Is there anything that marks DL as a gay site anymore?
Other than the Realjock ads. When did the "pointless bitchery" message disappear? Put back the W&W highlights.
Hell, have the first page be a big swinging dick. I think more right wingers and straight people in general are ending up here because they don't get this is a place for the gays.

DL as a gay site died out several years ago. Now it's an elementary school playground full of shrieking, badly-behaved children.

We can save it by posting cock shots in all threads.

They can't put back W&W because people learned how to game the system and put idiotic rightwing and racist shit on the sidebar.
I do think big hard cocks need to be mandatory on all threads, though, especially political ones.

They really need to do away with "W&W" entirely, as I see a lot of posters WWing their own posts, nanoseconds after posting. (You're not fooling anyone, ladies.) Overall, the content here is nowhere near as genuinely witty, inventive, and transgressive as it was a decade or so ago. It's just not.
And they should bring back red tags for the more offensive trolls (like racists and misogynists). Public shaming is hugely undervalued, IMHO.
|by Anonymous||reply 9||09/15/2020|
WW just means "like" now, and yeah, considering the trolls have figured out a way to give themselves 85 WWs for saying alt-right QAnon crap, I think it's time to retire it. I think the system credits posters who get a lot of WWs so that means even if they get FFed a lot, all their self-given WWs outweigh it.

Even the the most straight woman who is like Kinsey -6 is not as enthusiastic about a throbbing dick as a Kinsey 3 bisexual man. Instead of dick pics we should flood DL with ass and hole pics.

You're joking, right? There's a subset of straight women who LOVE gay porn. They're the only ones who are likely to find the DL and stick around, because the OP's premise is utterly false. There is no mistaking that this is a gay site just from the thread titles alone.
I'm charmed by the naive people who believe there are no gay right-wingers, so the right-wing threads must mean an invasion by straight trolls.

R30, it has nothing to do with Playgirl or a majority of anybody. I was responding to the suggestion that gay porn would drive off straight women. It will drive off a few, but any woman hanging out at the DL is already, of necessity, porn-tolerant. Really gross gay porn might work for your purpose, but it will also drive off many gay men.
Honestly, I don't see why it matters in most threads. Looking at the recent threads right now, I see very few where women could not have interesting contributions. Do you think they can't have worthwhile comments on Patsy Cline's death, English grammar and usage, Agatha Christie adaptations, or celebrities making a comeback?

Disagree. If there are politicians out there who are anti-gay and working toward laws that hurt gays, then DL is the place to post. If you don't like to talk politics (understandable), then don't click. (Ignore function doesn't work.)

R41, this is a gay gossip site, not a political site. It's supposed to be gay, fun and bitchy, not lesbian depressing. There's plenty of depressing activist sites out there if anyone is interested. It doesn't belong everywhere in the gay universe.

I love the political threads - it makes me feel like I have friends and I am not alone. I am increasingly uneasy over how many people in my life - landlord, some co-workers, some neighbors and old friends have become rabid Trumpers - it is a relief to come here and make fun of Trump..... That doesn’t mean I don’t love making fun of Joan van Ark’s plastic surgery, quoting Valley of the Dolls, talking about what books I’m reading, dialing the telephone with my pencil and dining Once Around The Garden ..... I also look forward to the Company photo at Christmastime.

The best thing about this site is the lack of censorship.
The worst thing about this site is the propensity of "anti-fascists" calling for censorship of other opinions than their own, and labeling everyone "trolls“, or "boris".

Andy Towle is a hack. When he wrote that book about the 80s, he made fun of Soleil Moon Frye getting a boob job at 16. What he failed to mention is that her condition that caused her to need such a boob job actually had a name that I do not remember.

The political and race-baiting threads haven't completely destroyed Datalounge. There are still some great threads and discussions that pop up.
I also enjoy the eldergay soap threads. I enjoy the threads which celebrate Hollywood royalty, like the current one about Jane Fonda vs. Barbra Streisand. And although I have been a lifelong fan of Madonna's, I enjoy the Madonna-bashing threads because, frankly, there is nothing that is being in said in them that she hasn't deserved. I just find they become less enjoyable when Janbot pops up.
But nothing beats a great film, music or book thread on DL.
