“While we're on the subject, there's another place for ex-HPers at Daily Kos. Just go there and look at groups -> Newest. You'll find it quick. I got in within a day at that one.

It loads much better and has easier blog posting tools. Murphthesurf started it and I'm on the member list. Sign up for that one, too!”

“Thanks for that, Mike. I'll give that a roll too!”

“I got in. If you're having trouble getting it, just wait it out. Took me like a week and a half to get accepted. Apparently the list is quite long.”

Semprini on Jun 9, 2014 at 22:04:35

“Thanks for the update, Mike. Glad you got in...I haven't put my name in yet, but I plan to. This whole business has put me in a bit of a mood, I must admit, and so I haven't done much but feel sorry for myself, rather than look for new places.

Still, that's a hopeful sign that you are in, and that so many are going there. I guess my tantrum should come to an end, and soon... :-)”

“And don't worry. I know why I'm so far back. I canceled and readded my request to join a day or two ago because I thought there had been a glitch in the system - my internet crashed the minute I registered for MSNBC - Thanks Comcast. >P”

“Wait, what do you mean by a page at MSNBC? Isn't that just registering?”

peacekitten on Jun 5, 2014 at 18:46:28

“i think it is just registering, but they call it a "page."   i'm still learning my way around that site, as are most of us over there.   it's kind of like the blind leading the blind, but we'll find our way.    it's not as easily navigable as here, but we'll get the hang of it, and it's a small price to pay to escape the clutches of FB!”

“I'm having trouble getting into HPRefugees. I'm not sure what the problem is.”

peacekitten on Jun 4, 2014 at 17:07:12

“don't give up.   from what i understand, as of a couple of days ago, anyway, there was a line of over 300 people waiting to get in.   don't give up.   i'll drop a line to HITO/murph.    they're working as fast as they can, and have already admitted over 150 in addition to the 300.    they're trying very hard to vet everyone through their former HP profiles.   please don't give up, and have patience.    you can go there as a "visitor" as well.   i think you have to make a page for yourself at msnbc to then gain admittance to the gated communities.   that's what i had to do, it took me a couple of days because i had to get verified from them first, then the group.   hope to see you there!”

Semprini on Jun 3, 2014 at 00:14:31

“Looks like I'll have to give it a try...I guess it means another damn password to remember! Well, hopefully we'll get in, and I'll see you there. I don't really have any other suggestions; this place was by far the best, and quite unique.

Anyway, if we get accepted, I'll see you there, my friend. Sad times, though.”

“I'll hope along with you, but not hold my breath. Website suicide is an ugly thing that rarely reverses itself.”

Semprini on Jun 2, 2014 at 20:58:42

“So true...I see various new articles today that are Facebook comment linked, and some which aren't, so I wonder if this might be more of a slow motion thing, the death by a thousand cuts. Anyway, I will hang on and see what happens, and will keep the other options ready.

As you say, though, these things do tend to go one way, and it isn't good. Thanks again for the refuge options!”

“A bunch of us are trying to find alternate places to go. Look at Peacekitten's comments on this article to see an e-mail address. Plus, we're going to HPRefugees on MSNBC. No reason the band has to completely break up.”

Semprini on Jun 2, 2014 at 17:08:28

“Thanks for the tip, Michael...I will keep those on file! Sounds hopeful. I'm also hopeful that the delay here means there is some rethinking going on at Huff HQ, although admittedly that's a faint hope, and not based on anything concrete.”

“Hilarious considering they've been warning us against Facebook for ages and now make it essential to interacting here.

A lot of us grit our teeth and linked up with something else to survive the last change but this is too much.

Oh, and it's quite obvious why they're doing this. Remember when they used to have big prominent badges for us?

Those were for linking Facebook and Twitter.

Their goal is to make us their billboards. If others see us having "conversations where we want", they might get curious and see what's up.

It's cheap. It's ugly. I want no part in it.

I'll miss everyone here. Truly.”

collinst on May 30, 2014 at 12:43:56

“Don't know what you mean about "Ignorance isn't Bliss". 1970-1978 I worked for the Army Security Agency, ASA. Mainly then a Soviet/East German/North Korea/North Vietnamese mission. We reported directly to the NSA. I signed the same documents as Snowden for my security clearance, Top Secret Crypto. It carried a 20 year/$20,000 sentence for even divulging to anyone, civilian or foreign countries on what I did or learned while I was in. Even today, about 25% of what I know or did is still classified. I guess some of us take our country's security, oaths and secrets seriously but not Snowden, he is a traitor and spy and should be tried and jailed.”
