    Originall found this site via a google search, bookmarked it and read it from my bookmark daily.

    How does Doc.C. know that we are “unique individuals?” Some of us are Obama-clones.
    CLONE-POWER!

    Ditto.

    I come here enough that I don’t even need the bookmark at all. I just type “o” in my browser and it is remembered as a recently visited site and pops right up. All I have to do then is hit enter & voila!

    I’m surprised that Dr. C. left out bookmarks and just typing the address from memory as choices…when so many of your responders are choosing “Other”, than your option choices are insufficient and don’t include the most likely choices.

    DG: I have it bookmarked as well or type in the address, depending on the computer I’m using.

    found through google search
    visit daily the lazy way, relying on FF’s url autocomplete
    track conversations wiht “recent comments”
    have never dug into the archives (my loss)
    the people, sense of humor, atmosphere of academic inquiry, and consistency, make it a great place

    I do wish there was a greater variety in the conspiracies re: Obama, but birtherism knocks everything else aside. not OCT’s problem … Obama could help by being more controversial, less squeaky clean, and the nuts could get some more sophitication. Maybe next year.

    How about a sister site, “Rational Objections to Obama”, since rationally opposing theman seems to be hard to do? Develop policy and ideological memes that are reasonable objections, for people who for whatever reason can’t stand him, but wish to avoid the trap of birtherism. Could also be a resource for recovering birthers. No doubt it would be a spectacular dud.

    First good site I found when I started looking up idiotic comments about Obama not being eligible.

    I read your site daily. The recent comments section alerts me to ongoing activity in posts that aren’t on the first page. I don’t have much use for twitter.

    Same technique here.

    First, I look for new blog entries. Then I use the recent comments section, as J. Potter described.

    I subscribe to the RSS feed and the Twitter feed, and check the shite manually for comments from time to time.

    I use different methods since I have different devices (pad, smart phone, laptop, etc,) which have their own strengths and weaknesses. So how I read depends on where I am and what bit of technology is at hand.

    Love your site. Thank you for your dedication to the truth.

    Fascinated by the birther logic, and all the crazy places it goes. I mostly went to the Taitz site because of the public meltdowns. The Stephen Colbert thing was hilarious , and I don’t think she realizes she was being mocked.

    After tiring of Orly and her band of merry morons, I typed Obama Birth Conspiracy into google. The first place I went was Fellowship of the Minds. Quite possible the worst blog ever.

    I remember scrolling through 2 or 3 pages of sites before I got to this one, so maybe I typed something else. I thought it would be another birther site. I am so glad I was wrong.

    The design, the discussions, the organization all said; this is a place for information.

    It is now bookmarked, and one of my favorite sites.

    Seriously, the B.C background made me laugh out loud. Dr. C, you have created a great site.

    Exactly. It is one thing to study the various forms of cognitive bias in class. It is quite another to witness it in progress, as it evolves and changes to adapt to reality.

    I come around 2-3 times per day (except weekends), it’s in my “most visited sites” overview in Google Chrome.

    Comes second after Post & Email (I check there first for the latest whacky stuff); third is BadFiction, fourth Orly, fifth NativeBornCitizen. If I have time, I check WND and use the opportunity they’re having a non-censored comments section right now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Majority Will: Have you ever run into Inspector Smith (I presume)?

    Sir Henry Morton Stanley, GCB, was a Welsh journalist and explorer famous for his exploration of Africa and his search for David Livingstone. Upon finding Livingstone, Stanley allegedly uttered the now-famous greeting, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?”

    Stanley travelled to Zanzibar in March 1871 and outfitted an expedition with the best of everything, requiring no fewer than 200 porters. This 7,000 miles (11,000 km) expedition through the tropical forest became a nightmare. His thoroughbred stallion died within a few days after a bite from a Tsetse fly, many of his carriers deserted and the rest were decimated by tropical diseases.

    Stanley found Livingstone on 10 November 1871, in Ujiji near Lake Tanganyika in present-day Tanzania, and…greeted him with the now-famous, “Doctor Livingstone, I presume?”
