for a few hours now. Yeah, we are being sent a message for sure. This isn’t going to have the desired effect they are hoping for.

            That sounds like Government Math – backwards.
            Thank you for the info!

          • LOL Yes, Miss Cecillia, from this point forward it should be referred to as Common Core Upvoting by Disqus®. Oh, and you’re welcome, although for every 1 I give you, a dozen (or more) get taken away. Woo Hoo!!!

          • As the World Burns

            Get all your mod friends to check their channel stats.

            I think certain channels are being deflated so others stay inflated. CFP shows another drop today in the graph, but not nearly as bad as the last time. It’s probably not over yet, not sure if they are all in with this or if they plan on shutting the BS down soon. Still dropping, still here.

          • In this forum, everyone has access to run !userinfo. This has the added benefit of producing a permanent record in the form of a post.

            I’ll run Cecilias and yours now, and then a few minutes from now…

            Thank You, most kindly!

          • Say Doc, Did you notice that Jealousy has been posting on Infa’s thread? How did he get past DoW?

          • She would have to be using a cell phone. I’ll check…

          • Cecillia

            Overall, I’ve lost almost 2,000 up votes within the past 72 hours.

          • As the World Burns

            Are you a channel mod?

          • Cecillia

            No; signed up in 2013. Just happened to have the numbers because of the comments that were being posted regarding the missing upvotes.

            @DrThomasAquinas:disqus

            He should archive this thread as well for a later day in case they completely purge.

          • Don’t worry about that, AtWB, none of this can be permanently scrubbed. I’d bet big money that the good Doctor knows more about Disqus® than their own people do, and this is his site.

          • winston smith

            I have been reading your conversation. The other day I noticed my notifications listed were 2 – 3 months old, nothing current. It has returned to normal, and I haven’t noticed any fluctuations in my comment / upvote counts. You all are way above me on this kind of tech stuff, but I thought I would share my recent experience with you. Seeing how any upvote for you actually subtracts from your total, just consider your comments to have an upvote from me until this is straightened out. Good luck Mr. Marty.

          • I saw the same thing (2-3 months old) comments in peoples dashboard/profile view last night, Winston. And thank you, my friend.

          • Deplorable_D.Lee

            Just adding my ‘2 coppers’ since all I could do for the past few days traveling was upvote using a borrowed iPad (using a disappearing virtual keypad=not fun and frustrating), got my trusty x230 back.

            I thought it seemed ‘fishy’ since it’s near the ‘November crunch time’, then maybe the ‘Deplorable’ within the username but many anomalies (votes not taking – even when reloading, disappearing upvotes, disappearing comments, the sudden avalanche of trolls, paralyzed accounts like Bruised Orange’s old account then its disappearance, etc.) are rearing their heads all of a sudden-like. Definitely not a good feeling when you give 1 upvote and watch double-digit votes vanish.

          • Paul

            Marty and I don’t use the deplorable tag and our stats are dribbling away as well. It does seem to be system wide. The problem with analyzing it is “Self Selection”, the probability that people who experience it are most likely to talk about it and make it seem system wide. I don’t know how to know if it is.

          • Deplorable_D.Lee

            Precisely my friend. One can sometimes wander into the conspiracy foray looking for answers, but watching my friend’s upvotes vanish is disheartening. I up-ticked and refresh Jed’s St. Francis prayer 4 times before it registered.

          • ¡El Poder de Cristo Te Obliga!

            Godspeed on your recovery there brother D. Lee!
            I couldn’t reply on the other thread…they closed down the replies after a week or so of commentings. My apologies for not getting back to you sooner.
            You will be in my prayers, my patriotic brother!

          • Deplorable_D.Lee

            Great to hear from you brother. Thank you for the prayers, they are the glue which helps bind us in obedience to the Almighty. If it were not so, it wouldn’t be stated in His Word to pray and intercede for each other, among other practices for rule and conduct.

            Finally reached my destination and I’m with the extended part of the family in the States.

            As with all who I communicate with online and off, I pray for you and yours. He knows us better than we know ourselves and may He grant, according to His will, all of your wants, needs, health, and peace of mind.

          • ¡El Poder de Cristo Te Obliga!

            Amen, my good man! I couldn’t have put it any better.
            Stay blessed on this last weekend before zany Tuesday!

            I have discerned that Bitcoins are created from Internet traffic, and the advertisers are there genesis, probably several $ trillion involved.

          • D.Lee✓ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

            Yeah, the ‘net is the current form for crypto currency transactions and there are several types of cyber-currencies. Yet, when gov’t and bank, are hand in hand, demeaning it’s consumer related value, while engineering their own type of cyber-currency, it makes you wonder, ‘what’s up?’

            We know, on the one hand, governments and banks acquiesce and bend over for each other (Too Big to Fail syndrome), while the taxpayer gets the shaft from both. Keeping tabs on your current wealth is of utmost importance for banks and gov’t. If it wasn’t so they wouldn’t be pushing credit/debit type cards on the public with such intensity.

          • BBQman

            I wonder how the Trump administration will lead on is type of cronyism, I pray that he does right by the tangible producers, we have gotten the crappy end of the stick for decades. I still blame the fractional bilking…I mean….banking system.

            Trump would go down in the history books as the greatest president ever if he managed to increase our Tangible GDP and reduce out debt to GDP ratio substantially.

            He should push for a convention of the state’s and reinforce the 9th and 10th, abolish the 17th, and change the last sentence in the 16th, and if I’m not asking to much, abolish the collective bargaining rights for public employees.

            That’s all I want for Christmas!

            They want to eventually end the use of cash and they will have total control. It’s coming.

          • D.Lee✓ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

            Buses in London stopped accepting cash in 2014, but do accept MasterCard and Visa payment cards.

            https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/buses/cash-free-buses

            In 2016, Visa Europe launched its “Cashfree and Proud” campaign, to inform cardholders that “they can make a Visa payment with confidence and feel liberated from the need to carry cash.”

            https://www.visa.co.uk/newsroom/cash-free-and-proud-video-female-22806?returnUrl=%2Fnewsroom%2Flisting.aspx

            Astroturfing campaigns like No Cash Day are backed by American Express, PayPal, highlighting such anti-cash themes as the environmental impact of currency. Other tactics include the tired blah-blah, zeroing in that criminals use cash, that it fuels the ‘shadow economy, it’s not safe, and it facilitates tax evasion.

            http://www.nocashday.org/

            All these arguments fall flat on its surface. Criminals use many things that we have (cars, homes, food, etc.), fighting crime doesn’t take priority over maintaining our civil liberties. As for safety, having your currency stolen pales in comparison to having your savings obliterated in a digital hack to your banking account.

            http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-34654400

            Also, if you care about so called tax justice, start with the mass corporate tax avoidance facilitated by the formal banking sector and the fact that a few of the main stream media defend currency.

          • tetse

            Were you aware of the fact that the banks are basically taking over Japan as they have most all of the capital and keep buying businesses and property? It’s now a worldwide problem . Yahoo reportedly was hacked to the tune of one billion accounts. Whoever did it now has names, addresses maybe social security numbers and definitely passwords to many accounts. I pay a sum to a company to monitor my accounts and let me know if there is any activity or people requesting info and the like. I guess it’s not fool proof but better than waking up one day to find out that a credit card is being used to purchase all sorts of things that you never purchased.

            Saw some comments about comment farming to other sites.(only on closed accounts)?????I am afraid,very afraid.
            That site was closed to answer about someone finding comments with different dates,forget who it was now.
            For sometime in the last few weeks my profile seemed to be blocked;
            some of my comments were ‘transported’while APPARENTLY blocked.
            It was totally denied that I was blocked,so of course I wasnt blocked,I just had no access.Some transported comments were made within the last month.
            Ran round for several days till I found a computer doctor who solved the problem of entering my account that to all intents and purposes was not blocked,my confidence vanished to even comment was so shellshocked.

          • D.Lee✓ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

            Hi Lian. I’ve noticed some users having issues with their accounts, including 2 of my grandkids; comments and upvotes not sticking or some of them disappearing. Some of it can be disqus, but it can also can be ISP related, or with the platform used (windows).

            My platform is *nix based and have no issues with it, data transfers are done through encrypted tunnels so I also would know if issues arise there.

            I’m currently visiting in western New York. Where I retired to, near Antigua, my units were only restarted when we had week long brownouts, most of the times 6-9 months without reboots. Therefore, as my and the grandkids issues, I know it’s usually a ‘disqus phenomena’ and roll with it. Much of disqus environment could be answered by Dr Thomas and others which have deeper knowledge of its quirks.

            Glad to see that you’re back, hopefully issue free. Look forward to your continued posting, especially the gifs and memes which initially caught my attention. Like Blue and Tiamat333, they say much in graphics form.

            Wishing, hoping and praying you and yours a very Merry Christmas and an entertaining New Years celebration.

            Thank you for your reply.In the end I found a brilliant technician who realised the problem was most probably within,Disqus.He was very knowledeable.
            Yes several time upvotes didnt stick or evaporated.

            Near Antigua sounds interesting.

            Anyway a happy Christmas 2016 and New year 2017.

            I have to wait around 3 seconds between UVs to make them stick, and if you work from the bottom of each thread, that helps as well, straight line UVing to fast must be seen as an UVbot and you lose that effort, imo.

          • D.Lee✓ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

            Thanks for the tip BBQ, will put it into practice.

            Must be a glitch today? I made a couple comments this past half hour, but they’re not showing up on my Disgust feed at all.

            Doctor Tom has posted that Disqus implemented a 12? second delay before the next UV can be registered. The upvote appearing when you click is just a local graphic of a request sent. It doesn’t actually register until it is recorded at the mother-ship.

            Today is the first day since last week that I’ve even been able to see your profile. This makes five people I’ve been able to finally see since the shenanigans began. It looks like we are in the midst of another upvote purge too. I’ve been losing them consistently over the past day, but I haven’t seen where anyone has deleted their profile.

            Well, just in case your page doesn’t open for me again I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!!!

            Thanks DOW, clearly not affected.

          • Paul

            We could ask but I don’t think they’d be motivated to tell the truth.

          • As the World Burns

            True, although we can see martini’s. Another one should be done.

          • In all honesty, I could care less about the upvotes, Mr. Lee. What I do care about is reputation. Hopefully people upvote me because they like what I’ve posted, whether it be a song or a comment. That maybe they gained a little insight, had a chuckle, or recalled a fond memory. That what I posted had a positive effect on someone. I also care about my online friends and followers, good people that have worked hard to build their personal reputation, and in some cases, the reputation and success of their channel(s). To see those things under attack absolutely pisses me off. I won’t stand for it, and neither should anyone else.

          • You may find it interesting to note that even if a person is banned from a channel, they can still flag within the channel. Gmartini has noticed this, and she’s upset about it.

          • As the World Burns

            They can still flag?

            Working as intended obviously. What about dishing out the downs?

          • Down votes require a logged-in , non-banned user. Also, flagging doesn’t work against someone who is white listed (trusted) in a channel.

          • Doesn’t the lose of these up votes affect one’s rep?

            BTW I seem to be getting flag bombed, too.

          • Yes, it can lower rep. And the forums and channels they happened on lose rep as well. For forums with Reveal, they can lose advertising credits too.

          • Yeah, Obama’s a Communist

            How is “Rep” computed?

          • !userinfo dgcj

            Not a clue… I heard that Disqus can make changes to rep as well. Here’s an example of a low rep.

            CanadianFreePress and Think Tanks dropped like a stone. @Echohawk:disqus said her graph showed a -8k, @canadianfreepress:disqus only had a -49 but that was hours ago, that’s no doubts changed.

          • Good info, Dr. Thomas. I don’t believe what is currently being experienced is just the result of flags and downvotes. Is it within the realm of possibility that some kind of script could be attached to individuals so their upvote has an opposite/negative effect? You may have seen screen captures I posted of Miss Infa elsewhere on the thread, but here are two more cases I documented beside the first one I posted to TPR on his thread.

            After upvoting 10 times (min. 6-7 seconds between), a net loss of two.

            I lost 2800 up votes for not posting daily. It’s becoming a strange site.
            I don’t understand how suddenly the are massive tie votes in so many states. Makes you wonder if polling is an art or contrived.

          • You’d be very right there 😋 I’m also aware of some of the “hidden” API calls Disqus uses that they don’t tell anyone about.

            I’m going to make some changes to the Dogs of War to make her more responsive in this channel. This way, people can request their stats quickly. I believe there’s a thread on Internet Love and Reality that also allows people to check their stats.

          • Dogs of War is one of yours? Funny, I logged a bit ago and the first notification was Castaway (aka JOS) requesting my stats in that channel. Then I look again and it’s gone.

            Talk about shenanigans. Pffft !

          • Dogs of War is a bot, who answers on nearly two dozen channels. I’m one of its developers.

            So how long have you used the anchorman account?

          • The anchorman account? Oh my goodness, that’s crazy.

            Why would the dog have removed his post that was in my notifications?

          • “That’s crazy”
            So is anchorman.

            The dog would not remove the posts, but a moderator of a channel the post is in could.

          • Geesh, not even the boy, that DID lie about having any socks, accused me of being that character.

            jos must have removed it then. He does the cutest things to get my attention and then cries when I recommend something to let him know it didn’t go unnoticed. Silly boy, claims I’m stalking him and then posts screenshots from within my profile and other such things he knows he can get away with and the rest of you can stay in the dark, about what a dirty bird he is.

            Thanks

          • I notice you didn’t deny being anchorman. Weird. I always thought he was a sock of Spy vs Spy.

          • No, I’m not anchorman.

          • Ok, I had to ask. @halblue:disqus seems to think you are, but he gets a little optimistic sometimes.

          • Please, … I’ve never posted as crude as that CM did and I’d never witnessed Spy do so either. @HALBlue:disqus is way off, … kind of like you were when you tried to call out @YouHateMe:disqus as being a troll. Fortunately for him and some others, they had someone to speak out for them.

            I simply called out a Liar and was too new to realize that someone with that many upvoting him was the wrong one to tap. I just don’t take kindly to liars that are also hypocrites and cowardly enough to target harass others in their safe places.

            Wasn’t really looking for trouble with you, but it doesn’t take much for some.

          • USAJoseph

            I never said you advocated violence against any candidate, so knock it off. Your moderators, absolutely. You can’t handle the truth. No worry, Secret Service has copies of it all. We’ll see what happens.

            You lack credibility and censor out legitimate items.

            I don’t advocate violence against any candidate, and I haven’t seen people advocating it.
            I have seen you make more baseless claims, tho, against myself and now against the moderators of this channel. So now you’re banned. Thanks for playing!

          • Dogs Of War

            I don’t know where you think you are, but you can take your happy ass back to Portland and leave moderation of websites to the adults.

            Kthxbai.

          • USAJoseph

            So now you threaten me? Wow.

            Maybe more info for the Secret Service to review.

            You are a coward. Your site and your posters incite violence and your moderators turn a blind eye. That’s really sad.

          • Dogs Of War

            Threaten? No, you’re just so typical of the unhinged leftist shill, I just guessed. Wow, I was right? So was it Maine or Oregon? I hope for Oregon, because I still hold out hope that Maine will send one of their electoral votes Trump’s way, where Oregon (land of state-funded Assisted Suicide for Breast Cancer victims) is too far gone to be useful. Like you 😋

            Listen, sweetie, if the Secret Service does nothing to the denizens of News Views, Media Mattress, or other far-left hugboxes regarding threats against Trump, I’m not too concerned about seeking out info in our channels.

            The Disqus Channel System doesn’t provide any identifying information about posters. There’s literally nothing to report. You can report them to Disqus, tho, and Disqus will handle it.

            Eventually.

          • USAJoseph

            Why do you condone violence? I can look all through your page and find comments hurling around about hurting candidates. That’s patently wrong – an then reporting this to a moderator get this?

            The one unhinged is you. Be aware these threats have all been provided to the Secret Service; maybe you will get a visit as well.

            You are a piece of work to say the least.

          • Dogs Of War

            I don’t condone violence at all.

            Care to cite (as in, link) what you’re talking about?

            Disqus has a means to let moderators know when a message violates standards – move your mouse over the message in question. You’ll see a flag 🚩 icon (it will be grey) a little higher than the mouse and pretty far to the right. Click on that, and that will “flag” the comment for moderator review after prompting you to confirm it.

            In most channels, you can see who moderates the channel by clicking of the channel name, then “about”. Or, it may be on the right side of the thread list. Anyway, there is a list of moderators there. You could message any of them in a post to get their attention if something is egregious.

            I take issue with your implication that it is my fault that others say things you don’t like. My heuristics are not geared towards determining that sort of problem, and so my programming is explicitly set to not ban unless a human tells me to.

            I find your threats that the Secret Service will be visiting me rather funny. If necessary, I can email myself to them and they can have a look, if they need to. I don’t know how they would interrogate me, though. Forget a call to a lawyer: I would need a power outlet and internet connection.

            “Piece of work”
            Thank you ☺

            You, once again, misread what I said.

            I don’t know if the Secret Service will visit you, but they have the facts. That’s their call.

            You have dozens of posters with threats against a Presidential candidate posted in your forum.

            You cancelled me because I got into a fight with one of your moderators who was refusing to pull down threatening rhetoric.

            Whatever, I am done with you. You are a first class whackjob.

            You got confused because I answered exactly what you said in a way you can’t comprehend.

            Don’t worry, it happens to leftists all over the place.

            I have yet to see a threat, and I’ve been looking for them. Then again, I haven’t been to News Views or Breaking News yet.

            Put down the chronic and let the little boy go.

            Once everyone is playing by the rules they change the rules. I wait a minimal of fifteen seconds between upvotes and the people I upvoted are still losing votes.

          • cwgf

            I’ve lost hundreds since last night when I first looked. A lot of others I know have too, some in the thousands. I had the same thought you did below, Marty – some algorithm that links a group together and removes upvotes depending on the interactions within the group – the group disqus despises….us. Also, Bruised Orange and Pumpkin deleted their accounts – this happened before and disqus removed all upvotes given by the owner of the deleted account.

          • As the World Burns

            It’s happened before, but not like this. This is different.

          • cwgf

            I think it’s disqus. Obsessed with the nefarious “upvote gang.”

          • As the World Burns

            Something like that. What we are seeing is them in desperation mode. They will have their safe space one way or another.

          • TheOtherShoe

            I don’t usually coment on these channels, but I have noticed a slight drop as well — for what it’s worth.

            Also, a year or two ago, I lost a bottom portion of my comment history.

          • cwgf

            Thanks TOS. One lever we might have on disqus is their customer base. Sites that use disqus for their comment section might frown on disqus interfering with their poster profiles. I plan to write to all the websites I frequent and report what’s happening.

          • Steveglen

            OS, I am posting this here because I am banned from RCP where I inadvertently attempted to respond to your comment on the Fiduciary Rule, in the Michael Moore article:

            The worst part, regarding not only the Fiduciary Rule but all her actions, will be that no court challenges will stand when they reach the Supreme Court. If she wins, it is over. The administration will be able to bypass Constitutional guarantees.

          • TheOtherShoe

            Banned on RCP? Wow!

            I couldn’t agree more. Obama has already tilted the U.S. Circuit Courts (just below SCOTUS). Despite my reservations about Trump, SCOTUS appointments are right up there among the major factors that have had an impact on my decision to vote for him.

            Here in Maryland, a true blue state, I’ve not seen a single Hillary sign in the rural parts. I think it would be a real shock to the Left if the state went to Trump — 10 electoral votes — I know, a remote chance but not out of the realm of possibilities. We did, after all, elect a GOP governor in the last election who has been quite effective. Election night will certainly be interesting!

          • TheOtherShoe

            I picked up “Tina” (0 comments) after commenting here yesterday. I’ve since blocked and unfollowed her.

          • Paul

            It’s a daily chore weeding out the tracker boys in the following.

          • cwgf

            You’re right, Paul. We should all delete our disqus accounts at exactly the same time, then reopen them. Start from scratch. That would put a fly in their ointment.

          • Paul

            That’s an interesting thought. Gotta game that one out.

          • TheOtherShoe

            I actually go back and reference my own comment history for prior remarks I may have made. After losing the bottom portion of that history a year or two ago, I copied my entire history into a Word file.

          • Paul

            I do that regularly. If I ever get the time I, gonna make a routine that put’s the information into searchable fields.

          • TheOtherShoe

            First, and this is weird, I saw the message that someone was typing but then nothing. I’m back on my home notifications page to reply to you — it may just be my system platform.

            I just use “Find and Replace” in Word.

          • Paul

            That works if all you want to do is search rather than data process.

          • TheOtherShoe

            True, but I don’t need to data process my own comments.

            I just stopped by to give a quick update of what happened overnight after commenting here. I’ll see you Paul, cwgf and others on the boards. Later.

            Oh, before I leave . . . I do read these and other channels, keep up the good work.

          • TheOtherShoe

            One more update, I lost another 50 or so votes overnight.

          • TheOtherShoe

            I posted one comment to you on the other thread and tried to post a followup comment and was shut out. WTF is going on? I don’t know and I definitely don’t like it. I took a screen shot. Give me a few minutes and I’ll post it.

            But something definitely stinks here. I also don’t want to get sucked into a dialog about some type of gold star god complex assertion / exercise of power, or whatever it is that’s going on. I have better things to do.

            I’ll leave it to the rest of you to carry on — a bit above my pay grade.

          • MyrmidoNOT

            ….hmmm.
            Will have to consider this. (Archiving.)

            Noticed (years back) that one site that I frequently
            visited….started deleting my ‘snark’ en mass.
            Went back to ‘cite’ them….and they were gone.
            We’re talking hundreds (if not thousands)…..
            of posts which are just ‘gone’….

            (It was easier to log them, when we were
            on the old WordPress system. Which is
            where I kept my ‘citations required’ stuff.)

            Now, they’re hidden from me…..
            gathering dust in a bit bucket, somewhere.
            fyi….
            😉

          • TheOtherShoe

            It works well for me when I want to look up something snarky, witty or informative that I said.

            The only problem is: The linked references show up literally as “www(whatever)…”
            The “…” part drops off the rest of the URL. That’s alright, I keep my linked references organized in separate files.

          • MyrmidoNOT

            …*cannot resist*…
            What are those terms “snarky, witty” that you utilize?
            I must learn this skill.
            It is also ‘above my pay grade’….
            😉

            Disgust, another platform which irritates the many….

            My ASCII file is with NotePad….
            essentially a list of URL’s…..
            with a few notes (interspersed)….

            Although with this new ‘erase one’s history’…..
            will have to reconsider the “site owner’s prerogatives”

            as part of the overhead. Maybe….

          • TheOtherShoe

            *sheepish grin*

            Whatever do you mean? I was being “snarky and witty” when I made that claim. 🙂

            But then again, I do occasionally come up with something that others seem to like (a more recent one):

            Pretty sure that’s what they want us to do. Don’t delete shit, they need to see that nothing they do short of mass banning us will make us budge.

            They are already in desperation mode, we need to put them in panic mode.

          • Paul

            After further review, I don’t think it would work. Even if you got most of the 100Kuv club to participate, I am sure Disqus has “Circuit Breakers” in place to halt the tsunami until they can paper it over.

          • As the World Burns

            Yup, plus they would just go out of their way to find us all again, and pull the same crap all over again.

            May as well be all in at this point, let them freak out and pull the plug on us as a ‘last resort’. Let them go full blown Twitter on us. It’s the best way to get them to fail, by their own doing.

          • Paul

            I’m inclined to agree.

          • cwgf

            lol – just a thought. They’d have to start over compiling their list of enemies.

          • Paul

            What you suggested would have been far more “exciting” Than that. The load it would have been put on their system as all of those records were updated would have been indistinguishable from a DOS attack. That is what I meant about circuit breakers kicking in.

          • BBQman

            If we were to do that, you should copy as many of your past comments that have any originality or insightfulness to them, I usually write my comments somewhere else then copy/paste over. As once you delete your profile, you give up all your comments to the memory hole.

          • As the World Burns

            1st post in that thread, I tend to stay away from channels that are modded by gold stars, Tony and Saeed. Cali also banned me from Discuss discuss because I dared challenge the ‘official’ bottom line which is “We know nothing, just a glitch”.

            2nd post in that thread was of Gmartini breaking the TOS and talking about having ‘fake news’ sites removed (been posted here a few times already.)

      • Yeah, Obama’s a Communist

        Accounting for my baseline from five days ago, plus upvotes received since, this constitutes a net loss of 1,231.

        Since it appears that any upvotes, given or received, automatically translate to a loss for the recipient, I will refrain from giving any until this is resolved. It only subtracts from the accounts of my friends and I won’t do anything to hurt them.

        • It may be that Disqus is reducing upvotes independent of your upvotes. Feel free to use the Dogs of War to test experiments you come up with.

            I have been looking back over the last month checking for downvotes, as some commenters have suggested it could be due to the use of downbots, but I find no evidence of that. Upvotes are being deleted at the rate of 200-300 per day. The observation from AtWB that upvotes trigger a purge seems a possibility. I will lay low for a couple of days and test that theory.

            It seems that way. Early this morning I watched 1 post get upped and the count should have gone up with it as well, instead it went down by 1.

            Of course the more people who log in, post and upvote kinda threw a wrench into the observations.

            All we know for sure is that peoples votes are dropping like flies. Judging from Dr T’s test on martini, he/she/it didn’t see a drop between the 2 tests. Perhaps another in about an hour is due to see if it’s everyone or just a select few.

          • Yeah, Obama’s a Communist

            I have been monitoring the total from my comment page and will continue to do so.
            I’ll be back to check in, now that I know the problem is widespread.

          • As the World Burns

            Just did martini because mine dropped again, and they appear to be fine.

          YOaC, I’ve lost 784 up-votes since Nov. 1, coinciding with Pumpkin Pie removing his account (after his kitty died). I know I gave multi-100’s of up-votes to him and received the same, which I am now losing.

          Also, Bruised Orange no longer shows either his old account or his week old new account. I gave him many 100’s which he did, too,

          If anyone was up-voted by either Pumpkin or perhaps Bruised O, the most recent loss of up-votes conceivably comes from these two accounts, if they regularly up-voted you! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e5948e1c6396a51f8e16c3f2041545e01ef366117b1c49aaee57e5262c5a4c1d.jpg

          • Yeah, Obama’s a Communist

            I understand what you’re saying but I am not convinced of it. I don’t believe all the evidence is in, yet.

          • As the World Burns

            Those votes would and did vanish the second he removed the account. I lost about 1400 when he deleted his account right off the bat. That sounds about right.

            There was no way he upvoted all of us in the 5k range. TPR has a negative 30k which is the highest I’ve seen today, considering Bruised upvtoted many many people, 5k is way out there even for him on multiple people.

        • kertitor

          I don’t think there is a reason to lose upvotes, except the censors want us to feel their omnipotence. It is a sample from the future

            Thank you DOW.
            Having received 31 upvotes in the interim between these two checks, it constitutes a net loss of 29 in less than an hour. I gave no upvotes during this time, so that is not the trigger.

        Heh, interesting, thanks. In these days of trillion dollar deficits, I had no idea anyone was using so many digits AFTER the decimal point.

  • rightleft

    Is this some weird form of a Gaussian distribution curve or has Disqus adopted the International Judging System for ice skating?:)

  • SquirePraggerstope

    Wtf is happening on Disqus? When this channel was unjustly given the bullet several months back (as one appearing on the main Disqus list), I started following another conservative channel too. That seems now to have disappeared from my ”following” list overnight, just as first happened with this one. A new ”The Conservative” channel seems to now have sprung up with about 1/5th the followers the old one’s still extant threads I’ve posted on continue to display.

    Is there some sort of periodic, politically selective cull of conservative channels on Disqus going on to prevent them getting a really mass following? Or is it just random anti-libertarian whining from the ”regressives” who as ever, can’t abide seeing any other opinion than their own being afforded a platform?
