Blog complaints

Hey Scooby, why all the garbage about "road signs," "store fronts," and "street signs" on the "prove you're not a robot" thing?? It takes me twice as long to do this crap as to type a post. What problem is this garbage solving? If you have abuse statistics, publish them so we can see your choices of authorization methods are reasonable. Why does all this matter on an essentially unmonitored, anonymous blog???

I suppose that you might have heard about denial of service attacks?

Again, on an unmonitored anonymous blog, the "service" is worth essentially nothing. Who cares if it goes down?

Similarly, untested nukes are also worth nothing. No computer sim is going to capture the effect of thousands of incremental changes in materials, design and manufacturing processes. Trump, make testing go BOOM again!

DOS attacks is the reason. If one happens, who gets stuck cleaning up?
That's right!
This blog is moderated. That implies, it is monitored even if is justfor new posts.
As for stats, I feel I do not have to justify my "methods", as my blog operation is 100% voluntary.
Any other question?

No transparency, no accountability. Isn't that why everyone hates NNSA/LLNS/LANS??

Scooby says what he "feels." I wonder what he thinks? Pot, meet kettle.

To paraphrase "Skip" Nisker from my old KSAN days:

If you don't like the blog, go out and make one of your own.

For folks that don't like Scooby Do or his Blog you have two options:

1. Don't visit this Blog
2. Start and manage your own Blog.

Any questions?

Yes. You forgot:

3. Keep reading, posting, and complaining.

Your choices are not my choices. You seem to believe

1. Scooby is in authority on this blog (correct).

2. Authority must never be questioned (false).

Thank you Bernie Sanders.

Good grief:
as February 25, 2017 at 3:55 AM said, you have choices. Go complain somewhere else.
A blog is not an entitlement thing, in case you did not know.

Yes, and as February 25, 2017 at 7:25 AM pointed out, the choices are not as limited as February 25, 2017 at 3:55 AM claimed. When you begin to try to limit other peoples' choices, you will soon find out they resent that. And ignore you. And do what they want. Get used to it.

I love this blog. Hats off to Scooby. I would love to hear more comments on the Lab's thoughts on NNSA oversight. Sure wonder if any of the Lab Directors had input to the Trump transition team as to the Federal oversight.

I am not sure that the directors we now have at the national labs have the fortitude to jump outside of the channels to rock the boat. Parney did that and he paid the price. Given Goldstein's proclamations of late I don't think he would be communicating with the Trump team, his feelings might be bruised.

Hecker was the last Lab Director that had the chops to take on DC. The others, with the exception of Parney, have been UC stooges that filled the desk. Indeed Parney paid the price when he didn't toe the UC politically correct party line.

So what is your blog complaint? Or are you just absolutely clueless as most LANL/LLNL folk are about nearly everything?

Anonymous said...

Everyone have a little sympathy.

The original poster said "…why all the garbage…on the "prove you're not a robot" thing?? It takes me twice as long to do this crap as to type a post."

From this, we must conclude:
1. The poster doesn't understand why a blog would have a 'prove you are not a robot' feature.
2. The poster has difficulty with the concepts of "road signs," "store fronts," and "street signs."
3. The poster literally requires 10 minutes to navigate the 'prove you are not a robot' feature after spending 5 minutes typing his/her post.
4. Thus the poster must work at or .

And so how could you not feel sorry for him/her?

PS: kudos again to Scooby, thanks for your service.

If anyone on this blog actually takes five minutes to type a post, the relevance, thoughtfulness, and quality sure don't show it.
