Wow, some backstory would be nice. What's the lead-up to this? I mean, not everyone here follows this kind of shiat that closely...


Not a lot of backstory. She said we needed "anti-social media" and I commented that Fark already has that market cornered. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

rummonkey: WTFDYW: If she gets on here, fark is fu*ked.

Thanks Drew

If she gets on here she will be on the ignore list of 80% of the people here. The people who don't have her on the ignore list are already on everybody else's ignore list. It will be a self-correcting problem.


Well there's yer problem.

The Twitters say "Fark is a community-generated humor site and news aggregator" but some of you's think it's a political dogfight site.

Is she a paper target moving toward sane people as they tear her apart with bullets of logic? Because, honestly, I don't know who she is.

Mike_LowELL: I've been to Fark a couple of times and they're pretty much the worst of the lot.

There was a particular and notable instance where I pointed out that there are very bad people on both sides.  I was trying to compromise in our polarized political climate.  But suddenly and without warning, the posters begin screaming at me, telling me how I am a bad person, simply for pointing out that the Axis powers had legitimate grievances of their own.

I explained that the Weimar Republic was stabbed in the back, but before I could point out the group of individuals responsible for this metaphorical atrocity, I received a message from one of the moderators to "please stop trolling, Mike, I'll buy you another box of Ding Dongs if you do, sweetykins", and it was in this moment that I realized my mom was such a sweet person and she was really looking out for me.

I stopped posting for about six hours and then started right back, knew my mother would cave like a house of cards, I must have eaten like three boxes of Zingers and HoHos on that day, goddamn, literally feeding the troll, if you catch my drift, lol.


You sound fat.

She's a batshiat self-proclaimed UK Moderate who led Fark Moderates™ on wild goose chases with all kinds of re.. stupid conspiracy theories. They happily RTed her for months and her links got posted all across FB, and I'm sure we had more than a few greenlites around here based on some absolute nuttery she came up with, because it made said ™ feel better in their tummies because HRC managed to lose to an assclown.

Yep. It's a crying shame that #TheResistance was so in a huff about avenging HRC that they boosted Mensch for way, way too long.

I hate to do the hipster thing, but she was a bullshiatter of high enough caliber that it is simultaneously worth stating and no great accomplishment that I knew she was full of crap ages before most other people did.

If only there were some way to go back to the beginning of a twitter conversation. Or if there were some way to view a person's profile on Twitter. Or if there were some magic machine- an engine that could facilitate searching -that would enable you to discover basic facts about people who are in the public sphere.

Someone should probably work on inventing that stuff.
 
2020-08-01 10:00:50 PM  
I have her mentally categorized as 'the twitter person that people keep mentioning for some reason, and is wrong about everything'. I now also know she's British, which is nice.
