Granger, Fishy and My EvolutionSubmitted by HuskerSkier on Tue, 09/03/2013 - 23:44
When I first became a member here one of the first names I remember seeing and respecting was Granger. Granger was always sharp and convincing and was pleasant but assertive. Fishy, on the other hand, struck me as a little crazy. Kinda the stereotypical libertarian nut job.
I don't know exactly what happened. Did Granger change??? or was I just susceptible to the tactics I notice in her current chicanery??? It seems like it is less of rational discussion, where you are understanding and interested in others opinions; and more about pumping out a message. Usual interactions take on psyops type feel where you doubt she is even considering your comments, but rather waiting for an opportunity to broadcast, again whatever her current agenda appears to be. Reminds me of how Hannity will repeat the same talking points over and over trying to drill it in your brain.
Fishy, on the other hand, was always pro-liberty and anti-state. she has been banned for a while now but just the other day I came across an old comment of hers and remember missing her. She was always posting something intriguing that I hadn't heard about, whether it was about scientists carrying on Tesla's work, gardening news, or just whatever crazy conspiracy she was coming across.
I'm sure their was ample reason for banning her, and I'm not questioning the decision, but I enjoyed the contribution she had to the site... Then I just clicked on a post titled 'If you support Assad, this is what you support Peace? NOT' which is barely even coherent, and then the brainless assertion that if you don't support Syrian action you are somehow anti-peace and probably a jew hater spurred the thought 'I miss fishy'.
