Another stinker link?

That story sounds like it would end with the kind of punchline that my grandpa would have loved

What the farking fark is going on with the American Thinker greens today? I'm still downvoting this shiat and never clicking them. Maybe if people do the same the modmins will stop greening this shiat for whatever payoff they are getting from the morans at American Thinker in exchange for page hits.
 
2012-10-09 11:48:57 AM
Just stop it with the Stinker links will ya!
 
2012-10-09 11:48:58 AM
So in addition to Freeper Friday, we now get Tuesdays in the Stinker? At least it is obvious who is paying for green lights.

Ok, F*ck this noise. I'm back to Reddit
 
2012-10-09 11:50:10 AM
another one? I understand wanting to troll for clicks but this is just getting stupid
 
2012-10-09 11:50:39 AM
No, AT, you will not get my click. You will get my ridicule.

/ridicule, I say
 
2012-10-09 11:51:01 AM
Do we really need three greenlights to the Stinker on a daily basis? And how much money are they paying Drew? Because I'm willing to kick in a few bucks to never see another one.

Why would they stop?

American Thinker, Townhall, etc are guaranteed to have a minimum of thirty or forty comments. This means page hits and ad revenue. If you really want to "do something" completely ignore the threads.

Agreed. Fark is getting ridiculous and completely ignoring it's users for the sake of a few trolls. Bye bye Drew.

Wow, 3 American Stinker links and a Townhall link......This week is off to a good start.

It does seem like there is quite a clog of shiat today. Maybe Fark needs a plumber.

They threw in a pajamas media for good measure, too.

The Farm powers to be don't give a rats ass about how many times the link is clicked. Its all about the comments. AT articles bring out the comments and refreshes.

It's going to be one of those days, isn't it
 
2012-10-09 11:55:00 AM
It could have been a black Hispanic Democrat subby (I know it wasn't in this case though). Those things are not mutually exclusive, you know?
 
2012-10-09 11:55:42 AM
Really? You want to bring up gerrymandering and selective districting? Good luck with that.
 
2012-10-09 11:58:30 AM
Well I'm definitely going to vote Romney now. Or something.

Oh, look. Another trolltastic link from the Stinker. Now all we need is tenpoundsofderp to shiat all over the place. It's the best part of waking up.

It may be time to start using tampermonkey to remove American Thinker articles.

Welp, guess there's no reason to Fark today. See you all tomorrow!

Someone might have missed that, since he's the lightest skinned person in the picture (except the white guy that's almost entirely blocked out down the hall).
 
2012-10-09 12:08:40 PM
IDK, if I were a mod, I'd probably be partial to greenlighting AT links as well.

Not only are they good for business since they infallibly generate page hits, but the reactions on both sides are thoroughly amusing. My fellow libs go into blind, visceral rage while the cons bend over backwards trying to defend whatever stupid shiat the "Thinker" is pushing now.

Don't like an endless stream of American Thinker greens? Pay $5 a month. Or browse Reddit, where you get a lot of the same stuff a day earlier.

That picture of the President fist bumping the cleaner guy makes me wonder. Would President Romney even see the guy let alone give him knuckles? I think not, and that just adds to my list on why we should not vote for him.
While I might not agree with everything President Obama does, he is clearly a man of the people. Very personable and cool.

Thanks for sharing that picture Epoch_Zero, it helped restore some of my faith in humanity.

Why do liberals such as yourself cry so much about them? Stop threadjacking. If it offends you so much stop farking clicking the link.

Better idea. Go to kos or du so you never have to see a countering view again.

I have never seen a group of people so offended when selecting information through selection bias. The fark left whines more about conservative opinion than a sorority girl taking basic algebra. At some point grow up and step out of your little cognitive bubble. Stop proving Haidt right over and over and over.

Imagine all the bans if the moderators actually enforced threadjacking. No liberals would be left.
 
2012-10-09 12:11:04 PM
Everyone take a deep breath. Scroll down through the past few weeks of the Politics tab - I'm sure it is all pretty close to even which team gets the most links.

It will be ok. Please don't be sad.
 
2012-10-09 12:13:42 PM
It is hilarious to see Fark Libs whine and gnash their teeth about conservative opinion interrupting the echo chamber. Made my morning.
 
2012-10-09 12:15:44 PM
Three 'Thinker' greens and it looks like fark's mobile ads haven been hacked with virus scams.

Run this site with some dignity, Drew.

I do believe there's a correlation between FARK and AT. I've noticed that there's a bit of a pattern between popular topics on FARK and what American Thinker addresses. Case in point, when the veracity of Rasmussen polling became more widely discussed here in the politics tab, American Thinker auspiciously put up a post about the incontrovertible accuracy of Rasmussen. They seem to feed off each other and it's hard to think that this is not intentional.

I don't know if AT is a genuinely conservative site or if it serves as a talking point dissemination vehicle for the left though. It's just so mind-numbingly goddamn stupid.
 
2012-10-09 12:19:32 PM
Troll headlines don't generally bother me but these sh*t "politics" links are just so devoid of content and insight that could in any conceivable way lead into remotely interesting discussion. To the point of they seem practically designed to preclude that possibility. Whatever, it's election season; suppose that's the order of the day.

I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and go with "bronzer" from that pic.

Besides, if the Republicans were a bunch of shiat for brains, gutless, insecure racist farks, then there would be all kinds of mainstream racist humor put out there by Republican racist pieces of shiat.

Nah. The Admins have basically confirmed that they greenlight Right wing links because (1) more of them get submitted, (2) the headlines are better written or more intriguing, (3) the topic is usually troll bait, (4) the right wing threads get more comments than the left wing ones, and (5) the Admins don't necessarily support the topic at hand, so they want to see us rip it to shreds.

For every troll shiatting right-wing thread, like 90% of the comments are people mocking the link. The headlines may be right-wing, but the commenter don't appear to be.

I think the lesson the GOP should take away is that Hispanic people don't vote, so it's ok to attack them relentlessly.

I can agree with all of that. The "right-leaning" submissions are mostly just set up for mocking. Not that they shouldn't be mocked.

The past 10 years have not been good for the GOP.
