Erroneous Hit Counters, Disappearing Shares and Distracted Bloggers

So, it’s been a while, but I’m back and the technical anomalies of this blog site are sadly still here. Having got 3295 visits in 5 minutes flat back when, the hit counter on this site promptly and permanently froze, leaving me with no idea what the true visitor stats were/are.

No matter how many times you visit this website or from where, it will still claim you are the 3295th visitor. Despite the counter being non-functioning, I’m going to leave it up as a relic of the sabotage activism websites encounter.

It is now standard for activism websites share counters to reset themselves. For hit counters to freeze or wind themselves backwards (!!) and for the authors of the websites to become beleaguered by IRL interferences that have a collective aim of covertly persuading them to discontinue their blogging escapades.

For while there is money in #DirtyPolitics, there is little to none in whistleblowing. Which is apparently just as the system prefers it.

While the realities of the sabotage are foreign, “conspiracy theories” to the MSM, recent events in the political and media sphere in New Zealand are almost guaranteed to have increasingly exposed some of those previously insulated, protected journalists to the uncomfortable realm of state and profit-driven tinkering in their work and in their lives.

For those my words will ring true.

Democracy is a full-time job, I have been told. Thus I have, temporarily at least, prised myself away from the grip of commercial employment and returned to the blogosphere.

I have no idea what the coming weeks will bring to Aotearoa, New Zealand, other than that it will be unprecedented. #DirtyPolitics has been that, for sure, and Kim Dotcom, Glenn Greenwald and Julian Assange being at “The Big Reveal” on September 15th at the Auckland Town Hall promises a big finish to the roller-coaster ride of the last 3 years.

Even though the hit counter and share buttons may not show whether you’re with us; I know you are.

This is just a short note but you can expect more soon.
