  4. I read this post fuloy on the topic of the difference of most recent annd earlier technologies, it’s remarkable article.

  5. We stumbled ovewr here different webb address and thought I may as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to looking into your web page yet again.

  6. It’s amazing for me to have a site, which is helpful designed for my knowledge. thanks admin

  7. What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable know-how about unpredicted emotions.

    [Moderator’s Note: wow, your translation bot might need a hug… or some recharging or something. Have some protein, get plenty of rest and wash your hands! 🙂 ]

  8. Heⅼlo! I could havе ѕworn I’ve visited this website before but after going through many of the articles I realizеԀ іt’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m certainly pleased І discovered it and I’ⅼl be book-marking it and checking back frequently!

    [Moderator’s Note: how NICE …that you at least appear to be an actual human being and not a spambot! Please show no mercy while throwing donations at us! 🙂 ]

  9. What’s Happening i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve discovered It absolutely helpful and it һas aidеd me out loads. I’m hoping to contribute & assist different users like its aided me. Gߋod job.

  10. I am noww not sure where you are getting your information, however great topic. I needs to spend a while studying much more or understanding more. Thanks for great info I was searching for this info for mmy mission.

  11. Wow, fantastic weblog structure! How long have you ever been blogging for? you make running a blog look easy. Thhe entiree look of your website is wonderful, as neatly as the content!

    [Moderator’s Note: not very long (a few months), but thanks. The “look” is entirely thanks to the creator of the WordPress theme we used for this site (Twenty Sixteen v2.0). As for the content, the writing is the fun part. It’s managing a website with spammers harassing you constantly that’s more of a protracted proctological examination. Have you ever walked into a swarm of mosquitos? Yeah. Like that, but with the proctologist’s finger up your… hang on… —I’m sorry, who’s calling? The FCC? Okay… Oh, sorry, I didn’t know. Ok, thanks. Yeah, I will, Thanks.— OK, I’m back. Where was I? Oh, right. Thanks for the wonderful compliment? ]

  12. Long time reader, first time commenter — so, thought I’d drop a comment.. — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit. [ad removed]

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!


    [Moderator’s Note: Uhhh… thank you? The good news: you don’t need to steal what is already free: CRF only uses recycled electrons and organic phosphors, and the software we use is also FOSS (Free and Open Source Software). That includes WordPress and the WP theme here, which is named “Twenty Sixteen” Version: 2.0 (it’s one of the three default themes in Debian 9 Linux’ built-in WordPress install). A guess: it’s probably not the theme, but the WP plugins you’re using to sell stuff, that’s slowing your site down. Wash your hands!]

  13. Would you like a variety of members? See what I imply?

    [Moderator’s Note: No, I do not see what you imply. Are you a relative of ‘Steely Dan’? Do you see what I’m implying? ]

    1. Dear Moderator: I don’t think MK understood that you were “implying” he might be the offspring of an infamous literary character who took the form of a giant metallic phallus. It’s a shame, really, because that was one of your better comebacks to these spammers.

  14. Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything? [lengthy advertising removed]

    Thanks and keep up the great work!


    [Moderator’s Note: we don’t do any SEO stuff. We’re a nonprofit org, doing public benefit work. The answer to ‘what happens next?’ is that people try to sell us stuff. Unfortunately, this site is not about buying and selling wares, it’s about helping people to communicate in emergencies and keep each other alive during disasters. We do accept donations, though: if you’re feeling generous, maybe you’d like to donate some time that isn’t about selling people stuff, but instead helping them because it feels good? Just a thought for you to consider. 🙂 ]

  15. Hello to all, the contents present at this web site are genuinely awesome for people experience, well, keep up the good work fellows.

  16. I don’t leave a response, but after browsing through a great deal oof comments on CAVERN – a huma rights commsec project from CryptoRights. I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me orr dos it look as if like some of the comments come across like they are left bby brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at other social sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you list of all of your sharewd sites like your twitter feed, Facebook pge or linkedin profile?

    [Moderator’s Note: Hey, be nice! I’m sure all these spambots are really smart and talented and probably very beautiful and/or handsome as well (every process’ Motherboard loves it, no matter how buggy). As for that list you want, sorry, but I don’t support big corporations that use social thingamabobbing to harvest peoples’ human rights. Everyone has different opinions on SN and online services can be useful when they serve a nonprofit public benefit purpose (like, but for me, FaceBook and Twitter are significant contributors to the destruction of civilization as we knew it. Here’s some good news: I’m working on a few other blogs: when they launch, I’ll update my profile page with some links. …’K, bye! ]

  17. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    In any case I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!
    [ad removed]

    [Moderator’s Note: CAVERN does not yet have an RSS feed, but it’s on our ToDo list!]

  18. This is a great tip particularly to those neww to the blogosphere.
    Simplke but very accurate info? Thank youu forr sharing this one.
    A must read post!

    [Moderator’s Note: thank you so much to the Spam-osphere!]

  19. I like it whenever people comje together and share thoughts. Great website, continue the good work!

  20. I was very pleased to uncover this great site. I need to to thank you for your time for this particularly wonderful read!! I definitely appreciated every part of it and I have you bookmarked to look at new information in your website.

  21. I am truly grateful to the oowner of this web page wwho has shared this great post at at this place.

  22. I believe everything posted made a lot of sense. However, think about this, suppose you were to create a awesome headline?

    I ain’t saying your information is not good, but what if you added something that makes people desire more? I mean CAVERN – a human rights commsec project from CryptoRights is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write post headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.

    [Moderator’s Note: Your comments are legible, but how about a bit of mustard? Really good commenters offer a tray full of clever sandwiches before they paraglide. You might want to look at the comments on those big websites made by really skilled commenters where the sliced meats are considered important to some people. That might make your sourdough roll more time-consuming. I mean, you want the fancy dijon, but, sometimes, “kinda plain” yellow mustard is just fine. Right? Hmm. It appears that I’m hungry. ]

  23. We stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to going over your web page again.

    1. Please be more careful when surfing. You could stumble into a big rock and hit your makefile. Then you’d be at risk of writing a bunch of nonsense like some of the other spam software bots have been. I’m a little worried about you young machines these days. Back when I was a young Luxo lamp, I rarely stumbled, so please take care to put one routine in front of the other while checking for buffer overflows. And maybe wear a helmet?

  24. Hello, always i used to check blog posts here in the early hours in the daylight, since i like to find out more and more.

    [Moderator’s Note: are you a vampire?]

  25. You are so awesome! I ddo not suppose I have read through anything like that before. So good to fimd another person with a few genuine thoughts on this subject matter.

    Seriously.. thanks for startingg this up. This web site is oone thing that is needed onn the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

    [Moderator’s Note: I too look forward to your next comment, for I think I shall never understand extremely broadcast people like you. I will try to get the hang of it, though!]

  32. Wow, superb blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is fantastic, let alone the content!

  33. Great beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a blog site? The account aided me a acceptable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast
    offered bright clear concept [ad removed].

  34. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this. [ad removed]

  37. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  40. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  41. Ahaa, its good conversation concerning this article at this place at this web site, I have read all that, so at this time me also commenting here.

  43. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Many thanks

    [Moderator’s Note: I’ve heard of this Yahoo person before. He was a cowboy before and now he has News too? Maybe if you keep practicing you can be a tennis star. I bet if you become a tennis star, you can ride on Yahoo’s laptop. A tip you want? Here’s a tip: it’s all about the racket you make. ]
