RT has gone off the rails

Moment when it became like cool to like commercial pop music?

This thread is obviously a mess, but while whiney is just doing time-honored disruption I think RT is right on the verge of personally abusive and should be at least temp-banned.

Hilarious continued and desperate attempt at suppressing non poptimism opinion. I was posting good posts, distilling, and attempting serious debate on the most prescient topic of our generation, and people who clearly WERE NOT BIAS AT ALL to the topic decided to disrupt and spam, it's obvious.

No surprise, you yourself who were one of the ones trying to disrupt, pollute and spam and belittle from the start, now trying to back up your friends who are beginning to look ridiculous and bloated like a stray fish lowtide. And asking for bans. Sad. Really sad.

I'm starting to think you mean distilling literally

i wld just like to point out that i have been otm in this thread

genuinely can't tell whether a revenant 2006-era me, a troll, or both, which I suppose is impressive

Of imago's two identified possibilities, the kinder one is the first and the more likely to be correct, imo. Then again, 2006-era imago was banned more than once, iirc, as a form of gentle correction to certain impulsive tendencies he was sometimes unable to control. Raccoon Tanuki seems quite salvageable for participation in civil society. ILX will be good for him.

if anything ilx is much gentler now, which could work either way

imago, Friday, 21 November 2014 02:33 (seven years ago) link

nah -- raccoon tanuki is an exercise in (impressively relentless) provocation and nothing more

A temp ban is a relatively cheap and simple remedy for RT's overexcitability, such as posting a link to the same nyt article about 20 times across multiple threads in one day. This sort of ham-fisted ur-triumphalism is not a permabanning offense, but a temp ban is more of a rolled-up newspaper to the nose of a puppy than a nuclear option. I would recommend it in this case. And it won't be his last temp ban, if my hunch is correct.

Aimless, what is your position on the pernicious rise of poptimism?
