The dinosaur said I should come back as "one of them or not at all" but who the hell knows what that means
You're deemed 'one of them' at RI. Just not exceptional enough, I guess. The segregationalism at RI is excrutiating. Jeff Wells must be wincing.

Jeff Wells could do something about it if he wished. I mean, he owns the board, right? Right?

After all, his FB page now serves as verification for new RI accounts, so that means his law still rules?

I really think people should revisit the last decade spent bemoaning Jeff's absence.

No oversight at RI any more. Not that it needs it - there are no dissenting voices to rail against the message being pumped there 24/7 by AD and slad (now there's an interesting case - I had never witnessed an actual psycoschism take place before my very eyes before - it happened the day Trump was elected). Wombat's hands-off stance regarding moderation continues to pay dividends - tug of the forelock to you, Sire. AD is on a bonus for every mind he turns to mush - payable when he gets to torture white, male, heterosexual anti-semites - sporting a chic black uniform with armbands and addressed as Commandant of Eurasian Correction Camp #1.
Maybe it's all a fad. Or a social science experiment allowed to run a little too far. Without any laughs.
Here's hoping.

This effete and childish rant, capped with - "Julian Assange deserves every bad thing that is about to happen to him... and worse. Far, far worse." - so neatly encapsulates the mind-set that has rotted from within any vestige of impartiality at RI. The language and tone that Jerky uses leads me to assume that he really would like to see a large number of fellow citizens hanging from lampposts, so that he can feel truly superior to the infidels that lack the clarity of his own exceptional vision. It's at times like this that one can really understand how extremists gain sway.

while I havent been to RI in months; I always click on this thread when it's updated with prurient fascination.

everyone slows down to look at a car wreck.

I don't. Can't bear it - in case I saw something that I couldn't get out of my mind. I heard a little girls screams after she'd been run over by a lorry when I was kid and I never, ever want to hear anything like that - or see anything that may be related to noises like that - ever, ever again. Unless I absolutely have to.
A medic I ain't.

RI isn't a car crash - it's an inevitable outcome. :-)

I think this will be my last comment on RI. It's transformation into a pro-authority, msm-driven arm of the neocon mindset is complete. AD now posts stuff from the SPLC - whom have complete authority to decry as anti-semitic anyone who they disfavour, which is very handy, as it's the most emotively devestating slur one can cast in America - plus slads overbearing, preening ownership of the Ruddians dun it narrative has all but stripped anything but partisan compliance from the site. Those that resist do so meekly, so as not to be ganged up upon by the Big Names. There is no need for moderation, because there is nothing but the party line to follow. There is literally nothing of interest left, beyond habit and incredulity.

Word.

For a long while I kept going back to lurk. Incredulity is about the right sentiment. I finally gave up because it became so boringly predictable.

However, I think the same thing happens to any forum that gets too big. I'm watching it happen in realtime to r/con.

Yeah - as soon as it becomes a credible threat to the way curious people see the world, it becomes swamped with 'correct thinkers'. The system has hordes of virtuous mouthpieces that revel in parroting what they hear from, or read, in the mainstream. I used to worry about it, but now I just laugh at the idiosyncracies of human nature.

Yeah but RI was never that big. If anything it has gone downhill recently because it has shrunk so much that the people who apparently have nothing else to do with their lives have completely taken it over. Mainly SLAD with her hysterical “I’ll believe anything now as long as it means Trump is a monster” monomania combined with the thinnest skin of anyone on the Internet. It’s unbearable. And now Jerky, who is a nasty cowardly bully, has also obtained a large slice of the shrunken pie because nobody calls him out on his nasty lying bullshit any more. There were people who used to shut him down. Then you’ve got the SLAD lackeys who are probably marching in a pink pussy-hat DNC March as I’m typing this ....

It’s like a corpse of something that used to be wonderful and alive and the maggots have taken over.

Imagine this: you're heading over to visit a place from the past that has special memories from your life. Once upon a time, when you arrived at the town square,if you said 'hello' to anyone there, many of them said 'hi' back to you - and those that didn't just carried on about their business.

But now, when you arrive, every person you encounter screams, in unison:

YOURE A FUCKING NAZI. YOURE STUPID. YOURE AN IDIOT. YOU HATE EVERYONE. WE HATE YOU. WHY DONT YOU FUCK OFF? JUST FUCK OFF.
And they mean it.

No thanks.
