❂ Welcome to the Occupy Cabal ❂

Posted 1 year ago on June 30, 2013, 7:15 a.m. EST by jart (1147) from New York, NY

I've redesigned a little bit of the forum to look prettier and reflect the fact that we're a secret shadowy group of occupiers plotting to radically transform society by solving the issues of social and economic justice.

Let's also thank DKA for all the hard work he does moderating the forum.

Enjoy! <3

Why is the site now registered under a corporation?

THE OCCUPY SOLIDARITY NETWORK, INC.

Its kind of hard to build unity when all this strange stuff is going on and people have no clue as what the deal is. Just sayin. With the local groups everyone knows who the mods are, can go talk to them personally. No one knows anything with this, and people who are pretty spot on with their knowledge of occupy keep getting the boot.

I think its worth an open discussion.

[-] 4 points by jart (1147) from New York, NY 1 year ago

Because we were trying to create an accountable organization to handle finances in a responsible way, but the scope ended up being limited because the state postponed our filings for so long that by the time we actually had built the corporation and got all the legal stuff taken care of, the movement had already lost its thunder.

''The Medium Is The Message'' - said Marshal McLuhan, back in the day and frankly re. this ill judged forum-post, 'the message is (very) medium' and more than a li'l mediocre !!!

Prettify the logo by all means tho' pedants will always quibble any change but this forum is seeking to be the antithesis of ''Cabal'', so it is ill judged to use that loaded word !!

This forum is primarily for the information and education of Americans even though many of us are from elsewhere, so sarcasm and irony don't really play well here, lol !

Consider : "Real democracy means that important decisions affecting people's lives are made genuinely and equally by the affected people. The capitalist (& sometimes other!) organization of enterprises thus directly contradicts real democracy. Inside these corporations that dominate modern capitalism - a tiny minority -- major shareholders and the boards of directors they elect - make all key decisions affecting those below them in the corporate hierarchy, the employees. That tiny minority decides what products the corporation will produce, what technologies will be used, where production will occur, and how the corporation's net revenues will be distributed. The majority is affected, often profoundly, by all those decisions, but it does not participate in making them." was your excellent and telling excerpt from :

Further imo, any ''moderation'' is best done subtly, unobtrusively and should barely be noticed let alone become an issue in and of itself. Trolls and individualistic insurgents have been a problem here from the get go but give them enough rope and they start swinging (and pissing) in the wind so leave the shallow, vacuous, 'libertopian empty-heads' and pro-corporate shills to do their worst - as we can all see them for what they are and deal with their b-s ourselves. We all should meditate a li'l I think on the ancient Greek concept of the 'agon' and not lose sight of why most of us are actually here in the first place.

I have said too much already - no reply necessary as there are bigger fish to fry. Solidarity @ us all, as we ''struggleforfreedom'' and await ''therising'' towards a ''beautifulworld'' for all - everywhere & asap ~*~

What? You don't moderate?

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (20944) 1 year ago

DKA, you know I don't moderate. I have never been a moderator.

Perhaps I should have said that the secret cabal is the management/moderation of this forum. I have no problem with the people who actually spend a great deal of time here posting and trying to moderate this very difficult forum that is constantly under attack. I am only aware of two moderators one of which is you, but even that I am not completely sure of, lol. So, to me, that is the secret cabal. The rest of us, we post, and what you see is what you get. There is nothing secret about that.

[-] 2 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 1 year ago

well ... I completely understand what Jart is referring to as "a secret shadowy group.." but it's a secret .. ;)

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (28414) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

You have never told a commentor that you felt they were out of line?

Come-on - you give yourself no credit for good contributions.

The rest of us, we post, and what you see is what you get.

We "should" just be able to just post - but then there are those damnable shills. So then You I and others end up calling em out ( moderating ) on their BS.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (20944) 1 year ago

I am in no way, shape or form a moderator. I post comments which are strictly my opinion and I have no power over other posters at all. The point of the forum, in my mind, is to discuss issues. When one disagrees or doesn't like what someone says, it behooves one to say so. The same goes for the reverse. The point of posting is to get one's own message, opinions and ideas across.

Being a moderator and being a poster/contributor are two different things, I think. You may be both, but I am not.

I think moderators should be looking for people with multiple monikers, people who don't follow the rules, people who use bots, people who log in with other peoples' monikers such as when I received a PM from "beautifulworld" with the lower case L in beautiful as a capital "i." Things like that should be the moderators job. No small task, really, lol.

Of course not - much too modest - let alone too quiet and withdrawn.

I post comments which are strictly my opinion

I have noticed that

I have no power over other posters at all.

Welcome to the club.

When one disagrees or doesn't like what someone says, it behooves one to say so.

One might say - that in defense of position or disagreement with a position comes a moderation - if only of your position.

The same goes for the reverse. The point of posting is to get one's own message, opinions and ideas across.

Yep to share ones belief and to provide the reasoning therefor.

Being a moderator and being a poster/contributor are two different things, I think. You may be both, but I am not.

"but I am not" - you give yourself too little credit - I have seen you defend others - I have seen you defend an others position against attack. That is moderation - even if you did it because you felt it needed to be said - that "is" moderation.

I think moderators should be looking for people with multiple monikers, people who don't follow the rules, people who use bots, people who log in with other peoples' monikers such as when I received a PM from "beautifulworld" with the lower case L in beautiful as a capital "i."

Absolutely - and you - whether you realize it or not have done these things.

You're messed up man! You're a mod and you just love to ban people who don't like Obama. That's why you banned Odin and PK. beautifulworld ain't nothing like you. You're a power hungry Obama apologist. You should be ashamed of yourself.

In my humble opinion..... The new title is a poor choice for a new title, considering the entire site originated with the concept of resisting Wall Street Corruption, not becoming some "secret organization" based on some ancient language.

It's called irony! We're actually the opposite of a cabal because we do our organizing and discussion here in plain sight, out in the open, for any member of the public to see or participate in :)

[-] 2 points by FawkesNews (1290) 1 year ago

I am honored to receive such a rare response from you.

May I suggest the term "noncabal" or "uncabal".

Clearly, my mastery of the obvious failed me the moment my humor lapsed.

[+] -4 points by titto (-11) 1 year ago

Come on man! We both know that ain't true. This forum don't have nothing to do with Occupy. Occupy events aren't planned here. Plans are made behind the scenes. There ain't no Occupy organization here at all. What's on here ain't nothing but partisan politics. Damn, the moderator banned a great anarchist, PeterKropotkin, cause he wasn't jiving with the moderator's love of the democrats. This place is censorship hell. It just promotes the idea that Marxists' love censorship. Ain't nothing good for Occupy that comes from this place. It's a false advertisement for the movement. Whoever owns this site should shut it down. It makes the real Occupy look bad. This place been co-opted by the Dems a long time ago. They go around the forum in mobs then attack anyone they claim is a republican shill. Ain't no 99% here man! Wake up!

[+] -4 points by TikiJ (-38) 1 year ago

So who banned Odin and PK

How many people have censorship power and who are they? Obviously, you are one, but I dont see you banning the radicals, so who is giving them all the boot?

Thank you. May I further that... there are no longer any secrets. Anywhere.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Precisely. Which is why the phrase "secret shadowy group" doesn't make sense. Unless it's meant to be sarcastic, but I don't know. It doesn't feel right to me. The whole thing, the semantics, the nod to DKA, it all seems to reek of Mr. Thrasy.

[-] 2 points by FawkesNews (1290) 1 year ago

I see little gain in using sarcasm here.

Insinuating "secret and shadowy" is contrary to"openly and publicly" protesting corruption in banking and government. Perhaps in a strange way there is a plan to encapsulate any involved into some sort of incrimination.

Thank you.

[-] -1 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Well, somebody's been screwing with the forum lately. Repeated downvoting of every comment in multiple threads, for one. And now this. Personally, i think somebody's fucking with us. We'll know soon enough.

[-] -2 points by DKAtoday (28414) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

I did ask jart for a picture to refresh the forum page.

[-] -2 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

I don't have a problem with the picture. It's the choice of the word 'cabal, for one. And the wording of the OP is questionable, too. Why would jart use words like " . . . secret shadowy group of occupiers plotting . . " which could easily be taken negatively? Unless the intent is to chase more people away, because that's exactly what it'll probably do.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28414) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Sense of humor as to how Media and government are treating us? Send jart a PM and ask - no use in just speculating. Is there?

Understandable - we live in trying times and it gets us all down. That is why it is better to ask an individual what is going on rather than wonder about it - that is why it is not a bother - dispelling misconceptions/misunderstandings is important - not a bother.

[-] -3 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

Getting booted doesn't bother me at all. If it did I wouldn't be here anymore. It takes 30 seconds to create a new user.

What bothers me is not be able to read what everyone is saying. That some comments are censored by you so I can't read them. I don't need you to act as my big brother. I'm an adult. I am able to decide what I want to read, and what I want to ignore.

Censorship doesn't hurt those being censored as much as the other people in society who can't read opinions on the margins. Now, people here can only read the "DKAtoday way". It's sad. I liked reading PeterKropotkin. Now I can't because you chose for me that I shouldn't be able to read him. That's because you abuse your power. You don't want to work in community. You want to decide for others. You're power hungry. Being a moderator has corrupted you.

There's no appeal here. You're the dictator, and you don't support Occupy. That's why you banned people like Odin and Peterpropotkin. In any case, I don't support the idea of having to ask for appeal. This shouldn't be run like a dictatorship with moderators controlling what can be said and not. It should be run as a community with direct democracy. This forum should represent Occupy organizational ideology.

Perhaps, you are correct, or perhaps, this forum has become a forum discussing solely "this forum".

At one point in time, this forum was a gathering/rallying point for protesters dissenting corruption in banking and politics.

You are likely correct.

Dissension of corruption, in both banking and government, has expanded into the streets of a great many countries globally. Can banking actually control the people of the world with advertising, marketing and public image? I think not.

Therefore, this forum and those within it have, either intentionally or accidentally, contributed to the resistance against against corruption... and that is good.

I assume jart and Thrasy are two completely different people, but of course you never really know on the Web. But the writing in the post sounds exactly like T's writing. And I would assume if this was a legit forum change, that picture would also be on the front page. It's not, it's only on the forum page.

[-] -3 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

Thrasy is part man, part alien, and part machine. Not a cyborg, but a triborg. An undercover agent who mastered the arts of camouflage, infiltration, and lip reading. Some conspiracy theorists claim he is a wizard programmer capable of doing anything he wants on this site. I don't know for sure. It's hard to tell. I do know he is an unparalleled genius, so you could be right. I heard he never sleeps and never eats.

Some, however, claim the picture isn't on the front page so that people can still use the login and signup functions this picture hides. This seems like a simpler explanation. Perhaps Thrasy is a simple human after all. But, that would be a boring assumption. Conspiracy theories are much more fantastic and colorful.

Well, I kind of figured 'nerl' was your newest username, T, but I didn't want to jump to any conclusions. How the hell are you, by the way?

And it seems to me, first off, the picture IS hiding the login function on this page. Used to be we could log off from the forum page. And why not just make the picture a bit thinner? Or have the login box sit on top the picture? I don't know enough about programming to know what a skilled programmer can and can't do. All I'm saying is the semantics sounds exactly like what you (or he, assuming) would write, word for word. And that, in my gut, this just doesn't feel right. A gut feeling, got it? Nothing about some grand conspiracy theory, something else you (or he) seems fixated on.

Either way, the phrase "Occupy Cabal" sucks big time. It definitely doesn't have a positive connotation, so why use it?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28414) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

BTW - I asked jart about the missing log-in box - she said it did not fit in well with the picture so she removed it till she comes-up with a better location.

It should just be taken down. As a new user, it confused the hell out of me. I thought - "What's this Occupy Cabal?" I thought this was Occupy WallStreet. I had to read all the threads in this posting to understand it. Clean straightforward sites are always the best.

  • give the login/signup it's own page... and then when anyone want's multiple accounts ... they will be allowed ... provided they donate $50 per added account for maintenance & "trouble-making" fees .... ; )
[+] -4 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

Ya, it is hiding the login/signup functions here. That's what I meant. That's why it wasn't added on the main page. Certainly, it's easy enough to program it in such a way to leave a place for that with the picture, but jart probably just slapped the image on as a joke very quickly. I would take 10 minutes to adjust the CSS properly to show the login/signup. She probably didn't want to take the time. It's probably just temporary.

Why "cabal"? She's making a joke. Being sarcastic towards those who claim this site isn't transparent. She uses the Rising Sun Flag with Japanese trees in the foreground to symbolize totalitarian imperialism. Then the word "cabal" to symbolize secrecy. She then says "Here you go, you want to know the truth, who's moderating this place? Well, it's DKAtoday. See I'm transparent!"

I'm doing good, but DKAtoday made it impossible for me to use PMs. So I can't reply to you nor Renneye. That's why I've been silent on PMs. Hope you're good. Give the message to Renneye OK. She PMed me today, but I couldn't reply.

[-] 4 points by Renneye (3856) 1 year ago

Thanks, Thras. I understand now.

Is there another website or forum that you frequent that one could find you at, if we want to get information to you, or want to discuss other matters? You may want to post that here, in case it becomes possible to ban you completely and you have no way of reaching any of us.

Your ability to PM should not have been taken away, if indeed it was taken away and not a computer glitch. Looks like you're still able to receive PMs though, so I'll get that information that we spoke about, to you, as soon as I can.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (28414) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

poor poor trashy - did jart remove Ur ability 2 B a pest on PM's? Good - Good 4 her. Now if she could only find a way 2 make Ur banishment permanent - no more sockpuppets or bots - "THAT" would B a real blessing.

Your dictator ways are destroying the forum. You're obsessed with power. It's unhealthy and anti-Occupy. You should not have banned PeterKropotkin. You should not have banned Odin. You should not censor heavily.

You should strive to create community, not to become an all powerful dictator being able to ban people like PeterPropotkin and Odin. Unlike you, I never wished for power here. I have always promoted community, hence my Bridge to the Ground, hence my idea of an open forum using anarchy. Not a forum based on totalitarianism with moderator dictators like yourself.

[-] -3 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

Anyways, you are destroying this place. You should listen, but you won't. That's fine. We'll create a new forum one day. One without dictators like you. A place which really promotes community with the use of direct democracy. In the meantime, have fun playing with your new toy. Ban and censor away. Hell, you should remove all the comments here. You're so good at that. Playing the part of big brother fits you like a glove.

It's an open forum.

"Community" can, and has changed from moment to moment.

There is no place here for an invasion of folks from theblaze, FLAKESnews, CATO or Alex Jones, for instance.

Some folks come here just to insult folks.

they need to go, as soon as possible.

[-] 0 points by garfield (8) 1 year ago

The only person on this page insulting others is DKAtoday, the moderator. He called me an idiot and a shill. I didn't see any insults from anybody else. Do you think he should go? I don't. Perhaps the community should tell him to refrain from name calling, but I don't think we should ban any voices from the people. That's anti-Occupy in my opinion.

And, what do you mean by open forum? Open in what way? Aren't all Internet forums open?

If people get banned or censored for having certain points of view, no matter what those points of view are, then it's not very open is it? I did see a lot of pages with "removed" comments. So, it's clear there's a lot of censorship here.

You may like censorship. That's fine. We are all entitled to our opinions. I personally do not like it at all. I like to be able to read all points of view. I'm an adult. I don't need a moderator to decide what I can or can't read.

To be honest, I found your accusation of imperialism through a symbol in a graphic, to be insulting, especially from a "new" user.

Perhaps DK did too?

People get banned for being jerks. Then they come back under a new nameplate and bitch about it.....incessantly. That's gone on since day one. Instead of being adults and passing off their crap on a site more conducive to that.......like Alex Jones, or the Onion or somewhere.

Lies, and accusations are not opinion, nor dissent.

They are merely lies and accusations.

If you are an adult, then act like one and apologize for your accusation of imperial intent, based on a sun beam graphic.

that's just silly.

[-] 0 points by garfieId (0) 1 year ago

I didn't mean it as an accusation. I thought it was quite clear. It's my opinion, you certainly don't have to share it. I don't think I should have to apologize for an opinion.

In any case, I'll gladly retract what you think is an accusation. So, let me rephrase my question to jart (not to you BTW).

"Jart, in my opinion the flag in your picture resembles the Rising Sun Flag and I believe it is a clear reference to it. Was this wanted? If so, why? Does Occupy have any connection with Imperial Japan? I know it used similar images which look like the Rising Sun Flag in many posters. Is this planned, an accident, or not a reference at all?

Why not make a comment on an open post? The post is about the new picture, and my question is pertaining to that picture. I'm on topic. I'm not sure what's wrong with that. Aren't we supposed to use the forum to express ourselves, ask questions, learn about Occupy, etc...?

If it's not OK to ask questions which pertain to the topic of a post, then just tell me and I won't do it again. You're the moderator, you're the boss. Whatever you say goes. I'll respect that.

Funny? Why? It is the Rising Sun Flag. Other Occupy posters have used it also, like this one: http://1000words1000days.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/OccupyLasVegas.jpg

It's a legitimate question to ask what's the relation with Occupy.

This is not the Jart that started this forum. Jart would never have congratulated a total lack of maturity nor would she have been complicit in censorship. I think this post is more of an affirmation of my suspicions. Thanks for the clarification.

  • well... it appears that all you do.... is continuously try and create every attempt you can possibly dream of... to slander. disrupt & criticize the active members of this site....

  • you attempt to make it seem as though many members agree w/ you... when in reality those many members are simply you... hiding behind one of your many accounts....

  • where are your constructive contributions here ?

[-] -1 points by AntiPoverty (-3) 1 year ago

And who am "I". Do you know? Do you care? or is everyone who disagrees or shows descent a "you"?

But the ability to put one's name behind their position is why you banned individuals long ago. This forum doesn't allow for comment by those with integrity or identity. That would stand in the way of the generalized "you" branding.

[-] 2 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 1 year ago

look AP... I don't like censorship... nor does anyone here imo.... including DKA....

  • but can't you see how the constant disruption and petty attempts to create fights is ALSO a form of censorship ? ie... keeping the productive here from focus and progress ?

  • and think about this.... what if some KKK or fascist group, etc decided to post every 5 min's here simply trying to disrupt... would you not move to ban them ?

  • I bet you would....

  • would not it be better for you and everyone else ... if you forgot about the past petty mistakes and moved forward... helping us fix the mess ?

  • I was banned also.. once... who cares?... I certainly don't ... it's a waste of my valuable time to worry about it..... let it go ; )

[-] -2 points by AntiPoverty (-3) 1 year ago

This forum is not designed to keep those types of people at bay. I have been banned when not even having been on the forum for days at a time, then coming back to find the user shadow banned while absent. Even if you are a lagit user, The original Jart did not post this thread, and a coherent conversation is not the goal of the current management. Either stop "handing" me or wake up. Whichever applies.

You're so dense. Don't you realize jart is being sarcastic with the word "cabal", the Rising Sun Flag, the Japanese trees. She's put a totalitarian imperialistic picture because many people accuse this site of being run that way. Wake up! Rising sun... hello!

You censor this place more heavily than a Chinese official on 10 cups of coffee. You banned PeterKropotkin for God's sake. One of our most fervent supporters. A true anarchist. Any why? Because he attacked your so dear Democrats.

[-] 2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 1 year ago

They've killed Fritz!

PeterKropotkin never upset me

[-] -2 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

PeterKropotkin was great. DKAtoday not so much. Just a power hungry dictator who enjoys the power of banning others.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 1 year ago

it's an old story here

continuously discussed is the moderation of this forum

as far as I am aware no one gets banned here

I'm not around here like I used to be

so I can't vouch for the present.

This is one of the few forums where open forum policy discussion is allowed

so we see a lot of it

puppets often lie about be censored here

that is not the case

or we would not be discussing that very subject now

[-] 0 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

People get banned all the time, especially now with power hungry DKAtoday at the helm.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 1 year ago

maybe on other forums

I've been banned from many forums myself

which is a reason I use my name

but the ocean of places I can post is much larger than say the democrat official sight

[-] -1 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

Just be careful. This is DKAtoday's toy now and she's power hungry. She banned PeterKropotkin who was a real occupier, a hard core anarchist. She's ready to ban anyone she doesn't like personally. She likes censorship. She likes power.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 1 year ago

I think higher structures are held by elders that may suffer future shock from the Internets

Could you believe congress finding out electronic communication could be tracked and acting all surprised ?

DKAtoday certainly is an elder, that's why she's senile.

You were always here to co-opt this forum for the Democrats. You and your partner shooz. Batman and Robin. Twinkle Brothers. Mario and Luigi. Now you're going to destroy this place with your dictator ways.

Normally I would figure U were looking in a mirror as U said that - except 4 that Democrat thing at the end. U have been doing Ur best to destroy the forum with Ur bots and puppets. Last time U had a snit U only took 2000 of my points - over 3000 this time - have U gotten more dedicated? or R U just in a bigger snit this time?

Go away and this forum will heal quickly.

[-] 0 points by nerl (-66) 1 year ago

You think jart really considers Occupy as being a Cabal? If you're right, then I'm even more worried. I don't want Occupy to be a secret organization. I want an open and transparent protest.

Quote mining doesn't lead to the truth. Your quote doesn't show what a cabal really is. Open a dictionary. Oxford is plain and simple, no nonsense:
