Facebook comments fix on the fritz 4

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY — I bragged awhile ago that I finally had a plugin that would automatically post Facebook comments to my cross-posted entries here on the blog. Thanks to the wizards at Facebook (may they forever rotate in a rotisserie), the plugin stopped working about two weeks ago. The developer is working on a fix to the plugin, but knowing FB’s habitual tweaking of, well, everything, the code will need to be revised — again — in the near future. Grumble, grumble.

Facebook Comments problem solved! 6

JISHOU, HUNAN — A while ago, I linked this blog to my Facebook account. My posts here are automatically imported into my FB Notes. Once upon a time, I had another plugin that extracted comments to the imported Notes from FB back here. But it stopped working, and its developer gave up working on it.

Now, I may have to go through them and edit out duplicates, but that’s a minor irritation compared to having to manually copy-and-paste FB comments myself.

JISHOU, HUNAN — Here’s a surprise: I posted a comment at a denialist website pointing out an obvious factual error, and … drum roll please! … the comment was deleted. Or, it has disappeared into moderation limbo. A denialist is one who believes that commonly accepted facts or scientific theories are wrong, despite all evidence to the contrary. There are evolution denialists, gravity denialists (see elsewhere at this site), germ theory denialists, Holocaust denialists, and Barack-Obama-was-born-in-the-USA denialists, among many others. Daily Kos had a story about one Dr. Orly Taitz, a California dentist cum constitutional lawyer who labors under the misconception that Obama was actually born in Indonesia. She insists, among other crazy ideas notions, that Obama was an Occidental College student named Barry Soetoro. That he was not is pretty clear, and I am not going to spend time here debunking her variety of looniness. The woman is convinced she is right, and damn the torpedoes, she’s sticking to her story. In one of her posts, Taitz says the following about the mythical Obama/Soetoro. The spelling and grammatical errors are hers; the highlighted sections are mine. Due to the fact that Obama arrogantly refuses to unseal his vital records ...
