Wow. Working towards enabling POSSE (Publish Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere) is...um...fun. I'm moving slowly forward, getting syndication working manually, trying to get things to work properly without intervention. Hasn't happened yet; I can manually repost most blogposts (potentially including this one) and get them to post to FB and G+, but auto-posting isn't working yet. AFAICT, it's something to do with the builtin WP-Cron. In other words, now I have two problems...sigh.

Also having issues with brid.gy (the synchronization of replies and likes etc. back to my site), but that's actually working fairly well. I'm not mad; this entire process is complicated, fidgety, and pretty brittle. It's interesting to work through this entire thing, and I expect that we'll resolve these issues eventually. It's kinda fun!

+Thomas Gideon +Dave Slusher Hey guys...debugging my SNAP settings. What "Message Format" are you using in your post options for G+ and FB? I'm having some issues, and I'm wondering if it's because I'm using %FULLTEXT%; for G+ at least, some of my (manual repost) posts are just never completing. Test post does go through, however, so it's not password-related (presumably).

Any thoughts appreciated!

Thanks, Dave! I started experimenting with other tags after I posted this, and %RAWTEXT% was looking more promising. I appreciate your confirmation of that. Bit by bit, things seem to be sliding into place...

Not everyone will agree to this.
Not everyone has to.
There are many who may be the exception; but many more fall in one of these two categories.
What you have, who you know, and the family you're born into has so much to do with the kind of opportunities you're afforded.
And how many brilliant people are never discovered because of it?

Which are also subject (at least in theory!) to judicial review. Lauren, I'm not naive enough to think that any of this is going to stop tomorrow...we live in a world where the tools of surveillance are easier to deploy and use every day.

I'm also not apathetic enough, however, to stop protesting legislation, policies, and proposals (be they government or corporate) that I consider unwise, unethical, or illegal.  

Pervasive societal surveillance is (most probably) inevitable. But a continuing debate regarding transparency, expanse, and reciprocity (yeah, I read "Transparent Society" every couple of years or so!) is critical, IMO.
