What happened to it?
ho_fo / robeson started trying to contact said friend by friending her on FB when he realised it was a girl. Moker didn't like this, so he asked us to delete it and PN did.
Classic thread deletion reason.
Which is basically akin to saying "Gonna link her to this thread".
But yeah, I was way out of line.
and said 'the line is a dot to this guy'
I posted "Alright, Joey Tribbiani" and he was all "What you talking about?"
If you're gonna make the reference you gots to take the shabs
thats the link to this particular escapade
A man as busy as him wouldn't do that. Unless he got Siri to do it for him?
and then HoFo (who knew it was him?!) sent a friend request with the specific reason of messaging her the thread link and generally being a bell.
It was my oversight and HoFo ruthlessly exploited it.
I can post it again if you like, but to the actual film this time, then we can all pretend we have a valid counter argument when no-one can actually think of one (there must be!)
to know that Ho_Fo does stuff like this frequently.. right?
insidious trolling in that thread, can't start it up again now though :(
as far as I can tell there's a baseball calm on a tennis court, allied with bacteria, and when they change the programmer the birds beak doesn't change.
I agree wholeheartedly.
That one lasted 11 minutes.
But then I gave up about 2 mins in so maybe this is the same one minus a bunch of repetitive bullshit.
So I'm going to need either a transcript or some form of interpretive dance if you want a rebuttal.
It's just base straw-manning.
They state that Dawinian Evolution means that a cow must be able to evolve into a human (different 'kinds', not the same species, you see?).
Then aggressively interview a bunch of scientists to ask for examples of things evolving to different 'kinds' that they've seen, but the only examples given are bacteria evolving to different forms of bacteria or birds evolving to different types of birds, "It's still a bird, though! HA IN YOUR FACE!!!"
And then there seemed to be a weird leap where they were pointing out that because these guys hadn't actually SEEN this evolution happen they were relying on faith in the process just like people who believe in creationism are relying on faith...
Dunno, it's so muddled it's hard to know what it's trying to say. Kudos to them for disabling comments. :D
It's like they're having an argument from several centuries ago. Anyone who believes in God should surely be quite happy to say, "Yeah, evolution happened but God caused, it yo," which means you don't even have to get in such fucking flap about it.
I don't get why they have to dance around the point. Just say God's behind evolution. Quandary solved.
Also, how can they lampoon faith and lack of evidence when that's what Christianity is? I mean, I get they're saying that to point out science saying that about religion, but it's like WE'RE ALL STUPID, rather than arguing their case.
Logic and religion never mix.
saying that someone has no more reason to "believe" in evolution than believing in a literal interpretation of the bible etc. I don't anyone (at least on camera) dealt with the use of the word belief very well.
that god made everything perfectly to begin with? So the idea that things were sloely honed over time suggests that God had no idea what he was doing and things just happened by accident.
Makes god look like a bit daft
so they have this funny picture of t-rexs and donkeys living in harmony but that was before the fall. Something about Mark e Smith. They sometimes accept what they call micro-evolution (within kinds) lol.
that doesn't mean anything you Kiwi shithead
New Moker thread

You know that if you start dragging in people from outside DiS into theads we're going to have to delete them, so could you please try not to do so?
This is literally the one thing that 100% of people on the site do not want to happen, and you are absolutely smart enough to know that.

Can someone explain why "dragging in people from outside DiS into theads (sic)" is "the one thing that 100% of people on the site do not want to happen".
PS - Didn't actually friend a random on facebook. But good thing to delete the thread.... just in case I did?
PPS - Look at all the social media buttons down there designed to drag people from outside DiS into thread. No one touch them or they'll get banned.
TBH I think moker was more concerned about his own stupidity about posting a link to someone's (a non-DiSer's) personal Facebook rather than you (claiming to) befriend her (which was also a concern of his, quite rightly so).
He's quite rightly pointed out he should have just posted a link to the video and asked me to delete the thread, which I did.
Perhaps, MAYBE, you shouldn't have said you'd "friended" her if you actually didn't. Just sayin'.
In any case, surely it's no biggie.
I made a mistake and put someone's personal shit on DiS when posting drunk (all the cool kids do it).
Whether or not you befriended them or were going to mail them the link was secondary.
Chill ya boots.
calm down angry mob
It was just the PM and some of the comments above.
Just read the comments above - you called me a bell. Guess I do have a problem with you. Fight?
but you didn't and you were merely joshing.
So I take it back.
Also, yes to the fight. Perhaps we could make it a big DiS event. You know, training, build up, trash talk, betting. Might be a good project.
There's only one person overreacting in this thread.
"Link her to this thread" is worth deleting a thread.
If moker realised he shouldn't have posted a friend of his facebook and wanted it deleted then fair enough. I just made a joke about it.
"Can someone explain why "dragging in people from outside DiS into theads (sic)" is "the one thing that 100% of people on the site do not want to happen"."
i guess here it's just some crossed wires over you intending it as a joke and others thinking you were being serious
NO BIG DEAL
don't want people from outside DiS being dragged onto DiS.
I remember that thread where some of the guys from tool academy made accounts and started joking around. There was always the cat_race thread were (and I have no idea what was going on with that) someone from his life started posting - in that instance the content matter was a bit dark but the fact she was an 'outsider' wasn't, in itself, a bad thing.
If I HAD linked the thread to moker's friend, and you actually COULD sign-up an account and start posting with 48 hours and this girl DID have a go at moker, this would have all been DiS gold.
Obviously I wouldn't do that because this woman's details were made public when they shouldn't have been.
if i'm having a conversation with sam about how much of a dick i think dave is, i don't want sam to call dave over to join in the conversation about how much of a dick i think he is.
idk, something like :
"sorry, that was just a joke - I meant it to mean something like "link her to this thread" but it clearly didn't come off that way, hope I didn't freak moker out or anything."
I mean you're welcome to continue taking this brilliantly histrionic dummy-spit route but you might want to just stop embarrassing yourself?
stop trying to justify it. Its over.
Part of the reason he asked he to was because you said you were going to friend request her.
Of course things would have been different if you'd said "link her to this thread", but, well, you didn't say that?
I don't have a problem with moker wanting to the thread delete (seems sensible)
I don't have a problem with the thread being deleted (again, sensible)
Bit narked about the PM telling me I'm not allowed to joke about certain things on here.
suggest some yoga breaths and a few re-reads of the thread until you can get your head around it.
"You know that if you start dragging in people from outside DiS into theads we're going to have to delete them, so could you please try not to do so?"
to which a reasonable response would have been something like this:
but feel free to keep having a cop if you like.
Not encouraging people to join up to DiS to shoot the shit. Dragging them in, like someone emailing you shitty Daily Mail articles in the hope you'll sign up to comment against all the mouthbreathers.
anyway, can we just go back to talking about 'kind'
I just want them GONE
xylopwn, FUCKING xylopwn, posted a link to that Dawson's Creek fella weeping and somehow got loads of thises. That is what these mods have done to DiS.
At any other organisation, heads would roll.
Not to send women unsolicited messages on the internet, who can we trust?
but I've no clue if anyone replied (probably not).
Basically the other day I saw someone (on FB) compare eating meat with being a rapist.
Left a really bad taste in my mouth and I deleted them soon after. Really horrible :(
Was it roasted meat?
I bought an aubergine last night, i'll let you know how it goes!
have you decided what's going in/on it yet?
and they assumed I was being genuine.
The joke of the post was - ha ha I am totally going to link her to this thread.
Not - oh man, gonna send me some dick pics to this HPOA.
Unfortunately, your shit-for-fingers typing made it look like you were friending her so you could start a massive barney with her over her beliefs on that thread in Facebook.
So I haven't really seen the thread and the fall out it might have caused.
But other than that my only posts in the thread were basically saying, 'you can't argue with these people, that video is just so people can feel good about what they already think'.
because I know how impossible you find it to leave these things alone.
1 and 2 say 'Don't ever bother arguing with these people
3 says 'Ha ha, gonna send her this thread on facebook'.
And you assume I'm really just doing it to argue with her?
and his reputation precedes him, until this morning I've seen/heard no evidence of it yet he doesn't seem to be able to live it down. Even what's happened this morning doesn't seem to have been that bad.
[link to diagram]
And that was majorly creepy on his part, but I can't help but think some guys on here are only complaining because he went and did something you could only imagine doing/wanting to do. The more outgoing on DIS often tends to get a telling off. We're not all indie bed wetters ;~)
I'd hope no one on here dreams of doing that.
Honestly didn't even look at the photos on the facebook link.
then who can we trust?
Seriously, just a simple "whoops, didn't mean it like that, sorry" would probably have been massively beneficial to you compared to going Full Hatstand. Although admittedly much less entertaining.
Ok, it's a fair cop, you've got us there.
We're all well jel of ho-fo's slick moves with the chicks.
I like kissing girls. I don't mind people knowing that. Does sometimes riles up DiS something rotten. But the creepy PMs and stuff, that was out of line and over but its mostly guys who still criticise me (see songs_about_ducking above) and I often get the feeling there is some jealousy.
All I hope is that I've never hurt anyone or upset them. Think I said some mean things to you actually mits. I apologise.
But I met some great people from DiS, went out with one amazing person for over a year and loved her very much, met some other great people too. Not really gonna feel guilty about being me.
was that the message you sent her?
- Adolf Hitler
seriously, at some point you're going to have to try to shake off the lingering odour of the first year debate team.
You just chimed in and repeated my words as if they were said by Hitler (is that what they teach you in second year debate team?) and I posted a link to Goodwins Law.
Apologies for any lingering odour. But seriously, why are you such a colossal cunt?
Well that seems uncalled for.
But you'be just been pretty relentless, in this thread and over.
I was just tried to find the last thread where I asked if I had upset you or that you were talking like you knew me.
Maybe its nothing person and you're like to to everyone.
I don't think you're a particularly bad type at heart, apart from your inexplicable and shockingly cruel baiting of bamnan.
You seem keen to try and shake this reputation you've made for yourself, and it honestly might be worth reflecting on people's reactions to you in this thread. a simple "my bad" would have prevented this whole thing.
Anyhow, good luck with it all.
genuinely do care about him but he's his own worst enemy and glad he's left the boards.
I don't really care to shake this reputation. It is a bit confusing sometimes how people respond to me, but when I realise people are treating my like I really this online person I made for myself in 2006 its fine. If they know me so little to think I am like that then I can't really be upset by that.
I don't think I did anything bad. Moker did worse by posting someone's facebook up on DiS and I just made a harmless joke about it and you wet the bed. Not really going to apologise for doing nothing wrong.
if your read of this entire thread is that other people wet the bed, I don't know what to tell you.
Maybe part of my frustration is everyone seems to be treating like a sex-pest still and its confused me because I know I'm not but I see everyone else thinks different.
tbh, I didn't really know what I thought you were doing. Then I fell asleep and when I woke up this thread had happened.
Mostly on people's right arms hanging down.
The flames look good, though.
but it all looks a little too clean an HD for my liking
I get that sometimes looking at people irl
The film was soooooo shit.
or just say he did? has this already been established?
I can't sit here reading every post of every threa....oh wait.
Not that the mods could know either way. I only said I did.
take from that what you will
One where we all lay into Ho_Fo and another where we mock creationists.
Mods sort this out.
This post doesn't belong in either so just delete it or whatever.
im approaching a double century here
Someone help me out here, I'm struggling.
It's a shame Darwin gets all the credit really.

I'm not on Facebook.
That makes you worse than those who never joined and those who are still on it.
If not I'm calling dibs.
that's a direct attack. even brusma's pitched in!
fine then. I am so above this.
JFC suggests a level of disgruntlement, and he then goes on to state something he could only know by actually reading the thread. Aloofness level: 2 Fonzies out of 10.
It doesn't matter now anyway - yes_ won the thread a few posts up.
"has meths posted yet?"
I've made a few cheap digs at hofo but now I feel bad because I'm not sure if it's gone a bit not-so-tongue-in-cheek anymore. So sorry hofo if that's the case. You massive sexpest ;).
It's all moker's fault anyway.
now I'm just confused.
