I feel bad for Ned Flanders

Postby BobbyB » Sun Feb 11, 2018 9:57 am

He used to be the worst poster around here, and it wasn't close. Now he's been knocked off his throne, and won't even put up a fight. He must be exhausted from defending us all from the "ChiComs and the Ruskies" with his peashooter. Thanks for that, by the way, Flanders!

but how many centre-right people of any type are there here? if ned flanders did not exist, we would most assuredly have to invent him . . .

Ned is more entertaining than Corny. Roy is too.

There is nothing center about Ned.

they appear to represent two or three different species of conservatism as well, which in a forum is helpful . . .

Disagree. They are three slightly different faces of the same animal. It is helpful in that one can identify the different methods they use to convey exactly the same message, and demonstrate how useless it is to use facts, logic, and reason with them but other than that, I cannot see how it helps at all.

Ah yes: when the left is bankrupt of any ideas, or sane response, the comeback is always to call names or belittle.

Such a small mind in a bubble of socialism.

if they are not there, it makes it a left-of-centre echo chamber, which isn't useful or helpful at all .

also, those three appear to actually hold the opinion in question, rather than throw anything out there to pick a fight with a maximal percentage of the board users, and put on a minstrel show at the expense of various groups of people . . .

@Cadfael;

Lefties like you's using facts, logic, and reasoning?

Now THAT'S rich? You's wouldn't be able to string together a coherent sentence, much less anything remotely resembling an actual thought without first clicking on the moronic Lefty talking points you have auto-delivered.

I cannot see how it helps at all.


Of course you can't, you ONLY see what passes through your reality-filtering Industrial-Strength-Hardened-Weapons-Grade-Thickened Ideological Blinders.

That's no problem, it provides comic (if cringeworthy) relief to those of us that occupy a fact-based reality.

What IS a problem is that you're blissfully unaware while waxing intellectual with spittle-flecked, stupidity-laced pap that you highfreakin'lariously see as significant.

Ah Lefty; so MUCH hypocrisy, so little time!

And was immune to facts and prone to wild conspiracy theories.

Jfh wrote in long run-on paragraphs nobody could read.

C writes in tiny sound-bite sentences you can read, but they don't make any sense. It's like trying to read a transcript of a speech by DT.

Anyway, I say these two posters are/were not the same person.

I have come to the point I skip all of it. This means I often skip entire forum topics, but if admin doesn't care how many clicks they lose, I sure don't. We've already lost a lot of participants and it's due to quality control issues.

At the same time, compared with other internet boards and discussions, the Forum has earned its longevity award, and that's not easy. I wish 'em well even as I slowly fade from sight.

Who do you think I was calling names or belittling? I thought I was complimenting you and Ned. And I was just making comparisons with no name calling.
