Fact Check #125.5

Hello!

Fact Check 125’s thread has grown to over 600 comments, and many are reporting difficulty navigating the thread, especially on mobile devices.

So, to alleviate such ills I am going to continue that topic here on a fresh thread so you can all continue your conversations.  

I would also like to say that we recently passed the 1,000,000th hit to our site! We are a zero income, completely non profit blog. We don’t use such metrics to adjust our content to optimize for such things. So, we simply have your grass-roots word-of-mouth efforts to thank for our success in the traffic department. Thank you all! 

We will remain true to our purpose, and any notion of commercialization or simply throwing anything we can at you to improve traffic is not going to happen. We exist in spite of such tactics, not because of them. 

I invite you all to review all the “intel blogs” and count the number of feel good posts; the number of late week pumps and Monday morning let downs. It forms a particularly deliberate pattern that must serve a purpose. But, that purpose does not seem to be accuracy in conveyance of information. The only remaining reason for a blog to exist is for commercial purposes. You can figure out the rest. 

Comforting-lies

We continue to be well placed to deliver valid and accurate information, and will continue to do so as we are advised. 

Thank you again, and your patience and continuing good will are appreciated very much.
