Yes, Euler, thx TH.

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 11:04 (one year ago) link

Another person who last posted in March, funny how criticism of his racist posts was personal but Euler taking notes about a throwaway comment my husband made about not watching Eurovision in Israel the previous year and then trying to use it against me as a gotcha was cool and fine 🙃 If he had stopped posting after the shitshow that thread was, I wouldn’t pretend I felt sorry about it.

iirc he once admitted he has something like 14 posters killiefied. If this place became that much like hard work to him then I'm hardly surprised he's fucked off!

Isn't it simpler to just skip reading a post when you see who wrote it than to killfile them?

I think Morbs once said it was for crybabies, he might have had a good point.

calzino, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 11:49 (one year ago) link

You will probably not be surprised to find out I wouldn't know how to killfile even if I wanted to but, yes, feeling like you have to killfile a dozen or so fellow forum users suggests it might not be the place for you.

14 is a little high. I think my personal best was around 10 but it's ancient history.

nashwan, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 12:06 (one year ago) link

Tbf 10 was nothing once, its half the site now

I have everyone on this board killfiled. I hope that's germane to whatever discussion is taking place here.

Slime Goobody (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 12:21 (one year ago) link

I hope LBI is ok.

And Euler too – my short-lived attempt at a French-language borad is even more dead now.

Honest answer: Because you don't realize what/who you're reading until you're halfway through it?

pplains, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 13:29 (one year ago) link

point of killfile is to reduce hard work iirc

If you've read most of the (potentially) offending post already, how bad can it be?

yeah, don't lose your head over it

Top Tips:

Get some bifocal spectacles and completely black out the upper section of the lens with gaffer tape. Hold your head to a 90 degree angle and you achieve instant message borad utopia.

I'm glad Euler is gone.

14 users killfiled is hilarious.

i have only ever been tempted to killfile for one poster - not a poster who particularly annoyed me, they just posted frequently and in large amounts and i wasnt interested in reading their posts, but i never bothered my arse.

Euler was good, but I'm glad in the sense I assume people are happier while not posting here.

I liked Euler on ILM.

Deicide at Chuck E. Cheese (PBKR), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 18:26 (one year ago) link

He was fine up until his Macronization.

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 18:28 (one year ago) link

he lived and taught in France. i thought that made his thoughts on such things valuable or at the very least tolerable.

Suggest you read the posts in question before saying that.

Scamp Granada (gyac), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 18:57 (one year ago) link

I think (though I'm not sure) I have read them. And if I did read them, I also think Euler remained "fine" throughout.

How nice for you, I personally don’t think him repeatedly implying several of us were apologists terrorism or that both my husband and I were antisemitic were acceptable arguments really, but we clearly have very different standards.

Scamp Granada (gyac), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 19:19 (one year ago) link

He'd gone a bit native with the old French Islamophobie.

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 19:22 (one year ago) link

So horrible to be called antisemitic by the person you call islamophobic

xp to map. not sure if i'm interpreting your post correctly, but my point was more that there was needless name calling on both sides, on this board -- within our small bubble, no wider political meaning intended. I don't think any one poster is actually an antisemite, an islamophobe, or a terrorism apologist. Bringing that into it so soon after the beheading, and directing it toward one poster who was closer to the attack than the others seemed undiplomatic (by 'closer' I just mean physically and in occupation. I understand that Euler was not the Frenchest French poster in France and this bothered some). I get that it was all motivated in part by the dread of what would be and was in fact France's racist and nationalistic response. But then it kept being weaponized against Euler to everyone's boredom in unrelated threads. It was over the top imo.

on the extremely rare occasions i've killfiled someone, it was to keep me from drunkenly responding to them to no useful purpose

probably should use it more tbh

Is Tomboto around?

Deicide at Chuck E. Cheese (PBKR), Thursday, 13 May 2021 11:34 (one year ago) link

fwiw, Euler consistently doubled down on his view that laïcité is a neutral and good thing in French society that isn't weaponized against minority religious and ethnic populations. For that alone, anything he said was suspect in my book, since that viewpoint is so demonstrably wrong and fucked-up.
