LOL! ROFL! Obama gets spanked!

A young girl at a political rally was bored. Take that Obama! Conservatives win, you lose!

LOL! ROTFLMAO!

I'm done here. All that's left now if for Obama and Rahm to commiserate.*


*If the above seems to to you to be childish, nonsensical rhetoric... you're right. But you'd be surprised how often it gets advanced.

LOL

So now you're actually extending the commiseration stage into your blog posts?

That's fantastic. I positively own this place now. I love it.

If by "own", you mean that we occasionally take the opportunity to draw attention to some of the more absurd rhetoric that we come across, then yes. Congrats on your "ownership".

LOL

ROFL

ROTFL

Audrey, Audrey, Audrey.

I don't think I've ever met anyone with a gift of drawing out that post-defeat melancoly like you do.

Get back on that horse, young douchebag! Somebody has to supply the internets with its daily dose of stupid, and I doubt CK can carry the load on her own.

Audrey II said...

I know I've never met anyone so committed to victory-via-declaring-victory chest-thumping (at least, not since junior high).

Fear not for the internet's stupidity quota going unmet, Pat. As long as you continue to spew the same kind of adolescent rhetoric that your name has become synonymous with, there will never be a shortage.

Care to address the topic of the thread?

Audrey, Audrey, Audrey.

I really have no interest in the topic of this thread -- I'm utterly indifferent to it.

But seeing as how you cared enough to offer a pale imitation of my stylings (after all, suggesting that you're "done with" something before you've actually won your victory is fairly weak) I thought I'd swing in here and remind you that you just lost.

And that you lost the time before that.

And that you lost the time before that. And so on.

You can drag that bitterness into all of your piss-poor blogposts from now on, as far as anyone cares.

All it does is remind your readers of how pathetic you are. And don't fool yourself, Audrey. They like to pretend otherwise, but they all know you are.

Audrey II said...

"I really have no interest in the topic of this thread"

Of course you don't. That's the mark of a troll, and it's one of the reasons why you're finding yourself increasingly banned from commenting on others' blogs. Frankly, I don't mind watching you continually put the rope you're given to good use.

"I thought I'd swing in here and remind you that you just lost."

All you need now is an aircraft carrier and a banner. Victory via fiat!

Patrick Ross said...

Oooh! That calls for some music!

Audrey, if you go to so much trouble to provoke somebody into swinging by to mock you, you can't sit around crying that they're a troll.

Go wipe those tears, then get a grip.

As for what you lost, Audrey, I'll just remind you that you can't seem to identify anything in that particular video that demonstrates the tea partier in question intentionally spit on Emanuel Cleaver, and that your own say-so just isn't convincing enough.

coming form a man who has an 'all points' banning of Kevron...

What? Patrick being a hypocrite? Say it ain't so!

Why on earth do you tolerate the juvenile splutterings of this nutbar, Audrey? He brings nothing whatsoever to the table except stupidity and bad manners.

Audrey II said...

You're right about his contributions, Dr.. As for why it's tolerated, the reason is multi-fold: 1) He makes good use of the rope that's given to him, and I think there's some utility to be found in allowing him continue to put his adolescent buffoonery into the public marketplace of ideas, 2) he seems intent on framing the reaction to his trolling as part of a narrative of free-speech martyrdom, and I've no interest in contributing to it, and 3) given his proclivity for sockpuppetry, maintaining a ban and/or deleting his "contributions" seems like it might be more effort than I'm willing to put into it.

On the other hand, I do find myself wondering often if the hit that I take in traffic, referrals, and actual adult dialogue is worth letting the practice continue. I've only been at this for a little over a year and am still learning the ins and outs of com-box management. I had hoped that out of sheer shame and humility, that some self-regulation might occur. Maybe it's time to reconsider things?

Dr.Dawg said...

Well, sometimes folks stay away from blogs where trolls camp out. It's not really a free speech issue, you know. Think about your site as your living-room. Do you let guests pee on the carpet?

I have only two rules at my place, not ultra-enforced: no cussin' and no trollin'. Usenet is the place for that kind of clowning around. If you don't discourage it, the signal-to-noise ratio can become unfavourable over time.

Audrey II said...

I've never been able to wholly subscribe to the living room analogy, as this place is publicly accessible. But your point about the cumulative effect is taken and something that I've spent a lot of time considering.

If you don't mind my asking, do you ban commenters outright, or simply delete individual comments that go over the line? The latter seems to me like it could be rather time consuming.

I ban trolls outright, in whose ranks I include racists and anti-Semites and folks who drop by simply to insult me or other commenters. I've been known to give warnings, which appear to be sufficient for most folks.

Sometimes the conservative commenters outnumber progressive ones at my place--I run a pretty open combox. Indeed, my ban list is actually quite short--maybe half a dozen or so.

Audrey II said...

I'm curious about how you enforce a ban. Do you just manually remove replies, or use some other method of pre-emptively preventing them?

Dr.Dawg said...

My Echo system allows me to ban by IP address (or IP range, I assume).

What system are you using? I can certainly help you make it Ross-proof.

Audrey II said...

To tell you the truth, I don't even know. It's Blogger's default comment handling. Are you familiar enough with it (and have the patience/time) to answer a few questions via email?
