Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: Trump

Trump's whole world is falling apart.
Trump is so terrible that he can't even have his world fall apart properly. You've been saying this for how long now? 2 years? It keeps being his worst nightmare and it'll all come together any moment now. Aaaany moment now. Probably tomorrow. Maybe the day after.

Hey, I only said "big long word salad gish gallop posts tend to make the commenter look loopy" - but I didn't mention any names.

Why would you read the above and immediately think of Sandokhan? ;)
No, Max, shitposting in S&C is not a good idea. Have one more warning before I give up on you. Keep your Wendy's-style clapdowns confined within AR.

How about beginning to apply Rule 6?
Okay, so you're still trying to come up with a way to make sandokhan look bad, and it's still not working. I'm sorry that you disagree, but his posts are absolutely chock-full of content. You're under no obligation to put in the time to read and understand them, but that won't change the reality of the matter.

Rule 6 is already being applied, just not to overtly suppress posters you personally dislike.

All I’m saying is that you should have a little blurb on low-content posting.
We already do. It's rule 5. If you want to shitpost, you can do so in Complete Nonsense and Angry Ranting.

Flat Earth Community / Re: FE Conference Denver

One thing I'd really like to do, and which I'm struggling to get much support with from the non-FES FE community, is to actually document the alternatives to UA. I've had some conversations with Globebusters and Ben Long to that effect, and while both said they'd contribute something, they've been fairly quiet so far.

There's a disagreement within the community, and that's fine. Much like how we showcase different maps, we could successfully portray multiple (non-)gravitational models while simply stating that one of them is preferred by the Society. I think it would go a long way towards alleviating some points of contention. After all, part of our mission statement is to document FET

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Question about UA

If an observer is located on Earth Pete they are being carried along with it. So the observer and the Earth would be stationary with respect to one another.
Indeed. However, this does not preclude them from otherwise experiencing their interaction with the Earth, which, by your own admission, defines the colloquial concepts of up and down.

Your failure is assuming that "up" is a standalone term, which needs to be separable from the human experience. It isn't. The direction of "up" just happens to be the direction in which the Earth is accelerating, and it's already well understood by anyone who interacted with their surroundings. If you prefer, you can simply think of it as an arbitrary direction which just happens to be perpendicular to the Earth's surface. It makes no difference how you choose to describe said direction, so long as we both know what it is. And, shockingly, we do.

Up relative to what?
An observer located on Earth.

Fair enough. I'll remain sceptical but I do agree it's at least possible.

To be fair, I think webchat sometimes masquerades timeouts as quits
But you provided timestamps. 13 seconds is not a timeout.

Hit-and-run shitposting? Now flapping is enough to get me banned? What a joke.
It's very easy to tell the difference, you know.

If he would just take the occasional ban as a nudge in the right direction rather than restarting this victim narrative, everything would be fine.
Agreed.

Saddam
is saying there is an unclear standard of behavior based on what others do not get banned for.
Saddam doesn't even know who's banning him. It's almost always me (and no, Parsifal doesn't in any way encourage me to do it), but whenever it happens, his go-to response is something along the lines of calling Parsifal autistic. I have to call his judgement into question based on that.

People like to think their own farts don't stink. I'm have no doubt I'm guilty of this too, but if we're going to have this discussion, we need some concrete examples. I've tried as hard as I can to try and find fault in my IRC bans, but I'm not seeing it. That doesn't mean I'm not wrong, but we've had nothing but assertions and allegations here so far.

My problem begins and ends with Parsifal.
It doesn't. Most of the time, it's me who bans you. Indeed, the last two times you've lost your shit at Parsifal, it was because I banned you from IRC. Let us not forget the Great Fucking Off.

discussions
It takes two people to have a discussion.

Should my discussions not meet your particular criteria for a riveting read, that's really neither here nor there.
Indeed, that is neither here nor there. As I said, the problem is your complete disregard for the discussions already taking place when you demand that the channel be hijacked to discuss the latest capeshit movie. If people ignore you and try to carry on with their discussion, you just keep spamming your shit until you get banned. Try not doing that and see if your situation improves.

You are a moderator, not a curator.
You're mistaking the IRC channel (which is a small space for regulars to enjoy) for the forum (which is free and open).

Interesting that the RE peanut gallery is ignoring the fact that the route presented is not a triangle. It's almost as if you weren't interested in resolving the critical contradiction in your self-proclaimed victory.

Reproducing this flight path on any FE map would look very different from a triangle. Unsurprisingly, a flawed assumption leads to a flawed conclusion.

Oh, I agree, and I frequently accuse Parsifal of "doing a Saddam" for that exact reason. Nonetheless, I would argue that Saddam is the worst offender here, in terms of frequency. He rarely does anything else.

The "it was just a single shitpost" narrative is one I disagree with. The reason Saddam attracts the ire of many regulars is the endless monologues about stuff no one else wants to talk about. He'll butt in in the middle of a conversation and insist that we must now discuss the most recent Marvel movie, and how many black people there were in it.

In that way, he's really no different from your standard "HOLY FUK ERTH IS ROUND AHAHAH" noobs. We're not going to change everyone to suit his conversational, uh, style.

ITT: Saddam really wants to talk to people who don't want him to talk to them*. His way of persuasion? Talk some more.
