Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Feb 8, 2013, 02:38 PM

 

Here's what a typical conversation on DU is like:

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

"The house is on fire! The house is on fire! Run!"

"Where did you hear that?"

"Tommy told me, now let's get out!"

"Tommy? He's a liar and he stole my leather jacket!"

"Now really isn't the time for - "

"Look, you can run outside if you want, but I'm staying here."

"But the house is ON FIRE!!!! I can feel the heat at the door!!!"

"No, that's just your imagination. There is no fire! Tommy said so only because he stole my jacket!"

"But there is, just look out the window!"

"Why are you so intent on worshiping Tommy????"

"I'm not worshiping I'm --- just take my word for it OK?"

"Nope, you're a TOMMY WORSHIPER! Your word is as good as his!"

And so on and so on....

7. Yep, and an entire subthread dedicated to how evil it is to have a leather jacket

 

And that if one has a leather jacket, they are in no place to make judgements

It's like herding cats. We scratch and hiss and run every which way. At least we're not sheep.
