I guess that means that you are actually running your website off your own personal page, rather than getting it hosted.
It doesn't seem relevant to anything consciousness/psi related, and we would probably disagree about the politics - so probably best not to go there!
No it's hosted but apparently the firewall I had installed was blocking certain countries, not the US though.
It doesn't have anything consciousness/psi related right now, I have yet to add a section under 'News & Research' for that, but I will soon. As for the differences in politics, that's fine, but much like Facebook, anyone can join and post whatever they like so you don't have to agree with anything to voice your opinion. Unlike FB and other media giants, I don't censor opinions I disagree with.
I should clarify my last post above, sounds a little contradictory....anyone can join Facebook and post stuff (for the most part), and on my site anyone can join and post whatever they want, but UNlike FB, I would never censor or suppress posts that I have seen them do, as well as YouTube, Twitter, etc...it's a whole other discussion, media giants and their ability to censor/suppress information, and not relevant to this forum thread so I'll try to post about it elsewhere later, but definitely something to consider I think. If certain messages and narratives are deemed "fake news" or a "threat to national security" or whatever other excuse is given to censor it, that can easily be abused. There's a serious need for a transparent and uncensored platform for discussion, on ALL matters, and my site is one of a few social networking sites that try to do that. Online forums, including the Skeptiko forum as far as I've seen, tend to be less censored from my experience but I prefer the FB design/look for communication, though I have a classic looking forum on there as well.
