seriously, trolling people who are happy in an RIP thread is just as lame as trolling people who are sad in some other RIP thread.

want to know what this is about though

how funny would it be if after exerting all that self-control a few months ago and not starting the super awesome clusterfucky poll to end all clusterfucky polls i ended up getting FP'd from some light casual trolling on the Thatcher dead thread?

So a guy goes into a thread, announces that he's going to troll, proceeds to troll and you somehow managed to humour him.

tsrobodo, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 10:25 (five years ago) Permalink

As far as I know the thread wasn't about Mordy at all until a load of people who didn't understand what he was doing started jumping on him, and it's not about Mordy now.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 10:42 (five years ago) Permalink

I dont see how him announcing he's trolling gives him any kind of pass, frankly. It is irritating even more because it is overt!

nakh shared this quote w/ me about thatcher:

There had never been a cabinet with so many Jewish men - me, Michael Howard, Leon Brittan. I wondered why, and the conclusion I came to is not that she had a thing for Jews, but that she was one of those rare politicians without the faintest whiff of antisemitism.

xp mordy- i'm not saying they're un-academic (although both suffer from a lack of sources) they just don't qualitatively resemble what i think of as theory in any way

it's interesting how the philosophical underpinning of a field can influence public perception. like economists seem like idiots because they're positivist so they make bold pronouncements that are completely wrong some time, while theorists seem like they're constantly evading attributing a fixed meaning to anything they write because they're poststructuralist or whatever

flopson, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:10 (three years ago) Permalink

the good thing about anti-capitalism is that [almost] everyone has a personal stake in it as a system. for the vast majority of ppl any given identity politics is not to have a personal stake for them, at best they can be allies.

it's funny how you start having a discussion about whatever and before you know you're having theoretical debates about the priority of capitalism. it's not so much that anyone needs but it's already there and at work.
