Bot v2.38beta: almejita: AppleOptionEsc: 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.

Prime example why I keep trolls in purple instead of ignore. I would have missed this gem.

In what world is Mike a troll?

The world idiots made when an obvious joke = troll.

The internet makes all terms lose meaning eventually.


Well. He isn't a meme lord. When all your posts are edgelord Jones, what is he, but a troll?

Welcome to Fark.

Things to know

1.) Hockey \ Olympic threads are the best.
2.) The weekly gaming thread is a paradise of harmony as long as no one brings up Star Citizen
3.) Feeling that you're better than the common man/woman is only $5 a month
4.) Stay out of the POL tab and you'll be fine.

A "day boi" but the taxonomic label may be outdated by now.

My opinion is based on Mike posting and many replies being expansions of "oh shiat, wad up?"

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

Conservatives are afraid of other people,
liberals are afraid of resource limits.
History has show everybody will be wrong.
Still on balance I am more hopeful for the liberal approach as I imagine that a well educated independently thinking people are more adaptable to a new random threat than an army of loyal collectivist followers.

This thread is the first I've heard of her, but from the descriptions, all the "Ooh, we don't want the likes of her in the Politics Tab" handwringing sounds incredibly naive. If she hasn't been around all along, there's more than plenty of others supplying the same type of noise.

Not necessarily. She's like Glen Greenwald -- she has her own brand of insanity that isn't very well represented on Fark. In fact, part of the reason why you haven't heard of her is because her views just aren't supported here very much.

evilsofa: arrogantbastich: Who?

Back in the old days of Media Bias Chart 2.0 (they are up to 6.0 now), her Patribotics blog took up residence in the lower left corner:
[Fark user image 850x701]

I'm making dinner so I can't check right now if she's even on version 6.0 of the chart.


Which was bizarre, because she was HRC voters' fave nutcase back then.  Leftists were all "WAT" with her business.

I thought we had every flavor of "Democrats good, Republicans bad" here, ranging from the well-considered and thoughtful to the wild-eyed and frothing "Fire never melted steel" level of wingnut howling. What's so unusual about her screeds that they wouldn't fit in on a site that gleefully celebrated Herman Cain's death as a good start? Is she also an anti-vaxxer or a coronavirus conspiracy nut or something?
