Completely irrelevant to anything posted here, SLADusername has switched to a non-sequitur topic I was unaware of, and that is completely irrelevant to anything posted here. SLADusername doesn't just link to other posts about this nonsequitur (which are already on this site) but reproduces them in full, and adds more! More! More forced scrolling through bullshit. This is a great example of exactly the form of flooding and thread hijacking SlADusername engages in. I don't give a shit if it's against some narrow legalistic self-appointed judge's biased interpretation of the imaginary rules. It's "crimes against decorum, good taste and reasoned political analysis." At some point the club should decide what kind of clientele it wants to allow.

this is not your private club get over it Jack

I know you wish it to be true but it is not

after two weeks you seem to still not understand what Jeff said ...too bad you can not comprehend a simple statement, continuing your tantrums because you can not get your way

I won't pretend to be up to speed on all of the disagreements here, but maybe that's good. The issues are maybe irrelevant to my point, which is that you don't all need to be pals, but maybe you do need to give each other some space.

I don't want anybody banned or the board to be heavily moderated. In return, all I'd like is some basic, online courtesy. Like not flooding someone's thread, or driving discussion off topic, or making vicious personal attacks. That kind of stuff.

Jeff out.

Pity there isn't an RIer (or automated system) reposting those comments here (JW willing, of course). Seems like they would make a most valuable contribution to the board (especially for those of us who don't go near f*c*book).

Jack is breaking the rules Jeff just posted not me, Jeff says he does not want anyone banned and that made Jack mad he thought his plan was set and then ........ooopsy Jeff shows up

Jack has been trashing me for 10 years this is nothing new only that his temper tantrums are getting worse

At least console yourself that it hasn't (yet) returned to the level of January 2017... A period where username 'SLaD' treated this forum to no fewer than 83 posts in a single day (UTC) - and that with a 4 hr + 1.5 hr break!

The next day saw a mere 49, a couple of days later saw 59. 'Output' that exceeds my own all-time total post count in less than a week.

'And what was the cause of this?', I hear you ask. What vital piece of information, what crucial issue, what Earth-shattering Global event prompted such dedication to communication with people such as ourselves? .... 'Trump piss-tapes'.

Not much I can add, really. That just about says it all.

Good luck appealing to some sense of shame, some shred of humility. There is next to none. Witness last March, when you highlighted a particularly egregious lie.

The 2 month break from the torrent of crap that ensued was most welcome (I believe I thanked you at the time), but alas, was not to last.

What I'm getting round to is simply this: You have to either filter it out, or (like so many before you) move elsewhere.

Every time you read or engage with it, every second you waste doing so, you're surrendering time - a piece of your life - to them that you will never, ever get back.

I still come here because I enjoy reading a lot of what gets posted here - particularly by yourself, plus a fair few others. A lot (but still not most, thankfully) of what gets posted here is utter dross. (Again, thankfully) the worst of it is supplied by the same handful of usernames, which makes filtering it out all the easier. I have no interest in what they're selling and I literally have no time wade through it.

To paraphrase an old adage:

"If a shit C&P post is made on a forum, but nobody ever reads it, is it still a post?"

Wow.

SLaD, maybe it's time you considered approaching the authorities and taking out a precautionary restraining order on this freak. It's only a matter of time before he starts hanging around outside your house equipped with a camera and a telephoto lens in the hopes of catching you coming in or out of the shower so he has some nudes to spread across those revenge porn sites.

You can never be too careful these days.

that was quite a show and a very determined individual, do you think he just got really upset at me when I caught him linking to that islamophobic? I think so


charts and everything ....he went all out :P

btw Jack did ask me to combine the Wikileaks thread ...yeah he did and he lied about it

SLAD, great work on the Wikileaks stuff - can you be persuaded to put it all in one thread for easy reference? (I know that's not your usual thing, please don't be annoyed.)

The boring truth about those Julian Assange smears


MICHAEL C. MOYNIHAN

According to prosecutors in Sweden, authorities in Stockholm will pursue a vague "molestation" charge against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

There is precious little evidence available in the public domain, though the few details circulating make me extremely sceptical of both the rape (which seems 100 per cent false) and molestation charges against Assange. More on that in a minute. But for the wild-eyed, spittle-flecked conspiracists bloggers - and Assange himself - the charges reeked of a U.S. government plot.


Automatic forfeit for leading with cliche ridicule. I see no reason to proceed.

These are highly motivated, highly unpleasant personas. Their primary form of attack is personal insult, defocussing the original intent. They have won here at RI - and all you are doing by continuing to return here each day is get yourself wound up like a spring - exactly as they want. This place is a honeytrap and you are locked in. They know this - and prey upon it.

he posted a guy who is an islamophobic and he did not like being called out for linking to a guy who is an islamophobic

Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News

by Udo Ulfkotte Ph.D

https://www.amazon.com/Journalists-Hire ... 1944505474


It was a bestseller in German, then Ulfkotte died a very sudden death, and now the publication of that English translation has been stalled, without explanation, for nearly two years.


That reminded me, Mac... I was going to post this elsewhere, but now you mention it:



English transcript

..When I was sent to the Iran-Iraq war for the first time, the first time was from 1980 to July 1986, I was sent to this war to report for FAZ. The Iraqis were then ‘the good guys’.

I was bit afraid. I didn’t have any experience as a war reporter. Then I arrived in Baghdad. I was fairly quickly sent along in a bus by the Iraqi army, the bus was full of loud, experienced war reporters, from such prestigious media as the BBC, several foreign TV-stations and newspapers, and me, poor newbie, who was sent to the front for the first time without any kind of preparation. The first thing I saw was that they all carried along cans of petrol. And I at once got bad consciousness, because I thought: «oops, if the bus gets stuck far from a petrol station, then everyone chips in with a bit of diesel’. I decided to in the future also carry a can before I went anywhere, because it obviously was part of it.

We drove for hours through the desert, towards the Iraqi border. Approx. 20-30 kilometers from the border, there really was nothing. First of all no war. There were armored vehicles and tanks, burned-out long ago. The journalist left the bus, splashed the contents of the cans on the vehicles. We had Iraqi soldiers with us as an escort, with machine guns, in uniform. You have to imagine: tanks in a desert, burned out long ago, now put on fire. Clouds of smoke. And there the journalists assemble their cameras.

It was my first experience with media, truth in reporting.

While I was wondering what the hell I was going to report for my newspaper, they all lined up and started: Behind them were flames and plumes of smoke, and all the time the Iraqis were running in front of camera with their machine guns, casually, but with war in their gaze. And the reporters were ducking all the time while talking.

So I gathered courage and asked one of the reporters: ‘I understand one thing, they are great pictures, but why are they ducking all the time? ‘

‘Quite simply because there are machine guns on the audio track, and it looks very good at home.’

wow then you found me out
I know you took so much time and effort, I commend you on your mission. I understand there is no moderation here now. I understand completely what is going on....helpful hint see my avatar there to the left, it is really not big secret that I post a lot and I have been here since the beginning 14 years. So you kinda wasted a whole lot of time, proving I post a whole lot. But by all means continue with whatever you are up to maybe go back 13 years scour every last post I have made here, have fun

1. I'm amazed that I could take years-long breaks and still be that high on the list. This place is much smaller than I thought.

2. The benefit of SLAD archiving news stories in an age of paywalls and Mandela-ish "corrections" far outweighs the annoying, distracting, mind-numbing deluge of copypasta. Sometimes they're even useful, very useful, e.g. the Morley article.

3. Holy shit, though, that spike, over 30000, lmao. And the length...my god. How many average-sized book pages would that translate to? Like, 500 Infinite Jests?

4. Still, as long as you have a Page Down key or quick fingertips, it's tolerable. Takes 3-4 seconds to scroll past. Who cares.

5. Who cares if something is Islamophobic. Is it true? How is an anecdote that exposes how war propaganda gets manufactured Islamophobic, anyway? I don't get it.

thank you for your reasoned response FourthBase I appreciate it

this is what I was doing at Democratic Underground when Jeff told me he was starting this place and asked me to join. Jeff knew very well what I was doing and how I was doing it. This is just an example of what I did 15 years ago and what I continue to do. I am proud of the time I spent gathering information on Sibel and it is still all there. Got a question about Sibel I bet you will find it there. Sibel contacted and thanked me

forgive me but since my reputation is being trashed by a couple of toddlers I need to show what I have been doing for the last 15 years. This is nothing new I post what I find important/interesting

here's a fantastic thread started by my good friend DulceDecorum and if you look at it you will understand why I paste full articles because many of the links in this thread are now dead and lost to the world.
