    Anyone else noticed that some new posts on certain topics are not showing when you click on
    "New Posts"? I've checked back and have listed below some of the topics not showing up for me and another member who said they're having the same problem:

    - C0R0NAVlRVS information part 2.
    - Russia approves C0VlD vaccine.
    - Lawyer Says The State is Behaving Illegally Over C0VlD.
    - Amazing: Watch This Guy Enter Vic Police Station Asking to be Fined For Not Wearing a Mask.
    - Is there a politician ‘with the spine to tell the truth’ on C0VlD: Alan Jones.
    - What important news is being overshadowed by C0R0NAVlRVS?

    It seems to be happening with subjects like C0VlD, and I was wondering if this is some type of Shad0w Bannlng, or is there something else going on here?

    Well the OP was sometimes me, so I didn't block myself, and haven't got anyone on my blocked list at the moment.

    I changed the spelling of c0vld and c0r0navlrVs, in case these topics are being Shad0w Banned.

    Im only asking just incase you blocked some one who had started them and didnt know they were the OP, I have no idea who the OP of those threads are and you didnt say you were the person to start those.
    I made that mistake once my self wondering where a thread went but then realized I had blocked the OP lol
    So I wasn't saying it tobe a smart arse

    There is currently just too much non precious metal related bloatware cluttering the Silverstackers site.
    Or maybe it's just me who is sick and tired of reading all these pseudo-intellectual ramblings that has nothing to do with stacking precious metals.
    This use to be a simple straight-forward forum for stackers to discuss precious metals, coins and numismatics!
    As a bonus this forum provided a reasonable safe marketplace to transact the buying and selling of precious metals and coins at a fair price.
    In the glory days of this forum, people posted interesting articles relating to precious metals, bullion, numismatics and coins whereas nowadays we are morphing into a political, health and economic forum with much fewer discussions about precious metals.
    I definitely prefer the original version of Silverstackers when it was more precious metal centric!

    Can't you see the correlation between precious metals and economics? o_O

    It's probably why half of us are into PMs in the first place.

    Posts in Current Affairs no longer show up under New Threads.

    It is the single most problematic aspect of this forum. The decision to exclude it from New Posts was made a while back as a balance between allowing the frankly "4chan" nature of some of the discussions in there continue, vs just deleting the subforum entirely.

    It is still completely available, and can be browsed and posted to. You just won't see responses to posts under New Posts.

    Another member just today has requested their account be closed over the nature of the content that gets posted in that subforum.

    It's seems to me that many stackers are here because they see a problem with the system, and they're looking for ways to protect themselves and their families. And that's why we have people interested in topics covering all types of investments including "Preparedness and Sustainable Living" (preppers).

    I've also found this site to be hugely valuable for finding out what's really happening behind the scenes with issues not covered by the MSM. I can also get opinions from mostly intelligent people willing to give their opinions on what's really happening. I love the fact that people constantly come up with issues that I never would have thought of or known about if I only watched the MSM.

    Yeah I went to have a look at the politics thread .
    And just didn't give a gavno about responding to anything .
    WHY ?
    The best financial advice ever is ?
    Don't listen to the noise .
    Politics is the propaganda arm of the regime .
    When I asked my geologist doc about what he thinks of the whole CV19 thing .
    His wife is also a doctor.
    It doesn't even rate on his radar .he only looks at the finance world .

    Maybe start a new room for the Karen's.

    They can discuss how they were offended or whatever.

    Stacking isnt for the tender feeling person or the easily intimidated.

    That must be Karen.

    Never give into to the Karen's! We will lose all our rights as well as free speech! GP, please ignore Karen's. It's bad enough that everyone bends to them outside this forum.
