Good call. This may be much bigger than we think.


Nice of you to just make things up.

Hey when in Rome...

I have no idea what your post means, Meade.

Other than to note you haven't answered my questions.

Please try again.

Here, let me help you out, Stu.

translated Meade wrote:I'm a troll. I come to the Daily Page for one reason and one reason only: to make people angry. If you're looking for a rational debate, you're better off arguing with a fire hydrant than asking me questions.

When you ask me questions, I stop and think, "what can I say that will make this person angry?" My responses are rarely related to your questions. Only a small portion of the idiocy that I post reflects what I actually believe. If I said the stupid shit in my sleep that I say when I'm awake, my wife would have killed me long ago.

Do not ask me questions. Do not respond to my questions. Asking me questions will simply encourage me to respond, and the response will rarely, if ever, have anything to do with your question.

Sincerely,
Translated Meade

Got it, thanks.

But here's another thought -- maybe he's just not that bright. You know, he's really trying, but this is the best he can do.

How much did the GOP pay that son (daughter) of a bitch??????
Let's get this nailed down!!!!!


Hey, bLASKAdog, the Albion clerk wasn't "in on it." It was a surprise that all of the affected forms came to Albion, and the Albion clerk expressed concern that when it was forwarded to the clerks' offices to which it should have gone in the first place that some voters would be disenfranchised because their forms were still in the mail because they had to be forwarded.

Now crawl back up on the couch with Larry and Mommy and get scratched behind the ears while you lick what passes for your balls.

It doesn't matter how bright he is. He's applying whatever smarts he has to getting negative attention and pissing people off, not to having a discussion. In person, he'd be a sociopath of some sort and people would avoid him. On screen, he's an annoyance and has greatly diminished any attraction the forum might have to thoughtful readers and posters, who come in and see little but stupid back-and-forth.

If you think he's dumb, that's accidental. If you think he isn't dumb, it's on purpose. Me, I don't care which.

It's the Dave a Larry show around here lately, and its boring as fuck to watch.


Very very true. I check my email three or four times a day, and I used to check the forum three or four times. Not any more. You?

There's usually one Meade/Dave free thread going over the course of the day that I pay attention to. Once they've latched on to a thread, however, I tend to lose interest. I have to admit Dave and Larry do a good job of personalizing their attacks just enough to draw out someone into the line of fire. I fall into the trap occasionally if my fuse is shorter than normal. As far as content, they add none. I try to start a thread, any thread, once a week-- my forum presence is pretty lackluster lately though. I really need to post a little more content.

It is my humble opinion that Dave does not have the writing skills to consistently use a style other than his own.

I guess they overlooked that detail. Nobody is accusing them of being evil geniuses. Just evil.

While I like picking on both of them, I sort of like BDog Dave. He has a ribald sense of humor and he is relatively honest when making the conservative case here on the Daily Page Forum. On the other hand, I find Meade to be just a 24/7 annoying weaselly ass.

Though I mean "annoying" in a good way. Stu Levitan is also really annoying in a good way. As in "what a oblivious self-regarding dick he is! I hope he posts another train wreak of a comment so I can be outraged and entertained!"
