*hangs head in shame and sulks*

Due to the Censorship that makes Stalin smile, I am forced to part from this site.

I hope that one day, the Moderators can realize that power is not meant to be abused.

So for the people who will read this in the 1 minute it is up until sstalin deletes it.

2001-10-13 06:10:19 PM  
hey c'mon Bobo. that's why stalin won. PLEASE, don't go.
2001-10-13 06:10:26 PM  
Tee hee.

The filter changed comment(s) hit(s) into commentshiats!
2001-10-13 06:14:50 PM  
I don't blame him, Bugster. It's extremely annoying to have your comments edited out on the whims of the mods here. Why bother?

Yeah, it's FARK, and it's humor, but it's also about the comments section, and saying your piece.

If there was some way of knowing what's going to get blasted, it would be easy enough to deal with, but having your comments disappear based on the varied opinions of whatever mod happens to be reading at the time makes posting pointless.

There are no guidelines other than a moderator's whim that he doesn't like what you have to say.

I feel awkard saying the same words that Communist Zach De La Rocha said, but those with the power will use it to cover the evidence of the existance of the enemies. Winners write the history books, Winners dictate who says what around here and these men are getting to be winners.
2001-10-13 06:16:23 PM  
and it is awkward to be defended and asked to come back here.

I guess my profile won't be incorrect until October 14th.
2001-10-13 06:18:02 PM  
Hehehe, He changed his profile before he left. His bio now reads:

From June 20th to October 13th.
Happy trails
2001-10-13 06:18:50 PM  
let's see...boobies.
2001-10-13 06:21:30 PM  
Bye bye Bobo

Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out
2001-10-13 06:21:52 PM  
Bobo555: Don't let the door hitcha on the ass on the way out! PS: Slashdot is a much superior place to troll than Fark. Trust me on this. I troll Slashdot daily! Give it a try.
2001-10-13 06:23:52 PM  
That's right Benjamin, it is annoying to have your comments killed. I have had several. There is no point whining about it, you just piss them, and me, off. They have a tough job putting up with everyone's shiat. Deal with it.

We, the cool people, all want our funny fark back and this continuing argument that hops from one thread to the next, day after day is not it. It ends up being the same shiat over and over again, in different words. Shut the fark up already. To quote Woody Allen, "Aren't you embarrassed to be pontificating in public like that?" Go to slashdot if you want that.

Bobo, I thought you said you were leaving. Go now!
2001-10-13 06:23:56 PM  
Drew-- by moderator proxy-- is welcome to cut out any post he likes. It's his site. There is no right to free speech.

But it sucks.

If it wasn't for the varied and dissenting posts of the comments section, FARK would wither.

I come here for the commentary, and if the message board becomes one big happy circle-jerk of 100% left (or right, or moderate) leaning opinions, there's no point visiting.

2001-10-13 06:23:59 PM  
here are some celebration boobies, for your departure NOT safe for Work
2001-10-13 06:25:26 PM  
Code_Archeologist: Damn you for stealing my comment!
2001-10-13 06:26:55 PM  
Benjamin: "varied and dissenting posts" are fine, but when someone is outright trolling that's different.
2001-10-13 06:27:31 PM  

2001-10-13 06:27:37 PM  
Sorry, NexR.

What's the cut-off for the cool club and the "glory days" of FARK?

2001-10-13 06:28:19 PM  
flamebait is flamebait, some posts deserve to be deleted, most never should have seen the light of day. i specifically requested my posts be offed, and am glad it was done.
2001-10-13 06:29:45 PM  
yeah, how them knicks. wow, Jon Stewart. Whoa, Rush is deaf..
2001-10-13 06:30:09 PM  
Then let's be even-handed about it.

For every right-wing troll you care to name, I can spot you a left wing one.

Say goodbye to Bobo, let's boot De La Rocha, or Sugarlarry, etc.

Being a right winger does not by definition make you a troll.
2001-10-13 06:32:15 PM  
Sorry Benjamin, I know you're an old timer. And I was being sarcastic with the "cool people" comment. I was just defending the mods so they don't have to.

I'm done biatching, carry on. I really don't care that much anyway. If its a good argument, I have no problems with it, and I'd love to join in, but like I said, this same political debate has been going on for weeks. My brain is starting to turn around inside my head.
2001-10-13 06:32:19 PM  
is there anywhere to get a transcript of it? the video kept skipping and i missed a good bit of what he said.
2001-10-13 06:32:44 PM  
hey, nonetc...

blowfish do. That one got canned. So did yours.
2001-10-13 06:44:25 PM  
Sorry, I'm just reading the thread now, what exactly was said that was so offensive that got everyone mad at bobo?
2001-10-13 06:47:17 PM  
Bobo555 = DeLaRocha = Christian-Conservative = RobbieFal

All the same troll.
2001-10-13 06:48:10 PM  
Jon Stewart is awesome and so was his monologue. I was actually on the Daily Show once (for their Boo Berry piece). Didn't get to meet Stewart, but I did meet Steven Colbert... and goddamn, he is a funny bastard. It was so hard to keep a straight face anytime he spoke.
2001-10-13 06:50:55 PM  
a simple threadjacking usually drives bobo off into the tar pit of his twisted mind. But out and out deletion?
Cmon mods, part of the fun farking is heaping abuse on trolls.
I should know, I start some of the shiat around here and you guys seem to take it well.

Two fagS walk into a bar,..........
2001-10-13 06:57:20 PM  
Whoa Mike.. we didn't need to get that hostile with the bunching in of stuff.

(random markout: EAZY MOTHERfarkING E ON MTV2! THERE IS A GOD!)

can I get the 4 articles posted from CC and Bobo credited to my RobbieFal post count?

Do you know what articles were posted from Bobo? I must have been sloppy one night.
2001-10-13 07:00:57 PM  
but letting sgamer in on the joke was fun. For his sake, I will not paste the logs of me asking for Bobo's IP.

Drew knew also.

I guess I need to vent my faked Conservative or Liberal-ness somewhere new now.

I still think Mike could have disconnected RobbieFal from being a troll, since I really don't troll much and I am apathetic to taking sides.
2001-10-13 07:03:52 PM  
Anyways, I am too busy to start stuff now. Since I am redoing my Fark Profile. A list of the 191 articles I got on would be helpful in helping me compile the list on my profile
2001-10-13 07:38:35 PM  
I-Mockery: Can you give us the details of being on the Daily Show? I vaguely remember the Boo Berry piece, but I might be confusing that with something on X-E.
2001-10-13 07:41:04 PM  
Code_Archeologist - And a 1000 more will come. Their motto is, "We don't die, we multiply!"
2001-10-13 07:59:13 PM  
So anyway, back to the TOPIC, thanks to whoever posted the Stewart clip. I'd missed it but heard all about it. It moved me to tears, and I don't question Stewart's sincerity one bit. So a couple folks wanted to make some biatchy comments at the beginning and threw this whole thing into a tailspin. FARK 'em, and bravo for the mods for culling a few inflammatory posts out.

If you think that's censorship, go to and post with the ultra right-wing extremist Nazi nutbags. If you so much as stray from their dogma your account will be immediately terminated. Kudos to FARK for allowing a balance of opinions, but also knowing how far is too far.

2001-10-13 08:13:57 PM  
Jons comment on the Statue of Liberty being the view is perfect. Last night was the first time I went over the verrazano bridge since the attack where I wasn't driving. I was able to actually look, I saw the empire state building lit up in red white and blue, noticed the bright lights at the WTC area and then noticed the Statue of Liberty. It was quite odd, because mixed with the anger and disgust of the loss of life was the feeling of MY CITY being damaged.

Yes the skyline is different today but it doesn't make this city any less great than it was before the attack and I agree with Jon Stewart that it has brought a great city closer together.

We'll weather these individual attacks shoulder to should, we will outlast the fuel of these disturbed individuals. Yes many of us civilians may be intentionally and indiscriminatly killed in the process, while the rest of the world complains when we accidently kill a few civilians in the process of bring down just one of the mechanisms behind these horrible crimes. But when the dust settles and the smoke clears, we will still be here, stronger than ever.
2001-10-13 08:27:46 PM  
all of you so called patriots have no right to spout off about the "land of the free" when you yourselves openly support the cencorship you critisize when it occurs anywhere but your own backyard.
you are hypocrites.

i didnt like bobos comments either but they are a part of history. by deleting them you are showing yourselves to be nothing but fascists with no real appreciation or reverence for freedom of speech. you seem to understand that it is an idea that can be turned on and off depending on your mood, and its a good thing when the freedom is yours. (and yours to take away)
but do you actually understand why it is the cornerstone of your liberty? do you understand WHY it is important?
you insult bobo, you insult yourselves, and you insult others by singlehandedly dictating what they can and cannot read. perhaps someone DID want to read his posts?
are you so weak willed that you cannot ignore the trolls? is your threshhold for taking offense so delicate that you insist on closing your eyes and humming whenever someone says something you dont like? do you believe that you do reality justice by attempting to rewrite it to conform to the standards of your simple minds? and does the finished product really become real?
whats the point of making comments or engaging in debate at all? why bother creating the chatroom?

i have a suggestion. remove the chatroom and let the moderators make all the posts. at least then no-one could critisize you for shiatting on the very flag and principles you claim to love.
you arent worthy of your so called liberty. and you prove over and over that the flag youve become fixated on to the point of vacuity is nothing more than a symbol.

you know, its kinda funny and a little sad that by making this argument for freedom of speech, i'll probably be labelled troll too. if thats the case, i'll frame it and put it on my wall as something to be proud of.
2001-10-13 08:30:21 PM  
2001-10-13 08:40:58 PM  

I agree, not with you personally perhaps, but with you point. If the mods want to ruin this, then they've gotten a good start.
2001-10-13 09:06:22 PM  
"Where's Bobo going?"

"He's going to cry!!!!!"

That's the second time in as many days that I've seen someone inflamed passions on FARK, gotten their asses chewed, then been all like, "Gosh, well, guess I won't be comin' round here anymore, bye," hoping that others will be all like "Oh no! Don't go!" Such childish passive-aggressive bullshiat. Go already, if you ain't got the bullocks to stand your ground!
2001-10-13 09:20:24 PM  
Do you hear it? That sound off in the distance! Its the Waaaaaaaaahmbulance and its coming for you One2Eight
2001-10-13 09:21:03 PM  
You want free speech... get a soap box and go out on the corner.

Don't like getting moderated on someone else's server; get your own!
2001-10-13 09:50:01 PM  
This is embarrasing. Incredible no.
2001-10-13 10:26:03 PM  
deleting them you are showing yourselves to be nothing but fascists with no real appreciation or reverence for freedom of speech.

I'm not sure who cries more Jon Stewart or the dinks who whine about being censored... like anyone reads these stupid comments (mine included).

Besides, who said this is a public forum? Does the bill for the fark server's Internet connection come to your house?

2001-10-13 10:29:00 PM  

... although Stewart's show is usually fantastic.
2001-10-13 10:40:10 PM  
"My God...we get to sit under our desk and eat cottage cheese!"
Classic... albeit a very sad monologue....
2001-10-13 10:54:55 PM  
Cheshire_cat_sf, the full video of the daily show episode on Boo Berry can be found HERE. The "low quality" version of it is the only one that's currently available... the high quality version will be back online soon though.
2001-10-13 11:14:39 PM  
You know... This is off topic but I think spurtreynolds has excellent taste in Boobies...
2001-10-13 11:19:49 PM  
What's happening to us people????
2001-10-13 11:38:06 PM  
I'm pretty sure I missed most of this thread due to lack of interest...the clip was good, but the book was better
2001-10-14 12:03:51 AM  
note to self:post image from goatse, biatch and moan if anyone wants it deleted.
