Oh.

crocker

Recognize this face? Nay? It’s Chris Crocker, the leave Britney alone guy. Yeah, some people are caressed by the warm terrycloth bathrobe of puberty, and some people get smashed in the face with the puberty brickbat.

The Metro tells me he tried doing porn for a while. You needn’t ask what kind of porn, and you shouldn’t Google it if you don’t want to see free willy.

I have got to stop reading the Metro.

So…how ’bout that Twitter, huh? If you want a good roundup of the current state of play, yesterday’s overnight thread at Ace’s has some links (in the middle of the post). Short version: Twitter goes SJW, bans righty, many righties quit in protest.

I’m a Twitter nonentity. I went back last Sunday and spent a lazy day reminding myself why I never really cottoned to it: it’s like being shouted at simultaneously by dozens of deranged door-to-door salesmen.

Yeah, I deleted my Twitter and Facebook accounts over the weekend…enough of this crap.

I never really understood the attraction of Twitter as well. Back in the 90’s I did a lot of Internet Relay Chat (IRC)…kinda overdosed and cured my attraction to any kind of ‘social networking’. I guess they figure it should be left-wing slanted because it has the word ‘social’ in it…pinko fascists.

Back when there was an ocean between us, Uncle B and I used to IRC. If you’ve got a clever group of people and you get in the zone, it can be loads of fun.

Same with Twitter. Ace, for example, could go on a tear and be wildly funny.

At the moment, though, it’s like solidly the Trump people bitching at the Cruz people bitching at the Rubio people, which isn’t much fun at all.

He says he stills identifies as a “woman” but cant afford to cut off his naughty bits.

I’m surprised the twats havent gone after Nick Searcy. But he doesnt go after the “feminists” – only the racists or the racists go after him.

I closed my Twitter account in 2014. I’d had it since 2006, but my one and only post freaked me out so badly that I took it down within seconds of putting it up.

“At the moment, though, it’s like solidly the Trump people bitching at the Cruz people bitching at the Rubio people, which isn’t much fun at all.”

And if you say anything provocative, out of sheer boredom, you get slammed for whatever the PC sin du jour is.

Never had a Twitter anything. Geez, it’s all I can do to read my email and browse a few obscure web sites.

Numerous articles say that Twitter is bleeding money, and this article
http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2015/11/conversation-smoosh-twitter-decay/412867/

from The Atlantic last November attempts to explain why. Essentially, people stopped feeling free to casually express their opinions on matters. This censorship craze is not going to help. It’ll become like the French Revolution where after they ran out of enemies to guillotine, they started going after each other.

Well Some Vegetable, if you’re able to keep your head down, and on, during the ‘cleaning out the enemies’ phase, the ‘going after each other’ phase can be quite schadenfreudelicious.*

*coined by Jonah Goldberg I believe.

Did you ever take a look to see who is left around?
Everyone I thought was cool is six feet under ground
They tried to get me lots of times and now they’re coming after you
I got out and I’m hid in safe, maybe you can get out too
I’m still alive and well, still alive and well
Every now and then I know it’s kind of hard to tell
But I’m still alive and well…
Still alive and well, still alive and well

Well-said (quoted?), SVeg. Well said. Twitter delenda est.

Veg, thanks for the J. Winter. I miss that guy, seen him play maybe thirty times. Now I’ve got “Going Down to Dallas” looping in my head.
“..take my razor and my gun. Lotta people looking for trouble, ooh Lord gonna give ’em some.”

Any Benny Hill fans? Is the funny-talking northerner still a big comedy meme in Blighty?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
