    The Lima News Website

    Post  Mickey on Sun Oct 09, 2011 8:34 pm

    Just like the Columbus Dispatch did a few months back, TLN is changing the format on their website. I don't know when it starts, but instead of using a screen name to post on their boards, you have to use your real name, no more anonymity.

    Big mistake, IMO. The Columbus Dispatch website went right into the pooper once they made the change. Where there used to be a couple of hundred comments on a story, now you barely get 10. Very boring website anymore, I don't visit it near as much as I used to.

    I did post over there every once in a great while (TLN), so it's not going to break my heart not to post.

    Big slow down on TLN website, I think I may have seen 2 posts since the real-name rule went into effect. Maybe it will pick up, who knows? bounce

    Doubtful. They were probably tired of some of them people who posted and this is their way of getting rid of a lot of them.

    I logged in over there, and I can't even find a place to comment on anything. It's like TLN totally took it down. What makes me mad is they took away the poll feature to see an article. I wasn't even logging in, or commenting on articles for the most part. I wonder if the whole change has to do with some jackwagon putting up info on the guy going around trying to abduct kids. They even gave a link to FB so you could see this guys pic. Even I'm not that dumb. So kudos to the idiot that was putting up crud they aren't suppose to. I'm wondering if TLN didn't get contacted by that guys lawyer threatening a lawsuit. Heck, I don't even know if that's the guy for sure, and my husband works for the PD ! They were and are keeping quiet on this one. Probably in hopes of actually catching the guy. It is good to be informed, but parents and now children are spotting this white jeep cherokee everywhere. Chances are guy has seen or heard the news and has dumped the white cherokee.

    Oh, and Mickey, no one new has registered on here since Go Blue. Sorry it took me so long. Been busy with the kids, and the new pup. Finally got me a little girl lap dog ! Named her Gizmo.

    Some friends of ours have a female peek-a-poo they named Gizmo. We just love her. I'm not sure how old she is, but I'd have to say at least 8. She probably doesn't weigh more than 10 pounds.

    Back to TLN, there were more comments on the story about the 22-year old jerk-off who beat up the 5-month old baby than the rest of the entire site. Maybe people will get comfortable with putting their name out there, but I can't, not with where I work. I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it, not unless it was something totally outrageously funny and I couldn't help myself - something I knew I wouldn't get flack over.

    And I did notice they got rid of the forum over there.

    She's a shih-tzu. She has a white patch on her forehead. She is just so darn cute. Eric calls her Satan's Dog when she gets all riled up, and wants to bite. My mom says it's a puppy thing, but I don't ever remember my poodle doing that when I was younger. Found out why Gizmo liked going under the couch so much. The little bugger was pooping under there.

    Anyways...I saw the guys pic on there that beat the baby. I didn't even read the article because I didn't want to get upset. People like him need to be strung up and tortured indefinitely.

    On a funnier note, I think I found something you guys might like.

    Sad thing is those fart pads are actually real lol ! They have bigger ones in a different brand, but their selling point wasn't near as good. Laughing
