flappy not an aggressively tedious dullard so I have no problem distinguishing him.

Terry Micawber (Tom D.), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 20:36 (two years ago) link

I took it as "he brings up 9/11 and how it affected him as frequently as Roger Waters brings up WWII and how it affected him"

Yup, I remember this and this was pretty much the way that it was intended, although I didn't actually know that you lived so close to the twin towers when I wrote that (I've only found that out, like, right this second) - I just assumed that you were more than a touch obsessed with 9/11 and didn't bother to look into why that was. Now that I know why, it's understandable that you'd want to talk about it so much and now feel my comments were unwarranted and incredibly mean.

i was unaware that flappy allegedly 'brings up 9/11 and how it affected him frequently' -- i had him tagged as 'knows too much about smashing pumpkins'

I sometimes get my flappy birds, flopsons and frogbs confused, one of them is a YMO stan.

Terry Micawber (Tom D.), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:17 (two years ago) link

Like, I don't really give much of a shit if people get upset over my posting style or my opinions on music, but I really don't want to be upsetting people over their very real offline issues.

Gholdfish Killah (Turrican), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:22 (two years ago) link

i appreciate the apology, turrican. i don't think i talk about it that much on here but i can see how one could misconstrue w/o context i guess

and i know way too much about the smashing pumpkins

flappy bird, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:22 (two years ago) link

and by know too much i mean i saw 3 shows with Mike Byrne on drums

ok back to regularly scheduled programming

flappy bird, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:23 (two years ago) link

lol

mookieproof, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:25 (two years ago) link

lol silby

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:26 (two years ago) link

Anyhow - flappy, as much as we may have had our conflicts over music from time to time (I will never understand your Animal Collective fixation, for one), I apologise for the Roger Waters comment. It was highly insensitive and I wouldn't have made the comment in the first place if I'd truly known your situation.

Gholdfish Killah (Turrican), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:27 (two years ago) link

thank you

flappy bird, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:28 (two years ago) link

fp'ing you both for this disgusting display of maturity

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:29 (two years ago) link

😜

flappy bird, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:30 (two years ago) link

Like, I don't really give much of a shit if people get upset over my posting style

well maybe you should care. or something.

brimstead, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:48 (two years ago) link

hey, it's never really upset anybody

Pope Urban the Legend (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 21:51 (two years ago) link

Everyone's entitled to their opinion. Once.

nashwan, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 22:14 (two years ago) link

should be a thread where the 51'd can make one last post with full knowledge of who 51'd them

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 22:16 (two years ago) link

or maybe the 51'd can post it into any thread. but the 51'd will know that it will surely be the last post before banning. no time limit.

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 22:18 (two years ago) link

doubling back to the auto-killfiling anyone you FP, couldn't disagree more. SB being downgraded to FP, whatever its flaws, makes it about the post not the poster. good posters can make terrible posts though it is comparatively rare I guess

Doctor Casino, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 23:14 (two years ago) link

Sensible words from Sheldon Casino.

Terry Micawber (Tom D.), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 23:19 (two years ago) link

My beautiful thread all ruined by a disgusting display of human kindness ;_;

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 23:24 (two years ago) link

Lol that old chestnut about SB changing when it was renamed

Gary Synaesthesia (darraghmac), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 23:38 (two years ago) link

Turrican kept on reiterating a phrase that ties into struggles I've had and family have had outside of here and that really bothered me.

But I still got time for him and think flappy is awesome

Week of Wonders (Ross), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 23:49 (two years ago) link

lol @ everyone being expected to know every posters personal history.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:04 (two years ago) link

(I remain clueless as to who flappy is, or turrican for that matter but eh ILM is an alien desert to me)

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:08 (two years ago) link

I dunno about 31 or whatever guys but can we acknowledge that something needs to happen with ilx because....I mean...it's fucking awful now

Gary Synaesthesia (darraghmac), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:16 (two years ago) link

Or I mean don't u think?

Gary Synaesthesia (darraghmac), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:16 (two years ago) link

we need to recruit new posters

Treeship, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:17 (two years ago) link

Well yes that is part of it yes

Gary Synaesthesia (darraghmac), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:17 (two years ago) link

also ban donald trump

Treeship, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:18 (two years ago) link

If its fucking awful now, you're still here why exactly?

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:19 (two years ago) link

Boredom sheer boredom

Gary Synaesthesia (darraghmac), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:20 (two years ago) link

i don't think it's awful.

deems stays in this relationship out of love. he's irish and sentimental.

Treeship, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:20 (two years ago) link

I like the threads I post to.

nashwan, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 00:22 (two years ago) link

xp no true irishman

mh, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 02:14 (two years ago) link

I don’t want to autokillfile anyone I fp, I want to auto fp anyone I killfile, because I don’t want to have to see their shite in order to fp them.

But there’s really just one in particular right now who everyone else is naming so maybe we’ll get that one pretty soon. Worse than geir I think

droit au butt (Euler), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 20:59 (two years ago) link

the will's not there I think. if it was gonna happen it would have happened

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 21:19 (two years ago) link

Unban Dom

"the fgti incident?" (Whiney G. Weingarten), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 21:21 (two years ago) link

I missed having this discussion. I see everybody has really reflected on their positions and is in listening mode now, well done all, for a while I thought the anti-banning crowd were rigid ideologues who'd wholly immunized themselves against discourse

she carries a torch. two torches, actually (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 22:02 (two years ago) link

the next best thing to fp would be if everyone just ignored the shitposts leaving a trail of droppings to step around instead of “engaging “ them which just gets you too covered in shit

droit au butt (Euler), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 22:23 (two years ago) link

I also must have disengaged enough from the general life of the board as to have NO idea why people are saying it's so awful. I'm here several times a day I feel like it's pretty ok? Easy enough to avoid shitty threads?

she carries a torch. two torches, actually (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 22:28 (two years ago) link

The shitposts > the mediocre posts it's like when Michelle Pfeiffer is the teacher and you know by the end it's the real stinker of a pupil you'll be rooting for

Gary Synaesthesia (darraghmac), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 22:39 (two years ago) link

yeah I have no complaints really, existing fp process seems to be working fine.

and this place doesn't seem nearly as hostile/full of unrepentant assholes as it used to be 10+ years ago

xp

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 22:40 (two years ago) link

Well look let's not go there

Gary Synaesthesia (darraghmac), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 22:47 (two years ago) link

we’re just more subtly about how we phrase things

mh, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 22:56 (two years ago) link

the word "shitpost" is one of the worst things about the present era and its use should be met with Stalinesque vigor

she carries a torch. two torches, actually (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Wednesday, 1 November 2017 23:03 (two years ago) link

Your horse, it is high

brimstead, Wednesday, 1 November 2017 23:08 (two years ago) link

I thought this thread was mostly ppl wondering why the thread was made in the first place

Plus turrican bashing
