How to improve TDPF

Postby Meade » Fri Mar 02, 2012 12:12 pm

In light of the Brenda Konkel kerfuffle over real names vs. pseudonyms and how the forons are a bunch of sociopaths swimming in a cesspool of personal attacks and other bad behavior, I have a proposal for improving the Forum and lifting it out of its downward spiral:

There it is, folks-
evidence that the right wants to grant those with more money greater access to channels of speech.

Why do you hate free speech, Larry?

Meade has that worked at your mommy's blog? Talk about stupid and insipid posters...

Here's an idea Meade, go fuck yourself. I just want to keep up with this persona you have of us cause we never see any garbage comments on Madison.com or Redstate, or Althouse. They are such models of civility.

When you can actually contribute without just trying to flame things, then maybe I'll contribute a dollar for your campaign to get a life.

Only if that dollar goes to Planned Parenthood.

Deal?

Oh, I think this forum is beyond redemption. Shut it down.

...lack of empathy or remorse, false emotions, selfishness, grandiosity or deceptiveness...

And he accuses forons of sociopathy.

Incidentally, Brenda's site is rife with anonymity. It's positively lousy with stupid usernames and cartoony profile images, hardly the ideal of transparency that she claims it is.

This is a personal crusade against madison.com's comments, which is where she was offended. She has not been similarly abused on this board, that I know of. I'm awaiting a link. In fact, I've begged for one.

'scuse me? When and where?

There's over 1100 post with my name in them, I don't have time to sort through them all, but you might want to start with things written by Floyd and Daisy and all their sockpuppets.

Yet you keep coming back. What does that tell you about yourself?

You have said that you've been offensively insulted on these forums many times, in the way you insulted me on your own blog yesterday. Profanely and personally. If that's true, I'd think it would really stick in your brain and finding just one would be easy.

I mean, you and Meade insist we're swimming in a cesspool of offensive personal attacks (like the one you published on your blog about me in some sort of attempt to demonstrate how much more dignified and civilized your own site is from this one).

Just one.

And since Floyd was banned, I'm not sure that really fits with your whole narrative that these people are simply allowed to do as they wish with impunity. I'm not sure Daisy has posted here in five years.

I've been posting here for a little under 6 years and don't remember that user. Brenda, if you're digging stuff up from six years ago then you really do have some thin skin and hold one hell of an online grudge.

Did Brenda insist we're swimming in a cesspool of personal attacks? I don't think so.

Daisy was Mike Schimdt, Madison's least funny stand up comedian. How that guy gets paid to tell jokes is beyond me.

Why does anyone even reply back to Althouse's little pet? If the guy ever said anything remotely interesting I'd understand but come on people.

Posts have to be reviewed and approved by a moderator here? Konkel is going overboard a bit but man, this forum does kinda stink.
