Sara Vote Update

OK, first of all, this wasn’t a vote to ban her. It was to limit her to 5 comments per post. My hope was that such a disciplinary action would motivate her to rein in her tsunami of consciousness blather and not use the comments section as a therapist’s couch.

The 5 comment limit also applies to SAM, who really should get together with Sara and make beautiful genital music with her. The demon spawn of such a conjugation would usher forth a new age child of such transcendent purity that he will be a light unto all the peoples of all the nations to beat their swords over their own heads.

But as it stands, the commenters have really come through for you Sara. Their love has spared you… for now.  Let’s try to tighten it up going forward, k?

    I gotta say Roissy, this is a first for you… you realize the slippery slope of censorship starts with something really well intentioned.

    More importantly you will have shut down any serious debate. I was under the impression that this place encouraged debate.

    5 posts is just not enough for real debate.

    I’ll grant, that I have sometimes chosen to over post.

    But 5 comments per thread when you have threads that have gone above 200, leaves us out of the conversation as it evolves.

    As for the others who’s Schicks (שטיק) that clog your blog, that add nothing new Re: Peter’s obsession with pubes,
    but because they are a single occurrence (that cause a bunch of off topic posts) per thread, they get a pass right?

    Give me equal posts or give me death -SAM

    No Steve,

    *laughs out Loud*

    not sara… I was referring to my debates with Anon/anonymous57.

    At the beginning with sara, before I snapped to the fact that she is a troll-artist I was trying to engage her in serious debate. I wised up to it tho.

    @14 – Capitalism at work!

    Banning people is no good unless they are beyond the pale. Censorship is not a good path to follow for anything even remotely resembling a borderline case.

    Sara is annoying but harmless. What we really need is an ignore function.

  16. Why not limit them to a percentage of the comments received? Let’s say 5%, so if a thread goes to 200 comments, they’ll still have adequate time to respond.

    On the other hand, it would help them focus, gather their thoughts and send one longer comment rather than a flurry of distracting one-liners.

    Why not just not censor it’s not like Sara makes herself hidden. You can easily just scroll past her comments. Leave SAM alone, I like his slightly leftist take on conspiracies.

    I second the motion for a minimum of five posts from Hope. I would also extend this requirement to Johnny Five, PA, Sestamibi, and Gannon.

    I get banned there will be two bloggers shot up on the block. J/K I think.

    Leave sara to her saraness she is evolving if anyone hasn’t seen it.

    I checked game on some feminist websites as well they where ripping obama to shreds. Once you got past the wierdos talking hating all men period. Some had some points. Dang.

    Maybe it is divide and conquer. Thinking your against each other but need each other to not be oppressed by big brother.

    Anyway.

    I think you and others here must seriously over value the importance of these so-called debates. I mean, seriously over value. Do you guys really think you’re changing the world with your comments, observations, quotes, and statistics? This is serious discourse?

    Guilty as charged!

    I think you (big surprise) missed my point.

    You don’t try and fail to engage in serious debate, you don’t even try.

    Someone above was arguing that censorship and serious debate don’t mix well. Not a concern in your case.

    Am I wrong? Are you trying to be sober and scholarly?

    1. You are not wrong. She is not really concerned with being censored, she has time management issues after all.

    I doubt she is trying to be sober and scholarly.

    The difference between sara the whatever, and myself is she has no personal stake. For her, this is just entertainment.

    I seek to contribute, learn, and challenge people. Unlike sara, I realized a big idea can happen anywhere any time, an earth changing idea.

    She could acknowledge the truth that if you change yourself, you have changed the world. She failed to either see that one, or say it.

    I think some males who come here, and see Roissy and his merry band of commenter, reenacting Paul Revere will snap and see that there is a sex war on. And that the extreme feminists tried to march on concord to take our guns. (metaphors are beautiful)

    The more men who awaken, who join the fight the better the chances for our happiness become. Remember change starts local. And if enough locales change, so too does a nation.

    Are you trying to be sober and scholarly?

    Many a truth is spoken in jest, and I am more jester than scholar though you would not believe how much I’ve studied and read on the subject of human behavior/life, etc. I am so out of the ballpark here, that I just come to enjoy myself. Life is supposed to be fun, and I’m one of the funnest people you will ever not meet.

    She could acknowledge the truth that if you change yourself, you have changed the world. She failed to either see that one, or say it.

    You’re wrong about that and you know it, based on our email conversations. Either that or you don’t read for comprehension. (Roissy loves to accuse of me that, so I couldn’t resist.) My biggest “complaint” here? You guys take yourselves too seriously. Really that’s the main thing, Self-importance really cracks me up and here it’s just so abundant that I can’t resist.

    I seek to contribute, learn, and challenge people.

    Me too, but my ways are quite different and here….quite ineffective unless I’m mistaken, which is okay too.

    Have a great day!

  30. Roissy, I know you were not trying to ban me out right, but as SAM pointed out; give me freedom or give me death. Socrates said the same thing basically and you would feel the same. I have a personality type that is not societally approved in women and someone is always telling me to limit myself or “tone it down”. What they don’t realize is that I AM toning it down. *smile*
