Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Dec 5, 2012, 07:11 PM

Fare Thee Well, DU.

I have been posting a collection of pics each week, in response to a kindness I cannot ever re-pay, or thank you enough. Four years ago, my father passed away suddenly, and this community, as one, came to my aid and made my grief a bearable burden.

I have always considered this a debt I can never repay.

After the events of this past Sunday, it appears that it is time to consider that debt paid, and in full.

I love you all, but when the innocuous can be taken as something other than it is, it's time to move along.

Mr. Allen, I'll take mine with bacon and sausage.

Godspeed DU.

Robert John Gatenby

You KNOW how many of us enjoy your Sunday Lolcats...Mr. Dixie and I have a morning coffee ritual of reading them together...
ONE moron's bitchy snide blast is most certainly not worth you...leaving the site?????

If you felt flamed by that comment, perhaps just a wee vacation is needed, at most?????

I remember when my mom died. DU sure rose to the occasion to console me, and I felt as though people here were keeping vigil with me during that first night as I tried to wrap my mind around her death. This is a good place, for all its disagreements and warts and wrinkles. Please reconsider, dear friend.

106. Don't be a dickhead

This isn't some random idiot flouncing off - this is a valuable member of the DU community who entertained a lot of us every Sunday.

Most of us post our opinions or personal experiences, but a few DU members contribute so much more - like those who do yeoman's work pulling together photo contests or political cartoon threads. Bob was one of those who made DU more fun for a large number of members.

They are good, and know how to walk the fine line between disruption and getting tombstoned. I am always wary of join dates after 08. No, not everyone who has come here since then is a disruptor, but a lot of disruptors have recent join dates.

188. Jeff, its strange times when you and I agree. But lately, I dunno, the attacks are personal

Fundamental attacks on credibility, sources, experience, history...

What's even more bizarre is that this is a LOUNGE thread. Entertaining is the modus operandi!

Those of us who are "real believers" (tm?) who duke it out in the "serious forums" have some history and yet we still TRY to converse.... This isn't that (I think). If I'm almost finished here, and I have seriously tough skin, then who are we driving away??

There are valuable "voices" that crave dialogue, not diatribe.

233. Agreed. Lately though? Even long term posters "calling out" other LT posters over bullshit

its like the place has suddenly got purge mania....

Nobody seems to be reading for context or nuance - just vocabulary and literalism.

Sad.

286. That may be it. But honestly, I've been slammed myself and been pretty shocked

lately at who, and why. I'm pretty tough and wade into some "big" battles (circumcision, porn, burqas, middle east, I/P. Obama critique and "worse") and then find I'm in heated rhetoric wars over... food banks or poverty issues?! (where we all agree basically) So the "attacks" are infinite degrees of difference elevated to destruction of long term relationships.

Its very disheartening. And feels designed to "purge".

If SCE had experienced any of that elsewhere, this one single poster may have pushed him over the edge.

I can certainly relate.

After >10 years on DU, I got accused of being a sock-puppet troll, complete with nasty pix--by someone who'd been here a couple years.

It definitely dampened my enthusiasm for the place for a while--right around the election too.

Hope SCE changes his mind--getting away for a little while does help.

I would get there my reply seemed like it wouldn't mean much, but even if I didn't make it on Sunday, you always replied. It said a good deal about you.

What said to you was OTT, but really I understand if you must move on. I was on a site for many years, but when the day came I wouldn't allow any more abuse, I walked away and never looked back. I respect your decision, but wish you would reconsider.

That poster is going on my Ignore list now and the replies were hidden. The poster's transparency page said it all, this was not about you. Was just looking for a chance to find something wrong here.

Very sorry about this.

169. I am with you on this

I am new here and I have yet to see how the cartoon was a reason for someone to object let alone for the contributor with the most innocent and joyful posts on Sunday would be "pizza'd" (whatever that refers to as far as reason for being ousted).

Whomever it was that had objections to the cartoon was way out of line and was relying on some convoluted pretzel logic to come up with their objection... honestly. And whomever it was that made such a decision to reprimand this person for the incident needs to reconsider, you certainly went after the wrong person. There was absolutely no malicious intent there and I am really upset that someone who makes the effort to screw up a good thing for so many people could do so over something completely innocent... the complaining party needs to get some counseling.

And considering a number of pretty offensive to a wide variety of us that gets a pass, makes one wonder about the rationale on how the OP individual ended up being the one to leave. Trolls suck and this is why.

Whomever it was that cause this ruckus must really be thrilled with their ability to make so many others unhappy, I guess it's true... misery loves company and this would be one of many examples.

Sorry for the sad parting, I love cats (and all other animals) but can't have pets where I am and that was my Sunday fix.



All because of one person who can't stand others having something to be happy about, it appears. Reminds me of some other folks on the national scene...

I believe in, have fought for, and continue to fight for equality but seriously, the comment about the Superman comic was ludicrous.

134. There was no "issue"

Someone just whined that a cartoon that was posted in the thread was violent against woman (a cartoon showing a woman flying on Superman's back, and she starts getting chatty, and Superman drops her).

She then implied that SCE was probably a mean person in real life because he didn't immediately delete the offending/
"triggering" cartoon.

I think it's a case of taking a lot of time accumulating and compiling LOLs, and then having someone shit on it. There's a certain feeling of "I'm doing this to bring you people joy, and instead, I get sniping? Well, fuck off." (<-- my take, not his)

I don't go to the Lounge, so I haven't been there to support you. I simply trusted that you were doing what made you happy, and that what you did made lots of other DUers happy too. I figured you had found your place of comfort and fulfillment, and that it was all good.

I have no idea what happened this past Sunday to mess that up, it had to have been something truly despicable since you are one of the most gentle, sweet souls I have ever gotten to know here. Fie on the soulless barbarian(s) who has (have) chased you off!

I cannot be silent about you leaving. You touched my heart deeply long ago and I will never forget that. I will wish you well whatever happens, but I would so much prefer that you could find a way to change your mind and stay. No matter what, please take my unconditional affection and heartfelt regard with you.

You will always have a place in my heart.

Please don't go because some mean spirited woman (presumably) is offended. If you never offend anyone in your life, you're not living right. Loving kitties like I do, and apparently you love them too, it will be much less fun if you go. Please stay.

I don't post often these days but I've enjoyed reading here almost every day since the election catastrophe of 2000 when I discovered this place. You, Robert John Gatenby, have the Very Best screen name in all of DU... seriously! And your Sunday LOL cats are a gift that always makes me smile. My kids love your LOLcats too!

So you see Salmon, we all will miss you terribly if you go. So please do reconsider. You are one of the best here.

96. With all apologies...

I think you're over-reacting if this has to do with the Superman comic.

I see one person in that thread who vocalized a complaint whose judgement is suspect anyways since they went on to vocalize one of the most disgusting POVs I've ever encountered at DU regarding what they find funny: deer-maulings. (and I say that as a militant anti-hunting activist who has worked in the field combating poaching.)

I see several posters rally to your defense; nobody condoning what femrap posted or agreeing with her.

I see no reason to let yourself be run off by the likes of one poster.

You're a treasure. Don't go.

223. Can't speak for SCE, but it's like the straw that breaks the camel's back

I do the newsletter for my little Quaker Meeting.

One of the old biddies who has nothing better to do than complain came over to take me to task for a typo.

I said "Really, Nancy? How about if you write it then? Seriously. I am ready to hand that job over to you RIGHT NOW."

She looked a little frightened (I'm 6' and she was about 5'), and my reaction was in no way proportional to her tiny complaint, but I think it's the feeling that you spend a lot of time compiling something and putting it all together, and then someone actually complains. About something you are volunteering to do. Grrr.

Off to frighten more Quakers....

Let me put it in election terms: for you, 1 vote against and a thousand million for. Sounds like you won in a landslide. But if you have to go, just know you're very muh loved and will be missed.

You've been a wonderfully consistent poster and it's a damned shame that someone with a gigantic chip on their shoulder singled you out in such an awful fashion over such a silly thing. I'd like to agree with those who are telling you to just shrug it off, but I understand why you feel that the field has been salted and cannot be renewed. Some ugliness will do that - even if others don't find it so bad.

Thank you for your efforts to brighten this place up - for you rare but always interesting posts outside the lounge - and for your honesty.

Take care, Robert. You'll be missed around this place.

113. Okay, that did seem pretty personal, about you, but I'd bet money it's no where near

the average perception of that Super Man cartoon. I am strongly in support of developing a fuller awareness of misogyny and committing to women's rights, their freedom, and pay equity, but I thought the Super Man cartoon was really funny. I think being threatened by stuff like that does more damage than good, because it distracts from the more authentic issues.

That response to that cartoon looked like someone TRYING to give Feminism a bad name to me. It represents an obsolete perception of Feminism that lots of people, some of them the most knowledgeable and experienced people I know on this issue, are running away from.

Please, just put her on ignore and continue playing with the rest of us. She doesn't represent DU or DU's attitude toward you and your lol cat posts, and she never will.

I don't want to burden you with my wishes, but I think it's easy to say that you delight far, far more people here than you know. I selfishly think it's quite unfair that one cranky person should be able to deny the rest of us your company. You may find th LOLcats more and more of a burden, and I respect it if you have to leave for your own reasons.

I wish we could all vote on this one, in a kind of a reverse-ostracism way.

times on DU, & it feels bad. A couple of times it seemed like a coordinated attack with similar language and calling me names - I suspect it was a "troll" event because the language was different but similar to RW talking points. I share my story because there are posters out that that do the concern / attack thing very well. And quite frankly this appears to be the case.

You are one of the good ones that makes DU interesting, welcoming, inclusive, diverse, educational, and besides I'm now a cat owner (2 rescues). You help me laugh & understand my 2 new family members. I've always been a dog owner.

Once again, please stay & educate, and if that doesn't work - ignore.

157. Dear SalmonChantedEvening

We haven't interacted much but I am feeling hugely guilty. I owe you an apology. You seem to be one of those DUers who is always a positive force here. There aren't many of you but you really help balance the negativity and we need you.

My apology is most sincere. I may have talked that asshole into staying here a few months ago. They were posting some very hostile replies in a GD thread and getting locked posts sent to MIRT. I contacted them with a message suggesting to calm down and maybe take a break. We PMed back and forth a bit and they seemed to have learned to behave, or took a break. I do this for long time members that seem to be heading for trouble because I don't like to see them get banned for an occasional bad day. It wasn't any official notice, just me trying to keep the community together. Oh man, was I wrong on that one.

Going after someone such as yourself and the Lounge INSTITUTION of your Sunday LOL Cats is unforgivable. That has got to be one of the rudest and most disgusting displays of selfish, egotistical behavior I have ever seen here. That is like the stereotypical ugly american tourist barging into a local weekly ceremony, demanding everybody speak English and pissing on the floor. OMG.

If there was anybody who deserves a 500 reply pile-on in meta for obnoxious behavior it is that poster.

I am so sorry they have made you feel you need to leave. I hope you will change your mind. You should not be the one leaving. AT ALL. And I am so VERY, VERY sorry for my part in encouraging that asshole to stay here. Please reconsider.

Kali

168. When I'm feeling down I go to the lounge and read. Your Sunday LOL cats always lift my spirits.

I saw up thread where someone was a rude ass. I am truly sorry you had to experience that. I mean that, my heart really is sorry for you. But, please don't punish the rest of us for the rudeness of one person.

What I'm saying is, if that is the reason you're cutting us all adrift, is it right? Some people are rude. Some people can't help but try and spoil the enjoyment of others. If we give into those people, what kind of a world is left for the rest of us?

You've got my support. For whatever that's worth.

Maybe reconsider?

it doesn't make sense that you would leave DU. Someone said something you didn't like and virtually all of DU came down on that person like a ton of bricks.

A jury locked her response to you.

Another DUer called her a "bitch", directly to her, and no one alerted on it (until I did just now).

How much more support do you expect from DU than that?

All I can say is, I will regret, very much, not being able to thank you on one of your lol cat threads for all the smiles and laughs, and, as your leaving will prevent this from ever happening, and cause me to not be able to erase said regret - I shall have to kill you if you leave DU.

toward the end of last Sunday's thread: "I'm already up for another session/batch."

OMG, so are WE! You know, much of the stuff posted at DU is depressing and frustrating because of the times we live in. Heck, I've posted my fair share of it. If it ain't global warming, it's a Sandy, if it ain't people standing in line for hours to vote, it's Repubs trying to depress the vote, if it ain't our President being excoriated, it's billionaires trying to undercut him, if it ain't someone's son facing cancer surgery, it's the sad passing of someone's loved one, often an animal!

Point being, your Sunday morning dial-ups give us something else to consider that touches our humanity and our souls....the wonderful creatures in our crazy world. They are loved, and so are you. Please don't stay away. You are already missed.

304. Yes, but -

I agree - to take part in any Internet forums, you need a thick skin - as others have pointed out - "haters gonna hate".

But I still don't get it - what compels people to try and piss on others' pleasure?

You can see by my post numbers that I don't contribute a lot - I try to when I feel I have something positive to contribute, or some special knowledge or expertise. But I have learned, it doesn't matter what you say, there's going to be a "that sucks" response. No real opinion offered, no legitimate criticism, just the need to make the point that all these people that enjoy something, anything, that they're all wrong.

Opinion: "Hostess is going under - try Tastykakes for your junk food fix, they're really good"
Response: "Tastykakes suck"

Opinion: "I am now boycotting Chick-Fil-A/ Papa John's, but it's not always easy; I really like their chicken/ pizza."
Response: "Chick-Fil-A/ Papa John's sucks."

Opinion: "Pete Townshend made a stupid, ill-informed political statement, but I still love the Who"
Response: "The Who suck" (followed by a comparison with Ted Nugent - come on, comparing a legend like Townshend with an asterisk like Nugent, no matter how stupid a comment he makes?)

Opinion: "Clint Eastwood made a fool of himself at the GOP Convention, but it doesn't change the fact that he's a gifted director."
Response: "Clint Eastwood sucks."

And so on and so on -

Maybe I think that the Kitty cartoons are stupid - I don't, but if I did, I'm not going to step in and say - "this stuff is crap" - folks are enjoying it, why should I want to interfere with their pleasure? But there are folks here who will want to simply let you know that you're wrong - not that they believe you're wrong for this reason or that reason, but just because, well, whatever it is just sucks.

So, yeah, we need thick skins, but I also wish we would think about just how little we contribute by a "that sucks" opinion, if we have nothing else to offer. What's the point?

I swear some people get a thrill out of ruining other's peace of mind--and we cannot enable them to keep doing this. Giving these people a strong reaction FEEDS them. This is what has helped me deal with truly rude people--if at all possible I try to just carry on with my life as if they are not all that important. And many times they have moved their attentions elsewhere. Well....this works most of the time.

Although I've never posted on one of your marvelous threads, and never thanked you for them, I regret that. You and LOL cats got me through some dark times SCE, and you can see that others here feel the same.

It's horrible that ONE poster (who, by the way, has 21 people ignoring her and 6 posts hidden since 9/30, which tells you something about her, huh?) will spoil it for you and those to whom you bring great joy. EDIT: Now has 70 ignoring. Is that a record?

Please reconsider or at least keep your break short.

If nothing else, your username always brought a smile to my face. I'll be happy to send you a bacon and sausage pizza (is that Canadian Bacon?) but it won't be a Tombstone brand. It won't be Papa John's, either

We'll miss you, but if you decide to come back it will be a joyful homecoming!

I don't know if I responded more than once to your wonderful contributions but the thought of not having you here to share your therapeutic activity with so many of us who embrace you and your sharing of a joyful thing is making me very sad. It has been very therapeutic for me to have something to smile about all day and I thank you forever for that. And you have always been very polite in your responses to those who did comment...

As so many others have said here, we love you and don't want to see you go, you mean a great deal to so many here. I don't do FB and all that other stuff so this is where I come for the joyful posts you bless us with.

Take a break if you need to but please reconsider. We greatly outnumber the detractor, and they can be ignored. It would be so sad to see that one disgruntled person could take away such a joyful event from all of us... including you, dear SalmonChantedEvening.

Be well.

259. Let me add my plea to the others

You will be sorely missed. I look for your Sunday LOLcats before anything else.

I read the disruptive post and thought it was quite inappropriate to insult you in that manner (or in ANY manner). Someone up-thread said something about not letting the bullies win. Stay and defy the bully!!

I was a DU reader years before I signed up and began to post. DU has always been a kind of refuge to me -- so few people I know IRL are willing to discuss politics or current events. It has been a cause for concern to see this site being slowly taken over by net nannies, nit pickers, hyper-sensitives whose purpose seems to be to destroy the pleasure of others, either because of some inner demon or because they are paid by political opponents to damage the site.

Please reconsider -- take a break and then come back to us. We'll be waiting.

I'm new here at DU and the highlight of my week is to read the LOLZ Cats! Please don't leave. Joy shall cease, life will be dull, I'll probably turn to booze or anti-depressants to get through the upcoming week.

You have no idea how many people I plant in front of my iPad to see your Sunday thread throughout the week. It brings a smile to EVERYONE.

Don't do this to me!!!

I've enjoyed your LOLCat Digests and looked forward to them.

The person who was so rude to you is almost 100% that rude every time they post; it's like they're trying to outdo their over-the-top lunacy with each keystroke. I can understand why some would prefer to just walk away from it.

To everyone else: Please just put that person on ignore and she can have fun screaming into the wind.

I'm worried about the place. I truly am. When good, creative, generous folks like you get run off by those who live to attack and wave their banners in the perversion of some deranged simulacrum of justice, well, I don't know how long any of us can remain.

If you truly are gone, know that I will miss you badly.

273. This makes me so sad I am crying

I remember when we used to write parodies of songs way back when, and how you and others tried to keep the traditions alive here. The weekly TOONS, the LOLCats, the photoshop contests, the calendars, the art history Fridays. These are the things that make DU not suck.

How dare anyone criticize one of the many people who have voluntarily posted such threads, because this attack on SalmonEnchanted is an attack on all DUers who contribute their time, expertise, and passions with the rest of us.

It is more work than many of you know. Way back when Jeff posted our TOONS for us for years. Keph our news. Everyday for years. Until they both died. No one else successfully replaced them. I know. I tried to post TOONS in Jeff's memory and keep up the traditon. I didn't last long. Others have also done the work. Mostly until they totally burned out, sometimes because of the lack of even a slight bit of encouragement by other DUers who post nothing but snarkbait as one person responding to this thread always does. The tattletales and word police who look for any opportunity to pwn someone which means to "humiliate or defeat" in internet lingo. It's a game. The trash talking dozens as if such displays of nastiness somehow gain you brownie points somewhere.

What the hell. I am disgusted. Salmon, I remember when you first signed on here. You have always been a kind person and a gentle soul. You have come to my defense many times in a thread as well as encouraging me about my art. I will miss you fiercely as I miss so many of the other DUers like you who have gone into lurk mode or have left altogether.

By the way, I always thought you were a woman.

Oh please don't leave. Yes, I'm begging. I hate to think of myself as so selfish that I'd beg someone not to do something they need to do so I'll stop begging out loud, but I'll be keeping my hopes up anyway (and I'll keep trying to start my Sundays off with a Sunday LOLcats dial-up warning).

Several people have mentioned you're on Facebook. Do you have a page I can Like or something?

Thanking you a zillion for all the joy you've brought and I'll be holding thoughts of love and light for you as you leave us--leave us here broken and crying and unable to drink our Sunday morning coffee--oh sorry, my not so latent selfishness rearing its ugly head again

Hugs and Purrs and Salmons and Awwws.

289. I had decided not to post anymore, because it seems the hoffers have taken over DU.

They attack but answer no questions. They're Liberty U. Luntzians who pounce on trigger words and ignore context. I decided to become a lurker and end my subscription after many years of being a paying member.

Well, I did cancel my subscription, but when I saw your post, I had to join the chorus of people in saying how much I've enjoyed your kittehs. They're such a hoot. I'll miss them. I'll probably miss DU, too, now that it's hoffer hell.

I'm just a cheerleader for some threads. I post to kick them. I don't have time to offer much more. But you, Salmon, you're an artist and a high-profile personality here. You're stronger than the huffy hoffers. You have nine lives. Okay, so you've just killed one of them with your post here, but you still have eight more!

Don't let them kick kitteh litter in your face (I almost said another word for face that's also associated with cats but we know what the non-contexters would make of that).

Sorry this consistently nasty POS invaded your kitty thread last week to spew venom.

I've never encountered one of your threads before, but judging by the response here and in the "offending" thread, you are woefully under-estimating your impact on the community at large. Seems to me the opinions of thousands of posters over the years are a lot more important than those of one whinger.

Go drink a beer or something and snap out of it. You're letting one person, ONE PERSON, get to you and ignoring the masses who appreciate your threads.

I'd like to add my 2 cents to those who say they wish you'd reconsider -- I wish you would too.

The poster who started this is just not worth it.

I don't post as much as some here, and lately, this place is feeling less welcoming. There's a problem here, and I hope it gets straightened out before it kills this site.

but we do. It matters. A lot. Your Sunday thread has been the beginning, or occasional late night ending of the day before for me, on more Sundays than I can count. And I'm sure that I'm not the only one that you have cheered up when things were rough.

I don't know why the poster was so awful to you. I have to imagine that things must be going pretty badly for them to attack you like that, but it is no excuse. It was uncalled for.

Please consider using the ignore button and staying.

Fool me again, can't get fooled again.

Or, something like that.

OTOH, I suggest fighting back.

Thanks for all the cat shows. I enjoyed them.

I'd prefer you to stick around and join the fight, but, it's not for me to say.
