Yes I saw that..
The link she posted was disgusting, and I would fully expect her, myself, or anyone else that posted that to have been banned. I would be more shocked if you hadn’t banned her.
Of course Smudge would say that, Smudge is a good guy. A while ago there was a post about a cop who was suffering because he had gotten in a car accident and how a no one was stopping to help. Most people here were laughing about the cop’s pain. Because ya know…. He is a cop. Smudge however took a lot of downvotes by pointing out that he was individual who needed help at that point.
That was around the same time there was a thread on the front page (you were gone, overseas) . It was a joke. It said something along the lines about being stuck in an elevator with a lawyer and and a snake and 2 bullets. What do you do? Well you shoot the lawyer twice of course. It’s funny Michael. Because the lawyer is bad. All lawyers. They must be shot. Twice, in case the first bullet doesn’t take. In the name of the NAP. That thread got a decent amount of upvotes and cynical comments.
Sometimes people create their own cages. Sometimes people create cages for them, but they don’t realize it. How many times was Granger downvoted simply for having pleasant conversations in other threads. Just a week or so ago her and I were talking about the new logo and Dylan, and it was a pleasant conversation and she wasn’t talking about Israel or anything upsetting, yet she still received downvotes. How many times was Granger called a troll? How many times can you be called something before you start acting like that?
People build cages for others. It makes life easier that way. This crowd builds cages all the time. They built a cage for me in the beginning so I played it. They built a cage for Granger, I knew I was playing mine, I don’t know if she knew she was playing her role in her cage or not. I eventually decided to build my own cage called the jam session. It was a great cage. Most people liked hanging out in it.
They are trying to build a cage for you. Numerous cages.
But it’s all good as long as we type the words ‘freedom’ and ‘individuality’ a lot.
I’m also not convinced in the least that OP of the Granger is floating thread was really offended by that link. Like I said, it was a disgusting link, but if he was so offended, why would he point to it in the main post where he used Granger’s name knowing it would get a lot of traffic because it had her name in it? He also won't let it die as he feels the need to remind everyone who comments of Granger's bad posting habits.
Then of course there was the charmer in there who said if Granger had been "stupid hot" like Lorde he might have been nicer to her.
I just simply cannot wait for another one of those 'Where are all the chicks?' type threads that come up every so often. A couple weeks ago there was a thread about a young girl who decided to burn her Obama shirt. Know what one of the highest upvoted comments in there was? Something about how the video would have been better had she removed all her clothes to burn them. Classy isn't it?
Misogyny, homophobia, hate, anger, gossip, violence, and caging. It's not the government that is the problem. It's individuals.
