Comment Re:It's not rigged, you're just LOSING (Score 1) 297

The statement being copied went something like "Stein raised more money this weekend than she did down the whole home stretch of her campaign" -- the point being not to compare how much, but rather how FAST it was raised. And that is indeed a good point. If she can raise $3M in one holiday weekend, how could she not raise similar amounts that fast at least occasionally all last year?

That's why I think the guy who pointed out it's probably a guess-whose-bot doing the donating is likely correct.

Someone noted that the pace at which the money is coming in indicates a bot, not real humans, so is probably almost entirely from a single source. I leave it to your imagination who that that might be...

Also odd how ...curiously nonspecific... is her statement about what will be done with any leftover funds. I translate this as "convenient way to refill my war chest".

And funny how the whole notion didn't get serious until it was almost too late to do anything about it, even if a recount were called for.

I had regarded Stein as honest, if politically misguided. I may have to reassess that.

I block all their tracking and ads, even the ugly brown embedded ones (or were they rust coloured? Don't recall) but still want to support the site. If enabling ads is the only way, then they lose. Ad trackers will not be allowed.

Journal Journal: No more /. subscriptions? 2

I realized that I had not topped up my /. subscription in some time and went to do so. Saw this:

"Please Note: Buying or gifting of a new subscription is not available
at the moment. We apologize for the inconvenience. This downtime though
does not effect your current active subscription in any way. We will
keep you posted on the latest"

I'm wondering if the determination that "7% of respondents believe in lizard people" was actually those who said "I don't know, there could be" which is hardly a statement of belief, but isn't an outright negation so was recorded as the opposite of "No". That would be in line with pollsters today, anyway.
