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


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.

EdgeRunner: Rhymes With Silver: EdgeRunner: Sure, she sounds bonkers, but too bonkers for Fark? Probably not. She wouldn't be popular for pooh-poohing the conspiracy theory that the Russians manipulated the last election (which isn't the most politically expedient thing to keep pushing anyway, since the Democrats are currently insisting that Trump's concern trolling over mail-in ballots is tantamount to treason since it casts doubt on the security and reliability of the US voting system; they can't have it both ways), but she'd likely still find plenty of receptive listeners here as long as she didn't commit a serious party foul like outing herself as a Bernie supporter.

What ways are we having it? Trump broke at least the norms of our democracy if not election law by openly asking Russia for help in 2016. Within 24 hrs they obliged. He is currently sowing seeds of doubt in our upcoming election to whatever end. He was an asshole then and he's an asshole now. It's the same way. We are having it one way.

Your "one way" is saying it's okay to cast doubt on the election if your candidate doesn't win, but it's not cool when the other side does it. Wikileaks and Facebook posts didn't sway the election, Hillary's endless email scandal and bad campaigning did. She still probably would have won without that incredibly damaging last minute discovery of even more improperly stored classified documents on Weiner's laptop, so unless you're buying into the theory that Putin put them there and Comey was his willing stooge, it's a tiresome excuse to keep pointing at Russia. And yes, pointing at Russia and saying they manipulated the vote is absolutely casting doubt on the process. Just like blaming the recounts for W's first term and tampered-with Diebold machines for his second. Casting doubt on the process has been an ongoing tradition for decades, so while Trump is absolutely an asshole, it's no good claiming he's doing something completely unheard of by pitching his own reasons for why ...



So your argument boils down to: Sure he's terrible, but her emails. Got it.

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.

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.


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.

It's a lot like a very angry Disney ride, where the same old automatons go through the same old motions and recite the same old dialogue, year in and year out, no matter what's actually happening in the world outside.

I don't want to do a deep dive on her nonsense but she belongs with the Matt Taibbi "I'm a liberal who hates liberals" camp. That side is convinced the Russia investigation and interference in our elections is all made up nonsense, either because they don't believe Russia is competent enough to pull something like that off, or because they think the Democrats hate Trump so much that they manufactured this scandal to take him down.

Despite this she accuses Vladimir Putin of doing a lot of things including murdering Andrew Breitbart, planting docs on Anthony Weiner's computer, and that half of Israel and Silicon Valley are Russian moles (including Zuckerberg, Peter Thiel, etc.). And she complains daily that the Russians are spying on her.

Rhymes With Silver: EdgeRunner: Sure, she sounds bonkers, but too bonkers for Fark? Probably not. She wouldn't be popular for pooh-poohing the conspiracy theory that the Russians manipulated the last election (which isn't the most politically expedient thing to keep pushing anyway, since the Democrats are currently insisting that Trump's concern trolling over mail-in ballots is tantamount to treason since it casts doubt on the security and reliability of the US voting system; they can't have it both ways), but she'd likely still find plenty of receptive listeners here as long as she didn't commit a serious party foul like outing herself as a Bernie supporter.

What ways are we having it? Trump broke at least the norms of our democracy if not election law by openly asking Russia for help in 2016. Within 24 hrs they obliged. He is currently sowing seeds of doubt in our upcoming election to whatever end. He was an asshole then and he's an asshole now. It's the same way. We are having it one way.


Your "one way" is saying it's okay to cast doubt on the election if your candidate doesn't win, but it's not cool when the other side does it. Wikileaks and Facebook posts didn't sway the election, Hillary's endless email scandal and bad campaigning did. She still probably would have won without that incredibly damaging last minute discovery of even more improperly stored classified documents on Weiner's laptop, so unless you're buying into the theory that Putin put them there and Comey was his willing stooge, it's a tiresome excuse to keep pointing at Russia. And yes, pointing at Russia and saying they manipulated the vote is absolutely casting doubt on the process. Just like blaming the recounts for W's first term and tampered-with Diebold machines for his second. Casting doubt on the process has been an ongoing tradition for decades, so while Trump is absolutely an asshole, it's no good claiming he's doing something completely unheard of by pitching his own reasons for why the electorial process obviously must be broken if he loses (but just as obviously worked with perfect precision when he won, of course). Trump isn't smart enough to have come up with the "blame the process" approach on his own. He's just taking what he's heard before and putting his own self-serving spin on it.

Of course, it's also important to acknowledge that the system isn't impervious to tampering, and there's some merit to many of the doubts. But if the system is truly broken, that means it's broken no matter who wins and it's never an honest outcome. Neither team ever wants to follow that line of reasoning too far, and they'd prefer that you don't either.

Was she ever namedropped? I really don't recall ever hearing of this person till now, though admittedly I don't spend a lot of time in the PolTab, which tends to just endlessly and boringly repeat the same rigid and unchanging positions. It's a lot like a very angry Disney ride, where the same old automatons go through the same old motions and recite the same old dialogue, year in and year out, no matter what's actually happening in the world outside.

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.


There is some legitimate vigorous discussion that happens here but I think they were referring to the types of posters that supposedly don't exist on this site, the kind who get their name from fictional creatures that like to hide under bridges & wait for their chance to ruin the day for people who are just minding their own business.

I have no doubt that there are people on here who are ready to debate in good faith, it's the ones who perform the equivalent of taking a steaming dump in the living room during a rad house party (then play ignorant to their own actions) that this site could do without.

SansNeural: palelizard: 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.

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.
