What are things that Datalounge knows very well?

And what are things Datalounge doesn’t know about?

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 7821 hours ago

I didn't know the term "sexual preference" was considered widely offensive.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 1Last Thursday at 6:11 PM

might be time for bed. I thought R1 posted he didn't know "sexual predator" was considered offensive.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 2Last Thursday at 6:37 PM

All things mayonnaise.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 3Last Thursday at 6:38 PM

[quote] he didn't know "sexual predator" was considered offensive.

Of course it's not. It's a calling card.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 4Last Thursday at 6:38 PM

R2, in Hollywood, it's a compliment.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 5Last Thursday at 6:39 PM

"Follies", every possible thing in the goddamned universe about "Follies".

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 6Last Thursday at 6:49 PM

Point of order, OP!!! Datalounge knows everything worth knowing.

To infer or suggest that we must actually "know" things is ridiculous. We don't need to "know"... because we know...capish..?

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 7Last Thursday at 6:55 PM

It keeps me informed as to what the kids are doing these days. /s

Actually, it was way ahead of the game with its COVID predictions and helped me save a lot of money I;the stock market.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 8Last Thursday at 7:08 PM

[QUOTE]To infer or suggest . . .

R7, I think the word you were looking for is "imply," not "infer." The speaker "implies," and the listener "infers."

[bold]Now[/bold] the DL knows everything worth knowing.

DL seems to be highly competent at the humanities, but could use improvement in the STEM subjects.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 12Last Thursday at 8:37 PM

Datalounge doesn’t do outside America very well. Apparently the only non Americans on Datalounge are Russian Bots. The idea that English is spoken outside of the US does not compute unless someone in America asks what the “English “ may think of something , then suddenly we exist for that moment.

Datalounge also believes that everyone thinks as an American Democrat, even if you live outside the US and that if you don’t you are a Frau , Nazi or a Russian troll.

DL knows the provenance of the tiaras of European royalty like nobody's business.

But its knowledge of medical health problems is very suspect, even though DLers seem to pride themselves on their medical know-how, which is almost always wrong.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 15Last Thursday at 9:07 PM

Inbred English royalty.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 16Last Thursday at 10:45 PM

R12, and it's not even the classical humanities; they only know the post-modern versions of the humanities.

And if you disagree, it's because you're a racist.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 17Last Friday at 3:22 AM

Well: What is in various 99 cent stores and the difference between them.

Not so well: way around a vagina

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 18Last Friday at 4:07 AM

Knows very well? Eating and television

Doesn't know very well? Medical issues and functioning well with the general public

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 19Last Friday at 4:10 AM

WAP!

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 20Last Friday at 4:17 AM

[quote] because we know...capish..?

Evidently we DON’T know the correct spelling of capisce.

But we do pointless bitchery like nobody’s business!

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 21Last Friday at 4:35 AM

...for reasons which Datalounge knows very well.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 22Last Friday at 4:38 AM

r21 Grazie, caro.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 23Last Friday at 4:49 AM

Certamente

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 24Last Friday at 4:51 AM

Great at criticizing white people, horrible at identifying them.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 25Last Friday at 4:58 AM

DL doesn't know shit about music but everything about sub-standard sitcoms of the late 80s/early 90s.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 26Last Friday at 5:16 AM

Knows very well: Mainstream media. Doesn't know very well: Alternative media. Knows very well: Pop music from 20-30 years ago. Doesn't know very well: Pop music now. Knows very well: Centrism. Doesn't know very well: Progressivism.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 27Last Friday at 5:25 AM

Well said R13!

Knows very well:

1. How to shut down ANY opposing viewpoints

2. How to offer grammar and spelling advice that add absolutely nothing to a post

3. How to make me laugh (seriously, there are times I am LITERALLY laughing out loud at some of the wit that can be found here)

4. And as R11 wrote: COCK. DL knows cock very well

Doesn't know about:

1. Disagreeing with someone's opinion in a civil and mature manner and then offering something more constructive

2. Indians (from Asia)

3. Sharing the sandbox with others

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 28Last Friday at 5:28 AM

[quote]Doesn't know very well: Progressivism.

We know it too well.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 29Last Friday at 5:29 AM

DLers know practically everything there is to know about benzos and anti-depressants. My medication is suddenly no longer being manufactured, so I swear I might come to DL to do some research on what else is out there.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 30Last Friday at 5:33 AM

straight people. DL knows less than nothing about straight people, but then, maybe they don't want to.

There are a lot of very intelligent people on here, but they often get drowned out by the stupids, so they know how to drown out smart people well, I guess.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 31Last Friday at 5:35 AM

Many years ago someone asked why most everything here is about show business. There was never a comprehensive answer.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 32Last Friday at 5:55 AM

[quote]Many years ago someone asked why most everything here is about show business.

Well, we showed him this year, didn't we?

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 33Last Friday at 5:57 AM

Golden Girls

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 34Last Friday at 5:59 AM

KNOWS WELL: Pretty much everything that happened between the years 1955 and 1985, particularly in regards to television shows and movies, obscure celebrities who have been in some way associated with gayness, usually as a result of having played a gay character while shirtless.

DOESN'T KNOW: Straight people, fashion, social class in America circa 2020, music not made by aging rockers/pop stars, technology

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 35Last Friday at 6:04 AM

THE ONE WHERE EVERYONE CAN SPOT A YMF POST

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 36Last Friday at 6:12 AM

The mewlings of OurMillennialHateSource when we encounter them, even when he fails to sign them a l'orange, e.g. r35.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 37Last Friday at 6:13 AM

What we don't understand is why YMF calls himself by that bit of nomenclature when what he comes here for is to mock us. Never anything else.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 38Last Friday at 6:15 AM

R29 Thanks for proving my point

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 39Last Friday at 6:49 AM

What's r40's reddit ID?

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 41Last Friday at 7:05 AM

DL mouths off confidently on my subject and gets it wrong most of the time. It leads me to doubt its sassy expertise on subjects I don't know about, r15, like tiaras of British royalty. I don't care to question DL expertise on junk food though.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 42Last Friday at 10:14 AM

r40 = YourMillennialDong

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 43Last Friday at 10:29 AM

Stoppit, Stoppit!!!!! You're all Pretty. You're all Smart.....CAPISH?

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 44Last Friday at 10:36 AM

[quote] straight people. DL knows less than nothing about straight people

Oh, we know a lot about them. The difference between the DL and everyone else is that we're not afraid to hold a microscope over them like everyone else is wont to do with gay men.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 45Last Friday at 7:11 PM

Or as known by DLers - Dot Indians

Or as known by DLers below age 40 - Tech support Indians

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 48Last Friday at 8:14 PM

The non-existent, yet hilarious feud between M & Poor G.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 49Last Friday at 8:22 PM

"How to shut down ANY opposing viewpoints"

It's funny how people think criticizing other people is "shutting them down"

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 50Last Friday at 8:56 PM

Unknown: no of holes a female has down there

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 51Last Friday at 9:04 PM

Knows well: Books/Literature (I've gotten so many good book recommendations here), movies (don't try to beat a DLer at Oscar trivia), politics (there are exceptions but I've found the posters here are very well informed), climbing Mount Everest (weirdly enough). Also DL has been pretty accurate about calling out all the sexual predators in the gay community - Spacey, Singer, Bruce Weber, James Levine, etc. were all called out on the datalounge years before metoo.

Doesn't know: hetero sex, heterosexual women, rap and hip-hop

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 52Last Friday at 9:13 PM

We know heterosexual women better than they know us.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 53Last Friday at 9:18 PM

r53, maybe, but that's not exactly a ringing endorsement since most straight women don't know a thing about gay life unless they have lots of gay friends

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 54Last Friday at 9:21 PM

R1 Lesbian feminists invented that particular split of the hair. Preference implies you might change your mind or, God forbid, are attracted to both and prefer one over the other.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 55Last Friday at 9:29 PM

Knows: how pussy smells

Doesn't Know: how pussy smells

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 56Last Friday at 9:43 PM

Knows: obscure horror movies pre-2000, Googling.

Doesn't know: what a dually is. Yet.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 57Last Friday at 10:34 PM

How to abuse quotation marks.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 58Last Friday at 10:39 PM

[quote] Preference implies you might change your mind

Preference also implies it’s a choice, as though one chooses to be gay or not.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 59Last Saturday at 3:14 AM

R50 you make a valid point.

However, which response are you more likely to see on DL when someone does share an opposing viewpoint?

1. "RXX you make a valid point. I hadn't thought about it that way; but, I still feel what I wrote stands true." (criticise)

2. "RXX you're a fucking asshole" or "You're a Trumper" or "You're a troll" etc. (shutting down)

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 60Last Saturday at 7:49 AM

Freedom of speech means freedom to call someone a troll or a trumper. That's not shutting people down.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 61Last Saturday at 9:17 AM

I have learned more about British nobility from DL than anywhere else including Debrett's Peerage and Baronetage......

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 62Last Saturday at 9:49 AM

Agreed. The royal threads have proliferated here to an unhealthy degree, ever since the Sussex marriage and troubles, but the knowledge of the intricacies of the UK monarchy and peerage system as well as recent European royal history (ie., the late Romanov era) is actually high-quality has led to some great exchanges.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 63Last Saturday at 12:06 PM

The many aromas of the pussy.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 64Last Saturday at 12:09 PM

DL does not know the great power of Donald J. Trump

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 65Last Saturday at 1:22 PM

Hey, we know more about science than Trump, R12.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 66Last Saturday at 1:39 PM

DL knows ALL about: kissable lips.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 67Last Saturday at 2:11 PM

Yes, kissable lips... and womanly hips.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 68Last Saturday at 6:56 PM

DL is great talking about 1980-2000.

DL is not great talking about society as it exists in 2020. Ask about a place and you still get anecdotes from what it was like in the 90s.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 69Last Saturday at 7:17 PM

That’s not true, r69.

Why when I joined Datalounge back in 1999 it was a completely different place. It was a fun....

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 70Last Sunday at 10:35 AM

R43, is r40 really YMF?

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 71Last Sunday at 2:03 PM

Knows very well: grammar and spelling.

Doesn't know very well: Malibu beachfront real estate (Tasteful Friends threads) and the market for same. Posters are always comparing apples to oranges in these threads. Just because that's not how you'd spend your multi-millions doesn't mean it's not worth buying, to some people.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 72Last Sunday at 2:24 PM

DL knows little about health care policy and funding.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 73Last Sunday at 2:39 PM

Knows: the Aldi Finds of the week.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 74Last Sunday at 2:48 PM

That'd be nice, wouldn't it, r71. It's a much prettier picture than the one my mind usually conjures when a YMF post rears its unpleasant head.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 75Yesterday at 1:50 AM

R69 There is no society in 2020.

by Clueless and Cluefulreply 76Yesterday at 3:54 AM

[quote] DL doesn't know shit about music but everything about sub-standard sitcoms of the late 80s/early 90s.

There were so many of them and we are still paying the price for their existence today.
