Hope you’re well, Fred.

Fwiw I certainly agree that this place has the potential to exponentially increase one’s misery through mere exposure (beware, lurkers) but it is also capable of achieving the opposite effect (ILM in particular is not toxic at all right now and hasn’t been for a long time). I’m at a point where I mostly just avoid dipping into controversies that don’t even concern me directly anyway.

ILM and ILB are OK. That’s not what people are talking about.

without getting into shit i hope things are good Fred and you will be missed

Shakey is always a good guy to have around on ILM and not just because we have similar tastes in some areas. Fred seems kind of an intense fellow, who takes things to heart, so I think some of the areas he got involved in were not good for him.

I'm a long-time lurker and only recently started posting here. If you keep away from politics and religion and beatles threads this is one of the friendliest communities I've found on the internet. Those topics always bring out the worst in people even if they essentially agree with each other.

I thought about leaving for greener pastures a couple weeks back but I honestly don't know of any.

you're missed on the film threads Fred, wish you'd stay for what interests you and not get involved when it makes you uncomfortable.

so he posted an ad hom (based on stuff milo had posted here) and received one in reply (based on stuff he posted here). boo hoo.

― COVID and the Gang (jim in vancouver), Wednesday, May 20, 2020 3:32 PM bookmarkflaglink

oh come the fuck on. milo openly posted about owning guns and argued against gun control years back to where he was known as ILX's resident gun owner, and Shakey's post was a light dig at best. he didn't know milo didn't own guns anymore cos milo only made a few posts about it, but it barely matters because "maybe Biden will take your guns away" barely rises to "elbow nudge at a party" level of discourse.

"Rapey Mo" is the type of thing that would get punches thrown. if you can't tell the difference between those two comments, I can't help you. esp since Shakey's comment was 14-something fuckin years old and something pretty much nobody remembered. you only have to read the "right to be fat" thread to find offensively stupid things milo has said more recently than that.

oh geez, yeah, that's one of those threads that brought out some serious ugliness in ppl

are religion polls notably bad on ilx, in the big scheme of things i think not?

rolling keyring (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 9 June 2020 11:08 (one year ago) link

What religion threads?

Who woulda thought, religion threads are probably more popular than the Beatle threads at this point.

pplains, Tuesday, 9 June 2020 13:16 (one year ago) link

By religion, I'm sure they meant pizza.

Whatever happened to hard rock/improv bro Mr. Diamond/Stormy Davis?

Beatles threads are essentially religious threads, surely

looks like she updated her blog yesterday; based on her last few posts on ILX i worry she isn't too keen on coming back :/

budo jeru, Tuesday, 16 June 2020 00:54 (one year ago) link

Sometimes it's best to let go of this place for a good while – I don't blame her in the least, even as I hope she'll come back when she's ready.

he posted just a week ago - seems a little early to milk carton him but he's active on fb if u are hankering for a fix

Mordy, Monday, 20 July 2020 19:29 (one year ago) link

I only did because it came across as an unwarranted self-eject. I hope I'm reading too much into it.
