  1. 100K Posts

    As of today, KOTW has 94,923 posts. It's been almost 14 years since this new Message Board went live and there were 2 years of prior posts that were lost to history unless someone downloaded them and saved them. With all honesty, Facebook has stolen our thunder and also the lack of time to post articles on our main page and review of posts on a more frequent basis than once a day (sometimes we even fail that goal) has reduced the interaction on this Message Board. This board is not going away. Don't worry. It will remain as the place where you can anonymously provide important information with no fear of direct retaliation. We edit when necessary using our own guidelines. Nothing on the internet is totally anonymous so be aware of that. For those interested in reviewing old posts, you can search for them but make sure you expand the default time period so you get a complete search of keywords that you are looking for. We are proud of our contribution to the West Hudson area. We'd like to think we keep people honest but maybe we are just kidding ourselves. We are 5077 posts away from 100K so keep posting and maybe let others know of KOTW what we consider a treasure of information on Kearny, Harrison, East Newark and North Arlington. KOTW

  3. KOTW has discovered an issue with Guest Posting which was caused by an update several weeks ago. The following is a temporary work around. The issue is as follows: If you forget to put in a name in Guest Field and write your post and complete the Security puzzle, you will be prompted to enter a Guest Field name. The only problem is that the Security puzzle does not re-generate (appear again) and you will not be able to post since you need to successfully complete the puzzle before the post will be accepted. The Puzzle is necessary because of Spam bots which in years past attacked the board. Therefore, please make sure you complete the Guest Field name before writing your post. KOTW apologizes for this bug and the next update will correct this issue.
  4. Update on this issue: An update has been installed which now allows a Guest poster who forgot to enter a name in the Name field to enter a name after filling the Security puzzle. Please note that the Puzzle will not reappear unless it was done incorrectly. You can enter the Guest name and submit and it will be placed in the KOTW post review queue. This resolves this issue. Thanking everyone for your patience. KOTW

  10. the worm is starting to turn

    KOTW has taken the unprecedented step of hiding a post from public view. The poster used the last name of a poster who resides in Harrison and who did not want his last name associated with the content of the post. It should be noted that since KOTW allows anonymous posts it is not possible to trace beyond an IP address (which can be used by many individuals) the author of the initial post. KOTW

  17. KOTW Observer, KOTW's policy is to allow an open discussion. We do not however allow the blatant post designed to "bump" a prior discussion thread without adding any additional content. With respect to the content of this thread, the initial post was allowed because Bernadette McDonald is an elected official. The veracity of the initial statement has been challenged. We have now allowed your initial post "Good Point. Happy New Year" and other posts which barely border on being additional content. As one of KOTW's fans pointed out years ago, you can always start your own Website and Discussion Board and post everything you want there. KOTW

  19. Thank you for your post and link. KOTW has updated the initial post to include a more detailed note indicating that the initial post was allowed because Bernadette McDonald is an elected official and that the statement may be false. During elections many things are said about candidates and their supporters. Not all of them are true but if you are running for office and/or an elected official they come with the job. KOTW
