About Me

It was a dark, and stormy night. The ship was sinking. The Captain said, \"tell me a story\". So I did.

To paraphrase the Immortal Dr. Seuss:

"Start a new meta thread. Treat it unkind.
Feed it stale outrage, flamebait and wine
Start a week's worth! A month!
All the old, worn out flack
Then perhaps old missed meta,
and its friends
will come back!"

The difference being, before meta when ...er, certain people engaged in meta-like behavior in GD

(this thread being an excellent example in action, speaking of meta meta-ing) there wasn't a name for it and it wasn't easily identified.

Admin, in what I have to imagine was either a beautiful accident or an absolutely brilliant piece of 13 dimensional chess, collected all the meta-type crap in one place, allowed it to ferment and fester for a while, and then swiftly and cleanly (to paraphrase will pitt) "cinched that bag off and tossed it out to sea".

So now when the exact same games are attempted in GD- you know, let's wham-wham-wham complain about the members of DU on DU to DU on the topic of DU .... there's precedence for everyone else to go "cough. meta. been there, done that, please give it a rest already".

Clearly, though, some people still dearly miss that place. -sniff!-

I don't take suggestions on what to do or what not to do from random gherkins on the intertubes.

I don't know, I guess there are billions of people on this planet sitting around like lumps of unformed clay, going "but what should I doooooooooooo?"

And then there are all the people who are so perfectly fucking put together that they KNOW they are exquisitely placed to offer guidance and advice to everyone else on how to micro-manage every damn detail of their affairs.

Shit, folks, Peter Gabriel said it best. DIY.

As a general rule, I don't take advice from anyone whose motto is "I Feel Like Shit and Want To Die"

"M" is for that most a-special feeeeeling

"E" is for Eternal navel gaze
"T" is for the Total useless-os-it-ty
and "A" is for A very empty place!

Put it all together, stir it in a thread... take it out to dinner and then put that crap to bed!

meta! meta! We're so honestly ecstatic they got rid of it!
meta! meta! Except now, where am I supposed to dump all this shit?

What always cracks me up... is the almost mathematical predictability of how any and every horrible

thing in the world- no matter what it is- can, in fact inevitably will be linked back to, you know, "those people and attitudes on DU" in a series of incredibly predictable 2 or 3 posts.

Oh, yes, "Child Soldiers Conscripted to Mine Diamonds in the Congo"? Well, tsk, tsk, we see those same attitudes regularly on display from some here on DU yes we do

(really? people on DU support child soldiers being forced to mine diamonds? Oh, okay. Please, proceed)

Yes, yes, it's a shame that our supposedly progressive men refuse to see how their attitudes are complicit with the same sort of subjugation oppression mindset that laughs heedlessly at a dongle joke, which also sends children as young as 4 into diamond mines yes yes

indeed. it's disgusting tsk tsk quack.

At first, I was like
