Patrick....I have an idea.

#misc @patrick We all want some kind of a balance between uncivil posts and normal posts.
Suppose, the moderator, instead of making the post disappear, redirects it to a thread just for "insults and uncivil" posts. All responses to insults, which are inevitable, would simply end up in the "insults and uncivil" threads. This way, everyone gets what they want from the site, and no one gets discouraged from posting. If someone does not like the "insults and uncivil" thread, they never have to click it on. Those who want to read or respond, will have there say too.
A couple of refinements will be needed, but if the concept makes sense to you, lets work on it.

Goran_K says
Your ego and bias is preventing you from admitting that he basically attempted to circumvent the site's rules and moderation

No it is not. I admitted that he was trying to circumvent the site's moderation - namely your moderation. In fact, if you go back to the original thread, you will see that I was the first person to call him out on it. I stated that he was not abusing his moderator power, which I think is what you meant when you wrote 'moderation ability'. Now, you are mis-characterizing what I wrote. Do you even see the difference?

Okay he didn't technically moderate anything beyond his subforum (since he couldn't anyway) but he was purposefully trying to create miscategorized topics within his own subforum so he could only moderate post. Small semantical difference. He was abusing the system to try and keep things under his control, and he was rightfully called out (thank you) and then from there it was a quick path to Iwog leaving once he knew he couldn't have his own kingdom within PatNet.

You and justme are leaving out those details because of your bias and are recanting what happened dishonestly.

Both of you are letting personal opinion get in the way of the fact that Iwog was the first (and only one) to abuse the new system of moderation.

I can only speak for myself, but I think that words matter, and it's not a small semantic difference. It's a substantive mis-characterization. For what it's worth, I believe that you are trying to be fair.

You might want to reread that sentence and try again.

it's all irrelevant; the high and mighty want the average joes on both sides to fight amongst themselves while they guide us into our new lives as serfs.

You all seem to be in general agreement with this notion.

The whole game, our loss of republic, was laid out in detail recently right here on patrick.net and it didn't get much notice. There's even various proposed solutions to regain our republic.

It was a good link with credit to Heraclitussstudent, not one to polarize using dirty tactics to end discussions either:

I recommend not only talking about it, but memorizing as much of it as you can.

Here's another link to talk about and memorize as much of it as you can.

Goran is doing a fine job. When the Left loses, they turn to censorship. Didn't work here, because Patrick knows better.

Corruption is like cockroaches and prostitution. You can never get rid of it.
Socialist countries have a lot more corruption, because the power rests in the hands of very few individuals. You think Maduro, Kim Jong Un, and Castro live as equals to their citizens?

True, but it's also true that we are getting more corruption of our political system here as more power is concentrated into the hands of our oligarchs.

They can simply buy our laws with campaign donations and lobbying, and use those laws to ensure that there is no challenge to their near-monopolies.

Cash flows in, cash is used to buy lawmakers, lawmakers divide us with bullshit identity politics and quietly pass laws which ensure the cash keeps flowing to the oligarchs. Rinse and repeat. Forever.

I cannot disagree. This is why we have corruption. It's still less corruption than socialism/communism where they have very few people in power.
In our case, we have a solution.....campaign finance reforms, lobbying, changes in law etc.
We have the means to make the right changes. We need to strive it.

Iwog was so polarizing, he laid out investment strategies with reasoning and a game plan time and time again over the years, and halfwits determined to be against him had to watch time and time again as he nailed trades bigly


Iwog is the trader who only talks abut his winners. Remember his hyperinflation by 2017 at the latest threads? Or his gold to 35000 arguments? How about his peak oil, "it can only go higher from here" back when oil was at $130/barrel? OR maybe his "I'm selling my equities" call back in 2014?

Iwog is a gambler who reports his lone winners that make him "gloriously rich".

Gold to 35000? Ha, that most definitely wasn’t Iwog. He was pointing more in the direction of 1000 and was reasonably on target. Can’t remember the others, but you can of throw your whole point under the bus with that gold comment.

.....and you voted for the biggest oligarch there is, whose lust for illegal power is his only guiding principle. smh. he thinks the DOJ should harass anyone who doesn't admire the length of his fingers. if someone laughs at one of his cronies they get investigated and sued. he sends his brain-challenged children as ambassadors and representatives to other countries.....and you think that's not all pure evidence of corruption and plutocracy? a man who won't release his tax returns? wow, you really guzzled the authoritarian koolaid.

If money = power and we give a tax break that favors the wealthy (oligarchs). Aren't we just giving the oligarchs more power? Still further adding to the corruption. If Trump wanted to make America great he would make tax law that taxes the rich wealthy oligarchs and takes a "chunk" of their wealth when they pass on to the other side.

You don't extinguisher the power of oligarchs by giving them a tax break.

You think if Hillary was President, corruption would suddenly come to an end? The negative issues you perceive would just disappear?
You got your vote, and that's all you get. Nothing more.

I know I don't think so. But at the same time I'm not holding my breath that Trump will make America Great again.

Here is a question, when was America Great? What time frame are we trying to relive?

I think America has been great since the civil war, and still is.
