I will ask this here where no one will hear me... lol!Submitted by fishyculture on Thu, 12/23/2010 - 08:22
Before I ask my question, I will give my guesses:
1. The daily chemtrail thread.
2. The gardening thread.
3. Steve Parent's instructions for delegates.
OK, Question: What are the three most popular threads ever created on the DP?
I don't know how to find out, or if it can be easily determined. But recently there is much fuss about what the DP is for and who and what ought to be allowed to post here. I see it as a "sign of the times" - even the DP has lost its ability to be whatever it is at any moment, it must "be" something defined and controllable... I do not see it as a good sign, but maybe I am wrong. At the same time, I see the folks here, including Nystrom as near as I can tell, just not getting the silver thing, still. I seem to have blown it by trying to be funny, edgy and maybe win a contest, now it is too easy to portray my efforts as self serving. The ridiculous thing is that yes, it would be good for me also. It is a "WIN-WIN-WIN" if you buy silver. It is good for both of us and bad for the banksters.
So, I suppose if Ron Paul announces his candidacy, my rather unwelcome voice will be heard as "the enemy" and that is really too bad. I had the highest of hopes for the folks at the DP. I believed you all to be the most open minded, most able to "hack at the root" but now... I love you guys, just because you are alive. I insulted someone with this, but it was not intended to be insulting. I love you like my houseplants. It is not warm and fuzzy, it is just a certain awe that "Wow, that thing is alive." I miss what this place once was, and I accept that I am not a good fit here any more because of who I have become AND because of a decision to narrow the focus of this site to just politics and just unquestioning support for all that any man named "Paul" might do. It was the ability to ask any question and get feedback from real people that made this place special to me.
Now, is it really in the best interest of liberty, this site or the people who use it to eliminate the types of discussions that made this site "home" to so many of us?
