There is something wonderful in seeing a wrong-headed majority assailed by truth.

“The citadel of established practice seldom falls to the polite knock of a good idea. It may however yield to a long siege, a pre-emptive strike, a wooden horse or a cunning alliance.”
(Photographs 28) all of which have been posted before but they’re now together in one place.
End of You Tell Us – 28 January 2015
“Today is the last ideas thread. From tomorrow, we won’t be running these threads anymore. We still really want your ideas for articles, but we think the best way to do that will be to have a dedicated email address for people to send in suggestions. That is being set up asap. The editor of Cif, Kira Cochrane, will be running a talking shop tomorrow to explain more, but when this thread closes tomorrow there won’t be a new one. I know this will be upsetting for some, but please bear with us while we make some new changes to the site.”
As from today – (sometime in early 2013) “A Change is gonna Come” and hence the track which is from almost 500, vaguely described as pop and rock, on my MP4 player that I use mainly when I’m running at the gym or outdoors, or when I’m doing things I rather not like ironing clothes, cleaning and so on. This one by coincidence comes top of the list when arranged in alphabetical order. Of course I’ll intersperse them with some great jazz and classical music
This I hope is going to be a temporary front page until WordPress manage to sort out the bug that’s preventing it loading more than 10k comments. As there are over 16k on the original “front page, this is why the more recent ones aren’t appearing.However comments are open here and thanks to Jack for the suggestion.
And here are all the comments that no one could see because of the bug
Paul, your “Testing” post at 3.16pm has arrived.
Update 2 Desde at at 6.09pm – hacked, I don’t think so but will investigate.
Jack, thanks for the suggestion about the cache at 8.04pm which I’m going to look into now. When I opened the site this morning the appearance of the page had changed with a much wider margin on the left and no drop down menu to access the rest of the site. It’s what WordPress refer to as the “improved posting esperience”. I can see all three new comments in “editing mode” but in”View mode” the most recent comment is still yours from 23 Feb 2015 about posting the 10,000th comment. Anyway I’m going to look at the link you left about the cache and if that doesn’t work I’ll leave a question on WordPress Support.
For everyone you can still leave comments and until I’ve sorted things out here and I’ll post an acknowledgement here. :)
OK I’ve got Charlie at WordPress who understands the problem and is looking to fix it. More as and when.
Charlie has taken the problem away and will respond to me by email. In the meantime I’ve set up a new page where I can post your recent comments called Recent comments.
BTH – I have tried to replicate the problem, but without much success. However, in the past, we have ‘cured’ such problems by changing themes – may be worth a go.
Hi Jack, thanks for that but I’m reluctant to try anything while there’s a chance the people at WordPress might find out what’s wrong and sort it out. Their guy Charlie said he’d never come across the problem like this before so my thinking is that it can’t be something straightforward. I think it might have something to do with the change from the old editor, which I prefer and what they call “the new posting experience”. Yesterday was the first time when I clicked on the edit button that it opened the “front page” in the “new posting experience” editor.
I received the following from WordPress – “We chatted yesterday about some of your comments not displaying on your blog. I asked a colleague to look into it, and there’s currently a bug that limits number of comments on a single page or post to 10,000. At the moment, we don’t have a workaround, but our technicians are working on a fix and hope to have it updated soon.”
After getting the mail from WordPress I did a malware scan and it found RiskWare.IFEOHiJack twice, in Registry Value and Registry key. But I think that was just a coincidence although I’ve no idea where they came from.
Good morning all.
Perhaps a new site will have to be set up.
BTH – Have replicated the fault. Once a article runs over 10,000 comments, it ‘trips’ back (no idea why)
The only way around it (for the mo) is to close your comments – then link your ‘To Comment click here & page to the bottom’, to a new page. Not ideal – but will allow comments.
