am now looking forward to sarahell's hard-hitting exposé of plenty of current posters and their fat-shaming and objectifying pasts they don't want you to see. let the chips fall where they may.

uh, okay? i mean, that wasn't on my agenda? Considering you've been posting forever, I dunno why I would need to tell you something you already know? Anyone else who has only been posting for a few years or somehow confined themselves to ILM or sports boards and wasn't here for "lol fat ppl" and "is this chick something i would put my dick in y or n" posts and threads -- they can use the pretty well designed search function.

Obviously I don't find that behavior an unforgivable sin and hate everyone who engaged in it -- just, it was a thing people used to do, and it was kinda gross

We need a separate thread for this. Otherwise we might kill the "can we kill this thread?" thread. btw, KBP should have been 51'd twelve years ago for that!

lol a thread for ILX History of Fat-Shaming and Objectifying Women would be a really great idea ...

sarahell, Friday, 13 September 2019 03:21 (two months ago) link

It would make the job of future researchers that much easier.

A is for (Aimless), Friday, 13 September 2019 03:23 (two months ago) link

yeah, if they have access to "thread dump" or wherever deleted threads go ...

sarahell, Friday, 13 September 2019 03:24 (two months ago) link

I should join some message board that’s mostly edgy 22 year olds in 2019, and then when they become civil adults in twelve years I could post things like “oh, we we were pretty gross back then!”

but then one of them will figure out I was nearly 40 at the time

perusing a right to be fat? gives an interesting glimpse into historic ilx discourse on weight issues. I'm not sure how many of the participants still post to ilx, due to the many login name changes over more than a decade.

I remember a significant amount of fat-shaming and fat-phobia on various ILTMI threads ... and there are plenty more ... and yeah, ILM has a lot of "lol fat male music nerds" stuff on it, and that is also gross, but the stuff directed at women is the most embarrassing/awful

mea culpa ilx is bad because it doesnt note that the ilx mea culpad for was good compared to the ilx mea culpaing

theRZA the JZA and the NDB (darraghmac), Friday, 13 September 2019 19:33 (two months ago) link

so, deems, you're saying that ilx, if not already in the gutter dripping with bean juice from a discarded can, is headed there in a handbasket?

A is for (Aimless), Friday, 13 September 2019 19:45 (two months ago) link

ilx used to be better but I'm pretty sure it's not because people were posting stuff about "fat chicks" and calling each other "fags" or whatnot, which seems to be your contention

Seany's too Dyche to mention (jim in vancouver), Friday, 13 September 2019 19:46 (two months ago) link

not exactly that, certainly, but the bathwater/baby ratio is questionable somewhere in the "ugh how awful everything was" jim

aimless you seem to be in a very negative spiral of ilx comments and i hope all is well

no one is saying "how awful everything" was though. they're saying "this specific aspect of old ilx was bad". this is certainly no worse than whatever it is you do whenever anyone makes that kind of point, which is to make a bit of a sophistic argument against that sentiment which is always vague

why dyou think 'ilx used to be better', leaving specific concerns about the thread in question aside

theRZA the JZA and the NDB (darraghmac), Friday, 13 September 2019 19:59 (two months ago) link

it was better when there were more voices expressing lively opinions & individual perspectives, to be sure. however, many of the now-absent voices were encouraged to leave BY the fat jokes & fag-calling. many others have left for their own IRL reasons, not because of a more polite atmosphere. it’s a furphy to conclude that ILX would be better now if we still had three funny assholes and 12 boring assholes, whether or not we still had a hundred interesting & smart ppl who have also gone.

dom used to post

Whiney G. Weingarten, Friday, 13 September 2019 20:01 (two months ago) link

i was gonna say its possibly a question for a separate, non-leading thread

the answer, imo & tbrr, would be in the users answering that it was better now

a lot of good posters don't post here anymore or hardly ever post. thinking about heavyweights like max read or nabisco, not dom passantino - who could be funny, but ultimately was legitimately abusive to a number of posters. this is why ilx isn't as good

Seany's too Dyche to mention (jim in vancouver), Friday, 13 September 2019 20:05 (two months ago) link

there are also plenty of places on the web were you can engage in problematic badinage if that takes your fancy

it's different

i like you as a poster and you don't post objectionable stuff

Seany's too Dyche to mention (jim in vancouver), Friday, 13 September 2019 20:18 (two months ago) link

i just disagree with you

Seany's too Dyche to mention (jim in vancouver), Friday, 13 September 2019 20:18 (two months ago) link

no one is saying "how awful everything" was though. they're saying "this specific aspect of old ilx was bad".

I thought I made it pretty clear. Even Dom and some of the other problematic posters (e.g. Cankles) had some classic threads where they weren't shitheads.

sarahell, Friday, 13 September 2019 20:23 (two months ago) link

And we're definitely not going to reach any consensus over who were the best posters who are now sadly missed.

I wouldn’t flippantly make a request to delete or lock a thread, but this is foul (and repulsive to see at the top of ILM): anyone got a jewtube link to that McDonalds ad with Os Mutantes in it?
