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.

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.

This is very tiring keeping up conflict and abuse when you don't really feel it. I think I'll go and get pissed and then I can pick a fight with anyone about everything - indiscriminately.

If people aren't going to come and do conflict and abuse here I'm going to have to go out into the bigger world of mudcat and find some issues (and someone/people) to get worked up about.

How do you people have the energy to keep it up day in day out?

I'm trying to choose whether I'm going to emerge from my chrysalis as a fully formed troll or as an extreme liberal.
