A couple of weeks ago, I took down the WordPress “Jetpack” commenting system and replaced it with Livefyre, the comment system that we’d had previously here a year ago. I’d gotten rid of Livefyre previously because when a user posted a comment via Livefyre, their system would not copy it into our local WordPress comments database. It was a major bug that was a deal-killer for me, which was too bad because otherwise Livefyre is great. The comments look good and it’s easy to log in via various methods and participate.
Thankfully a couple weeks ago, Livefyre’s support department reached out to me to let me know they’d fixed the database issue, so I decided to make the switch back. Unfortunately, the comment import automation process at Livefyre failed as Free Keene has nearly 60,000 comments amassed over nearly a decade, so it took more time and resources than expected to complete the import. During this time, a few thousand comments were gone from the site and they are now back!

Libertarian Presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry selects Muslim running mate
KEENE, NH, April 6, 2016 – The Libertarian Party, which made history in 1972 when Tonie Nathan became the first woman to receive an Electoral College vote, is notorious for breaking barriers on race, gender and sexual orientation decades before their mainstream counterparts do. In another groundbreaking move for the Libertarian Party, and American politics in general, Libertarian Presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry announced Wednesday that his running mate will be the first Muslim Vice Presidential candidate in American history. (more…)
Due to dishonest accusations from an anonymous source, Mountain Lake Campground has turned away the organizers of Not PorcFest. Despite Ian Freeman not being involved in organizing the event at all, the false allegations against him were cited specifically as a reason for this decision.
I am now even more determined for Not PorcFest to be a success. Send me a private message if you’ve got new venue suggestions.
The Manchester Police Department has announced its first sobriety checkpoint of the 2016 year (4/22), continuing its tradition of revenue collection via suspicionless vehicle stops. These ordeals have prevented nearly zero drunk drivers. Instead, the MPD continues to harass Manchester drivers for victimless crimes, such as cannabis possession, illegal immigration or driving with a suspended license.
Numerous activists have vowed to divert traffic from the upcoming checkpoints. This activism traditionally has a fantastic turnout, and it garners widespread support in New Hampshire’s largest city. Cheers and expressions of gratitude are heard from passing vehicles throughout the evening. Folks walking near the activists often stop to discuss the uselessness of the checkpoints, and activists have even been handed cash tips on several occasions.
I’ll be present at this first checkpoint, livestreaming, so you can watch the event as it happens. Bookmark this link, and it will be easy for you to tune in. Oh, and don’t forget to grab your copblocking gear.
