“We are one of the most viewed websites in PA, logging thousands of hits a day.”
Posted by a LancTalk.com forum administrator yesterday.
I call BS! Where is this list of most viewed websites in PA? Your traffic is most certainly behind any newspaper or TV sites in PA which immediately makes your statement false. And I thought we all learned years ago that “hits” and “visits” and “unique visitors” are all very different items and hits doesn’t mean a hill of beans.
And I thought part of the point of all this is that it is the world wide web. Barry from Canada and Galty from England read and post on this site (and I love them both dearly). And I think Chase from TalkPa.net might take exception with your statement as well.
I just simply don’t like exaggerators or flat-out liars. Period.
And speaking of beans and forums, what’s up with Lancaster Online? They now have three places you can comment and it’s almost impossible to keep up. You can post directly under the story, on their Facebook page or on their “old” Trashback forum where a handful of jokesters led by the devilish “davebeans” are having a blast.
However, new articles from the site are not being posted on the forum and they are getting worried. It could be the LNP person responsible is on vacation (that did happen last year) or they could be letting the forum die a slow death. But that’s not fair to the posters who remain so either start posting the articles or kill the forum, LNP.
I would actually hate to see it die. I’ve been “covering” it so to speak for over eight years and I love forums. But if it does shut down, “davebeans” and any of the others are welcome here to write a piece or two or just post. Some of these folks are fantastic writers!
Okay, tomorrow back to serious news and I’ll also finish up the “GOING TO THE BISHOP!” story – and believe it or not, I’m going to tie it into the Penn State/Sandusky scandal. Oh, my!
