Site downtime--UPDATED

I'll be working on the site today so there may be periods of short downtime. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Update: The comment reply issue is fixed.

But, a week or so ago when the site was having major connection and slow down issues it was determined to be a problem with the Thumbs Up feature. The result of the correction was a loss of some voting data which wiped the Votes column on everyone's My Comments page from that point back. I'm sorry for that but it had to be done to bring the site back to normal.

Thanks for your patience.

A Gentle Reminder

From the FAQ: About Essay Content and Sourcing

C99 is a non-partisan site. That means that the site itself takes no official stance on any political party or candidate. Users are free to support any candidate or party across the political spectrum, from left to right. You are liable to see essays and comments here that also span that political arc. We are an open discussion board that takes pride in tolerance and a lack of censorship unless it is beyond the pale of civility. Beyond the pale of civility is a blanket term but I think we all would agree that there are some things that should be out of bounds and we would all recognize them as such if they were to pop up.

It's easy for a toe to cross the line when tap dancing close to it.

About Those Essays...

First there was the essay accusing "us" of being enablers of racists. Then there was the essay telling "us" we must be either miserable, depressed, or lazy for voicing our un-cited belief in the various ways we will be electorally screwed again come 2020.

Can "we" not speak for everyone here in our essays anymore?

Thank you.
