I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: whereisian: 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.

And how is "being wrong about everything" a disqualifer for being on Fark?


I say, "The more the meanier!"

You're unpredictable and impractical and I'm fresh out of shivs.

You're in luck! Because now, if you respond in the next four minutes, this gleaming, professionally fashioned shiv made of finest high impact plastic can be yours for just four easy installments of $14.99. Yes, just $14.99! Imagine the feeling of owning you very own professionally fashioned shiv, forged from premium quality high impact plastic, for just four low low payments of $14.99. Don't delay. Act now. Operators are standing by. Here's how to order....


But - that's all?  I was prepared to wait?!

GWSuperfan: 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.


Yeah, I googled who she was.  I don't get why she is relevant to Fark?

And as I said, I don't have Twitter so I never USED Twitter, so I couldn't figure out HOW to navigate to the beginning of a Twitter conversation.

But since I see your name tagged I guess it's super important to you that this "celebrity" (I guess?) mentioned you

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 are worth your weight in empty whiskey bottles, thank you for your service over the years, son.

You literally just have to click the Boobies that comes up in the Twitter thread so it expands to the whole thread. I'm old as farking hell and even I figured this much out.

But, since it confuses you, here's the gist:

A psycho conspiracy theory nutjob made a comment about "antisocial media". "GWSuperFan" apparently pays enough attention to this psychotic idiot on Twitter, or some keywords she posted, to see her post and replies, tagging @fark.

Whatever idiot run's Fark's social media campaign on Twitter thinks "yes, let's tie fark.com to a nutjob who pushes wildly insane conspiracy theories created by Russian propagandists" and replies, dragging this site into her screwball world.

Here we are.
