Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Feb 2, 2013, 07:09 AM

 

I can't answer certain posts.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by aikoaiko (a host of the General Discussion forum).

In an effort to "sillify" certain pro gun efforts I suggested that open carriers be shot because they presented a clear and present danger.

This was very tongue in cheek and of course I do not advocate killing anyone. I' a pacifist and abhor violence. The original thread has over 200 posts mostly by those who might fall into a pro gun advocacy tableaux.

I stand by the silliness expounded in my thread and continue to hope and pray for responsible gun ownership in America.

2. You must of been locked out of the thread if a jury voted to hide your post.

And you may get locked here since it probably belongs in Meta. Thanks for the clarification and I hope that other DUers see this thread and realize what occurred. I can only speak for myself, but I'll allow you a mulligan and a facepalm.

We are on a heightened sense of alert and sensitivity due to gun violence so the occasional slip-up happens. Try to be mindful of it in the future.

4. Just shows how pro-gun crowd can't read things, yet they are prepared to pull a gun in a split

second and shoot someone. They might get that wrong too.

5. Relax-- there's a tightass epidemic around here, and...

you got nailed by some of its sufferers. It's really bad, and I'm seeing them searching for things to complain about. Satire is the first to go in these epidemics.

This month it's guns. Next month we may be back to cornflakes and chicken, if we're lucky. My advice is to avoid the discussion entirely until you're up to the fight. No good will come from it.

6. more shit stirring.

maybe you could learn just a little something from your exceedingly lame attempt at satire- perhaps the lamest I've EVER seen. You are so lousy at it, you need to use the little satire smilie thingie.

8. Considering how many times people have been toild they have no right to

defend their homes or their families therein and must operate under the assumption a criminal means them no harm until after their under physical assault maybe their patience for nonsense reached a breaking point. And since you suggested they be killed -- presumably with guns -- for carrying a gun openly where such a practice was recognized as lawful the magnitude of the absurdity invited that reaction.

I understand what your intent was but the execution was recognizably self-defeating.

9. This will be locked as meta; but in the meantime

...clearly I misjudged your post. I thought it was pretty crap satire at best, but clearly it did satire's job quite well.

10. It's OK. I can't post certain answers!

 

If the people who read those types of posts can't figure out satire, sarcasm, or just plain smart assed-ness, then they'll have a tough time keeping up.

Although in all fairness, the typed word is very easy to misconstrue.

Peace out!
