Thread subjects that attract hordes of loons, haters, imbeciles
Just say the magic words "Janet's Fat" and summon the biggest loon of all.
Janet, Madonna, Anderson Cooper, abortion, New York City, top/bottom, fat, college, William Friedkin movies (The Exorcist, Cruising, Boys In The Band), The Golden Girls, Judy Garland, circumcision
Any thread that naturally appeals to the fortysomethings...
Anything that smacks of that (apparently) forbidden topic:
Homosexuality. Especially the "sex" part.
It's like these assholes come here demanding to be reading "The Watchtower" and they shit themselves when it's "those people" daring to post.
I love you, Leopold.
Any thread that includes a post that says something like "Please don't let her/him/them be...."
Posts about tipping wait staff. It's amazing how fast the venom come out in those threads.
Trans threads, apparently. That trans people make me sad thread has been deleted.
Instant sociopath magnet.
Any criticism of Obama from the left, or from a perspective of basic human decency.
The Olive Garden, once.
Threads with illiterates like R13.
Any mention of the CIA automatically brings out the craziest of the crazies.
The Matt Bomer threads are always fairly insane, and I second everything on r2's list.
It was a typo, R16. Pull the dictionary out of your ass, you nitpicking cunt.
Any thread about women. They seem to attract heaps of of nut jobs. I think the straight sickies who lurk on here, love posting on those threads. Any poster who refers to a woman by her body parts (eg Gash) has to be a straight man. I just don't think gay men thing of women in that context. Perhaps some gay men might call them Fraus, but i dont know anyone who would refer to them by their body parts, body parts that hold no interest to us. It just has to be straight perverts with mummy issues surely. I just can't imagine, as a gay man, caring that much about women.
Age. Religion. Ethnicity.
My cat is dying.
I guess we can now add Henry Cavill
In my 10 years here, I have seen some of the most vicious, brutal, nasty threads about recipes. One poster called another poster's mother 'an ugly fat yeast-infected cunt' because he said that his mom used lemon flavoring in her pound cake instead of bits of real lemon.
Any threads about Jensen Ackles attracts the loons. And PR clean-up crews.
Pity because this guy certainly is hiding something.
You're so right R27. There's a thread at the moment about sandwiches, some of the posters have been vicious. How can anyone get that worked up about sandwiches?
R2 deserves the reward.
Superman and Streisand.
Streisand as Superman.
R27 made me LOL
Any discussion of demanding guests who actually want towels and to dig into my frozen meatballs.
R27, in that poster's defense, only Hitler would use lemon flavoring in pound cake.
[quote]One poster called another poster's mother 'an ugly fat yeast-infected cunt' because he said that his mom used lemon flavoring in her pound cake instead of bits of real lemon.
Martha never talked like that before prison.
Any criticism or even examination of some of the more radical elements of Islam such as jihad or Sharia Law always brings out the rabidly pro-Palestinian,uber politically correct, anti-free speech hypocritical Leftists screaming "bigoty! racism! intolerance! cultural & religious insensitivity!"
Of course, they never hesitate to viciously bash Christians or Christianity and to a lesser extent Jews.
Guess what? ALL religions should be questioned!
I suppose my desire for total separation of church and state makes me a loon and a hater to some.
R38, you are in the wrong room, dearie. This room is full of mirth and laughter. Go die in a grease fire.
No, R38, this is what makes you a hater and a loon:
[quote]rabidly pro-Palestinian,uber politically correct, anti-free speech hypocritical Leftists screaming "bigoty! racism! intolerance! cultural & religious insensitivity!" Of course, they never hesitate to viciously bash Christians or Christianity
This is a GAY website. Gay. Whatever you came here for - you're not about being supportive to gay people. You're just some loony, conservative, fake-jesus-freak asshole who wants to spew your bile on our gay website.
Go away. We don't want you. We don't like you. We are not here for you. If you choose to stay, you choose to take a huge ration of shit every goddamned time you vomit up the right wing garbage you're selling.
There you have it ladies and gentlemen..there you have it....
And see just how far the termites have spread...and how long and well they've dined.
R37 made me laugh out loud.
R41...You're so adorable. And predictable as hell. What's it like to have such a cliche mind?
As a gay atheist who is neither married to right OR left political ideologies I find it comical that your jejune mind goes RIGHT for the most obvious and trite assessment of my personality and motivations.
Some of you may not want me but believe me when I tell you there are plenty of others who AGREE with me and the number increases every day as more and more gay men are waking up to the realization that religious fundamentalism of ANY kind is a death sentence.
In all seriousness, though... The constant, delectable attacks against imbecilic Christians make the DL a joy to visit.
This thread certainly attracted the martyr freak at R38/42/44.
Get off your pity pot, toots.
Jews. Anything negative is instantly classified as antisemitism. Regardless of any truth or not.
You may not like the messenger sweetie...but if you have a problem with the message then perhaps the word "martyr" might me more aptly applied to YOU.
After all...I have NO intention of sacrificing myself at the altar of the PC shame trolls and anti-free speech advocates the way you seem to be tacitly endorsing and enabling.
Exactly R47. And thank you....there are VERY few subjects that should be beyond reproach or sacrosanct.
r37 gets a ww
I admit I have never clicked on Men Presenting their Holes or Revenge of the Men Presenting Their Holes.
When I went over the thread where posters detailed the medications they were on, the deranged rants made perfect sense.
Surprised no mention of 9/11 yet. Two seconds after any mention of it and 'it was the jews/CIA/lizards crowd are all over it
Jeremy Renner (though I think it's the same 2 or 3 imbecile loons who keep those threads going)
[quote]I have NO intention of sacrificing myself
[quote]I admit I have never clicked on Men Presenting their Holes or Revenge of the Men Presenting Their Holes.
You are TOTALLY missing out.
R38 is right. Gay people have no problem acknowledging Christianity as a threat to their well being yet it's a different story for Judaism and Islam. The reason it's a different story is race. Christianity as we see in America, Europe, Canada, Australia etc was developed by Europeans (white people). It's ok to be critical of white people but not non-white people, that's the message.
Anything about Jewish people and sadly now, more threads about Obama.
The all time nutter has to be the Benderson troll. An obvious middle-age female who thinks she fools everyone by calling them a "frau." And then agrees with herself in another personae in the next post. She also uses the word "loon" a lot and her sole mission is to refute anything that doesn't support her fantasies.
Anderson needs to get a restraining order against this person. Anyone who follows a celebrity's friends on twitter just to validate arguments on a website is crazy.
Also agree with threads on circumcision, race, and referencing lesbians (or women) as "gashes" or "fish."
Fibromyalgia and other threads asking for medical advice are a mixture between practical, witty, and insane. It's sad when people who have authenticated and usually display common sense offer their (wrong) advice as expert opinions.
Wish datalounge could get back to the gay again.
I've noticed that threads like "Recommmended movies from the silent era" or "Summer books 2013" don't attrack that sort of posts
R58 probably started this thread because all the Anderson Cooper threads are being deleted by webby and she no longer has an outlet to express her pathetic love/hate obsession with him. Yeah, keep pretending you're a gay man and that it isn't YOU who starts the threads you claim to dislike. Nice touch adding in the other topics to disguise your true persona as the anti-AC troll who can't stop obsessing over him.
Tig Notaro. Hatas gonna hate. Tig ignores it as she moves forward with her awesome career.
[quote]such a cliche mind
Why do so many people omit the "d" at the end of "cliche" when using it as an adjective? I'm seeing this all the time lately.
"Dolly Parton and her Scat Fetish"
"Judith Martin Has a Big Penis"
"Johnny Cash Punch-fucked Mel Tillis' rosebud For Heroin"
"Mel Gibson sucked off my blatino husbear at my daughter's batmitzvah and only left a $20 - no card."
"Look at my vegan puppy!"
I agree, R63. Another disturbing one is when people write "hypocrit."
Soap Threads. Soaps are as gay as Wizard of Oz, glory holes,blow jobs and hating Gwen " Queen of all Cunts"Paltrow. However for some odd reason, some people go nuts when they see one.
R64 I wish you were joking BUT truth is stranger than fiction!
Attractive but not terribly talented female movie stars of the forties. They seem to trigger a mental disorder in at least one troll who posts dozens of links to pictures, and argues with himself.
You'd be surprised at the bitter rows that come from those words...
Maybe they're thinking of the origin of the word, R63 - since "cliché" is a past participle in French, it also functions as an adjective. At least, that's what I think of when I see the word.
[quote]I suppose my desire for total separation of church and state makes me a loon and a hater to some.
R38, this may come as a surprise to you, but DL is neither church nor state.
[quote]The all time nutter has to be the Benderson troll. An obvious middle-age female who thinks she fools everyone by calling them a "frau." And then agrees with herself in another personae in the next post... Anderson needs to get a restraining order against this person.
AKA Anderson's Psycho Stalker. She must post from a computer and then follow up with a post from a phone to get around trolldar. She claims that anything critical of Anderson Cooper is posted by only one anti-AC person who is obsessing over him. The one with the obsession is in her mirror. She also claims that one person starts all the AC threads to trash him. (See R61) A restraining order is needed for certain, r58.
I'm laughing because R2 and R27 are completely true!
TIIC go absolutely bonkers deleting soap opera threads.
Also open relationships, r74.
[quote] Jews. Anything negative is instantly classified as antisemitism.
Guess what? If you made a negative generalization about Jews, as though it applied to every Jew in the world, it was correctly classified as antisemitism.
China and its people.
If you dare make the slightest criticism, his supporters yelk "Freeper, libertarian, Republican, etc.
Of course with realistic and traditional definitions of political positions completely destroyed, thank you Fox News, anything to the left of Genghis Kahn being socialist, e.g., it's hard to blame posters for not being able to distinguish political positions.
The $18 dollar posting fee here.
R71, you aren't fooling anyone. R71 is the crazed, obsessed anti-AC troll who hates herself because she can't stop thinking about him so she starts all these threads pretending to be someone she's not. Get help lunatic.
It's DL, OP. The question should be 'thread subjects that DON'T attract hordes of loons, haters, imbeciles'
England (you don't have an empire any more you cunts fuck off even though you had an all-black ex slave regiment that fought George Washington in Manhatten)
Who can forget the Hobbits and the Prancng Pony?
America- heal the world, make it a better place. For you and for me, and the en-tire human race.
"...I have NO intention of sacrificing myself at the altar of the PC shame trolls and anti-free speech advocates the way you seem to be tacitly endorsing and enabling."
That's funny, because the right-wingers who bitch about "PC" are usually people like Sarah Palin who don't even know what free speech is. They think if you criticize them, you are taking away their right to free speech. Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from criticism, dummy.
R85. "Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from criticism"
Duh, asshole. And that's what I want to protect...the freedom to examine,criticize,censure and yes, even RIDICULE any belief system that runs counter to our First Amendment protection of free speech. Many free speech advocates,atheists,agnostics and people who merely just love our Constitution and the freedoms it guarantees and who resist cowing to any ideology (including political correctness)are becoming increasingly aware of the growing,stealth threat of religious fundamentalism of ALL kinds working its way into our public discourse. And they are finally speaking out.
Try expanding your understanding about the world we live in....this fight is SO far above the same tired-ass right wing,left wing paradigms that only serve to distract us from the MOST important concerns we face.
R61 and R71,
No matter how much you try to spin your fantasies in a way that you think will endear yourself to the AC crowd, it's not going to happen. Anderson Cooper will never befriend someone like you who is so obsessed with him and his relationships. He probably lives in fear of you actually making contact with him.
And while many of us old-time DLers believe he used to visit and occasionally post here, there are no signs of him now. Maybe he got scared away.
Many people have differing views of Anderson. Pretending that there are only one or two people in all of DL that hate him is ridiculous. In fact, you call people "haters" just because they don't post about him as though he is some sort demi-god with perfect personal relationships.
Criticism is not hate. And you take it so personally when he is criticized it is obviously an unhealthy obsession for you.
Anderson is a decent guy and used to be a credible journalist. He was attractive, witty, and droll and seem to love his job. He lost respect from a lot of people by favoring conservatives on his "fair" news show, denying his gayness, and acting ashamed of Ben Maisani.
I would love to see him do some great journalism work. I have faith that he'll do well-researched and in depth stories again instead on focusing on celebrities and inane aspects of natural disaster news. That's why I click on AC threads.
But I guess we'll never have a reasonable discussion about this on DL because of you and your compulsive need to "prove" he's the perfect lover. What purpose does this serve for you? Did you start this thread? "Loons" "haters" and "frau" are your favorite words. You can't even disguise yourself in different posts.
I wish datalounge would have forums like a fan forum, politics, dining, gossip, etc. That way we could know in advance what sturm und drang we're getting into before we open a thread. Leave the trolls to battle it out on their own threads.
I'd also like to see the racist and anti- semitic posts (not the threads) deleted.
I love debate and pointless bitchery. But fan trolls and racists make this site a sad replica of what it used to be. And no one listens to people with real gossip, anymore.
R87 gets the Spice Girls award for this week for endlessly stupid babble.
Exactly R88. What a nut!
I think R87 is tremendous!
As of late, the Henry Cavill threads take the cake. Earlier this year, the Harry Styles/Nick Grimshaw freaks had a field day, along with the rapidly disappearing "Robsten" fangurls.
Hater-thread catnip: life in NYC, life in Southern California, Texas, Florida, bisexuality (particularly in men), steam-room sex, anonymous sex in general (particularly with married men), elderly gym trolls, Anne Hathaway, Patti LuPone, Lea Michele (and "Glee" in general), doormat queens who won't leave obviously emotionally abusive men, and last but most certainly never least, the latest exploits of women, with extra brownie points if they're fat/cubefraus/Midwestern/riding public transport/name their children Madison and the like/driving minivans the wrong way up the Taconic Parkway.
Threads involving attractive murderers or terrorists. Threads involving innocent minorities getting murdered by police. Thread titles in which a race is specifically named. Threads involving disasters, terrorism, weirdos stockpiling weapons, or the death of anyone that is considered rebellious.
Racists and tinhats are annoying, faux intellectual skid marks.
[quote]Tig Notaro. Hatas gonna hate. Tig ignores it as she moves forward with her awesome career.
I researched the origin of all the Tig trolling. Her stalker has a lot of social media and suffers from occasional Tig-themed outbursts. I only knew of Tig as the cop from the Sarah Silverman Show. I am glad I'm not a tiny bit famous.
black people, race in general, bisexual men, lesbians, women in general
chain restaurants, fast food, women, suburbs
Just to clarify R77's post: Genghis was, of course, Madeline's younger brother.
Anything that gives Anglophobes a place to start shrieking. Let go of it, it's childish and ridiculous.
It looks as if Anderson Cooper's psycho stalker at R61 returned at R80 using a different computer. She always claims that threads were started just to diss her sainted idol. In her sick mind, OP of this thread hates Anderson Cooper and she thinks that's the only purpose for this thread.
[bold]Thread subjects that attract hordes of loons, haters, imbeciles
Not me personally. But I imagine that would be the expected norm over at FreeRepublic.com.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
