Housecleaning announcement

Hey all. Happy Thanksiving. And to our international friends, happy regular day.

I’m just posting this to let you all know that we will be doing some housecleaning in this forum. Some posts may need to be deleted around here, because a very small number of posters can’t seem to be housebroken. That and we are a COMMUNIST MESSAGE BOARD. <snort>

Ignoring posters who blatantly return after being banned will help immensely.

So if you find yourself noticing posts disappearing that’s just us taking the Dawg out to be neutered.

Stupid git.

So, Alpha; you’re saying you enjoyed the comment about communist message board from the moron who wants everyone to book a flight to a non-existent country? BTW, his/her/its/whatever’s comments served to bolster by opinion that bigotry has nothing to do with logic or knowledge.

Isn’t it time we found a new insult around here?
Communism isn’t the bugaboo it once was, after all.

I remember when every argument here ended in a comparison to Hitler, and that would be the moloster.

Are the Iraqis too far back to refer to? Or the Iranians?

Is there some way to bring the IRA into this?

Or, um…

God DAMN it! Why the hell didn’t anyone tell me?! Damn, not only are the new mods going on power trips and banning at will, but the old mods are withholding information from the regulars! This has gone TOO FAR! Now I’m gonna have to make a personal crusade against the moderators’ authority until this injustice is righted! I…

Hey, who’s pouring Guinness? :wink:

The bar is open :wink:

In accordance with the scientific principles of combatting ignorance laid down and exemplified by C. Adams and E. Zotti, the Provisional All-Forums Soviet of the Straight Dope Message Board has been established to carry on the struggle against imperialist ignorance in the name of the Toiling Millions.

Comrades! Under the leadership of L. Bodoni firm measures have been undertaken for the complete liquidation of the Running Dog pro-ignorance imperialist lackeys. Death to the enemies of the Revolution!

Comrades! Under the leadership of A. Winkelreid, the quotas for establishing links to the original columns from the CCCF, in accordance with the principles of correct scientific Adamsist-Zottiist thought, have been overfulfilled for the fifth straight month. Everyone must ceaselessly participate in the revolutionary struggle to establish correct links from the CCCF!

Comrades! Everyone must do their part to combat and defeat the forces of the Tylerite conspiracy to enslave the liberated Message Board on behalf of counter-circumcisionist imperialism. At the same time deviationism from the correct democratic centralist procedures of the Administrators and Moderators must not be permitted. Death to the Tylerite counter-circumcisionist conspiracy!

Long live the Revolution!

That’s utter bullshit. Everyone knows that the SDMB is an Imperialistic Dictatorship, with me in control. Stupid dumbfucks that don’t know the difference 'tween “Communism” and “Imperialism”…

There you go again SPOOFE Bo Diddly, confusing forms of transport (imperial something-or-other, according to you) with political systems.

TOILING MILLIONS? Hah! Have you not noticed how quiet it is around here? That’s because it’s a holiday week and no one is at work…

Yes, well, some of us toil away at places that have to be manned 24 hours a day, 366 days a year.

I didn’t know we had a King. I thought we were an autonomous collective!

When do we get to see the violence inherent in the system?

Help! Help! I’m being repressed!


Nah, it’s not as bad as all that. When Gene says that we’re a communist message board, what he really means is that we ain’t making no freaking money yet.

When we start making dinero, that is when the repression and violence starts.

Sounds more Socialist, then. Or Scandinavian Liberal.:wink:

I told you. We’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week. But, all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting, by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,-- --but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more…

You should look around the site a little – the rest of it is extremely funny. Especially the Star Wars trilogy.

Supreme executive power is derived from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Maybe this thread should be swept under the mat, at least if there is any hope of us getting some self-respect. :wink:
