Thank you so much for the long overdue troll labels.

Let's hope those dork trolls can take a hint and leave this place.

So "ZenDog" has been banned? All I can say is: what took you so long? I've never seen so much garbage and namecalling. He acted like a nine year old brat.

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (1278) 1 month ago

zendog is a major pulse in this forum

[-] 1 points by UnFriendlyObserverC (20) 1 month ago

"A major pulse". Why?

Please give us the unabridged version.

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (1278) 1 month ago

he's a human to start

has a page, writes poetry

yes, I realize everyone who posts here is human but I wouldn't know it

as of late, he's be presenting a prejudicial view of the Palestinians. This has provided a greater perception of the forces tat drives the current tragedy.

9? you give him too much credit

Ya, why so long? That Trash guy had warned us about the Twinkle Team 2 years ago. They were finally beheaded all together. Finally. Better late than never.

[-] 0 points by justinTime (-6) from New York, NY 1 month ago

Yup, and the rest of the twinkle team also. Jart finally realized Trashy's intuition about them was correct all along. He tried to boot them off 2 years ago, but they had managed to convince everyone he was the troll when they were. They had even planted all kinds of lies, and made fake Trashy characters to attack him. I still remember the huge fight with EnglandPatriot vs the Twinkle Team. They had fooled almost everyone for the longest time.

So happy to see these trolls banned. The people that controlled and dominated this site were far from true occupiers.

Hopefully the True occupiers will return. Such as Builder, gnomoney, elf3, shadz66, etc. We do not need DNC (or RNC) cheerleaders controlling this site.

agreed - i heard shadz was banned - anybody know anything

[-] 6 points by eklutna (101) 1 month ago

Shadz should definitely NOT have been banned! As for the others, their banning was long overdue.

[-] 3 points by flip (6754) 1 month ago

Agreed

He's just like shooz. He picks a user and constantly attacks him for weeks. then he changes user. He's more interested in personal vendettas than to help OWS as a whole.

It's not about content. People can espouse the views they want. It's about how they share those views on this site. Shadz66 had bad habits of getting into childish personal fights that would never end. It makes the site look bad.

Shadz is nothing like shooz, and how anyone can say that is beyond me. From my POV shadz exemplifies what Occupy is about. His contributions on here have been immeasurable.

There were a handful of neocons from the twinkle team who wanted to preserve the corrupt status quo. They made the most vulgar attacks on him, day in and day out, and on many of the rest of us us as well.....and they knew that by taking shadz down, they would be well on their way to having complete control of this forum. shadz resisted their efforts often with little help from the rest of us, and he did it mostly with a style that I wish I had.

If this forum is going to continue with any kind of legitimacy, shadz needs to be reinstated, otherwise we should just let it die.

[-] 2 points by Renneye (3780) 1 month ago

Hear hear!!!

Very well said.

Jart, please reinstate Shadz.

Good to see you here, dear man!

[-] 2 points by eklutna (101) 1 month ago

Thanks Renny & right back at you dear young lady, from The Land of The Midnight Sun.

[-] 3 points by Renneye (3780) 1 month ago

It's funny, I was just talking with someone about you a couple of hours ago...and then here you are after so long away from the forum.

What a strange and sudden turn of events on the forum, eh? With the exception of Shadz being (unfairly) banned...I, and apparently several other people, are fairly pleased.

It'll be interesting to hear fresh and multiple perspectives again. However, there is that sense of "waiting for the other shoe to drop", isn't there? You gotta wonder what prompted jart to do this, and when she did it. Who knows, that may be revealed, at some point.

Hopefully, exciting times ahead. I feel a strangely warm sense of community unfolding and emerging once more.

Ahhh, 'The Land of the Midnight Sun'. I remember those nights well.

[-] 4 points by eklutna (101) 1 month ago

Yes it really has been a "strange and sudden turn of events" here on the forum, and like you I'm kinda waiting for the other shoe to drop. I have no idea why jart did this now, but other than banning shadz, it was long overdue. If she wants this forum to live up to its potential, I think you would agree with me, there is no better person to have on board than shadz. Then I guess all we can do is hope that the forum mirrors the good the people are doing in the rest of our struggle more closely, and also do our part to make this a more welcoming place for people to come to. Good Night Renny.

[-] 2 points by Renneye (3780) 1 month ago

Ditto! We'll see what tomorrow brings, and if the Shadz situation changes for the better.

Goodnight

sleep well & sweet dreams

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (1278) 1 month ago

no

let this forum be it's own entity

not some mirror of something else

[-] 2 points by eklutna (101) 1 month ago

Merely by its make-up, being in the cyber world and not the virtual world this forum will be its "own entity." That's not to say that it should not "mirror" or compliment the good the people in the rest of our struggle are involved with. In fact that should be our goal for the most part, don't you think?

[-] 2 points by MattHolck0 (1278) 1 month ago

a true compliment takes careful thought

[-] 1 points by jenniferredshoes (-3) from Brooklyn, NY 1 month ago

careful thought is already a true compliment

they have been both feeding me links to articles which I appreciate

[-] 5 points by Renneye (3780) 1 month ago

I don't know shadz' email, but I think I know someone who does. I'll see if I can contact. He shouldn't have been banned, imo. His dedication to the 99% stands on it's own merits and his behaviour wasn't even close to what the others did. Hopefully Jart will hear that from the other regulars as well, and he'll be reinstated with original moniker.

[-] 3 points by flip (6754) 1 month ago

agreed - not even close

[-] 0 points by aNewStart (4) from New York, NY 1 month ago

jart banned the entire twinkle team: shooz, DKAtoday, ZenDog, GirlFriday, shadz66. She even destroyed the users for everyone except GirlFriday who wasn't coming to the site anymore. They were all working together to destroy this forum. Paid. Time for a new beginning. This site can finally be what it was meant to be.

[-] 3 points by Renneye (3780) 1 month ago

I miss Builder, and the others, too.

So many left. Hopefully they'll come back.

We need, unbiased, objective, impartial, unprejudiced, nonpartisan, neutral, equitable, fair-minded, open-minded, dispassionate, egalitarian...in other words... "moderate" moderators. :-)

[-] 4 points by aNewStart (4) from New York, NY 1 month ago

Damn straight. We should all contact them. Anyone have their emails and stuff? If you do, invite them back.

We need a big party! A new start party!

Care for a dance Renneye! Let's get this party started...

Below is a comment of mine that was Removed by shooz. It included no more or no less than shown. Yes, shooz was definitely a troll. As was DKA, Zendog, GF.

They all attacked any ideas that countered the establishment status quo.They only supported methods that would have been exhausted by the duopoly machine.

We do not need to tweak our corrupt political system. We need a major overhaul. We need to banish all our present corrupt political leaders. Just as the main trolls have been banished from this site.

"Here is a list that will cure the Disease:

  • Get ALL private money out of politics. it fosters corruption in govt and society.
  • Eliminate ALL political parties.They serve to divert loyalty away from the people.
  • Eliminate ownership of the news media by agenda driven entities. This leads to a public that is misinformed and subjected to propaganda.
  • Implement Federal Referendums and direct democracy."

No doubt about it, no doubt about it. The twinkle team did horrible damage to this forum. The number of people they banned is in the triple digits. Just horrible.

It really boggles the mind why jart loved them so much and gave them so much power. She was either blind because they were such good infiltrators, or perhaps she worked with them? I guess we'll never know.

The important thing is she finally came to her senses. Maybe now the forum can become what it always should have been.
