IS IGNORANCE BAD FOR US?

They say that: “With the advent of the Internet, there is no excuse for ignorance.”
Unfortunately, ignorance is responsible for a lot of preventable pain, and unnecessary suffering.
People often ask me the following questions: “How many types of cancer are there? Is MONSANTO
FOOD safe? Is TAP WATER safe to drink? Does some food contain radio-active isotopes?
ALL THE ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS ARE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO GOOGLE AND TYPE THE RELEVANT QUESTION.

On a happier note, I would like to announce that “yours truly”, put ANOOX ON THE GLOBAL
GOOGLE MAP! If you go to GOOGLE, and type the words: JOHN ROMER’S ANOOX POSTS, you
will be able to read a selection of my POSTS. The wonders of modern technology!
Kind Regards,
John Romer

As this topic is about ignorance concerning the internet, let's stay to the point! I just got a report from anoox that my site at ciskano1.com was searched 73,386 during the past 30 days with one click! That's what I call ignorance as the site has entirely free music videos that I embed from Youtube. It is up to the public to tell me what I should put there - the current ones are just a few of my favorites and there is plenty of space to put in more. There is a direct link to my comments area where anyone can tell me what I must show and what not. Perhaps, the colors I use do not fit. Please tell me what you think and especially requests are most welcome! PS. There is a list of more categories in the navigation area at the left of the page - please check the out.

Apparently you do not understand how the internet currently works. Did you check to see HOW MANY of those clicks were from ROBOTS and NOT real people? Based on your post, I doubt it. Most likely the VAST MAJORITY of those clicks came from robots (like Googlebot), not real people. Another portion came from people driven there from search engines trying to find SOMETHING ELSE, which means the search engine sent them on a wild goose chase & they did not find what they were looking for.

I just visited your site. All I get is a blank white page with a menu to the left, a header, & NO CONTENT below the comment link encouraging me to look further. You NEED to fill that white space with some type of call to action content. I left immediately because there was no VISIBLE reason to remain on your site.

Thanks for your visit and the comments. I replied, but the message did not go through. Any case, what i actually said amounts to the fact that you did not read my stuff properly, because i said THERE WAS ONLY ONE CLICK AND NO OTHER VISITS. Those thousands were mere searches on search engines. So your point that I do not understand the internet entirely falls through the floor. And now we touched one of the causes of ignorance: jumping to conclusions without proper reading what is said.

The white space might be browser related as it works perpectly on this side and elsewhere! Just make sure that your infrastructure can handle all those "unperfect" stuff of the internet before cracking one down!

"Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance." -- George Bernard Shaw
Today not knowing something just requires a proper education. It is the lies that often pass for education that creates false knowledge. This is in great supply on places like Anoox, where the U.S., her people and her current president are falsely maligned, from within and from outside of the country.

I reread your original post and no where does it give ANY indication that you understood how the internet works. Based on your current reply, you are implying that the robots should click a SECOND time on your site to leave feedback via your link. That implication is entirely asinine. If you cannot lay out your issues CLEARLY, you will constantly get people misunderstanding what you wrote.

As for the white space, you are now blaming the user for f***d up coding on your part. Really makes no difference to me if WANT TO LIMIT YOUR USER BASE, but if you really wanted everyone to view your content you would fix whatever issues you have with your site. Whining about people not viewing your content WHEN YOUR SITE IS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY shows YOUR lack of RESPONSIBILITY. Fix your site & MAYBE you will get better numbers, just not from me since you don't want me to view it.

Thanks, you have made your statement and I will not be offended. I will most certainly keep on trying to fix what is wrong and would appreciate inputs of any kind. Just an afterthought - I did not say that I know the internet, in fact I try every day after more then 20 years to understand it, but it is ever changing while i do not get younger!

Thanks to this discussion, I found the reason for my ignorance: not keeping up with new developments! In short, Flash not supported by some browsers anymore, YouTube upgraded it's player code, I neglected to use certain browser brands for testing my creations. Fortunately, I had the courage to accept my ignorance and did something about it - this would not have been the case if I kept on blaming others and the system for my obstacles!

piet, good for you. Now if everyone would see and acknowledge their shortcomings instead blaming others, the whole world would be a better place.

I went back to your landing page. It looks a lot better and will probably retain visitors beyond one click.

Of course IGNORANCE BAD FOR US. Just look at USA who has been filled by "IGNORANCE" fueled and funded by Wall Street based Billionaire Cabal, leading to USA being engaged in War after War and one mass shooting after another mass shooting, etc. Misery, all of which HORROR Trump and Republicans Champion, proving how truly bad is "IGNORANCE" for US.

Just look at Gurdy if you want a perfect example of ignorance. His ignorance surpasses the ignorance of most every one else. Not only does he have the ignorance gene like the rest of us, he actually puts his ignorance on public display for all to see. Most people either avoid subjects requiring knowledge, or hide their ignorance of those subjects, but not him.

It is Germany that is loading its society with Islamic refugees, who will, within a few years make Berlin the capital of their califate.
The new people, if they choose to work will not support the German health care system and sets it up to crash. A total lack of health care won't matter, in Germanistan anyway.

Only in the mind of the Hate filled and Fear filled American psychos made so by Fox and rightwing Media outlets in USA, aka Fake News, leading to the Sociopath Trump, is:

"Germany loading its society with Islamic refugees"

The fact is that refuges we accepted to Germany, whom made refuges by US/Israel Wars on Iraq & Syria, etc.., are producing far far less crimes that typical American Cities which are wrecked by mass shootings and general shootings. After you miserable cock roaches just had a

mass shooting in Vegas, by a White Christian BTW, which KILLED 59 of your People and inured 500+, etc. Horror after another, Whereas here in Germany as in UK or Sweden or Denmark, etc. with all the " Islamic refugees" that we are taking in thanks to US/Israel Wars, we have not had 59 Killed in a mass shooting over last TEN Years. So worry about your f8cked up miserable county which is ranked at the bottom of all lists for quality of life and not us Rich and Prosperous Europeans. ^!^

Gurd, well said my German friend. And yes we have been turned into the most miserable country compared to European Nations, to the laughing stock of the planet, thanks to the Wall Street Cabal that is behind this Sociopath Trump. And these People such as ThomatOurStore are best example of total Information War, total Mind Job that this Wall Street Cabal done to USA :(

More bullshit from the basement dwellers. Limiting the window to a MEASLY ten years is stupid. That is not even ONE generation.

Look at the last HUNDRED years and ALL of the deaths due to MASS SHOOTINGS in the U.S. PALE in comparison to the MASS SHOOTINGS in Europe, HUNDRED's versus MILLION's! No wonder cognizant people never believe basement dwellers!

Gurd, even a "White Christian", influenced by liberalism, can think that a mass killing is a good thing. All of the perps that commit them here are creatures of the left-wing.

Duh, of course ignorance is bad for us. AND ALL OF US ARE IGNORANT. None of us will ever live long enough to banish our OWN ignorance.

The internet can easily be an ignorance multiplier. For example just look at 0bama's presidency, RealNewsPost members and the Clinton campaign.
