And 3 News Flashes!

Smackledorfer: LiberalConservative: Lady J: This thread is jumping about all over the place. Did we out a trollski?

Odd. Just tried to respond to a post and Fark went weird saying it did not exist and may have been removed. Seemed pretty innocent. Something odd going on. Some nice person (not sure if polite to out them) gave me TF too (1st time that has ever happened). I'm having a weird Fark day.

A new troll popped up last year (spring I believe) that had over 10 submissions a day in his first two weeks. Every thread he was in had a nearly immediate moderator response to anyone calling him out for trolling, being an alt, or anything similar. I got warned that posting a response with his account creation date and number of submissions, was trolling and had my posts deleted, even ones that simply provided factual disagreement with the poster in question.

After a couple weeks of the more active farkers consistently calling the account out, it went back to fairly inactive, but still popped up once every few weeks.  It's submission rate slowed to a crawl.

Draw the conclusions as you see fit.


That was an actual new user(cant remember the login but remember the incident). He had been following fark for a while and finally signed up. He wrote excellent, funny headlines that mostly went to the sports and main tabs. As a poster he was right of center and got involved on poltab so everyone jumped on him every time he posted and started bringing up his account age and submissions. So he pretty much quit posting and then his submissions began to dwindle. Heavy submitters are a different sort of cat who get off on greenlights and normally don't post much. This dude did and got chased off for it. So... there it is

Hi All! Newbie here...

I just wanted to pop in and say a proper Hello. I've been reading Fark since Drew was a virgin, but just signed up today.

Wait... what? Drew is still a...

Dammit!

Let me rephrase that. I've been reading Fark for over a decade and adore this place. Much like myself, Fark has aged well. I'll mostly play in the Politics tab, so this seems the appropriate place to introduce myself.

Hi!

The Republicans (and one DINO) just confirmed a bellowing rapist to the Supreme Court.

Fark, I hate this timeline.

Welcome to those of you from the "attorney uses the n-word a lot" thread. Dugitmanand I will try to answer your questions here so that we don't jack the thread any further.

So, why did you use "Ivanaka" in that headline? It is a spirited debate among the modmins currently.

/it's possible there is money riding on the answer

Just a juvenile disrespect thing

So yeah.

1. Sanders

Still the only candidate we know can beat Trump

2. Warren
Awesome. My 2nd choice, let's see how she tackles misogyny and other assorted Republican/Russian bullshiat

3. Harris

Strong, forceful, determined.
Not happy with her plan to keep private insurance, but hey. It might be the only practical thing to do while we move towards single payer

Booker should stay in the Senate
Buttigieg is primed for a decent Cabinet Position as is Inslee

Yang could well run again in 2024 when his ideas are more mainstream--which they will be.
With automation, we need to demand a dividend from the savings huge corporations get from using it.

That's it. Everyone else needs to clear the stage.

Oh and Biden. Incoherent, out of touch, he needs to be knocked down to 4th place and eventually bow out of the race altogether.

testing for 2020, using the last of my 2016 standings

CURRENT STANDINGS
DEMOCRATS (2383 to clinch): Clinton 1759 + 59 (a), Sanders 1408 + 111 (a)

REPUBLICANS (1237 to clinch): Trump 1140, Cruz 551, Rubio 173, Kasich 159, Others 16 (b), Unpledged 109, Uncommitted 21. Remaining pledged delegates: 303.

These estimates may differ as media sources differ. My policy is to allocate all delegates and not hold any "uncalled" at the end of a night, and not being a professional I may be slow to update after the fact. Only pledged delegates are included.
