no comments in 4 days on any Prosper blog at blog.prosper.com
« on: December 16, 2007, 11:15:45 am »

activity is dead. what is happening?

ETA

Could this be the reason? bamalucky discovered Prosper is using a crypto-deletion feature in their blogs. Bamaluckys thread about it is here:
http://prospers.org/forum/index.php?topic=4366.0

also, mercurio discovered the san francisco chronicle is using the same feature. his post about it is here:
http://prospers.org/forum/index.php?topic=4440.msg64826#msg64826

a blurb about crypto-deletion as it relates to the san francisco chronicle can be found here:

I mean reader comments. They seem to be dwindling.

Perhaps you could link to the topic where (was it Bamalucky?) posted about his experience when posting a comment?

I found it, and it sounds like a reasonable explanation. I added the information to the original post.

In short, for those unaware, Prospers blog comment feature makes it appear, that your comment has been posted & visible, when in truth you are the only person who can see your comment (Its stored in a cookie on your computer).

This gives prospers blogs the deceptive appearance of an open discussion system, where in truth, they just tricked you into thinking your comments are accepted.

I dont believe the official Prosper blog does this anymore...
