morbs, you know I don't engage in attacking you just for your views. I understand where you're coming from and respect it. but I'd far prefer to hear your opinions expressed in your own words. Posting one or two perrin tweets every freaking day is beyond tiresome. Anyone who wants to follow perrin on twitter can probably figure out how to do it. you don't have to import him to ilx wholesale. if you haven't closed the sale by now, it's because no one is buying.

Morbs has been posting Dennis Perrin tweets (and , pre-Twitter, blog posts) since 2006. While I am no Perrin fan and would like very much to never see his tweets, they are now part of the very fabric of ilx. Removing them could have unintended future consequences for the site. Consequences that we are incapable of fully understanding from our limited perspective.

Fixed.

Perrin is Morbs' sockpuppet. I imagine Perrin sitting on his lap egging him on to post yet another tweet, evil high pitched grin and all. I'm not unsympathetic to the fact that we all have our flaws tbh.

Le Bateau Ivre, Friday, 17 January 2020 12:10 (five months ago) link

“dominated” is a weird thing when half those embeds are primary sources for breaking news...plus more often than not if you write anything longer than a paragraph you’re not going to get huge amounts of back and forth. Personally the only tweets I’d proscribe are those of a certain awful French freelance journalist AF has a soft spot for.

I don't get the hate, he 95% sez the same stuff as Chapo. better on trad comedy.

1) he is occasionally m/l accurate, on some of those occasions slightly mordant, is never even slightly funny

2) ppl post chapo stuff in the chapo thread and nobody has any problem with this

3) if he’s good on trad comedy and you are posting his tweets on a thread about greek culture from 300-400 years BCE then probably nobody has any problem with this either? I don’t read that thread though

4) there is a dedicated thread for Dennis Perrin tweets, which most ppl who are bored by Perrin tweets in unrelated threads might look at occasionally if you posted Perrin tweets in it, with genuine open curiosity. as Aimless says, people who know you are more interested in your own thoughts being added to an ongoing conversation than the oblique opinings of some guy who wrote a biography of some other guy, once, 25 years ago.

5) lol there is no more reliable indicator of Morbz posting in a thread within the hour than Morbz quitting that thread forever

don't care didn't ask still clappin (sic), Friday, 17 January 2020 13:48 (five months ago) link

I honestly don't care about the presence of Perrin tweets one way or another. They're just another expression of ol' Morbsy's beloved 'I'm not touching you you can't get mad I'm not touching you you can't get mad I'm not touching you you can'tUHHHH WHY DID YOU HIT ME I'M TELLING ON YOU AND I HATE YOU FOREVER!' routine.

the sentiments in Perrin tweets are identical to the ones voiced by Morbz, so we'll get this stuff one way or another

I actually kind of see them in a similar light! Three pieces, stuck together over time and developed a certain aesthetic and musical language that was unique to themselves (that's the only reason to care about a rock band now imo), both grew and changed over time but maintained their identity.
