i never said i didnt like her.
i just dont get why she bothers. its all poo and terribly immature garbage for the most part.
why would anyone want to host such a thing?

oh well.

i dont suppose it actually matters.. i wish her well and all but.. how many hate threads
can one read? and all day?

seems a bit.. pointless to me.

it isnt anything to do with the politics of the place. i dont care about that lol
the rest of it well.. i just dont understand why she would want to do it.

Just Plain Nuts.

Oh, I didn't mean to imply you didn't like her. :)

I think I get why she does, but I couldn't speak for her...

i know you didnt i was saying that for the certain ppl who like to run around quoting ppl's words lol
it was a clarification more than anything.
that has happened to me before. someone ran to another forum telling out of context tales of what i actually said.

the only reason i can think of is because, it is special to her.. her creation.
understandable, if that is it.
except, where it has been let run into the ground.
that is the part that puzzles me.

It brings it back to the topic of surveillance. People emulate their masters. The micro effect of the same thing happening in world politics.

When you're being misquoted or taken out of context it's that action. We've seen it first hand. This is why I am so against this type of big brother stuff. It makes it socially acceptable on some level.

oh, well.. i guess you could think of idiot trolls and shït disturbers in that way..

i dont tend to give them that much credit though lol

of course, the others eat that garbage up.. in fact, it is all they want nowadays on most forums.

used to be, that if a troll started up, the regulars would kick him to the curb pretty quick.

now, well.. they are mostly all idiot trolls..

ppl expect to be insulted, hear drama, and get bored if they are not targeting someone.

it is the thing to do now.

i have no idea how ppl can think of that as 'normal' but.. they do and to them, it is.

I think it's done purposefully to disrupt discussion which in many cases it's succeeded. It sort of means that discussions are socially managed by the people themselves detrimentally rather than TPTB. It controls the conversation.

Then the more extreme, misinformation is also allowed to propagate uncontested.

There are some themes and topics that keep rising no matter how many times they have been proven wrong.

I stood back and just lurked for the sake of observing what was happening, and i'm probably not the only one who has. It's why I don't bother so much and invest less in forums now.

It's why I think some sensitive topics that sometimes need nurturing aren't explored at any depth.

well frankly, i havent noticed very many threads that are terribly important there.

they start with drama and then degrade from there.

if anyone really wanted to explore topics, they wouldnt go there, or places like it, to

do so.

i mean what else do you really expect from ppl who think gradeschool insults are funny?

why would anyone go to those places and even attempt at a serious or intelligent topic?

has that in any way changed them, for the past few years? if anything they have

gotten worse. and giving them something other than what they want, is a sure way

for them to trash it.

but i dont think they are trashing it to stop anything being discovered lol

they are simply doing so because its a new thread. doesnt matter what it is about, at all.

just another blank wall to add their garbage to, thats all it is.

What over? I understand that in the US quite a high portion of people also hold 'secret' security clearance as well. The NSA is about eight times the size of the CIA.
