I'll Leave This Banning Up to You
— Ace

I've had it with "someguy," myself. But I don't want to get all Charles Johnson here. I'll leave it up to you.

On one hand, he's a humorless, useless, brainless sanctimonious troll who has nothing to do all day but bitch and crow about how he and he alone is a True Conservative greatly concerned with Winning Back Our Freedom, primarily by being a 24/7 asshole in the comments.

On the other hand, Warden and other commenters had an awful lot of fun parodying his rhetorical style (read his initial comments at the beginning of the thread, then check down to post 75 where Warden and others mock him).

So -- should I ban him?

1 I dont know who this guy is, but in the choice of ban/no ban I usually side for "no ban".

3 Yes

Posted by: Vic at March 31, 2010 10:02 AM (QrA9E)

4 He really effectively thread-jacked a couple of threads, but now that we're on to him (I hope everyone now agrees he's a troll, whatever his motivations are), I think he can be managed.

Oh, and, Fuckity FUCK YOU FUCKERS... DO I HAVE TO TEACH YOU EVERYTHING?!?!

Good thinking, Ace.  But nobody would blame you if you succumbed...just this once.

7 Holy shit I am the first vote!  I don't like where this is going. 

Someguy is a dick, but if you start voting on who can post, we're all  in trouble.

It's your blog, you don't like the guy, fuck him.  We should have no say.

It's called ownership.  You da owner, we just show up to try and get you some traffic.

I voted for keeping him around awhile. The other night, I was laughing so hard at the the original thread that I woke my wife. This is why I love AOSHQ.

 

Of course, like all trolls, it will eventually get tiresome, but for now, I say keep him.

9 Unless they're deliberately trying to sabotage the blog's image by using racial epithets and the like (astroturfing by axeldouche), you shouldn't ban anybody...let the commenters use them for fish bait

Posted by: CanaDave at March 31, 2010 10:04 AM (DgRMW)

10 Ace, why would you want to ban someone who thinks that YOU are a leader of the conservative movement? (See comment 14 in the Letterman thread)

Posted by: fozzy at March 31, 2010 10:05 AM (ccEuN)

11
Just ban him. 

He's been annoying for a long time.  There are plenty of trolls to make fun of.

Posted by: dan-O at March 31, 2010 10:05 AM (+9Rf8)

12 Heh. As of my vote, 3 people are claiming to be someguy.  I don't think in a spartacus type of way, maybe he has multiple personalites, but for sure he is an a-hole.

Posted by: Guy Fawkes at March 31, 2010 10:05 AM (7VvJB)

Dude, he brought you some wicked traffic and the rest of us laughs.

What would possess you to ban him?

Posted by: laceyunderalls at March 31, 2010 10:05 AM (pLTLS)

14 He is a good reminder of how not to act as a conservative.

Keep him around until Warden runs out of material.  Or, he starts drinking cocktails on the beach with his dog.

15 Ace, you witless moron.

Don't you know that by mentioning someguy in a main blog post, instead of the comment section, you're punching down. Worse than that, you're giving your opponent a forum to spew his ideas.

Fucking, amateur hour, I tell you.

Doesn't anyone at this fucking blog know how to play this game?

Fuck.

16 We should ask someguy to take on an assignment that would use his particular powers to good ends: assign him to make erg's life miserable 24/7/365. That's change I can believe in!

20 Oh god no, don't ban him.  You can't take from us the fun of abusing this guy... it wouldn't be right!  Let him stay and be beaten like Tina Turner after Ike got bailed out for domestic violence.  PLEEEESE?!?

45  For anonymous coward, he had a point to make, but immature, obscenity-filled diatribe probably isn't the best way to do that.

See here's my beef with the banning....

It's a disparate impact on the wimmins here. We get PMSy too and go all someguylike on certain days.

It's really not his fault that on occassion he has forgotten to take out his tampon. It happens to the best of us.

Think of the wimmins, ace!

Eh? Ban him? Err.......naaaaah. Dude has anger issues and all, but I can't really get down with banning him. I mean, he IS a conservative, albeit a rather vulgar, immature and offensive one, but I don't want him banned. Maybe try to talk a bit of sense into the kid. His passion and fire could be turned around and made into a positive potentially. Give him a second chance. Just like Obama does to Gitmo detainees.

I am someguy, and I don't think I should be banned.

Here's why:

1) I am a conservative with very passionate feelings about defeating Democrat socialism.

2) I strongly believe that in order to do so, the Republican Party has to be pushed rightward ... so, naturally, I'll have a lot of things to say about RINOs. And the Republican Party is full of them.

3) I see a lot of mistakes being made by this blog, which could be a great conservative voice. You might not agree with me ... but are we not free to voice our opinions here?

4) Charles Johnson is a douchebag of the first order. What's next Ace ... a long letter about how the Republicans left you?

5) I know you don't like me Ace, because I'll speak up when you're fucking up. Man up, I say. If you can't take the criticism, then by all means, ban me and join Charles Johnson in the Douchebag Hall of Fame.

6) Why are we even having to have this discussion?

I mentioned in a post the other day that one of the reasons that I haven't donated to your blog is that you ban people who you disagree with or who you find disagreeable. Lots of commenters tried to claim I was out of bounds with that claim.

Thanks for proving my point.

That I have to come here and defend myself says a lot about you, Ace.

Posted by: someguy at March 31, 2010 10:16 AM (VRJIW)

71

Isn't there a "someguy" in all of us?

 I put it to you, Ace - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!

 

Posted by: newguy40 at March 31, 2010 10:17 AM (kduZC)

72 I went with the "no ban" option -- 'cause he got his ass handed to him on the one thread where he pulled his act.

But if it becomes a wearisome drumbeat across multiple threads......I could be persuaded otherwise.

80 Well, I don't know.  On one hand "someguy" was a really obnoxious fucking douche with pretty much no redeeming qualities except being far too fucking stupid to comprehend simple English.

On the other hand, he thinks calling someone fucking stupid and asking what the fuck they think they're doing = "Constructive criticism".  If that weren't an actual serious comment if his, it would be amusing.

*From the other post
Let me ask you something you dumb mother fucker:
Why would you post up MSNBC video when they ahve the lowest fucking ratings of all the cable channels?
Do you understand what it means to "punch down?"
This is the talent we have working for us, people.

Posted by: someguy at March 29, 2010 10:46 PM (VRJIW)

So "someguy", you're welcome for the first paragraph here.  that wasn't wild ranting insults, it was "constructive criticism" just like you're worried gets you branded a troll.  Just for you you fucking idiot without a damned brain to realize when he's being insulted and can't fucking understand why people might not like his comment.  Wow... more contrsuctive criticism for him; it just flows.  Amazing how much contructive criticism I seem to have.  I'm just full of sweetness and light looking to help him improve I guess... the damned useless inane jackhole.

Maybe he's not an extreme concern troll, but his rewriting of the English language doesn't make him someone I'd care to talk to... you'd have no idea what he thinks words actually mean.

Yeah, ban him.  I can't see anyone really missing him when he's gone.

97 someguy -

first question - are you constitutionally capable of getting over yourself?

You see a lot of mistakes being made by this blog?

really?

Lead by example, there, buck-o

or, put it another way, why on Earth should ace give a fuck about what your opinion is?  Do you have some record of "fixing" blogs and increasing traffic?

Have you some proof that your ways are better or more effective that you can share with the class?

Keep him AND use "punching down" in the title of every new post for 1 month.  For example, the last 5 post's could read:

1.  I'll avoid punching down this lowly commenter by letting you lowly commenters vote on banning him.

2.  Tea Party leader punches down Letterman...what was he thinking?  He only gave Letterman MORE CREDIBILITY!!!

3.  Video flashback: Evan Coyne Maloney punches down at some random Bush = Hitler Kos Kids and/or Kucinich lizard people.

4. Shocking...GOP feeling Repeal = Punching Down, should punch up at jobs and people losing their homes.  DOES THE GOP HAVE TO TEACH YOU GUYS EVERYTHING!?!?!

157  mentioned in a post the other day that one of the reasons that I haven't donated to your blog is that you ban people who you disagree with or who you find disagreeable. Lots of commenters tried to claim I was out of bounds with that claim.

Uh, wrong blog, dude. The bannings have been very limited. Palin Steele, and he didn't get banned till he dropped the n bomb. And I suspect Ace would ban anyone of us who came in here and dropped an n bomb. Erg. but erg was just an ass beyond belief, mildly racist and sexist in his comments and generally a pain. Plus erg gets around the ban. So, say what you want. But don't make the bullshit claim Ace bans people left and right. Its crap. If you had been around awhile you would know that.

Posted by: Mallamutt

 

Yup. This site is identical to LGF and Ace is the idiot evil twin of Charles 'Little' Johnson. That's why when Ace was voicing concern about some of the language used we were treated to epic 'banhammer' threads where Ace, in 25 words or less (to the nth power) explained his concerns that a crudload of people then bandied about. 'Banhamer' itself is now a term or such thread, in addition to the aforementioned banning. I cannot tell the difference in the two sites. Except for the calendar ads. This place ain't that classy.

note to someidiot: This was sarcasm.

However, in general I don't like the idea of jerks like this hijacking threads. It was funny once, and it might be funny once or twice more. But after that it will wear thin. I'd say give him one more chance to be a twit, then stamp him out when you've out of patience.

Maybe I didn't read someguy's comments that closely, but I think he's a well intentioned, conservative.  Unfortunately, he hasn't learned you can't come on like a drill instructor on meth.

207 However, in general I don't like the idea of jerks like this hijacking threads.

How did I hijack a thread? Hijacking a thread is the act of taking a thread about one subject, and then changing that subject to harp on a different issue altogether.

I commented in the thread a lot, having a conversation with the group. That is not "hijacking" a thread. It is back-and-forth answering questions when asked and making points when required to back up a position.

I hate thread hijacking. And I've not done it.

Ive also not broken any other commenting rule here ... or if I have, I have received no warning or notification about that.

Are there rules? What are the rules? Where are the rules posted?

Not this way. 

Let the Troll Busters and Commenters have their/our way with him.  When he gets annoying the busters can treat him like a bad case of 'Lacewigs' or 'CDKeyers' ( where has Jason been?).

someguy just has a bad case of anal scarring and he needs the AoSHQTm Lotion to salve it.

Perhaps he has been hittong the 'lifestyle' a bit hard?  Mass doses of Valu-Rite and Hobo Liver can do crazy things to a man.  Not even Rainbow Skittle Shitting Unicorns can do a thing to cure Vitamin 'A' induced dymentia.

Horseshit like this drives me insane. Tell me, do newspapers have to publish every letter to the editor they receive? No, of course not. A blog is like a newspaper in this respect: it is the property of the blogger. If Ace wants to ban you because you're an asshole, ban you because you split your infinitives, or ban you because it's Wednesday, he has the right to do so in any and all cases.

Oh crap that reminds me, have to dig out the Odin's Cross display from the basement and get it setup in time for Easter. 

As to the disposition of someguy, if he's become enough of a pain in the ass by all means ban him.  There's about 40 billion blogs out there he can post his ignorant ramblings on other than this one, no harm done.

Personally I don't really care much either way, I find him amusing in an infantile sort of way but for the most part I just ignore him, so if he isn't really bothering you he certainly isn't bothering me.

It is rather fun on occasion though to watch some of the others rip his stupidity to shreds.  But hey, if you think it's some sort of detriment to the board as a whole then your well within your rights to enforce a ban.

I think anyone who reads the comments on the board realizes that such bans are not something you enforce for simple disagreements of opinion.  While I'm sure this is what someguy will scream at the top of his lungs over at the DailyKos and The HuffPuffy Post anyone who  of stops by here once or twice will quickly discover the truth.

I'm kind of against banning, unless the person in question does obvious obnoxious stuff like death threats, racial slurs, and the usual sort of thing that ought to get him or her banned from life itself.

I wonder if I'll get banned for generally not having made any useful points during my career as AoSHQ Commentor.  (I never did start getting my salary anyway, and I'm sure the health care expenses now would put Ace under.)

In a desperate attempt to be cooler than guys like me, he had his twelve year old roommate create a machine that speeds up the neuron building process. The machine worked so well that every neuron in his brain was accelerated to the speed of light. There were two side effects.

One: He can mess up a blog just by posting to it.
And Two: He became a humorless dick!

Posted by: rightzilla at March 31, 2010 10:47 AM (rVJH4)

282 I am someguy, and I don't think I should be banned.
Here's why:
1, 2,   Blah blah blah

3) I see a lot of mistakes being made by this blog, which could be a great conservative voice. You might not agree with me ... but are we not free to voice our opinions here? So go start the perfect massive super-mega blog smart guy.  Never ban anyone and only talk about the "correct" topics.  I'm sure you'll be famous in no time.

4) Charles Johnson is a douchebag of the first order. What's next Ace ... a long letter about how the Republicans left you? Yes, a single post of MSNBC making jackholes of themselves = Chuckles level of idiocy; and possibly banning a jackhole who thinks he should be running and deciding everything = the worst thing EVAR.

5) I know you don't like me Ace, because I'll speak up when you're fucking up. Man up, I say. If you can't take the criticism, then by all means, ban me and join Charles Johnson in the Douchebag Hall of Fame.  Chuckles is a douchebag, Chuckles banned you (I assume); but that doesn't mean anyone who bans you is a douchebag.  Learns some basic logic.

6) Why are we even having to have this discussion? 
1 Let me ask you something you dumb mother fucker:
Why would you post up MSNBC video when they ahve the lowest fucking ratings of all the cable channels?
Do you understand what it means to "punch down?"
This is the talent we have working for us, people.
Posted by: someguy at March 29, 2010 10:31 PM (VRJIW)

Ring any bells?

I mentioned in a post the other day that one of the reasons that I haven't donated to your blog is that you ban people who you disagree with or who you find disagreeable. Lots of commenters tried to claim I was out of bounds with that claim.
Um, Ace and I have disagreed vehemently on several occasions.  Admittedly I didn't start calling him a dumb motherfucker and insinuate I should be running his site and calling the shots... oddly I wasn't under the ban hammer for simply disagreeing.  I kept my insults aimed at him within a decent range of vitriol.  I stated he was wrong; not that I was the one person to fix his damned site for him since he couldn't possibly do it himself.

He made a crack about Libertarians (that I called him on excessively, twice I think) I disagreed violently on a couple other posts; and I've been something of a schmuck on disagreeing about the bank bailouts.  But I didn't show up here one day cranked to 11 on jackassery.

Thanks for proving my point.
What, that if you're enough of a jackass enough of the time to everyone, and start acting like everyone ought to be worshiping your crap that you might not be well liked?  Not exactly a doctorate level thesis here guy.

That I have to come here and defend myself says a lot about you, Ace.
That you fail to do so in the simplest manner possible (admit you were over the line, and could have made your point better instead of being a self-absorbed asshole) says a lot about you.

I know I should be above feeding the trolls; which is why I'm so happy to have a "feed the trolls here" thread.  Even if it is a huge mistake that Genius "someguy" MacDoucherton could correct if you'd just hand over all control of the blog to him like he so politely told you to fucking do already.

289 As for other considerations, I've heard that Ace is trying to make a buck or two, here. Enough to pay for his booze, if nuthin' else.

 Anonymous, obscenity-laden, vitriolic diatribes - by people like someguy, sock puppets or even anonymous cowards - probably isn't getting the job done.

 ...but that seems to be a tough decision. Lose a few readers and regular commenters...or satisfy more upscale advertisers and make some money?

I have never argued any other position.

And a lot of commenters said they agreed with a lot of what I wrote except that. They said I was over the line with that comment.

I wasn't. And here we are.

This is Ace's blog and if he wants to ban me he should. And if he does ban me, oh well, then I was right and there's not much difference between him and Charles Johnson, which I suspected and said as much.

3) I make a lot of mistakes being on this blog, which could be my downfall. You might not agree with me ... but why the hell should I care?

4) Charles Johnson is a douchebag of the first order and I just love sucking his . . . well, you know. What's next Ace ... I have to start sucking you too?

5) I know you don't like me Ace, because I'm a fucking retard. Man up, I say. If you don't like fucking retards then just say so.

6) Why are we even having to have this discussion, was it something I said?

Loudly announce each failure to the diners next to you as you pocket your cash. Failures may include but aren't limited to, speaking too loudly or softly, standing in a "lackadaisical" manner, shifty eyes, nostril weezing, nauseatingly puffy pants pockets, poor posture, and clammy elbows.

352 someguy, you're obviously very intelligent.  But your borderline victimhood thing is tiresome for ace, and it's probably pretty tiring for you, too.  I'm guessing you can't stop thinking about this, and about politics in general, and you're always anxious or angry.  It's not healthy.  You need to figure out what to do about that.

If I were ace, I would ban you for entering a thread with insults and fury, but that's just me.  (I didn't vote in the poll; I don't care what decision ace makes here.)  It wouldn't be anything personal, though; I'd unban you if and when you sorted things out.  As I said, you're an intelligent person and I'd like to hear your ideas.

someguy, you fucking twerp, if you're going to call out the owners of a blog and everyone posting on it as dumb motherfuckers, HAVE THE FUCKING STONES to dig your heels in and double-down on every fucking word you say. When you're hit in the face by a raging torrent of smackdown, even if you do deserve it, don't come crawling back through the sand with half-assed rationalizations and pleas for understanding! FIGHT, YOU SORRY FUCKING PANSY ASS POPSICLE COCK! You called down the thunder, well now you've got it!

Jesus, I don't know. Maybe you should ban him anyway, Ace; he's gone from entertaining to pathetic.

376 Yes someguy is an A-hole. But I hate to think about banning someone just because he has a bad attitude. Certainly my decorum lapses from time to time. I mean at least he can string sentences together better than Stanford Grad, Dr. Palin-Steele, the all wise all pretentious Guru honest cloud, and the master of all knowledge Sir Isaac Poon.

someguy has obviously never tried to maintain a steady readership before. Apparently he forgot this is AosHQ (now with 25% more bacon flavor), not RNC central, and if the morons don't get their shiny entertainment value as well as informative value then some bloggers might be missing their personal bacon IFYKWIMAITYD. Just look at Ace's absolute skill at using the unconventional tactic of getting into regular arguments with the readership. Nothing promotes reader participation and hit counts like that.

Which makes me think, we haven't had a 1000 comment circular firing squad in a while. I'll kick it off.

This doesn't seem to be getting answered.  I *think* it's like when Obama went on a mission to destroy FNC, or earlier, Rush Limbaugh.  The idea is you don't pick a fight with someone who's 'less' than you in some sense, because you diminish your stature (people think why are you wasting your time) and elevate the opponent (people get curious about what you're making such a big deal about it).

I'm not sure what point someguy was trying to make, unless AoS has more readers than MSNBC has viewers.  Which is possible, but I think there would have been some kind of announcement.

399 Tip #106

When dining out, proper tip etiquette is expected. Line up five one dollar bills on the table and inform your server that "personal performance is key."

Deduct one dollar in front of your server each time he fails to live up to your expectations. Loudly announce each failure to the diners next to you as you pocket your cash.


True story: when I was in collidge, I made a Tip-O-Meter so I could display the current tip % the waitress was gonna get.  And I took it to a restaurant where my girlfriend was a waitress.  She didn't wait on me.  Hilarity ensued.  Especially since the guy I went with liked to get slobber-knockered, and get everybody else the same way.

423 "someguy is issuing legal threats now?  Because someone said he lives in MA?"

When have I issued a threat?

I merely am pointing out, for all to see, some major league hypocrisy on the part of the blog owners. When Democrats use the politics of personal destruction and try to protest outside the homes of AIG executives, there is condemnation all around.

When I criticized AoSHQ, a banning vote is held and my IP address and home city are released by a commenter who supposedly is a normal commenter, but who revealed himself to have access to the blog's server logs (usually an administrative function).

That's not a threat.

Just documenting what occurred and noting how hypocritical it is that when Democrats destroyed Joe The Plumber, there was condemnation all around. And yet when some two-bit commenter says the wrong thing here, the Swastikas come right out.

What the fuck?

Is it supposed to scare me into silence?

Because it doesn't.

Nice blog you got here, Ace. Be a shame if anything happened to it.

425 has anyone actually been banned more recently than Dum Dum?  I mean that's been around for any length of time, not like 'dfghjk' that showed up in the last couple of weeks.

Well, there's the annual "don't let your inner klansman out" thread.  Those things always result in, like, five bannings of people who wanna see just how far they can go.

Regardless, MSNBC is a much bigger operation than Ace of Spades, so it was punching up.  Idiot.  You don't even know what punching down is really about, after freaking about it.

Sometimes, you have to be entertaining and diverse.  You can't spend your whole time like an animal, pretending everyone is paying attention to who is dominant.  That's for betas.  Alphas just do.  Someguy makes Allahpundit look like a Green Beret.

However, they can really make posting in a given thread un-fun, particularly when everyone else starts stepping all over reach other trying to punch the troll in the forehead. I'll defer to your judgement on this one, Ace. As I've said in the past: you're a lot more lenient about this kind of thing than I would be.

VRJIW

I am someguy, and I don't think I should be banned.

I don't think so either, but not for the reasons you're thinking, Shit-For-Brains.


Here's why:

1) I am a conservative with very passionate feelings about defeating Democrat socialism.

No, what you are is a whiny bitch with the complete inability to understand why a post was made. It's apparent to all here that your passion is reserved for calling us out rather than taking the fight to Kos and FireDogLake.


2) I strongly believe that in order to do so, the Republican Party has to be pushed rightward ... so, naturally, I'll have a lot of things to say about RINOs. And the Republican Party is full of them.

So, you honestly think that the way to change the direction of the party is to call names and insult people who all generally agree with you on a blog. That's a really good strategy, Einstein. You got me going with you.

 
3) I see a lot of mistakes being made by this blog, which could be a great conservative voice. You might not agree with me ... but are we not free to voice our opinions here?

Actually, Dumbguy, you aren't free to voice your opinion here. Ace pays the bandwidth. It's his soapbox, not yours. If you don't like that, step the fuck off, and start your own from scratch. Let us know how that works out for you. Yanno, I'm a little surprised that some SuperConservative like yourself has so little knowledge on how free speech actually works here in the US. You wouldn't happen to be a slightly-better-than-average Astroturfer, would you?

 
4) Charles Johnson is a douchebag of the first order. What's next Ace ... a long letter about how the Republicans left you?

Wow. You actually have the nerve to compare AoSHQ to LGF. I have two questions- 1) What are you smoking? 2) Why aren't you sharing?


5) I know you don't like me Ace, because I'll speak up when you're fucking up. Man up, I say. If you can't take the criticism, then by all means, ban me and join Charles Johnson in the Douchebag Hall of Fame.

Trust it, dude (sorry, MPFS). It's not just Ace. And since sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, well, it looks to me you're taking a pretty good beating. I'm beginning to lean towards having your sorry ass booted from the island.

6) Why are we even having to have this discussion?

Lawdy, I had to snicker when I saw that. Not to brag, but I've been here for quite a while now, and I don't think Ace has banned more than a handful of people over the last 5 years. Most, if not all were for engaging in the kind of behavior you exhibit right now- being a pointless asshat. I don't blame Ace for being fed up with your shtick: you add nothing to the conversation, you aren't funny in any sense of the word, your political knowledge is almost zero, and you're insulting for all the wrong reasons to the wrong people.  

I mentioned in a post the other day that one of the reasons that I haven't donated to your blog is that you ban people who you disagree with or who you find disagreeable. Lots of commenters tried to claim I was out of bounds with that claim.

You are out of line. It's up to you to donate or not. Your mistake is in linking it to bannings that haven't occurred. Tell ya what- find 10 people who have suffered the banhammer here because of political content or disagreements with the siteowner. Erg and Palin Steele don't count.

Thanks for proving my point.

That I have to come here and defend myself says a lot about you, Ace.

Ace isn't the one who made fun of you. We are. If you didn't act like stupid fuck, you woudn't have had to defend yourself against the charge, would you? And I gotta say- that defense is looking like a catastophic FAIL.

524 @501: "It's apparent to all here that your passion is reserved for calling us out rather than taking the fight to Kos and FireDogLake."

Really? Neither of those sites count for shit. They're not a factor in American electoral politics. Nobody reads Kos or FireDogLake who might ever vote Republican. So, you're right. I'd rather push Republicans rightward than spend time railing about Kos because that can actually accomplish something. Pushing Republicans right pushes the country right. Mitt Romney signed ObamaCare in Massachusetts ... not Markos Moulitas.

2) "So, you honestly think that the way to change the direction of the party is to call names and insult people who all generally agree with you on a blog. "

Sometimes. Sometimes it can be very effective. A careful reading of my commentary would show various strategies for getting a point across - most of which are deliberately chosen at the time they're posted. I assume you've perused my comment history?

3) "Actually, Dumbguy, you aren't free to voice your opinion here. Ace pays the bandwidth."

No, acutally the advertisers and donors pay for the bandwidth - not Ace. And I'm free to voice my opinion here as long as my opinion gets Ace further down the road he wants to go. As long as both our interests are advanced. How far he wants to go is up to him. I'm advancing my interests and will do so whether I'm banned or not - maybe even more if I'm banned. The moment he starts banning people who criticize him will be the day he loses influence. It would be a mistake. This poll was already a rookie mistake.

4) You actually have the nerve to compare AoSHQ to LGF.

Only as regards this banning attempt. I mean, how gauche?

5) "It looks to me you're taking a pretty good beating. I'm beginning to lean towards having your sorry ass booted from the island. "

You get a vote. You're free to express your opinion. For now. As long as it's the right opinion. I'd urge you to look inward at how easily you've been led to wanting to shut down a voice you disagree with, instead of fighting speech with more speech. You're becoming everything you ever hated - and so easily.

6) "Most, if not all bannings were for engaging in the kind of behavior you exhibit right now- being a pointless asshat."

Really? Ace only bans pointless asshats? How is that different from the attitude that Charles Johnson has exhibited, except in its scope. Charles thinks most anyone who disagrees with him is a pointless asshat. Is that the stick we are measuring by? Whether or not Ace thinks a comment is made by a pointless asshat? How does that differ from Charles in any meaningful way? Or Barack Obama? Or the SEIU?

7) "Ace isn't the one who made fun of you. We are."

I'm not concerned by that. Have some fun with it. If Ace wants to make fun of me, or anyone else. Doesn't bother me in the least. If we can't have a little fun with this, what's the point, really?

If this were just about viewpoint, that would be one thing.  I've been real damn hard on Ace at times, and no one gives a shit, even when he discusses with me.

But it's not about viewpoint.  This is just a constant retarded effort to get attention in all threads, and change the topic.  Someguy is probably just a dumb loser, but it's part of the Moby technique to pretend to be a harder line conservative and freak out and distract and divide.  Whether he's sincere or not, all he ever does is make threads harder to read.

Everyone change your vote to ban.  Just because you look down on LGF for banning legit POVs doesn't mean some bannings aren't righteous.

Logical fallacy: one of these things is not like the other.  Charles Johnson bans rational individuals who merely disagree with him about his dogma of the day.

571 Well, to be fair, if Someguy were to post thousands of comments on LGF calling Charles Johnson a stupid mother fucker repeatedly, and insist on changing the subject of every single thread to how Charles is not performing the someguy strategy, then yes, someguy would be banned there.

So if Ace bans him here, as he should, then Ace will have that in common with Charles.  Both of them also need water to survive and own computers, too.

Someguy thinks this line or reasoning opens up Ace to the kind of ridicule Charles gets for banning reasonable commenters.  That's because someguy is pretty stupid.

Thanks for proving my point.

That I have to come here and defend myself says a lot about you, Ace.

That you haven't been summarily banned already says a lot about that first bit - if so many people who actually, rationally disagree with, or are disagreeable to, Ace, are banned so frequently, why are you still here? 
Personally, I don't want to see you banned, someguy.  Asshats like you are fun to play with, and I don't get nearly enough playtime during the day.  Post on, big boy...if you don't mind getting your dick stomped on, we sure don't mind stomping on it for you.

I'd like to donate, and would, if the blog could be counted on to even provide like .. you know ... functional links?

It is the internet age, you know?

Half the links don't work, guy doesn't get up till noon, puts in a half-day of drinking, has a bunch of free employees donating most of the posts, steals most of his posts from someone else who does do excellent work and who's links actually result in pages.

I'm freeloading?

If so, I've learned well from the master!

Not criticizing it .... in fact I stand in awe of such slackness ... just not willing to part money for it.

I have to abstain from banning conversations, given my past as a LGF bully. A past I'm not at all proud of.

I could say "I won't miss him" (or "her" - I don't much care, a troll is a troll) but then I feel the same way about 90% of the human race. Misanthropy, etc.

The spanking he got was fun to read. I say trollbust his comments if he looks to be hijacking any particular thread, and put him on timeout if he spams it.

No, it's not, and I'm surprised really that a community this large has such technologically backward commenter's.

A troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

My comments are always on topic and never extraneous. while certainly at times I am inflammatory .. my comments are never designed to disrupt normal on-topic discussion.

I am much more prolific than the average sloth here, and certainly at times inflammatory in my rhetoric, but I am  not a troll. It is never my attempt to use my comments to change the normal on-topic discussion.

No, apparently to Fozzy, if anyone thinks your comment is stupid, then you are, ipso facto, a troll. Or if your comment is found to be unwelcome.

In other words, if you're not contributing to the echo chamber, then you're a troll.

I thought that was the Democrat Party definition of troll.

But now I see it's the definition here too.

@501: "It's apparent to all here that your passion is reserved for calling us out rather than taking the fight to Kos and FireDogLake."

Really? Neither of those sites count for shit. They're not a factor in American electoral politics. Nobody reads Kos or FireDogLake who might ever vote Republican. So, you're right. I'd rather push Republicans rightward than spend time railing about Kos because that can actually accomplish something. Pushing Republicans right pushes the country right. Mitt Romney signed ObamaCare in Massachusetts ... not Markos Moulitas.

About as likely as we are to vote Democrat. So all that sweat you're breaking here gets you precisely nada. You would likely do better here if you made a cogent argument armed with some facts if this is to be your tack.


2) "So, you honestly think that the way to change the direction of the party is to call names and insult people who all generally agree with you on a blog. "

Sometimes. Sometimes it can be very effective. A careful reading of my commentary would show various strategies for getting a point across - most of which are deliberately chosen at the time they're posted. I assume you've perused my comment history?

You really need to understand- insulting the choir is not an effective way to reach the heathens in the streets. You can push all you want. As long as your message tells me in a non-constructive way that I'm- in your eyes- screwing up, I'm a lot more likely to tell you to get bent. I'm not here for your advice, and I really don't care what other strategems you've employed to cajole people into your point of view. What I do know is you've shown yourself to be a dick, which is why you get no respect from me. By the way- did you even deign to explain to us what a "punch-down" was, or do you yourself not know what that means? I'm just curious if you know the definition that you started this shitstorm over.  

3) "Actually, Dumbguy, you aren't free to voice your opinion here. Ace pays the bandwidth."

No, acutally the advertisers and donors pay for the bandwidth - not Ace. And I'm free to voice my opinion here as long as my opinion gets Ace further down the road he wants to go. As long as both our interests are advanced. How far he wants to go is up to him. I'm advancing my interests and will do so whether I'm banned or not - maybe even more if I'm banned. The moment he starts banning people who criticize him will be the day he loses influence. It would be a mistake. This poll was already a rookie mistake.

Wrong. Basic free-market principles escape your grasp, don't they? The advertisers rent space from Ace. The donors are just another way of saying gift-givers.  Ace owns this site, and he rents server space and bandwidth for it. Your opinion is just as valuable as mine- that is, not very. It resides here at his pleasure- not mine, definitely not yours. Something else you may want to consider- you aren't the deciding factor in Ace's popularity. Talk about rookie mistakes... 

4) You actually have the nerve to compare AoSHQ to LGF.

Only as regards this banning attempt. I mean, how gauche?

After having explained to you that it's his site, not yours, he pretty much has the right to kick you out without so much as a by-your-leave. The fact that he hasn't pretty much puts paid to your absurd accusation.

5) "It looks to me you're taking a pretty good beating. I'm beginning to lean towards having your sorry ass booted from the island. "

You get a vote. You're free to express your opinion. For now. As long as it's the right opinion. I'd urge you to look inward at how easily you've been led to wanting to shut down a voice you disagree with, instead of fighting speech with more speech. You're becoming everything you ever hated - and so easily.

The ONLY reason I get a vote is Ace opened it up to the readership. So far, it's running in your favor, simply because you are providing entertainment. Right or wrong opinion? I really don't care. Ace could ban me, it's his perogative. Like I told you, it's his soapbox. GET YOUR OWN IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT HERE.  I'm sure you will find some in your part of the political spectrum that will be happy to lick your balls and agree with you. LGF is a lot like that.  

6) "Most, if not all bannings were for engaging in the kind of behavior you exhibit right now- being a pointless asshat."

Really? Ace only bans pointless asshats? How is that different from the attitude that Charles Johnson has exhibited, except in its scope. Charles thinks most anyone who disagrees with him is a pointless asshat. Is that the stick we are measuring by? Whether or not Ace thinks a comment is made by a pointless asshat? How does that differ from Charles in any meaningful way? Or Barack Obama? Or the SEIU?

You're kidding. No. I can see it. You're earnestly serious. You really believe Ace has banned literally thousands from his site simply for disagreement. Newsflash, delusional one: Ace can ban any of us anytime he wishes for any reason his Ewok heart desires. That he doesn't kinda sets fire to your argument, ne-ce'st pas?


7) "Ace isn't the one who made fun of you. We are."

I'm not concerned by that. Have some fun with it. If Ace wants to make fun of me, or anyone else. Doesn't bother me in the least. If we can't have a little fun with this, what's the point, really?

Then- why....so serious?
Better still- quit worrying about me, and start worrying about yourself.

The political strategist used his endearing strategy of calling of us fucking morons who knew nothing of political strategy, blah, blah, before revealing his strategy of playing the strategic "I'm unemployed and fear for my family" card. Annnyyyway, he actually aplogized to me when I suggested he follow his own strategic advice which also applied to his strategic name calling. I admit, I'm perversly pleased by perhaps being the only person who's driven him to apologize.

Possibly he has been unemployed so long he's forgotten what actual interaction with real human beings is supposed to look like.  Sort of like the Talosians: "Everything works, but they had never seen a woman before -- they had no idea what one should look like."

657 Banning people sucks.  Tools are tools, but why can't they be our tools?

658 How'd that work out for Bunning?

Did it advance our agenda? Get us any further down the field? Or did it result in a week of bad publicity for Republicans and result in a lot of pissed off unemployed people  ... only then to see Republcians overwhelmingly vote for the thing anyway a week later?

Exactly as I predicted it would.

Bunning wants to see Republicans fail on his way out of the Party ... because he's mad at them for dumping him. He's a troll. Why feed him?

Actually, I noticed that it got a few mentions of how Bunning was right, that Pelosi, Reid and Obama were completely ignoring pay-go in violation of their sanctimonious promises.  And the next time a Senator has the balls to pull the same move, it'll advance that meme a little further, until regular people start to ask why it is that Congress can't follow its own pay-go rule.

659 I said I wasn't gonna clean up that mess, and I meant it.

Keep the tool around for the sheer joy of watching his head explode, over and over and over...

What fun.

660 Keep him for now.  Let's see where this leads.  I know what it feels like to be banned, MSNBC's comment section no longer welcomes my input.  Heh, heh!

Posted by: Jaimo at March 31, 2010 02:55 PM (5yRUv)

661 Ban him.

Last night he's a big time political operator and the moron's are all err.. morons.
Tonight he's just a someguy with no other place to go.

Flush him.

Solid B+ to Warden for last night.  Nearly had an accident there.

662 Don't ban him, that thread was a laugh riot.

Posted by: rikdergis at March 31, 2010 03:20 PM (GOx5K)

663 673 Banning this guy would let him fly the Free Speech Martyr flag high and proud.

What?  You mean he's not doing it now?  Ban him or he will continue to hijack threads.  Sure, it's funny now since we get to mock him, but that will get old after a few days.  A few weeks and people will stop visiting the comments aka "The Someguy Show". 
This is Ace's site and he's well within his rights to ban people who start out threads with "Let me ask you something you dumb mother fucker:"  Most of us have to work our way up to that kind of talk and even then it is usually all in good fun except when directed at trolls.  Come to think of it, there's a word for people who start threads like that: troll.

664 Is this douche-bag banned yet?
The suspense is killing me.

Posted by: 1idvet at March 31, 2010 04:48 PM (iMyIW)

665 yeah, he's pretending to be a banned martyr of free speech, whether he's banned or not, and whether he's being fucked with because of his POV or his disruptive behavior.

He's the dude who wants to sell child porn in Sunday School, or call 911 1000 times.  This isn't about viewpoint discrimination.

666 I'd ban the dickweed, but it's not my blog. Of course, I'd open him up for massive abuse first, because [1] he deserves it, and [2] it's fun. :-)

Posted by: Tully at March 31, 2010 04:58 PM (A9IXO)

667 Your blog, your rules.

I seldom read the comments here (except for a fast breaking item still in fast breaking status).

Posted by: Larry Sheldon at March 31, 2010 05:18 PM (OmeRL)

668 Who??? Yeah, like I'm going to read nearly 700 comments.

Posted by: Antibubba at March 31, 2010 06:29 PM (htxRJ)

669 OK. Based on the fact that we are *still* deriving humor from "someguy" in other posts, we need to keep him around for a while....just so lurkers get the joke. And the foot in mouth disease may spread to other posters... Don't let go of the "man under the stairs" fun!

#2 -- I am Sparticus...well, not really...

This is a trap, isn't it.  Get all us lurkers to come out...maybe snag a few other trolls.  Anyway, as a certified lurker I say keep the guy - that is, "someguy" - because I derive imense pleasure at the regular smack downs (or is that punch downs) he receives.  And, it is amusing that like a weeble-wobble...he just keeps popping back up - saying something idiotic like "look I don't fall down but you're all f-ng idiots for posting clips from miseryNBC."

Btw- there is something cool about being near post #700 - kinda like being on the edge of a cliff in a slight breeze that could gust at any moment, or being in the stadium after Metallica has packed it up and only the groupies who've passed out and are now regaining consciousness are left lying around...almost like being immortal.  Well, almost...

someguy: I mentioned in a post the other day that one of the reasons that I haven't donated to your blog is that you ban people who you disagree with or who you find disagreeable.

Early this month, someguy used his supposed desperate unemployment status to bolster his rabid argument against Bunning's stance on blocking the bill extending benefits. Personally, when I'm in desperate financial need, I don't go around deciding which special blog deserves money that I need to survive. Let alone go around claiming to be a conservative who just "happens" to support libs in wanting to ignore pay-go and pass the unfunded bill. He's a shit-stirring lefty and/or pathological liar. But I guess that's redundant.

329 I laughed for 10 minutes when that was posted on the MSNBC thread.  My first thought when he posted that first comment was that he probably eats a lot of spit in restaurants, and then that wonderful post confirmed my theory. 

Still, ban him.  He has reached the half-wit stage, and will quickly go stale after that.

674 I say ban him and raise money at the same time. Auction the Banhammer to the highest bidder. When wifey finds some extra cash, I'm in for $50.

It's not his inability to make a logical point nor his attitude.

It's the fucking whining!

Either be an asshole or a minister but for the love of narcissus be a fucking man. Take ownership of whatever persona you want to present here and stick to it. The only thing worse than an ass is a whiney ass.

He's going to get himself banned sooner or later so just go ahead and do it.

Banning people is a waste of time as they usually find a way to come back. When they reappear, they are even more annoying.
