I object to the idea that people with high post counts who are in the "inner circle" (what the fuck is that? Is that what we named the hemorrhoids we got from sitting in front of the computer posting so much?) don't get ripped into as much or as hard. If anything, people with high post counts get ripped into more, and harder, and survive it because the only reason they've been able to stick around this horrible place for long enough to get such a high postcount is because they have titanium ovaries and a ten-foot cock.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”

Yeah it seems that the High Level HAZMAT Grade Ripping Into happens between people with high post counts who've been here a while.

Maybe the people complaining about this WANT to be told nasty things by people they get along with and respect.

Also, personally, I enjoy it when you tell me I'm fucking stupid, Nigel. I don't get enough of that IRL because I'm surrounded by morons.

Alty and 000 have a point here, but so does Dalekk. Personally I've learned a lot of useful and inspiring stuff from this community, but it seems to me that people have to be very careful with what they post unless they are in the inner circle or otherwise already have a few oldfag friends to defend them if they make a single "mistake" in the way they think.
Either that, or they have to have a good sense of humor about themselves and the things they think they believe.

Also, supposing I'm in the "inner circle", I still gotta be damn careful what I post because when I post dumb shit (really dumb shit) people will shit all over me! It's more like an "inner sphincter", in that regard.

Stop dragging facts into a perfectly good rant about the tyrannical "oldfags".

By the way, +10,000 points to Herring Martinique for yet another vicious homophobic slur!

Sorry, should've thought twice before using that. :weary: But is "oldfag" even a pejorative? I don't think it really applies any negative effects to the LGBT people, or anyone else for that matter. Not native speaker, though. (Instead, bisexual myself. I know, perhaps A. I'm just saying I'm bi just because I'm young and it's in these days etcetc or B. um, a bisexual people can still be homophobic, or :?. But yeah, using /b/ slang is probably still a crime vicious enough, so for that part yuor hating is entirely justified.)

We dumped on someone from Finland fairly recently, IIRC, but Finns deserve it, though it explains why Hernia Martinique got all wrapped around the axle.
Do I get to call you racist now? Even if you didn't mean it in that way?
(Yes, I know you hate racists. As much as I hate homophobes. As much as we all hate bigots of all kind. Do you want to keep debating this?)


Also, come on. I was not "ranting" about tyrannical oldspags. This doesn't bother me that much in the end.
Now that Dalekk started this thread, I just felt like putting my 1˝ cents in - I pointed out how things seemed to me, not fiercely defending every idiot noob in this place ever or plotting a pinealist revolution or anything. I didn't suggest we should all eternally crap candy cotton unicorns and flowers and try not to hurt each other, and I'm not saying older users won't get shat on if they say something stupid. It's just that noobs very rarely get second chances after that single mistake, while older users are auto-forgiven (okay, there may still be some srs cockfighting between individuals, but at least the whole community won't stop listening to them and keep reminding everyone of the Stupid Shit Once Posted, lest someone be nice to them even if they're clearly Stupid, forever).

In general terms, often the person who speaks seems a lot more important than what is said. This shows in the amount of feedback and support the new users receive, which in turn discourages them from contributing more of their own stuff.
THE MORALE WILL CONTINUE UNTIL DISCORDIANS IMPROVE

Ask me anything. Or else.

No.  You are wrong.  There is no such thing as second chances on here.  The ones who got these mythical "second chances" you speak of are the ones who just decided to suck it up and keep posting anyway.  That's how it works.

The ones who run off with their their tales between their legs run away and cry while smoking Parliament cigarettes, then eventually stumble onto prescription meds, get hooked, fall into porn, and wake up three years later in Juarez married to a transexual Salazorian midget hooker with a hare lip and two glass eyes.  And those are the lucky ones.

How many more times do we have to have this fucking conversation? :boring:

23!

To the OP, I'm not sure that we are really here to tell people how to think or what they should believe in.  The idea has always been TFY,S.  It's that you should think for yourself, not that we are going to tell you, prescriptively, what to think when you reach that point.  Now, certainly, if someone puts up an idea or belief that seems a little batty to some of the posters, it will be challenged.  There is no judge or jury here that ultimately decides who is right or wrong.  Even if you do have 5 or 6 old timers shouting against a couple newer folks, ultimately, there is no decision about who is right or wrong. 

The conclusion of the argument is simply where people stop shouting. 

Ha!  See what I did there?

I object to this topic for the following reasons:

1. Money isn't made out of paper; it's made out of cotton.

2. The 57 on Heinz ketchup bottle represents the varieties of pickle the company once had.

4. Ketchup was sold in the 1830s as medicine.

5. Your stomach produces a new layer of mucus every two weeks otherwise it would digest itself.

6. During the chariot scene in 'Ben Hur' a small red car can be seen in the distance.

I thought the 57 was just made up?

I'd just like to add that this thread has inspired me to shit no less than 5 pounds of bile onto each and every new person.

Thanks, Dalekk, I was starting to slip.

Do I count as a new person? If I do, can I get my five pounds of bile in 1 lb packages? I've been sort of at a loss as to what I should get people for the holidays. I think this would work nicely for at least five of them.

No.  You should PM me your address, and I will PERSONALLY come shit in your Thanksgiving turkey.  I shall in fact eat vindaloo and Sister Fracture's amazing tomato/garlic/onion/cheese soup the day before, and I can pretty much guarantee that you'll get at LEAST your fair share, that is to say 5 pounds.

You have no idea how tempted I am to give you my address and pay for the trip so you can follow through with that. Cardinal Pizza Deliverance is mightily peeved at several shit-for-brains in the greater CPD delivery area. A pound of TGRR-poo on top of their entitlement pizzas would just about make my day.

Last I checked, "Think For Yourself" doesn't mean "Don't Criticize Other People".

We argue here.  It's what we do.  And we've argued the Original PD ideas scores of times.

Fact of the matter is, most of the time the noobs haven't really thought things through; so when they're asked to defend themselves, they can't do it.


But even that isn't germaine to the OP, because as far as I can tell, we haven't had a noob come in talking about Discordian Catma for months. 

Dalekk, do you have a recent example of what you're referring to?

"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before
