if it is the foron i am thinking u are referring to, it is the one foron with probably no core philosophy at all, just whatever will upset the most people the most (or a risible attempt at same, more often), anything heavy that can be used as a weapon, as they say -- certainly not a good general life philosophy either . . . and here i was thinking it could be a very delicate tweak on an uncommon, sophisticated ideology with a long, storied history . . . what the gun posts actually mean in aggregate are anybody's guess, and i really don't want to . . .
i got a kick out of the post bumping* a thread (because, u know, if u can't see something, it doesn't exist, man) to ostensibly lecture u about "netiquette"†, though . . . sort of like carving "stop vandalism!" into a wall . . .
* i really shouldn't have to remind people of this, but that is an abuse of network resources . . . maybe it's just the principle of the thing in these days of o c-1024 pipes and 5g and shit, but it also makes a mess of things; in summary, it's just vandalism . . .
† who came up with it anyways? mainly old richish white guys years ago -- not very democratic or progressive or inclusive or culturally sensitive, and certainly an impediment to cross-pollination of ideas, which, of course, is the point . . .
