You have my vote of confidence, Turbo!

[-] 1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

Renneye, it's great you are supporting this!!!!

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1756) 1 year ago

We could turn this into a real nice brainstorming, idea sharing, shoot-the-shit platform, its got the name recognition already, which is the toughest part (Ive had to create this shit from scratch for people before, very very very tough).

I'll figure out who is running the site, in the meantime start putting together ideas on great interactive posts... such as.. Should Occupy Endorse Bernie? What Caused Occupy to Get Shut Down? Is Donald Trump the Devil? How Do We Reverse Our Trade Deals? etc etc etc...

Please do figure out who is running this thing, and who is paying for the server. It's ridiculous that we have no contact with those people. At anytime, this server could be taken off line, then we would lose contact with each other. Until we know who is running this thing and we establish a good rapport with him, or her, or them, we have no security that this place will last even another day.

Go for it turbo. :) That'd be great!

[-] 1 points by turbocharger (1756) 1 year ago

How do we get it opened up?

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (22777) 1 year ago

Ask Micah White. I think he's in charge of this place now. I would like it opened up for sure. I'm pretty sure everyone still here would be for that. I am sending you a PM.

[-] 1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

We have to ask the person in control of the server and software. No other way. It used to be jart (Justine Tunney), but shadz alluded a few days ago that the control had shifted hands. Not sure. Someone else might be running it now. My guess is Micah White since all the official news here is about him.

1) Unmask the puppet master 2) Politely ask puppet master to open up the forum

[-] 1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

I'm all for it, in full support of your efforts!

[-] 0 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

I'm wondering if people here still care. Even DKAtoday and shadz don't post much anymore. I always thought one of them would be the 'last man standing'. That struggleforfreedom guy used to post a lot too. Not sure what happened. Seems like people here don't care anymore.

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1756) 1 year ago

It's not that, its that things need to create new interesting aspects to maintain an audience for years over time. There's a million and one things that could be done with a site like this, with this level of name recognition.

We're all political junkies, its why we were here to begin with.

I put out some feelers, we will see what happens.

[-] 2 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

Even as he spins specious, half truths and horse-shit ... Beware The Lying Bastard above!!! See how the turd re-appears from a long absence & presumes to tell the rest of us how things are .. like we didn't fkn know already!! And the cunt thinks he can use my name in a totally false way - to lie and manipulate us!

I am of course - TOTALLY FOR Opening Up The Sign Up Page for the reasons stated by you and others & I got blocked by jart on Twitter for my efforts to engage her about the matter there. Not that I give a fck about that or her tbh - not after my previous five deletions from this forum. You too have had to suffer the same and you too persist despite petty indignities like frozen points, ''0'' and having your vote withdrawn.

Our politics may differ somewhat but I have NEVER doubted your genuine commitment to The 99%. So in short, I trust you and I do get your points about this forum. This place needs to be re-opened - to new members AND old & have the ''Stinkle Option'' frozen, BUT there has to be a mod/mods we can all trust.

I'd love to say that we don't need a mod but cunT-boy and anti-OWS elements, have form and history on the forum & will wreck it &/or try to infiltrate and troll it IF left unchecked. TrashyManque' will push for no mods but his 100+ (I personally had a list of his old monikers ... but I had to stop counting at 50!) - AND his basically shallow; apparently apolitical; substance and depth free postings on any matters that may actually impact, concern or affect The 99% - say that he obsesses about procedure alone for a purpose.

I'll never call for anyone's banning but TrashyManque' Troll-Bot etc must be kept in check by considerate mods who won't manipulate this place for their own ends. I'll do anything I can to help you and others to make the case to TPTB to re-open this place up again BUT I'll NEVER trust people who CLEARLY have no 99%/OWS agenda! Like u & others I remain committed to the forum 'cause I believe in it & The 99%!

caveat - et per aspera ad astra ...

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1756) 1 year ago

I don't think you are a conspiracy nut my friend :)

[-] 3 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

Consider closely, that a de facto ''conspiracy nut'' could also be that person who would unquestioningly accept all the versions of events and explanations of circumstances .. that emanate from The 0.01% & 0.1% ... as purveyed by their 1% lackeys, propagandists and hired help! One really would have to be a ''nut'' to accept & believe all the information and propaganda that comes from .. Corporate MSM and the Oligarchy behind the facades of demoCRAZY deMOCKERYcy .. that prevails today! Also fyi, consider:

ad iudicium ...

[-] -2 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

False, and it shows the flawed thinking of a conspiracy theorist as yourself.

You choose versions of events based on who is the author. So, what the 99% say is right, and what the 1% say it wrong. This is flawed. Logical fallacy.

Correct research is done by carefully looking at the evidence, not at who brought the evidence forward.

The result is you absolutely trust a goofball like Alex Jones, while you absolutely distrust the government. That my friends, is conspiracy theory nuttery.

You's a 9/11 nutter son.

[-] 3 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

You will fall for every trap set for you - won't you .. dolt?! The 99% are now mainly mind-managed by the Corporate MSM - AND the likes of YOU!! Now you have to engage with ''EDIT 1 and EDIT 2'' here on the following link .. BUT also to try to NOT - wet your knickers again, lololol!!! Et voila encore, regarde ici ...

verum ex absurdo ...

[-] -2 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

I am powerful intellectually, due to years of harsh gruelling study, but I don't mind-manage anybody. I don't have that power, nor do I wish it. I believe in a sea of plurality of thought. I do not like group think.

[-] 3 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

Really? So what was the subject of your, ''years of harsh gruelling study''?! Your sigmoid colon?!! Or did you get your head up as far up as your duodenum?!!! Just a li'l further TrashyManque' and you'll arrive at your own stomach & be able to digest your own ... conceited, over-inflated - yet hollow, echoing head!!!!

Your ''High End Intellect'' seems unacquainted with metaphor and simile too! I said .. ''mind managed by ... the likes of you''; NOT you per se - because let's face it .. you can barely manage your own (multiply split?) mind!! Finally, it's pretty ironic how your hollow 'don't do group think'' boast - sits at variance with your acceptance of THE Government "Group Think" Illusion of our time - ergo see the link above again!!!

e tenebris, lux?

[-] -1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

No subject in particular, I attack d all facets of human knowledge equally.

Well, if the likes of me can manage something, then I can also by default. You express yourself in unclear fashion. You seem to stumble from word to word in an attempt to format concise and precise ideas, but often times fail to do so. (like this time)

The expression 'the likes of you' is neither metaphor nor simile. It's a simple comparison.

[-] 2 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

So you ''attack ... all facets of human knowledge equally", do you?! Now that is in and of itself, a really interesting and revealing statement, isn't it?!! I'm seldom misunderstood by interlocutors here or in real life but I'm not surprised in the absolute slightest that you'll claim to not understand me - because just how can someone possibly understand others - who does not actually understand her/himself, right?!!!

Pull your fatuous head out of your ass for a li'l while and re-read what I said if you like but your pedantry about semantics and grammar, is trivial and devoid of substance. ANY comparison that uses the device ''like'' is a simile btw - but of course you would much rather squabble over nothing than say something!!!

Have you anything substantive to say about anything TrashyManque?! What do you really think about the GOP dingbats?!! Who do you now prefer; The Trumper or The Rubiot or are you cruisin' for Cruz?!!!

fiat lux ...

[-] -1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

I have no idea why anyone would waste time talking about the GOP, Trump, etc.. Nothing interesting there. Just garbage. Trump is obviously senile, probably mentally ill. He reminds me of your hero, Alex Jones.

[-] 3 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

Without a shadow of a doubt you know more about ''Alex Jones'' than me!!! I never heard of him before I joined this forum!! You and most of your ''million monikers'' are on a determined mission to make like a fart in an elevator - and ''occupy'' all the space available! Now go squeal ''CONspiracy Theory;'' at this ...

e tenebris, lux ...

[-] -1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

Who is trolling is in the eye of the beholder. You got banned many times just like me. Jart considers you a troll. The main difference between us is that I don't soil the forum with foul mouth language like you do. You remind me of hitgirl, another member of your Twinkle Team.

We don't need a moderator, what we need is an ignore function. That way anybody can choose to read what they want. I believe in giving people the power to choose, not have a moderator to choose for them. I don't ask my mom to hold my hand when I cross the street. With an ignore feature, a user who considers another user a troll can simply choose to ignore him or her. This is by far the best solution. If you truly cared about OWS principles and the 99%, then you wouldn't want a moderator with more power than regular users. That goes completely against the ideology of OWS.

It took jart awhile to figure out that you and the rest of the Twinkle Team were the real trolls. But, when she finally did, she blocked all of you. You had the audacity to break the forum rules and come back. Not only do you Troll with the Twinkle Team, you also troll with the conspiracy theorists breaking forum rule #2. A double whammy troll. An OWS reputation soiling machine.

[-] 1 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

Didn't read anything past the 1st line! I have better things to do!! Eat shit mthrfkr!!! + an EDIT to add -

vale ...

[-] -1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

The best way for someone like you to spend his time is to learn to think. To learn to forge a disciplined path of truth seeking. How to interpret facts, what constitutes evidence, etc... By restraining your lust for fantasy and engaging is a disciplined research approach, you will slowly leave the world of conspiracy theorists and join that of serious scholars. It's never too late to become a thinker.

[-] 2 points by ImNotMe (1488) 1 year ago

Alors .. encore avec votre petits billets-doux, n'est ce pas?!!! All you are succeeding in really showing us here TrashyManque' .. is the extent of your deranged, self-absorbed, conceited, mind!! Doofus Maximus!

When I want your advice, I will throw you a nice peanut, ok? In the meantime - you just keep doing what you do best & keep talking shit & fill up all the available space - like the fart in an elevator, that you are!!

You're saying there is nothing interesting here?

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1756) 1 year ago

As far as forums go, its like an outside event... Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd.

This is basically just a handful of us that met each other in 2011 and come in to chat and do some light hearted debated. Not exactly a flourishing atmosphere lol.

Jeremy.

[-] -1 points by fionachuckles (-375) from Fairview, NJ 1 year ago

That's because the forum is closed!
