      Why should I be blocked from participating in AN ENTIRE THREAD of discussion just because the discussion starter blocked me? This never used to happen, but today I find myself excluded from the wildly popular and relevant thread by Carolyn Smith entitled "Please Help Me Understand."

      I realize I'm not good enough to read the original post or any comment by the original poster, but shouldn't I at least be allowed to contribute to the TOPIC?

      I Need A Name Change

      Several months ago I requested that the name on this account be changed to my married name and was assured that it would happen. Did someone forget? Just in case, the name on the account should now be Sue Everett. I'm sure my new family would like it if it were changed soon. Thanks.

          My post I Worry about the End of this Year, under Just a Thought, has disappeared after getting many points from several people!?

          I think the editors should retrieve it or explain what happened. This isn't good, because one can start to suspect that something sinister is going on.

              I know Mike and Melissa are busy, and do this out of their own pockets too much to tell us about. I really think though, after all of these years that we change the face of Yabberz. The look, the layout, the sense that it is more than just a comment site.

              I for one would love to see it being a more of a news page type of layout, then those categories would stand out better, the content wouldn't be so overwhelmed with duplicate stories and folks could scan the pages easier for topics and pieces that interest them. Instead of sponsoring stories, likes would highlight stories for ten minutes at a time kind of thing. Right now we have more than enough content contributors and writers, but their content is being segregated by cliques and stories well hidden from view.

              I understand though that to make this happen, money, time and feedback is needed from ALL people involved. So maybe for us super users or others who would like to help this come true, we could all start putting in some real funding for this place we all use for our entertainment and news. Split up over many of us, the coding and the money wouldn't be too hard to come up with. ??? Just thinking again...

              Scrap The Categories!

              We know where good intentions lead to. When we realize that something isn't working very well we need to change it. New today, last 7 days, 1 month back etc, and voila, super simple!

                  When you own a site like Yabberz one of the first things to show up after you get so many new members posting and replying is you get duplicate main postings on the same subject and for the most part the same day. Sometimes they are a few days apart.

                  It can be tedious to create some of these post and I have myself like others I know spent hours putting a post together for Yabberz. But then you either find out later your own post is a duplicate, or someone else has created a duplicate of your post. (not intentional)

                  It brings down the value, and lets face it search engines hate duplicates of the same news content this is why many of the news sites try to be a little different but most know they are at the mercy of the search engines and of Alexa rankings. No one wants to see the same post over and over again. Plus going through the home page needs to be a great adventure and not a repetitive nightmare. But it does happen because the membership is growing and many members have somewhat like minds when it comes to content. The more members the more likely chance of it happening.

                  Many sites like Yabberz have also met their demise because of too many duplicate content. Even though we don't have a major issue with this of yet, Yabberz is heading up the ladder when it comes to membership and postings. I would hate to see Yabberz lose it's ranking because of duplicate content.

                  So could we please be working on a script checker that checks for wording and link repeating in new post so that we don't fall into a abyss along with all the other wannabes?

                      I was exploring my user page, and the graphs on points earned and shared, and noticed something that was a little out of date.

                      There at the bottom, the red label for the bar graph "Minus Ratings Given", seeing as how minus ratings have been discontinued, perhaps the breakdown needs to be updated. Since all ratings are now "Plus Ratings", maybe it could be broken down into "+1 Ratings", "+5 Ratings", and "+10 Ratings"?

                      Just an idea, but the red one is obsolete now.

                      Court Denies 10-year-old Rape Victim An Abortion

                          I know it is a hard thing to have an abortion and special if there is rape involved but an abortion at 30 weeks is hard to do for the child who carries that baby because it is a baby already with 30 weeks .

                          A rape is so horrible and I can imagine how bad she wants to get rid of this baby and having to have her predicament in the hands of a group of men even if they are doctors is terrible I can see how she feels she must want to get rid of it .

                          The doctors said she could have the baby already so why not take the baby now then why let the 10 year old girl suffer any longer it must feel like a punishment to her to wait any longer so do something already for crying out loud it is always the men who decide what has to happen with our bodies and so I can see why these women over there are protesting again better laws that would take care of the women and leave the men out of it we need more female doctors who are on our side .

                          Court denies 10-year-old rape victim an abortion

                          NEW DELHI -- A court in India has denied a 10-year-old girl permission to have an abortion after she was allegedly impregnated in a rape by her uncle.

                          The girl was allegedly raped several times by her maternal uncle, and is now 30 weeks pregnant.

                          Indian courts do not allow termination of pregnancies beyond 20 weeks, as per the 1971 Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act. Exceptions are made, however, if the fetus is proved to be genetically unviable or if the pregnancy poses a threat to the mother's life.

                          The district court in the Indian city of Chandigarh ruled that the rape survivor should carry the pregnancy to term, based on a medical advice given by the Government Medical College and Hospital in Chandigarh, where the girl was examined.

                          An eight-member committee of doctors, from paediatricians to psychiatrists, was involved in examining the girl, who has not been identified. A senior member of that panel of doctors tells CBS News that an ultrasound scan "showed she is 30-weeks pregnant. We evaluated the girl very critically and recommended a natural delivery because the fetus is viable and can survive even if delivered now."

                          "Abortion is not an option at this stage. The only way to terminate the pregnancy is to deliver the baby," said the doctor, who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity.

                          It is a peculiar case given the age of the mother. Doctors say girls that young can experience complications as the pregnancy advances, and delivery can be dangerous for both mother and the child.

                          The rape survivor has the legal option of taking her case to a higher court to seek a review of the ruling, but doctors who examined her tell CBS News the legal process would likely take more time than her case can afford given the stage of her pregnancy, and they believe she is unlikely to get a different decision anyway.

                          India's courts have ruled on a number of pleas by rape survivors seeking abortions recently where the pregnancies had gone beyond the legal limit of 20 weeks.

                          In 2015, India's top court allowed a 14-year-old rape survivor to terminate her 25-week pregnancy. In May this year, a 10-year-old girl who had carried her baby for between 18 and 22 weeks was allowed an abortion by a court in Haryana state after a medical panel concluded a delivery would endanger her life.

                          Some women's and children's rights activists feel there is a need to change the decades-old law. Proposed legislation is currently moving through India's parliament that would raise the legal limit for termination from 20 weeks to 24 weeks.

                          In one of the judgements, India's apex court said, "the right of a woman to have reproductive choice is an insegregable part of her personal liberty… She has a sacrosanct right to have her bodily integrity."

                          The issue of limits abortions is of particular significance in India, given the country's gruesome record of high-profile rape cases.

                          Official government data shows there were almost 35,000 rapes reported in India in 2015 -- about 95 every day that year.

                          I wonder how many time this has to happen, how many times do we have to hear that they is another child being left in a car while the mother go do an errand .

                          This happens so many times and it seems that nobody or let me say some mothers or fathers seem to forget that they have a child in the car because the child so quiet I guess.

                          Being so quiet is the only reason I can think of that they forget they have a child with them even if that seems hardly impossible.

                          So many time there are warnings on tv and on the radio even that you should not your child or animal in a hot car while you run an errand IT WILL KILL THEM , don't you get that how hard is that to keep that in mind are you that are you that dense or are you just plain stupid to not to keep that in your brain I can't stretch enough that you need to TAKE THAT CHILD OUT OF THE CARE when you get out to go shopping or even just pick up a jar of milk. Better even leave the child home if you have that possibility.

                          So here it is let it sink in will ya take the child out of the car or leave it home but DON'T LEAVE IT IN A HOT CAR. I know I am yelling but darn it it makes me so mad that after all these warnings people still behave reckless and oh so stupid and children die because of it and the same goes for animals , if I see something like that in the parking lot you better beware because I will smack your window open.
