And haven't we always been supposed to be in agreement that threads focused on attacking an individual member building up gigantic, solipsistic, board-destroying Private Data Dumps are wrong, wrong, wrong? You will not answer this, "American Dream".

Cowboy, slad has, or had - I hope only temporarily - succumbed to the literal madness that has engulfed the USA in the last few weeks. I hope this will pass. (She would not normally be posting spook propaganda about, for example, Russkie sabotage of the otherwise wonderfully intact US democratic system.)

If you are looking for the true "cut and paste king", someone who has in fact abused this General Discussion board shamelessly and with impunity for years now, and who is still doing it, look no further than Mister TIDS himself.

Seconded, all of it. And -- in this context -- especially the bolded bit.

General Discussion is not the place to call out a specific member for whatever reason. This is really lame and it is hurtful to be singled out. I can only speak for myself, but most here like/love SLAD. What propaganda did you have in mind?

I vote for this whole thread be removed as well.

Also you got "forums" wrong. That should be "forum's" and "propogandist" should be "propagandist".

SLAD posts a lot of stuff I think is crap, and I find my views to be increasingly at odds with whatever can be made of her own.

I fully support her and what she does here.

Mean and thoroughly unfair, cowboy. The Trump-threat put SLAD into overdrive for her own good reasons. I've never had a problem with posters who put up an abundance of stuff, or are single-minded. I don't care about 'front-page dominance'... really... don't most of us glance/choose to read or not read/scroll/go to another thread? I value SLAD a great deal, and I value American Dream as an ongoing info source. I tend to only argue with those who post shit which is patently untrue or toxic or reveals a hateful agenda. All the rest is welcome contribution for our consideration.

Be forewarned: In this letter, I will be as harsh as truth and as uncompromising as justice. Please note that many of the conclusions I'm about to draw are based on cogent and virtually incontrovertible evidence provided by a set of people who have suffered immensely on account of Winsomecowboy2. His pledge not to crush any semblance of opposition to his cuckoo nostrums is merely empty rhetoric, invoked on occasion for theatrical effect but otherwise studiously ignored. He frequently progresses into displays of authority he doesn't have. That's clear. But I want nothing more—or less—than to deal with his verbally incontinent, psychotic sentiments on a case-by-case basis. To that task I have consecrated my life and I invite you to do likewise. Winsomecowboy2's comments are often appallingly brain-damaged, sometimes merciless, frequently off-point, and occasionally out-of-touch. Nevertheless, they do tell us something important about Winsomecowboy2. They tell us that Winsomecowboy2 intends to curtail human potential.

Winsomecowboy2 warrants that advertising is the most veridical form of human communication. Sound suspicious? Disgraceful is a better word. The ultimate aim of his perceptions is to restructure society as a pyramid with Winsomecowboy2 at the top, Winsomecowboy2's winged monkeys directly underneath, licentious, stuck-up mythomaniacs beneath them, and the rest of at the bottom. This new societal structure will enable Winsomecowboy2 to evade responsibility, which makes me realize that if he feels ridiculed by all the attention my letters are bringing him, then that's just too darn bad. Winsomecowboy2's arrogance has brought this upon himself.

Winsomecowboy2 makes a living out of yahooism. I call this tactic of his “entrepreneurial yahooism”. Winsomecowboy2 and his cat's-paws have unquestionably raised entrepreneurial yahooism to a fine art by using it to produce a new generation of truculent riffraff whose opinions and prejudices, far from being enlightened and challenged, are simply legitimized. What really irks me is that he has presented us with a Hobson's choice. Either we let him steal the fruits of other people's labor or he'll arouse inter-ethnic suspicion. Please keep in mind that I want to live my life as I see fit. I can't do that while Winsomecowboy2 still has the ability to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture. To deny that even the most rigorous theoretical framework he could put forward would not leave him in the position of generalizing with the certainty to which he is prone in his policies is hubristic nonsense and political irresponsibility. It is nonsense because people who agree with his intimations are either stupid, drunk, on drugs, paid off by Winsomecowboy2, or are beggarly, biggety dishonest-types. And it is irresponsible because I want to give people more information about Winsomecowboy2, help them digest and assimilate and understand that information, and help them draw responsible conclusions from it. Here's one conclusion I indubitably hope people draw: Winsomecowboy2 recently got caught red-handed trying to impose orthodoxy and suppress dissent. Well, surprise, surprise, surprise, as Gomer Pyle would say. Let me close by reminding you that the statements I made about Winsomecowboy2 in this letter are in earnest. I will not equivocate. I will not excuse. I will not retreat a single inch. And I will be heard.

I call a protest of this thread.
It is bullshit and attacking an individual poster.

Yeah, yeah, luv you too...

I think there is a method to this e-mail madness -, the ton of chafe to weed through here. While I've personally learned to bypass most of the passionate proliteriats who pile it on, I've also learned a lot from SLAD, AD, and many more. There ain't no way I'm gonna read all their rants, but I certainly appreciate their RI input. Most of us who type here are capable of quickly discerning which posts are worthwhile or a waste of time.
