Eight years on here without a single disagreement. Then three public arguments in the last 4 months. "I love and treasure individuals as I meet them; I loathe and despise the groups they identify with and belong to" - George Carlin
Ignore the next bit, I wrote it when angry and I don't have the heart to delete it quite yet.
DiS is a self-governed collective of internet goons ruled by the fearless and merciless iron fist of left wing rhetoric and reactionary mob rule. Dare contradict this insidious consensus and you shall be vilified, mocked and ousted (all comments against you shall be “this’d” by the informal de facto leaders of the DiS hive mind). As with all self-satisfied throngs, judgementalism and hypocrisy run rampant beneath the thin veneer of presentability. When one dares expose or highlight such hypocrisy, they are ignored and isolated, and as such the ugly head of contradiction will be pushed back under the covers by a self-congratulatory group charlatans and liars as the booming jungle beat goes on. Here's an argument I had recently which sums up what I say talking about: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4418917 And another http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4426779 Here's another: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4427569 -- -- Saying that, most people are very nice and funny.
