i knew i wasn't the only one to suspect that; it passes occam's razor with flying colours too . . .

@gozer;

the alternative to ned flanders, cornelius gotchberg, roy, and a few others apt to post less often is i d p f turning into an echo chamber


AKA: Tolerance!

What I've found is that Lefties (most, not all) have permanently affixed weapons-grade-thickened-industrial-strength-hardened ideological blinders whose sole purpose is to filter out Inconvenient Truth, which is to say, anything that lies outside the realm of pre-approved selections made solely from the Lefty World View Cafeteria.

They're incapable, unwilling, or just too damn heels-dug-in pig-headed, to concede that everyone doesn't see the world as they do.

When confronted with the Founding Principle of Dissent, two things happen: they default to ''that is de facto wrong,'' and they feel threatened.

Think I'm wrong? Real time gaslit examples will emerge once a couple of them roll off their futons, pull on their Hempen Homespun & Birkenstocks, stick pins in their President Trump/Governor Walker dolls, and are enjoying their first cup of locally sourced, GREEN, organic, humanely dispatched, fair trade/free range Wheat Grass Tea later this a.m.

One already in the can? An unsolicited response to your's truly; a clearly disturbing and perfect example of why keyboards ought have factory-installed breathalyzers, the talented @pjbogart 03/18/2018 Sun Mar 18, 2018 11:34 pm:

I honestly would rather drink from an ACTUAL douchebag than have a beer with you, Gotch. I'm not sure who you're addressing, but being a cancerous lesion on the testicle of a rabid honey badger, perhaps you should just save the keystrokes...


Mercy me! doesn't he/she think I have feelings?

As fate would have it, that was his/her last post. Banned, self-exiled because the stark realization of his/her manifest imbecility, voluntarily committed for some sorely needed substance abuse rehab, or succumbed to stupidly emptying the contents from "an ACTUAL douchebag.'' Heck, it's anyone's guess.

Anywho, what does TDPF stand for?

Under that name, at least. There is a 52.5252 (repeating, of course) percent chance that he has at least one other login that is regularly used.

This site used to be called The Daily Page (dailypage.com or thedailypage.com - Can't recall which right now). TDPF = The Daily Page Forum

Bonus answer: users are sometimes referred to as "forons". I beleive it was Blunt Rapture who first coined that word but don't hold me to that one. (Those words that is. I'd hold&hug Blunt if he was still around)

Why? If you step out of the leftist mindset here, you get slapped pretty good. Lots of the people her know each other in real life and one wouldn't want any uncomfortable encounters at the co-op.

The other point is, without members like Ned, Gotch and Roy, this place is a morgue. DOA. A grey echo-chamber.

yeah, there are a lot of i d p f readers i know from them having contacted me offline and via e-mail. instant message, and so forth (i wish more of them posted rather than just lurk, but the negativity and passive aggressive folks may have an impact) and all these years when approached by one i say "fantastic! go find three others" which they often do, so i get oodles of feedback, often encouraging and always straightforward, a lot of it actually being requests for rants and the like . . . a motley crew, a joyous and numerous one, which is why i never get fazed by the haters and the would-be hall monitors . . . there are a lot more of the motley crew and they cover much of the political spectrum . . . .

Although I can't agree with your last sentence, I do agree the more the merrier. Unfortunately, there are many here who are much too fragile and brittle to deal with those who disagree with them. It actually causes them emotional pain. And they all happen to be lefties.

The left hand washes the right hand... Clinton cleaned-up Reagan's massive deficit spending and some of his wealth redistribution to-the-top. Similar to Obama's efforts to reverse W's theft from people who work to the lazy takers at the top.

If it wasn't for the "lefties," the righties toilets would be inoperable by now.

o, not all centre-left people are fragile snowflakes . . . my first principle for this kind of thing is that those who cannot understand the opposite opinion cannot understand their own, and that is why i come to forums: to see what others think . . . i already know what i think and why, and there are the other places for collaborating with like-minded people such as within political organisations . . . it is an oversimplification, but in american political argot i am often described as a socialist (whereas my politics are much more similar to those of angela merkel, to cite one example) but centre-right people don't drive me up the wall. i don't like some of the things conservatives do in office, but that is why we have elections and open debate . . . .

Save this for a political thread. We're celebrating the departure of an unhinged troll.

I wasn't aware that you're leaving. Do you have a #gofuckyourself page I can donate too?
