Hey everyone, thank you for contacting us with the problems you are having at the moment with posting comments.

While you may be told your message has been trashed or disallowed or denied, they are in fact all remaining on site.

So please be patient and your comments will turn up.

We are working on the problem and will have a solution soon.

PS -While we are having this discussion about comments, we have always felt moderated comments were a way to go to avoid trolling. The Internet can be a pretty rude place at times so we wanted to try and reduce that.

How would everyone feel about

a) Direct posts to blogs.

b) Moderation after publishing (if we went down this path we would need volunteer moderators).

c) We are going to start clamping down more on personal abuse between commentators and would like to open up thoughts form you the readers about what you would like to see in terms of comments and what the rules should be.

Please leave comments below. Thoughts on what we will do will be published middle of next month.

Cheers TDB Team

  1. Episode 802

    https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/313595-episode-max-keiser-802/

    “Every week Max Keiser looks at all the scandal behind the financial news headlines.
    In this special episode of the Keiser Report from the Gulf Coast of Florida, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss BP settlements, fracking abandonments and Uber’s balance sheet.

    In the second half, Max interviews ‘America’s Lawyer’ Mike Papantonio about Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder and the failure of the left and progressive wing in America.”

    • Brilliant episode that one, as America’s Lawyer Mike Papantonio has always been proven right we are certainly in for a very rough ride soon enough as the overstretched leveraged over borrowed economy with asset bubbles everywhere while we are all now awash in deflated commodity prices from aggressive levels of over production we are headed for a real depression he and all other pundits now are convinced is approaching.

      The globe is now urging OPEC countries to cut back production to increase the price of oil.

      So we are really now in a sure pickle.

    • @ gsays – No. Not just you. Same here as well. Message 503 advising me I have been blocked out.

      Be interesting to find just how many others have been affected.

      Harmful Digital Communications legislation at work anyone??

    Slower global growth
    Still raging property bubbles in Australia, Canada, and the US West Coast (thanks to influx of money from China)”….
