Congrats. Is she a Republican? I hope she isn't after your money. Do you use a sling box? Which one?

how does that compare with the competition in your opinion?

I admit I was wondering how your basement was doing these days and it sounds like you didn't have to pump it out again which gives me a modicum of positive response. Your life change also appears positive on multiple levels. You might get smarter because of it.

Maybe perhaps. But then again, other forons who behave as such in a regular manner are still here. So unless Admin are being as blatantly partisan in regards to "fake news and propaganda" as you personally are then it must be something else that accounts for their absence.


Really, Penquin? Perhaps you're perusing different threads than me. I see some disagreements, but I don't see a lot of outright dishonesty from your political opponents. If I were to post a link to a ridiculous article claiming that 99% of gun violence and global warming was caused by Republicans, you'd have a pretty good argument. But I don't see that kind of propaganda here from regular forons.

I see cringeworthy anecdotal evidence that proves nothing at all on a regular basis, but the outright false information, easily refuted and resembling carefully orchestrated propaganda? That always seems to come from our resident conservatives.

I'm not going to say that you can't point to some left-wing propaganda you've seen in the past... I'm sure it exists, but I'd call it anomalous, in the grand scheme of things. Liberals tend to produce verifiable facts, conservatives respond with verifiable falsehoods.

You're welcome to prove me wrong. There's no shortage of material to peruse. Show me where Liberal Forons produced ridiculous conspiracy theories ala Barack Obama murdering people in a cocaine-fueled frenzy after engaging in gay sex. If that liberal exists, he or she deserves the ban hammer.

Mostly, I think you just like to be disagreeable. Which is why we get along so well.

I think Schwinner is Henry Vilas.

I don't like to see regulars exit, and I certainly hope my caustic personality doesn't drive people from TDPF, but I think first and foremost the Isthmus should be a news website. And it is. I wouldn't ever post a questionable rumor as fact, nor consider a solar panel manufacturer as a reliable source for the dangers of coal and oil consumption. I'm definitely left of center, but I'd rather be right than "toeing the line". Liars are liars, regardless of their political stripes.

I don't like political propaganda. If it's right-wing, it pisses me off. If it's left-wing it embarrasses me. I like to think my allies are making their arguments with facts, not cleverly crafted lies intended to trick people into believing horseshit.

I don't expect The Isthmus to devote valuable resources to fact-checking every foron's post, but I think that occasionally we get people on the left (Flambeau) and people on the right (The Gotch) who use The Isthmus to spread "fake news". I know some of you bristle at the notion of banning people who post unpopular opinions, but The Isthmus has no interest in offering a podium to liars and propagandists. It may very well be that your "opinion" is that Barack Obama engaged in cocaine-induced homosexual orgies and killed people who knew about it, but nothing you're posting is supported by actual FACTS. You're using The Daily Page Forum to spread verifiable lies, and The Isthmus has no duty to respect that.

I get it... liars provide fodder for good discussions, and assuming that their lies aren't accepted as truth by anyone, there's really no harm in the dissemination. But you can't really guarantee that the lies aren't accepted as truth, and a news organization has an interest, if not a duty, to remove posters who consistently use their website to spread lies. It's not about right and left, it's about right and wrong.

Let's be the good guys. Not just in heart, but in deed as well. Let's argue the facts. And let's recognize that opinions are not facts. It's not OK to simply have any opinion that you want. Facts matter.

He's never called me that. And I haven't been absent from this forum.
