  • So madmouth--I'm actually unacquainted with "-_-" as a "facepalm" signifier (you'll forgive me; I'm old). Also, I agree with chained and rolig, but I do like the fact that on Wordie people can register their distaste without the original post-person feeling censored.

    Additionally, I just want to point out that wherever phony umbrage is taken, I'll be there. :-D

    P.S. Yarb, only 88%?

  • *takes all umbrage so there isn't any left on this page*

    October 29, 2009

  • Sure, Pro, take whatever you need.

    October 29, 2009

  • Being acquainted with -_-, I think I got madmouth's intentions immediately.

    But can I have some leftover umbrage?

    October 29, 2009

  • MM, the "might" referred to the possibility of your disdaining not only the bigots (which I am sure you do) but also the overanxious liberals who worry about never offending anyone, even those who would like to implement Shariah law in Ontario. By the way, I never take umbrage; there's so much of it around that it's pretty near worthless to me.

  • 'So the one-legged jockey says--'

    'What'd he say?'

    'So the one-legged jockey says, "Don't worry about me, baby--I ride side-saddle!"'

    October 29, 2009

  • Yes!

    October 29, 2009

  • Sorry, bilby. I was having my quiet time...

    So--this guy walks in to his doctor's office and says "I'm feeling very depressed. This morning I looked in the mirror and all I could see was gray hair, an enlarging bald spot, bags under my eyes, wrinkles under my chin, yellowing teeth, and splotchy skin."

    The doctor replied, "Well, at least your eyesight is still good."

    *rimshot*

  • read twice before objecting, please! presumptuous umbrage on Wordie really ruins my day.

    I don't like the thought, rolig, that while it may occur to you that I _might_ disdain bigots, there's always that 'evidence' that could turn the needle over to the other side.

    October 29, 2009

  • Brackets on punctoglyph please, rolig.

    October 29, 2009

  • Isn't this about the point in the conversation where skipvia turns up with some fart jokes?

    October 29, 2009

  • Well, it did occur to me that MM might (justifiably, perhaps) disdain both the bigots on Youtube and the so-called "pussies" (sorry, C_b; I know, people who use the word "pussies" like this are dicks) whose zeal for multiculturalism extends even to considering whether to allow the practice of Shariah law (which is a current issue in Canada, which I believe is where MM grew up). And there is, by the way, plenty of evidence that Miss Mouth has a fondness for provocative, non–politically correct words and phrases. My point was merely to register a dislike for the whole "dangerous agenda" argument. I certainly am not interested in policing any Wordie content. But part of the freedom of Wordie is the freedom to say "I don't like this and here's why" without anyone feeling like they're being either censored or censured.

  • It can be hard to detect sarcasm online when you don't know the person who's commenting, but we all know each other('s voices) to some extent. For example, I'm 96% sure that rolig is not a mormon (or at any rate not a practising one), 88% sure that ressetee has a sweet tooth and 107% sure that chained_bear objects to the term "pussies" being used as a perjorative. Similarly, I'm fairly confident in my assumption that madmouth is not a self-proclaiming islamophobic bigot. So when I first read her comment it never crossed my mind that what she was actually saying might be "ethnomasochists are pussies who are letting their country get taken over by the Islamic Agenda". Because that would make no sense.

  • I was going to include you in the list, reesetee--but I didn't want to be presumptuous.

    -_- is not abstruse in my circles; it's a pretty standard pictorial representation of a headdesk or "oh, brother". let me also point out the phrase new word bandied around by bigots in the original comment.

    it's sort of beneath any Wordie to consider it consistent with another Wordie's character to self-identify as a bigot...I hope.

    October 29, 2009

  • Well, MM, you should put it in quotation marks if it's a quote; that would at least indicate that it is not necessarily your view. I admit that I don't know how to interpret the punctoglyph "-_-": does that mean sarcasm?

    Unfortunately, with political and social discourse in America (especially, and of course especially on the Internet) sinking to new depths everyday, it's getting more and more difficult to tell the difference between sarcasm, hyperbole, intentional insult, strategic prevarication, disinformation, sheer ignorance and downright nastiness. What tends to stand out, however, because it's so rare, is serious, respectful, informed and well-considered comment.

    October 29, 2009

  • And maybe the reesetees. I wasn't sure it was sarcasm myself. Hard to tell when it's just type. Quotation marks might help. :-)

    October 29, 2009

  • I ought to put it into quotation marks next time for the c_bs and roligs of the world, eh?

    October 29, 2009

  • I wasn't policing anything. I was just making a comment. Chill.

    (Also, your sarcasm was not "fairly obvious.")

    October 29, 2009

  • do you--y'all--also object to fairly obvious sarcasm?

    I make the bold suggestion that taking upon oneself the work of noting/policing (in a fairly low-key capacity, granted) offensive Wordie content can be an impediment to thorough reading comprehension.

    October 28, 2009

  • True dat.

    October 28, 2009

  • I object to the whole clause "who are letting their country get taken over by the Islamic Agenda"; I remember when people started talking about the "gay agenda". The fact is that the people who talk in such terms are usually doing so to promote their own agenda of fear- and hate-mongering, as a way of ensuring that people who think like them (i.e. narrow-mindedly, selfishly, unimaginatively, naively) stay in charge of things.

    October 28, 2009

  • I object to the term "pussies" being used as a pejorative.

    October 28, 2009

  • new word bandied around by bigots on Youtube (yeah, I know--great place to follow 'discussion') to describe those pussies who are letting their country get taken over by the Islamic Agenda -_-
