Thanks for quick follow-up . Chip ;-)
What's happening to me is weird... now I only get CAPTCHA at sign-in , and then when I do comments I get told I am queued for approval.

Good, I'm glad you're being patient, thanks. :)

>now I only get CAPTCHA at sign-in

This is a good sign as it means that the system is recognizing you.

>when I do comments I get told I am queued for approval

That is correct for right now - all comments are going into que. But hopefully soon we'll figure out whether it's possible to eliminate que for regular posters, and if so, how to do it.

I know that easy posting is very important for all the ADS members, and that it is satisfying to see your post go up right away. I hope you will all bear with us as we go through this transitional period. Thanks! :)

Chip, this may not be what you're looking for but did you happen to see it?

Compressed Option

I sent about the same text to ADS via contact and got an email reply: Have you tried a news reader? I have not yet, but may look into that.

You're on the right track to do what you want to do. ADS already syndicates our articles.

There are numerous news readers. Some are associated with services, like Google and Yahoo. Others are standalones, like this freeware news reader named RssReader. Here's a list.

They all do the same thing, though the output - what you see - varies by reader.

Once you've selected and installed a news reader, go to our front page, and scroll down, looking on the left side of the page for the "Syndicate" button.

Right click the little orange button, and copy the link.

Then, go to your news reader program, and paste that link into your news reader.

You can customize how your news reader operates by using its settings.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, apparition, the techs have been notified.

got this when adding a comment

Ive seen similar in the past. Don't think it means it won't work. Just a warning message.

Thanks. This has been reported to the techs.

Unfortunately, right now, all comments submitted are going into que.

I know it's much more satisfying to have a comment published instantly, but for now, everything goes in que, so it's nothing personal to anyone.

Please be patient with us, and keep reporting problems and making comments. Thanks! :)

When I've posted lately, I've been getting this message: ""warning: preg_match_all() [function.preg-match-all]: Unknown modifier '/' in /home/members/downing/sites/afterdowningstreet.org/web/sites/default/modules/spam/spam.module on line 1275.

Other than that little issue, the only time I've gotten a CAPTCHA is after I sign in, and post an initial comment.

Thanks, Stephie1776, that's been reported to the techs. :) Hopefully, we'll get back to more normal soon.

I got that message several times, also, and thought maybe the software was installing special cookies for those who post, or some such stuff.

I just read a paid for column that said Cheney and W. House may have been getting live streaming video of torture at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. Kind of like a real time porno-snuff film! Yuch!
I'll post something on it.

There's no special cookies, Joe, it's just a programming error. The techs have been notified.

OK, thanks. Can you please glance at the response I wrote on the Katrina victims and post those alleged thefts right away?
That's enough money to rehouse those victims.Joe

I'm just wondering if Halliburton was the toaster supplier? :)

In the lower left hand corner under Search and Stats, tons of traffic:

Ithe past didn't the site name of ADS get automatically loaded into Alexa? Now it asks for a web site name. A small thing but a difference.

ARREST BUSHCO & RICO PNAC/FARA AIPAC...PNAC is Bush/Cheney's "Helter Skelter" !

Thanks, Yank. We're staying on moderation for a while. I have reported that to the techs. I'll double-check how it's coming along. It's been a bit busy. :)
