There’s a new FAQ page up, talking about spam, trolls, and anonymity. Did I forget anything?
« State Employees Will Now Testify in Troopergate Probe.
Obama-rama in Juneau, Alaska! »
Just a couple questions:
1) are we allowed to play with the trolls?
2) can I throw a couple of warm road apple pies at ’em?
use some amish road apples
I have always thought of you as a she the good side of the Alaska female coin as opposed that thing that is representing your state in the national media at this time, so will continue to do so. Given what we have seen of Sarah and how very vindictive she can be I sugest you remain a shadow until such time as she is discredited enough not to have the power to harm. Thanks for the great space to meet like minds and the timely stories, noticed you often beat the national press by several days. In I often wonder if they get their leads here.
Looks like you covered things well–I expect some heavy trolling to come.
Keep it clean mudpuppies, and keep standing by our AKM!
Hmmm…..I just leave the trolls at bingo parlor with all the other goober daubers:)
Guys-urgent-can you report on this please, for those of us in the lower 48?
Bird flu on Prince of Wales Island?
I thought this might be of interest to people. Apparently, the term ‘Maverick’ refers to a specific person. His granddaughter is… not happy with the McCain use of the term.
You see, Mr. Maverick was a 1930s Congressman… who was a Democrat, a supporter of the New Deal, and who tried to push it even further to the left.
Funny sort of thing, history.
Where is the FAQ page? I’m embarrassed to say I cannot locate it on your site.
Top right, black bar.
Sorry, this is off topic. I don’t know if you have seen this, but
check this out “Obama to Tie McCain to Keating 5”
Obama is fighting back. It’s on!!!
AKM, on the forum site, you caution against posting long passages from articles, or the entire article, d/t potential copyright problems. If this is the case here, too, that might be useful info for FAQs. Don’t want you courting trouble!
Associated Press: Obama ad links McCain to Keating scandal
Here is the trailer to the 13-minute documentary about the Keating 5 and Mcains involvement. Obama to make available tomorrow at 1200 noon EST.
Man oh man!
I know this is off topic but I have been reading all day about the McCain-Palin ticket repeatedly bringing up Obama’s past etc etc especially the good ole Gov herself. So, i was just wondering….is it just me or isn’t this a tad bit contradictory to what she repeated over and over again about going backward instead of forward to bring true change during the debate last week? I mean really….they should really be calling themselves Captain Obvious and Redundant Girl……all they do is say one thing and then go ahead and do what they claim not to agree with in the first place….
not enough experience……they pick Palin
finally agree change is good….steal it and start to use it over and over trying to make it somehow sound original
claim that Obama and Biden are mudslingers only capable of bringing up the past and are wrong to do so when it comes to them….then when it suits their own end….begin to do the very same thing about their opponent.
Please…. if she expects Obama to be held accountable for his past…then she needs to step up to the damn plate and be accountable for hers….enough already!!!!!!
I vote for moose nuggets as troll food. Brian ought to be able to keep us supplied. 😉
Any further word on the mystery mud, AKM? LOVED the photos of the dueling rallies! Attendance at the pro-Palin ones seems to be dropping along with the temperatures. But the warmth at the Obama one is apprarent. Keep it up, all you Alaskans.
Still hoping my yard sign will arrive before 11/4. Meanwhile, I’ll do the home-grown variety to counter the McCain-Palin one that has sprouted in my neighborhood — on a street with 6 houses, 3 of which have been foreclosed on! The homeowner obviously doesn’t see a connection between the vacant houses around him and McCain’s economic policies.
So, our philosophy here is Do Not Feed The Trolls (DNFTT), right?
Do we ID the troll to let everyone know it is a troll? Many users pick up mid-thread.
AKM – I know you have moderators at the Forum, do you have some in this bit ‘o cyberspace that can pour salt on the slugs as needed?
And my eyes can’t see that darn FAQ link either….??
OFF TOPIC: Hustler is doing a TV show called NAILIN PALIN on TMZ.
Thought some might be interested.

I made my own yard sign. You can too. Wal-Mart has poster board
for 50 cents per sheet. You can purchase a stencil kit for less than
$5. It has all letters, numbers, puncuation marks,etc. An inexpensive
can of blue and red spray paint, some masking tape, and in
a few minutes you have a yard sign.
Deadlines looming: Register to vote on Google!
HeY! I have a question. Do ALL/SOME/NOT MANY/NONE Alaskans TALK like Palin?
That smarmy/snarky/sarcastic alleged “mid-western” nasal twang is ’bout ta drive me crazy? Annnnd, is Alaska considered “mid-western”?
Love me some MUDFLATS!! :>)
Suchanut (Wesson Scalper Palin) (20:43:24) :
And my eyes can’t see that darn FAQ link either….??
Top of page, long black bar, last listing on right side, reads FAQ.
I wanted to share this with everyone as B.O. is going on the offensive. Time to fight back!
In terms of trolls, AKM, I predict that as Nov. 4 nears, and as the McCain-Palin ticket continues to tank, there will be EVEN more trolls on here. So heads-up, everyone. You can smell the desperation on them already.
I heard a NEW MEDIA report on NPR tonight, and they quoted an expert about blog traffic, who said that many people scope out blogs from “the other political side” of an issue, to try to figure out how their opponents think in order to block their strategies…..spying, essentially….
I’m not seeing the FAQ either and I’m guessing it’s because of the browser (IE). The last link on the far right of the bar is “Alaskan Events”
how do i contact AKM with information i have??
AKM, Just finished reading your FAQ page. Could not agree more.
Thanks for your help today. I promise to be more patient in the
future. With a great deal of LAR, here’s to a great evening,
and a blue Alaska.

I too have IE browser and I see the last tab on the bar reading
FAQ and I am old and almost blind.
Sheesh aka Puck Mule Palin (21:33:59) :
Forgot to mention that it is to the right of “ALASKAN EVENTS”.
i just emailed you ..READ
I’ve spent a lot of time in Alaska and talking to alaskans by phone and never came across anyone with the same poor diction.
The particular word driving me nuts today is in that video where she misquotes Madeleine Albright. She said “innerduction”, – twice!
It makes me think of Minnie Pearl (who did not speak that way, off-stage) and Grand Ole Opry talk.
Wish I could stay in the Flats as much as I’d like to these days, but work is keeping me away of late. Being a freelancer, I’m just thankful to have it! I do try to keep up with most of the posts and comments on a daily basis, and want to THANK you, AKM, for all you do. Male, female, whatever–doesn’t matter, you’re keeping us all sane and moving forward, and for that, this gal in NYC is grateful.
IMHO, this Sarah voice/persona is fully fabricated and a weird combination of accents, as if her handlers are trying to cover all bases. I can visualize her vocal coach urging her to drop her “g’s”–maybe by using electric shocks, hence all the winking? 😉 How long she can keep this act up is beyond me, but I do think we saw minor lapses during the Couric interviews, when SP was truly stressed. I seem to recall watching one of her speeches on YouTube (?) dating from a few years ago, and she was speaking like a normal **cough*sputter** human. There was none of that folksy gibberish goin’ on.
My comment was eaten by your spam filter! I know, it’s no big deal, I was just so glad to find your blog and hear about how things really were in Alaska with regards to how people felt about Sarah Palin. I did put a link to my site, but I thought that was O.K. as long as I put in in the correct box under the mail (will not be published) box. Please keep writing, I live in California and we hear precious little about what is really going on up in Alaska, we need you! Come to think of it, we hear precious little about what is going on in California, but hey, that’s corporate news for ya. Oh, I just remembered that I did use the word, well, I can’t type it again for fear of the spam filter, but I promise it was not the F-bomb. More like an A-bomb, I guess. Sorry about that.
About the FAQ, first question, about your spam filter protecting us from “Japanese stuff” etc.:
Just so you know: Japan is very low on the list of spam-emitting countries. Most likely that East Asian-looking ideographic language you’re seeing in your spam is Chinese, not Japanese.
Did I forget anything?
Read the FAQ to have all your questions answered.
I have a question…I would like to order some yellow muck boots. Do you know how I might do that so that I can proudly wear them? Thanks!
