Subject: BS: Can we have a Permanent abuse thread
From: Nick
Date: 22 Apr 14 - 07:34 AM

Given some of the recent threads about Mudcat getting spoiled by a small minority why not have a permanent abuse thread where one could just come and do some of the following - just because you felt like it.

  • Personal abuse

  • Circular arguments

  • Endless repetition of the same point

  • No pc rules - anything goes!



Perhaps some prizes could be given for some of the following -

"Quickest successful subject change in the thread attracting more than five responses from separate mudcatters"

I used to have an acquaintance at university who was militantly left wing and was fantastic at this. A simple happy statement like "Nice day today!" would be met with "Not if you are one of the oppressed" ... and we'd be off onto his specialist subject.

"Most repeated view in a week/month/year"

"Least posts about music on a music site since 2002"

I'm sure there are many more.

Could have no rules (is that a rule? If it is feel free to ignore it). Swearing and terms of abuse are acceptable, perhaps even actively encouraged.

On other threads people could perhaps be carefully steered to the abuse thread at the point when they wanted to thread drift and pursue their personal hobby horse(s) and continue rehashing the old conversations again and again with themselves.

So a thread about (say) "What guitar strings do you use" could chug along quite happily until someone throws in a curve ball like - eg "I'd use any strings as long as they weren't made by a Welshman/midget/homosexual/republican/liberal/[insert my personal hobby horse]" to try and steer the thread onto their specialist subject. At this stage they could be given the URL to go and argue in the abuse room.

It's a thought anyway.

Even easier. See the moderators' list of people I am not allowed to swear at and give them a permathread of their own where they can discuss what they like. The title could have a warning that if you are in a demographic that The Daily M*il or Fox, (to cover both sides of the pond) blames for having the audacity to exist, you may not want to open the thread in case you are deeply offended.

If you have a view about history that doesn't accord with recent revision aimed at sanitising mistakes, you might not wish to go on it either, in case you called a liar for disagreeing with anybody subjectively called eminent.

In return, delete anything they spout that is deeply offensive in threads read by respectable decent people.

By the way, swearing at them isn't offensive. 1. They are thick skinned, they have to be to have the views they have in the first place. 2. No point in calling a spade an earth inverting horticultural implement.

In return, I'll stop questioning why we publish incitement to hatred and castigate those who refuse to see it go unchallenged.

Like shooting fish in a barrel.

I'm warming to this. Three entries in and I feel like a new person.

Bring it on. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

And I'll abuse them.

Come on in the waters lovely.

Why is that mudcat people are so fucking contrary in life?

I create a thread where we can go for it and everyone is polite and friendly. WTF?

Not like the racist UKIP moron I heard on the radio this morning.

I often wonder whether it is having too much time on ones hands is the problem. Or whether events radicalise mudcat members.

Let me pick someone at random.

Keith (hi Keith we haven't talked before) for instance used to be really polite and quiet. Didn't really engage in politics overtly and mostly posted on music subjects. Occasional comments on Ireland (but pretty muted) and occasional worried that someone was coming to bomb us all to oblivion. But generally not. Even 9/11 elicited only a one line post of sympathy.

What changed thing dramatically seems to be the 7th July 2005 bombing in London which seems to be a turning point that has made mild mannered Keith posting about one post every couple of days pre July 2005 into the quite radicalised/obsessed person who averages 11.50 posts per day now and very rarely mentions music at all.

It often strikes me as amazing that we worry about the radicalisation and change that occurs in others without noticing the circumstances that have changed ourselves.

Or perhaps you have retired from teaching and the TA (51 in 2001 if I remember from your post) now and have more time on your hand to reflect on the terrifying world we find ourselves in. Or perhaps that it reinforced your view of all the people out there who 'happily slaughter your loved ones'

If the thread keeps going I might chat about my visit to Ireland a few years ago and the huge jolt it gave to a conservatively brought up bloke who lived in London in the 70's and caused me to question pretty much everything that I believed to be true but had never really thought about.

Because I'm always happy to converse with people regardless of their views.

Even if they are wankers.

Hey Joe (where you going with that gnu in your hand?) you seem like our sort of guy as well.

I'm warming to the thought of keeping going now. I was flagging earlier with the old vitriol thing. Especially as I was struggling to be unpleasant to the visitors to the thread so far because I rather like some of them..

I think I reserve the right to swear at Keith as he told me (along with everyone else) to 'Fuck off' earlier but I might not bother. I've forgiven Dave the Gnomist as I took it as a witty aphorism. That Steve Shaw though - he was definitely bigger than 4'3" so I'm not sure I can believe anything he says now.

Moving things on a bit, Joe...

Perhaps as you placed the deleted comments here you could also post their email addresses and we could spam the shit out of them for a bit of extra sport? And if they have a web site perhaps all the good guys could get together and organise a denial of service attack in an atmosphere of jolly bonhomie? Serve the bastards right for spoiling stuff.

With apologies to Eliza and others who may think I stereotype Brits too much, let me say that this "with the blessing of Mudcat" idea seems to be a British way of thinking. Please remember that although we have many members in the British Isles, Mudcat is located in the United States. In the US, we take no responsibility for what other people say on the media we provide - in general, the speakers are the ones who are considered to be responsible, not the media that host the speakers...although radio and television stations can be fined if they fail to "bleep" out the sound when speakers say "fuck." Never could figure that out, but I guess some senator thought that saying "fuck" was a really terrible thing that might bring about the judgment of the Almighty or something....

But anyhow, Mudcat does not "bless" anything posted here.

Swearing during these disputes has become a bit of a red-herring really.
Being a great fan of Rochester's poetry and Burns's 'Merry Muses', I've never had a great problem with it and a lifetime of working on the docks and on building sites has shown me that it is largely, as Eliza describes it, "banter".
Some words I do find offensive (one in particular), not because it is "swearing" but because it is offensively sexist.
The problem I do have with is in it's overuse, which makes it ineffectual in making a point.
I believe some of the protagonists in recent arguments who are now protesting about "swearing", are using it as a defence of their own views, ad really 'protesteth too much'
Here in Ireland, a fairly common phrase used in banter is "feckin' hoor' often used in admiration - crooked politician, Charles Haughey was often referred to as "a cute feckin' hoor" by those who admired his ability as a crook.
An extremely religious elderly publican here in Clare often referred to us customers as a "bunch of feckers".
One night, she protested at a somewhat inebriated drinker' language, and when we pointed out that she called us "feckers" - she look ed puzzled and said, "I thought it meant feckless".

Agreed, Jim. I Mrs Doyle's line in "Father Ted" when refering to a lady writer she did not like.

"It's all feckin' this and feckin' that and she even uses the F word!"

When we were looking for a place to eat in Listowel I was approached by a staggering Irishman who's greeting was "Your a fuckin' Englishman aren't you?" and then proceeded to tell us how much he liked the English and offered to buy us all a drink. We declined as we only wanted a cafe but he delayed my son, around 14 at the time, and gave him a 10 punt note saying "I know your dad would not take it so you buy them all a drink". True story of harmless swearing.

I spent my apprenticeship and early working years as a miner. What I found normal then but in retrospect interesting, is that someone who was "fucking this, fucking that, fucking fuck, Ah, that's a good cup of fucking tea..." never used the F word once they left work and returned home. It seemed to be a work language, and we all tended to use it.

Reminds me of a comic on the telly recently speaking of a football match he was at where a fan stood up and shouted "Fucking Boo!"

Eliza, you are right. However, it isn't polite not to reply to something someone says to me. Hence my reply to Joe.

"harmless swearing."
I think harmful swearing is a very rare animal - expletives are usually for emphasis rather than offence - even the one I take offence to, which doesn't make it any the less sexist.
My favourite story was told by a local clergyman at a dinner with friends here
A trainee in a seminary was walking the grounds and as he climbed a stile he fell face down on the muddy ground.
He leapt up, brushing himself of as said, "Oh feck!", then paused and thought and said, "Shit, I said feck", then, "Feck, I said shit".
Then, walking off, he said, "Ah, bollocks, I didn't want to be a priest anyway".

'Swearing' can be very funny. It's only unacceptable when there's an underlying deliberate intention to insult in a cruel or racist way. I can never understand people who don't like Billy Connelly merely because he uses the 'f' word (and others) a lot. IMO he's extremely funny, and anyone who's lived in Glasgow (as I have for many years) knows that no harm is meant at all by expletives.art of everyday life.

>>Some words I do find offensive (one in particular), not because it is "swearing" but because it is offensively sexist.

Tell it to my dyslexic friend Cnut who has been banned from more forums than I can remember. It's the problem of having parents with a passion for ancient history. Big beer drinker too. (Hence the question "Firkin, Cnut?")

A friend of my wife had a young daughter who was playing upstairs when she heard what she thought was her daughter swearing inappropriately out of frustration.
"What did you say?" she shouted upstairs
"Don't worry mummy," her daughter called back innocently "I didn't say 'fuck' "

In a rather busy restaurant on holiday many years ago, my then six or seven year old youngest wouldn't eat something on his plate. I did the Dad thing and quietly but angrily through gritted teeth told him to stop showing us up and asked him why we won't eat it.

"It tastes like runny poo!" Came the loud answer followed by tears.

I started to imagine what could have happened next

"Re swearing"
A sweet little five-year-old girl living next to a building site would go off each morning and watch the men working, through the fence.
One day, one of them spotted her, brought her on to the site and they clubbed together, bought her a little pink boiler suit, a safety helmet and a tiny spade and bucket gave her a heap of sand to dig in.
At the end of the week, they presented her with a little envelope with £1 in it for her wages.
When she took it home her mother said, "That's very nice dear, will you be working there next week?"
She replied, "It all depends whether those gobshites at the builders Merchants make their delivery on time".

Now, to my simple little mind, that is a threat, which is the worst form of abuse I have seen on here. Ever.

While the issue of dealing with abuse is discussed before a mudcat parliamentary commission, a disclaimer is needed to limit liability of the mudcat .org. - to protect the tender minds if those who have been around mudcat for many years, but, could by chance enter an obviously wacky abusive thread topic, and unintentionally read materials posted by a named individual, or group, well known to get into arguments on such topics, and well known to post in a graphic manner comments that could disturb these innocents.

I just now nipped out to our public library ten minutes away. Picked some good books and then decided to go on one of their computers, as our measly 0.3 mega thingies at home is so slow. Logged in my library number, got the computer going, typed in Mudcat and...
the whole screen lit up with "ACCESS TO THIS SITE IS BARRED. REASON - PORNOGRAPHY, NOT IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR POLICY OF DECENCY AND ACCEPTABILITY!
I nearly had a fit. I read and re-read this enormous message in red, by which time the old gentleman sitting next to me was staring at it and me with a very odd look in his eye. I fetched the assistant and she too gave me an odd look. PORNOGRAPHY??????? I've been going to this library for over 30 years. She rang the Council dept and they said they'd installed a new system. I was croaking, "But it's a Folk Music and Traditions site, not PORNO!!" She said it would be rectified in 2 days. I crawled out of there red-faced and feeling like slitting my throat. I'm back home now and having a calming cup of tea. What was all that about eh? Why should Mudcat of all things be censored like that? Please somebody calm me down!!!!

Todays random term from the Urban Dictionary:

Fart Lapse

The period of time it takes between the fart and the recognition of the fart, from another person.

Useage:"Hoorah, today I got a record Fart Lapse of 21.54 seconds!"

What hurt more than anything was when I spoke to the assistant and said, "Obviously a very old lady like me who can hardly walk wouldn't be trying to access PORN!!" and she replied with a deadpan, unsmiling face, "Well....we don't know that do we?" What a cheek!! I'm still puzzling over it. It was the actual word Mudcat the computer wouldn't accept. Is there something I don't know? Is it a euphemism for something a bit rude?

A certain greyhound not a million miles from where I sit has an average fart lapse that can be measured in milliseconds.

His mongrel predecessor had a slight variation on fart lapse. If he stood up for no reason and left the room, it hit you as his arse flipped through the door.

"Possible penalties for early withdrawal." No.

As for the disclaimer "No alcohol, dogs or horses." No comment.

Ditto "It's something of a concern though that I can post a comment like 'How much damage can a government do...' and not have a response." I apologize for not answering your question sooner but I had to ponder the fact that your entire question failed to address that fact that most "governments" do not "serve one term" but actually serve many because it is still the same government no matter what party gets elected >>> they all sleep in the bed of the rich and powerful.

Droll shite I admit so let's get back to the OP.

Amos and ART... it's snowing and blowing like a banshee here so FUCK YOUSE AND YER FUCKING SANDALS AND SWEATERS. If I was anywhere near either a youse, I'd shove a snowshoe up yer ass (google snowshoe and don't post that you never heard of such you pricks) and I wouldn't give two fucks from Tuesday who got the right one and who got the left one.

I remember being quite shocked the first time I heard a girl make a sexual comment. We were talking about, of all people, Barry Manilow on whom she had a crush. Is that the right use of whom BTW? Anyway... Someone commented that she would not say no if Barry Manilow walked in with his dick hanging out. Quick as a flash she said "I would not say anything.

Surely Barry Manilow (beautifully described once as 'like looking at yourself in the back of a spoon') would have fallen over.

If you are walking forwards and some one was to attach themselves to your member then, unless they are on heels or a trolley, it would be quite tricky to make forward progress. Except if your friend was very short and was competent at walking backwards smoothly. Goodness knows what would have happened to Barry if she'd bumped into something.

Perhaps he wrote this in anticipation of the moment? If my memory serves me right he wrote -

Oh Mandy
You kissed me and stopped me from walking
But I fell anyway.
Oh, Mandy well,
You gave and I came without talking
I need you today
*sigh* Ohhhhh Mandy

I think we are getting dangerously close to libel. Probably well past in fact

I still maintain that it is very difficult to perform said act on someone when they are walking forwards. Outside of it being a health and safety nightmare I think the danger of tripping over the person is enormously high.

Scientific research published in the highly-respected Journal of the Organisation for Neurological Anthropolgy and Natural Trends in Interactional Cybernetics (ONANTIC), note a decline in right handed masturbation.

The research gives the reason for this change, matches, and therefore may be directly caused by, the shift in commonly used sources of masturbatory stimuli from paper-based (magazines as Playboy and Penthouse) to directly online-accessed or downloaded images. The effect of this, the researchers say, is that, whereas in earlier decades the left hand was sufficiently nimble-fingered to turn the pages of a magazine, more recently the right hand has in most cases become entirely occupied with manipulating the (usually by default right-hand-oriented) computer mouse. The result of this is that the left is then required to manipulate the organ.

Alright Tattie, I've decided to insult you thoroughly (only in fun, I hasten to add!!) as you're in Edinburgh. I'll be landing in Edinburgh in late August to visit my bossy sister who lives in a village near Perth. I'm going to have to practise my best Miss Jean Brodie accent (with which I spoke beautifully in the early sixties, but it's rather rusty now.) And say "Hen" and "Wee". And disguise my Englishness from the fierce Scots who are as we speak plotting independence. I'll have to avert my eyes as numerous men in silly woolly skirts walk about showing their hairy legs with skin doo-dahs stuck down their socks. And step over the drunks on the pavement while on my way to some Festival events. I'll have to listen to my nieces in their snobby Edinburgh accents being anti-English. (One of them works in Harvey Nicholls, so she's got a cheek!) And have my ears blasted with pipe music from all directions on the Royal Mile and jump out of my skin as The Gun fires at 1 o'clock. Bloody Scots!!

How can the Scots like shortbread and Black Bun and deep-fried dog poo etc? The only two things up there worth eating are haggis (if you don't go into the ingredients) and mutton pies. Their faces are pasty white covered in spots from lack of fruit and veg. and any sunshine. Dreadful, dreadful place. And I've got to go to Edinburgh in late August.

Easy Dave. You look for the mouth constantly opening and closing.

Yeah I'm no big fan of dry shortbread. Mrs Musket bakes a nice one though, cut from a roll and fairly moist as shortbread goes.

I love haggis. The scotch pie less so but wouldn't reach over one to get at the lettuce.

We like to spend our evenings in nice restaurants when up here. A bit of an expense but the rest of the holiday is rather cheap. We are staying in Speyside and some of the concoctions featuring local salmon are worth the journey. Angus steak has veins of fat running through it so even the fillet has lots of taste. Last week we were in a Fife fishing village for a few days. The local samphire with a knob of butter....

The Munro bagging isn't really a reason to be here. It's just the only way to stop me ballooning. (Had a bowl of stovies the other lunchtime. So simple, so good and despite being Scottish, not a deep fat fryer in site....

Oh Eliza, if you thought you'd got away with abusing me on 29th April, and my home city, then think again. I have been away abusing music at a Festival and the alleged wi-fi didn't work, so further abuse to BT, Virginmedia or BSkyB, whoever is responsible for not connecting. The noble judge of the Folk Band competition further abused us by saying our version of Bad Moon Rising was positively the worst he'd ever heard. I shall put it on YouTube so that you can add your abuse to his.

Even more abuse to the effing seagulls who shat all over my car!

So you are coming to Embra in August, Eliza. I was going to say please, but that would be too polite, but anyway, do make contact by permanent abuse message, then we can meet to abuse each other face-to- face. You'll know me by my Royal Stewart tartan winceyette nightie and hairy legs . Come to think of it, we'll look no more odd than the many random sights one can see during Festival Fringe .

We haven't set off yet. (We are staying in Kingussie) and waiting to see if the weather report alters. If we can't begin going up by 12.00 we shan't. And there is a 40 mile drive first.   The easy path is the choice, (I once pushed a pushchair up it!) but all the same, the weather can turn.

If it is low cloud then fine. If the summit doesn't break cloud cover then no. It is wonderful to be at a summit looking down into clouds. You must have a well marked path down though, GPS or no.

Anyway, setting off in 10 mins regardless.. if it is crap, then carry on up the great glen and a bit of shopping in Inverness. There is a Rohan shop I recall.

Ah, but Tattie, have you got the aforementioned bristly beard and moustache (ignore that pervert Dave, he obviously has a 'thing' about hairy stuff) I'd love a tartan winceyette nightie; mine is merely a feeble affair in white with flowers. I remember Embra in the sixties/ seventies cos I lived there, and worked as an auxiliary nurse during the Uni summer vacation, wiping bums in the Royal Infirmary. Went to lots of Festival and Fringe events. I was a bizarre sight myself in long hippy clothes, thick plaits with scarves woven in and a Red Indian-style band round my head with a plastic flower stuck in, thick black mascara and white lipstick. What a picture eh? But then, "Ai was in mai praim."
Can't imagine why that daft McThingy wants to go climbing up mountains in chilly mists and doing Munros etc. He's totally bonkers IMO. Stay at sea-level and go shopping Musket. Shopping is nice. Shopping is interesting.

Gnus don't understand haggis. Possibly a bit too genetically close for comfort? The meat from an anti clockwise haggis is supposed to be the best but if you bake clockwise for long enough, it has a more mature flavour.

Kingussie - that brings back some lovely memories.

When my elder son was young my wife and I went and stayed (on a recommendation - how wrong they were!) in a terrible place near Elgin. Apart from the disappointment of finding that the village that Local Hero was filmed in has no beach (because it's on the west coast), the place and food was just grimmm.

We made our apologies and left after a day and headed back to the Aviemore area and found, by chance, a place to stay in Kingussie. It was right at the end of the season and we were the only people staying in the Guest House and it soon became like staying with friends.

Having a 2 year old with us we didn't/couldn't go out which gave the guest house owners the chance to go out! They were wonderfully relaxed and dug out a selection of videos to watch and they went out for the evening telling us to help ourselves to things and having asked us to take a note of anyone who phoned or wanted to stay.

So we popped on Fawlty Towers and had a wonderfully relaxed time in comfortable and friendly surroundings. And the food was brilliant - if vast in quantity.

Enjoyable golf course too which I played with the guest house owner as he was not over taxed with visitors. And Glen Nevis at the back end of the year on a beautiful sharp autumn with all the autumnal colours is just gorgeous.

Happy memories.

We'll be heading north to Arran in a few weeks for a relax and some music and looking forward to it.

Musket, you posted your claim just 2 months after that Amnesty report, and you said the incident was not recent, so it should have been referred to in that report.
It is not because it never happened.
A sick and despicable lie.
Not abuse but a statement of fact.

Well I'm a pensioner but don't you dare come robbing me! I can still run fast in that tartan winceyette nightdress long enough to cover my hairy legs.
And let me abuse that effing bank that can't keep appointments. Oh yes, I'm totally angry, on the warpath, ready to hurl any insult you like at anyone who says they can't see us because they're on holiday/in a meeting/can't be ersed.
No idea what the last few days' posts are about, but sounds a load of abusive excrement to me.

I would change to Lloyds then Tattie. Not so much keep appointments as not be available for them at all if a yes vote. Their AGM, hosted by Edinburgh probably means they will be able to drag William Wallace to London behind their horse and cart as they up sticks.

It is abusive excrement. That's the point.

My reason for reviving this thread is to post what was written by someone two hundred years ago, actually.

See, Thomas Moore wrote a song that did not yet have its own Mudcat thread. So I started the thread, posted the song, and continued the thread with posts of parodies of the song. Which led to a lyric by the Rev. John Graham in defense of The Smiling Potatoes:

Sweet roots of Erin! we can't do without them
/ Poor Corporal Cobbett knows nothing about them...
(to be sung to the tune of Dear Creatures, We Can't Live Without Them)

Cobbett? Who he?
William Cobbett was unknown to me. A search of Mudcat threads will reveal that Cobbett and his "Rural Rides" are sacrosanct to more than one Mudcat member; good enough. But of course, not much help with the potato question. Therefore I had to find out where Cobbett stood with regard to potatoes, and so help me, I'm sorry I ever asked. It's bad enough how he feels about potatoes: that to feed them to pigs is an insult to the pig, never mind human consumption. But Cobbett's anti-potato rants, published and archived all these years, drag in his other pet peeves. That's the what of it: the how of it, his method of getting the feelings off his chest, reminds me of nothing so much as some of the Mudcat threads in the BS section.
In my next thread, some Cobbett quotes. I think this thread is a fitting home for them.

William Cobbett: "To the Editor of the Agricultural Magazine.
On the Subject of Potatoes." 1815.   Quotes.

It has become, of late years, the fashion to extol the virtues of potatoes, as it has been to admire the writings of Milton and Shakespear....it is the sacrificing of reason to fashion....it is to fashion that the potatoe owes its general cultivation and use.
If you ask me, whether fashion can possibly make a nation prefer one sort of diet to another, I ask you what it is that can make a nation admire Shakespear? What is it that can make them call him a "Divine Bard,"   nine-tenths of whose works are made up of such trash as no decent man, now-a-days, would not be ashamed, and even afraid, to put his name to? What can make an audience in London sit and hear, and even applaud, under the name of Shakespear, what they would hoot off the stage in a moment, if it came forth in any other name?....What can make them endure a ghost cap-à-pie, a prince who, for justice sake, pursues his uncle and his mother, and who stabs and old gentleman in sport, and cries out 'dead for a ducat! Dead' ? What can they find to 'delight' them in punning clowns, in ranting heroes, in sorcerers, ghosts, witches, fairies, monsters, soothsayers, dreamers; in incidents out of nature, in scenes most unnecessarily bloody?

...But, it is the same all through the work. I know of one other, and only one other, book so obscene as this; and if I were to judge from the high favour in which these two books seem to stand, I should conclude, that wild and improbable fiction, bad principles of morality and politics, obscurity in meaning, bombastical language, forced jokes, puns, and smut, were fitted to the minds of the people....

William Cobbett: from Chapter VII: Potatoes, in Part II,
A Year's Residence in the United States of America

The previous post gives excerpts only from the potato letter from 1815.
In this 1822 book, Cobbett reprints the potato letter in its entirety, and continues:

Now, observe, I never received any answer to this. Much abuse. New torrents of abuse; and, in language still more venomous than the former; for now the Milton and Shakespear men, the critical Parsons, took up the pen; and when you have an angry Priest for adversary, it is not the common viper, but the rattlesnake, that you have to guard against.

....I beg to be understood as saying nothing against the cultivation of potatoes in any place, or near any place where there are people willing to consume them at half a dollar a bushel, when wheat is two dollars a bushel. If any one will buy dirt to eat, and if one can get dirt to him with more profit than one can get wheat to him, let us supply him with dirt by all means. It is his taste to eat dirt; and, if his taste have nothing immoral in it, let him, in the name of all that is ridiculous, follow his taste....
Nor do I say, that it is filthy to eat potatoes. I do not ridicule the using of them as sauce. What I laugh at is, the idea of the use of them being a saving....
As food for cattle, sheep, or hogs, this is the worst of all the green and root crops; but, of this, I have said enough before; and therefore, I now dismiss the Potatoe with the hope, that I shall never again have to write the word, or see the thing.

Good ol' Alex Pope:

Let Sporus tremble—"What? that thing of silk,
Sporus, that mere white curd of ass's milk?
Satire or sense, alas! can Sporus feel?
Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?"
Yet let me flap this bug with gilded wings,
This painted child of dirt that stinks and stings;
Whose buzz the witty and the fair annoys,
Yet wit ne'er tastes, and beauty ne'r enjoys,
So well-bred spaniels civilly delight
In mumbling of the game they dare not bite.
Eternal smiles his emptiness betray,
As shallow streams run dimpling all the way.
Whether in florid impotence he speaks,
And, as the prompter breathes, the puppet squeaks;
Or at the ear of Eve, familiar toad,
Half froth, half venom, spits himself abroad,
In puns, or politics, or tales, or lies,
Or spite, or smut, or rhymes, or blasphemies.
His wit all see-saw, between that and this ,
Now high, now low, now Master up, now Miss,
And he himself one vile antithesis.
Amphibious thing! that acting either part,
The trifling head, or the corrupted heart,
Fop at the toilet, flatt'rer at the board,
Now trips a lady, and now struts a lord.
Eve's tempter thus the rabbins have express'd,
A cherub's face, a reptile all the rest;
Beauty that shocks you, parts that none will trust,
Wit that can creep, and pride that licks the dust.

       Not fortune's worshipper, nor fashion's fool,
Not lucre's madman, nor ambition's tool,
Not proud, nor servile, be one poet's praise,
That, if he pleas'd, he pleas'd by manly ways;
That flatt'ry, even to kings, he held a shame,
And thought a lie in verse or prose the same:
That not in fancy's maze he wander'd long,
But stoop'd to truth, and moraliz'd his song:
That not for fame, but virtue's better end,
He stood the furious foe, the timid friend,
The damning critic, half-approving wit,
The coxcomb hit, or fearing to be hit;
Laugh'd at the loss of friends he never had,
The dull, the proud, the wicked, and the mad;
The distant threats of vengeance on his head,
The blow unfelt, the tear he never shed;
The tale reviv'd, the lie so oft o'erthrown;
Th' imputed trash, and dulness not his own;
The morals blacken'd when the writings 'scape;
The libell'd person, and the pictur'd shape;
Abuse, on all he lov'd, or lov'd him, spread,
A friend in exile, or a father, dead;
The whisper, that to greatness still too near,
Perhaps, yet vibrates on his sovereign's ear:—
Welcome for thee, fair Virtue! all the past:
For thee, fair Virtue! welcome ev'n the last!

More from William Cobbett, about "Paradise Lost."

"All this, and indeed, the whole of Milton's poem, is such barbarous trash, so outrageously offensive to reason and to common sense, that one is naturally led to wonder how it can have been tolerated by a people, amongst whom astronomy, navigation and chemistry are understood. But, it is the fashion to turn up the eyes, when 'Paradise Lost' is mentioned; and if you fail herein, you want taste; you want judgment even, if you do not admire this absurd and ridiculous stuff, when, if one of your relations were to write a letter in the same strain, you would send him to a mad-house and take his estate. It is the sacrificing of reason to fashion."

from "On the Subject of Potatoes", Cobbett's Political Register, Vol 29
