Enough is enough (on Flambeau)

Postby Shorty » Wed Aug 23, 2017 11:13 am

As others have said, he:

-starts threads on Trump only
-some of his threads could be posts in existing threads instead
-sometimes doesn't cite sources
-when he does cite sources, they can be wrong links, misquotes, or mixed in with his own words

You're so done with him that you've started a thread dedicated to him?

Yes, but my title was more clever than the others. But what are your thoughts on him? That is the topic here. Or is this just another one of your drive-by attacks?

Yes...

Very odd.

Certainly a matter of opinion. Does spelling count?

Shorty wrote:But what are your thoughts on him?

I have few, because I tend to not read his posts. You should try that some time.

Shorty wrote:That is the topic here.

Maybe your title should have clarified that, instead of trying to be clever.

Um, "attacks"? Sounds vicious. Are you gonna be okay?

I think he's a she. Not sure why but something from back when she started gave me that impression.

That's about all I think.

Same here. It's a little extra scrolling, which can be a little annoying, but, you know, first world problems. I don't have any idea what gender this person is.

Just a little extra scrolling you say?

i finally did something I should've done long ago.
I blocked ff.
I almost never block anyone. The only other time I blocked a poster was in the old version of the forum, and that poster threatened me with violence (Chuck Shick). Odd that a poster who used his real name would threaten someone who is anonymous, but drugs and alcohol do strange things to a brain.

The constant spamming is bad enough. Completely making stuff up and repeating it is bad enough. The trouble is, ff is exactly the same sort of person who helped a certain WI senator, the asshole from Appleton, thrive. Exactly the same sort of ethics, except the Appleton asshole was smarter, and the most media savvy politician of that time.

Yeah. You don't actually read that stuff, do you?

I at least have to read the titles and author to find out how much scrolling I have to do, and lately that's been more than a little bit. It's become more like hunting for tidbits of non-fflam posts in amongst the flotsam and jetsam.

That is the beauty of blocking someone. Massive delusional rants become one line.

I hate that it is called a Foe list, but whatever. I try to have sympathy for the mentally ill, and certain posters seem detached from reality.
