    I’m amazed the video survived. Hopefully the cop that tripped the biker can be identified.

    And people still think the cops are the good guys.

    Thugs, enemies all.

    Is anyone else having this problem? On multiple browsers only loads posts from June 8 and earlier. To see more recent posts, I have to click on June 2011 from the archive drop-down menu. Really weird.

    Best (meaning worst) part was the two cops telling him to “get up” and “get down” again and again. No doubt, he was resisting a lawful order because he failed to comply with (one of) the officers.

    I’m experiencing the same problem from machines at home but not at work. I’ve tried multiple browsers and flushed caches. I was figuring it was a problem with my ISP maybe caching the page.

    @4: Try to flush your DNS cache. The website apparently changed hosts at some point, but your computer has probably cached it’s old location.

    Jay and Mason, try taking out your totem to test if this is a dream. Also, don’t go to your bank or anything like that. Inception, man. Inception.

    Heroes. True American heroes.

    Can we come up with a police “professionalism” bingo board? These arent even surprising any more, and you know exactly how the goddamned admin is going to handle it.
    Which will it be this time? No finding of errors, paid suspension, internal policy review or big civilian payout?

    Seriously, the cops have gone too far now:

    Never stop women from wearing sexy skirts. NEVER! This is clearly the proof that cops are without any redeeming value and are most likely aliens.

    Thanks Mason and Chris. I dumped my browsers’ caches, but nothing changed. Then magically after I posted my comment…the webpage loaded correctly. Who knows.

    Boyd, I wasn’t going to the bank today, but I did plan to open the random safe sitting in my living room that I never knew I had.

    Jay, it will be back. As soon as I post a comment (any little remark) on the article from the 8th and hit the home button I actually get the most recent posts. However, as soon as I close my browser–back to the beginning. I have tried multiple computers, multiple browsers, and multiple locations (home, work, coffee shop, library) all with the same results. As to the cache idea. I had my sister–who would have never gone on the Agitator site (total sheep) of her own accord–try and she also got the 8th. Hey Radley–give us a hand and have your tech guy fix this–we (many of your readers) can’t all of a sudden be doing something dumb en mass–can we?—can we? hey guys, can we?

    I too am experiencing the “deja vu” Agitator page on my old computer (windows XP). My new computer, plugged into the exact same router, works perfectly.

  15. #15 |  BamBam | 

    me too with the site load problems at home

  16. #16 |  Burlyman78 | 

    Me too on the website not loading up to date posts, unless I go to the archive and manually select “June 2011,” or access it via Pulse on my iphone.

    @Jay (comment #4 above) and others – same here; it’s not a cache issue, and the same problem exists in four different browsers and on my tab as well as 3 PCs. I’ve used the tab on 3 different wifi networks and on 3G (hence, several different ISPs) so it’s not ISP-level caching.

    It is almost certainly a CMS (content management system – ie, server side, backend) issue.

    That said: the RSS feed (to which I subscribe) is always up to date; if you have a modern browser you can use the RSS feed link instead of the homepage link.

    @Chris Rhodes – it would be staggering to me if some combination of browser, router and OS caching could yield the results we see. This box (running Ubuntu 11.04) doesn’t cache at the OS level, and nor does my router… yet I get the same behaviour for the Agitator homepage on Chrome, Chromium, Opera and Firefox.

    I’ve seen this same phenomenon in the past with other sites, but never for more than two or three days (e.g., during DNS repropagation after a hosting change).

    I’ve had the same browser issue and it’s a little mysterious. I can browse normally using my old Netscape 9 browser and everything is up to date, but this site’s home page is a week old using any other browser I have installed (Firefox 4 and IE 8). That makes it seems like a local page cache issue, except that 1) it doesn’t happen to Netscape 2) I’ve cleared the browser caches (and cleared my PC’s DNS cache), and 3) some many others are having the same problem.

    Anyway, others having this problem might want to try a different browser. Here’s the link for Netscape 9. I don’t know about Opera, etc.

    Boyd that too sexy to ride lady is hopeless. She would have to wear a burka.

    I had difficulties with the site for one day, only; I was getting the error message “this host does not exist”, then suddenly there it was and I’ve had no problem since, using Chrome on a Vista machine.

    Got a weird message when hitting the Coral Content Distribution Network:

    Error when attempting to use the Coral Content Distribution Network (

    The redirect returned by the server was either missing a location or would result in a loop. The latter may happen when a site redirects users to Coral without checking (via UserAgent, for example) that the requester is not a Coral proxy itself. Please report this problem to the server if possible.

    Also, if it was just the DNS cache, things would have resolved by itself in about 24 hours.

    Critical Mass vs. The Cops.

    You’re not supposed to pick one over the other; you’re supposed to pray for a meteor strike!

    This vid has been around for a while. This is where those video/report databases should come in handy. Somebody make a handy app to make it easy to use them please.
