As Rachel used to say....someone talk me down.

Some of these newbies are driving me nuts. I know, I know, just ignore them. But I have been here since 2002, I used to be a moderator, and I am so sad at what has happened to this place. No, not sad I'm PISSED.

3. It's a farcical shadow of what it used to be -- kind of the like the scene in "Jumanji," when the

 

...invading chimps take over the house.

No offense to actual chimps, of course.

2. Most the newbies aren't newbies

They are flagged for reviewbies.

9. Several

 

Low post "newbies" have accounts that are 10 years or more old and only like 10 or 11 and sometimes less posts.. they have to be throwaway accounts someone set up in order to try to get away with trolling..

20. It's weird cuz us Berners don't act like Bernie

Well some do. But, I am a whole lot ruder and more confrontational. Others are really really nice. I don't think Bernie has any say on what we do. OTOH I think Hillary influences people who support her a lot more. Oh I guess that is what they mistake for enthusiasm the willingness to be a blind follower.

I am amazed really, the only real sense in how they act is that we must have a lot more 1%'s than I would have thought..

Maybe I will dig up the study, but I'm not really feeling it right now. I am busy watching them lose their shit over #PopeGate

6. Yes, I see it too. Quite disheartening to see how far it has fallen.

There are a few pockets on sane, civil discussion but they're nearly obscured by all the trash littering the path.

7. ignoring a group works great

I just learned how, and it's a life saver.

Clear the path!

11. I have a huge ignore list, which I never did until about 3 months ago.

I don't go to any groups but this one and Sports, and I absolutely refuse to ignore GD-P. I learn a lot there after I filter through the crap anyway.

8. I just keep adding to my ignore list, while reminding myself that it's a sign

of how desperate Camp Weathervane is becoming.

I have been telling some of them what I think. I try to couch my thoughts in appropriate language, it's not always possible though.

18. I totally agree with you

I've been here since 2004 and the change in tone really gets me angry. Almost to the point at which I don't know if I can stay through the election.
