Subject: RE: BS: Garbage dump for responding to idiots
From: Gervase

Kat, my dear,
There are still music threads - silver threads among the crap or whatever - and at least half the BS threads aren't too bad. Just treat the others with the contempt they deserve, and rely on the rest of us to have the gumption to winnow the wheat from the chaff.
I have to confess, however, that I find myself feeling increasingly left out because I HAVEN'T been flamed; I mean, what's wrong with me? Moonchild, you, the list goes ever on; almost everyone else here just has to draw breath and some sad wanker begrudges them the oxygen they're taking in.
Listen, what does a chap have to say here to get some serious insultments? Or is it that to have some sad sod pick on you, you have to be demonstrably female and therefore fair game to the arseholes (who probably wouldn't have the bottle to return a bagel if it was crawling with weevils)? So, maybe it's time I fessed up: I'm a 30-something woman with deeply-felt convictions, commonly-held doubts about my past life and a willingness to empathise with others. I've also got a 38DD chest, my father owns a brewery and I understand the offside trap.
C'mon, anonymous guys - throw some night-soil at me!
Sorry, end of rant (yet again), but it IS beginning to piss me off how so many "Guests" are posting crap aimed at people I actually like for no particular reason other than to make a rather pathetic noise. Is there some form of cyber-Tourette's Syndrome operating here?
"Never before in the...has so much shit been thrown by so many eejits at so few," to paraphrase Winston Spencer McStilton Cheeswright III.

kat ... i mulled over that jennifer and brad thread for quite a while before I added the first post. then sorcha added hers. I sent her a message telling her I thought it was bogus and felt like a trout for having added the first one. We're getting pretty good at these things, aren't we?

If we're not careful, though, we'll be wearing 32-A's in a matter of months.

Kendall has a similar thread and his feelings are hurt because everyone likes mine better. Make sure you add something to his. We don't want him getting his voice back and being too sad to sing.
I have to confess. I didn't know the wedding thread was bogus until it was pointed out to me. And once again Spaw et al succeeded in turning it on its ass.

RANT ON W/OBSCENITY so close yer ear or eyes if ya don't want to read the scorch:

I must be an old Mudcatter by now because more and more I find myself echoing the laments of those who came before me, where are all the music threads? What? Another thread on some innocous, childish bit of bullshit? And, it's not even really just music, because they are there, but anythign of good intent that requires half a brain to think about and comment on!

I mean, what the fuck is going on around here that thinking individuals actual rise to the bait of a wedding thread for celebrities obviously started by a gawddamn son-of-a-twisted-dirt-hog's-busted-snout asshole trying to show its displeasure and jealousy at our paying attention to Jen and Mike and their wonderful news?

Most of what I see are much worse than anything we had a few months ago and IMO, some of what people bitched about back then, i.e. healing threads, would be a welcome relief from the boring shit which makes up a lackluster line up right now.

Balance...it's all out of whack. RANT OFF

BTW, SINSULL: I quite LIKE this thread. I can keep from posting to ilk such as I mentioned and come over here to get it off my chest, so to speak. Excellent idea. THANKS!

Kendall,
I explained my take on this in another thread. This particular Guest is unable to get Moon's attention any other way. He is "sticking her pigtails in the ink well" hoping we will all think that he hates her. And also quietly screaming "Look at me, Moonie! I'm here." Childish and cruel. Also laughably ridiculous to all but the Moonchild who has ink in her hair. Ignore him and he will either grow up or go away. Meantime, let's continue to help Moonie get the ink out.

I thought you might be interested in this quote from Big Mick on the Mudcat Clique thread. "We do not have cliques here. What we have is a variant on the opposite. We have people who seek to stop others from having free discussion with anyone who chooses to take part. We also have people who seek to rename spirited discussion to alienating others."

Sins, excellent way to repsond and not. Thank you. Thanks also for this thread because I need to VENT! There is a certain someone who keeps going after me and a few tohers ehre and there in the threads. Well that seems ot have died down a bit, but NOW, she has started a thread about teh prisoner releases in Ireland! AS IF WE NEED TO STIR THAT POT ,AGAIN!! After all of the recent bullshit of Conrad Blaney #1 Asshole and the contentious threads he had going, we do not need another volatile discussion on this issue, IMO, esp, when the initial post in done in an inflammaroty manner, as are most of that person's postings.

So, while it doesn't attack me, personally, I am asking everyone to please do not respond to the PIRA thread, please let it die.

Thanks,

kat

My preference would be to see the person attacked add ONE simple post: "I choose to ignore this. Please support me in ignoring it" End of thread. The sooner it goes to the bottom and disappears, the better.
The current method of turning a negative to a positive still (and this is my opinion, not gospel) gives the flamer an opportunity to see his "name in lights"; it still gives him credibility and a forum.

Shambles, maybe I didn't make my position clear. By turning it around on them, I mean taking their negative remark and changing the meaning to a positive one, such as what has been happening with Guest Lyndon LaRouche's threads, or with Catspaw48. I've noticed that the trolls have so far gotten bored and walked away. Yes, letting the threads die is the ultimate solution, though it's hard to resist doing the "turn it around" thing and have a little fun with them.

If the original complaint is too much shit, if you pile shit on top of shit ALL you will have is shit. Which is exactly what our 'guests' want. That and attention, which is all that such a course of action will give them.

Why not just try and start the positive stuff anyway, in another thread, ignore the 'guests' and let their threads die? They will then go away.

The majority of people already ignore the shit and those that throw it, please don't reward their patience by inflicting yet more shit on them.

Sinsull, I can confirm what Kendall said about his statement: "I dont care what they say about you Sinsull, you're ok in my book!" In Maine it really is a term of affection and approval. I use it all the time.

In general I think we have something we cannot fix because there is no way to get at the problem. I don't know who has hurt Rick but it sounds like it was one of those unkindest cuts, i.e., coming from a "friend". Still, Rick, there are others who have been your friends and who are still sticking up for you. I always enjoyed your sense of humor as I lurked through the threads and would hate to see any of the 'catters change their ways because of a disruptive outside influence.

Also, I came out of lurk mode because I wanted to get to know you all and be accepted as part of this community. I'm going to be royally ticked off if it dissolves or changes radically just as I start to get involved.

I think we need to keep our heads and our sense of humor ready at hand. When someone gets hurt by something like this we need to be ready to rally round the injured party.

And Gervase, I'm with SailorDan. When you step outside I'm there by your side too.

With a whole load of non-music threads, maybe some redirection may be needed. So here is a song which may or may not be deemed apppropriate for this thread - Neil Innes' "How Sweet to be an Idiot" (words lifted from www.neilinnes.org)

How sweet to be an idiot As harmless as a cloud Too small to hide the sun Almost poking fun At the warm but insecure untidy crowd

How sweet to be an idiot And dip my brain in joy Children laughing at my back With no fear of attack As much retaliation as a toy How sweet to be an idiot How sweet

I tiptoe down the street Smile at everyone I meet But suddenly a scream smashes through my dream Fee fi fo fum, I smell the blood of an asylum Blood of an asylum? But mother, I'm playing so beautifully! Ha ha! Listen! Ha ha! Fee fi fo fum, I smell the blood of an asylum Hey you! You're such a pedant! You got as much brain as a dead ant! As much imagination as a caravan site!

But I still love you, still love you, oo-oo-oo-oo-oo, how swee-ee-eet to be an idiot

How sweet

How sweeeeeeeeeeee - *t*

How-ow-ow sweeeet

In this thread on Illiteracy everyone is saying how bad illiteracy is. But after reading these two threads, Kendall has piles and Big Mick plays a D chord I think maybe not enough people are illiterate. It sure would be nice if GUEST: Lyndon Larouche couldn't read or write.

I would not flame a newbie, after all I am quite new to the cat myself. When I first came here I requested a set of Lyrics and Chords to a song that I was trying to learn for the banjo.

My request was promptly answered by 3 people within a 2 hour time frame. I was most appreciative. The "Guest" items I referred to as idiots were the 3 of the four directly above my post. The fourth of course being Bill D whom signs in as himself as I do.

Maybe the use of the word idiot equating to the title Guest is improper and offensive to you or some others. I therefore offer my apologies to those offended by the inappropriate correlation. The apology DOES NOT extend to the &@^#$@#@^@&@*#&#^#&^#& who make smart remarks and only use the title "Guest". Actually I didnt want to use my Navy Language as a description of what I really meant. Again My apologies.

Nice Post Gervase, when you step outside I would like to stand Next to you.

Sailor Dan, a lot of the no-name attached GUESTs are compulsively posting, self appointed critics, but it's not worth accidentally flaming a newbie asking a question for lyrics to assume they all are. I don't think it's worth wrongly deciding that someone meant something they didn't simply because there's no name up there. I still think the words should be more important than the name or lack of a name.

I don't have any respect for people who toss their cookies because they know what they're doing is wrong, and do it anyway. A lack of respect for them translates to "who cares" when they type some sort of childish insult. I'm imagining the "Aren't you the clever clogs" as a bit of whiney, snooty commentary by that Angelica brat in "Rugrats." I never figured out why those other kids wanted to play with her at all.

How about "brat," Kendall?

I didn't think I'd ever get this reactionary, but I can now see the point of some of the arguments in the membership-only thread.
Sure, the Digitrad and the forum would be open to all, but couldn't guests have read-only access?
Personally I cannot conceive of any point at which I'd want to post anonymously. Gervase is my name, and if I think someone's a wanker, I'll call them so with my head above the parapet. If someone hasn't got the balls to post under their own name, they souldn't have the right to flame and troll anonymously. In my book the word "Guest" comes with its own connotations - like respect, courtesy and the need sometimes to bite you're tongue when someone is being an arsehole?
The Mudcat is a big place, and getting bigger by the day. I can't even begin to think how many people use this site, many as guests, others as lurkers (if you're out there, Dominic, speak up!) and perhaps a minority as members.
It would be a miracle if all of those people found everyone else a wonderfully fluffy, huggable human being. This is a community, for Christ's sake, and it'll have its share of village idiots, half-wits fuckwits, bigots and the odd drunken bore who seems to have become part of the bar.
If any of them start to iritate you, just walk away and find a more congenial part of the cafe ('Spaw, of course, can have a letter from matron excusing him 'walk away duties' - he's big enough and decent enough to be able to defuse things face to face).
Yes, it takes courage to walk away in the face of an injury, but you'll be stronger for it - and it really pisses off the bullies of this world.
Anyway, how do you think passing trade would react if they looked through the window of the Mudcat Cafe and saw nothing but fights going on. (Shit, that cappucino just missed my head - cut it out!)
Sorry about the ran t. Please speak after the high moral tone.

This is a nice place - don't fuck it up. And if anyone wants to make something of it, I'll see them outside.... :-)
