Some raw female screaming type emotion with or without a modicum of cuss words is also part of a good mix.Now for longevity I would recommend one of the party's have a standoff kind of sense of humor and sort of lead the emotional one along into full breakdown mode for maximum third party enjoyment .
A critter like eyelid or whatever his face wasn't much fun in the dome by reason of stupidity and he was was more interested in destroying what ever conservative cohesion there was in a thread.He saw himself as dithering force to keep the thread/conservations in total disarray and off point .
CW was much the same but much more intelligent than eyelash but then again that's easy to do .
CU maintains a far better standard of moderation than does DU, thus enabling good debate, at times. The Baal thread, which became a discussion on abortion, is a good recent example of that.
The author of the quote referenced in the OP (it is CW) is incorrect in his assessment of the reason why he was banned, which was not for derogatory comments made about Sarah Palin.
Hey CW, Fuck you. :D:p
Hamp is right, but don't know why this all has to be dragged up again. As far as our not all worshipping at the altar of Fox News or Newsmax, they're right. But no need to drag it all back up about CW or wear those little black armbands.The author of the quote referenced in the OP (it is CW) is incorrect in his assessment of the reason why he was banned, which was not for derogatory comments made about Sarah Palin
And 24 is on Fox in less than 2 hours. Need to get dinner on now so SR won't miss one minute of 24. See ya.
From what I've heard about Freak Republic, it's a lot more like DU than CU is. As to the claim that Muslims aren't allowed to post here, I don't know what the writer is talking about. That is neither a written or a de facto rule. I think lately, the ban hammer is being dropped a little too capriciously, a la DU, but CU overall has done nothing but improve in the last 3 years.
I think the creation of the 'other board' was the best thing to ever happen to CU, because by and large, it seemed to draw away the worst 1% of CU posters. We lost a few great members, but for the most part, it encompassed the following demographics: those who average a thousand posts a month and thought they were brilliant, those who questioned the patriotism of those of us who don't tow the party line, and those who had nothing to contribute besides "what's his DU name", sometimes as much as twice per thread.
The Thunderdome has been toned down a lot, which is actually a big surprise to me. I figured we would be having no end of Obama supporters dropping by to wag their new graven image in front of our noses. I guess that will pick up again later, but we've had enough awesome Thunderdome threads and trolls in the past. Kekkonen, Frankly Speaking, the RP supporters, Davocrat, Eyelids, the list is endless.
Back to the CU = DU premise - I don't buy it. I think we're pretty nice (comparatively) to 'the other side' here, and for the most part, you have to work to get banned here. And let's all not forget the biggest difference between CU and DU: "Democratic" is a political party, "conservative" is a way of life. Our spectrum of ideas here is ten times what DU's is.
