Why do you let Meade shit all over...

Postby fisticuffs » Fri Apr 12, 2013 12:32 pm

Every Mayor Dave article? He isn't participating in a conversation or even posting about the content of the articles. He's tossing his feces at Mayor Dave. Seems like a no brainer to remove his petty bullshit from the site.

Carry on.

Online comments after news stories, videos, anything really, are one of the worst, most useless things the internet has given us. Readers opinions are not part of the story, I can come up with an opinion all on my own. It's like reading the news out loud at a bar at 1:30 AM and then asking for feedback, and the quality would be about even.

No, you don't have to read them, but just the fact that they're there cheapens the whole shebang.

Forums such as this are completely different. I come here for fun, expecting the bitchers and the haters and partaking in that myself occasionally. I don't read an actual news story and then wonder what some unemployable douchebag in a Seattle coffee shop has to say about it.

Note- This post is offering no opinion on Meade, just commenters in general.

Carry on

His Mr. Question Man approach is attracting just as favorable an audience as he does when he comes on the forum, I notice. I doubt Dave, or anyone else, is taking him at all seriously.

Personally, I enjoy reading Citizen Dave's column. I can disagree with Dave without thinking he's a freaking idiot. That's a good thing.

Dissent and free expression are key elements of any liberal democracy. Attempting to discourage - dissent, criticism, and even mockery of politicians and their public power-seeking - is essentially reactionary, illiberal, and fascistic.

With this thread, "fisticuffs" may be unintentionally revealing more about his political philosophy than he knows.

You're not offering dissent. You're stalking and bullying. You know it too but you're too huge a soulless douchebag to admit it. It's your name on those posts. Have fun living with that.

Meade, when they attack the messenger instead of the message, and call names and stomp like children, you have long past won the argument.

Bang! ..."godwin's law" - breached.

It appears that dark players of ridicule are finding purchase on sloppy.
M.H.

Edit- for 'clarity'- I am not going after Detritus's comment, other than to suggest that it contributes to said "sloppy" "purchase".

Whatever

Okay, that was from somebody who called everybody who disagreed with her a bunch of fucking idiots and said she was leaving the circle jerk.

Has it ever occurred to you leftists that JJoyce may have good reason to cower and cringe in fear of Merde, like the spineless jellyfish he is?

Merde? That's a funny typo. Look it up.

Dave C. Is happy that ANYONE is reading, let alone commenting on his blog.

Good show Meade (for all the internet's a stage, and we are merely players).

Why does the Isthmus let Meade do whatever he wants? JJoyce has intimated the answer in various posts over time:

1. Free verbiage for the website
B. Drives a lot of clicks whether from Meade defenders like Sandi and blaskaDog (not saying you are Blaska, Dog Boy, just that your content is redolent of Blaska) or those who find Meade's postings irresistibly trollish.
3. He uses his real name-- quite a boon depending on who, and how online curious, one's employer might be. Since Meade has neither employer nor shame, that makes him in some ways the perfect online nag.
IV. Whatever else we complain about with Jason, his is as much of a hands-off moderating as I've encountered in the dwindling number of message boards and listservs to which I've subscribed over the years. Letting the kiddies fight it out themselves is not only a method of parenting, but also a viable message board moderator's strategy.

I've never understood that. Sure I'm conservative on some things but Blaska is conservative on all things.

I have a better sense of humor and don't write people off when we disagree on a few things, even when we disagree on a lot of things.

Heck look at Henry and I always at each others throats, until we find common ground as Stu-called anti-Semites.
