Meade being Meade

Postby jjoyce » Sun Apr 22, 2012 10:45 am

Blogger (Citizen) Dave Cieslewicz recently wrote about his experiences flying United Airlines. I found it funny and it definitely conveyed the experience many of us have had flying the decreasingly friendly skies.

This morning, our guy L. Meade -- always willing to hold us all to his hefty standards of new media usage -- weighed in with the following bit of wisdom.

Poor baby. Aren't you glad you didn't also dream you were on United Airlines Flights 175 and 93?


As his guy Scott Walker might say, while the rest of us were in church on Sunday, that's what Meade was up to.

Don't feed the trolls (unless you're the forum administrator)

Jason, I wish you took enough pride in this site to fumigate it regularly for trolls, instead of just complaining about them.

Meade is simply pointing out the obvious flaws in the Democratic Party that only a true moderate would be able to identify, namely that Democrats don't care about people who die in terrorist attacks. I'm sure he didn't mean it as an insult, nor in an effort to elicit an angry reaction. It was simply an astute observation that was intended to enlighten those of us wearing our liberal blinders.

I don't get to read many of Meade's posts but I thank you for reprinting it, as I'd also thank Henry for reprinting Meade's observation that Democrats are the party of sexism, as evidenced by our support for Tom Barrett over Kathleen Falk. I have to admit that I hadn't even considered that angle.

I have hefty standards of new media usage, JJoyce? What are they? Do they allow for my trolling forums for which I am, myself, the administrator?

Meade, I'm unfamiliar with your work as a message board administrator. To be fair, I'm unfamiliar with your work as anything other than a video camera operator and whatever it is you call what you do here (when the rest of us are at church or work, as your guy Scott Walker would put it).

Please advise.

Also, I fail to see how pointing out and amplifying a stain you left on the internet as a way of discrediting your claims of being a "moderate" constitutes trolling. Stuff like this is your bread and butter.

Jason, please tell me you are not as obtuse and literal and humorless as you seem to pretend to be.

When I said "Do they allow for my trolling forums for which I am, myself, the administrator?" did you honestly think I was referring to anyone other than you?

I 'member in 6th grade we had something called a "slam book", a spiral notebook with each kid's name was written at the top of a page. The slam book was furtively passed around the class, and everybody wrote what they thought about each kid at top of page. (Sort of an early facebook?)

Something about this thread reminded me of that slam book.
