This showed up in my inbox. Not sure what it was about, but made me think of whoever it was mentioning that they felt like slad had been reading PMs.

what I do fine odd is that a person alloneword who has contributed only 277 posts here feels the need to waste maybe half of them coming after me spending hours tracking my postings, one would think he would have better things to do like post something interesting...start a thread that someone would reply to? No his mission is to attack me so strange so very very strange

Here's what alloneword cutesy little simplistic self serving graph did not tell.......neglected to tell ....selectively could not tell the whole story You want to go back in time alloneword let's do that let's go back to when Jeff said this to me

It's just another form of 'gaslighting'. (it just means that whoever sent the PM thought better of it while it was still in their outbox and deleted it).

It happens a lot with forum posts, too. I sometimes get 'topic reply notifications' and find that the reply doesn't exist any more. They've magically disappeared when I click 'Display this post'. Yet another reason why I don't even bother any more. I'm fairly sure that they're all logged, though... likely available through the mods control panel. That would make an interesting graph. :D

The other common form is the quick edits - we're talking half a dozen plus within the first couple of minutes after a post is made. You read a reply, type a response, and lo! what you're replying to has changed. Hit refresh, changed again, then again, then again... Most people use the 'preview' function. Most people read what they've written before posting it. Most people make the odd edit to correct a typo or clarify a wording. But this isn't 'most people'. ;)

I'm sure this thread is filling up with the standard projection, evasion, deflection, smears and crap-flooding now - anything to try to deflect the focus of attention from the (publicly available) data I've posted.

So here it is again:

peartreed » Mon Oct 21, 2019 12:44 am wrote:The main reason I no longer participate on RI as often as before is the almost constant onslaught of acrimony, accusation and antagonism towards the most prolific members by the least tolerant. The strength of RI has historically been its inclusiveness, diversity and wide tolerance of opposing views. In recent times, like the nation itself, RI has become a divided encampment of fixed fanatical extremes. Attempts at judiciously moderating the acrimony have themselves divided into opposing techniques.

What intrigued me about RI years ago was the number of independent thinkers, the astute analysts of dogma, the curious who explored the unexplained, the entertaining personalities that were unique, different minds. Yet the most appealing aspect of it was the group dynamics of mutual support and interest.

Jack, instead, seeks a board that reflects his own anti-imperialist convictions in a cult-like acquiescence to his views and his vision of a viable exchange of reinforcing, similar and supportive articles, arguments and archived political blogs. He resents and resists mainstream media and its messengers as propaganda from its duped propagandists. SLAD, AD and other long-term regulars here instead post more popular and prolific opinion pieces about current issues in the news, particularly of anti-fascist and left wing, democratic, populism persuasion. That riles Jack and his acolytes like BS, Mac, RocketMan and coffin-dodger who share anti-imperialist scorn.

So Jack’s sycophantic supporters follow and mirror his constant complaint about flooding the board with copy/pasted mainstream news and views, and his mean criticism of the regulars responsible for its reproduction on RI. Their own cult-like conformity to this caustic cause is a further disruptive diversion. Few older regulars remain to read through the diatribes of denigration and dismissal of the dissidents.

It’s like the emotional contagion in the psychographics that Cambridge Analytica tracked for Trump’s campaign and used to target, agitate and radicalize selected social media platform users into an angry antiestablishment fervor enough to vote in an idiot buffoon as POTUS. Only this time the negativists are all imitating Jack and seeking to turn RI into the loyal Marxist-Leninist anti-imperialism of a gulag encampment of mutual admirers.

In order to achieve obedient conformity, he must first eliminate the prolific posters of mainstream news, and particularly work with compromising and urging the board’s moderators to do his bidding. Failing that, he will campaign and complain to Jeff behind the screen on other sites. If all else fails he will threaten to quit in a snit.

I suggest that Jack, instead, take his finger out of his nose and/or his posterior orfice to simply scroll past whatever copy-pasted posts and content offends his delicate sensibilities and inspires his furious fixations.

"Peartreed"* has managed to speak a few words of truth about SLAD:

the prolific posters of mainstream news


Is that why this board exists? For prolific posting of "mainstream news"?

Does "mainstream news" (corporate propaganda, State Department press release re-blogs, #Russiagate disinfo, etc.) lack for a platform?

Remember, we're not talking about someone arguing for a "mainstream" perspective, which people here often do.

We are talking about the wholesale, loving reproduction of corporate propaganda articles in toto, in real time, with daily proliferation of new thread titles and in 25-screen posts on every other thread -- obviously designed to flood all alternate points of view out of view and guarantee that no one incidentally browsing this board will ever see anything other than a majority of this propaganda, until they leave. It is as though someone wanted to create a fandom site for Google News aggregator. It is the effective neutralization of this place either as a place for alternate views or as a place where any discussion can take place. What is the purpose of this?


* This hypocritical lying sack of shit non-entity likely persona management artifact who has contributed zero insight to the board although it is a real human writing the texts, and is either a sock-puppet or team with Jerky, playing the good one and pretending to balance the latter's shithead aggression with "nice" arguments to protect the perpetual flooding. (Moved this part to footnote since it's not the main point.)
