OffG site renovation

OffG is in the throes of being re-coded and updated, so there may be some glitches and temporary downtimes over the next few weeks.

This especially applies to the comments, which may be a bit glitchy be slow to register new comments.

We’ll try to keep the inconvenience to a minimum and apologise in advance for any inconvenience. We hope you’ll bear with us

Admins; As I suspect you wish to remain with Automattic, I have been looking around for a more sophisticated implementation of wp-comments-post.php than your setup to date and have found that http://www.unz.com seems to deploy it in a way that would meet most of the requirements of a commenting platform for yourselves and your users. You may wish to check it out. Some unknowns: (1) http://www.unz.com is hiding behind Cloudflare so without more digging than I have time to undertake, I don’t know if http://www.unz.com is running on an independent system or a hosting service like Automattic. (2) I do… Read more »

Some still associate Britain with Democracy? Really?
The UK government paid Barrister Clare Montgomery to “DEFEND” Augusto Pinochet against an extradition
request for crimes against humanity, including genocide and terrorism.
….. and …..
The UK paid the costs of Sweden to “PROSECUTE” and extradite Julian Assange, a journalist without a charge.
Q: And who is the legal representative for Sweden in this case?
A: Clare Montgomery.
The above explained in this link:

Given the increasing shabbiness of theguardian‘s ethic, I believe that a name change is also called for. It is no longer appropriate that this site be tarred with the same grubby brush as that other site from which the Interneut has delivered us. Coincidentally, in the spirit of progress, I am taking the liberty of here announcing the public launch of a movement to advance the cause that all victims of and protestants of any persuasion worldwide, including those protesting mainstream journalism’s manifest corruption (as exemplified by theguardian) should have an automatic, a priori right of return to Germany, with… Read more »

After reading about Steve Bell’s spat with Katherine Viner when she spiked his In memory of Razan al-Najjar…NOT cartoon because of its “conflation of Auschwitz ovens with the current unrest in Gaza” (and similar gobshite Prionazist “reasoning”) in a piece of unacceptable High Antisemitism, I was looking for a space to dump the load of fermenting mental vomit (hence the overmixed and overblown metaphors) that craven, insert-your-favourite-adjective-here–arse-licking response from the Guardian’s senior content curator (fish rotting, as they do, from the head down) had induced in my recoiling conciousness, along with its crystallization of the growing feeling I’ve had that… Read more »

My typo of my opinion that “…this site really should cut any banner reference…” should read “…this site really should cut any masthead reference…” Domain name? Probably needs to stay as is if too many existing readers aren’t to get lost. Would explain origins to any who wondered.

@Robbobbobin, along on the Crest of your Wave Length, as Sofa Surfer lover of Tsunamis .. did you mean like >> ? ? “Dr. Liesbeth Jacobs is the Production Manager at Prionics in Lelystad, Netherlands, where they manufacture diagnostic ELISA test kits for farm animals. As part of the production process, the microplates are coated with specific antigens and subsequently washed to remove unbound material.” Or more like >> https://www.swissbiotech.org/member/thermo-fisher-scientific-prionics-ag Thinking obviously of ‘Animal Farm’ , I’m not sure yet, about your prime beefy suggestion and I’m still mulling over the potential for >> [ ’em’ “PSYOP’ted-out ” ] of… Read more »

To catch up with the times 2 urgent areas need special attention:
1) a dedicated section on how the news about the Royal family constitute a solution to depression
2) Off-Guardian needs to have a full-time in-house war psychologist as is custom in big publishing houses. A position would be suitable for a dual national, of course. (My impression is The Guardian is now staffed exclusively by Establishment war psychologists)

Well as long as the in-house war psychologist is an irascible namby pamby peace activist that would be fine. Along with a dyslexic subeditor; a financial editor who cannot do sums; a Zionist reporting in Syria and a Wahhabi reporting in Jerusalem; an oppostion leader who is in bed with the president; and a dipsomaniac Russia editor who thinks that Peru is in West Africa.
Then everything would be hunky dory.

Is not an MI5 agent masquerading as a journalist also required on the permanent full-time staff? Such people can be spotted 100 kilometres away: you know, those who cannot spell or string more than two words together in a sentence, oral and written, don’t care two hoots about plagiarising others’ work and who always seem to know in advance what devious dastardly and deadly deeds the Russian President is planning to commit in Britain in two weeks. Oh and we must not forget the ditzy digital media journalist living in San Francisco or Los Angeles who knows everything there is… Read more »

With the exception of the peacenik war psychologists you’ve pretty much summed up the MSM as it is, not in some alternate reality
