Please put a name with your post

Those who voted all said names on posts work better and no requested the anonymous option.  We'll have a week long transition period and after that posts marked anonymous will not be accepted.  Either sign in with a Google account, use openID, or use the name/URL option to put a name with your comment.

The problem continues of people hitting respond to comments rather than post a comment.  Please try not to do that.  Most of those are being rejected as they seem to be from the same one or two people who don't seem to understand that the replied to comment is not connected at all when it posts on the blog. Thus they don't make sense.  Please see the entire post about that if you have questions.   

Reminder, anonymous comments are no longer being accepted.  Further I don't read anonymous comments.  They go straight into the trash.

Well then I guess I won't be commenting anymore. I loved that I could give my opinion but remain anonymous. This was one of my favorite sites too. What ashame!

Sharla said...

You can use a screen name. It doesn't even have to be a real name. You could use Red Sky or Ocean or whatever you choose that isn't vulgar, profane, etc.

"Well then I guess I won't be commenting anymore. I loved that I could give my opinion but remain anonymous. This was one of my favorite sites too. What ashame!" Don't be such a baby . . .use a made up name. No big deal.

CatLady said...

I also like using names; it makes it much easier to reference an earlier comment, rather than "anonymous at a particular date and time."

How do you make up a name to use? I am new to this site and the anonymous is pretty convenient. Thanks.

Sharla said...

As to the question of how to make up a name, on the chance you are really asking how to make up a name just pick something. It could be your real first name (I don't recommend that), a neighbor's name, the dog's name, a name of a restaurant, a phrase, whatever.

If the real question is where do I put the name, look where you've been clicking the anonymous bubble. There is a line above it that says name/URL. Click that bubble and type in the name you selected. Ignore the URL.

Seriously? Please tell me you're joking. Like Sharla said, just pick something, anything. You may have to actually think for a minute or so, but it's not hard.

Sharks do you want us to keep the same name all thd time? Or can we switch it around? Some blogs people do that.

Or can we have a funny specific Duggar moment name like "toilet birth" "crazy eyes" "flip flops"

Nepal Baby Mobile said...

Good idea

The Orange Cat Derek Ran Over With His Sled said...

I agree, good idea

Heart in Florida said...

Wow, you posters are coming up with some pretty creative names here; you have a flair for parody.Great, keep them coming!

Alberta Rose said...

:D Choose your nicknames wisely. When you do a search about any Duggar in Dogpile.com, this place appears at least three times.

Bubbles said...

When I read comments, replies to specific comments show up right under the original comment. What do you mean the replies don't work?

To the question about posting anonymously, just choose "name/url" instead of "anonymous" and type whatever name you want in the name box. The url box can be left blank. It's not to make everyone use their real name, but rather to be able to differentiate users to facilitate conversations.

Beth said...

re: Bubbles

Replies show up fine when viewing this site on my phone, but when I'm on my desktop all comments appear in the order entered and therefore replies are not in relation to the original comment, and with not everyone not able to see them that way it gets super duper confusing, so i think that's why she wants people to get in the habit of somehow mentioning the message they are replying/referring to so everyone knows

Katie's Mom said...

Sharla,
I too am please that you have now required names with all post. They have been creative & given me a chuckle. Wish I had been: "Mary Poppins," though as I just loved that character. Although I also love being: Katie's Mom

Kim Kardashiaduggar said...

It's all about the Benjamins. Don't believe a word of this "ministry" nonsense. The Duggars are entertainers, plain and simple.

sundynightlive said...

Made a negative comment before the sex abuse scandal beoke. wow, was I wrong about this. Sorry

Mickey She said...

I am shocked about the Duggar scandal. I am so sad for the victims. How could any parent defend anyone for inappropriate behavior with their daughters. I am truly disappointed in the parents.

Anonymous said...

Why are you defaming the very people you feel sorry for? This whole scandal is from a tabloid that dug into their legal records and other private documents so it could make money! Not just that but the police chief that Josh's brother has to work for, released those records to the press regarding a then minor. He now has to work for the very police that defamed his family! Just because you don't share their beliefs, does it give you the right to gossip on the internet about them even though you have not even gotten your names and stories wrong most times? You can't even get their birth order right! Then again, maybe you have too much time on your hands. How sad! The lives of 26 people including several infants has just had their name, livelyhoods, and for all but 2, their futures demolished all because of some tabloid and some politics wanting money and revenge! Think on that!

Sharla said...

I let an anonymous comment through so people can see the kind of thing (and much worse) that gets deleted on a regular basis.

What these people don't seem to understand is the Duggars put themselves in this position by covering for a molester and then making themselves public figures in politics and by having a long running TV show.

I will not have sympathy for them for that. The family's hypocrisy is on full display and the people I feel sympathy for are Josh's victims and Anna and her children.

Cynthia Hanzel said...

I used to watch you but for now this is unthinkable. you set their pants the gays and the lesbians that they're going to hell well what your son did is on excusable. maybe God will forgive you but I'll never watch you again.

Stacy's mom said...

Is it possible for you to remove the "anonymous" posting option? (Since I was wary of the "url" option, I clicked on "anonymous", forgetting you don't allow that.) Now that it has been explained how to post using a made-up name, I will do that now. It would have been helpful to me previously, though, for that "anonymous" choice to not be offered.

Sharla said...

We could if we went to registered users or people with Google accounts only. I find that might be overly restrictive.

Janie hairoil said...

I feel so sorry for the girls still trapped on the commune Joy Anna always looks like a girl trying to hides secret,I am guessing that she was the youngest involved and maybe she still needs help with it all.

Janie hairoil said...

I love this site, I can say everything I have wanted to say. My husband is fed up with them. He is sure something bad will come out about Jim Bob any day after that creepy comment he made at Jills wedding about how Derik is going to enjoy his wedding night that was his own daughter that he was sneering over, that was just so wrong.so pleased that Jill and Jessa may be getting shows of their own, I hope Jinger, Jessa and Joy can soon find love peace and a home of their own without being servants to anyone.If the Duggars want servants pay for some instead of breeding them and using them like slaves

Janie hairoil said...

I am waiting to hear tho new stuff about Josh that the other supposed mistress has to say, I am loving this. This is helping to keep me from being bored as I recover from a stroke.I wish Anna well and as far away from her pervert husband as possibly hope the girls can in time get through this dreadfu

Chloe said...

Janie, will be thinking positive thoughts for your recovery. Agree about waiting for the next shoe to drop about this other girl with whom Josh was involved.
