Not surprising at all. What has Israel done in the last 20 years to deserve the level of US support it gets?

Spammer, troll, idiot posting disgusting images, more of the same, but now a new poster.

He was muted a few hours ago, shortly after whenever he made his most recent post.  Nym will presumably ban the account whenever he logs in next.

Could it be possible that we try to actually find this craphead who is doing this?

I don't know if this is still more Atheist2006 shenanigans or not.  We do know Atheist's real identity, but not sure if this is the same guy.  It's the same guy as "James Roberts" (the account from a few days ago that was doing the same thing), but that's as much as I know.

In any case, if we did know, what are you suggesting as a remedy?  Angry mob with pitchforks?


How about actually deleting his disgusting pics?

Maybe the whole idea that we can make vast judgments about people's character based on what they watch is dumb or something.

Also the idea that only little girls can watch My Little Pony is sexist, and the idea that adults can't watch and enjoy kids cartoons is the reason most children's television sucks.

"I don't see the appeal of it, so it should be banned!"

I'm surprised BRTD isn't saying heavy metal should be banned.

Obviously banning heavy metal would be quite problematic, but so is the music itself with the frequent promotion of Neo-Nazism and brutal misogyny, and in causing teen suicides.

My god. You've LITERALLY gone to Jerry Falwell levels of fantasia in your demonizing heavy metal.

LOL. I think it's safe to say if he knew of it while he was alive Falwell would not have approved of SJW hardcore, or anything that met the standard of "all liberal, all the time".

No (not an austerian hack)

I for one strongly believe in pensions for 45 year olds and tax exemptions for random islands.

For all the problems with those things, how much of the Greek debt do they make up? Greece has plenty of problems with corruption and featherbedding, but this kind of reminds me of how King mocks people who think you can balance the US budget by cutting Congressional salaries.

He wasn't talking about Dubya (who I agree is pretty clearly among the 10 worst), he was talking about George Herbert Walker Bush, former CIA director, Reagan's veep, and President from 1989-1993, after upsetting Ron Paul's Libertarian ticket in the 1988 election.
113  About this Site / The Atlas / Re: The context of the term "Trending" on: June 29, 2015, 10:35:59 pm
It's the swing in comparison to the national average. So for example:

If a county had a D+2 swing but the country had an R+3 swing, it has a D+5 trend. But if the country had a D+3 swing, it's actually  an R+1 trend.

He was definitely banned. He made a return a couple years later, and Nym banned him not too long afterwards.

Blast from the past time, if anyone remembers, J. J. made the single worst argument against gay marriage ever on the forum, and that's including Wulfric. In a nutshell: It can't be allowed because it'll make it easier to commit pension fraud and allow people to marry their parents to do so:

So how widespread do you expect this to be now that it's the rule everywhere in the US?

Someone rather undeserving takes the top spot. I think people have forgot all his MRA nonsense and all around stupidity.

But now...Yates. And this is a pretty damn clear HP vote. For those unfamiliar, he's the one who claimed to be dying of a brain tumor, was proven to be a hoax, and then returned and was promptly banned.

"The Group" never gets old. It's easily a top 10 Atlas post.
118  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of church sermons that resemble Upworthy videos on: June 28, 2015, 10:47:33 pm
So today, I think the ultimate in this was achieved, in that the speaker, a very cute 20something girl, not only gave a sermon frequently touching on a very Upworthy-esque topic (her struggle with an eating disorder), and even had a format similar to the type of TED talks Upworthy likes to highlight, starting out talking tearfully about something a homeless Romanian guy told her while she was studying in Spain during college and then leading up to that, but that it was also in a spoken format that greatly resembled Tweed's "The Group" post, an obvious Atlas top 10 post. If you're not familiar:

ok, Inks, I won't curse you out.  just don't do that anymore.  because you want the numbers to look a certain way.  we all do.  but hey, it doesn't work out like that.  let me tell you a story, Inks.  back in the summer I hung out with this group.  we called it, The Group.  we hung out from mid-afternoon everyday to past midnight.  but then this girl came in.  well, she was there anyway, but she ed sh**t up hardcore.  and one of my friends was in love with her, but it was painfully obviously he'd never get with her.  then another of my friends fell in love with her around August 10th.  and she actually liked him.  but there was a problem.  my two friends that were in love with the same girl, they had been best friends forever.  literally.  so the friend that.  oh who cares.  the point is, it ed sh**t up.  and now The Group is no longer.  and I've tried to wink towards my past, but winking towards it doesn't work.  I've become obsessed with it.  and I want The Group back, but it's no longer.  I want the numbers to look a certain way.  but they don't.  sorry Inks.  it happens.  so don't mess with my entries and I won't mess with yours.  it's better that way.

So basically imagine lots of that, with a lot of Jesus and God reference scattered throughout as well. Very rambling, not at all prepped (no notes), obviously not rehearsed...and thus perfect. She even used the phrase "The Group" referring to her college dance team she was a part of. So lots of talking with her sobbing and choking back tears half the time, and then just pointing out how Jesus healed her of all her pain and freed her of all her chains and how Jesus can conquer all. It was so great I actually stopped hacking the church portal in Ingress because I was so intrigued. We may have achieved peak hipster Christianity, and it is WONDERFUL.

120  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Dammit, why can't I hate pop stars now like I did in high school? on: June 28, 2015, 10:16:15 pm
I don't mean in regards to their music, because that's just as bad as the days of Britney Spears, but I realized I usually have the opinion that while their music sucks they still seem to be good personally (and of course hot.) Like Katy Perry, obviously she's way hot, and she supported Obama twice and has said all sorts of positive things about teh gays. Her music sucks still, but she still seems like a really good person. And Demi Lovato, she's hot, and she's basically a hipster Christian and she had that gay pride parade video (reminded of that today because of Pride Twin Cities), so yeah she is really cool even though her music is terrible. And it's been known that Lady Gaga is really cool personally for a very long time. And even Miley Cyrus, mocked all the time for her Hannah Montana stuff, is now a liberal who said wonderful things about teh gays and apparently supported Occupy Wall Street.

It's weird and confusing.

Quote
Mine eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the Lord,
She is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored,
She hath loosed Her fateful lightning
of Her terrible swift sword,
Her truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

I have seen Her in the watch fires
of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Her an altar
in the evening dews and damps,
I can read Her righteous sentence
in the dim and daring lamps,
Her day is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

I have read a fiery Gospel
writ in burnished rows of steel,
"As ye deal with My contemners
so with you My grace shall deal,"
Let the Hero born of woman
crush the serpent with Her heel,
Since God is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

She has sounded forth the trumpet
that shall never call retreat,
She is sitting out the hearts of men
before Her judgment seat,
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Her!
Be jubilant, my feet,
Our God is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

In the beauty of the lilies
Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom
that transfigures you and me,
As He died to make men holy
let us live to make men free,
His truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

She is coming like the glory
of the morning on the wave,
She is wisdom to the mighty
She is honor to the brave,
So the world shall be Her footstool
and the soul of wrong Her slave,
Our God is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Her truth is marching on

Much better than the original. FR.

Atheist2006 ended up with the lowest showing ever once all his fraudulent ballot stuffing accounts votes are removed. He ended up with only 4 possibly valid FF votes.

Derek/barfbag...yep HP for sure. Though honestly he wasn't much worse than many of our current right wing posters.
