My apologies to du

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

For whatever, but from now on all you get are simple, easy to digest stories. In my view this place, like most Americans, can't handle complex anything.

My interests are diverging quickly from what matters to DU'ers... They did a long time ago...but my mind is not all at all consumed by partisan distractions. Rather I am interested by the high level corruption affecting the country, party independent. As well as the kinds of games that lead to geography lessons in this country.

I notice that yes, indeed, our interests diverged a while ago. I m not into team sports.

And silly season just makes this place ten times as insuferable at times.

So yes, OWS is part of my interests, as well as voter supression, and violation of the voters rights act. I see it for what it is, power structure against the people. In some places that's dems, in others it's republicans.

It really does not matter, end of empire and changing population densities are predictable. Such is life.

So, from now on, dog bytes man...that is the level of complexity...or Romney does gaff (entertaining). Or some cheer leading. This place used to be very different...with growth it's become like everywhere else...it is...predictable. So while you watch the Super Bowl, remember politics is just one more team sport...



Now dog bytes man, update at 11.

people love to pile on people when you don't go with the flow. You are called provocative because you express an opinion someone may not agree with you. I never knew I stirred so much dislike because I express my own feelings. So I sure don't like it when I see others do it with people we may not agree with at times.

61. No, I never saw it, and I'm thrilled to know I won't go into a depression at the end of Downton

Abbey as I will have it to look forward to lol! My mom was always talking about it so I have an idea about the characters, she absolutely loved it too.

I think it might be available free on CBS, not sure. But if not, I know I can get it on Amazon. I might sign up for the year deal where you pay a certain amount and can watch as many videos as you like. Have to check that out more.

Or you can rent each episode online on Amazon, which would probably add up to a lot more. Or I think you can just buy the whole series, I know you can for Downton Abbey, for like, $10.00 or so.

longer and went into the characters more. Even some hanky panky with the downstair maid and the son of the Upstairs family. You could buy it through PBS but it is expensive.

Have you ever seen the series on masterpiece called I Claudius? Boy that is another really good program. I think it came out after Upstairs, Downstairs. What a while time period. You really should watch it.

59. You know, you're on the right track here. Yes, you got something wrong,

hugely wrong, you screwed the pooch and it came back to byte you. That's not a huge deal, we all do it, and it doesn't require apology (just acknowledgement).

But I can not understand why you are so intent on making this about DU and DUers, characterizing the site and its users as shallow idiots who can't handle real news. Think on that for a while, and perhaps you'll realize why you have so many 'fans' and become a better communicator in the process.

Now, reverting to this byting dog: is it a robot dog of some sort? A cAInine? Perhaps a wire-hair?

And as to serious that includes what I filed on Friday...nothing to do with occupy, or even foreign affairs...it is important, but not for DU. Also is is very local, even if the overall theme coud be of national importance.

Braodbrush to dump us all in the lesser being bin because they hold other views and priorities. Not everyone is interested in what the op finds interesting. They aren't lesser beings because of it. God i must be old because i don't need everyone to applaud me. Just tolerate me and let me know when I'm factually wrong. My opinions and deuling points are my own and they will be defended because they are mine. Don't require me to be you. I'm different from my life experiences and that alone is good enough for me. If it isn't for others that's their problem.

I was very disappointed in that the title lead me to believe that there was a real apology from the author regarding some false information that was posted.
instead, it is a "woe is me" and "I am too smart for you" post.
so, yes, my post is necessary.
a real apology would have been met with a "well done".

48. Dear nb,

I always look forward to your posts. There's meat to them, and something to consider. I don't always stick my 2 in, but yours are among the few that I read ALL of. DU will be poorer for lack of your perceptions. Perhaps I can persuade you to merely take a break and rejoin the fray after "the silly season". I hope so.

62. Your massive sense of superiority, even in the face of being proven wrong, is hilarious.

You just can't come straight out and say that either you were flat-out fabricating your 'insider information' about that fraud Polk, or were completely and totally fooled, so you take it out on those Du'ers WHO WEREN'T.


The condescending attitude really makes up for what you lack in veracity.

83. I wish everyone could see the series of OP's you are obliquely referring to.

Since you won't ever admit that you were wrong, maybe by keeping this kicked they'll finally figure out that you sometimes just aren't posting anything remotely the truth and figure it out for themselves.

Would you bottom line it for me? What specifically are you apologizing for?

81. Fortunately not

Seems he wasn't even a soldier though. He was kicked out of boot camp after a week I am gathering.

I still found the Syria information interesting, and I wish I knew more about that. I don't want any of our soldiers dying over there.

From my humble stance here in the gutter, I try looking at you ascending to the stars... oh, but the glare is too bright, I fear... too bright...

78. If she's leaving

then it's only the 15th time she has done so.

But she keeps coming back, if only to try to enlighten the filthy, uneducated masses of Americans/DU'ers.

76. I can't believe

you didn't throw in a few licks about how dumb Americans are (like you usually do) when you go on one of your quarterly "let me list the ways I am tremendously more in-touch, intelligent, in the know of more secret material than you'll ever hear of, and possibly more beautiful than any Du'ers, then get upset when everyone doesn't fall at my feet and praise my wisdom and beg me not to leave this place that is filled with dim-witted Americans and their pedestrian interests" posts.


On edit--how wrong I was...here it is, the obligatory dig at America/Americans right in the first line: "In my view this place, like most Americans, can't handle complex anything"

So then why are you here? Why do you continue to torture yourself and participate in a forum full of dumb americans? I'm sure there is somewhere else out there that is full of Nadin-equivalents, who can handle your hard-hitting investigative journalism and never talk about anything that you deem inappropriate.

But yet you're here....why is that? You keep reminding us, year after year, how dumb we (Americans, DU'ers, etc) are. How feeble our brains are, how infantile our interests are, how 2-seconds long our attention spans are. Why? We haven't changed. We're still just as dumb, as feeble, as infantile, as distracted as we always were.

Sorry we're not more, uh, perfect, like you

88. This appears to primarily be a critique of DUers, and of DU in general.

As such it really belongs in Help & Meta. We cannot move it there for you but do feel free to repost it there yourself. As always if you have any questions or if you wish to appeal this decision feel free to contact me.
