Re: We don't mind liars, as long as they are "on our side."

This is my first post here since I experienced an ischemic stroke. When I wrote the above, I was already experiencing early stroke symptoms. My doctor did not recognize them but I think the post above was the last one I wrote before I went to bed that night and I woke up in the middle of the night ...

Re: Larry lectures us again

When did Sanger become the right-leaning centrist conspiracy-leaning rightist? Obama ran the country on Republican lines - we never got a second New Deal out of the economic collapse, and none of the bankers responsible were tried, then taken out and shot as what should have happened. The actual sc...

Running about a 5% fatality rate, as some medical authorities predicted weeks ago.
NEW YORK (as of 11:59 pm, 4/5/20, per Johns Hopkins via Guardian)

DEATHS = 4,159

CONFIRMED CASES = 123,160

4,159 / 123,160 = 3.38%

Virtually all other states have a lower death rate than that.

Very unlikely the ViliGnat is Dutch.
Zero percent chance of that. Anyone making such a claim is a lunatic.

Re: Evil!!!

Surely you are of such an age, and capable enough of reading, to realize that "boss" is being used as an adjective.

Enjoyed the 700 word reply.

Re: Evil!!!

You're a very sad person if you think your idiotic, sexist "Vagina = Vigilant" wordplay that you copped from Eric is even a little bit funny.

(I'm happy to virtue-signal for the Gender Scribe, she's boss.)

Re: Handling Trolls for Fun and Profit

My theory is that communities that allow trolling (on a "free speech" argument) seriously damage participation. Most sane people walk away from trolling, so . . . what's left when they do? Yes, there is a problem, how to distinguish between discussion and disagreement and trolling. But, in fact, wi...

Re: Midsize Jake

That said, Mr. Abd is a very unusual character in Wikiland, in that he not only eagerly responds to all criticism of himself (at great length). I assume this is some sort of quasi-intellectualized attention-getting strategy, almost like he's a self-actualizing Streisand Effect Agent, except that Ba...
