Anyone want to have their own forum?

By Patrick following x   2018 Jan 7, 2:05pm 3,309 views   221 comments   watch   sfw   quote     share    


I'm working on making it easy to spin up new clones of patrick.net under different domain names.

Anyone have a particular love of a topic and want to be a co-founder of a clone based on that topic? You'd be moderator-god, and own half of the rights to the domain name and the database (the source code would remain open source and available to the public for free). I do the tech, you do writing, moderation, and marketing.

The goal would be to build traffic and revenue (probably advertising) and then sell the thing ASAP, splitting the proceeds.

If you're interested, what topic would it be, and do you have a domain name to use?

You have to atone first

@iwog.
Why don't you take your 35 users and start iwog.net. I would check it out. It would be a great opportunity to start a moderated site on politics, real estate, and investing. You could delete any post you thought stupid and ban any users with bad ideas.

Like I said, atone and repair because I don't know of a single person left posting here who could actually run a forum with more than a dozen drone clones.



I'm not so sure iwog.net is such a great name.

It is short and memorable but it might be considered a slur by certain segments of sjw subculture.

That’s what I thought too. However he set me straight. His name is Paul, got the nickname “Pauliwog” in school. Shortened it to Iwog for this forum handle. Pretty obscure!

A joke site where someone posts "as Trump" frequent posts steams of self adulation. I voted for the man, and I think it would be funny though considering his personality.

No one is going to volunteer to run a forum Patrick. Not from the remaining users on your website. Besides you're just going to let Piggy come in and burn the place down anyway like you've been doing for years.

Trolls only destroy. They cannot create. You've given the entire forum over to trolls and you don't even realize it. Now when no one volunteers to actually lead a discussion from the tiny echo chamber that remains, to actually work at a topic in a way that invites people to participate, no hands go up. What a surprise!

Imagine what will happen if you let Onvacation run a forum on global warming. How many people will join just to listen to him type "Is anyone going to answer my question?" 400 fucking times in a row? This is all you have left and when I point it out, you're not even willing to discuss it.

I actually invested time and money here and you've made me regret it.

I tried many times, over the past few years, to start some discussions about Cannabis in this open air prison once known as the land of the free. I would have loved to have some discussions and opinions bounced about on the topic, but all Patrick.net has ever done is marginalize me for it. Your loss, not mine. In the past five weeks I’ve accelerated my timeline from retiring at forty, to possibly some time later this year.

I would have liked nothing more than the opportunity to give something back to a community that has given to me in the past.

Yoir decision to allow CiC to stomp out most everyone else’s right to Free Speech very well may have cost you big bucks. You asked in a thread how to invest in the coming Canna-boom, and I gave you the safest play Pick n Shovel play that fit your criteria of having a dividend. SMG is only up 15% in the months since. Most everything else in the sector gave me 3-400% returns in December!

Comeuppance is a beautiful thing.

I don't agree with your conclusion Iwog. You are being overly dramatic I think. Whatever personal ego issue you have between you and Goran, is between you two.

The site really more involved into politics these days, because that is what is relevant to everyday life. Considering that this kind of talk gets heavily prosecuted by employers, government, etc... We can't all live in 2006 crash forever.

I'm not volunteering to run a forum, because it's responsibility I simply don't have ability or time for. I think patrick.net is a better place anyway.

It's actually a better place without people like Dan on here screaming that there are 45 different genders. And you originally were a great contributor. I personally looked forward to your investment posts, and was a big fan of yours through the gold run up. But man, when Trump won, you went off the deep end and became like a caged animal. Tatupu never actually argued anything valid. He just circle jerked everyone with straw man arguments.

Sooo, it looks like when Trump won, you all left because you couldn't stand the abuse. Not to mention the same abuse many had suffered during the last 4 miserable ass years of Obama.

Blame Trump. It's all his fault.

I do agree with you though. The advent of Trump caused Patrick to let the forum go.

I think a really great well moderated site for serious political discussion has a lot of potential, but it would be substantially different from this forum. How do you moderate it in a fair way. That is the question. It's not just a matter of not calling people names. Ultimately you need very intelligent moderators on both sides of the political spectrum cutting out the trolls, and the content free emotional arguments.

Clearly there is a market for intelligent discussion. E.g. consider Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris and countless others on youtube and pocasts.

After most of the sector boomed 3x + over the past month, there was a short lived 20% ish dip. Sessions is a Failed Losef Swampee, and he and Trump are doing significant economic damage to Our Country. Fuck um, they can suck my fat dick, fade Trumps Republican America, go all in on Canada. You too can become rich, in spite of these halfwits and their Daddy Trump.

Dude, he's offering the Pat.net style forum for FREE including Tech support.

Take it and start a "Profit off the coming Marijuana Boom" site.

I tease you sometimes because sometimes you come off as "Marijuana will save the world", but I would link articles and shit, even though I don't care much about weed though I think it should be legalized 100%.

Frankly I think it should be more like patrick.net/marijuana or patrick.net/thedonald or patrick.net/Oprah2020 or whatever. But hey! I might take up patrick.net.

I have two ideas: South Florida or East Coast Florida Real Estate forum, a "Go Donald" type forum. Getting into my busy season but I'm considering it.

Yeah, It's been moving to politics for a long, long time. It didn't start in the Summer of 2015. And it was no one person's doing. I think it was a slow transition from Real Estate to Economics to Politics.

Here’s the thing pal. I’m a big boy with thick skin and a thicker skull.

I couldn’t give less a fuck if you take up an anti-American position because you think you’re teasing me. You can’t tease me. I’m unteasable.

Cannabis/Hemp Prohibition has far reaching implications, all of which are directly harmful to every citizen, past and present, and a spit to the face of Freedom.

No matter how far down the wrong path ‘they’ have taken on this issue, the only correct response is to walk it back immediately. I’ve never said that “Marijuana will save the World”. What I have said is that ending Prohibition is all benefits and no costs. So who the hell is running the War on Drugs, and why and how do they continue eith it?

What would a true MAGA response be to USFEDGOV hemp/cannabis Prohibition?

Good Faith is dead here. Patrick Killelea has created an environment where if I pursue something like that here, I run the risk of the person behind the Sniper handle doxxing me and potentially using the Right Wing gov unionized gang of jackboots to actually harm me in the real world.

Do you see why I think your position is a little Over The Top sometimes? Most countries in the world, including in Europe, ban Marijuana - even if it's decriminalized it's not legal in most places.

Of Course the past regime against it is stupid. But it's not the pressing issue of the day in my opinion, by several country miles, and I don't think enforcing Federal Marijuana laws is the death knell of the Republic.

Yes, i am

Legalización is code for putting the economic rent stream on the books.

Why do you need the Federal Government to intervene with citizens who desire to cultivate flowers on their private property.

You do realize that hemp/cannabis Prohibition is less than a century old? What was going on early 20th century that required the USFEDGOV intervene with Prohibitions on Hemp and Cannabis?

Why did the Founding Fathers fail to safeguard us against the evils of Marijuana and Hemp, in the first place? Aside from the fact that they were pretty much all in the trade.

I’ve seen some Republicans claim that “the liberals “ ruined everything. Oh and that they enjoyed the benefit of consuming Cannabis in their home state. Thanks wholly to liberals fighting back against the Conservatives War against Americans.

But dude, seriously. The fact that the government can kick down your doors guns ablazing and if they’re trigger happy well you shouldn’t have been trying to remedy your ailments with flowers! So having your kids or dogs shot is your fault! And have your life ruined, all your assets seized, and ypur ass tossed in prison, it’s no big deal if the USFEDGOV keeps on with wasting taxpayers money on a war against Americans who love Freedom.

What’s really important is some inconsequential nonsense in Israel or Saudi Arabia. That’s what really matters to out of work America

Oh well at least all the jobless, voiceless, forgotten American factory workers can enjoy the stock market. If they get hubgry they can just eat their stock certificates!
