Anyway, have to get this off my chest. I think the 2030 agenda(s) is important to be aware of. Because paranormal faggotry is full of fags fucking around also do to idjits. Alot of shit is absolutely bullshit or it's poisoned or it's faulty to a lack or interference somewhere ((())). Lots of fags opening holes for hostiles to leak through. Not being properly ended.
2030 that Bear Heart predicted looks to be coming soon. The hoards of hostile alien (non-native Earth based life or thought forms) forces are working hard.
The situation is summed up as such. The hostiles want to eradicate or completely mitigate the Sun.
When I mean the Sun I mean it in every context and metaphorical aligorical context.
They want to destroy your solar center I E your heart. Your metaphorical heart, your literal heart. The whole pollution junk is mitigating the Sun. In you, in the population at large, in the hopes and dreams, and in the reality in motion.
>Anon, what the fuck.
The heart (the Sun) is the reactor, no the culmination of all changing motion of the mind, body and soul.
The Hostile forces despise change. Think of them as stagnant objects, they may have many sides some hidden, but they are forever as they are indefinitely... except when the light of change caresses them altering them. It is antithetical to what they are, and they hate it.
Protect your heart(s). Seal the beaches, stem the tides, in games ensure to loot them once they are inoperable. Manage how where and why their attention is at. Sometimes they are so fixated that they force themselves into one mode of action, directly blocking is just a force of continuous will, on the other hoof going beyond that fixation to achieve the goals works.

I don't care for Nigel. I just appreciate the occasional benis joke.

Youre on an awful lot. Maybe you should apply for staff, maybe thenshit would get cleaned up in less than hours. A pity you're fixated on me for some reason.
Nobody will be getting on staff until the new code is written.

But instead they'll hide behind 'anonymous' and pretend to organically

decide to shitpost at a 'random anon' in a 'random thread', all while feigning ignorance and indifference.
Complaining isn't against the rules, iirc.
As for me, I'm just shitposting for the fun of it.
>>19191>Im just shitposting, honest!
Pull the other one
Not everything is about (You) anon.
I agree, and yet youre clearly trying to make it about me while trying your damndest to disguise the fact. It begs the question of why, but luckily the answer is irrelevant. The only question is, are you as deceitful to yourself as you are to others? Again irrelevant, but worth noting nonethess.
Who is is that you think I am?
>>19194>The only question is, are you as deceitful to yourself as you are to others?
This is just perplexing, tbh. What are you getting on about?
Simply stunning. I didnt realize (((certain posters))) are so threatened by me having my own thread where I can say what I want that they're willing to go to lengths to hijack and derail at every post.
Id say this is attacking users, but to date the only person ever banned for 'attacking users' is me (even though theres no actual rule >>18942
). I would then go on to imply that the user should be put on notice, but the only person ever put on notice has also been me.
Its almost like staff is going out of their way to try and sabotage anything Im trying to do on the site. And NOT for the first time. And no doubt this particular fgt will continue to play dumb and innocent (its no surprise, theyve been doing it their whole life) in response to my observing this otherwise obvious correlation (obvious to anyone paying attention, that is).
The really disappointing thing is, in their general day-to-day their self-image is built up around being a good person, which I have no reason to doubt. Its times like this however, where they willfully abandon their standards and integrity all because Ninjas BAD, that is especially telling. But they wont see the double-standard, cuz that would upset their self-image, so they'll affect a hypocrite who is somehow still 'a good upstanding, and uncompromising person who dindu'.
4chan mods think they can pick the winners too.>why
Well lets see. In the past year Ive effectively forced staff to make changes to the policy page (through public shaming), Ive exposed everything they wanted to keep hidden cuz 'the users
dont deserve cant handle
transparency (Atlas leaving, staff changes, the inability/unwillingness to bring on new staff in spite of a glaring need), made official notice and declaration of the misdeeds of one staff member in particular (who knows I have hardcopy receipts if he tries to posture), and I forced the issue of Nigel to a head where they cant NOT do anything about him or be hypocrites in contrast to how theyve behaved toward me.
But they're also are banking on the fact that aside from correlations and obvious tells, the only way to prove Im right about this would be to be on staff. But as Ive displayed, I dont need to be on staff to get an idea of who's who.
Shouldn't this be /qa/?
>>19201>Its almost like staff is going out of their way to try and sabotage anything Im trying to do on the site.
I am not staff. Calm your tits.
I was shitposting on you because you're the kind of person to take offense to dick jokes.
Ah, the reading comprehension faggot.>take offense to dick jokes
And dishonest. I clearly indicated that the target of those jibes was Nigel, and not the dick jokes. But your insistence to keep posturing belies your 'Im just shitposting'.
What's wrong with Nigel making hypothetical dick jokes? They might be funny.
>>19207>Im just shitposting
Nigel has yet to successfully do anything he has proclaimed himself as having done. Ergo, any claims he makes - including jokes - is speculation prior to evidence. Given that the evidence universally defies his proclamations, its pattern recognition to assume that his efforts are shit, and that his execution is likewise.>>19209

Serious question though.
Its well known that staff positions are hard-coded into the software.
What isnt well known, and what Im curious about now, is why does that require a complete rewrite of the code? Is it that hard to encode a new staff person, that a rewrite is the EASY way of doing it?
I think they want a new mod, problem is, mods right now have basically as much control as admins, cuz it's not finished yet, i dunno were i saw that, maybe the "warning, nigger is posting cp thread"
This has been brought up many times before, on /qa/, /mlpol/, and in the teatime chats. It is the main obstacle to fixing the understaffing problem.>why does that require a complete rewrite of the code?
Idk. Sounds like a /qa/ question, tbh.>>19218
Tbh, at this point, it feels like that shouldn't be that big of an issue. If the staff know and have interviewed the candidate in question, it shouldn't be that hard to give them the big boi keys and trust them not to shit up the code; that was the logic behind giving all of the staff admin controls in the first place. Even if they did, it can't be that hard to restore.
I mean, they are probably afraid that Sven may expose the coup
Brought up, yes, but unresolved and staffing has been an issue for almost 2 years now (yes, this can has been kicked down the road for 2 years), and its getting worse the longer it goes on.>it shouldnt be that big of an issue
It REALLY shouldnt. Meanwhile we got
these in less than 24 hours. Oh, but I'M the one alleged to be power-hungry and unwilling to cede control.
i mean...if this nibba is Atlas...
And this is Ninjas...
No, Atlad abdicated 18 mos ago. Hes made a few cMeos, but hes keeping his distance he fears the dox>>19224
This should be painfully obvious to anyone paying attention, but yea. Not criticizing (you), just saying I know mlpol is above average on the thonk scale so I assumed it was a g9ven that anons have some measure of discernment. Also not criticiIng the less active posters
I just want to believe it's schizo non-sense tbh, dunno where i'll go if this is compromised
No, definitely not that. This is a public shaming, to ensure that it never gets to the point of being compromised.
As the 'I dont like transparency' fag (who IS staff) implied, the less transparency, the easier it is to get away with little instances of overt rule violation.
To be clear, Im NOT trying to cause an overhaul of staff, or a replacement at all. That would be bad for the site, if Im being perfectly honest. But, I am seeking to out an end to the 'rules are what we say they are' mentality, as well as to give staff nowhere to go BUT to improve. And yes, Im willing to humiliate myself in the process.
I don't think this public shaming is necessarily as effective as you think it is...
Well, that's certainly better than what i expected, also, i wasn't the 'I dont like transparency' anon, but i did played a bit ITT, sorry but i can't help myself in id-less threads, i may aswell be a jew
other than that, i've always had your back and will continue to do so
... oh yeah! That (8f5c1c0) guy was an asshole and then I realized that anon is an asshole because that anon is me!>>18776
Excellent thread. 10/10 thread idea and execution will continue pubbing in pony.<Rest in pieces old reply may the refresh never take away the spirit and dreams of new replys.
So far Ive got a 5/5 execution/completion, so I dont know how you qualify that>>19231
No need to apologize, I wasnt insinuating you WERE him, it just seemed an opportune moment to redirect attention to the fact that there IS a 'I dont like transparency' fag, which in context of all the to-do is more significant than meets the 'Im just a random anon, lel' ostensibility.
>>19233>So far Ive got a 5/5 execution/completion, so I dont know how you qualify that
A lot of these things you refer to were due to the efforts of other users who'd been discussing the issues and how to address them for a while.
>>19234>for a while
Yes, 'discussion' was always the issue. ALL of these issues were brought up to staff long before I left, and staff's unwillingness to do anythin BUT talk about things (on the rare occasion they could be arsed to) was among my principal motivations TO leave. So yes, there are and have been other participants in the aftermath, but if you neglect to observe the almost immediate responses/results Ive gotten by being a squeaky wheel, thats on you.
You would be surprised with what can be achieved when you don't care about who get's the credit
Not surprised at all, and Im pleased to not be the only one doing it this time around. Elusive tactics are far more effective than direct, IME.
As far as credit, it used to be that I would allow others to take credit for my efforts, but over time my lack of credit-taking was weaponized against me, both from the "you didnt do shit" allegations to the "Im taking credit for your efforts" sorta shit.
>>19239>but over time my lack of credit-taking was weaponized against me, both from the "you didnt do shit" allegations to the "Im taking credit for your efforts" sorta shit.
Yeah...i know what you're talking about
It do be like that sometimes. Im speaking more generally, in with regards to professional environments with the following, but the best way to avoid A. being disparaged for 'not doing anything'when one IS doing everything and B. habing others take credit for your work is to incorporate some form of 'signature'to your work.
Literally, a signature, as in serial killing; except, you're killing product, so its serial working.
The easiest methods are with production numbers. If you're like me, as you work you're always looking for subtle things - machine behaviors, necessary maintenance, quirks of the layout, etc. If you can get your production numbers 10% above your 'peers', people will take notice. If you take the time to do your job better than everyone else, you'll be surprised how much accommodation you will get. I worked at one mill that made a 5-ton specialty saw - to my specifications - because they knew I wasnt gonna dick around. And for 3 years I was the highest paid machine operator at the company, with absolutely unassailable production numbers. They STILL havent broken my production records!
Bit its not just production either, even the CLEANING guys loved me, because they never had to.clean up shit, because when you figure out the job to maximum production and efficiency, you have time to leisurely clean your area while producing unassailable production levels.
And if you think 'not needing to send the cleaning crew in every night' isnt also something that draws attention, let me just inform you that the aupervisors who schedule and oversee absolutely notice.
This isnt to say that you wont run into douchebag bosses and supervisors, one should always be sensitive and on guard for that shit, and there is only so much you can do to mitigate. Imo its better to make less money for a great boss than more.moneynfor a shitty one
Yeah, but this is with context on ninjas and staff.
Still, pretty useful post poner, thanks!
>>19249<Are ye SURE ye wantin' to go there?
I think I know what you're referring to and if correct, I hope you appreciate that I have to be very careful how I word things. For one, I would prefer to be as accurate as possible, and for two I can guarantee the opinions and dispositions of parties involved have changed since then and I would be going out on a limb without any reasonable expectation for corroborration.
Bit you're not wrong, so gimme a bit.
For many anons, the following is old news, however for many anons and newfags, this is an unwritten piece of Mlpol lore.
<Dateline, May 17th 2017
Not long after Mlpol's inception as an independent website I was embroiled in the execution of my late mother's estate. She had passed at about 3am the morning following mother's day (by college rules she died on mother's day, not lost on me). Aside from all the personal consequences and obstacles, it became apparent that she had left me and my brother an unexpected windfall. And, as the estate execution came to a close I found myself thinking of what I wanted to do with this sudden and highly unanticipated boon.
Leading up to this point on the site, this was right around the time GR15DF was lurking, and had his (imo) infamous run in with Atlas. For those who missed it, GR15DF basically said 'stop spreading cancer everywhere and Ill leave you guys alone', to which Atlas replied 'clippity cloppity, GET OFF MY PROPERTY'. That was the moment that I made a personal commitment to donate to the site in perpetuity. This was just after the 32chan/sp/ incident, which aside from being lots of fun, taught me a few things. Namely, I learned from 32 million (or whatever his 'name' was, he was the guy who literally shut us down with his bot/proxy setup) who unintentionally explained that their chan was entirely internally funded by specific anons, 32mil included. This gave me an idea of how Mlpol could be funded/perpetuated that I will put into motion shortly.
In any case, when Atlas had his exchange with GR15DF, I became an mlpol patron.
And then the mlpol patreon got shoah'd.
Bringing us back to the 17th, it was the wee hours of the morning, and I was browsing threads. Mlpol was an amazing thing to me, and is principally responsible for me deciding NOT to kill myself. Id been thinking/planning it for years. It was going to be a modern seppuku, using a Hissatsu and a Sig .40, where instead of cutting my head off, I would blow it off.. And as I sat there browsing the site, it occurred to me that I had the power to facilitate Mlpol's financial perpetuity. And the moment I had the thought, it was immediately approved.
Having been involved in alt communities and forums (many very tin-foil-hat wearing) I had seen the rise and fall of communities, often centered around upkeep and donations. Specifically, I had watched them fall under the weight of insufficient donations, of application of ads and shitware, and watch the fledgeling groups dissipate and evaporate.
So, I reached out to Atlas by email and we connected by discord.
I offered to fund Mlpol in its entirety: server costs, upkeep, etc. I wanted mlpol to never have ads, adware, links, clicks, banner ads, spyware etc.
Atlas agreed on one condition: my funding of the site granted no special privileges, rights, accounts, status, leverage, etc., expressed or implied. We agreed to the terms.
So, up until,... lets see,... around january of 2021 I was the sole financier of the site. There were small proceedes garnered by the store (that is, the portion that Meax WASN'T skimming off the top), but effectivrly it was all me. And it wasnt easy either, patreon got shut down almost immediately, followed by paypal cuz 'muh hate speech'. We had to grt creative for. a bit, and my first bitcoin purchases were to transfer to Atlas. We managed a workaround, as well as some 'totally legitimate' contract work such as when Atlas made me my computer (I just happened to overpay him by an amount equal to the site upkeep for a year ^_~).
Its important to note that while there were a handful who had been made aware of my 'role' in and around mlpol, aside from Atlas and Lotus, no one on staff knew. So, when I actually applied for and was approved as staff, it was without general knowledge that I was bankrolling the whole thing. I would later reveal this first to Pupper and then others, but it was not openly known nor at all the basis for my inclusion as staff. <cont>
I would later go on to relocate to Texas, and with a business partner would form the private milling busines we operate to this day, which is the subject of my new and recret contributions to Mares in Manufacturing. I was also heavily involved in running the weekly mlpol streams which included Philosophy night, animation night, mlp night, and movie night. Aside from my at-the-time recurring threads (if you know, you know) I was a subtly obvious participant around mlpol, which seemed suffice for my inclusion on staff.
Ill skip a few instances, bringing us up to ~ Jan 2020.
Ar this time, I was AWOL. Literally. A number of issues in and around staff had arisen and been sidelined/ignored, and I wasnt having it. I notified Atlas of my intentions - to continue using my staff account to BTFO CP/spammers/kysfilly - but was otherwise washing my hands of staff, their indecisiveness and inability to A. discuss somrthing to point of resolution, and B. monitor/moderate the site with any emphasis. Seriously, you dont know how many times I pinged staff chat to present a new and potentially emerging problem only to be met with "What? Whats going on? I need a quick rundown". I cant (directly) speak to now, but in previous years staff has been (imo) woefully and shamefully ignorant of what is going on on site at a given moment. The impression (subjective) I was given is that staff saw monitoring the site as a chore and a consequence, rather than a responsibility/duty. Literally, that was at the core of Meax's dismissal, though I still lament the loss of the store when he went scorched earth (with cause, his dox was in the store information).
So, as said, I went awol. With Atlas' blessing, I continued to janny the shit out of any unwelcome posts and posters, but otherwise gave 0 fucks about what staff - and specifically Lotus - wanted. This went on for several months. At the end of it, I petitioned to return to staff (in an official capacity) because of changes and developments to do with staff. This was June 2020.
And I was approved to rejoin staff, though any who approved at the time have come to regret the decision.
This was when Atlas wanted out. For reasons, Atlas was concerned about Lotus being given unmitigated Admin of the site, and Lotus (and certain others who just so happen to always side with him and say the things he would have them say,... nothing odd there) would NOT have me AND Lotus as admin. Cuz I didnt deserve it?
But thats not the point of interest.
The point of interest is: prior to these changes that brought me back to staff, Altas had wanted to name his successor. At least, thats what he directly told me latrr on through DMs.
I was not around for this, it occurred outside my knowledge. And, I am taking him at his word on this. Having said, Atlas claimed that by virtue of the manner of my participation (funding it ever since) along with my disposition (Idgaf about credit, I pay for there to be an mlpol because I want there to BE an mlpol for me to browse), if I hadnt been AWOL at the time, he would have named ME as successor. Yes, you read that correctly. Im not going to go into any 'rightfully!' tirades, and I absolutely WONT claim that its worse that I wasnt, but for a moment I could have been Titan.
So, when I DID come back to staff, I proposed - after a slough of DMs with Atlas and others - that Mlpol should have 3 admins; Lotus, Elway, and myself.
The purpose was to have a dynamic where A. there could never be a stalemate vote on intrgral matters, B. no one person could dictate to/for the site with impugnity, and C. (most importantly) there was a 98% there would be an admin on site at all times, given our usage history and active times.
THIS is where the allegations of 'you didnt do shit' began. I wont name names, but they know who they are and how paltry their own qualifications were at thr time (though I acknowledge, they have stepped up 'a bit' in my absence). Still, no one can kill detractor posts like I could, and with the level of proactive strategy I employed (I would literally plot on a timeline when detractors would appear, and then set an alarm clock so I was waiting whrn they posted). Moreover,
I cant speak to who specifically has taken the role of paying for the site, but I am aware of professional developments for many of staff which make funding the site a no-brainer. Hence, even though Im purely in the realm of speculation as to who/how, I have absolute confidence in staff's ability to continue the site in perpetuity, without needing any compromise like adverts n shit.
But, lest it go unspoken, staff got there because Ninjas did it for years, without anyone (anons) knowing.
While running movie/stream nights, while maintaining a full-time job and then later setting up and running a private business that exists to this day, while absolutely destroying any detractors who dared to click new reply. My personal best was less than 30 seconds
Now, where the site goes from here, IDK. I very much prefer to be the asshole who gives 0 fucks and openly proclaims things others want kept under wraps. I find I have much more influence in this role than I ever had on staff, where was always trying to tow the line between being carfeul of what I say (being 'professional' - laughable in that I was the only person on staff who has ever been an ACTUAL IRL Administrator from which to make such a distinction) and being effective and assertive.
I got blackballed for observing things that individuals on staff should be doing but werent, and getting on their case for it (what has erstwhile been described as 'causing problems and arguments', which is literally an administrator's job). 'Bullying Nigel' was just an excuse, and even he will admit it (even though Ive turned up the intensity on him in the past few weeks), as Lotus specifically is guilty of orders of magnitude worse.
But it is what it is. When he's not abusing his power, Lotus is an excellent administrator, and I understand why he took offense at the notion of 'sharing'admin. Pupper, Elway, Stix, et al are all good at what they do, and Sven (imo) would make a fine addition to staff.
Me, I dont want to be on staff, and it would be inappropriate otherwise given all that has transpired. I quit drinking weeks ago so 'late-night drunken rants and posts' wont be a thing anymore, but by and large I prefer the autonomy of independence.
And though I take pleasure in being critical of staff where they deserve it, we ARE on the same side, at the end of the day, and it has been a long time since staff has done anything that I think warrants consequence.
Tl;dr. Take this with a grain of salt, its one person's biased experience and interpretation. But it did happen, much tht it is behind ua now
Well, thanks a lot for being so open anon, i've been intrigued since the threads regarding Atlas' departure, at the same time, sorry if i made you go into certain details.
But am glad you are doing well now anon, your drunk rants were a bit worrying tbh
, i think i have a tendency to side with the underdog, fortunately, i don't have any reasons to regret my decision, what else can i do besides retarded shitposting anyways?
I take this back>>19236
I dunno what else to add
I dont feel you have anything to apologize for, hence I do not accept your apology. XP
Ill even go a step further in asserting that I dont feel that the site has anything to gain from any corrections, modifications, or ammendments. Though not my hands, I honestly feel the site is in good hands, of people who honestly want the best for the site and its users. I have a very different way of pursuing such ideological ends, but its not a case of one party is right while the other is wrong. At the end of the day, my interests are the perpetuity of the site. Ive taken several leaves of absence, and yet I keep coming back because I care about it and 'cant' let go of. Im not the only one who feels this way, and its inherently natural that individuals have disagreements about what theyre passionate about and what is 'proper form' wrt progress and development.
And, if I had the slightest inkling that making such declarations would damage the site, I would refrain. Im confident that mlpol users are bigbois who realize mommy and daddy dont always get along, and pretending otherwise serves no one.
So saying, the history of mlpol is messier than it appears, but that in no way invalidates what it has been, what it is, and what it will be. I trust that anons will appreciate this, and move forwards with a complete understanding of the various nuances that have lead us to where we are today.
And no, I dont care who I piss off in the process. I like being Batman ^_~
/mlpol/ remains as it is.

Let's cheer for that poner!
<If I dinnae know any bettah, Id say sommon wuz shittin up the boards with these'n necro-bumps. Joost say'in lad, tha's how it looks
>the bartender says, polishing the outside of a whiskey glass
Looks like it's mostly just /vx/.
Possibly, but we had also FAIRLY low traffic yesterday
Those rpg posts always eat up the log. Don't even bother checking it.
A "how to make fashwave" thread would be cool
Then make one. Post it to /cyb/.
One day is nothing to be afraid of, but i did hopped in regularly, and we got like 30 posts at most yesterday besides the rpg one
We even had a pathetic raid attempt after some poners kicked their nest (dunno who were the tranny raiders tho), i couldn't even report any of the threads before they were nuked, fantastic work tbh
Also old breads bumped in /vx/ in an obvious attempt to sink a perhaps inconvenient one.
And what thread might that be?
>>19291>Inb4 flat earth thread
"current earth thread" then?
The earth is shaped like a ponut
Some faggot is messing with the catalogs.
Shhhhh, he's 'stimulating site activity'
I'm just really bored this weekend, tbh.
By bumping so many breads you are creating fragmentation of the brain attention. I think your intention might be good, but it will backfire.
It becomes chaotic and the participation will plummet.
Hey, so long as threads are still on the catalog they're fair game to post in.
So, what, you think we should just all post in the same handful of threads forever?
A bit is fine, but un-discriminated bumping is confusing.
So, what do you propose posting instead?
We have rule 11 here. We're not supposed to make new threads so long as similar ones are on the catalog.
All right, suit yourselves.
Pupper said he gave /vx/ a large page count only to preserve old threads because there was no archive for /vx/>>>/qa/6564 →
That doesn't mean you should bump decade old threads
Well, they're not doing any harm at the top of the catalog as opposed to the bottom, so idk what the problem is.
Just say it, you lost the flat earth debate and you know it
I'm OP from Flat Earth truth. You are answering to the wrong fag.
So, you are admitting that the bumping is because of the Flat Earth bread?
I never participated in the flat earth debate. Idk why you think it's related.
sure...way of burying the humiliation huh?
I didn't bother bumping flat earth because I knew someone else would bump it anyway.
Also I had nothing to say.
Huh? You mean TRIUMPH!!!
Somebody entertain me... I'm just so BORED.
Sure filly. What you would like?
Read some of the shitty fics in the write-a-fag general
>>19332>The other day, he couldn't recall a single thing, other than how right he proved to be
New threads. New greentext. New conversations. Moar poners posted everywhere.
Goku could beat Superman in a fight, discuss
Yeah. Anonfilly's bread is missing them.
Yes, cuz Goku isn't limited to the laws of physics, DBZ operates outside those laws, meaning he was already faster than light by the time he fought Piccolo
Superman is invincible on account of DC Mary Sue bullshit. He's not "really, really tough and strong" like Goku is; he's outright invulnerable and has unlimited strength.
True. Superman is effectively invulnerable, but he can be worn down by a beating. Same can be said for Goku, but Goku has trained ever since expressly for fighting. His technique is vastly superior to superman's, and just like superman he gets stronger the more you beat on him. Eye beams are piccolo tier
If you don't like the bumping you could alwas just bump-back the threads you prefer to restore the order of the pages. Nothing is stopping you.
I want to be as horse famous as nigel is
i want to be a horse
I screw up yes, but i still think sagin' should get a buff, even when done properly, i've never ever seen it work
Also, this thread is a genious idea, if you are too much of a retard like myself, you can keep feeding shills ITT without derailing the other threads.
Nah, its fine, I do the same shit with the Flatty, but at least he unironically believes(?) his shit instead of that pilpul-assed, lies through his teeth about everything (my favorite is when he tries to represent site consensus), jesus-christ-how-obvious-of-a-non-user-does-someone-have-to-be-before-action-is-taken, shill.
>>19327>>19332<Ay, fook off t' yer containement thread flatty, we dunna serve keul-eed here
Well, we scattered her ashes about 6 months ago, and even if we hadn't it was HER money that funded the site for years - and you, dont forget - meaning you are again trying feebly to disparage people who actually contribute(d) the site.
To add embarrassment to injury, you not only went with the most abysmally basic of lead-in 'lel, I did ur mom' jokes, but doubled down when it didnt land, and are posturing as though you 'won' this encounter merely because you avoided admitting that you're shit.
The MOST embarrassing thing is that you KNOW you're shit, and yet you carry on with the facade. Why? Because knowingly living a lie that everyone knows is a lie is SOMEHOW preferrable to admitting the amount of time and effort you continue to devote to living the lie.
Anyone wanna take bets as to how he's gonna drflect this time?
>>19366>"I fucked your mom lmao" is "feebly trying to disparage people who actually contributed to the site"
The sheer lengths you'll stretch the truth to would astound me if I hadn't come to expect this.
I gave you a "yo momma" joke because a longer argument against such childish insults would be pointless.
You are, as you were in this off-topic derailment attempt...>>331990
It might be more constructive for me to say this outright...
Have you ever heard this argument before?
"If you are giving your criticism in a way that makes the subject not want to listen to you, your criticism has failed."
Well, "You should stop writing for good" is not criticism that will improve writing. Calling it criticism is a stretch. It's just noise. I am not obligated to respect it.
Well, if the point of the criticism is to communicate with the subject, then doing so in a way that makes them more incined to listen is important.
>>19367>off topic derailing to call someone else's avoidance of derailing an off topic derail
Cant make this shit up>the lengths to stretch the truth
Oh? So you're saying I DIDNT use a portion of my inheritance to throw you a bone (about $500 total) when you were crying like a bitch and thinking about necking yourself back in winter 2018? While abrasive, Im very truthful which is why you're so keen to deflect, you know youll get eviscerated in anything reseming a discussion. If it wasnt true, I wouldnt say it, and my reputation - like me or not - says the same. As opposed to you, who has 0 reservations about lying in the face of incontravertable evidence, and can only wibble (as in, you have no ejaculatory prowess) with quips like 'ur mom' and 'ur gay'.>you should stop writing for good wont improve my writing
As I have indicated, and as the audience can attest, quitting writing WOULD improve your writing
. Unsurprisingly thats the one thing you wont try, because you have it in your head that writing improvement means exploiting 'different' tropes, as opposed to abandoning the laziness by which you employ shitty tropes to begin with. The fact that you refuse to do the very things that will improve your writing is what leads me (not exclusively) to the position that the only way to improve would be for you to stop.
You will never be a real author.>>19370
Get fucked, this has been going on for over 4 years, and every conceivable method has been attempted multiple times INCLUDING offering legitimate constructive criticism. Being as though he has shirked every previous attempt (read: he doesnt listen when he IS being catered to) there is no cause to show him any favor now.
Shit, forgot to change my pw also. Oh well, Im confident the message is only avoidable by someone who isnt a narcissist, and who can help himself but to see what was said, while pretending to not notice.
And while Im being totally-ignored-by-Nigel(tm), is anyone seriously of the mind that if I WASNT butt-bothering him, that he would magically POUF (reference intended) and become a viable and contributing poster? Like, Im the only bar for him suddenly and surprisingly deciding to act/post without an autistic writing streak 1.5 miles long? As though, if I simply stopped posting, that he would magically decide to be a self-reflecting poster who weighs his comments based on legitimacy of argument while cross-referencing to determine he isnt making lazy assumptions off unactionable pretenses? Thats just going to happen if I start being nice to him?
Lurk moar. Nigel is the problem he has been because he has more stamina than the people who's responsibility is to moderate the site.
Because of him, there has been:
1. A 'no nigel' (glimmernigger) policy
2. (And only a month later) an ignore Nigel policy
Why? Because certain membera of staff werent willing to put their money where their mouths are, and maintain a reasonable standard of discipline. It was much easier for the individual in question to decide 'you know what, I dont want to ACTUALLY enforce the site's policy (which included the previous prohibition on
glimmernigger Nigel posting) because its too HARD. Cuz Nigel will McDonalds post, or Starbucks, or whoever will offer free wifi. And said certain individual on staff cant be bothered to have any consistency, so instead they made a blanket 'no-no' about addressing Nigel AT ALL. This is what eas (falsely) labelled as troll-shielding, which tbqh neglected to appreciate the severity.
Tldr N8gel is the nuisance h3 is because he was ENABLED by individuals (ahem) 'currently still staff' who abandoned their responsibility YEARS before I was anywhere near on about it.
>>19375>It's not nigel's fault. It's /mlpol/' staff fault.
Its both. Nigel has a definitive responsibility for not regulating himself, and THAT onus is on him. Having said, staff has been woefully derelict in their duty to establish clear and consistant boundaries, which would otherwise mitigate one such as Nigel (or at least, would make very clear why he was being banned all the time, assuming anyone other than me had the stamina to keep up with him, which history depicts as a big fat NO).
Youre welcome to make a counter argument, if you can manage more than trite, generalized, out-of-context memes.
Wow, a lazy faggot is only slighly less lazy.
Care to address the rest of my points, or are you intent on remaining a lazy faggot?
>>19381>Care to address the rest of my points
I can't. I'm not a Nigel specialist.
>>19376>>19375>>>/mlpol/331989 →>>It's not nigel's fault. It's /mlpol/' staff fault.
I'm trying to wrap my mind around that wtf statment.>It's nigel's fault for fucking over communication attempts<despite the disadvantage it is possible to overcome kneejerk reactions and obtain long term memory, and other routines that improve relations.-Totally like Mugen when you make a character that stunlocks but only because you put in the optional effort.

Jason, you currently are acting like bugmen in their stories. Their stories is about abusive fuckers, but the issue the protagonist is the power to enact the same abuses and worse upon others.
They are all about saving face. Going around being a cunt. Proclaiming to have deep insights. The issue is nothing changes.
They remain shitty, the world around them remains shitty, the relationships are shitty, the aspirations are shitty, their actions are shitty. Their words are paper tigers, flimsy things to be disregarded as is everyone elses words and actions.>>19382>I can't>>19376
Welp time to put your words into the trash.
So, your position is - and Im quoting - 'ew no' with a FB-tier meme image, while admitting a gross ignorance of the dynamic?
Meaning, you cant be bothered to know what youre talking about, and are knowingly taking a position in ignorance?
Some good songs and or ponesers.
In the mean time I'll passout.
It looks like I hit a nerve.
>>19386>lol, Ima pretend I didnt just get shown as an abject sychophant cuz ppl called me out on my shit
This is literally a Nigel-tier deflection.
Need I say moreDont worry, I will
Here you go me a pone*2.
I don't even know what happened here

stupid ass nigger shut the fuck up about FoE for once? Is that retarded smelly ass dyke going to live rent free in your mind for the rest of your life?
I mean, in his defense, I'm the one who brought it up when I misinterpreted the thread topic.
A comparison to earlier works covered by earlier threads seems valid to me considering how both are popular Fimfics that both feature homosexuality. It was just an advertising gimmick for FOE that had a female protagonist written just like a horny male one, but for My Little Dashie 2: Homos Cannot Innovate Edition faggotry is the only reason it exists. The story puts sucking off the idea of gays adopting before story.
I guess so, but he's been dragging that one thing across the whole site for a while now, not particularly pissed about it, just an observation
His analysis/complaints were legitimate and agreeable, and the thread wasn't derailed, so I don't think it's that big of a deal.
Am not the anon pushing for another crusade, don't worry
