They poke fun at Facebook, but I haven't seen as much vitrol as I do here ... as the song mentioned anonymity, facebook isn't anonymous, if you have reasonable friends, social shame goes a long way.

I doubt Aborted, or Speaks does their schtick on Facebook. People here have actually told me to die, as discussed, this person is only a step away from a mass murderer.

@Mackris: Excellent point about anonymity and lack of it. I fully agree that the two mentioned as well as Rein, Pincheand their ilk would never do their thing on Facebook with their real names. I, too, had a death threat here years ago. I notice that person is still around.

That said, I see a lot of pseudonyms on a FB blog on which I am an admin. Most of them are from overseas. It seems the Americans almost always use their name, or at least something that sounds like a real name.

No doubt that hiding behind a fake screen name emboldens the nutters to lash out unrestrained.

I've outed myself a couple of times on this site and made some great connections on FB, LinkedIn, and my art websites.

True there are "spoof" accounts, but they tend to be trying to get you to buys stuff, not argue/troll

As always ,a well thought out (for you) response.

You are so full of hate that you didn't even notice the video had definite liberal bias. But you saw "Goatman", and the jerk's knee jerked. You are so predictible. And sad and angry. Glad I'm not you.

RoC: Good job! I was mentally assigning the characters in the vid to DR members. The first one that came to mind was Captain Conspiracy... ANd we matched on a few others, especially the trolls. Snoofy was at the top of my liest there. .

Though the wrong gender, I saw JeffJ as CHakra Kahn, the peacemaker.

Nope.

He and MadScientist got into a big blow up, and AFK got really upset.

He literally quit that night and hasn't been back.

Agreed.

He's legendary.

My fave was his 9/11 theory that the Twin Towers were intentionally made with "Thermobaric Steel" which was specifically designed to react with JP-5 and oxygen so that the buildings collapsed when hit in that exact spot.

That one made the Smokestacks on the Moon seem reasonable.

#22 What about when he was convinced that a missile was loaded onto one of the 9/11 jetliners and it was shot a split second before the plane made impact? That was classic.

Probably the most remembered words on The Drudge Retort are "car antenna"

Wait. Is that for real?

Because that sounds way too out there even for BBob.

#25 | Posted by jpw at 2019-08-09 12:14 AM | Reply

Yes, that's for real. He found film footage that someone had slowed down frame-by-frame and the frame just before impact shows a bubble appear right in front of the plane's nose. I was convinced it was a missile.

#26 | Posted by JeffJ at 2019-08-09 12:17 AM | Reply

Sorry for the typo. I was convinced it was a missile = HE was convinced it was a missile.

#27 | Posted by JeffJ at 2019-08-09 12:21 AM | Reply

I'm familiar with the missile conspiracy.

My ex's brother in law was a big conspiracy nut who tried to convince me of that one.

But the one about the buildings being built with steel that would melt in reaction to jet fuel is a new one to me.

#25 and 28

Yeah, it was special, BBob came up with that theory one day and took a terrible beating by Zatoichi that was joyous to behold.
