Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Feb 2, 2013, 09:50 PM

Teaparty Community page is already down. Wah?

I thought it would be just like Facebook
https://www.teapartycommunity.com/

When someone showed me the site page earlier today when it was up and running I was surprised at how many relatively young people's "faces" were on it

2. I was sure it would go off without a hitch, too.

After all, it looked exactly like Facebook.

3. Anyone can purchase thousands of young people's faces from a slew of stock photo websites. . .

No guarantee there'll be a body to befriend on the other end of the link.

6. Romney Bought How Many Twitter Followers?

Allegedly his campaign bought somewhere between 115k and 150k followers.

So I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the teapartycommunityDOTcom site buys or fakes users to make it look like it's successful.

7. They came out with a slick magazine a couple of years ago in the supermarkets. One look and...



That's how they go mainstream. Tons of Koch money and willing lackeys.

8. Maybe it's down b/c of all the people signing up?

After all, think about the millions of Cheeto-munching basement trolls who have been pining all this time for someone to blatantly rip off facebook's design and intellectual property, and make a True American alternative.

Also, they've very clearly stolen Facebook's Terms of Service and simply find/replaced their own name into the text.

9. I can see 50 million people from fb flocking to "Bagger Chat".

Someone needs to tell them to plug in the server our turn it on...actually, no they don't.

14. I have a junk mail persona specifically for this kind of thing.

As well as getting logins from oddball websites that may be spaminators.

I may be insane but I'm not crazy.

13. The creator said it would group people by location and then country wide as a (tea) party

Do you actually see by say zipcode or something if there are others in your real community( not real addresses or anything of course , but link you by zip or something to others)?
Just wondering
In a way I would like to know ,... maybe not!
Not to say someone couldn't beef up an area also I know

17. They had to turn over their Ted Nugent LP ...

Also needed to go to the 7-11 and stock up on Cheetoh's for the rest of the week's programming. They're expecting a big 'new user' influx LMAO ...

19. Anybody got an update as to what's going on over there?

I joined with fake name etc. and was having a blast. Not being obvious, just a little contrary and then -- boom... Haven't been able to get on since a week ago when it cut off right in the middle of me reading some of their crap.

I just wanna know if it's me or have others been able to sign in?

Anyone?

Thanks!
