Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

A quick intro

New POSTING here but a long time lurker. I have done, as of today 35,607 posts over at the Mike Malloy message board.

Prior to that I was at alt.tasteless.jokes which was a running hysterical flame war. I had almost 70,000 posts there pre-dating the Bush Years. I'm still mentioned in the ATJ FAQ a decade after I left so I guess I made an impression.

I have a take no prisoners approach to the Right Wing and rake them over the coals not only online but the ones I know face to face. They have learned to avoid starting anything with me because they LOSE. I got one to apologize for supporting Iraq and he offered to take me out to dinner. I told him to give the money to the DAV.

I'm also the one that extracted the clips from the Mike Malloy Show back in the days when it was on I.E. America Radio and they can be found today at Ben Burch's site http://whiterosesociety.org . Go to the Malloy page and scroll to the bottom. Those clips helped him get the gig on Air America. Some have become internet favs. (Rumsfeld On Acid), (Smeagol announces his candidacy) etc.

I've been online buds with a few folks you may have heard of, some not but who's work you know. I've remained as anonymous as possible through all of this because I know for a FACT the internet is a hostile place.

After all, I'm here.

1. Welcome to DU, Spitfire!

You sound very interesting. I think you'll make an excellent addition to our membership.

I tend to be a bit more casual about internet anonymity...

I don't usually post at this hour, but tonight, thanks to my insomnia, I'm here too.

3. Over at the Malloy board we had a DLC Dem

He was one of those "fight fire with water" types.

Meanwhile, there was another guy like me who I described as the type I would trust to know what to do if a Civil War broke out. You could toss hand grenades with the pins pulled and he would know what to do with them.

The milktoast Dem said, "Are you kidding? He's the type that would throw them into our own command tent!"

My reply:

"If you're in there,....so?"

5. Glad to have you here.

Your "Neil Munro Interupts Famous Speeches" thread was a classic.

Hope you stick around and post 35,000 posts on DU.

9. I thought the point you made in the thread about using humor...

instead of anger was right on point. Now when I hear his name I will start to laugh, both at him and because I will remember the responses in the thread. Overall, a much more powerful message against what he did than simply venting in anger.

10. The Press Corps is mad at him too

Because of him, Obama walked away and didn't take ANY questions.

It was a case of "If one of you misbehaves you are ALL guilty."

You can bet they all looked at him afterwards with daggers coming out of their eyes.

13. In my case it was about 10

But it wasn't a matter of "courage". I was just too damn busy doing other things.

I thought of this place as a source for what's going on in the Liberal Community and for links to articles.

Another resource I used was alt.impeach.bush on usenet along with all the other usual ones like common dreams, buzzflash, crooks and liars, take back the media, etc. I have tons of links like that. I only actually posted at the Mike Malloy message boards.
