Taking a break. He got bored of certain people and thought that the forum wasn’t LW enough.

I have never understood why people would want to post on a forum where everyone agrees.
What a bore.

What a bore.  

Well, there's agree and disagree.  But at least one of you is a mod who has proven s/he will use the police power for political points of view.

It's no fun when the site orders you as to what you must think.  I think that's what certain people are saying.

Mind you, it's only a guess.

I gave no indication it was you.  In fact, on any forum, when you get a sense that admin is using police power to bend opinion, it leaves you uncomfortable.  Like, uncomfortable to remain.

I certainly know that is why Wolf and I vacated FF.

I said s/he or she/he...meaning without gender. I do that intentionally when I don't want to leave hints. As I said, it's just my opinion. I could be wrong, so I don't want to be specific as to anyone, just as to the challenge.

I've listened, quite acutely.  I think that is a valid basis for erudition.  But I reckon it's best for people to speak for themselves.

Even if I'm wrong about the missing subject, I would still feel uncomfortable with someone in power using police powers to exercise his or her whims. As I say, that happened to Wolf and me over at FF and I didn't like it.

Evidence of eddie's claim that Andy wants a left-wing dominated forum is sadly lacking..

What's wrong with Andy complaining about Victor's constant bullying and harassment of 'lefties' on here..

I still have to question why left wingers have been basemented so much, while those racist twats like Nems, Horatio and smelly' have been able to get away with so much trolling crap over the years..

Then we see nicko complaining about the kind of language and insults that veya or myself have used, then turning around and using the same language in posting insults against others on here.

As for Freddie, he himself still remains one of the more delicate petals on here, especially when anybody puts down his beloved Btitish "class" system..

After so many claims and counterclaims on a couple of threads these last couple of weeks,  i decided to have a quick look at the membership list...

Veya's last visit was Monday last week, Nov 18th, so he's still keeping an occassional eye over how you dudes are behaving, even if he's not posting..

Cass, Raggamuffin, Syl and HT are all travelling in stealth mode, so that the dates of their last drop-ins/fly-bys remains "unknown".

Wolf and I have run together since January 2008.  We met on a site known as Female First (FF) owned and operated by one Stephen Rey, of Ashton in Makerfield. Wigan.  It was predominately RW, and we were a part of a large counter-cultural LW group.

We left and started a group known as Ministry, after one of our number who was a Colonel in the British Army (proving that we were not anti-military).  We went, as a group, including Wolf, me, and a lady known as Oriental Lady (from Hong Kong), and joined Sphinx's group, thence to Speak Freely, Victor's group, thence to here.  Wolf and I have been close friends and partners for almost 11-years.

You mean the way that your fellow right-wing Brit's ignore your own frequent swearing, and occasional racist comments;  and your hypocritical abusive insults against sassy, eddie and other women you disagree with --  despite yoir laughable claims that you will never insult women  ???

People often vote with their feet.

I do think it's silly that people keep bitching about right wing, left wing bias around here. That's not the problem. Its childish insults and name calling that causes the problem, not political positions. I manage to go through life with plenty of people with very different political views. I will be spending several hours today with friends that have widely different perspectives. We will all get along well, because we won't be dicks to each other. Unfortunately on forums, many people behave in a manner they never would in real life. That's where mods need to step in and help them progress.

It wasn't me.  Laughing  I have never given anyone a red, and I never will. I'm not into that tripe.
My stats in my profile confirm this.
I do give a few greens tho, cos I get plenty lol.

I don't do reds, either.  Waste of time, as it isn't recorded or tallied anywhere.  More important, it invokes flood control, which prevents giving of greens.  I'd rather spread joy.

As to "childish insults and name calling", I remember when Maddog used to fling around the name 'o "Walter Mitty" quite often.  Possibly that's the duplicity that invoked the red by someone?

Perhaps the red was for the pot calling the kettle black?

Not often and a couple of times to you after you constantly calling him a redneck. One of many poor insults you threw at him

Its clear where now the red came from and not even bothered that it was from you

Many are guilty of mudslinging here, but the above was the biggest and poorest attempt to deflect from the real culpret

Why not admit that you did?

Maddogs post was spot on the money

Yes I can and do lose control in debate, but his post was spot on and I try to learn from that

Hence the only person who gave a red was someone in spite of him, for making a great post. Then attempt to point the finger back at him. That being you Quill

You hit all the markers for doing so and not bothered that you did

The reality is he is one of the few posters on here that never allows himself to get into spats

Yes he may retaliate with walter mitty, which is actually funny, but you often degrade him derogatively based on geography by using redneck. Just like most racists do

I think you know by now that I am an independent thinker. But British chauvinism seems to be the rule toward former colonists. We don't have any Canadians or Kiwis, but I've experienced the same wi' y'all and them...enough to see the trend.

I don't have to put up with that shit, cause we beat the crap outta y'all in two wars. And fer sure, we could have your lunch any time we wanted today. But being in the business of justice, it's not hard to suss out the motives with RW'ers on this site. So yeah, I'm usually on the side of Wolf and Veya because I can reckon where y'all are coming from.

Y'all are more concerned about form, and less about truth and justice. Y'all criticize them for rough-around-the-edges, but y'all don't don't care if you shut down the NHS, and everyone dies. Y'all RW'ers are champions of selfishness and the rich, and you don't give a damn about the poor and hungry.

Damn right I'm on the other side, nicko.

I have to agree with several people here, and it's going to be a bit contradictory but for anyone who's confused, see my title or my signature and it will make perfect sense:

I don't like it when people ignore the message of a statement and choose to fixate on how it was phrased. That's pure-D snowflakery. If you take a lot of offense at how someone phrased something, that tells me you have nothing to say about the point they made.

On the other hand ...

If you're going to go online and make yourself a spokesman for your political ideology, you might take a page from the leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement.

They chose Rosa Parks as their poster girl very carefully. When they found out about her defiance on the bus, they combed through her background, looking for drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, anything at all that their foes could use to make her into the villain of the story.

So if you want to speak for the left, the right, the middle, etc., it would help your cause more if you sound like a mature, level-headed adult.

Yet on one point I disagree

You do not need to take your point from anyone

Just simple stop being an arse if you disagree and rather reason your points

Yes i fall foul of this and get anger based on my position of seeing Jews suffer in history. Its why I may get annoyed but its no excuse

So here now I apologise to Eilzel and Andy on this, for views I have said to them. But I will not apologise for how I feel how both are forsaking jews for political socialist views.

As we have seen this before in history

Ahah, so you are the one who champions "childish insults and name calling" around here.  Whataboutism is a tacit admission of guilt.  I must admit, even before you confessed I thought of you, didge.

Redneck is not an insult.  The appellation has a unique and fascinating history.  In Scotland in the 1640s, Scots-Calvinists (Covenanters) rejected rule by Catholic bishops, often signing manifestos using their own blood. Some wore red cloth around their neck to signify their position.  They were called rednecks to signify that they were the rebels in what came to be known as The Bishop's War that preceded the rise of Cromwell.

Eventually, the term began to mean simply "Presbyterian", especially in communities along the Scottish border. Because of the large number of Scottish immigrants in the pre-revolutionary American South, the appellation migrated to the United States.  Frankly, a good Scotsman would be proud to be called 'redneck'.

If you spent as much time on history as you do on "childish insults and name calling", you'd know that didge.

Maddawg has referred to himself as a proud 'Redneck'...

If you genuinely wanted to insult him, call him a "Yankee"..

I admitted that I do and at times throw names. The fact you looked to cast back blame at maddog here, says everything, because you and only ou have been called Walter mitty. It was a clear case of a mask slipping off you, being as you constantly call him rednck. Which is a racist insult

It has nothing to do with the Scottish but a derogatory view of white people in the state of Georgia now applied to all white southern people. Frankly this shows up the racism within the left again.

Your view is like saying a good Jewish person would be proud to be called a "Shylock"

Its shows you have little idea about Jewish people, let alone scots.

I'm not really worried about being called a redneck. Its derogatory in the manner that Quill uses it no doubt, but it's a mild insult. Its definitely not very creative.

He earned the name Walter Mitty, not because of any positions or beliefs that he has, but because of his fabricated stories. Like working out with Chuck Norris or being a long time friend of Camille Paglia.

Shocked What is racist about a tag for Scottish Calvinists? I'm a Scot. You are not. I am not offended, and you are imposing your views on us poor Scots. How ethnocentric of you.

Now, in the spirit of comity, shall we discuss the Maltese race?

Or, you are guilty of doxing, and even more, false doxing. How would you like it if I urged that, so far from being a Texan, you were an inmate at Stateville, or Guantanamo? You are addicted to meth, as evidenced by your decomposing teeth. You are either in for rape, or terrorism on behalf of ISIS? I can make up lies about you, too.

But I don't because I deal in a world of fact. Instead, I honor you by calling you Redneck. You RW'ers have your alt.truth, by which you make up shit and toss it against the wall and see what sticks. Himmler invented the tactic, and you fit in rather well. In fact and deed, you are just a low-rent, fooking liar.

No, the term Redneck, today, is synonymous with a southern, non-Catholic, non-Jewish, non-black, gun-toting, anti-government ideologue. They are what they have become, and that's neither your fault nor my fault. Most of it they would cop to.

But they suffer from being the core personality for the white nationalist movement.

I don't give reds, and I didn't do that one. If you want to sort that out, look for someone who sees malevolence in something that Redneck stands for.

As you know, I speak directly. I believe he has a far-too-loose association with truth.

So he does give reds. I wonder if gives them while working out with Chuck Norris and chatting with Ms Paglia?
