There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

PD was briefly unreachable by my phone yesterday. I didn't freak out but I was deeply worried something had happened to it. A lot of my writings on here are not backed up anywhere else. I was struck by a vision of my life without PD. It was a much sadder life. If this is Stockholm Syndrome I don't want to be well!

Welcome back, Person I'm Only Half Certain I Remember Interacting With!

so i'm half wanting to vent and half wanting some help with this. There's a dude i know through my Rocky Horror troupe, and i swear this guy is one red hat away from being a goddamn Nazi. His posts are a constant stream of the kind of cringy edgelord shit that was funny in middle school. I finally had to talk to him about keeping his Nazi jokes out of our RH group chat(which is basically a bunch of Rocky horror peeps posting memes about cheese) and he started pouting about how he should be able to make nazi jokes wherever he wants, and how Nazis aren't really a threat to anyone because the left just CALLS everyone they don't like a Nazi, and then just withdrew and kept making his shit jokes elsewhere. I'm wondering if its worth fucking with this guy or just blocking him from my social media life. One of my friends is his ex, says that hes always like this and this is exactly why she holds him in disdain, but the energy and possible intergroup drama this might cause might not be worth the headache. Thoughts?

speaking as someone who doesn't have to hang out with him in any capacity, I say poke & provoke until allllll the true colors come out.

we have to stop letting assholes feel welcome in shared spaces

we have to stop ceding ground


I'll remind you that MANY Facebook groups (like most of the Discordian Societies and, to varying degree, the Robert Anton Wilson Fan group) went directly into the shitter in 2015. During this time, we watched ironic horribleness gradually transition into authentic horribleness. People said shitty things and then acted like any negative response was just special snowflake oversensitivity. Fuck all that noise and the horse it rode in on.

If he's not part of the troupe or social media group anymore, let him go.  You won't convince him.

If he is still part of the "shared space" as Cram says, then call him out whenever he does shitty things.

I think you should apologize for infringing on his freedom of expression and ask him to rejoin the group; that you just had a bad hysterical moment and were being intolerant.  :fnord:

Ok, but seriously now, you're asking the discordian choir, its always good to harass nazis if theres no imminent danger from it.

Fair enough. Who else wants a piece of this? i can only harass him so many hours of the day, plus i have a hunch he may have sockpuppets.
