  1. Your blog earlier,
    I was able to copy and paste the link from WordPress onto fb and it worked.
    Can I add that there is some sort of move on.
    Twitter unfollows on my behalf important bloggers/groups/individuals and it’s been happening for 12-16 weeks now.

  3. Yup, same as before, with the new ‘close tab’ theme.
    Shall see if the other post is still on my fb page too.

  4. Both posts still there. Maybe I’m too tame…Maybe I’ll share them around on the business page which has Scotland in the title.

  5. Hi Paul
    Your normal alerts were coming on Facebook earlier today but not this one
    I follow you and get all your emails but Facebook has gone a bit weird lately and don’t get as much Indy content

  6. I copied a link to your “blocking” blog to my facebook page and it’s still there after almost 2 hours.

  7. I’m happy, naw,
    I’m f***in ecstaticalistic (sic) that all these tests have been successful.
    But let’s not loose sight of a potential problem, while we are all busy patting each other on the back cos its working again (don’t think I’ll ever use the phrase “back to normal” again).
    I know the dug hates conspiracy theory, but lets consider this a test, and formulate a plan “B” and “C” as rapid responses. You never know when things could break, or suddenly roll down a rabbit hole no one could foresee.
    I personally do not use faceprick or twatter (a politics decision on my part) however I do believe a mass movement off platform would be an excellent tactical response.
    But to achieve that we need that plan “B” and or “C”
    Now I know that there are many, many of us wicked “cybernats” out there with serious IT and electronic skills. so get your heads together and give us a tried and tested alternative communications system please ASAP.
    And don’t say something dumb like Tiktok, typing “Tiananmen” once takes that down.

    Was it a conspiracy or accident or just all the smoke out of the circuit, it makes no difference.
    It is indeed strange though how many indie systems were affected. Was there a problem with any other system ???
    Wasn’t WoS similarly affected a while back. Remember before it focused so much on Ms Sturgeon and party leadership.

  8. P.S.
    Will not be posting that warkward (sic) TV offering from the other night, even after it has been digitised.
    Have been advised to do so would expose myself and the Dug to CoC proceedure because of the content.
    My immediate question was “If I can’t post a copy of the show or a link to it without risking CoC how can the show it’s self air” the legal girls just shook their heads and drank some more coffee.
    Just wait and see was the response. Probably by the time a legally binding decision is handed down it will be such old news that no one will care.

  9. Wha’s like us! 😀 Inventive and generous.

    ‘The best free QR Check-In App.’


    • Looks like a very useful app, I think it would be great if the Scottish Government promoted it.

      Delboy in the video who wrote the app is Derek McClean. He and Kevin Gibney founded Independence Live in 2013 and have worked their socks off for the Independence movement ever since.. Well done that man.

  10. ‘Scottish Primary School staff show how to look after children’s learning in a time of infection and our media cannot bear to credit them.’



    ‘Unionist propaganda poll throws up a blatant contradiction.’

    …Chris McCall of the Record played along with the little stunt by breathlessly describing the poll as “another independence poll”. Well, no. Another independence poll would have asked the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” And we can all hazard a confident guess of what the result of that would have been, and why the Fabians very carefully didn’t ask it…


  11. Latest info.

    I can’t say when – perhaps there’s a good fellow-Dugger out there who knows better – but I’ve just noted that ‘my’ link via YouTube to the Wark documentary has been taken off. The allegation is that there is some sort of breach of copyright with ‘Two Rivers Media’ (who they? – Ed.)

    I was busy all day yesterday (Friday) what with a translation and going into town, that I might have missed it being pulled yesterday.

    Any enlightenment, fellow Duggers?

    • The BBC took the programme off iplayer for a time. They apparently made a small alteration/edit to the programme then put the newly edited version back on iplayer. The BBC did not give any details as to the nature of the editing carried out.

      It may be that the link you had to the programme on YouTube was to the original
      broadcast programme therefore it is likely to have been removed from YouTube.

      Just a guess on my part

  12. Hi Paul This got posted ok. Will check later to see if removed. All the best to you n Ginger from Arran Ellen
