proof of cowardice

You never know when your comment might strike too close to home. So I'll take pictures.

Outstanding. Just outstanding.

Ender: WagTheSlate, I think, to a certain extent, is working, and it's gaining momentum, in no small part because of you. Stick with this project, see it through (to whatever ends you have in mind, spoken or unspoken), and you have my support and contributions.

And thanks. It's nice having all y'all putting words in my mouth after I've been (ball) gagged. Thanks, y'all.


MsZilla said...

I also want to congratulate. Well phrased. You're smacking a brick wall I'm afraid, but it was well struck.

And swit, you're not alone in your dirty little secret. At some undisclosed near future date I'll be another year closer to having to update my driver's license myself. And ironically, you're a year older than me. ;)

switters said...

Yo, Zill. Shut up. I'm younger than all y'all.

If you would (for whatever reason I'm having trouble navigating kos) could you link any posts you do there here or on The Fray?

A request, mind you. Not a demand.

I'm only as old as I feel, right? Well this fence business is making me feel old and worn out. Or is it young, as when the world was new?

(Movie reference, anyone?)

MsZilla said...

Sure - it's up there right now. I've had this done since this time last month. The only reason I didn't do it before was Elbo's recent post on a very similar analogy.

As far as fences and feeling old, I have another quote for you. "It's amazing how much mature wisdom resembles being too tired."

I'm feeling very mature and wise today. ;)

I thought this was remarkably telling:

They accuse TK of being swit. TK replies that he's not swit and asks for a link. An accuser replies with a false "exact quote" proving that TK is swit. TK replies with the correct quote, which, while mildly ambiguous, can in no way be interpreted as "proof" that he's switters.

That reply, along with many of TK's other replies, disappeared, but the accusation stands.

What this actually proves:

On kos, a poster cannot defend himself against false accusations if the Trusted Users decide to suppress him.

I've never posted here before. (0 / 0)
I'm sure the site manager can check my IP.

Switters specifically said he was coming back as you.

Link please?
Amazing - you just made that whole-cloth.

Right here, Switters: (1+ / 0-)

Uhm, that was a compliment (to me). (0+ / 1-)
Where do you get, from that comment, that Switters was posting under this nic?

You should be more conscientious about "exact words."
His comment was made after my response.
Feel free to check time/date, if you're motivated enough to be accurate.
Fascinating, the way you warped reality to prove a point.
Thanks for supporting mine.

Whatever. (0 / 0)
Even if you are not switters, the rule is that you don't joke about blaming the victim or being a KKK member. End of story.

"End of story", indeed.

MsZilla said...

The more time I spend over there today, the more time I think I'm going to have to spend in the shower tonight. I'm gonna have to Lysol my eyeballs as it is.

I've got a beachhead, but I've been reading around and I honestly don't know where to go from here tomorrow.

I figured I didn't have much in common with them ideologically. I didn't realize that I actually don't have anything in common with them beyond our common use of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen molecules as cellular material.

This is worse than going on a Macintosh graphics designers forum for a Windows-based CAD instructional designer.

Question: Do you think it would anyone any good at all for me to tilt at this particularly obtuse and noxious windmill? If so, can someone give me a suggested tack to take?

TenaciousK said...

Ender - very nicely done. The pic is a little hard to read, but it's so nice to have evidence.

DC - thanks. That was one of the most humorous exchanges. That's a "trusted user" there I'm conversing with - note which reply she troll-rated? Very funny!

MZ - The lovely thing about parody is that you can magnify the ridiculous qualities of your subject, allowing close examination of the ludicrous aspects, all in a humorously nonthreatening way.

Unfortunately, they seem humorless over there. The only approach I can think to take is to post about the larger national political scene, the broken aspects of same, and draw parallels.

But I'm not convinced they're all humorless. I'm hoping there's a reasonably large group of people over there who are bright, get it, and keep quiet.

Let us know when you get banned...

TenaciousK said...

Oh, and Swit?

I'm forty.

Dawn Coyote said...

Ender: you've been disappeared from kos.

switters: Happy Birthday. I'll spare you the audioblog file of me singing it to you, though it was hard to resist.

bacon: if you're reading - congrats.

I'm spending entirely too much time here.

Anonymous said...

Yikes, what a bunch of geezers. I haven't even outlived Jesus yet. (I'm 34 in December.) Switters: I'll (conveniently) celebrate tomorrow by watching football and not thinking about it.

My site meter turned up a couple of that were done on fraysters' names (keifus & tenacious; keifus & dawn coyote). I think it's some of the kossies researching us.

(This is fun, kind of like Lord of the Flies.)


topazz said...

if you go over to DailyKos, just do a search on comments from "Eternal Hope" - her latest are hilarious, prim and proper - she's troll rating someone for calling a public figure a "boob"

pissenlit said...

I take it if you reply to a comment, instead of directly to the original post, no one ever sees it? I noted the presence of mszilla's new friend, "stalker" if you will, from kos, but it's not visible on the mainpage, or even apparent that I replied.
