Aaaaaand, We’re Back

OK then.

After the recent shit show of a bunch of people who’s mothers should be slapped for not beating manners into their little asses like the rest of us decided this would be a good place to stop by and fling shit on the walls at the last couple of days, I finally had to turn comment moderation on because I didn’t have time to fuck with it.

While I was at work, trying to do my fucking job and keep the comments flowing at the same time, Good Old Cederq dropped me a line and offered to moderate comments for me while I am busy doing other things.

You know, like trying to keep a roof over my family’s head and food on the table.

Shit like that.

I was a bit hesitant at first because I didn’t know how that was going to work but on my break I broke out the phone and started digging around behind the curtain.

Lo and behold, there was an option to invite someone to be an editor.

Perfect.

I sent him the invite, he didn’t get it, I sent it again, it wouldn’t work because WordPress didn’t like the browser he was using, he downloaded a new browser and got it going and then closed the window and couldn’t get it to come back.

Kind of a rocky start but we’ll get it straightened out here shortly.

In the mean time, I have turned the comments back on.

But…

There will be no more of that Anonymous bullshit to hide behind.

You have to put a name and an Email address in to be able to comment.

As was expectedly shown by the trolls, getting a bogus Email is actually pretty damn easy.

That didn’t fool my ass and I banned them again anyway but if you don’t want to use your real name and/or Email address, just Google search for temporary or disposable Email addresses and you should be back in business in just a couple of minutes.

I hated to do that shit but I have been blogging for 15 years now and I’ll be damned if I am going to let some dumbass shit slingers fuck my site up.

Their stated intention was to get me shut down.

At least one of them left a little trail of blood in the snow for their trouble.

So anyway, the comments are open again, if it turns out to be too much hassle I can always turn off the Email requirement but in the mean time I’ll see how it goes.

Oh BTW, all the shit that got flung?

Oh yeah, I have a copy of all of it.

So here’s the deal, all I ask is people try to be civil.

DO NOT EVER, threaten to rape or kill anyone here. I will ban your ass so fast your head will spin.

I shouldn’t have to explain that but I am finding out that there are some people that just don’t have any common sense.

Don’t be That Guy.

Hopefully things will get back to normal around here, I could most certainly do without THE FUCKING DRAMA.

I HATE DRAMA.

There has been a small but growing group of Most Excellent folks swinging by here and I want to not only keep that, I want to expand on it.

If you have any suggestions or gripes, leave them in the comments. I do read every single one of them, even if I get too busy to reply to them.

At this point I would like to thank everyone for their continued support while all this bullshit went down. It will stop eventually. In the off chance they do manage to get this place shut down, the joke’s on them.

I have at least three more blogs just waiting and I will be back the same fucking day.

Kenny, Irish, Hank and several other bloggers will be notified and will pass on the link toot sweet.

Thanks again.

  1. Thank you for what you do. Thank you for the pride you have in this blog. I stop by because it gives me a sense of normalcy in this crazy world. And that crazy world is exemplified in what those trolls were saying…..HOLY CRAP what stupidity! Just a bunch of junk that made no sense or attempt at furthering the discussion along. What a bunch of school child blathering.
    Anywho, keep up the good work.

  11. Believe it or not I appreciate you too Phil. Those people give us trolls a bad name. As much as I like to make fun of the batshit crazy stuff y’all believe, I think you are an honest man who truly believes what you say. And you are the most entertaining of the right wing blogs that I read on a regular basis (Wilder could be better if he didn’t try so hard).

    I read right wing media – Bretibart, Newsmax, etc. but you and your minions give me an idea what the rank and file rwnj believes. One thing I learned from your blog that I’d never heard on right wing media is that so many of you hate big business (welcome to the club). That was a surprise given that y’all vote republican and support a fake billionaire.

    Keep up the crazy and I hope you don’t cancel me.

      • True. But if you read posts on this blog you see the very same lumping together of people you disagree with. We’re all liberal/leftist/progressive/socialist/commie/fascist etc.. Depending how you define the term I could be any of those except fascist. Fascists are always right wing. Hitler didn’t believe in socialism. He just used that term to attract working class people to his movement and then pandered to their anti-Semitism. Like today’s republicans use the fetus, the firearm, the faggot, and the foreigner as wedge issues to convince a lot of people to vote against their pocketbook and to vote for republicans.

        Cederq is correct that we are more alike than different. The similarities don’t scare me, but some of the differences are concerning. What you rarely find on left wing blogs are a longing for armed insurrection, people calling you the enemy, and fantasizing about how you will die or how many bullets it will take. We are opponents, not enemies. We do joke about how y’all are owning the libs by avoiding the vaccine and dying. Genius! https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com/

        • Beavis, my older brother could be described (by me) as a hard core liberal… I love him dearly and we talk frequently and truly enjoy each others company (brothers love trumps even ideology) even when discussing politics and the fine art of wimmins fables… that said, we both agree that he is a conservative liberal and I am a liberal conservative. What does it all mean? Your perception and beliefs change some times in a blink of a micro thought. I enjoy talking and discussions with those of a liberal slant, until… the blames and falsehoods come out, not that conservatives aren’t any different, they’re not. We are human primates, encoded to be aggressive, competitive, laying false-work (confabulation) to further oneself and tribe.

            Try this one on your brother: I consider myself a cultural conservative (a little straight laced) a social liberal (do whatever you want as long as it doesn’t affect me or anyone else) and an economic socialist (like Bernie Sanders and the Scandinavian countries).

He hates the rich no matter how they became that way and never can unnastan that wealth creates good jobs for those that seek them. I explained to him that Bidens traitor handlers crushed the keystone pipeline to ensure his good buddy Buffett, can continue to move the oil on his rail system.

    • Wrong Chutes. Wealth doesn’t create good jobs. If that were true we would be rolling in good jobs with the historically unprecedented increase in wealth over the past few years.
      Wealth is created when consumers are willing and able to spend. A little wealth is a good motivation to satisfy consumers. Big wealth means the average joe has been screwed over at the store, workplace or ballot box.
      Keystone was environmentally unsound due to the potential for leaks and the source of the oil – tar sands. It was un-American because it used eminent domain to take private property and give it to a private (foreign-owned) business. Eminent domain should only be used for public projects – highways, schools, etc..

  15. Great job Phil and Cederq! I still don’t understand the hate and rage on the left. The USA has given them everything they want and they still are angry. Also why does the left hate old people? The green energy and financial policies are hurting the working person and retirees. Here in Central Mass my electric rates are 22 cents per KW-hr, mostly because they shut down the coal and nuclear plants and replaced those with inefficient solar. My electric bill will take up a huge portion of my SS when I retire, thanks to all the “loads that should have been swallowed” leftists.

    Hammer them into the ground, let us know what we can do to help.

  20. There’s a big downside to disallowing anonymity. I think it’s important to remember that *conservatives* are more likely to be harmed by doxxing than Progressives. I retired not too long ago. so I’m not particularly concerned anymore. But, if I were 10 years younger, I would never comment on a blog with my real name or email address. I learned that lesson the hard way — I was an expert witness in a trial some years ago, and the opposing counsel pulled up a bunch of my old blog posts and comments and misrepresented their meaning at trial.

    I currently host a very small discussion group using an anonymous server (bought with bitcoin) with all of the participants using anonymous ids and anonymous email addresses (on the server, not on a commercial provider) in order to allow some people in my profession to speak freely. Many have said that if they were discovered to be conservatives, they would be fired from work. And this isn’t Aryan Brotherhood stuff; this is very run-of-the-mill center-right conservative stuff — but it will get them fired, for instance, if they as Christians speak up for traditional marriage or against abortion. I was banned from a professional mailinglist for criticizing BLM and for “mentioning my faith unecessarily.”

    So, by disallowing anonymity, you may be cutting off more conservatives than Progressives.

  25. I wonder if these asshats understand that when we read a blog and find people we agree with it makes us feel like we are not alone and that there are those who would have our backs, which means we are less likely to let the pressure build up until we have to try a cognitive realignment of there thinking process. If they get the sites we read shut down then all they are doing is throwing a match into a powder keg that will just make certain people with certain skill sets decide it’s time to raise the black flag.

    Many thanks for your dedication and thoughts, and may you continue to carry on for many, many moons.
