Felgraf: I'm sure there's some combination of those that has an inherent internet meaning that I'm either missing, or not allowed to actually post the name of.


Well, conservatives are fond of old men with wide stances...

/Seriously, I didn't notice that one.
//Oh well, can't win them all.

That... that would be like the Holocaust.

Yep, pretty scared that a position on which 98% of climatologists agree

By "98% of climatologists," they actually surveyed "pretty much anyone who cared to vote on it," not climatologists.

The actual question was this: "Has the Earth warmed significantly since the Little Ice Age?"

When they added the qualifier "did humans contribute to that warming to a significant degree," the number drops into the 70% range. When they restrict the question to things like "humans are causing uncontrollable anthropogenic global warming," they get a helluva lot of "I don't knows."

Generation_D: your blog sucks

 
2012-04-30 01:42:16 PM  

cirby: He wasn't. That's the thing about Twitter - all of the posts are right out there for everyone to see. You can go back and see that his posts were pretty mild, each time he gets reinstated. That's one way you can tell he wasn't lying: Twitter admins can go back and look at old posts - even deleted ones.

On the other hand, the lefties who were getting him banned were also pretty forthright about their actions. For example, one of the complaining accounts had zero followers, was following only this one guy - and bragged about it in that Twitter feed. Yep - they've been making up brand new accounts just to get people they disagree with banned. And they're dumb enough to admit it, on Twitter.

They've also been doing it with a number of other right-wingers, and were successful in censoring a dozen or so Twitter users who had the audacity of saying something they couldn't counter.

A couple of the lefties have already had their accounts banned by Twitter admins for their actions, and it looks like a lot more will in the near future. You see, that flagging action is also a permanent record, and it's easy enough for Twitter admins to look at the offending accounts and see that the original complaint was unfounde

Holy balls. Over the past 3.5 years I've watched the right wing grow increasingly paranoid, make less and less sense, and grasp more and more desperately at anything they can get their hands on. Every step of the way has become more and more pitiful. Every step of the way I think "Wow, they've gone full retard. I can't imagine how they can get any more insane." Then, like clockwork, they show me that there's still an even lower rung they can stand on. This is just amazing.

CSB: The other day I was driving through Appalachia on business. I saw a billboard for a right-wing radio station and turned it on for the lulz. I couldn't even laugh. When I turned it on the guy was talking about how jury duty is communism and that to allow yourself to be on a jury is supporting terrorism. WTF? It's wasn't even coherent. In one sentence the guy used all the following words: leftist, liberal, socialism, communism, fascist, and Marxist. Again, that was all in one sentence.

This wasn't even close to political discourse; it was mental illness. This guy's rambling had many signs of schizophrenia. It had clanging, looseness of association, nonsensical logic, word salad, severe anxiety, hypersensitivity to criticism (he had a caller question his logic and he flew off the handle), delusions of grandeur (he stated that he was on a mission to save America from the socialists), thought blocking (he stopped mid-sentence at least 4 times and couldn't finish the sentence during the 5 minutes I listened). I'm sure there were more, but I'm not a psychiatrist.

I was just surprised that people use Twitter for something other than posting scantily clad pictures of themselves, or making funnies. The way these people are using Twitter, I can see why they're being banned. No sexy pictures, no funny, why would anybody bother?

[img1.fark.net image 54x11] SOME GUY NO ONE'S EVER HEARD OF GOT SUSPENDED FROM TWITTER FOR A COUPLE HOURS SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING

Guys, you should not take Citrus Shindig seriously, and here is why.

Look at his name.

Now, think of what some synonyms for that name might be.

Like, hrm. Lime Party?

Lemon celebration?

I'm sure there's some combination of those that has an inherent internet meaning that I'm either missing, or not allowed to actually post the name of.


And......that means what, exactly? What's in a name? Book/cover, etc.

Oh look everybody! Felgraf? WTF is a Felgraf?

Let's all not listen to Mr. Non-sensical Name.

There's another Twitchy post with more detail: Here


For the love...

Lying you are talking about: twitter poster tried to cover up something up about his previous posts.
Lying I am talking about: twitter poster provides this type of content: "98% of climatologists agree! Global warming is NOT man made."

if you are going to cite something, find a real source, not wikipedia.

how much of man made global warming is due to deforestation (from your link)? Why aren't people focusing on stopping people from doing that?

Since there are more trees in America than there were 100 years ago, so once again America is stepping up.

On YouTube it's much worse. Often you'll get Christians filing false DMCA against atheist video channels and it's an incredible pain to get YouTube to restore. But hey, I'm sure it's totally Christian to bear false witness and to lie.

I will be retweeting anything with @ChrisLoesch 's name in it untill @twitter @Support returns his account #FreeChrisLoesch

I read this, and ostensibly it is in english. But then the meaning either slips away or was never there to begin with so I read it again, and again, and again. And each time the meaning seems further away, like the memory of a dream that only fades faster the more you try to recall what it was about. And I wonder, did a human being really write this? Or was it a robot, programmed in a form of call and response, endlessly repeating the same meaningless phrases towards some end that not even its designer can now recall? Is this what we've become? An army of twits echoing each other through programmed response, devoid of meaning, bereft of thought? It doesn't speak well for our future when our present sets itself on a race to the bottom, picking as the winner the one who can most stupify their thoughts to the formula prescribed to the masses.

The only way to validly judge how awesome a social networking site is is by how easy their name is befarted. A list from Greatest of All Time to The Worst:

2. Fartbook
