    BDC "Waves White Flag" and Signals End to Forum, Bans New Registrants From Posting

    in a move that will effectively mean the end of the Forum, BDC has banned new registrants from posting anywhere on BDC.

    The following is from my friend "Grim". BDC was so afraid of the detailed, scientific arguments he has made for the last five years here, that they have taken the final step of killing their own forum to prevent him from posting.

    Here is Grims final post:

    "How far will the trolls that control BDC go to keep posts that expose the truth off the boards?

    As far as it takes, including the complete destruction of the forum.

    Those of you that have posted here for several years know this forum has declined in activity and new members from the heyday where there were thousands of posts a day to the pitiful dribble of activity we now see.

    This can be directly attributed to the changes that BDC has made over several iterations of new and “improved” forum software. These Improvements added nothing, yet eliminated features and capabilities, and specifically restricted visibility of threads that were going viral.

    They even stopped Google and other web search engines from spidering the forum, so now you will never get a forum page returned by a search, even if it is a specific search on a phrase “in quotes” directly from a post. All of these changes resulted in reduced posts, reduced views, reduced new users, and therefore reduced the Boston Globe’s advertising revenues.

    But those pesky posters that were the “problem” persisted, even through constant banning of screen names, neat tricks like creating a separate data base generating a special version of the forum for the pesky posters to see when they logged in, which the general forum posters did not see, to random pulling of threads. We didn’t like it, but we didn’t care, we kept on reposting and recreating screen names, whatever it took.

    But now they have invoked the ultimate poison pill. If you create a new user name, it welcomes you to the forum, but when you go to log in, it does not recognize the user and password combination. If you ask for a new password, it sends a link to your email as expected, allowing you to change the password, but still will not allow a log in.

    I have tried numerous different email accounts, mail.com, yahoo, gmail.com, and logged in from numerous locations on PC’s with IP addresses unknown to BDC, so I am confident they are not aware who is creating a new screen name, so they are amazingly not allowing any new users to register and log in, just to keep us pesky posters off.

    BDC is willing to allow attrition to completely destroy a supposed revenue generator to suppress information their “masters” don’t want to be mainstreamed.

    Don’t believe it? Try it for yourself."

    Dirty tricks, like above, have happened to me for over six years. I've been banned 20-30 times for posting information that was readily available from credible news sources.

    I'm certain that I'll be "neutralized" shortly. BDC has taken the only step availble, aside from shutting down the Forum overnmight. This is further confirmation of the complete supression of the truth by the mainstream media whoares like BDC and the Globe.

    People need to realize, if they can shut down Grim's or MY freedom of speech, they can shut down YOUR freedom of speech too.

    If true it is quite unfortunate. But private companies do not have to afford you freedom of speech. There is no right to a BDC forum.

    And there is no reason to read the BDC Forum when it prevents the truth from being exposed.

    It is clear that the BDC was getting sick of loosing every progressive argument over every issue that spewed forth from the Obama regime.  Don't blame them for not continuing to fund and undermining of their support for Obama and socialism in general.

    Might be just a bug not a conspiracy

    According to reader "HowDoYouLikeMeNow" reader "Grim" says the Globe is "killing their own [National] forum." However, what he found may be just a bug. Those who frequent the Local forum found a bug weeks ago. After around mid-September, it was occurring in many Login sequences, including those for comments on articles. A couple of weeks ago it was fixed in most places but still afflicts ones in Forum pages.

    To bypass the bug, first mark and copy the URL (or address) you are viewing. If no login box is visible, click on "Log in" or one of the big buttons to make one appear. When a Login box is in view, click the line saying "Please click here to create your password." Then, under "Log in with your account," fill in the fields and click the Login button there. Once the Welcome page appears, paste the copied URL (or address) to return to the point where you left off.

    And you two are SO  blinded by your own self-induced legend if you truly believe that this little, insignificant, forum is so vital a platform to you in getting your message out.  You are nothing on these boards, just like the rest of us...get used to it and let some air out of your ego's.

    Nobody said you couldn't create a new account.

    We said YOU CAN'T POST HERE WITH A NEW ACCOUNT.

    Of course it does, puuke. I've been on this forum LONG before you were ed to vomit your lies.

    It started with major news "stories" off of the home page. About 3 months ago, BDC decided they didn't want me to post the truth there, so they disabled my ability to post there.

    They have abviously decided to pull the plug completely from their Forum, allowing it to die a slow death, even though it means lost revenue for them.

    That's waving the white flag, punk.

    Greg, do you really think he hasn't tried everything? Just so you know, Grim is a network consultant. He has tried different computers, different IP adresses, you name it.

    You simply cannot Register a new account and POST with it. You can, however, create a new account.

    We're not blinded by anything, unlike the dumb sheep who have no idea of what's actually happening.

    We've been posting here for many years, long before YOU were here. It's been well documented that BDC has crippled this forum comapred to what it used to be. I've been banned 30 or so times for posting stories they didn't want sheep like you hearing about.

    Stories like CIA gun running to Mexican Drug Cartels back in 2005. Looks like I was only SIX YEARS AHEAD OF THE "NEWS" FINALLY REACHING THE DUMBED DOWN SHEEP, LIKE YOU.

    They even stoppped Google from including it in search results, which costs them advertising revenue.

    The word has gone out to stop the truth from getting out anywhere in the elite criminal controlled whoare media. We know that.

    We also know that sheep like you, are too dumbed down to be able to comprehend what is happening around you. We don't care about you. We only care about people who are not brain dead.

    It's not a bug.

    Let me spell it out to you because you apparently didn't understand the first time.

    You can register a new account the way you always could. I know this because I've been banned more than 30 times and have gone though this process enough so I'm just a wee bit familiar with it.

    The problem is that BDC will not allow any new member to post on the forums.

    BTW, Grim is a long time network consultant and has some clue about stuff like this.

    As I see it this is a forum that is part of the Boston Globe.  They own it, oversee it's activities and if they decide they don't want it anymore who are we to tell them what to do with what's theirs?  I too post a bit on here and sometimes I too run afoul of the P.C. police and get booted.  So what!  I have a little fun, get to give my thoughts and ideas on things and interact with other on the board once in a while.  If this writer is so smart and knowledeable, as I'm sure he is, then perhaps he needs his own venue for spewing forth his truths.  Go for it pal!
