  1. My opinion of this site has been shattered. Elizabeth Liddle would be ashamed

    I am an admin. Yet I cannot even post any new article.

  2. I’m getting a (thoroughly useless!) WordPress error when accessing via the Samsung Internet browser on my tablet. “There has been a critical error on your website”. That’s some top-flight diagnostics, right there!

    Firefox is OK. Nothing further to offer, I’m afraid – the problem may actually reside in the browser, not WP or the site.

  3. Allan Miller,

    I’m not seeing problems with “firefox” or with “konqueror” (chromium based).

    When I login, it does tell me that the login page is insecure. Perhaps the samsung browser is objecting to that.

    Yet you acted like a child & refused to be an admin or anything official at TSZ anymore after your ill-judged making of a yahoo an “author” here. Even after I and a couple of others batted for you, the response was pathetic and self-loathing! You wouldn’t deign to allow yourself to be “reinstated” after being “insulted” & instead pouted with wounded pride that that that ship had sailed. Such a poor reflection both on IDism & the “cynical religion” you’ve been pushing & promoting at TSZ for bouts of many months.

    There’s a better way forward, which is to drop IDism entirely and altogether. How about it, Mung, Amen?

    I can’t agree to align myself with your lies.

    Cheers, yes, Firefox is OK. Unfortunately, it’s a terrible browser on a tablet! Used to be my favourite, but they’ve faffed it beyond usefulness now, for me.

    Private: Do Evolutionists Wear Fur
    Posted on December 9, 2020 by phoodoo
    In a recent blog post, Jeb Fosler writes about a incident written by Fred Bledsoe about the former director of the National Center for Science Education’s, Eugenie Scott, attending WonderCon in Anaheim California. According to an associate of Bledsoe’s it appeared Scott had had a few too many White Russians, and she began suggesting that perhaps honey bees could be trained to use as weapons against creationists and other religious groups, who attend seminars.

    Fosler writes Bledsoe stated that a collegue overheard Scott cackling madly whilst suggesting that if you took some common honey bees, and bred them with some aggressive Africanized bees, you could them train them to recognize the scents of frankincense and myrrh, and spikenard, which she said is one good way to recognize religious leanings, as well as some brands of soap.The bees wouldn’t need to kill anyone, they would just sting noses, and earlobes and other visible areas, and then those victims would be easily recognizable and they could then be targeted for other ridicule while they are shopping or at Starbucks.

    Also she mentioned that her daughter once thought of joining an Ashram in New York, and that if she ever did that, she would personally hire someone to

    I didn’t post this then remove it, so who did?

  8. phoodoo,

    A couple of my old drafts appeared today too, with a Private: prefix. I don’t think anyone else can see them.

  9. Allan Miller,

    Here is the really weird part-I don’t even remember drafting that, but now that I read it it sure is funny, I wonder why I didn’t post it?

    Yeah, my unseen posts were some of my best work too …

  11. phoodoo,

    It seems that a bunch of draft posts were moved to published private posts. But I think you can only see the ones that you authored. As an admin, I can see all 91 of them. And they all have today’s date, which is annoying since they were old drafts.

    I don’t know what happened. Perhaps Alan knows. It may be due to a software update, but that’s just a wild guess.

  12. Neil Rickert,

    An old glitch has reappeared too – editing a comment causes it to disappear. The warning this might happen (which I should have spotted) is when you get the opportunity to edit more than just the text.

  13. Allan Miller,
    Yes that was me, thinking I could clear old draft posts to the “private” folder, not realising they would appear visible to authors and admins. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  14. Allan Miller,
    Have reinstalled the plugin and it seems to be working OK for my sock. There was an update for WordPress a few days ago so that may have affected things.

  15. Hi Alan, I’ve attached the screenshot I mentioned below.

    I’ve lived with it for a good while now and it hasn’t caused me much of a problem but if there is an easy fix I’d appreciate it being resolved.

  16. I have a bit of a problem when posting comments. There is an “upload file” banner obscuring the edit box above the comments box on my page.

    Yes, I see that too. But I’m not sure why you see it as a problem. Can’t you just ignore it?

    What I call “edit box” is what you are calling “comments box”.

    What is obscured by that banner appears to just be an “upload” button. And since you just uploaded an image, I don’t see that as causing you a problem.

    To illustrate what Alan was suggesting, I used italics for quoting you in this reply. To use italics, I just did <em> — text to quote — </em>

  17. CharlieM,
    Like Neil, I’m not sure what your problem is. Yes, the layout is a bit messy but the button functions.

    You mention editing but my suggestion was something to bear in mind for future comments. HTML tags are enabled so you can use “em” and “i” (displays as italic) “strong” displays as bold type. I’m sure there’s a list somewhere. “a href=”link” is about the only other one I use.

    PS @ Neil

    How do you display arrows in text without them behaving as tags?

  18. Alan Fox: How do you display arrows in text without them behaving as tags?

    I think you are asking how I did <em>

    For that, I used &lt;em&gt;

    And if you want to know how I did that — go to the comments page, and use “Quick Edit” to see the source. (Sorry, I think only moderators can do that).
