Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 09, 2019

Rcade, Please tell the class why you let Goatman back after all the life time evictions from the site? Is it just to increase more posts, regardless of your previous actions? Since you have allowed him to return, you may wish to post the back and forth he and you have shared regarding reinstatement. Is he on triple secret probation, or have you just blithely let him waltz back as if he is a "normal" poster? How long till you let AFLAK back? I believe an explanation to those of us who have abided by the moderation rules for years is in order. Why are you treating him so differently? Are you trying to get more trolls in the group simply to boost comment post numbers? Seriously, WTF ?

some here on the DR are so stupid that they get baited into the same juvenile argument, by the same douchenozzels, day after day.

more than likely this is just one of the usual -------- rcade desperately needs to keep those allergic to the sun coming back to the same circular --------
You are a meal ticket

My suggestion is to wean yourself away from commenting on this unproductive waste of time site that has zero meaning and even less ethics

He can dish it out, but he can't take it, and that's ALWAYS been the case.

If America's shores were ever invaded, right-wing trolls like Goatman would instantly cry for mommy like the whiny little bitches they are ....

Again, I know you know what I mean.

Just looking for definition of terms. The moderation policy and the implications of permanent bans seem to be quite arbitrary.
Seriously, all the usual trolls really get their panties in a bundle over defense of other trolls.
Rcade can answer for himself, he doesn't need the troll peanut gallery to field his questions.
The question is valid.
If he feels the need to stomp on me for asking, so be it.
If Permanent evictions are just empty promises he can admit that.
Like I said. Is Aflack gonna return ?

After a long time passes we occasionally give someone another chance. We of course talk to them about making a better effort to get along.

But I think everyone here can admit that the standard for getting along is kind of low here. A lot of regulars show up to kick the bleep out of the same people every day.

There are times we've kicked someone out and I've regretted it. Zatoichi could often be incredibly abusive in his comments but he also was a fascinating character.

Shortly after that, you booted him again.

No. He's never coming back.

I like MadScientist and enjoy reading his posts, so this isn't a dig at him.

But MS knew some very personal details about AFK he threw at him during an argument the two were having.

It really pissed AFK off and he literally said he's never coming back.

That was the last thing I read by him.

I'm not sure how to access his user page without clicking on his username, and I'm not sure how to access the DR archives.

But I'm sure if you were to locate his last post you'd see what I mean.

One way to do it is to use the Wayback machine, but it's hit or miss that way because what is saved is random and not very far from a complete record.

The WayBack machine is: archive.org   Just enter a URL and go back in time. And, yes, it is a reference to that WayBack machine. :)

However, there's a search engine trick you can use to restrict your searches to this specific website;

site:drudge.com

add that to your search request. I know it works with duckduckgo.com and google.

For everyone who calls themselves a liberal ...

If a right-wing hack posts something that bothers you, tell them how wrong they are, and if necessary, tell them to go get bent -- easy peasy.

If you're a right-wing hack trying to advance a hacktastic argument, come up with a new idea/argument because there are no new conservative ideas anymore, they've all been used up the last 40 years. Except for tax cuts ... and tax cuts are literally sucking the life out of America.

Defending the groups' right to protest is deemed support of Nazis by every left wing zealot here and yet the ACLU came to their defense and helped them get the permit reinstated. By you own demented logic that means the ACLU ARE NAZI SYMPATHIZERS and NO LIE FROM ANY OF YOU will CHANGE THAT.
Trucks go through crowds driven by Muslims and you lecture that not all Muslims are to blame. A car goes into a crowd and you lecture that everyone not thinking like you is to blame.
LIARS....."one DRUNKEN Christmas eve..."....The STENCH of the liar is still strong.

The only indespensible person here is rcade.

I think it's to control oil prices. Rumor is he works for Exxon/Mobile now.

But honestly if you are a journalist (and he is) you can't censor people. The best defense is just to fire back. Here, this video explains it all: www.youtube.com

Wow. Check out the total meltdowns, especially OWS and Pinche Oaf!

And the hypocrisy! Wow.

when I started posting again, I got an email saying there would be a lot of exploding heads.

OWS, this is what, like the 4th or 5th thread you've made about me. I love you too, darling! But not enough to start a threat about you. Maybe after a few more dates.....

OWS complaining that other people follow the rules. LOL this post alone is breaking the rules since one of them is not to talk about moderation. And it's full of personal attacks which is against the rules.

Sorry OWS, but the double standard negates everything.

Pinche Oaf, OWS doesn't like people breaking the rules. And one of the rules is no personal attacks. Be careful or he will start at thread on you to, as well as the rest of the hypocrites like himself and you.

Continue with your meltdown.

Also, I have a sneaky suspicion that as we get closer to the Democratic Primaries and the 2020 General Election, Rcade is going to be more active again in posting what he thinks, just like the old days ...

And allowing someone like Goatman to return is just part of that.

If I'm wrong, so be it.

But I would welcome Rcade swinging his spiked-ball-on-a-chain intellect around to smack down some of the idiocy that can pollute the threads -- even if it's occasionally aimed at me, I'm not a afraid to be challenged.

No, you have it all backwards.

Beavis and -------- was a hit. It was popular. Why? Because two stupid stick-cartoon figures on MTV were pointing out the music that was supposedly passing for good music, was actually lame as hell -- and their stupidity was actually a forerunner to the vapid and mindless nihilism that America is experiencing today.

Beavis and -------- is the highest art form in the history of all history.

It doesn't surprise me that it flies over your head -- no offense.

To say it another way, the TV show 'All in The Family' and the bigoted Archie Bunker character was a character to be made fun of, but you obviously don't feel that way -- you lament the passing of those TV days when off-color (now they're called racist) words were on the airwaves.

Satire is meant to be laughed at, not used as value judgement's projected onto others.

And, yes, Winger still sucks, lol.

I was going to make a post of the cry babies with samples of their own posts. But I stopped and asked myself, "Why?" Everyone knows who the crybaby snowflakes are and the nature or their posts. So it would be pointless to C&P posts from Chiefmoses, Pinche Oaf, OWS (Of course, he's the one who is clearly obsessed with me after his 4th or 5th thrad about me he's put up), Abortionmonsoon, Bocaink, truth hurts (who can't stand it when I hut him with the truth) and angry dad.

There are a lot of other liberals or posters with whom I have butted heads who didn't jump on the bandwagon with the aforementeioned losers who can only puke out "You suck, goatman". They are worth adversaries and I will continue to but heads with them. I love that. It's a lot better than engaging lame-o types like OWS and Pinche Oaf.

As I said earlier, I got an email saying a lot of heads would explode. They predictibly did. But I'm surprised at the lack of gray matter on the walls. Well, not really. LOL

But the lefties and adversaries who did ont not have exploding heads are as good in my bood as the ones who agree with me.

Listed losers above: Take a lesson. Especially OWS and Pinche Oaf.

but hey, if you listed losers above think Im weong, tell me. I'll gladly follow your refutal with a sampling of your posts on any given day. I hope one of you losers object. OWS? Pinche Oaf? Let's year it. Or do you not want to see samples of your own posts under the spotlight? DO you not want to be seen as hypocrits?, showflakes, and cry babies? This goes for Chiefmoses, Abortionmonsoon, Bocaink, truth hurts, and angry dad as well. Bring it on, hypocrites. Tell me why your pointless name calling is oh, so superior to my posts.

I think the biggest hypocrite is Pinche Oaf. H orived ut ut within a few days of my return to the DR, I posted a cool thread about images from Jupiter. In fact, rcade moved it to the front page. But Cry baby snowflake Pinche Oaf came to it and ---- a giant turn into it with a personal attack on me. It was a completely apolitical thread. I did not mention Pinche Oaf. No one had. in fact, I had not interacted with him or any of his threads for over two years. Yet he jumps in with a completely unprovoked personal attack on me. And this lose has the chutzpah to bitch about me? Really? LOL How can someon like Pinche Oaf be so ------- cluesess about his self perceived self-righteousness? How? I realize there are a handful who see him as a hero for this. But they are getting what they pay for. NOthing.

I did not much care for AFKABL2 and said so many times, though I do admit I gave him a longer leash than a lot of others on the DR I don't care much for. But it sickens me some lowlife threw the loss of his child into his face publily here. If anyone knows who this is, please email me. There is nothing worse than losing a child. And for a DR user to use that as a weapson --- ----. I don't even know what to say.

Hey Goatman -

You didn't like AFKABL2? Was it because you two right-wing hacks (no offense) are from the same bolt of cloth?

And Babbles was trying to cut in on your hacktastic action, right?

How was your cheeseburger, tasty? Careful with your cholesterol, big fella. Morning Joe and Rush Limbaugh need you.

Welcome back to the mighty Drudge Retort -- have a great evening!

I stopped reading there becaue I did not say that. I said I did not much care for him. But you have long proven your ineptitude with nuances of the English language, so I'll keep that in mind as always when I read your posts.

I'd would posit the front page has far more to do it with it. Rcade intentionally biases the headlines because it's a parody of Drudge Report. Intentional bias gets you down-rated by algorithm.
