and probably nearly 2,000 times from here. I'm surprised that Admin hasn't caught on yet that it's her.

I think that just say yes lasted two weeks, so they did let that one play out. Given her history, this one will get a time out and then she'll start additional socks. She certainly is revealing her assorted bigotries over there.

for about 30 minutes...you won't believe your eyes. I was lurking their earlier and was SO TEMPTED to sign up...just so I could yell at a Obama hater. Then I remembered it was not worth it and signed in to DU.

kinda like a way for the admins to get extra clicks from wingnuts. It was supposedly a site for "civil discourse", except many of the Democrats who seek online messaging forums either go here, MediaMatters, or CrooksandLiars and prefer not to be bothered talking with RWers. That place has basically morphed into yet another spot where it is mostly RWers and other disgruntled wingnuts.

She also later posted as GingerSnaps, LostMessages and a few others. Then went away for a while before returning as LG. She now claims to have a Chromebook and can post from most anywhere since Chicago has so much wi fi.

And, admin reinstated her over there.

I just assumed that DU was dying like the original DU so I went over there. And yea the racists are all over it! What was the point again? Someone sent me an email so I went there.

It was only after someone published at Disconsionist that they were posting over here that I came back and you guys were still here!!!

I am so happy. I found it hard to believe some of the things that were allowed to be said on that other board. Really makes me feel ill, a lot of it.

33. Actually, I'm having a wonderful time there… I've even found a secret admirer.

Frank the Caver of all people. He was always sweet enough to look me up and say HI in one of my threads. I never realized how much of a romantic he is.

But unfortunately, his well known penchant for not being able to play well with others has caught up with him and now his posting privileges have been temporarily suspended. It must really pain him to be unable to stop by and tell me that he's thinking about me and invite me to read some of his latest fan fiction that he writes about me.

But he can't quit me, thats for sure.

I just hope that Frank doesn't get too jealous whenever I'm conversing with other posters without him.

There's nothing worse than a jealous caver. They can get quite testy at times.

104. Who knew that Discussioning could be so much fun?

And it's given me a much better appreciation of our winger friends.

People who have a really bad habit of writing before they think renders hours and hours of family fun-sized entertainment.

I am surprised, however, that cavers like my one man fan club, Frank, can't handle being out in mixed company like that. After all, they're free to express themselves in any way they see fit, just as long as they don't violate the TOS.

But, I guess that that's asking too much of them. A spanking now and then is needed, I suppose.

Now, only if they'll behave.

and the misogyny was more appalling than the right wing stuff is from the freepers. I hadn't made the connection with galileoreloaded, but I see it now. I think attitudes like that are more likely to sink the forum than the RW stuff.

is a disgrace when corporate earnings are higher than ever, so he may well be left wing. But his chest-beating "I am an alpha male, all feminists are out to destroy men's lives, and all real men should try to dominate women" crap is unreadable.

85. He is something else

He is unrestrained at Discussionist though. He held back a bit here. There he lets it all out. Of course it was obvious he was an unabashed misogynist while he was here. A DU jury let stand a post in which he said 95 percent of women under 35 were "disgusting," and that didn't earn him a PPR. It was several months after that when he finally got his pizza.

A short summary of the discussion:

Marriage, it's between a Man and a Woman

But why?

Because Marriage, it's between a Man and a Woman.

I asked why.

Um. Hamsters?


It's far worse than "Brawndo's got what plants crave. It's got electrolytes."

57. I've been on mixed forums before and it never really works out

because of the essential difference between Republicans and Democrats.

Democrats hate Republican policies that fatten the rich and beggar the workers.

Republicans hate Democrats.

It is impossible to discuss things rationally with most of them, they are too heavily invested in spite and meanness. I have seen real life jobs threatened. I have seen personal information posted at hacker sites in the hope of attracting identity thieves. Even though none of this is a danger to me these days, I simply refuse to give them another target.

At its best, Discussionist might be a honey trap that keeps trolls off DU so MIRT won't have to work too hard. As a discussion forum, it's living down to my low expectations.

Welcome back. We'll disagree on many things but we won't need to be disagreeable about it. After all, we're mostly on the same side.

on Yahoo boards, I can say it is simply pointless. To them, facts simply don't matter, at all. It is impossible to ever have a reasonable discussion with people who cling to their own reality, even when the observable facts prove them wrong.
