And then there were two.

Post by Angry Andy on Wed May 23, 2018 3:16 pm

With Sassy's departure from this forum, I make it that I am the lone UK based left of centre poster.  I am brilliantly supported by Wolfie from down under, but the takeover of this forum by the right-wing(and Republicans is almost complete.
Seems a waste of time and effort bothering to post factual links to news that derides or is bad news for the Conservatives.  Responses are seldom offered, and debate comes in the shape of simply shouting Down the sites as Communist or fake news.
Head let that happen on his once lively forum. Now tumbleweed rolls down the scrolling newsreels.
T the same will probably happen here.

i think a lot of us or a mixture of left and right wing ideals - a lot of people on here don't even seem politically aligned as such just giving their views on each topic as it comes up

why did sassy leave? is she ok?

I didn't know that Sassy had left. Even if you put someone in ignore, it does spoil the flow of debate, especially if the person on ignore is a heavy poster.

It's a shame if anyone leaves, whatever their views or politics.
I don't have a particular stance to the right or left, depends on the issue, I don't think its a good thing to have one direction on things. I don't know what I am politically but I think important things health, education, transport, water, electric, gas type things should be owned by the nation for the nation. The rest, competition is good I suppose, provided the trickledown does happen. Globalisation would be good if it didn't take from Peter to employ Paul - usually at greatly reduced wages.

Before here, I never saw anyone on the left, right, in the middle. We just posted.

I can't see why it can't happen here.

Thanx Geli. I wonder who and why they they gave me a red.
Possibly the same people who don't want an opposite view to theirs.
I gave you a green.

Well I am only home from work and think its a shame why she has left. I hope that she returns

I think its also a shame, I am being dragged into this as a reason.

I am not on most of the time these days during the day, so think its poor to blame me for posting when I am online

There is nothing stopping people posting when I am here or not

I mean not much is actually posted when I am not online, so I failed to see how I am the issue. Or is the view, they want me to leave?

I hope that is not the case. There is many left wing people on here as well. Most posts are not even about politics anyway

I think didge gives out reds...as they don't count on the reputation register, he's the only one that does things for show.

Since I'm the left-most poster on this board (left even to sassy), why the hell do you think that you are all alone? Not only are you accompanied by me, veya, Wolf, Ben, Letcher and many more, but we continually out think and out maneuver the righty's every day. It's lefty paradise around here. Look at all the righty's that we have chased. They're all over on Flop, licking their wounds.

Righty's need the tribal feel, we don't. Hence, we admittedly do not pat each other's backs, nor do we give out the attaboys like they do. But you often see lefty's giving parallel opinions, side-by-side. Lefty's don't need tribal reinforcement, because we are together in reason.

Stick with us boy. And tell sassy to get back here.

How can I have given a red, when I was at work and not online

I have not given a red or green on this thread and if you see, two people must have given a red for the first post.

Which means it was two other people

I admit when I give reds or greens.

Hey ho

I do not want anyone to leave and have made this clear on numereous occasions.

I know you are a staunch Democrat Quill, I was really referring to UK based lefties who are possibly more au fait with British politics.
Certainly being a member here has enlightened me as to how rotten and corrupt the GOP are, every bit as selfish as our own Tory party.

So this thread is about having a go at didge then

No-no. I speak only generally...there are lots of reds on threads where you are involved, and against persons you're involved with. That's all. Maybe you have some secret puppy dog tagging along behind you.

Most people realize that not only do reds not record on any reputation register, but they use up an hour's worth of ability to record anything. So there's nothing but downsides to recording a red.

So basically you are paranoid then with reds on threads

Maybe its a reality that some people do not think you make good views but poor ones at times

Guess there maybe an ego issue you have there maybe.

Who knows eh?

Actually, I am in the process of rethinking my Democratic status.  I agree with certain righty's, Democrats are becoming 'snowflakes'.  It's the one thing I did not like about Obama...he encouraged Republican right into becoming where they are today...the imbecile's tools.  You've gotta kick their teeth in to earn respect.

I don't need any 'green' party, marijuana party, or any single-issue party.  I merely want a left-of-left party.  Socialists have become stigmatised over here.  Perhaps the re-emergence of the Progressive party is what is needed.

Leftys can't handle it when their views are challenged with intelligent common sense argument, and where they are shown up to be stupid/wrong etc... they are completely unable to admit anything other than their entrenched views are right, regardless of any amount of factual evidence or logic/reason to the contrary...


Because to them, that would mean having to think outside their partisan bubble, and then not only to have to start questioning the rest of their beliefs, which will fall like a house of cards in an instant, but also by their mere acceptance of anything outside of their pre approved set of lefty beliefs would mean that they would instantly have to start hating themselves for being a believer of non lefty views as much as they hate everyone else who doesn't follow the lefty doctrines to the letter...!!!


So they skulk off to another lefty echo chamber where they only have to hear lefty views being spouted and where they can all agree and reaffirm their stupid ideals with other closed minded like minded idiots...!!!

But I would say, if people aren't taking an interest in your threads, look for threads they will take an interest in. Change it up a bit.

And if you want more left-wing Brits here, perhaps you could invite them!

Believe me Ben, I would love to see more LW Brits here.
Many have gone, not to return. Korben Dallas. Joy Division. Scrat, Dear old Irn  Bru , now Sassy.
I have been told by many that this place is turning into Flop Mark 2, it's  hard to disagree.
It doesn't help having at least 1  mod who HATES lefties and bans them at the slightest reason. It took almost criminal activity by Major to finally get him banned.

korben dallas? wasn't he the one that was always at odds with head? can't remember what his old posting name was,,,,what happened to him anyway?

joy division was a weird perv

scrat was deranged - he used to be a decent poster at one time and you could disagree with him but still have a laugh but he turned worse than catman. he was a disgrace

all forums lost irn bru sadly

best you tell sassy to come back

I hope Sassy doesnt stop posting, but I have to say, if a person leaves because others dont support their own political views,surely there should be more to a debate forum than that.
As for everyone here being against Lefties, I dont see that.
I do think some are extreme.....on both sides, but so what?

I prefer the none political debates anyway......they are usually more balanced.

She's hardly ever here anyway from what I can see.

Seems a waste of time and effort bothering to post factual links to news that derides or is bad news for the Conservatives.  Responses are seldom offered, and debate comes in the shape of simply shouting Down the sites as Communist or fake news.
Head let that happen on his once lively forum. Now tumbleweed rolls down the scrolling newsreels.
T the same will probably happen here.

You know, I do think that the right wingers on here could reply to posts from the left wingers more often -- it is a debate forum after all.

But I would say, if people aren't taking an interest in your threads, look for threads they will take an interest in. Change it up a bit.

And if you want more left-wing Brits here, perhaps you could invite them!

Believe me Ben, I would love to see more LW Brits here.
Many have gone, not to return. Korben Dallas. Joy Division. Scrat, Dear old Irn  Bru , now Sassy.
I have been told by many that this place is turning into Flop Mark 2, it's  hard to disagree.
It doesn't help having at least 1  mod who HATES lefties and bans them at the slightest reason. It took almost criminal activity by Major to finally get him banned.


Is that your list of “decent” posters?

Scrat?
Banned from Sassy’s forum, abusive and disgusting about myself and others - you’re using him as a decent poster?

And JD? Lifelong forum troll?

You need to be smarter about making friends Andy.

And oh, Ben’s too-subtle post went straight over your head as I told him it would so I’ll say it bluntly, like I knew I would have to:

Make better posts you fucking whinger. A forum is a palace for debate so what if you and others stopped trying to manipulate and just got on with posting?


If you think Ben is easily told what to do, or that he doesn’t pretty much see pretty much everything he needs to, then youre stupid.
So toddle off and have a think about his reaction to this stupid, childish thread.

By the way! Scrat, JD and sassy, spent a fair amount of time, when I first arrived on this forum five years ago, advising Ben how RW I was, how awful I was and that he should “keep an eye on me”.
Did you join in, Andy?

Yeah. Like I said, manipulative.

It amuses me how some people think they know what's best for a forum when they clearly dont...but if that's the case, why don't they start their own forum and see how that goes?

I know Sassy did, and unforeseen circumstances prevented her from advancing it, but has the biggest most obviously manipulative, grudge holding poster (that's you Andy) ever started his own? he should....because he seems to want to run this place.

I think family matters meant she didn't have any time to spend there.

I have never been interested in running a forum, but I know to build one up you have to spend time on it and nurture it....plus stop arseholes invading it.

i think that was part of it, and it's understandable. I would probably feel the same tbh

I'm quite serious.  But you won't be so happy when you see where I go.  See, I think the Democrats are snowflakes...they let things slide too often.  When Merritt Garland was nominated to the Supreme Court by Obama, and the Republicans refused even to vote, not to mention confirm...why did Obama not have federal agents arrest Senate Majority leader McConnell for defrauding the US government?  He collected his paycheck while refusing to perform...fraudulent circumstances.  

That's a Republican method of government.  I despise Republican purposes, but I actually like their methods.  The way to handle a conservative is to cut off his nuts, shove 'em down his throat, and see if he dies of asphyxiation or exsanguination.  Be assured, he would extend the same courtesy to you.

Democrats have great ideas, but they are soft-bellied cowards when it comes to the fight.

Frankly, Ben doesn't seem to spend much time here. He's fortunate in that he has good and active mods, but he, himself, seems to spend no more than 20-minutes a day or less responding here or there.

Quill perhaps this is an "impolite question" and if so please feel free to refuse to answer BUT

you claim to be increasingly militant left wing...
you are a lawyer right?

how much "pro bono" work do you do to help the unfortunate poor........

Yes I would feel the same too Gelico, it must have felt like the heart had been halved from her forum.

Well this forum is well established, so it may not need the same nurturing as a newer forum, and like you say, Ben has good and active mods around.
I have a feeling that Ben is well aware of what happens here anyway....he is often logged in , just because he doesn't post a lot doesn't mean he cant see what's happening,

I hope Sassy doesnt stop posting, but I have to say, if a person leaves because others dont support their own political views,surely there should be more to a debate forum than that.

I hope Sassy keeps posting too... in fact, I'd like to see her posting more, and actually being more relaxed and more open to discussion about her views and her thoughts/reasonings behind her holding said views etc, instead of just occasionally popping up with what appear to be more like the sort of random angry outbursts that you would expect from an angsty teenager or some dangerous mental patient...!




As for everyone here being against Lefties, I dont see that.

I do think some are extreme.....on both sides, but so what?

Can you give some examples of what you think are 'right wing' views said on here, and what you think are 'extreme right wing' views said on here...?

And who these posters are who are saying the 'extreme right wing' things...?

Not really Tommy because I skim over most of the political threads especially when they turn into arguments.
I just think some people  judge others by the political views they hold instead of taking the whole character into consideration.

I assume you mean Lord Foul? He always provides a good reason for banning somebody and the vast majority of the time runs it past the rest of us first. So if you've got a specific member who was banned in mind, we've probably got the discussion of "why" documented. I'll let you decide whether you want to go over that territory again.
