Most people at Daily Paul sux and I'm leaving forever!

These types of posts are nothing more than sociopathic attempts to lash out and harm people for daring to have differing opinions. And they NEVER actually leave!

I suggest a 1-month temp ban on all people who compose and post such "Goobye.. I Hate You and You Suck" forum topics. This would put a quick end to such unhinged and unnecessary emo rants.

It's getting old and looks kooky to outsiders...

How @bout @ D@ily P@ul Recycle Bin?

...people who desire to le@ve move themselves to the "recycle bin" to help them vent their frustr@tion. They c@n commiser@te with other diss@tisfied members until they wish to "return" to the DP society. They get three d@ys to cool off before dep@rture becomes perm@nent with the "empty recycle bin" option. Just thinkin'.

Is..

your "a" key broken? :p

This Post Is the FINAL STRAW FOR ME! BYE!

Okay, I'm back.

Haha...

Why are so many here concerned over what others post, when they contribute little or nothing themselves?
Why do so many concern themselves with looking "Kooky" to others- at thi point?
KOOKY? Strange choice of word, I think.

Many seem to be trying to control where the DP is headed.
How ironic- and ""UNPAUL.
Theyve learned NOTHING.

What empirical basis do you have for correlating "those concerned over what others post" with those who "contribute little or nothing"? Do people who don't generally care about what others post contribute more on average? How did you quantitatively measure this?

Perhaps it's just me, but I find that people going into fits of rage and cursing and personal attacks and loud declarations of breaking off social contact to be quite unhinged. Psychologists term it as "antisocial disorder" and "sociopathy" and prompts them to consider prescribing mood altering medications. Most people make efforts to avoid encounters with such persons.

"Kooky" is a colloquial form of "unhinged".

The "I hate everybody and i'm leaving!" posts nearly always break rules #1, 5 and 7 of Daily Paul's behavior guidelines.

That's funny...

at least two persons guilty of said "crime" have commented on this forum topic.

I was going to link you to their rants but I don't want to give them any more attention...

Im sorry? ""Guilty?
"crimes"??????

lol

oh thank you for the mere idea of posing the offending links- but not acually doing so.

what a joke.

Well...

I encapsulated "crime" in quotations marks to indicate a degree of metaphoria (many grammarians object to this practice but it works for me)

MET'APHOR, n. [Gr. to transfer, over, to carry.] A short similitude; a similitude reduced to a single word; or a word expressing similitude without the signs of comparison. Thus "that man is a fox," is a metaphor; but "that man is like a fox," is a similitude or comparison. So when I say, "the soldiers fought like lions," I use a similitude. In metaphor, the similitude is contained in the name; a man is a fox, means, a man is as crafty as a fox. - Webster's 1828

"Crime is the breaking of rules or laws" - wikipedia

The offending type posts that are the subject of this forum topic break rules #1, 5 and 7 of the "Daily Paul rules" as listed below:

---------------
Rules

1) No profane, disrespectful or divisive language
...
5) Do not engage in flame wars, PERSONAL ATTACKS on other members, incite or encourage violence, post spam or advertisements.
...
7) No Assholes™
...
"Failure to follow these rules can result in banishment from the community."
----------------

I mention a "degree" of metaphor since "crime" in the vulgar sense usually refers to a political context. The offending behavior is a true crime in that it is antisocial and therefore a crime against society and culture. Notice the last line prescribes a punishment for the listed offenses(crime).

You said:

"oh thank you for the mere idea of posing the offending links- but not acually doing so."

You're welcome. I don't find people calling others 50 forms of the word "excrement", flinging the "f word" recklessly and spewing other various ad hominems out of pure spite very pleasant either. And since Nystrom made rules against it, he doesn't care to see it either. I'm glad we are both appreciative of not having to view such cretan diatribes further. :)

You said:

"what a joke."

joke - something not to be taken seriously

On your last point I disagree. Personal attacks, cursing meant as a jab at others and generally being an asshole breaks down social cohesion and hinders our ability to present a unified message of peace, love, small government and sound money. I consider it a significantly serious matter.

Actually,

It's like a false conspiracy theory, cause they always come back! Bwahahaha! Funny post!

actually alot dont come

actually alot dont come back... mises.org has a great blog for anarchists that will use the exact same arguments you use against socialists as we will against, you socialists. The constitution is a socialist document. Public courts, military, law, post office... socialism.. but unfortunately you will die thinking you are fighting for freedom but only to die fighting for a lighter form of socialism

Never thought of it that way...

...but wouldn't it be worse if they got rid of it or made a new one? Seems as though it at least limits things or no? I know many of late amendments aren't good. What then were the forefathers intent? Surely they wouldn't have thought things would be like they are today?

Mises was...

a MINARCHIST... not an anarchist. Same for Nock and Hayek and others. Anarchists are late-comers and a minority among austrian libertarians.

And even Rothbard, who started out as an Old Righist and veered back towards that in his later years, was a big proponent of making a coalition with the Old Right and paleocons. Guess who founded the Taft Club? ---> Rothbard.

Nock

Weebles, are you sure about Nock? I was under the strong impression that he was anarchist. He wrote a book called Our Enemy the State and an essay called The Anarchist's Progress. His writings strongly influenced me to consider anarchism as a rational and useful philosophy.

Nock, though sometimes

Nock, though sometimes referring himself as an anarchist, wasn’t in practice. He was, rather, a radical decentralist. “Our Enemy the State,” a great book, distinguished between “state” and “government,” the latter being one that acted in a negative manner, whereas the former came through conquest and confiscation.
Here’s an article on Nock and his book, “Our Enemy the State”: http://fff.org/explore-freedom/article/revisiting-libertaria...

malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke

I know there's argument

over whether he was or wasn't anarchist. I'm in the "he was" camp lol. In the book OETS, he used tribal society as an example of "govt." as opposed to the state...small communities with voluntary members -- more similar to homeowner's associations than the state...which imo makes Nock's idea of "govt." compatible with anarchy. He called himself a philosophical anarchist.

When dealing with Nock, and

When dealing with Nock, and I’m no expert, it’s important to remember his distinction between “state” and “government.” I suppose one can claim he was an anarchist, though he did believe in taxation, though at the local level. He admired Jefferson, and Jefferson exposited a system of government that was a sort of ward republic, where power resided at the very local level, leaving few powers to the higher governmental structure.

malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke

Nor am I

an expert on Nock. I respect your opinion and wouldn't insist I'm right about this. But throughout OETS and many of his essays on the US govt. and foreign govt.s, Nock points out how the state (the higher governmental structure) has always and will always aggrandize more power to itself which indicates a belief that minarchy or "limited govt." is an impossibility. I get the impression that Nock differentiated between "govt." and the state due to the general hysterical reaction of most people to the idea of anarchy. He had to explain that "rules" and peaceful communities could exist without the state...iow, you can have "govt." under anarchy. If he hadn't done so, his anti-state book would've been dismissed out of hand.

Oops...

Nozick! I always dyslexify Nock and Nozick. :>

Especially early and squirrelly in the morn when my caffeine levels are running low.

I upvoted your correction. Thanks... :)

I Could Be Wrong But

I have a feeling that most of the people that make those kinds of comments happen to be emotional teenagers still half figuring out what the message of liberty ( or "waking up") is all about. I could be wrong but it's just what I assume most of the time when I read those kinds of posts.

Emotional Teenagers! LOVED It!

..And we must remember that we are living in the age of:
"PERPETUAL ADOLESCENCE"...as outlined by John Taylor Gatto.

Guess some people never grow up...LOL!

Nice Point!

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

not to mention

the feminisation of the American male.

What things are you referring

What things are you referring to when you say 'feminization'?

You hit on another good subject there!

Someone was talking about BPA(estrogen compound) in plastic that does such a thing in which some companies are offering VPA free products. And I guess this was something Alex Jones talked about 10 yrs. ago that people thought he was nuts and in present studies have been proved otherwise. Don't know if anyone ever covered that here. Kind of interesting.

Not sure

about people thinking AJ was nuts for talking about feminization of men. I remember hearing about all that even back in the Bush Sr. days, and I was just a kid back then.

Even now, I don't often find many people who'd disagree that there is an effort being made to feminize men. Even many of the MSM worshipers I talk with see it. One thing I notice, is that almost all of these "bois" are being raised by single mothers.

It kind of reminds me of the JFK issue, in the respect that they're both treated as "fringe" topics by many people (even here), despite both being widely acknowledged by the public.
