Great to hear from you....actually great to hear from ANYONE other than Ukranian and other Eastern bloc trolls wanting to discuss advertising.    I've blocked and banned at least two dozen since the start of last year.

I remember the pizza party--that was a great night.  Unfortunately I had to cut out early.

Stand strong and stay safe!

Thanks for you input....and your contributions on some of the other topic boards as well.

This has been a very strange year (duh!) and part of the strangeness has been the near demise of this forum. 

We went all through the impeachment and COVID acute crisis with almost no activity until mid summer.

Again, thank!

Checking the forum about once a week for substantive new posts/discussion;  always finding none but occasionally discovering an Eastern European or African troll like the one who has started this thread and who is about to be banned.

Averaging 1-2 bans per month.

The most fundamental purpose and obligation of government is to protect its citizens.

A government which fails to safeguard against "all enemies, foreign or domestic" is deserving of alteration or abolition.

Totally agree....these are the "unintended consequences" of politicians capitulating to howling mobs.

BTW your post is the FIRST substantive, non-trolling post ALL YEAR. 

June 30 was going to be my deadline for contacting the other Adminstrator and recommending we close the account...now I'm going to push that off another six months. 

Keep posting!

So in the final weeks of the lame duck reign of terror the team of Chris "Slash, 'cause I'm a 'fiscal conservative'" Reilly and Byrne decided not only to inflict an utterly unknowledgable and inexperienced sports promoter as the Director of Voter Registration and Elections; they also decided to play a cruel bait and switch game of "now you see it, now you don't" with sorely needed redistricting of some of the County's fastest growing muncipalities and therefore most overburdened polling places.

True to their pattern, they most unconservatively doled out a five figure contract to a consulting firm--whose recommendations they chose to ignore....except for one.

And even that one comes with a caveat.,

West Manheim Township will finally be divided into TWO polling places.   Not the THREE as recommended by the pricey expert consultant.

While other rapidly growing Townships like Carroll and Springfield--also recommended for multiple polling places (one of which sent a strong letter to the Commissioners requesting a division) will be left to stew in their juices.

The real juice is the pizzing away taxpayer resources on a feel-good study that, in the end, was not worth the paper it was printed on.

The same apparent worth as letter from municipal officials.

Which last I checked wasn't even accorded the decency of acknowledgement much less reply.,

To the new Commissioners:  Please create your own legacy.   You don't want to continue building on the previous Board's house of cards.

As the title suggests, the hometown press has morphed into a coast-to-coast monster.

Bigger is not better....especially when it comes to "customer service.".

Oh, there is service alright--of the type that the stud bull delivers to a cow.

When I moved to my present address nearly three decades ago the friendly delivery route supervisor (who I could speak with in person on the phone) personally helped locate a stake with two tubes:  A yellow one for the Daily Record and a red one for the York Dispatch.   The tubes were placed about 10 feet off the road, along the side of my very long lane.   Most of the time the papers were delivered into the tubes.   Occasionally, if they were just thrown onto the driveway a call to 717-764-5663 would solve the problem.

When the Dispatch began morning distribution I could no longer justify the expense of two morning newspapers.  I stuck with the YDR; but noticed a drop in customer service responsiveness.   Instead of speaking with a live operator there was an automated system which worked pretty well--enter your phone number, enter other numerals on prompts....missed papers were quickly dealt with.

Then somewhere along the line...at either the MediaOne absorbtion or Gannett...the keypad automated system was replaced by one which only recoginized voice commands.   And they had to be precise.  "Which newspaper are you calling about, the York Daily Record or the York Dispatch".   If you didn't include the definite article THE York Daily Record and just said "York Daily Record" or "Daily Record" the system would kick you back to the beginning or disconnect.

Now, if I had been the programmer, or the VP, I would have either added to the instruction:  "Be sure to state the full name of the newspaper, including the definite article THE"--OR--arranged the system to respond to several variation and abbreviations of the names.  But customer service--other than in the bovine sense--was clearly not the goal.
