New Comments System

66

You might have noticed that most of the comments on this site stopped displaying earlier last week. After attempting several solutions to get things working again, I finally implemented a new comments system that will hopefully be more stable and efficient in the long run. Although several commercial solutions are available (i.e. Disqus), I went for a comments system that did NOT require registration or login through a social network and that did NOT send information to a shady third party server.

While I was able to salvage the 150,000+ comments that were accumulated since 2008, the “likes” were unfortunately wiped off and reset to zero. This new system has however some new features that you might enjoy such as:

  • Option to sign up for e-mail notifications upon comment replies
  • Option to share individual comments on social networks
  • Option to upvote AND downvote comments
  • “Load More Comments” button displays more comments on the same page instead of having to reload a new page

As an additional tweak, comments are now sorted by “most voted” by default, which might help keep things fresh and relevant. However, options to sort comments by oldest first or newest first are still nevertheless available. So feel free to test out the comments and let me know if you encounter issues.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

Happy New Year Vigilant! And thanks for all the great work you do! I also wanted to say that I’m really, really, really, really, really (etc!) pleased you didn’t go for a comments ‘solution’ that requires registration with a third party or one that goes through a social media network like Facebook. More and more sites use one of those options now and I never use them. I like to keep the possibilities for being monitored to a minimum so I don’t use Facebook, Twitter or anything like that. I’m also always dissapointed when I can’t just comment if I don’t use those options. To me it seems a way of advance filtering and should not be what the internet is about. Many thanks!

Thank you so much for caring about our privacy! I really appreciate that. Can you do a story about the national driver licenses and the few states that refuse to comply? We are edging closer to the NWO

Can you comment on David Bowie. I don’t think he was controlled, but he sure pushed every boundary possible.

did you watch the vdo’s? Lazarus & Blackstar… he was contemplating his mortality…..

Have not watched it yet. Strange on Wiki (who can believe it anymore!), state that Bowie was verging on atheist and leaned towards to Buddhism. But check out Bowie at a full Wembley concert for a Freddie Mercury memorial and he gets on his knees and gets everyone to pray the Lord’s prayer! Had to know the truth!

Every “star” out there is controlled, no exceptions.

I don’t think that’s true, no system is perfect and fail proof, but the elite would LOVE you to think theirs is, it’s not.

However, when it comes to Bowie, Vig very briefly mentions him in his early Lady Gaga articles because her makeup with the lightning bolt was then from his album ‘Aladdin Sane’, and Also go read Vig’s ‘Labyrinth’ review, which Bowie is in. I think that may give you since more insights to answer your question.

“no system is perfect and fail proof, but the elite would LOVE you to think theirs is, it’s not.”

Agree. Overestimating the NWO is as dangerous as underestimating them.

If one wrongly assumes that it has total control over everything, one is apt to become demoralized and passive. That would unwittingly turn NWO global domination into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, as VC noted, The Hunger Games novels and films should not automatically be classified as “predictive programming”. Predictive programming is real. But it tends by nature and necessity to look remarkably like “cautionary tale”. The two must not be confused. Intent is a key distinction.

Thanks for rejecting Disqus. Lively discussion and honest POV are engendered by anonymous comments, the true foundation of a free internet.

Can you please do an article about cloning in the industry… BoB the rapper has been exposing them lately as well as Tila Tequila. Hinting they both may have been cloned. Eminem is DEFINITELY a clone no doubt about it. Love you VC God bless!!

Looks great!
Have you heard of “FEMM”, VC?
It’s a japanese pop duo and their hole concept is that of mannequins coming to life and being handles by their agents (women in black). They act like mannequins the hole time, even out of stage and are always drasses in latex clothing imitating Nurse, Maid, Officer and other types of fetishist uniforms.
There’s a lot of transhumanism going on in their videos and songs, it would make a great article, I bet!

Keep up the good work!

Hello, was wondering (/hoping) you would do a write-up on David Bowie’s Blackstar and Lazarus videos, so full of symbolism and messages he is trying to reveal to the world. Thank you for all the decoding you do!

Yeah, for a while there I was wondering if my comments just didn’t get approved. Maybe so, but since I didn’t say anything against the rules, I will tell myself it was the hold commenting system who didn’t like what I had to say. I dearly love this site and share it with people all the time. If I win the lottery on Wednesday, I will be mentioning how the world needs to wake up and start researching this shadow elite system that’s running around unchecked… and then hire a lot of body guards.

So how do we opt in for notifications? I don’t see the option. I really would like to receive an email for every single comment as they can be very informative. Thanks.

David Bowie please… I’m so curious

My comment is gone and I didn’t even say anything controversial. 🙂 That answers my question though – you’re still deleting comments and trying to keep the discussion within very tight confines. Anything that implies respectful disagreement or willingness to debate is not welcome. Um… how are you any different from the elite who, according to you, want to control the masses, then?

Cookie Jones

Do you know anything about @TheTweetOfGod? Its said to be the last twitter account David Bowie himself followed before his death. I do a little research of my own in my free time and I happened on it. I’m curious as to wether the account is real or not?

Watched an interview and Bowie was wearing a small gold crucifix around his neck. He also used the term “Jesus Christ” as a explanation, not in vain, or in a derogatory or defaming manner. These are not the actions of a man who dances with the devil (although he may have, just to see what it was like and then left him at the dance). Millions must have seen the interview and viewers were not led to the occult in anyway I could see or hear.
I think he was simply a brilliant, very deep and multifaceted man that gave us the gift of his drama while trying to fill us in on some of the secrets… right up to his dying day.

He made and still makes everyone wonder… Leonard Cohen, in his own understated way does the same, with his often prophetic lyrics…

People share a lot of information in your comments that could be considered subversive or a threat to the establishment. That’s probably why they were erased. I’m glad you were able to recover some.
