This is obviously a troll, but who do you suspect they're socking?

I was thinking Cothahump but it's supposedly a substitute teacher and now has cited an organization which I assume is hardly known outside of Utah. HurricaneDickhead, anyone?

It may not be a sock -- there is no end of morons out there. I love lines like this: "Trump is going to win in a landslide. He is the best, most intelligent and the most honest president in history." The troll's life expectancy here is very limited.

Dickface knew how to use the quote tags at least. But we'll see if he follows the conversation once one of his threads gets shoveled into the pit.

I thought for a minute about whether Slacker was a troll himself, but I don't think so. He actually believes what he says and he's here for discussion. IMO, YMMV

He apparent believes that it would be o.k. for Republicans to troll to their heart's content in the interest of "fairness".

Calling it now: Sdowiat is a sock and a troll.

Way too eager to dig up threads from 2018 (and it’s genuinely curious that the threads are indeed all dead as of 2018 prior to his efforts at resurrection), spout a bunch of hard-right-leaning rhetoric and religious apologetics (even goes so far as to defend, if not outright endorse, YEC in yet another of his zombies), and then make some inconsequential comments in a couple of mundane threads just to pad things out for the month. Yeah, sure, he’s just here to get "the straight dope."

Maybe this thread is too obvious, being posted in the Pit and all...

Poster's been around long enough to know the forums, so is clearly just pushing a hotbutton issue in the place where people getting angry is more possible.

I do not know Vlad and have never met him or his lovely former жена Lyudmila and he has never paid me a ruble for to say things, but he is good man too also, very much. Is what all peoples are saying. Biden is like ten-year-old borscht made by incompetent babushka -- very old, very bad.

That thread needs to be in the Pit. It's full of "women are liars, amirite", simultaneous assertions that Tara Reade is truthful, with a whole heaping side of sexism. Bawbags.


We need to pin something at the top of GD with the actual stats and explanations of the findings, so that they don't have to be repeated every other week.

Has anyone other than Reade accused Biden of sexual assault? Most men who sexually assault others do not stop at one.

(And don't bring in Christine Donnelly's daughter, who has had to change her story at least twice because it was physically impossible for Biden to have verbally harassed her.)

Organism being a troll goes beyond that thread. Dude started the most blatant Pit thread I can remember, saying that he wants all "boomers" (which he clarifies means the people on this board) to either leave or die. He cries that we're all fascists, blaming us for everything wrong in the world.

And I really don't think we should rehash that other topic here. There's not only a legit thread but also a Pit thread for that topic. No need to let it take over this one.

Also, how bad does an OP on one of the "standard" topics have to be before people will just walk on by?

Definitely not in this corner.

Quote:
Of that, we were able to have in-depth interviews with some 74 of them. Now, 62 of these former staffers were women. And to a person, Judy, those women told us they had never had any experience that was uncomfortable with the former vice president or ever heard of any experience that was uncomfortable or, worse, many of them said they had spent time with him alone during work hours and that they had — they wanted to say that they — most of them didn't want to reflect on whether on what Tara Reade is saying was true or not.

But they did say that it did not reflect their experiences at all, especially in a workplace that Dan and I both heard from them they felt empowered women.

I cannot tell you the number of times I ended up cutting and pasting a link from StormFront. Purely accidental, I assure you. Just doing research for a paper was all. People get all bent out of shape but it's no big deal; WWII is over.

And his corrected link is barely any more relevant than the Russian one about some unrelated American actress. It doesn't really say anything much, but once all the details emerged around the Weinstein situation years later, it turns out that Anita Dunn's so-called "work[ing] to keep rapist Harvey Weinstein clean" consisted in its totality of the following phone conversation:

Weinstein: Listen, Anita, a lot of bad things are being said about me and I need your PR firm's help.
Dunn: Fuck off, pervert. I never want to talk to you again.

But let us not be too hasty in accusing Comrade Manwich of being a Russian troll. All we know for sure is that he is troll who spends much time ogling Americanski actresses on Russian websites.

It may be that the pandemic is forgotten as the least of our worries by November this year.

https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...1#post22328131

Kinda a shame, because there actually could be a good discussion on the topic, but given the poster and the nature of the OP, that thread is pretty poisoned already.


ETA: NM, it's in the pit, actually an appropriate place for that type of post and poster. Thought it was another GD thread.

With the mod saying that they understood, I'm not sure why they're still able to post here. They don't even have an explanation for why they suddenly know Russian.

And suddenly seemed to have a lapse in speaking English--that's actually what I noticed first.

Last I checked, there is nothing in the user agreement that says that you are required to not know Russian. And QS's profile lists that he/she lives in Japan--which is right next door to Russia.

Slightly adjacent to topic: folks often talk about "the usual suspects" here, usually meaning right-wing posters and/or suspected trolls.

When I think of that term I think of the posters who just cannot resist feeding the most obvious troll, even to the point of posting this:

If there's no value in replying, how about NOT replying? How about NOT giving attention where it is not due.

So the usual suspects, to me, is a bunch of morons who can't resist trying to have the last word.
