Title: Thanks for the Ignore List Idea
Post by: MH on October 01, 2017, 03:48:06 pm
Just recently added another insufferable drooling moron who can't string an idea to an explanation. 

I have 9 ignored users now on MLW

2 left wing
6 right wing
1 batshit wing

I can imagine after being a moderator for so long it's exciting to be able to use the ignore function, but if you keep hording like this the next thing you know there is nobody left to talk to. 

Just speaking from experience.  :)

The ignore function doesn't work for status updates. And you have to be logged in all the time for it to work, and I spend a lot of time in incognito mode. That's the only way I can read the New York Times without paying for it.
So the only real cure for never having to burn your eyes on the concentrated stupidity from particular posters at that site is to stay far away. I have found this one to be getting better and better and has in many ways surpassed the current state of the original. But in terms of growing this site, I don't think there are any worthwhile posters left at the old site to pillage.

+1 ignore.  This time for somebody who tells me I am supposed to back up his fucked up lies. 

Why are there so many more fucked up conservatives on MLW than liberals ?  I will grant you that the liberals I have banned are more fucked up than the conservatives though...

Since I'm always looking for balance, I'm also entertaining the suggestion from Argus that liberals are quicker to moralize.

I'll say this - morality is political, and outright rejection of another citizen's morality doesn't make for a way forward.  Watching this meta-issue moving forward...

Sigh.  After almost making it 10 years (tomorrow) from my first warning I have been warned twice and now suspended from posting, for this:

Ok, interesting.  I'll have a look.  Thanks to Conservative posters like you, it's possible to put a shape to these suggestions.

Notable that the original poster shut up when I asked him for ideas, and was left holding his pants as usual, while you came in with some lucid thoughts.  Thanks again.

Is that so bad ?  I don't get it.  My PMs aren't being responded to either.   I'm not complaining about the moderation just the lack of responsiveness.

You said "Conservative posters like you" so obviously that's a personal insult. /s

By the way, you are complaining about the moderation. You're complaining about the responsiveness. You're raising issues that others have been raising for the last several years. Let him help you by providing the response you will get in advance:

"Like it or fuck off."

More likely the comment about "holding pants" for the other poster.

Also, if moderation is driven by complaints then who is most likely to have complained?   

I'm thinking it really sucks to be the only moderator.

Another crack in the foundation at MLW has me pissed.  I hate sounding off over here about it but there's an anti-Catholic poster over there posting at will.  All the people who usually protest about the double-standard between Islam and Christianity are either stupidly oblivious or complicit, as they are not posting responses.

I can't get an official response, nor can I reply.  If I do, then my reports will be discarded.

I guess I still care.  :( 

It's frustrating - now I found posts explicitly insulting black people.  Once word gets out, the forum will become infested with kooks.  Very sad...

Become? The infiltration happened about 18 months ago, in spite of my warnings and protestations. New people drive the production of radical content, whilst long-term members are complicit in its reproduction by validating those views with support. This is all allowed under a false notion of "free speech," whereby posters are allowed to make all of the racist insane comments they want and those who criticize those views for being racist and/or insane are the ones who face disciplinary action. This is not free speech because that would require the freedom to criticize people's views.

I've made no qualms about pointing out the source of this dysfunction. The primary moderator is a conspiracy-loving anarchist. His perspective on things is why criticism is punished (protects conspiracies) and why trolls are allowed to post insane things without punishment (anarchism and conspiracy bend). If Greg was interested in a functioning forum, rather than a soapbox for racists and radicals, he would have taken the intelligent posters complaints very seriously. He didn't and there you are now, wondering wtf happened to MLW.

I would certainly concur with your comments, especially the one relating to the conspiracy loving moderator. Whenever I used to talk back to one of the whackyest over there I would get sent to the penalty box while he carried on even getting away with hurling insults toward anyone who challenged his "theories".

I think the dominance in bat-shit crazy posters on that site is because you'd have to be bat-shit crazy to keep posting there due to the horrendously shitty moderation and admin work by Sir Charles and Sir Greg.  Most sane people have left the site, because it sucks.

I like different views, even far-right or far-left or nutty views I'm fine with, but when you moderate the site & posters horribly that's when I'm out.  Keep locking threads without warning because 1 or 2 people are off-topic and I'm out, keep locking threads because 1 or 2 people are breaking the rules and I'm out.  Several other problems besides that of course.

You're starting to convince me, but the word "insidious" means harmful, or a threat.  This is the type of propaganda the Nazis deployed against the Jews, and leans towards hate-mongering.

We're not talking about hate mongering. We're talking about the Catholic church. I was IN a Catholic church yesterday for a funeral. The priest took the opportunity while there were so many unfamiliar faces to do a little preaching. He used Matthew as an example of who gets to go to paradise and who isn't, and he says to the people he's chosen to go to paradise:

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’


Is this hatemongering indoctrination? It seemed to me the message was 'be kind to one another'.

2. I would think it come well after the point of describing indoctrination practices as "insidious", whether that be criticism of progressive education or of religious groups.

1. These is a question of quality.  I would say 'insidious' is a loaded word.
2. Practices, yes.  People, no.  When it comes to a "religion" we are maybe in a gray area, somewhat.  I would say no based on anti-Semitic literature of the past implying a conspiracy.... Protocols of Zion etc.

“Insidious” ignores he value-function of religious organization and community, serving to support the social welfare of its adherents and sometimes broader society. Me, I’m an atheist. I don’t buy into the dogma. However, the role of religion is an important one beyond the metaphysical experience. That’s not to take away from the ways in which religion can be used as a tool for oppression, segregation and authoritarian control. Every system of social organization runs this risk (e.g., despotic governments, abusive corporate boards). Power can be abused. However, it’s myopic and frankly blunt thinking that chooses to conclude that religion itself should be abandoned, fought, or disregarded. The metaphor that comes to mind is throwing the baby out with the bath water.

It is absolutely and abundantly clear that schools indoctrinate children in exactly the same way as churches do. It's not a conspiracy. It's right out in the open and as in-your-face as it's possible to get. Children are taught to fear global warming, for example, in a manner that even David Suzuki would be pleased with. Children are taught that any kind of sex with anyone for any reason is good, whatever gender they or you wish to be this week, and that all of it must be absolutely respected. Children are taught any kind of violence is bad, any kind of unpleasant words are harassment, and that they must immediately report either to teachers. Which they do, btw. If a 5 year old tells another one he's a poo-poo head he'll be in the vice principle's office being taught the error of his ways. Every socialist belief is taught as fact in schools, from militarism being bad, to the need for equality (not of opportunity but of results) to the belief that all cultures are equal and none are better than others, and that any kind of judgement otherwise is 'racism'. There is simply no 'progressive' belief I'm aware of that is not taught to children day in and day out as fact and as their necessary belief system. Above all, of course, they are taught that they deserve everything to be nice, that they deserve a world in which everything they do is appreciated and applauded.

Any vice becomes a virtue taken to extremes. It produces people like Omni, who run screaming to teacher, or HR, or the human rights commission, the instant someone says something that offends them. It produces helpless, emotionally fragile snowflakes who burst into tears the moment they face adversity or challenge. It produces people like you, who are enraged at anyone who challenges your preconceptions. Taken to its ultimate conclusion it leads to re-education camps and gulags for anyone who fails to abide by the mandatory groupthink - something I believe many progressives and most SJWs would be quite happy with.

Any vice becomes a virtue taken to extremes. It produces people like Omni, who run screaming to teacher, or HR, or the human rights commission, the instant someone says something that offends them. It produces helpless, emotionally fragile snowflakes who burst into tears the moment they face adversity or challenge. It produces people like you, who are enraged at anyone who challenges your preconceptions. Taken to its ultimate conclusion it leads to re-education camps and gulags for anyone who fails to abide by the mandatory groupthink - something I believe many progressives and most SJWs would be quite happy with.

Once again you seem to have the roles reversed. We all know who does the kicking and screaming when challenged.

Is it ok if Christians teach Christian values that overlap with commonly-held community values ?

Or is it insidious ?

I think a more important question is whether or not schools should be teaching values. If not what would it look like if they didn't. When two kids get into a fight, are we to just let them go at it without any consequences because any sort of punishment would be value-normative? Why is it "progressive" values to punish students for behaving badly by being harmful to others either verbally or physically? Honestly, there's nothing rational about this discussion. It's just another example of individuals' unsubstantiated whining about "social justice warriors," or "progressives," or "liberals" [which ironically has nothing to do with "social justice" and more to do with liberty].

Indoctrination is teaching a particular set of values.

When "conservatives" (and I use quotes because I don't believe they represent all or even the majority of conservatives) complain about children being indoctrinated in schools, they're saying that they don't ascribe to the values that are being taught. Schools must teach children how to be socially functional. When people say that schools are indoctrinating kids because schools don't allow boys to be boys because they can't punch other kids, call them names, fondle the girls, etc., those people are saying that they don't want children to be given values that promote social functioning and cohesion. Those values need to be taught for a functioning society. However, there is an increasingly large contingent of people that hold an anti-social value system that isn't interested in social cohesion. They're only interested in preserving social stratification and their dominant position within those structures. They were called The Tea Party before and now we're dealing with the Alt-Right. Their views are inherently anti-social and for some reason they believe they should be seriously humoured.

Are you under the illusion that schools allowed fighting 'back in the day'? Schools had strict rules of behaviour and strict enforcement of those rules. They did not, however, see it as their mission to ensure that every student felt good about his or herself, that they be rewarded for 'trying' even if they sucked at something, that they be protected from unflattering assessments of their schoolmates (unless teacher overheard) or that they must embrace all races, religions, ethnicities, and sexual and gender orientations without preference or prejudice. They felt it was the job of the school teacher to teach English, Math, Science, Geography and History. The job of teaching a child morality was deemed to belong to family and church.

At some point, however, the progressives in education decided it was the job of the schools to teach morality - their morality, not what the parents of the child in question might consider to be proper morality. And in general, some of this is good. But it was never the school's job, and they've pushed aside core educational needs to make more room for morality teaching - or indoctrination.

Indoctrination is indoctrination regardless of whether the school or the church is doing it, and regardless of whether it is left or right.

Quote
Schools must teach children how to be socially functional.

They always taught that - through strict rules of behaviour, but now they teach it less. Now children are protected from challenges to their fragile psyches and left largely unprepared for a life of challenge.

Again, are you presuming that boys fought it out in the halls and school yards without punishment thirty or forty or fifty years ago? Or fondled girls or whatever?

Really? Progressives have been in command of schools for decades now, and teaching progressive social values for decades now. And yet you say there is an increasingly large contingent of people that hold anti-social views. Correlation is not causation of course but if what you say is true then it seems like the schools have been doing a pretty damned lousy job of teaching social values.

Post by: cybercoma on February 15, 2018, 12:30:42 pm
The job of teaching a child morality was deemed to belong to family and church.
And when they don't, then what?

Regardless, you're completely mistaken that values weren't taught in school. Values have always been taught in schools. The high school that I went to had "teach me goodness" as part of their latin motto. Is that not values?

And as far as divorcing religion and families from schools, are you under some illusion that families and churches weren't intimately involved with the running of schools, even moreso than they are today even?

Kids don't just learn values at home and never have. They spend more time in school than anywhere else. Consequently, they learn far more about social values from their interactions at school than anywhere else. I don't know what makes you think that values were never taught in school. If you're so certain that the method of teaching values in schools has changed dramatically, perhaps you might want to give empirical evidence as the drastic changes that have taken place.

In fact, I would go so far as to say indoctrination is far less today than it ever was because socially we're moving towards greater plurality in society. As a result, children aren't being indoctrinated into any particular value, as they would have been in the past (e.g., Catholic values in Catholic schools and Protestant values in public schools). They're learning to be open and accepting to people of different backgrounds because that's a basic requirement to function within a social melieu that is increasingly pluralized over time.

Which cuts to the exact issue you continue running into, SirJohn: plurality. Your complaints about indoctrination are the last gasps of an ideology that's mourning the loss of white hegemony. You don't want kids learning how to function in a pluralized society because you don't want a pluralized society. All of your points come down to the same white nationalist agenda, thinly veiled as concern about myriad other issues. This one just so happens to be "progressive indoctrination," the next thread will be "women-hating Muslims." It all comes down to the same sick ideology that thinks our society is weakened by plurality.
Title: Re: Thanks for the Ignore List Idea
Post by: SirJohn on February 15, 2018, 12:46:27 pm
And when they don't, then what?

Was society not well-ordered in the 1950s? Were crazed anti-social loons running amok in the streets? What about the 1850s? Kids used to be free range both these times, able to wander far and wide and explore their world with each other, learning how to socialize with each other as they grew up. Now they're tied to their mom's apron springs and never leave the house alone until they're well into their teens. Is this your orderly progressive society?

Quote
And as far as divorcing religion and families from schools, are you under some illusion that families and churches weren't intimately involved with the running of schools, even moreso than they are today even?

MUCH more than today. That's the point. It's bureaucrats making the decisions, most of them driven by their own ideological social beliefs. but it's not THEIR kids.

Quote
Kids don't just learn values at home and never have. They spend more time in school than anywhere else. Consequently, they learn far more about social values from their interactions at school than anywhere else.

Yes, but those interactions are now tightly policed and guided by adults at all times. There's little room for children to figure out and learn how to interact and socialize with each other free of adults because they're never free of adults.  Every time someone does or say something they don't like they can run to teacher, coach or whatever adult is watching over all they do.

Quote
I don't know what makes you think that values were never taught in school. If you're so certain that the method of teaching values in schools has changed dramatically, perhaps you might want to give empirical evidence as the drastic changes that have taken place.

What drastic changes? Other than children not being safe to leave the house alone, and according to you, a growing number of people out there with anti-social values. Where are these people coming from?

Quote

But not in schools. At any level. Diversity is a key goal of progressives except for ideological diversity, which they shun.]

If he persists in blaming you for his misfortune, the appropriate response is "womp-womp" or "Fuck your feelings."

White supremacist and conservative thinkers are so closely linked these days, mlw is indistinguishable from (eg) Stormfront.
And in real life too, the white supremacists keep bumping up against conservative leaders ...for photo bombs. Kenney, Scheer, Ford and Bernier have all been burnt.
Their 'people' need to get to know white supremacist tattoo symbols and names. Eg, if the matching tshirts say Sons of Odin, it isn't because they're a punk band. And the 'OK' hand sign in their photo bomb isn't really ok, it's a White Power sign.

I imagine MLW as being the place where right wing nuts can get together and rail against COVID precautions and lockdowns.   The virus is a hoax.  Herd immunity is the way to go.  Leftists wearing their little masks are ruining the economy.  Trudeau is like Stalin. 

Did I get that about right?

Pretty much.  I think we could just wall it up and not allow anyone else in there to improve the volume of echo...
