The 16 best quotes about Discordians (taken from MysticWicks)
« on: February 04, 2008, 06:12:28 pm »
Hard work, getting all these, but it gives me a warm glow.  My comments in italics.

1. "I'm just sick of it. Every time I come to MW there's a new issue with you and a select group of Discordians. So you worship chaos, big fuging deal. Give it a rest already."

Try replacing Discordians with Wiccans and Chaos with Triple Goddess and let the accusations of persecution flood in. Also, hilariously, this was in reply to a post by TGGR parodying the views of select forum members, to a degree.

2. "Yeah, I have seen alot of it popping up on the boards. I also noticed that every time I see one [a Discordian], it seems to be laden with arguments and negativity. Something as simple as an introduction, turns into mayhem!! I'll pass on those threads and posts thank you, they take the enjoyment out of conversation. I have never seen as many arguments on the boards as I have since those posts have started. "

3. "We didn't set out to hurt Discordianism. We set out to rid our community of trolls. We hope our community will be a better place as a result."

90% of those "trolls" 'just happened' to be Discordians.

4. "Someone hacked into my ebay account. Loverly. Very mature. Guard your butt Ssanf, you've just painted a big old target on it."

Incidentally, none of us were behind the hacking.

5. "I think a couple of bad apples came in here, calling themselves Discordians (and I don't have any way to judge whether they really were or not) and they started baiting people and trying to cause more chaos than is strictly natural, and when the shit hit the fan they rallied some of the other Discordians around them because they were "being persecuted."


6. "Congratulations. This isn't the forum for Chaos. This is a sanctuary, not a factory."

Because Discordians...like factories? I don't get it.


7. "The most fatuous, manipulative, and venomous people to be found here are all of the discordian genre."

8. "A successful and a good discordian, is one who gets others angry, upset, and is skilled at mocking and belittling them.The better they are at it, the more they are respected by thier peers."

Partially true, but hardly the whole story (also, fixed for spelling and grammatical errors)
.

9. "A True Discordian does not spend all their time making sarcastic posts on internet forums. In fact, a majority of "Discordians" you see online are not really true Discordians, but nothing more than attention seekers."

Apparently reading the Principia once makes you an expert on what other people really believe too, at least going by the above poster.

10. "I've always, always regarded the Discordians as being people who chose to be Discordians because they can't be arsed to actually do any work to develop a relationship with a specific deity, they were too wishy-washy to choose just one path, and they just want to be a mishmash of everything and not have to work at learning about rituals or traditions or any such thing as that. "Oooh, I'm a Discordian! I can do whatever I want! Which means I can just SAY I'm a pagan but I never bother doing rituals or studying any kind of sacred texts or developing a relationship with deity, etc! I can go around and not be Christian, but I won't quite be anything else either because I just can't commit and I can't be ARSED to commit!"

Spoiled brats of the pagan world, I thought. I really don't have a lot of respect for Discordians. They just strike me as spiritually lazy."


Too hilarious to comment on.

11. "Just out of curiosity are any of you discordians raising or will raise your children in your beleif system?...I know silly question, of course you would, but with my experiences with Discordians and Chaos Mages lately I would be concerned for the child."

12. "mmm, it's like a troll breeding facility isn't it. Maybe there's an undergound complex like Area 51 where the genetically engineer them?"


Said in reference to EB&G forums

13. "In other words, Discordianism, like postmodernism, means never having to say your sorry."

14. "I'm starting to think discordian is just another word for annoying. It certainly doesn't seem to have any hallmarks of a consistent or coherent belief system."

15. "At least Satanists HAVE a worldview. After reading this thread, I'm convinced that discordians not only don't, but will actively mock anyone who does."

16. "Followers of Eris...I will not allow you to spread 'discord' in my forum just like I won't let Christians proselytize."


Because its practically the same thing, right?

Hmm, let's see, of all the kids in my daughter's preschool class, she was the only one whose parents DIDN'T have to attend a parent/teachers conference because they figured we'd just be bored hearing how smart and well-adjusted she is.  Quick, someone call DHHS!

I have not been back to mysticwics in a long time.
lets see how much things have changed...
Is that why you won't let it see you, why you can't bear the gaze? Because you've done terrible things.
Then there are the transgressions you never even knew you committed, those are the worst because those you can never forget, all you can do is suspect.

I like this. It's as if the poster bumped into the BIP concept and then backed away very quickly, hoping none of it rubbed off like wet paint.

What makes it so? Making it so is what makes it so.

fear of the foreign and unknown is a good motivator to draw out the "call the opposition psychotic" card.

I see it all the time when I try to book fire and glass shows... the venue owners always insist on making fire shows more dangerous by putting them outside and flat out refuse glass shows because they think I'm dumping a pile of glass on their floor (not wholly true as I put down a dropcloth first).

Mary: To feel. 'Cause you've never done it, you can never know it. But it's as vital as breath. And without it, without love, without anger, without sorrow, breath is just a clock... ticking.

You also see it when you reveal you are racist.

I find it hard to even lurk at MW.  I just saw a thread titled "signs that a spell worked" and nearly pissed myself I was laughing so hard.  True story.

These people actually take themselves seriously?
