    What's up with the clean slate?

    Did we do an archive purge? The page certainly does load a lot faster. That's a plus!

        Depending on who your server host is, technical support is most likely available.

        I'd like to help you out, but it's been a while for me and I had similar issues running my own sites. Sometimes the simplest things are the ones that give you the most trouble.

        I never liked WordPress, but it's one of those things you have to live with if you're going to run Intense Debate.

        Plugins and apps are like clothes. They tell you that "one size fits all", but "actual experiences may vary".

        Keep plugging away at it. I'm sure you'll get it figured out eventually. GB's 912 site used to crash with predictable regularity, you'll recall. That was an archiving issue as well. Whenever it got to 30,000 comments you knew the site was going to lock up.

        If you want to bounce any ideas off of me, you can shoot me an email. I've still got all my computer science books on the shelf.

    OK, that thread on gun control is getting too small to read…let’s continue here folks….

    I am happy to see a good debate going on with this issue…..

    Let’s look at a country that actually did a gun ban and what happened to crime rates…..

    And the crickets are starting to get tired….
