Dear Sir,

Respondent unable to comply due to being called a Nazi (CAIN"T YEW TAKE A JOKE, HUR HUR HUR), gas lighted, called crazy, and then told to use admin stuff to make some unrelated dude miserable.  And then having the human stain that did this come back to the board.  Sort of like having Donald Trump come back to NYC when you thought he was safely ensconced in the presidential palace in Mar A Lago.

Respondent is waiting for Nigel to start one of her honeypot traps, where a simple idea of social justice is used as reason to screech hatred and abuse at anyone foolish enough to step inside.  This will happen as sure as the sun is coming up in the East, and sure as deat & taxes, someone will be fucking dumb enough to respond.

Respondent is also having a bit of a laugh at all the suckers lining up to welcome her toxic ass back.  Humans are stupid and never learn.

Venomously,
Doktor Howl

I am unafraid. There is nothing you can do to me that I have not already done to myself. That said... I tried this recipe. It sucked, I got a bunch of wires stuck in my mouth, I mean, it LOOKED delicious, but I forgot what I was baking. It was not edible. 1/10 will not bake again.

I might not agree with dok about a lot of shit, but I do respect their perspective, even if I proceed to shit on it. Sometimes I shit a bit too much, in hindsight, I feel bad, but eh, what can you do? You can't take that shit back, you fucking shit it out. Apologies don't really work, so all you can do is recognize your mistake, and try not to do it again.

It has been my observation that when long-term members of a forum return after an extended hiatus, to be widely welcomed back by other long-termers, they almost invariably don't stay long.  Once the first flush of nostalgia wears off, they discover that the reasons they originally left that forum are still in full effect.

Full disclosure.  We are.   :lulz:

And by "we" of course I mean "me".  Unlike certain manipulative sociopaths that could be mentioned, I am more than happy to speak for myself and only for myself.  And of course by that I mean "Nigel".

I won't even drag someone like Chelagoras for cheap laughs and some weird personal need to harm people when they are at low point in their lives.

I leave that to the professional abusive types.  I'll just stay in my lane over here and heave bricks.

Yeah, pretty much. I was feeling super lonely and nostalgic, and maybe kinda wanting to recall happier days, so I came here. But of course, you can never really go back again.

Shush squirel-boy. Also, Howl, stop picking on Nigel, I'm trying to get into that honeypot.

Just wait a little while.  There will be a thread inviting civil discussion about a sensitive topic.  Upon walking in the door, she'll shit all over you, and then explain why colonizing an uninhabited planet is morally the same as the Westward expansion of the USA and the resulting genocide that entailed.  Because sand on Mars matters as much as 10 million+ murders.

Then she'll ask for a thread split titled in such a way as to make you look like something you would scrape off your shoe.  When that doesn't go her way, mean old authoritarian Howl will of course be the next Tamerlane.  I am more than okay with that.

You know, a year or so after the fact, I went back and looked at the last 18 months of posts that went back and forth, just to see if I was being unreasonable.  There is a clear pattern...When you are feeling very good or very bad, you get slapped by Nigel. 

She is basically the crunchie version of a drunken Kentucky abuser.  You get slapped enough to make you want to modify your behavior to avoid the slap, even though you know it's coming anyway.

I used to wonder how people got into the condition where they would bail out the spouse that beat them.  This has all been very instructive.  Illuminating, even.

The forum has only recently started showing the seeds of new life and has had some interesting discussions of late, but it is still relatively quiet around here.
A big row is likely to pour water over that. If you are going to have at it, just be aware of that that is the likely outcome.

The recipe for activity is just people shitposting, tbh. You show them that, hey, somebody actually cares enough to shitpost, and they'll be like, "Well, shitposting isn't my thing, but I will post a few things and join in on discussion". Nobody wants to post to a dead forum, so let's get some life flowing through this motherfucker. Thread necro some dumb shit with some random chaotic shit. That'll end up in somebody's inbox and they'll be like, "Wait, wtf?!"

People get upset in a number of communities because I just, relentlessly shitpost, but honestly, if I turn my back and walk away? Nobody's going to say shit, and it's going to wither and die. I don't want that. Somebody has to take the hit though, and it may as well be me. I hate to sound like I'm taking credit for shit I don't really deserve, but I've seen this enough to know that this is how it works. Activity is created by, actually doing shit... so you post some crap you KNOW people are going to love to shit on, sure you look like an idiot for doing so, but you got people talking. Sure, people shit on you, but you can just, not let it get to you and keep on doing it. Eventually they'll maybe realize what you're doing. Maybe they, too, will embrace the art of the shitpost. Or maybe you'll just get banned because some short-sighted fuck has no clue what actually works. That has happened, with predictable results.

You simply cannot take yourself seriously. You facilitate other people actually posting better crap than you could by shoving some cringe-worthy shit out there, people need some cringe, it's like, a vitamin or some shit. All that said, you folks actually rock, and  I don't want to see you fighting eachother. I don't care that some of you are horrible fuckwads, that's just your charm. Now, can we please show the OP the respect it deserves and not take our lame slap-fighting competition here? I like the spirit of the original post. You ate all the really bad folks, there's not a lot left to rage at.

EDIT: There's actually a really fun game on Steam, it's called, "Drunken Wrestlers 2", and it is just, terribad, hillariously bad. It's redeeming factor is that it relies on ragdoll physics and hilarious shit like randomly punching people so hard their torso falls off.

The big row has always been a part of PD, not because of tradition but because of the various types of people that come to PD.

1: I wasnít here for whatever caused this whole thing, and basic digging came up blank, or else Iím missing the obvious. Either way, I donít have any reason to back a horse in this race. Iím going to let things play out, and make my decisions on the basis of the here and now. I am prepared to eat shit and admit to wrongness at a momentís notice, but Iíll wait till I see something myself.

For now, there are (for me) relevant subjects of interest caught in the crossfire. And so, for now, I will do things that keep me able to potentially learn from those subjects. This may appear to be picking sides, but Iím just a sucker for knowledge, especially knowledge pertinent to my life, and Iím not about to insert myself into a dog fight about it.


2: It is absolutely correct that this place collects people who need to poke each other in the eye. I donít really know what else to say on the matter, if someone hasnít noticed that yet then I donít know what the fuck forum theyíve been hiding their head in.

This, for the record, isnít making a value judgement on this particular case of poking, because sometimes itís a good natured jest, sometimes its trying to get stuff out of your eye and sometimes itís attempts to maim and rip. As I canít see it, I donít get a meaningful opinion on which it was.


3: My only caveat is that Iíd rather not navigate a minefield with the risk of people throwing bottles and dead dogs and shit at the mines next to me. Whatever the interpretation of What I Am Doing is, Iím not going to be shitting on anyone as a proxy for anyone else. Iím just out here looking at stuff. If I get blown up, let me earn it personally, all I ask.


4: I still donít get the OP, and Iíve been actively trying. :sad:

People involved in The Industryô often have silly confidentiality statements in their email signatures.  (One of my co-workers recently sent me an email with such a signature, which triggered this).  Examples:  http://www.goldmark.org/jeff/stupid-disclaimers/list.html .

These statements are not only unenforceable, but doubly stupid when posted in a public forum.

But let's pretend that my incompetence in accidentally sending you a confidential email somehow compels you to cooperate.  Since I'm really concerned about the security of the message, I couldn't trust that your simply deleting it would leave no trace on your computer.  Better to have you destroy your computer entirely.  Peppermint is one of the most dangerous substances known.

After that, it sort of goes off the rails.

I could go on and on about hunny pie and Brexit, but sadly I have a life to attend to.  I really did think something I forgot to post, but thought better of it.  Sleep is important to me.  Sorry I couldn't be more forum :)

Respondent is also having a bit of a laugh at all the suckers lining up to welcome her toxic ass back.  Humans are stupid and never learn.

It has been my observation that when long-term members of a forum return after an extended hiatus, to be widely welcomed back by other long-termers, they almost invariably don't stay long.  Once the first flush of nostalgia wears off, they discover that the reasons they originally left that forum are still in full effect.

I am unsure I want to change if that means tolerating abuse every time someone is drunk or just has a bad day.  Or just plain feels mean.
