Just thought I'd give a little update.... I briefly turned my Alexa toolbar back on and found that the Diner's US ranking has dropped to 122K...

He has been a bit quiet about all the claims of skyrocketing popularity change as of late....I guess now we know why. About as fair weather a personality as it gets. Anyone catch his recent temper tantrum over "Its mine, I pay the bills, I'll do whatever I want!!"?

I responded saying exactly what I felt about such behavior and what age of child it resembled, and what it says about the quality of ones ideas that this is excuse used to make sure there aren't any others. It will be deep sixed of course. But probably not before he reads it.  ;D ;D

Here it all is in a nutshell. It is not enough that they control us on the diner. We are now told how we have to post here as well.

    Yesterday was the first time that I deleted the a myself; may not be be the last.   I am not at all sure that in dealing with trolls, the squeeze is worth the juice.

While most of the Admins have real difficulty with sending posting to the Duly Noted & Filed folder, I do not have this problem.

Once I decided enough was enough here, I settled on doing what everybody else who runs a blog does to keep the Commentariat from spinning out of control, which was to get rid of posting designed to screw up the board.

Let me be clear here.  If your post contains a complaint about "censorship", it will never see the light of day, so don't bother complaining.

If I can't find anything worthwhile in the post which has not already been hashed over 6 ways from Sunday, it also probably gets duly noted and filed.

If the tone is obnoxious, DN & F too!

If you insult me or any of the other Admins, DN & F!

If I just happen to be pissed off and have a low tolerance day, DN & F for you!  LOL.

Its MY **** Blog!  I pay the bills here!  Stick it where the SUN  :icon_sunny: Don't Shine if you don't like it, or better yet start your OWN **** Blog!

As far as Admins setting an example of Righteous Behavior, I do support that idea, and I am trying to uphold it myself.  However, Surly continues to read the Sewer, which I do not do.  So he sees the vitriole pitched there, and he reacts to that.  If it gets pitched out on that board, it is fair game for an Admin here to respond in kind if he so chooses to do so.  You reap what you sow.  Play Nice on your Board, we will play nice here.  Pitch Napalm on yours, expect to get Napalmed back here.

That is all she wrote.

RE

Again, as stated yesterday it escapes me as to how anyone can function over there unless they want to kiss the asses of those **** imbeciles and nod in agreement with their every utterance. I suppose you could just read their **** for laughs on occasion, but there buffoonery is hardly unique.

It just isn't a forum any longer, its a cesspool of turd worship. Just listen to that blowhard in the above rant, he says he is cleaning up his act as an admin.  :D ;D ;D ::)

It's a f.u.c.k.ing Mad House!

Now I see why the fearless squealer told me to "stuff it" when I offered him Alexa advice.

It has become obvious that he already knew how simple it was to manipulate Alexa - because he was in the middle of it !!! 

Most serious webmasters take Alexa with a grain of salt because the #'s are so easy to manipulate. Most folk do it to get more $$ for their ads, but the bossman is doing it to misrepresent his popularity to members and allies who still support him.

Anyone with one live brain cell can look at the Diners recent Alexa climb from 800k to 400k (and associated pageviews and time on site ToS) and conclude they are being manipulated.  Not one thing has changed about the Diner since Alexa 800k - still get the looong redirect from main page doomsteaddiner.net. Stll has obscure navigation (brown text on brown background duh) and long outdated articles as masthead (new visitor killer) -- then trying to get to forum gives you another redirect. Arriving at forum, you're greeted with the picture of a person who looks like they just crawled from a dumpster after a week long wiskey binge.  Really inviting to newcomers, lol.

But boss wants everyone to believe that suddenly,  visitors who before bounced at 70% suddenly want to hang around twice as much (bounce 38%) despite the same horrible layout and loooong redirects. And not only do they suddenly want to stay, but they decided to start visiting more than twice as many pages (4 vs 1.8 before).  And finally, the stat that screams manipulation - these same newly energized visitors decided to spend 400% more time on the Diner. (from about 1.8 minutes to 8 minutes, lol).

Since the (not so) secret to manipulate Alexa is to install Alexa toolbar the stats leave little doubt that the Diners new Alexa bonanza isn't due to Diners newfound popularity with visitors, but to someone who spends a lot of time surfing the Diner installing an Alexa toolbar.

Most folks who employ the little Alexa booster know enough to be sure not to change other stats too radically or quickly, as these stats are mostly impacted by site makeovers, or similar radical changes.

The Diner remains the same ole boring empty barn - just the boss decided to  try to stem the exodus by tricking the members into staying to "ride the wave".  Got surfboards? - lol.

Just thought I'd give a little update.... I briefly turned my Alexa toolbar back on and found that the Diner's US ranking has dropped to 122K...

I caught the odor of mendacity from him right at the beginning and waited for the money and censorship to assert itself.
Congratulations on that.  I must admit I was taken in by the fact that he admitted to some of his faults, e.g. being banned as a troll on other boards, so I figured he was honest but flawed, but hey, aren't the best of us?  It wasn't until the whole spying on MKing affair that I started to have doubts.

The Diner using the excuse of foul language for deleting my replies to his attacks is a sick low life liar. I purposely refrained from any to be sure of presenting my view of him to the forum.

As pointed out earlier trying to argue or talk reason to those sickos is impossible.

He can make the sweet lovely statement that I lifted my head from Mking's crotch to make a posting, isn't he sweet and well mannered, but he won't allow foul language on the Forum. He will have none of it.

What a sick, ridiculous, pathetic excuse for a man. Those sick disgusting admins at DD are beyond description for hypocrisy and lack of backbone and character, but he is the crown prince of the entire lot.

Anyone that has put in the time and work to amass the wealth required to purchase such "land" doesn't typically just give it away to a stranger, do they?
 

Not in my experience. Folks who understand what working for gain means....also understand that they can't bestow that ability onto someone else by handing them stuff. Same problem with kids, hand them everything they want and they respect nothing.

I have replied to the posting made on the diner this morning about me, and replied to them but they will not publish them. I found yours to be particularly biased and demeaning to me and responded appropriately.

I'm terribly sorry, I think see what you mean, I didn't mean you GO when I used the word "you", I meant people in general, I hope I rewrote it appropriately:

C'mon, Surly, GO, play nice....  GO was just being a little sarcastic, you don't have to go ballistic on him, Surly....

What you're missing, GO, is it's not an either/or proposition.  FIRST one should make sure one's necessities are covered, THEN make sure one have the means to defend then, and FINALLY put one's excess wealth into gold and silver.  Okay if someone is very poor they might have to choose, but right now the best return on one's investment is food.  It still is an incredible bargain that one can buy enough calories for a year in bulk grains working less than a week at a minimum wage job.  And it's better to risk having someone take one's food than trying to take food from someone else and finding that no one has any.

If that's not the problem, please let me know.  I don't mean to hurt your feelings, and I don't need or want a censor in the way of understanding the problem.

I would love to make a bet that within say 10 months from today, that work will be referenced by someone RE quotes or sites, it will be argued against or for, it'll be referenced by the Wall Street journal in one form of fashion, certainly it will show up at the national professional conferences, or doomer sites, or resilience.org or any of the happy mcdoomstere forums.

Bets require character on the part of both parties, and RE has pretty much proven that he and his sycophants don't have an ounce of that.
I wouldn't take that bet at 100:1 odds  ;D

While I will miss your presence, I look forward to the results.

I left out a reminder that they are "selling" SUN as some sort of "investment opportunity".  In reality, it's more like a donation.  I suppose I might seriously consider making a donation like this if I had as much wealth as RE says he has. What is really holding the boy back? Just do it rich boy.
Of course it's a donation!  That's why RE applied for 501c3 tax-exempt status.  It's pretty much an admission that the enterprise can't make a profit from the start and needs a special tax break from the government.

I have replied to the posting made on the diner this morning about me, and replied to them but they will not publish them. I found yours to be particularly biased and demeaning to me and responded appropriately.

I've grown a few Japanese maples on my property and I really enjoy just looking at them.  I especially enjoy viewing two of these accent-lighted trees while sitting in my ceiling-fanned screened-in porch  at night while sipping a nice glass of red wine.  In fact, that is what I am doing right now, typing on my tablet while listening to Steely Dan tunes coming through my weather-resistant outdoor speakers...and gazing at these beautiful maroon-leaf draped trees that also have a jaw-dropping base of blue rug juniper surrounding them.  Absolutely marvelous....and I planted and nurtured ALL of this.  I suppose I consider myself a "DOer" in this respect.

That's it... we need to sit back, take a deep breath, get the "OM" out of "DOOMER" and become "DOER"s  :-D
